FSDB VBB MD Tournament Results 1/25

Hello Dragon Fans.  For the 68th Annual Mason Dixon Boys Basketball Tournament,
we travelled to Kentucky School for the Deaf in Danville.

We were seeded #3 going into the 9-man tournament.  There are 11 schools in the
Mason Dixon conference, but 2 couldn’t make it- ENC and Virginia.  Last year we
finished in 3rd with Mississippi claiming the crown and Alabama being the
runner-up.

This year, we were able to advance to the Championship game, but fell short to
Alabama in overtime.  We trailed for the whole game until mounting a furious
rally to tie the game up at 38-38.  We had the ball last but couldn’t convert to
end the game.  In overtime, Alabama had our number and built too large of a lead
for us to get in an offensive groove.

Matthew Guillou, Marcus Guillou, and Luis Merced were selected on the
all-tournament team.  Justin Cabrera sank 8 of 12 3-pointers in the 3-pt
shooting contest to take home the crown!

1/23 vs #6 Georgia School for the Deaf. W 50-5.
Halftime score: 32-4

random deafsports talk

Years ago deaf club basketball teams constantly
talked about one issue all the time.

What was the issue?

Weather!

This meant being careful in not scheduling distant
games with other deaf clubs that required a lot
of traveling during bad weather!

We lost 61-39 but this game is a great way to boost our confidence before
our Great Plains School for the Deaf (GPSD) basketball tournament at
Oklahoma next weekend.
We are improving with our ball movement and execute our plays. We saw a
much
more fast break from this game but we missed a lot of easy layups. We will
need to work on reading the ball and box out for a rebound.  Rebound is
one
of the important factors in the game to win a ball game. We have some time
to practice those little things before gpsd weekend.

Riverside 8-man football team is seeking
an opponent with a deaf 8-man football team.

Hope Riverside will find a game.

This leads to another matter – normally DeafDigest
Sports would start collecting football schedules
now for the following football season.

DeafDigest Sports editor has decided to wait until
the spring months to start collecting these schedules.

There have been cases of some deaf schools winding up their
schedules as early as January or February – only to decide
later on to cancel their football seasons. This is the
reason for the wait until spring time.

If you, however, have completed your schedule now, you
can send these to DeafDigest Sports editor today.

Thank you.

Gallaudet’s Ben Sealts claims his fifth NEAC Men’s Swimmer
of the Week honor this season

LATHAM, N.Y. – The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) announced its
conference student-athlete of the week awards for the week of Jan. 28 and
Gallaudet
University junior Ben Sealts  was selected as the NEAC Men’s Swimmer of the
Week for a fifth time this season.

Sealts won all three of his individual events he swam in last Saturday in
a 133-120 loss to SUNY Cobleskill. He collected three wins—200-yard
backstroke, 200-yard
butterfly and 200-yard IM—in a dual meet against the Fighting Tigers.
Sealts’ touched the wall in 2:05.89 to win the 200-yard IM by five
seconds. The junior’s win
in the 200-yard butterfly came by three seconds and the 200-yard back saw
Sealts win by a second.

Florida’s Mason Dixon Girls Basketball in South Carolina results

Florida vs Kentucky – 1/22/20
Final Score: 46-9

Even though we won the game 46 to 9, we weren’t playing at our best. We started
off sluggish in the 1st quarter, scoring only 6 points and allowing them score 3
points. Our girls were not 100% physically and mentally ready. We moved slowly
offensively and defensively. However, into the 2nd quarter, we started to pick
up the pace and played better. We were finally aggressive during the 2nd
quarter, scoring 20 points, while allowing only 3 extra points on their side.
During the second half, everyone were able to play, and they did an awesome job
on the defensive side. We also shined on the offensive side, constantly
attacking the basket. Finally, we took advantage of our cushy lead by slowing
down the game tempo to work on our passing, cutting, and rebounding. Our True
Freshman, Oceana Brown, led the team with 14 points and 4 steals. She also had 3
rebounds and 2 assists. Our junior, Lourdine Jordonne, rebounded 10 and scored 8
points with 1 assist. Way to go, Lady Dragons!

Stats:
Oceana Brown: 14 pts, 3 reb, 2 ast, 4 stl
Olivia Brown: 6 pts, 5 reb, 5 ast, 3 stl
Lourdine Jordonne: 8 pts, 10 reb, 1 ast, 1 stl

Florida vs Alabama – 1/23/20
Final Score: 50 – 14

We are mighty proud of our girls! Coming off from yesterday’s game, we
confidently controlled the game throughout on both offensive and defensive side.
We started with full-court presses and our usual hard nosed defense on Alabama,
which allowed us to easily net 19 points in the 1st quarter. On top of that, we
shut down their offensive end by allowing only 2 points. During the second
quarter, while continuing to maintain the momentum with our offense against ASD,
we scored an extra 10 points and only permitted them 2 extra points to the
board. During the second half, we decided to play everyone on the bench so they
could have ample playing time and work on their basketball skills. While doing
so, they weren’t careful offensively and defensively. Because of that we gained
only 6 points during the third quarter and allowed them 6 more. In the fourth
quarter, we made some necessary changes so we could finish strong. We finally
were better on our defense and offense, including transitions in the between. We
were able to add 15 more points to the board; and allowed only 4. to work on our
offense and transition from our defense. Hats off to a hard-working sixth woman
player, Taria Pellicer- Her stats for the night are as follows: 9 points, 8
steals, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, and 1 block.  Also outstanding tonight, a point
guard, Olivia Brown, shot for 13 points with 3 rebounds, 3 assists, and 5
steals. Our center, Lourdine Jordonne, while she was equally important in
securing the win tonight, was out after the first half because she was sick. In
the first half alone, she contributed with 9 points, 3 rebounds, 5 steals, and 2
assists. The rest of the scoring are almost spread evenly amongst Lady Dragons-
Oceana 7, Ja’Myra 4, Samantha 2, Shylah 2, Elsie 2, and Emma 2.

Stats:
Olivia Brown: 13 pts, 3 reb, 3 ast, 5 stl
Oceana Brown: 7 pts, 2 reb, 5 ast, 11 stl
Lourdine Jordonne: 9 pts, 3 reb, 2 ast, 5 stl
Ja’Myra Harris: 4 pts, 4 reb, 1 ast, 1 ast, 3 stl

Florida vs Mississippi – 1/23/20
Final Score: 30 – 50

Finally, the championship. And it wasn’t an easy game to watch. We were against
Mississippi School for the Deaf, and it was very physical from the start to the
end. After the first two games of the tournament, we were on fire. We were
ready, and we could see that inside the locker room before entering the floor.
With that fire as we began the first quarter, we quickly put 8 points on the
board. We were fierce and strong the first couple of minutes. We full court
pressed the bulldogs, but as soon as we approached the final minutes of the
first quarter, the momentum shifted to Mississippi. They were able to break
through our full court presses. We were 10 to 2 before they broke through. Our
players started to lose their focus and ended up misreading and cheating their
roles, which allowed them to catch up and tie with our 10 before the quarter
ended.  In the second quarter, our momentum was clearly gone. While we missed
many uncontested and easy layups and made many poor shot selections, the
bulldogs gained their lead on us. Our field goal percentage was quickly reduced
to 8% in the 2nd quarter! The bulldogs were able to make their cushion bigger
before ending the first half with 22 to our 13. In the third quarter, we
continued to deal with not just the hard battle against the bulldogs but with
ourselves trying to get better offensively and defensively. But we couldn’t
build momentum for our side- we ended up falling behind while the bulldogs
gained more to their lead. We ended the third quarter with 19 to their 32. MSD
continued with their lucky streak as we continued to make numerous mistakes
during the 4th quarter.  They gained extra 18 on us, while we only added 11
before ending the championship game with 30 to their 50. We really struggled not
offensively and defensively, and for some reason we could not correct ourselves.
After a numerous timeouts and a lengthy discussion in the locker room during the
half time, we could not get our minds straight. We missed so many easy layups
and close range shots. We were exhausted. We were not focused. We basically gave
the game away without much of a fight. We shot 15% field goal in the 4th
quarter. Instead of coming away from Mason Dixon with a championship trophy, we
got the second place.

Congratulations to FSDB boys for getting the second place, and to the
cheerleaders for winning the first place! Also, please congratulate to both
Brown sisters, Olivia and Oceana, for earning All Tournament Team Award and
Taria Pellicer for winning the 3-point contest. Our next game is tomorrow at
Taylor Pierson.

Hello Dragon Fans.  Sorry for the delay.  It’s been a whirlwind the past few
weeks.  I’m delighted to share with you the results of our boys’ first ever
foray into the Nation’s premier Deaf High Schools Basketball tournament, so
aptly named the Clerc Classic.  This year it was hosted by the Indiana School
for the Deaf.

Not to brag, but we instantly became crowd favorites at the tournament due to
our style of play and hustle.  The gym was rocking during our games.  We were
seeded 6th coming into the tournament and finished in 5th place.  We played in
two overtime games.

Walter Douglas was selected on the all-tournament team.  Allen Rosales tied the

WILLIGAN – Our Eagles went to Riverside last weekend to play against 5
other deaf schools in the annual wrestling tournament.  On Friday, we knew
that we would not
win any duals (team) matches because we only had 8 of the 14 weight
classes.  However, many of them competed and won matches.  On Saturday,
they entered individual
matches and competed in their own weight classes.  Samuel Brown won  the
132 pound weight class Champion and George Quirie was 2nd in the weight
class of 152.
Congratulations to everyone!

DUAL SPORTS – Due to small numbers on the girls side, we made an
announcement to the Cheerleading and Girls Basketball teams that we are
allowing dual team sports
athletes for the remainder of the season to help the teams finish their
seasons.

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK –  Miguel Garcia Garcia, our junior wrestler
participated in his first tournament ever.  He picked up quickly and
contested in all of the
matches.  He has become an avid student in learning the finer technical
aspects of the sport and we are excited to see him carry on to this next
year!

ATC 55

Our varsity Roadrunners played a good game yesterday. We started the game strong
and ended the first half with a score of 14-24. We lost our momentum during the
3rd quarter and finally got back into the game during 4th quarter. Stacy Vargas
got injured during Monday’s game, so she was unable to play much. Our top
scorers include Martina Rodarte-Estrada with 7 points, Mya Malone with 6 points,
Victoria Baca with 6 points and Andrea Leyba with 3 points. We have another game
this upcoming Thursday. We look forward to have a full practice and a full team
recovery. Thanks for your ongoing support!

ATC 68

The Roadrunners improved to 9-4 on the season with an away victory over the ATC
Phoenixes.  The game was tight through but the boys kept their composure all
across the floor whenever ATC made their own runs. Senior post Luis Villalobos
was sensational with 34 points and 16 rebounds, despite being guarded by their
two best players most of the game. Sophomore point guard Bruce Brewer Jr. had 25
points, 10 assists and 7 rebounds. Freshman post Kieran Vollmar had 15 points
and 9 rebounds. Everyone got into the game was sophomore Jesus Rios put the game
out of reach with a game ending steal, was fouled on the ensuing layup and made
the clinching two free throws (the first two of the year for him). 8th grader
Adrien Ercolino also made two steals, 2 points and had a block.  The Roadrunners
next travel to Albuquerque to take on the state’s tenth ranked team in Class A
in Evangel Christian Academy.

quarter to put away Hamilton Bobcats 50-32.  Bree Goldstein had 20 points
and 9 rebounds,
followed by Jada Zarembka’s 10 and 9.  Gisella Visco led all rebounders
with 12, despite playing the point guard position for most of the game.

16-4, league 7-0.

boys:
Riverside Boys 48  Hamilton 45

Riverside boys played a sluggish start but regrouped and led by 10 at
halftime, 28-18.  Hamilton came out strong in the 3rd quarter and trimmed
our lead to only 4
points at end of 3rd quarter, 37-33.  Thanks to our stingy defense, we
were able to keep our lead in the 4th quarter.  Dylan Eveland, junior,
scored game-leading 22
points along with double-digit rebounds and Felix Gonzales, freshman point
guard, helped with 10 points and had a few timely steals throughout the

random deafsports talk

it was learned that at the Clerc boys’ basketball
tournament, Florida School for the Deaf and Blind
instantly became crowd favorites. Fans were rocking,
rooting on the Florida boys.

This is great and unusual. In past years DeafDigest
Sports editor, as a younger man, attended deaf basketball
tournaments and has witnessed fan hostilities!

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to a basketball
legend that departed us.

Dick Caswell, who had storied basketball careers at
Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf, Gallaudet and
District of Columbia Club for the Deaf, will never
be forgotten by DeafDigest Sports editor.

He was a whiz with these chest set shots during the
fifties and sixties while playing for his respective
clubs. He then became a long time high school/small
college basketball referee in the Washington, DC
area – often officiating big time high school
games.

Not only that, he moved up the basketball ranks
by becoming involved with the American Athletic
Association of the Deaf. He often described his
basketball chores as his “full time part-time job”
as he was already busy with his full time real job
on the Capitol Hill.

He has been inducted into the Gallaudet athletic
hall of fame.

Basketball legend Kobe Bryant lost his life in
a helicopter crash. The weather was so bad that
all other police helicopters were grounded.

In 1961, the Motor City Association of the
Deaf basketball team (from Detroit) was
enroute to a basketball game in Pittsburgh.
The team left in two passenger cars. The
weather was bad (heavy snowstorm). One car
arrived at the gym. The other car never made
it as all occupants were killed in a highway
crash. This was the worst tragedy in history
of Deaf Sports.

If weather is bad, stay home or proceed with
the travel?

This is the decision that sporting officials need to make.

DeafDigest Sports editor never forgot it. He was
attending classes at Gallaudet University and
word of the accident spread quickly across the
campus. It affected many people because of the
close-knit deaf community, everyone knowing
everyone.

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – The Gallaudet University men’s basketball team lost
74-60 here on the road Saturday to Penn College in a North Eastern
Athletic Conference
(NEAC) game.

Gallaudet (2-14, 2-5 NEAC) had an off-day shooting as the Bison only made
19 of 66 shots from the field (28.8 percent), the second-lowest percentage
this season. Penn College (5-11, 3-4 NEAC) held GU to only five 3-pointers out
of 30 attempts. The silver lining was Gallaudet’s free-throw percentage
(81.0) as it made 17 of 21 shots.

The Cincinnati Dragons Varsity Wheelchair Basketball Team finished in 4th
place out of 12 teams at the Big Peach Slam Jam in Atlanta this weekend.
This is one of the more prestigious regular season tournaments in
wheelchair basketball – 4 of the top 5 and 6 of the top 10 nationally
ranked teams were competing.  The Dragons (who entered the tournament
ranked #3 in the country) suffered losses to #1 Milwaukee, #2 Atlanta and
#5 Houston while defeating #9 ranked Charlotte 59-36.

Kerwin Haake, a deaf junior from Henry Clay HS in Lexington KY, was named to the
all-tournament 2nd team.  In the Dragons’ loss to #2 ranked Atlanta, the
Dragons trailed by 2 points with 5 seconds left.  Kerwin shot a long
3-pointer at the buzzer that went halfway down and bounced out – barely
missing what would have been a game-winning shot.  The Dragons will be
back in action on February 8-9 at the Midwest Conference Championships in
Chicago.

Q. A school, that does not update DeafDigest Sports
with their basketball scores, just won a deaf regional
basketball championship. Will DeafDigest Sports give
the school post-season honors because of the championship
win?

A. No!

It has happened many times in the past and the championship
school still gets no honors for that non-reporting reason.

Winton Woods, Ohio State standout golfer Kevin Hall to
compete at Torrey Pines

part of newspaper story

One of Cincinnati’s top golfers is trying to give his career a jumpstart
this weekend in a special way.

Cincinnati native Kevin Hall will be taking part in the APGA at the
Farmers Insurance Open this weekend at Torrey Pines as part of a diversity
initiative with the PGA Tour.

The APGA is the Advocates Pro Golf Association.

The AGPA Tour at the Farmers Insurance Open will be part of the annual PGA
TOUR stop at Torrey Pines Golf Course, January 23-26, in La Jolla, Ca. The
27-hole APGA Tour tournament will be contested on Torrey Pines North
Course during Saturday’s third round of the Farmers Insurance Open, played
simultaneously on the South Course.

Hall, 37, is deaf and African-American and trying to pave the way for
opportunities for both groups. That gives him extra determination on the
course.

The Ohio State graduate won the Big Ten Conference individual championship
in 2004 by 11 shots and turned pro the following year. He has played
several PGA Tour events and those of the main satellite tour, the Korn
Ferry Tour.

In recent years, he has been playing on the APGA and Korn Ferry tours. He
has three wins on the APGA Tour and had a full tour card on the Korn Ferry
tour in 2017, something he is trying to get back.

………………….

random deafsports talk

Cannot help but think about Kevin Hall’s pro golfing
struggles over the years, after winning the Big Ten
golf championship as a senior at Ohio State University.

Kevin Hall once competed at a major deaf golf tournament,
and won rather easily – in a walk, in a laughter, over these top deaf
golfers.

With the pros, it is a different story. Even at the lowest
pro golfing levels (equivalent to class A in baseball)
these pros are tough and competitive.

It is not just only Kevin Hall but other deaf golfing
pros – Korea’s Sun Lee and Deaflympics women’s golf
champion – Kayla Yost. They all face challenges and
struggles in all pro levels!

In a tight game at Larson Gym, The Roadrunners lost a close game that saw leads
change sides through. Monte Del Sol is a much taller and experienced 2AA team
and defeated us handedly in our season opener by 11 points. Tonight’s game
showed that the Roadrunners had the talent and mettle to compete with bigger
schools, However, mental mistakes down the stretch and missed free throws doomed
the Roadrunners. The team was led by Senior post Luis Villalobos’ 22 points and
13 rebounds. Sophomore point guard Bruce Brewer, Jr. was quiet tonight with 13
points, 8 assists and 4 steals. Freshman post Kieran Vollmar had 13 points and
10 rebounds. The 7-4. Roadrunners travel to Jemez Valley this Thursday in an

RISD Boys Basketball played their first back-to-back game of the year,
hosting San Miguel School. This would be a good test for our boys as San
Miguel is known for their speed and good ball movement. We struggled to
keep
up with them in the first half, finding ourselves in a 34-15 deficit. The
coaches continued their emphasis on making the right decisions and taking
better care of the ball. This is a season-long process as we strive to
become better and get ourselves ready for the ESDAA Div. 2 Boys Basketball
Tournament next month, so there were some bright spots in this game, as
San
Miguel won 56-31.

part of newspaper story

50 YEARS AGO (1970): Steve Blehm, formerly of Bismarck, broke his own
North Dakota School for the Deaf scoring record with a 52-point splurge
against the Devils Lake B-squad. Blehm’s burst led the Bulldogs, now 6-4
on the season, to an 80-74 victory.

note:

Blehm, who broke all these school, state and national scoring
records, played basketball at Gallaudet during the latter
part of the seventies. He was deadly with his shots, looking
for ways to keep himself open.

………………….

random deafsports talk

re the Steve Blehm story above, there was another high
scoring star that Gallaudet was blessed to have
during the high scoring era of the seventies –
Ernest Epps, who averaged 37.6 points per game as a
senior at Kentucky School for the Deaf. He reportedly
attracted notice from University of Maryland. He,
and Blehm played full careers at Gallaudet but only
played together one season (Epps was older than
Blehm).

CLERC CLASSIC – The Boys Basketball team had three nail biting games
against Florida, Maryland, and Texas and finished in 4th place.  They
ranged from being two
points away from playing in the Championship Game and also won in overtime
in the first round that could have sent us to the losing bracket.  Robert
Gregor was the
team’s all-tournament player.

The Girls Basketball team also contested in the first round against
Maryland who then went to the Championship Game, losing by six.  We then
had a down day against
Florida and then dominated against Wisconsin finishing in 7th Place.
Esther Biser was the team’s all-tournament player.

The Cheerleading Team supported all the teams and waited patiently all
weekend for their big stage.  On Saturday during the Competition, they had
a great dancing
performance and fared well in all categories.  We needed to do better in
our stunts and tumbling so we finished in 6th place.  We had two
all-tournaments in Shaelyn
Johnson and Landen Gonzales.

All of the teams recognized that they played very hard and should be proud
of themselves.  They all represented CSD very well and Indiana was great
hosts.  The
Seniors are looking forward to finishing strong in league and sectional
play.  The Coaches and the younger players are already talking about how
we want to improve
this offseason with camps and weightlifting.  We’re excited to be hosting
Clerc Classic next year!

WILLIGAN TOURNAMENT – The Wrestling team will be going to the Willigan

Our Roosters boys basketball team came back to our home court following MLK
Weekend to host American School for the Deaf’s JV Boys team.

ASD erupted to a huge 14-0 lead and a 19–1 lead as we struggled (mostly
mentally) to get over the first blow of the game from ASD. The second half was a
bit better as we were able to outscore ASD while utilizing our entire bench for
this game.

Our Lady Roosters basketball team played host to American School for the Deaf on
Senior Night, kicking off the game by honoring our very own Yasmin for all of
her contributions to the basketball program over the years.

Now that Yasmin had her moment in-the spotlight, it was right to focus on the
task at hand and that’s to continue to win basketball games. Our girls weren’t
quite there mentally as over five minutes elapsed before we were able to get our
first basket. We tried to cut into ASD’s lead and came within 7 points a number
of times, but just couldn’t put together long enough of a run to threaten take
the lead and momentum from ASD.

The Lady Bisons travelled to south to Arch Bishop Walsh in Olean

hit their shots and caused The Lady Bisons to turn the ball
over.  The Lady Bisons turned it around in the second half and
performed better but in the end it was not enough to catch
Walsh.  Kioney Alvira Jurado had 17 points. Laci Stoffer had 10
points.  Julia Bronneberg finished with 6 points.  Cami Cole had
5 points and Elise Watson had 2 points.

St. Mary’s is 4-4 overall and 1-2 in the IAC league.  Next game is

Girls Basketball
Our girls traveled up to Indianapolis for the 20th annual Clerc Classic
this past weekend with a goal of a third straight championship.  With a
22-2 record before the tournament started, our team looked to right the
ship after losing 2 tough games to start the new year.  The first round
game would pair us with Wisconsin, a last minute replacement to New York
School for the Deaf (Fanwood) who couldn’t bring their girls team.  We
were able to get over any jitters early and won 47-12.

Our next game would be against the host school, Indiana, which would lead
to some unique challenges.  The game started on Friday evening but had to
stop late in the first quarter due to the court becoming very slick and
not playable.  The ultimate decision came down to ensuring player safety –
the game would resume the following morning at 8:00a.  Indiana would go on
a nice run and had an 11-point lead early in the 4th quarter when a
time-out was called.  During the time out, each player was challenged to
dig deep and find their will to win.  And they responded beautifully.  Our
press became an enigma for the Indiana team, resulting in rushed shots and
turnovers – giving us a huge momentum shift.  The game ended in regulation
with a 32-32 tie.  In overtime, the girls continued to battle and their
resilience resulted in a 38-35 win.

The Saturday night championship game would be the 6th straight meeting
between Texas and Maryland.  Our girls were able to dominate in just about
every statistical category and dominated their way to a 36-21 victory.
This is the third straight championship for the Texas girls team after
three straight second place finishes.

All tournament team: Ashlene Etkie and Michaela Kelley
Tournament MVP: Kalena Bumbala

Kudos to the Indiana staff for putting this tournament together and doing
a wonderful job with the court after Friday night!

Boys Basketball
Entering the tournament, there was speculation that Texas Boys Basketball
lost several seniors from last year and that we would not be competitive
this year. Clerc Committee originally ranked our team as 5th seed but
moved us up to fourth, which did not make a huge difference. So, we felt
disrespected entering into Clerc Classic at Indianapolis, IN.

Facing Indiana in the first round, we lost to Indiana nine years in a row
since 2011. Jared Beckler, their star, kept Indiana in the game single
handedly as he made several long threes behind NBA three point line. We
changed how we wanted to defend him in the second half. Texas Boys
dominated in the second half and won 52-42.

Entering the semifinals, I knew facing a loaded MSSD team would be
difficult, but our boys were definitely up to the task. Unfortunately, we
couldn’t find our offense in the first half. Model jumped to a quick 10-0
lead. Our boys never gave up and kept on battling. We found ourselves
trailing by only two with 1 minute to go. Our comeback was too late and we
lost 36-29.

Historically, we never played well in the third place because we were
usually lacking in focus and energy. This did not happen against Fremont
as it was an ugly low scoring game, but our energy and focus were there
the whole 32 minutes. We took a quick 5-0 lead, and dominated Fremont
defensively. Fremont averaged 53 points per game, and their lowest points
this year was 39 points. Against us, Fremont scored only 21 points!

Joshua Saaty and Jack Scarboro were named to Clerc All-Tournament. Our
record currently stands at 16-6, and our next focus is to win our
district! We are in the second place, but we truly believe we can win our
district. It means we cannot lose one more game down the road.

The Willigan Wrestling Tournament is coming up
this weekend at Riverside.

Who is Willigan?

It is Marty Willigan, just easily the greatest
deaf wrestler ever. He wrestled at Hofstra University
(NCAA-I program) – and reached the NCAA-I championship
finals in his weight class, losing only to Dan Gable,
an immortal in the world of wrestling.

In a way a Deaf Immortal wrestler vs a Hearing Immortal
wrestler!

After his wrestling days, he made it career of coaching
Gallaudet wrestling. His proudest moment took place in the
late eighties when three of his wrestlers – Todd Silvestri,
Toselli Silvestri and Charles Hammack, became NCAA-III
All-Americans.

DeafDigest Sports editor bumps into Marty from time to
time at deaf social events, and almost always, the
conversation briefly focuses on wrestling!
