Florida boys’ basketball

Hello Dragon Fans.  It was not the return from break we envisioned from a
basketball perspective, but it was a good learning week for our team.  We
played the two teams that traditionally give us the hardest time on the
court, and we were not able to rise up to the challenge.  We are sitting
at
4-5 before our most important 2 week stretch of the season- The Clerc
Classic and Mason Dixon Tournament weekends.

FSDB vs Impact Christians – 1/8/20

Final Score: 49-25

We were pleased with our team’s performance last Wednesday. Impact
Christian was a game that we never had on our schedule before. They won
and lost to same teams we
played against in past years. Our defense was on the fire. We allowed only
5 points in first half. Our offense started slowly, but we started to came
out strong on
offense later in 1st quarter and 2nd quarter. At the half time, the score
was 26-5. In second half, we started to slow down and get our flow in
offense which helped
us score the ball in multiple different ways. Our bench players played
more, and they were doing their best to hold Impact Christian down. Lady
Dragons was led by
sophomore Olivia Brown who notched 14 points on along with 3 assists and 4
steals. Juniors Lourdine Jordonne scored a total of 14 points with 9
rebounds and 4
assists while Ja’Myra Harris was on the fire with 10 points, 4 rebounds, 4
assists and 1 assist. In those off the bench, Taria Pellicer, Shanna
Cooley, Elsie Essex,
and Shylah Thomas played hard and contributed to points, rebounds,
assists. Our next game will be against Riverside School for the Deaf at
Clerc Classic on
Thursday, January 16th.

V boys

Maxwell 82

NMSD 54

The Roadrunners lost to the states’ #4 ranked team by a respectable
margin. Our boys were still adjusting after a two week break, missing 22
layups and allowing
approximately 20 converted layups by the opposition. This game against
higher competition inspired the team by helping them realize how good they
can be and how
tough a matchup they are for opposing teams when they are on a roll.
Senior Luis Villalobos has 18 points and 6 rebounds. Sophomore Bruce
Brewer has 17 points, 7
assists and 6 steals despite being double-teamed most of the game.
Freshman post Kieran Vollmar has 11 points and 13 rebounds. The
Roadrunners 6-3 will play
To’Hajiilee next in an away contest.

Maxwell 51

NMSD 25

We played versus Maxwell last night. We lost with a final score of 25-51.
We ended the first quarter with a score of 6-10, but their defense and
strong
three-pointer put them in the lead. Our players worked hard throughout the
game. Our top scorers were Mya Malone with 11 points, Victoria Baca with
10 points, and
Sophia Martinez with 4 points. Stacy Vargas had 5 rebounds, Mya Malone had
10 rebounds. We are looking forward to clinic weekend, so we can work on
our skills and
regroup.

Jeff Float – USA Olympics gold medal swimmer

part of newspaper story

Arden Hills Athletic & Social Club has hired Olympic gold medal winning
swimmer Jeff Float as the new Head Otters Recreation Coach for its
swimming program. The Otters program is a summer league and fall rec
program that feeds the facility’s USA Swimming program Arden Hills
Swimming.

Float grew up training with the Arden Hills Swim Club. He began training
there at age 7 under coach Sherm Chavoor, who at the time was also
training Olympic gold medalists including Mark Spitz, Debbie Meyer, and
Mike Burton. He won an Olympic gold medal as part of the American 800 free
relay at the 1984 Olympic Games, where he was elected a team captain. He
also won a World Championship gold medal in the same relay in 1987 and won
an individual silver medal in the 400 free at the 1978 World
Championships.

Float was named the Deaf Olympian of the Century (he’s 90% deaf in one ear
and 65% deaf in the other ear), and was awarded a Congressional Gold
Medal.

note:
Float is deaf but is not part of Deaf Culture.

While he won a gold medal in Olympics swimming, it was not an
individual event but part of a relay team

He won seven gold medals in the 1977 Deaflympics. These
medals were stolen. The USA Deaflympics committee then
had seven gold medals re-made for him!

Will we see upsets at the upcoming Clerc basketball
tournament?

Hard to say. Some seedings are accurate; some may not
be accurate.

Just stay tuned.
