St Mary’s sports

After careful consideration, SMSD has decided to limit athletic play and
travel to local schools and teams.  We will not be hosting any games or
events with teams
or schools from outside of the WNY area.  There will be no out of state
travel occurring until the COVID pandemic becomes manageable and safe
level for all .  Our
school will continue to prioritize safety as we move forward.  It’s in the
best interest of the student athletes and academics that we adhere to this
This was not an easy decision for our school but what we feel is the
correct decision given the information have currently.

We will not be hosting the Girls DII Basketball Tournament in February or
attending any ESDAA tournaments this year.

random deafsports thoughts

what is the difference between two rival national deaf basketball
organizations – USA Deaf Basketball, Inc. and National Deaf Basketball

Same thing – what is the difference between NCAA-I and NIT
national basketball tournaments?

Fans root for their favorite teams regardless of which tournament
they play in!
