12/19 vs. Moses Brown School –

In our last game of the 2019 season before turning the page over to 2020
— we played host to Moses Brown School. MB is a good program with good
foundations and kids who play aggressive, so this would be a good test for
our Roosters. They kicked off the game with a 11-0 before we were finally
able to get our first points of the game more than halfway through the
first half.

Moses Brown held a 16-6 halftime lead. Our team attempted to refocus in
the second half, but the mistakes kept on accumulating and MB took
advantage, coasting in the second half to a 49-15 victory.

MB –    16  33  – 49
RISD –  6   9   – 15

Jayden E.  – 9 Points, 13 Rebounds

12/17 @ Marie Philip School – Postponed due to weather. Make-up date TBA –

12/19 vs. Moses Brown School –

Our girls’ basketball team had one more game on our home court before we
wrapped up for the holidays break, with Moses Brown School coming to our
gym. We played each other last year to a close 20-15 defeat, so we were
hoping to get the best of them this time around.

Moses Brown threw a new 2-3 defensive look on us that our girls hadn’t
prepared for and it worked to Moses Brown’s advantage as they ran out to a
20-2 halftime lead. We were able to adjust at halftime and kept up with
Moses Brown, but was never able to eat away at the 18-point halftime
deficit despite a late rally in the closing minutes. Our girls lost 33-15.

MB –    20   13  – 33
RISD –   2   13  – 15

Olivia C. – 6 Points, 12 Rebounds

random deafsports thoughts

A fan asked DeafDigest Sports editor if he
watches deaf sports videos?

The response is:
either rarely or not at all

Reason:
Watching these videos is time consuming and
DeafDigest Sports is always in a rush to
complete daily editions, if at all possible
by noon or 1 PM every day!

Copying and pasting is much quicker and easier
that way.

Thank you for understanding.

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!

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

Illinois sports

newspaper story, as is

ISD to discontinue most athletic offerings

JACKSONVILLE — The superintendent of the Illinois School for the Deaf in
Jacksonville has announced that five sports will be eliminated starting in
the 2020-21 academic year because of dwindling involvement.

ISD will cut football, volleyball, cheerleading and boys and girls
basketball.

Julee M. Nist, ISD superintendent, wrote in a Dec. 9 press release, “It is
with a heavy heart that I have to announce ISD will not be able to offer a
few sports for next year due to lack of student interest. Our numbers are
just not there to be able to field a team in the following sports:
football, volleyball, basketball and cheerleading.”

Nist said it was a possibility for a while.

“I was informed that this decision would be coming when I first started
working at ISD almost three years ago. I am just as disappointed in this
as you are and truly hope in the future we will have enough students
interested in bringing these sports back.”

ISD started playing eight-man football games back in 2014 and was 2-4 in
2019. The Tigers’ final IHSA playoff appearance came in 1998.

note:
it is understood that ISD will restore these sports in few years
because of good middle school enrollment numbers. DeafDigest Sports
hopes ISD will come back to this great Deaf Schools Sports family
in due time.

Tom Coughlin, not deaf, was fired by Jacksonville
Jaguars.

As a young man during the late sixties and early
seventies, he was the head coach of the RIT club
football team.

A few of his players were NTID students.

One past NTID football player said about
Coughlin:

“he was tough but fair”

interesting comment by a deaf rugby player

Lynn Bryant, a British deaf woman, that plays rugby
with her hearing teammates, played rugby with the deaf
for the first time in her life.

She said:

I can really focus on the game instead of having to really look
at someone’s face to see what they’re saying

She is getting ready with her new deaf teammates for
the World Deaf Rugby XV 2020 competition.  Deaf Rugby
does not follow the international deaf eligibility
rules and has never been part of the Deaflympics.

Still, Deaf Rugby is deaf rugby.

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.

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.

BRYN ATHYN, Pa. – Gallaudet University led from start-to-finish here
Monday night as it handed Bryn Athyn College a 76-64 defeat in a
non-conference women’s basketball game.

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.

The RRC Classic was very successful.  It is a fact that our volunteers
were charming and showed compassion for our students, parents and fans.
This weekend reminded
me that I am so grateful to work for NMSD and be part of the community.  I
also wanted to say….many thanks and hats off to our Fabulous RRC
chairperson KIM OLIVAS
AND HER COMMITTEE & VOLUNTEERS!  Also thanks to  the Student Life dept,

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.

busy coaches and busy athletic directors?

some coaches and some athletic directors
have told DeafDigest Sports editor that they
were too busy to send in scores for DeafDigest
Sports.

Too busy just to key in game score, name of opponent,
updated won/lost record – which only takes maybe
2-3 minutes of typing time?

Yes, some key in very fast; some key in very slow.

Sigh!

Bison clipped by Cardinals, 85-62

WASHINGTON – It was a short trip for the Gallaudet University women’s
basketball team on Saturday evening as the Bison ventured over to the
Brentwood area to take on The Catholic University of America. The Bison
fell to the Cardinals, 85-62, in a non-conference game on Franny Murray
Court.

Gallaudet (1-6) played from behind the majority of the game against
Catholic (9-1). GU freshman forward Cassidy Perry (Frederick, Md.) scored
the first three baskets for the buff and blue as the Bison led for the
first several minutes. Catholic responded with a 16-8 run to take a 20-14
lead after the first quarter.

The Cardinals took a 20-point lead into halftime up 46-26.

In the second half, Catholic kept the Bison at bay and led by double
digits for the remainder of the game. GU outscored Catholic, 19-16, in the
third quarter while the host tallied 23 points in the fourth quarter to 17
by the visitors.

Three different Bison finished in double-figures led by freshman Sunita
Schmidjorg (Austin, Texas), who scored a game-high 17 points. Junior
Jakkisha Smith (Dallas, Texas) tallied 13 points while Perry finished with
10 points and six rebounds. Junior guard Kendall Hudson (Blissfield,
Mich.) added eight points, eight rebounds, two assists and two steals in
the loss.

random deafsports talk

What is the most amazing deaf feat in pro sports?

Is it Derrick Coleman’s strangest touchdown, possibly
in history of NFL?

or is it:

Curtis Pride’s major league debut?

Coleman caught a touchdown pass; actually the QB
attempted a pass to someone else, but the ball hit
the facemask of a defender and floated into the arms
of the very shocked Coleman who happened to be in the
end zone.

Pride’s first four major league hits was a single,
a double, a triple and a homer (not in first four at bats,
just his first four hits)

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.

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.

FSDB vs Oak Hall – 12/12/19

Final Score: 28 – 30

You know what they say about bittersweet. It is exactly how we would
describe the game tonight. It was sweet all the way to the third quarter
until it became bitter
when we lost our lead with 3 minutes left in the fourth quarter. Maybe it
was the pressure of facing an undefeated Oak Hall with their 6-0, or maybe
it was because
we were too excited that we rushed without thinking while maintaining the
lead. We missed few easy shots that could help us win easily. The fact
still remained that
our Lady Dragons truly worked hard tonight. They poured everything they
got onto the floor. They just could not secure the W.  Our Lady Dragons
ended the night with
a loss of 28 to their 30. But, while it was a devastating loss, it taught
them a true lesson – “Losing is part of the game. If you never lose, you
are never truly
tested, and never forced to grow” (David Sirlin). After talking about it
in the locker room, the girls pushed back their tears and said, “This loss
is not going to
stop them.” If anything, it literally fired them up. Already we are
looking forward to playing against St. Joseph Academy next week, which is
going to be another
big game. Exactly what we wanted to see inside the locker room. Lady
Dragons, we truly are proud of you tonight! Go Lady Dragons!

We lost tonight (79-25). It was our first home game and our fans were
awesome. Our boys appreciated fans’ support. We were trying our best to
stay in the game in
first half. We did good on defense end but we allowed too many second
chance after they missed their first shot. We need to work on rebound on
our defense end.
There are still plenty room for us to improve. “Practice makes perfect” as
we are getting better every game.

the

random deafsports talk

The international deaf ice hockey community
has to thank a parliamentary blunder for
having this sport officially approved for
Winter Deaflympics.

A joke?

No.

At that time in the early seventies, the
Deaflympics bylaws required five participating
nations to have a new sport approved for
Deaflympics.

At that time, only three nations indicated
having hockey as their sport – USA, Russia
and Canada. Two more nations were needed.

A delegate made a motion to accept hockey
as a Winter Deaflympics sport. The president
should have ruled it out of order due to lack
of sufficient nations. The president made a
blunder – accepting the motion.

It was quickly passed much to the shock
(but elation) of the US Deaf Hockey Association.

The president admitted he blew it.

US Deaf Hockey Association? It operated
Deaf Hockey in the early seventies before
it closed up for good. AHIHA took it over
since then.

led Madison Park of Oakland 37-4 @ the half. 31 fouls were called in the

By half-time, Esther Biser had pulled down 9 boards, grabbed 9 steals,
gave out 3 assists & scored 10 of her 12 points. Also by half, Talia Boren
