random deafsports thoughts

Oregon School for the Deaf is being featured in a
Nyle DiMarco/Troy Kotsur short film – focusing
on the school winning the state 1986 class B
track and field championship.

Among schools for the deaf, Oregon placed 7th
place in the national mythical deaf and track
championship in that same 1986 season.

Which is the higher honor, winning the deaf
mythica championship or defeating hearing
schools to win the state championship?
