college, deaf athlete, field hockey

Madison Ensley

senior

Wilkes College (NCAA-III, Pennsylvania)

started 15 of her team’s 19 games

her stats is practically non-existent for an important
reason; she is a defender, her job is to protect her
goalie from shots going in!

elite deaf athlete, hockey

Brent Walters was a Jr A goalie with the Valley Wildcats team
in the Maritime Junior A Hockey League

While in Canada, Junior A Hockey is akin to NCAA-I in USA, this
league is not considered elite among these Junior A leagues in
Canada. He played 10 games with this Junior A team and was
demoted to Junior B (akin to NCAA-II). He is not considred a
NHL prospect, yet it is rare for deaf Canadians to play
Junior B (or even Junior A).

random deafsports talk

more and more newspapers, especially these small town newspapers,
use paywalls to try to force readers to pay for the news they
read. It forces DeafDigest Sports editor to resort to tricks
to bypass these paywalls. In the long run, it hurts deaf sports
news, not just in USA but in nations such as India and Australia!

Even more and more USA Today local afflilated newspapers use
these paywalls.

Some tricks work, some don’t work at all! This means missed
deaf sports news for you all.
