DeafDigest Sports girls’ basketball top 10 rankings

note: DeafDigest Sports used to post on an annual
basis, these top 10 rankings in basketball, volleyball,
soccer and football, but stopped it in the early 2000.

It is being resumed.

1. Texas – no question about it, they were just overwhelming
2. Maryland – the best of all teams that is not Texas!
3. Riverside – impressed very well at Clerc
4. Model – gave opponents fits at Clerc
5. Florida – finished runner ups at Mason-Dixon
6. Western Pennsylvania – finished runnerups at ESDAA-I
7. Oklahoma – won Great Plains
8. New Mexico – runner ups to Oklahoma
9. Rochester – won ESDAA-II
10. Phoenix – runner ups in Western Schools

note:
Some better teams were not ranked. Why? These
schools stopped giving DeafDigest Sports their
scores! They stopped despite repeated warnings
and repeated requests.

Next up is boys’ top 10 team rankings. Season is
still continuing for few schools.

Gallaudet baseball

The Gallaudet University baseball team fell to Washington College

The Bison (2-6) fell behind quick as the visiting Shoremen (2-1) scored
eight runs in the first inning and later plated four runs in the third to
chase GU starting pitcher Elijah Watters (Victorville, Calif.).

Gallaudet got on the scoreboard in the bottom of the third. Sophomore
Mitchell Dolinar (Las Vegas, Nev.) tripled to left-center field and junior
Darren Drolsbaugh (Lansdale, Pa.) got on due to a hit by pitch. The Bison,
with runners at the corners, pulled off a double steal as Dolinar dashed
home to tally GU’s first run. Washington College starting pitcher Nick
Brauer walked the next two batters to load the bases and then hit senior
Austin Altman (Irvine, Calif.) to force home a run. After a pitching
change, the Shoremen got out of the jam and got the final two outs as the
Bison left the bases loaded.

GU loaded the bases, again, in the bottom of the fourth when sophomore
Josh Dugan (San Antonio, Texas) walked, Dolinar singled and Dolsbaugh
walked. That set the stage for senior Gilwon Seo (Hongseong, South Korea)
to single home two runs with a single through the right side of the
infield. Senior Winston Lane III (Brooklyn Center, Minn.) followed and
drew a walk to load the bases before Shoremen pitcher Jay Nesson struck
out the next two batters to end the threat.

Final score was 20-6

NCS CHAMPIONSHIP AND NORCAL –

Our Boys Basketball team didn’t play our best game and lost to Ferndale in
the NCS Championship game that we hosted on Saturday 60-42.  We still
would like to thank

Cheerleaders are fortunate to get to play in the CIF NorCal State Playoffs
as the number
7 seed and will go to #2 Ripon Christian on Wednesday.  Good luck!

Baseball hosts Ace Charter.  Tomorrow, Softball will go to Oakland

North Coast Section Championship

#4 Ferndale 60
#2 CSD 42

“Defense wins championships” our team chose the wrong game to not have our
defense show up. Ferndale went on a 12-0 run in the first quarter when it
was 6-5 to make
it 18-5 and never looked back at that point.

CSD should be proud of their turnaround in the past three seasons and
finished as far as we could.
2017-18 – 11-15
2018-19 – 12-15 (First season with Coach Weinstock, lost NCS First Round)
2019-20 – 24-6 (NCS Runner-up)

However our season is not finished as we have qualified for the CIF NorCal
State Playoffs for the second time in school history.

#7 seeded CSD will play at #2 seeded Ripon Christian who won their
Sacramento-Joaquin Section Championship on Wednesday March 4 at 7:00 pm.

Model boys’ basketball

the loss to KIPP-DC (next door campus) was probably unfair.

That school has over 1,200 students as opposed to MSSD’s
approximately 170 students. And they were playing on
MSSD’s level – not a level playing field.

New Mexico boys’ basketball

Our boys made it to State for basketball!  We will play vs Maxwell High
School on Saturday, March 7th at 5 pm for the 1st round of NMAA basketball
state
tournament:  Congratulations to the NMSD boys basketball team!

See below for coaches comments about last Friday’s district championship
game..

Jemez Valley 69

NMSD 52

The boys ended their season at 17-8 with a loss in the District
championship game at JV’s home court. The game was tight all the way until
the last four minutes of
the 4th quarter when the home court Warriors went on a quick run to pull
out the victory.

The short handed Roadrunners suited up 6 boys and the lack of depth hurt
against the deep Warriors, who suited up at least 8 seniors.

Freshman Kieran Vollmar has 18 points and 11 rebounds, with sophomore
Bruce Brewer having 17 points and 3 rebounds. Senior Luis Villalobos had
12 points and 13
rebounds.

Brewer and Villalobos were double teamed from the opening tipoff until the
buzzer. Team went 10-21 from the free throw line and the rims also weren’t
friendly to
us.

random DeafSports thoughts

Why is DeafDigest Sports so fast with its national honors?

DeafDigest does not want the announcements to be made in
the middle of track, baseball and softball seasons.
