Gallaudet sports

part of newspaper story

St. Mary’s College set to join the North Eastern Athletic Conference in
two years

note:
the story said St Mary’s is looking forward to resumption
of old rivalry with Gallaudet in almost all sports.
Gallaudet withdraw from CAC to join NEAC; long time CAC
member St Mary’s is following suit in two years.

It is a way of collegiate sports life that colleges leave
conferences to join other conferences and so on.

FSDB vs St. Joseph Academy Flashes – 12/16/19

Final Score: 32 – 42

This week, we find myself in a position we don’t enjoy: the Lady Dragons
came up on the losing end of another big game against our rival school –
St. Joseph
Academy. We were only two points down in 1st quarter. We fought a hard
battle as we had 4 points led in 2nd quarter. With little mistakes, the
halftime ended with
19-19. After first two minutes of 3rd quarter, we swished 4 points. We
couldn’t hold the battle as we turned the ball over few times allowing the
Flashes to go on
11-0 run to 23 – 28. We also missed some easy lay ups and shots that could
give us easy six points. With under three minutes remaining in 4th quarter
and we were
down by 4 points, their best shooters, Jessamy and Gabby, passed and
swished every possession. We were just dribbling, over dribbling with some
silly turnovers. We
tried as hard as we could try. Our defense was not the best that night.
Jessamy had four 3-point while Gabby had two 3 – point. Both girls had 34
points total. They
had us well-scouted. It was an emotional game for us, but we also
understand that losing a game truly isn’t the end of the world. The quote
coaches shared last
night was from John Wooden. He said, “Losing is only temporary and not all
encompassing. You must simply study it, learn from it and try hard not to
lose the same
way again. Then you must have the self control to forget about it.” We
will work together to improve, and we will find a way to achieve success.

Rochester girls’ basketball

We had a busy weekend hosting both PSD and NYSD.  Friday we were up
against PSD and excited to play our first Deaf game of the season.  The
game was evenly matched
all the way through with the lead changing hands several times.  It was a
battle but the wildcats come out with the victory 41-40.  Emma Kane led
the way with a
career high 18 points.
On Saturday we took on Fanwood and struggled to find our rhythm shooting.
Several open looks just did not go in.  This game was also close going
back and forth.
Julia Ott scored a bucket with 7 seconds to go to force overtime.  We had
some good opportunities in overtime but still could not get the ball to
drop in the hoop!
Wildcats lose in overtime 36-30.

Record: 3-2

random deafsports talk

Florida is different from other states in that it sponsors
“between seasons” sports. An example is girls’ soccer which
is played in December and January – right in middle of the
winter season (basketball and wrestling). FSDB has been
fielding girls’ soccer teams for years and some of its
players moved on to play soccer at Gallaudet.
