Gallaudet (2-6) snaps a five-game losing streak to wrap-up the fall
semester schedule. This is the third straight game Bryn Athyn (2-8) has
dropped this month.

The Bison starting five finished in double figures as junior guard Kendall
Hudson (Blissfield, Mich.) scored a season best 20 points to go with eight
rebounds, two assists and two steals. Freshmen Sunita Schmidjorg (Austin,
Texas) and Cassidy Perry (Frederick, Md.) netted 16 and 12 points,
respectively. Perry completed the double-double with 10 rebounds (nine on
the defensive end). Junior guard Emelia Beldon (Frederick, Md.) recorded a
season best 13 points to go with five assists, four steals and four
boards. Junior guard Jakkisha Smith (Dallas, Texas) was the fifth starter
in double digits with 10 points, six rebounds, five assists and two
steals.

We entered the championship game with a record of 3-0. Our players were

strong defense game
plan, and we were prepared for PDSD’s defense. We started the first

had some foul trouble
by halftime, but our girls finished the game strong with a score of 29-17.
Mya Malone finished the game with 12 points, Martina Rodarte-Estrada had 7

giving their all on court this past weekend. They truly played with their
hearts. The MVP

medal. Each one of our players contributed to the games throughout the
weekend. We want to
say thank you to the NMSD community for supporting us throughout the
tournament, and be sure to congratulate our players for their hard work!

random deafsports talk

A tweet said:
This day in 1961 American ML baseball player William Hoy died,
known for being the most accomplished deaf player in history.

Most accomplished deaf player in history?

Curtis Pride played 11 seasons in the majors; hit
a home run for the Yankees and his first four major
league hits went for the cycle. He hit .300 in one season.

Dummy Taylor pitched 9 seasons with a career record of
116-106, including a 20 win season (21-15) in 1904.
Legendary manager said Taylor was one of the three best
pitchers he ever had (two others were hall of famers)

Hoy was very accomplished, so were Pride and Taylor.
