St. Mary’s Girl’s Basketball Results

The Lady Bison’s defeated Fanwood this evening 34-19 for their first victory of
the season.  The game started out slow with both teams feeling each other out.
Each team struggled to generate any offense in the first 8 minutes of play.  The
Lady Bisons played well defensively and made it tough for Fanwood to get any
good looks.  The score was 14-10 at halftime with the Lady Bison trailing.
Kioney Alvira-Jurado pumped up the team at halftime with a great speech.  “This
was our house”… was her message and she and the other girls came out swinging.
They outscored Fanwood 24-5 in the second half and cruised on to the win.

Kioney Alvira lead all scorers with 14 points. Laci Stoffer had 12 points.  Cami
Cole chipped in 6 points and Julia Bronneberg had 2 points.

Record 1-2….next game is Saturday Dec. 14th vs Pennsylvania School for the Deaf

random deafsports talk

Several schools have suspended their athletic programs
due to low numbers. The latest is Illinois SD.

At Illinois, the suspending of sports is hopefully not
permanent since they have good numbers in the middle
school ranks.

The big question is – would the suspending sports do a
lot of damage in that it may be hard to restart a sport?

Yes and no. For some schools, they recover quickly. For
other schools they may not recover.

Oklahoma SD dropped football in the forties and restarted it
in 1949. The 1949 team had a 5-1 record and the 1950 team finished
runner ups in the state championship finals (11 man).

DeafDigest Sports editor thinks it all depends on two things –
strong campus support (faculty, staff and administration)
for school athletics. The other thing is – having great
athletes around.
