Gallaudet Bison reach Sweet 16 round in Helmet Bowl III, vote for Gallaudet daily

WASHINGTON – Gallaudet University is one of 16 teams left standing in
Helmet Bowl III presented by Helmet Tracker. The Bison are the No. 2 seed
in the South Region and are going up against No. 4 seed University of
Richmond in the third round. The winner will advance to the quarterfinal
round of the national tournament to find the best football helmet in the
country.

People can vote by logging onto www.helmetbowl.com or via this direct
link: https://helmettracker.com/helmet-bowl-iii-national-championship/.

Fans are encouraged to use all of their devices and browsers to vote, no
need to login, until the polls close on Monday, Dec. 23, at noon (EST).

Gallaudet’s helmet won its conference (Eastern Collegiate Football
Conference) for a third straight year and was seeded second in the South
Region. In the first round, GU dispatched No. 15 seed Austin College
Kangaroos (61 percent to 39 percent). In the second round, Gallaudet took
down No. 9 seed Ole Miss from the Southeastern Conference (SEC) by the
margin of 56 percent to 44 percent.

Gallaudet won Helmet Bowl I, two years ago, and reached the “Sweet 16”
round last year before losing to Lafayette College. Dickinson College
(NCAA Division III) won Helmet Bowl II last year.

Fans can vote daily from all of their devices here:

note:
Years ago when football was a young collegiate sport, Gallaudet
played against many colleges that have since then moved up to
NCAA-I – such as Navy, Virginia, Maryland, Georgetown. It was
a level playing field at that time. Always nice to see Gallaudet
advance in the Helmet Bowl, beating these NCAA-I programs!

St Mary’s girls basketball

I-90 Classic this year featured a Coaches vs Cancer fundraiser in which
SMSD
and RSD collaboratively collected $1,000 for the American Cancer Society.

The Lady Bisons traded shots with The Wildcats in the opening few minutes.
The action was intense and everything a rivalry is made up of.  Both
teams
worked through their jitters.  Kioney Alvira-Jurado got herself in foul
trouble and RSD went into half time up by four points.

The second half started out quick again and the fouls continued to rack up
on The Lady Bisons.  This affected our play and RSD managed to take the
lead.  Alvira-Jurado fouled out late in the third but the Bisons were not
out of it.  Cami Cole went on a late game run and hit 6 consecutive shots
down the stretch but it wasn’t enough to pull out a victory.

Cami Cole finished with 19 points.  Kioney Alvira-Jurado had 9 points.
Elise Watson and Julia Bronneberg each had 2 points.

Record ….2 wins  3 losses.  Next game is January 7th against West Seneca
Christian.

South Dakota High School Basketball Hall of Fame in 2020.

part of newspaper story

13 individuals selected for induction into the South Dakota High School
Basketball Hall of Fame in 2020

Janel Birrenkott, Frederick, Md. (Lemmon 1982): After excelling at Lemmon,
where she averaged 25 points per game as a senior, Birrenkott scored 1,352
career points at Northern State University. She led the Northern Sun
Conference in scoring with 20 points per game in 1986. Birrenkott
represented the United States in the Deaf Olympics.

note:
Janel also played women’s pro basketbal for a short time. It was by
lucky circumstances that she came into contact with the deaf, which
opened up her world – sign language, professional opportunities
and athletic opportunities, network of deaf acquaintances. DeafDigest
Sports editor watched her play for the first time at a national
deaf women’s tournament; one of her teammates said, as a pre-game
warning:

“Keep an eye on our secret weapon”

At that time no one heard of her, but just almost overnight she
became the nation’s best known deaf female basketball player!

She was simply awesome, outclassing all these deaf women on the
basketball floor.

You have read the headline under Gallaudet track above in this edition

Gallaudet and Howard set to host Bison Classic on April 11, 2020

Whose Bison Classic it is?
The Gallaudet mascot is Bison

The Howard mascot is Bison

Gallaudet is NCAA-III
Howard is NCAA-I

Both Gallaudet and Howard are federally-funded
universities.

In years past, there were Bison vs Bison athletic
contests in almost all sports.

Glad the Bison and the Bison are working together
to promote a great track and meet event this
coming spring!
