After several delays, we finally were able to race at 4:40pm at the
Apalachee State Park.
The weather was perfect, the course was a bit wet from the weather earlier
in the morning. The course was full of challenging terrain and some steep
hills. Our
athletes pushed themselves and came in 10th place overall as a team! Our
very own Bobby Torres has qualified onto the Regional meet with his
individual time of
20:27.

St Mary’s volleyball

The Lady Bisons took on Gow for the first time ever yesterday afternoon.
After taking a few weeks off due to cancelations and postponements, our
ladies were eager
to get back out on the court. Unfortunately, due to the injury of two of
our starters, the Lady Bisons were starting with a new and younger lineup.
Unfortunately
they couldn’t seem to find their groove and fell in three straight sets.
Emilylynn Spillman led the team with 8 successful service points overall.
Zarielle Ormsby
really stepped up and took on a defensive leadership role, trying to cover
everywhere at once. The girls will try again in their last two attempts of
the season
next week Monday and Tuesday. Please wish them luck in their last week.

random deafsports thoughts

from a tweet:
William Hoy was the first of 7 deaf players who have
played major league baseball.

note:
seven? Really! Don’t know

the Dodgers had a pitcher – Ben Wade; word got around
that he had serious hearing loss, but to what degree –
profound or severe or moderate or mild?

He had a repuation in the club house as a loner,
rarely mingling with his teammates.

What became of him when he retired?  He became alongtime director of
scouting operations for the Los Angeles Dodgers during a period that saw
the team win four world championships.

Only deaf person to reach management levels in major league
baseball? Again, do not know!

………………………………..

Attention – all coaches and athletic directors

When a school reports its game score, the first
thing DeafDigest Sports editor looks for is
their current won-lost record.

If it is missing, the coach will be quickly reminded
by DeafDigest Sports editor. In 99 percent of such
cases, these late won-lost records are then given
to the editor.

In one case, one school has not (or would not)
report its updated won-lost record despite
sending in game results on a regular basis.

That coach has been repeatedly reminded but still no
won-lost record.

For that reason, DeafDigest Sports editor may
not print that school’s latest game resuls!

……………………………….

All-American honors

DeafDigest Sports has not yet invited schools to
nominate their athletes for All-American honors.

One school is an early bird with their nomination.

Yes, that nomination is being accepted.

Florida football

Season Record: 4-2

We visited rural Trenton to battle Riverside Christian Wranglers for the
First Coast Division championship.  It was not our night as we fell to the
hosts, 20-61.

After a sluggish start, we found ourselves in a 0-20 hole.  We came to
life in the middle of the 2nd quarter and positioned ourselves to be in a
one-possession game that never materialized.

Late in the 2nd quarter, we had just scored to make it 14-26.  We forced a
fumble, but the play was ruled dead by an “inadvertent whistle” and they
retained possession. A few plays later, they connected on a deep touchdown
pass to make it 14-34 at halftime.  Had that whistle not happened (our
fans who were on our side of the field swore that it came from the home
crowd in their stands and not a referee), we possibly could have made it
20-26 at halftime plus starting the 2nd half on offense.

Alas, it didn’t happen, and we could not regain the small momentum we had
going in the 2nd quarter, and the game got away from us in the final
quarter and half.

Offensively, as a whole, we did not have a pretty game.  We shot ourselves
in the foot numerous times with bobbled snaps and botched handoffs
befitting of 1st game of the year miscues.  We must clean that up.

Defensively, we had no answers to the stable of backs RC ran our way.
Their running backs ran real hard and we had difficulties getting them to
the ground.

Next comes the playoffs. We qualified for the Championship bracket (the
SSAC also has a Consolation bracket) as a 8 seed,  We are going to face #1
and undefeated Merritt Island Christian.  We met in the 2nd week of the
season, and we lost 24-60.  It will be an away game for us either on 10/28
or 10/29.  We are still finalizing the details of the game.  It will be
shared once we know it.

Texas cross country

Last week we completed week 10 of our training phase to prepare us for the
Faith Academy XC Championships meet in Marble Falls. Once again, our
athletes showed up and gave it their best shot with running season best
times with some all-time personal best times as well. The girl’s
championship race covered a distance of 2 miles while the boys
championship race was a 5k distance. Two of our female athletes (Patricia
Sucilla-Orozco & Kristen Medrano) decided to join the boys in running a 5k
distance in hopes of getting an official time they can post towards the
National Deaf Interscholastic Athletic Association rankings & since this
was their first 5k of the season it will count as a season best for that
distance.

Also running a season best for a 5k distance was Arturo Merchan, while
Hawkins Morgan, Gage Hopper, & Lorenzo Urrutia ran a personal all-time
best for that distance. Hawkins finished 12th place overall earning a
District XC medal and his new time now places him in the # 5 spot of the
TSD record book.

Our final challenge of the 2021 XC season will be on Monday November 1st
at the TAPPS XC State Championship meet located at Cottonwood Creek Golf
Course in Waco, TX.  As of now our boys will run their 5k event at 9:15 am
and our girls will run their 2-mile event at 10:20 am.

Dummy Hoy (William Hoy) – The First Deaf Major League Baseball Player

No, it is wrong.

The first deaf major league player was pitcher Ed Dundon. He wasn’t
a great pitcher and only lasted a couple of years in major league
baseball.

Everyone talks about Hoy; no one talks about Dundon or Dummy Taylor
or even Dick Sipek!

Rhode Island soccer

RISD Soccer
10/19

RISD originally had a home game but that was cancelled and we were able to
find a last minute opponent, Achievement First Iluminar, to play on the
road instead. Our
soccer team showed up prepared and ready to play and it showed in the
first half as we roared to a 4-0 halftime lead.

Our coaches shuffled players around and urged the team to work on the
little aspects of their game, such as ball control and passing around. We
were able to do that
through the second half, winning the game by the final score of 6-1.

RISD – 4  2 – 6
AFI –    0  1 – 1

Oscar C-S – 4 Goals (6 on the season)
Howard V. – 1 Goal (3 on the season)
Dimas C – 1 Goal (9 on the season)

RISD Soccer Record: 4-2

10/22
RISD traveled to American School for the Deaf to play against Rochester
School for the Deaf in place of the cancelled ESDAA Soccer Tournament. Our
team was
motivated and hungry to end the season on a strong note, especially
against Rochester School for the Deaf who’s had our numbers the last few
years (pre-COVID).

Our team jumped out to a quick lead on a goal by our lone senior, Jayden
E. Rochester would tighten up on defense and we had several missed
opportunities, including
a penalty kick. But in the last 10 minutes of the half, we were able to
wear down their defense and quickly capitalized to build a 4-0 halftime
lead.

The coaches urged the team to maintain their tempo and intensity while
continuing to work on their ball control and passing–  and the Roosters
did just that,
slowly adding to their lead through the second half en route to a 8-0
victory.

RISD – 4  4  – 8
RSD –  0  0  – 0

Jayden E. – 4 Goals (7 on the season)
Dimas C – 3 Goals, 2 Assists (12 on the season)
Howard V. – 1 Goal  (4 on the season)

RISD Soccer Final Record: 5-2

This wraps up arguably the best soccer season / team that Rhode Island has
seen in a long time. We would like to thank both RSD and ASD for making
this weekend
happen and giving our students, namely our seniors, a nice closure to
their HS soccer career.

Top five women’s basketball players to grace the LBSU court

Long Beach State University

5. Kirsten Cummings, No. 55

Kirsten Cummings was the first deaf player to be a first-team
All-American.

Cummings played the power forward and center positions for LBSU from 1982
to 1985, where she helped lead LBSU to three straight Elite Eight
appearances in the NCAA Tournament.

Cummings still ranks highly in many statistical categories at CSULB.

She is fifth in total points for her career with 1,740 scored. Her 15.4
scoring average is ranked sixth all-time at LBSU and ranks fifth field
goals (725).

Cummings’ defense was just as impressive, collecting 1,064 total rebounds,
the second most in LBSU women’s basketball history. Her rim presence ranks
sixth all-time with 145 career blocks.

She was inducted into the LBSU Hall of Fame in 1990.

note:
she had a long career in pro women’s basketball, both overseas and in USA

story did not mention her height, but she is 6’3

St Mary’s soccer

The Bisons wrapped up their regular season for soccer last night with a
convincing victory over Amherst Christian 6-0.  The scoring was well
distributed amongst all
3 of our offensive strikers including Ethan Antone, Brady Bartell, and
Farhad Ghorbani.  Our defensive was also up to the task by limiting our
opponents to only 8
shots on goal.    This victory catapults us into the NFCAA playoffs next
week Tuesday against the undefeated #1 seed Chesterton Academy.  Please
continue to support
our team and wish them good luck moving forward.  A special congrats  goes
out to Ethan Antone and Francis(Frank) Nguyen who played in their final
home game of
their high school soccer careers.  We will miss you both.  Bisons Forever!

Overall Record: 5-6

ESDAA Record: 1-0

NFCAA Record: 4-6

Individual Stats:

Ethan Antone- 2 goals(15th & 16th of the season)

Brady Bartell- 3 goals(8th, 9th, 10th of the season)

Farhad Ghorbani- 1 goal(13th of the aseason)

Last week off from games gave the Bisons the opportunity to heal nagging
injuries and it gave the coaches a chance to review, reinforce, and fix
some issues. That
said, today we entered the final week of our regular season against the
Falk school. The first half of the match was very competitive with both
teams putting
pressure on and scoring 2 goals per side. Our goals in the 1st half came
from Ethan Antone & Brady Bartell.  After some small changes and better
communication
amongst the players on the field, we were able to explode for 4 more goals
and limit our opponent to just 1 extra point. Our 2nd string was able to
get some
valuable playing time and experience as well. The final score was 6-2.
Please wish our boys congrats on the victory. Our next game is at SMSD on
Thursday against
Amherst Christian. Please come and support your Bisons.
Thanks,

Overall Record: 4-5

announcement on Deaf All-American and Team of the Year honors

Deaf All-American honors and Team of the Year honors
will resume; there were no such honors last year because
of Covid-19 shutting down many deaf school athletic
programs.

Just a warning, though – schools that do not submit
their scores to DeafDigest Sports on a regular basis
will not be invited to turn in their nominations.

Rhode Island soccer

Our Roosters soccer team traveled to Central Falls, RI to play a game
against a new opponent on the schedule, The Learning Community. Learning
Community came firing
right off the opening kick and was able to quickly send 2 balls through
our defensive line and the goaltender within the first five minutes of the
game.

Our Roosters woke up and started to play with a lot more physicality,
focus, and urgency and it would end up being an evenly matched battle.
Learning Community
would add one more goal on a controversial penalty inside the box within
minutes before halftime and we missed out on an easy goal shortly
afterwards.

The coaches urged the team to forget the first half and focus on improving
their communication and win the second half. Both teams would trade a goal
throughout the
second half, and we were able to pick up a few more shots to no avail —
the game ended 4-1 in favor of Learning Community.

RISD – 0 1 – 1
TLC – 3 1 – 4

Dimas C. – 1 Goal (8 on the Season)
Anderson G – 4 Saves

St Mary’s volleyball

Yesterday the Lady Bisons took on New Life Christian for the first time
this season. The girls were unsure of how this team would compare to those
they had faced
already this year and were in for a quick surprise from the other team.
New Life’s fast paced game play was hard for our girls to compete with,
and with two missing
starters and a lack of communication, the Bisons just couldn’t seem to
hold it together. Julia Bronneberg lead our team with 10 made serves and
Kioney Alvira-Jurado
really was the glue that held the team together with her assists and all
around court coverage. Elliana Sanders had her first in game kill and
Emilylynn Spillman
had her first ace of the season. Our game next week Tuesday has been
canceled, so wish the girls luck as they go back on the road Thursday to
take on CAWNY.

random deafsports thoughts

Is cross country a great sport?

Three deaf runners won their own state championships in the past.

One deaf person told DeafDigest Sports editor that he wanted
to run cross country, but peer pressure from his friends forced
him to play football, a sport he hated.

One deaf person said he preferred cross country, not track for the reason
he was able to enjoy the outdoors – trees, hills, lakes, nature, etc.

What about DeafDigest Sports editor? He loves all sports!

FSDB vs Tocoi Creek HS

Last night our six seniors had their Senior Night. Our teammates, FSDB
brothers/ sisters, families, staff, fans, and community celebrated and
honored our seniors’
commitment, successes, and contribution to our Volleyball program. We had
our last regular game.

Girls, Parents, Families, Administrators, Teachers, Staff, Fans, and
Community, thank you for contributing to our program. Thank you for your
support, dedication,
and spirit! Lastly, thank you for making this season a success!

In all three sets, the Lady Dragons tried to stay in the close game with
the Toros. The Lady Dragons trailed most of the games, but they never gave
up. They
continued to show a positive attitude and spirit. What hurt us the most
was our serves. Every game, we usually make ten to fifteen aces. Last
night we had only six
aces. Also, we made 11 service errors. That tortured us. Throughout the
season, we struggled with our serve receive, but we showed more
improvement last night. It
was not enough for us to win. We had 49 errors, while Toros had 39 errors.
If we had only 39 errors or less, we would win the game for sure! We
almost “had” it.

Our five seniors contributed seven kills, seven assists, three aces, and
twenty-one digs together. Our seniors usually add 8.4 aces, 7.6 kills, 5.1
assists, and 15
digs every game. We will miss having them on the court next year.

Lady Dragons (leaders) — Kills (18): Oceana 10, Olivia 5, Dainty 1, Debrow

St Mary’s volleyball

The Lady Bisons took on the Rochester Wildcats for the second time this
season away in Rochester. The Bisons away game winning streak was finally
put to an end in a
hard fought match. After five days of not touching a volleyball the Lady
Bisons really struggled to shake off the dust falling quickly in a 4-25
first set. After
regrouping and a few “knocks to the head” the girls seemed to remember
that they do know how to play volleyball and were determined to show it.
After zeroing in on
a few weak spots in the Rochester defense Kioney Alvira-Jurado and Julia
Bronneberg were able to rack up an impressive 7 serving aces each. All the
girls had at
least one hit during the game with Emilylynn Spillman earning her first in
game spike of her career.

The girls show great effort and control as they tried to struggle to
catchup to the Wildcats, but after two more long sets they fell to
Rochester again. Please
think about coming to watch our girls take on New Life Christian tomorrow
at 4pm as they attempt to put another notch in their win column.

Deaf All-American honors and Team of the Year honors
will resume; there were no such honors last year because
of Covid-19 shutting down many deaf school athletic
programs.

Just a warning, though – schools that do not submit
their scores to DeafDigest Sports on a regular basis
will not be invited to turn in their nominations.

Does not matter if DeafDigest editor picks up such
scores from non-responding schools via newspaper
stories and tweets these schools still will not be invited.
Picking up scores via maxpreps still does not count as
responding schools.

Indiana basketball

the state has a new rule, effective with this season –
the 35-point mercy rule for basketball.

Good idea? Very certainly so in basketball, especially
if it is used in deaf vs deaf games.

But there is a drawback – deaf tournament teams travel
from long distances and may not like it when they spend
a lot of money on travel costs only to have the game
ended early.

A football coach at a deaf school explained to DeafDigest

players do not like it when they travel long distances
only to have the football games ended prematurely.

are 6-0 and  currently #6 in the country NCAA Division II.  Shaq’ke is now
the starting defensive tackle. He recently recorded a few tackles and a sack.
He was recently selected MVP of the week last week.

On his team’s roster, he is listed as red shirt sophomore.

He is big, 6’1 and 314 lbs

note:
he played 8-man football at Arkansas School for the Deaf.
Few years back, the school cancelled its season; in
order to continue playing football, he joined the team
at a nearby high school.

a newspaper headline

Russian figure skater Diana Davis, performing in ice dancing
with Gleb Smolkin, spoke about hearing problems.

She spoke about her deafness, but has refused to wear
a hearing aid, saying she does not need it in everyday
life.

hardball baseball

from a tweet

Very surprised to know that Japan thinks it is dangerous for
Deaf people to play hardball baseball!!

Hope one day that will change in Japan and for the Deaf people.

note:
this is true, only that Japan deaf never bothered to explain
this to the USA national deaf baseball team (no longer in
existence) that only hardball baseball is played in Japan.

The USA team traveled to Japan about 40 years ago to play
games against deaf Japanese teams. The Americans, surprised
about the hardball, lost the first game.

Getting used to the hardball, the Americans routed
Japan for the rest of the series.

Both hardball and regulation baseball are both “dangerous”
to play for these unskilled players. No real advantage to
either types of baseball.

random deafsports thoughts

Speaking of above (Division III Women’s Volleyball Committee)
legendary Gallaudet wrestling coach Thompson Clayton wrote a
book on different holds in wrestling.

Speaking of that book, DeafDigest Sports editor still has
the book. He bought the book at an used book store, of all
the places, in Cooperstown, NY, the home of the Baseball
Hall of Fame!

Wrestling was a major Gallaudet sport. Not anymore as Gallaudet
dropped it due to low participation and low interest.

Sigh!

Gallaudet football

Strong second half keeps Gallaudet on the winning path
https://www.gallaudetathletics.com/sports/fball/2021-22/releases/recap_keystone

Gallaudet 34
Keystone  14

Gallaudet 4-0 (2-0 conference)

Keystone continues winless, but keep in mind they are a first year team
and these first year teams normally struggle in their first season of play.

Next week up is at SUNY-Maritime. They are leaving EFCF, switching to another
conference next season. They were a strong team past few seasons, but not
that so strong this season. This game promises to be a pitched battle,
no matter what.

Outstanding defensive back/kicker Jack Gray did not play; was watching
the game in his street clothes. It is hoped he will return next week
and be ready to play.

Newcomer linebacker Jacob Hartman, who played NCAA-II ball before
transferring to Gallaudet, has continued as a beast on defense.

Most important thing about the win is that Gallaudet will not have
a losing season.

Gallaudet was 2-6 in 2019; did not play in 2020 because of Covid-19.

Florida football

Season Record: 4-1

We bussed over to Talladega, AL to resume our rivalry with Alabama School
for the Deaf.  After a shaky start, we managed to emerge with a W, 54-26.

Playing Deaf opponents are always a ‘circle the calendar’ type of event.
Probably more so this year as it was our first such opponent in 2 seasons.

Alabama received the opening kickoff and managed to march down the field
for a touchdown and conversion to take a quick 8-0 lead.  On our opening
possession, we methodically moved down the field but couldn’t finish the
deed as a pass was intercepted in the endzone.

Due to both teams’ ball control offense, we only had one possession in the
1st quarter.  Alabama’s second possession resulted in a punt.  Then, in
the 2nd quarter the Dragons came alive and reeled off 38 points in an
onslaught of touchdowns and conversions.  Alabama managed to come up with
a safety for their only other 1st half points.  At halftime we enjoyed a
38-10 lead.

In the second half, we played our youngsters and the game ended on my
favorite play, the victory kneel down.

The defense was the star of the game.  After giving up the opening drive
touchdown, we clamped down and forced 6 turnovers.

Our next game has been cancelled.  However, there is a chance we may find
an opponent.  If we find one, it will be a HOME game on 10/14 at 7pm.  If
not, our next game will be 10/21 at Riverside Christian (Trenton, FL) 7pm.
If Riverside wins their next game, this game will be the showdown to
determine the division champs and seeding for the Conference Playoffs.

deaf coach of high school teams

part of newspaper story

Lauren Gaudette, who is deaf, is the head coach
of the Windham HS (New Hampshire) JV and freshman
football teams, as well as serving as assistant
coach with the varsity.

When football season ends she coaches the boys’
JV basketball team and also the track team
in the throwing events.

She even coached one varsity game as the head
coach when the head coach couldn’t make it
because of a family event. She lost that varsity
game 26-7.

It is believed she is the first female in state
history to coach a football varsity game (that
26-7 defeat).

Does she study the film of past football games?
Yes, all the time!

Below are our short recaps of last three games our Varsity played.

Lady Dragons bounce back and win 3 games after a four-game losing streak.

10/7/21: FSDB vs Duval Charter at JJVA

There was a heated game between the Lady Dragons and Panthers. Last week,
the Panthers scraped us in three sets. This time our girls fought back and
earned the win
after playing five sets. We made numerous errors, but we never gave up. We
outsmarted them by hitting, passing, and dinking to the open spots. Our
junior setter
Paisley led in aces, assists, and digs. She had eyes for every point when
she was playing on the court. Our junior middle blocker Oceana Brown was
on the fire! She
had 15 kills, but she had 44 attack attempts. She wanted to attack the
Panthers!

Lady Dragons (leaders) — Kills (20): Oceana 15, Debrow 4, Olivia 3, Crook
2, Dainty 2, Williams 2, Bonanno-White 1, Hancock 1; Assists (19): Crook
6, Olivia 4,
Hancock 3, Essex 2, Debrow 2, Oceana 1, Williams 1; Aces (18): Crook 10,

Bonanno-White 9, Dainty

10/6/21: FSDB at River City Science Academy

Our Lady Dragons halted the Rockets to blast us off again! Our girls
defended and defeated River City Science Academy in all three sets. Girls
came together as a
whole team. They played sharply on passing, setting, hitting and serving.

Box Score:

FSDB: 25, 25, 25

RCSA: 8, 19, 23

Hancock 1; Blocks (3): Debrow 2, Olivia 1

Record 7-7

10/5/21: FSDB vs Impact Christian

After a bad and long week with four games losses, our Lady Dragons
rebounded against Impact Christian. However, our girls did not execute
every set as the coach
expected. Lady Dragons played a little sloppy. For example, we saved the
ball with one arm or fist. Also, we did not play as a whole team.

Box Score:

FSDB: 25, 25, 25

10/4
Away Game at Friends Academy has been cancelled due to inclement
weather/poor field conditions.

10/5

Our Rooster Soccer Team played host to Blackstone Valley Prep who has been
formidable opponents over the past several years. It was a tightly
contested game between
two evenly matched teams — we scored first, only to give up the lead to
two straight goals from BVP who capitalized on missed clearing kicks by
our defensive
front. We were able to knot the game up at 2 apiece a few minutes before
halftime.

We came out firing in the second half, winning the ball often and
maintaining pressure on BVP’s half of the field — which correlated to two
goals, the first coming
on a penalty kick. BVP was undeterred though – as they would eventually
shift the ball and the pressure over onto our half of the field for the
last 15 minutes. A
handball resulted in a free kick, which BVP capitalized on… our
defensive unit refused to cave in and we were able to hold off a flurry of
shots from BVP to
escape with a hard-fought 4-3 victory.

BVP – 2 1 – 3
RISD – 2 2 – 4

Jayden E. – 3 Goals (3 Goals on the season)

The three National Anti-Doping Organizations (NADOs) and two International
Federations (IFs) in question are:

Deaf International Basketball Federation (DIBF);
Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) National Anti-Doping

St Mary’s soccer

The Bisons slump continued last night after a 2-0 loss to Christian Academy
of Western New York. Our defense and goalie Michael Norris continued its
strong play in
an effort to keep the match close while the offense was still looking for
it’s mojo. Unfortunately, despite a few golden opportunities to score, our
team couldn’t
get a goal. The team continued to show a great deal of effort until the
final whistle blew and the coaches were proud of how the team handled
themselves throughout
the course of the match. The team has entered the back half of the regular
season and travel to Central Baptist on Wednesday. We will continue to
work hard in order
to get back on the scoreboard. Thank you for your support.

Overall Record: 3-4
ESDAA Record: 1-0
NFCAA Record: 2-5

Individual Stats:
Michael Norris: 10 saves

Despite a valiant effort and a lot of heart, the Bisons struggles to get
back into the win column continued tonight with a 2-1 loss to Central
Baptist. Brady Bartell’s determination from the mid field earned him and
our
team a 1-0 lead that we were able to carry into halftime. However, our
advantage would not last and our opponent was able to take advantage of a
defensive breakdown to knot the score 1-1. Although our offense had double
digits in shots against Central Baptist we were unable to punch another
goal
in for the rest of the game. With the game still tied 1-1, our opponent
was
awarded a penalty shot with 5 minutes remaining in the contest. Our keeper
was unable to come up with the save and despite our teams hard work, they
were unable to recover. With no games next week, our coaches and our
players
will take the opportunity to regroup and prepare for a final push to the
playoffs with only 2 games left in our regular season.

Overall Record: 3-5
ESDAA Record: 1-0
NFCAA Record: 2-6

Individual Stats:
Brady Bartell- 1 goal(5th of the season)
Michael Norris- 8 saves

Texas cross country

The TSD Rangers wrapped up week 7 of the Cross Country season by competing
at the Brentwood Christian School Invitational. Our varsity girls team
competed in a competitive 2 mile race that included several local schools
as well as schools from the Houston area. Patricia Sucilla-Orozco &
Jessica Fontana improved their 2 mile race time by running a season best
while Kristen Medrano fell short of reaching a new season best & Erin
Collins was unable to compete. Our varsity boys team competed in a
competitive 5k race that was compiled with schools from the Austin area.
Arturo Merchan, Hawkins Morgan & Gage Hooper improved their 5k race times
by running their season best times for a 5k while Lorenzo Urrutia was DQ

random deafsports thoughts

attitude of many hearing people

a tweet said:
at my college when I laughed that we had a deaf national soccer
team. Their deaf goalie got mad; this issue was quickly handled

another soccer tweet asked:
Someone with a serious face, asking me if deaf people can understand soccer

that person does not realize that soccer is a big sport among
schools for the deaf basically on the east coast
