Fremont girls’ basketball

CSD Athletic Director, Warren Keller, had never seen a game like this. CSD
led Madison Park of Oakland 37-4 @ the half. 31 fouls were called in the
half (primarily against the visitor). Four of Madison Park’s players
fouled out by the end of the 3rd qtr. That is when the Madison Park coach waved
the white flag forfeiting the game as CSD led 46-7.

By half-time, Esther Biser had pulled down 9 boards, grabbed 9 steals,
gave out 3 assists & scored 10 of her 12 points. Also by half, Talia Boren
was 5-11 from the floor, had 7 rebounds & 3 steals. Boren scored a career
high 19 points in three qtr’s of play. CSD posted 22 steals & 33 rebounds
before the game was called.

CSD stands at 2-2 and is awaiting the winner of South Fork (4-4) and
Leadership. The quarter final tip off will be Friday @ 4:30.

The Kyte family is well represented on Team Canada for the 19th Winter
Deaflympics, which start Thursday and run for 10 days in Valtellina
Valchiavenna, Italy. Pembroke’s Sean and Thomas Kyte and Johnny Kyte of
Carp, who all played on Canada’s silver-medal winning team at the 2017
world deaf ice hockey championships, will wear the Canadian hockey jersey

Father Jim Kyte, who was deaf but functioned as a hearing person, played
in NHL in years 1983–1997. He played defense and did not score too many
goals but was the enforcer, only too ready to use his fists!

FSDB vs Beacon of Hope – 12/10/2019

Final Score: 66 to 15

Relishing in last night’s game against Eagle View, we felt good going into
today’s game against Beacon of Hope. Literally, at the very start of the game,
we went full throttle all the way to the half time, before easing on our
aggressiveness to work on our plays during the second half. Earlier we, the
coaches, asked the Lady Dragons if they wanted to go big, or go home. They
screamed GO BIG, and they sure showed it tonight! We went with Lady Dragons’
favorite defemse, and they executed their responsibilities perfectly because
they kept Beacon of Hope at 5 before half-time, before finishing for the night
with 66 to their 15! Offensive-wise, our lady dragons were unstoppable. They
worked hard together in a harmony to the point where they were able to read and
break through Beacon of Hope’s defense and find many easy and open shots. In
doing so, many of our lady dragons were able to score tonight! Olivia, with her
outstanding performance tonight, finished strong with 16 points, and her sister,
Oceana, greatly contributed to the scoreboard as well, with 15! Lourdine, a
center monster inside the paint, scored 14 more for FSDB! Other highlights of
the night: Shanna sunk a couple of layups for 6, Elise jumped for 7, Taria and
Shylah made a quick 4. We wanted to prepare our Lady Dragons for our upcoming
BIG game this Thursday against Oak Hall, so we decided to slow down during the
second half. We had our girls work on some plays in order to fine tune their
skills and abilities to run them. We can be ready for the next game, and for the
reason of the season!

Olivia Brown: 16 pts, 4 reb, 1 ast, 4 stl

BASKETBALL –

The Boys Basketball team is heavy with upperclassmen and looked really
good at their first two games.  They beat CSDR by 25 points at the Battle
of California and
will be hosting an athletic Stellar Prep tonight then play Leadership
Hayward on Thursday in the first round of CSD Classic.

The Girls Basketball team had a heartbreaking one-point loss at CSDR after
dominating College Prep but the team has really grinded it out last week
with only 8
players.  The team will carry their persistent attitude as we host a
difficult opponent in Head Royce tonight then Madison Park at the first
round of the CSD
Classic tomorrow.

The Junior Varsity Boys Basketball team is excited to join the Pittsburg
Frosh Tournament on Thursday through Saturday and be in the same bracket
with some of the
top programs in California in Bishop O’Dowd, Berkeley, Pittsburg, Saint
Mary, and Rodriguez.  Our team has a lot of young talent and potential and
this tournament
will carry us a long way.

WRESTLING –

With enough interests with our returning athletes, we have decided to
resume our Varsity Wrestling program with a condensed schedule that will
include the Willigan
Wrestling Tournament.  Sam Reynolds is our Head Coach and we will release
a schedule and roster at a later time.

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK –

LANDEN GONZALES – Our freshmen newcomer has been a quick learner and a big
boost to our team’s morale.  He is always full of energy, enthusiastic,
and helps pushes
his teammates’ skills even further while also challenging himself.  On top
of that, he brings a lot of respect for others every day.  Landen and
others helped bring
CSD a first place finish at the Battle of California’s competition,
Congratulations!

Bison scrap with Gwynedd Mercy in final game of semester

WASHINGTON – It was a scrappy non-conference men’s basketball game here
Monday night in the Field House between Gallaudet University and Gwynedd
Mercy University. The two teams battled for 40 minutes before the Griffins
escaped with a 90-76 victory.

Gallaudet (1-8) trailed by as much as 22 points in the first half to
Gwynedd Mercy (6-1) as the two teams went into halftime with the Griffins
up, 56-36.

The Bison came out on fire in the second half as the Bison made their
first four shots, which forced Gwynedd Mercy to call a timeout just over
two minutes in. As quickly as GU went on that 10-0 run to begin the half,
the Bison went cold from the field. GU missed its next 10 shots from the
field, in a four-minute span, as the Griffins led 63-48. Gwynedd Mercy
kept Gallaudet at an arm’s length away from the lead the rest of the way.
GU cut the double-digit lead to nine points, 85-76, on a 3-pointer made by
freshman Rory Lewis (Frederick, Md.) at the 2:46 mark but that was as
close as the Bison got. The Griffins made two more shots from the field to
finish with 90 points.

Sophomore guard Corey Smith (Miami, Fla.) scored 15 of his team-high 18
points in the first half while senior guard Noah Valencia (Riverside,
Calif.) and junior guard Preston Kelly (Fishers, Ind.) tallied 16 points
each. Kelly finished with a game-high eight assists while Valencia made
three steals. Senior center Steve Valencia-Biskupiak (Riverside, Calif.)
recorded nine points, eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and one
block. Lewis finished with nine second-half points

Final Score: 57 – 2

Our Lady Dragons cruised past Eagle’s View Academy. We had a 50-point lead
by halftime and rolled against the Warriors 50-7 at home. Our girls played
really hard.
Tonight, we started without our two starters, Olivia Brown and Keliah
Williams. However, Oceana started to shine as a point guard. She scored 30
amazing points with
11 steals and 3 assists. Lourdine finished her game with 8 points, 3
rebounds, 4 steals, and 1 assist. Before the game ended, Taria was able to
get control of ball,
and finished with 4 points, 3 rebounds, 4 assists, and 4 steals. Most
importantly, we had all our bench players to step up and do their part.
They had to work extra
hard and really get noticed. Shanna Cooley and Elsie Essex scored 4 points
each while Emma Hancock, Shylah Thomas and Samantha Suarez scored 2
points. Taylor
Burcham had two rebounds in second half. We are definitely proud that all
of our Lady Dragons played really hard, and did their part. We will play
at Beacon of Hope
tonight.

RISD Boys Basketball

Friday 12/6 — Our RISD boys basketball team kicked off our 2019-20 season
with a game against our rival American School for the Deaf at the New
England Schools for the Deaf annual Basketball Tip-Off Tournament (hosted
by Marie Philip School). We lost three starters and valuable contributors
from our team last year which is a good amount of turnover for a small
school. But that also means more opportunities for our younger players to
step up.

ASD jumped off to a strong start and never looked back as our young team
struggled to find their identity, had troubles taking care of the ball and
keeping up with ASD’s speed on both ends of the court. There were plenty
of learning moments for our team.

RISD – 8 4 – 12
ASD – 24 31 – 55

Jayden E. – 10 Points, 3 Rebounds
Daury A. – 2 Points, 5 Rebounds

Saturday 12/7 — Our team had learned from our first game and were ready
to close out our Tipoff Tournament with a strong performance as we played
against a familiar foe in Horace Mann School for the Deaf. Our boys jumped
out to an early lead before allowing Horace Mann to crawl back into the
game as they once held a 8-7 lead at one point. Our coaches instilled some
urgency in our boys and they responded very well with a 14-1 run to close
out the first half.

One Horace Mann player caught fire early on in the second half, but we
continued to focus on our game and execute our game plan, as our lead
eventually started to grow with each possession. We closed out the
tournament on a strong note with a 50-26 victory, topping 50 points
[something that we hadn’t yet to do last year]. An outstanding effort for
our Rooster boys’ basketball team, showing great improvements from Friday
to Saturday and we also won the Boys’ Team Sportsmanship Award for this
tournament.

RISD – 21 29 – 50
HMS – 9 17 – 26

Jayden E. – 22 Points, 14 Rebounds, 5 Steals
Daury A. – 14 Points
Jose S. – 13 Points, 3 Steals

RISD Boys Basketball Record: 1-1
Next Game: Wednesday, December 11 vs. Horace Mann School [5:00 P.M.]

RISD Girls Basketball

Friday 12/6 — Our RISD Girls opened our season at the New England Schools
for the Deaf annual Basketball Tip-Off Tournament, hosted by Marie Philip
School this past weekend. After a month’s worth of preparations, this
would be our first real test and our girls were looking forward to it
after a disappointing end to our season last year.

Our girls jumped off to a great start, taking control of the game with a
15-6 halftime lead. We maintained control in the second half, an important
point for our girls this year, and we were able to come out victorious
24-12, to clinch our first trip to the championship game in more than a
decade!

RISD – 15 9 – 24
ASD – 6 6 – 12

Yasmin S. – 16 Points, 8 Steals
Melissa E. – 4 Points, 9 Rebounds

Saturday 12/7 — Our RISD girls basketball team were ready to play for the
NESD Tipoff Basketball Championship with a chance to earn our first title
since 2005. It was quite a defensive battle from the beginning as baskets
were at a premium. Our girls were able to put together a good rally to
close out the first half, holding on to a precious 14-11 halftime lead.

The coaches emphasized focus and composure to our girls as they had a real
opportunity to make history as long as they kept doing exactly what they
had been doing. The second half was exactly the same — yet, another
defensive battle with every basket becoming more valuable. We held the
lead all the way until the closing minutes as MPS was able to inch closer
and closer after one of our valued starter fouled out and two other girls
had four fouls.

We had a chance to close out the game, but couldn’t convert on our free
throws and allowed MPS to win via a last-second offensive rebound off a
missed free throw and a layup. Quite a tough way for our girls to lose,
but we were proud of our girls and they certainly caught everybody’s
attention with how well they played today!

RISD – 14 17 – 31
MPS – 11 21 – 32

RISD Girls Basketball Record: 1-1
Next Game: Wednesday, December 11 vs. Horace Mann School [3:30 P.M.]

Varsity Boys Basketball –
FEAST invitational weekend:

TSD boys participated in FEAST invitational tournament over the weekend.
Coming in the tournament, we knew we were going to face a lot of good
teams with a thin roster as our three guards (two starters) are not
available due to injuries.

We played Feast Home School White Team in the first game. We trailed the
entire game but managed to tie the game and force overtime. We prevailed
in the end with a 39-36 victory.

In our second game, we handled Heritage Christian easily. They were 32-9
last year but lost 7 seniors from last year. We won 57-34.

We became even thinner on Saturday as we lost our captain Jack Scarboro to
an eye injury. We had to play without four players and we managed to
dominate in the semifinals over Central Austin Saints, 54-34.

In the championship game, we ran out of gas with a thin roster. We faced
a very good Feast Home School Red Team. Feast Home School Red Team won the
first three games by 148 points combined. We lost by 29 as the final score
was 62-32.

Russell Rohde and Robert Stewart were named to the All-Tournament team.

Our record stands at 5-1.

Varsity Girls Basketball

The Varsity girls basketball team headed down to San Antonio this past
weekend to participate in the FEAST Tournament. Our goal was to defend
our championship title from last year and to continue showing improvement
on both ends of the court. The first game on Friday afternoon was against
Abilene Hawks, which we won 51-36. The second game against the Central
Texas Saints was the second matchup in three weeks. It was a true test of
our will to win and we responded very well – winning a very physical game
by a score of 44-42.

Since we finished at the top of our pool, we had a first round bye in the
tournament bracket. The second round game put us against a team from
Australia! The South East Storm was in the middle of a three-week tour in
the US. They had a 6’3″ girl who gave us challenges but we eventually
pulled away for a 50-20 victory.

The championship game was a rematch of last year’s championship game with
the host team: FEAST Patriots. Our girls dominated with a strong
defensive performance and FEAST had no answer. The final score of the
championship game was 51-26. The coaches were pleased with the discipline
of our defense and the ability of the players to communicate with each
other on the court.

Up next, we have Brentwood Christian on Tuesday before hosting the Ranger
Classic featuring Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana schools for the deaf.

Record: 11-0

TSD Wrestling

TSD Rangers Wrestling went to the Rough Riders tournament at Roosevelt

and Shadow Tollison. Six boys nabbed the silver and they were, Billy Calk,

Stein. Hawkins Morgan is the only wrestler that took third. The wrestlers
exceeded to our expectations and we look forward to the rest of the
season!

from DeafDigest news – 10 years ago

Curling is a popular winter sport in Canada; it is slowly
catching on in the rest of the world.
Croatia is one of the competing teams at the European
Curling championships (hearing).
What is the big deal is that all of the participants on the
Croatian national curling team is deaf! The deaf team defeated
all hearing teams on Croatia for the rights to represent the
nation at the world championships!
It is the first time that an all-deaf team is representing
its own nation at a world championship athletic event!

Cazenovia College, 74-65, in the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC)

with 12 minutes left in regulation.

Senior guard Noah Valencia (Riverside, Calif.) made two free throws in the

remembering a land speed racer

from a posting

Looking back at Kitty O’Neil’s Record

It was on this day (Dec. 6) in 1976 that professional stuntwoman Kitty
O’Neil set a record for land speed by a female driver. It was in Oregon’s
Alvord Desert that Kitty hit 512 miles per hour.

Childhood diseases left her deaf.

She became a champion diver at a young age.

She set a record for the highest stunt fall by a woman (105 feet).  She
has held as many as 22-speed records on land and water.

A movie was made about her life in 1979 titled Silent Victory: The Kitty
O’Neil Story.  She died Nov. 2, 2018, from pneumonia at the age of 72.

note:
Did she know or use ASL?  No. It was her personal preference not
to use ASL.

She was part of 1965 USA Deaflympics team as a diver, but unfortunately
this event was cancelled due to lack of entrants. Needless to say
she was very upset about it.

random deafsports talk

Is it possible that some schools refuse to send their sports
scores to DeafDigest Sports (as well as with their local
newspapers) is because of FERPA regulations?

FERPA? It is spelled in full as:
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act

One past athletic director discussed with DeafDigest Sports
his fear of FERPA.

And only yesterday, a fan said he was not able to get full
basketball scores for DeafDigest Sports because of these
same FERPA reasons!

Is there a difference between Hearing FERPA and Deaf FERPA?

DeafDigest Sports thinks not!

Gallaudet women’s basketball

Passing of Ben Baylor, long-time employee and coach

WASHINGTON – Benjamin Baylor, a 37-year Gallaudet University employee,
passed away on November 28. Ben served the Gallaudet community in many
ways. He was a Technical Resource Specialist in the Department of Physical
Education and Recreation from April 1977 until January 2014. He also
served as an assistant coach for the women’s basketball team for 22 years,
when Kitty Baldridge was at the helm. This dynamic partnership provided
outstanding role models for the players, and resulted in four league
championships and the team’s magical 1998-1999 run to the NCAA Division
III Sweet 16.

Ben also assisted with the Children’s Instructional Summer Program that
operated at Gallaudet for over four decades, and provided technical
support for Gallaudet Dance Company performances on campus and abroad. He
mentored Gallaudet undergraduate students who worked with him under the
College Work-Study Program, as well as MSSD students. Ben also supported
many other students, providing guidance and compassion that he delivered
with a big heart and smile. Always willing to help anyone, Ben undertook
his work and his contributions with a “can do” attitude and nary a
complaint.

Benjamin Baylor was born March 24, 1953 in Washington D.C. to Gladys and
Frederick Baylor, both deceased. He attended Rutgers University.

Ben is survived by two children, Christie Baylor and Alderic Cooper; three
grandchildren, one great-grandchild, and three siblings, Lorraine Baylor,
Frederic Baylor Jr. and Derrick Baylor. Four siblings preceded Ben in
death: John Miner, Evelyn Scott, Joyce Baylor, and Alfreda Baylor.

Ben was honored with a moment of silence before the Gallaudet women’s
basketball game against Marymount University on December 4. The Department
of Physical Education and Recreation is planning to establish an award in
Ben’s honor; details will follow.

Funeral services will be held on Monday, December 9 at J.B. Jenkins
Funeral Home, 7474 Landover Road, Hyattsville, Maryland from 1:30 to 2:30
p.m., preceded by visitation from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Both the viewing and
funeral services will be interpreted.

Gallaudet University mourns Ben’s passing, and sends its condolences to
his family, friends, and colleagues. He will be greatly missed.

ran off 9 straight points before ATC got on the scoreboard. With a full
house, the young
Roadrunners were in complete control of the game from start to finish. The
tempo was such that the younger players got ample opportunities to expand
their game by
getting involved in drives, shot-making and making outstanding defensive
plays. The Roadrunners were led by the 6’2 Villalobos’ 20 points, 13
rebounds and 6 blocks,
with sophomore point guard Bruce Brewer, Jr chipping in 18 points, 8
rebounds and 7 assists. Kieran Vollmar has earned 10 points and 6
rebounds. 8th grader Adrien
Ercolino scored his first varsity points on a baseline jumper, and added a
3-pointer to finish with 7 points along with several strong defensive
stops. This was a
game that allowed our younger boys to step up, gain confidence and
experience. The Roadrunners (1-1) play Santa Fe Desert Academy at Larson
Gym next Wednesday
December 11th.

Record: 1-1

Our Roadrunners Girls’ Varsity Basketball team played Academy for

15-32. Our players
started the game with strong defense, but our offense could not keep up
with their shooting. We are still proud of our players, and we look
forward to regrouping
and getting ready for a big week next week and weekend. Some of our
statistics from last night include Mya Malone with 7 points and 19
rebounds. Martina

Ben Baylor, who passed away, is an extremely rare individual
in Gallaudet athletics.

He served as assistant women’s basketball coach for 22 years.

Almost all assistant coaches, in any sport, do not last that
long.

Ben joins the late John Perry as these extremely rare
coaches in Gallaudet athletics.

Gallaudet women’s basketball

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to Ben Baylor,
a past long time assistant women’s basketball coach.

He departed us.

He served head coach Kitty Baldridge for many years
with the women’s teams – and of course, the highlight
of his career was the season the women became the
NCAA-III Sweet Sixteen team. When not coaching basketball
he was the equipment manager with the Gallaudet physical
education department, and hence a well known figure in the
Field House.

kept them at 24

tonight. She scored 31 huge points for FSDB, giving ourselves a very
cushiony lead throughout
the entire game. Of course, her 31 points did not come without our team
effort. Our Lady Dragons contributed to the lead with many rebounds,
assists, and steals. We
also forced many turnovers on the Knights, which gave us a numerous
scoring opportunities. Naturally, we did have a share of errors on our
part, but we finished
strong tonight, ending the night with a 3-0 record! We are proud to say
that all of our Lady Dragons played tonight, and they were awesome! We
look forward to
playing our next home game next Monday against Eagle’s View Academy, and

The Roadrunners had their season opener against Monte Del Sol at the IAIA
gym in Santa Fe, coming up short in a tight game 56-43. The much taller
Dragons used their height advantage and deep roster to overcome the
determined Roadrunners, who were buoyed by sophomore point guard Bruce
Brewer Jr’s 20 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists and 6’2 senior post Luis
Villalobos’ 14 points and 11 rebounds. The Roadrunners played their
starters
the whole game, given the lack of depth (two players on the bench with
very
minimal playing experience) – starting one senior, one sophomore, two
freshmen (Kieran Vollmar and Jesus Rios) and an 8th grader (Adrien
Ercolino). Coming off two straight 20+ win campaigns, the Roadrunners look
poised to have another good year full of hustle, heart and hard work.

For former Husky all-state wide receiver and current Husker Todd Honas,

knocking him out of his football career, ending his playing days as he

random deafsports talk

Someone wanted to know who the deaf school was and
which athletic director was it and which sport was it
re yesterday’s random deafsports talk (below)

Sorry. DeafDigest Sports will not reveal any of
the above questions. Thanks for understanding

Yesterday:
Today DeafDigest Sports received an email from a disappointed
fall season coach whose best athlete was not honored nor was
the school mentioned on the list of schools with these won/lost
records.

The school’s new athletic director paid no attention to
these DeafDigest Sports daily news.

The retiring athletic director did explain these deaf sports
reporting procedures to the new athletic director. For some
reason the new athletic director did not understand.

As a result, the school’s best athlete is not being
recognized and the school’s team is not on the won/lost
list of schools in that sport.

This is sad.

Fremont sports

Four runners competed in the Northern Coast Section Championships during
the fall break and made CSD very proud.  They had a long season and we
applaud them for
their persistence from day one to end.

WINTER SPORTS BEGINS –

We had a scrimmage before the fall break and this week we will have our
first games tomorrow in the sports of JV Boys Basketball, Varsity Boys
Basketball, and
Varsity Girls Basketball.  On Saturday, we will go to Riverside for the
Battle of California!  Stay tuned to our updates on our Instagram and
Twitter pages
@CSDEAGLES

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK –

AMANDA VEGA – She has been our unsung hero in many different occasions.
In Cross Country alone, she has been a tireless worker for three years.
Each of those
years, she has consistently improved her times.  In addition to that, her
attitude and commitment has been exemplary!

Oklahoma Boys Basketball

Oklahoma – 52 Millcreek – 49

Record: 1-0

I’m so proud of my boys who did do well on our first game.  Also, we
finally defeated Millcreek which we did not beat them since 1990’s.  It
has been almost 30
years to break Millcreek’s winning streak.  We will play another game
tomorrow to play with Paoli in our first home game

part of newspaper story

Garrett currently plays for the Milwaukee School of Engineering Raiders
(NCHA, DIII)

Southern Professional Hockey League

Soccer coach proves deafness is no hindrance to career on touchline

part of newspaper story

London (AFP) – Ben Lampert is not a stereotypical soccerfootball coach.
Instead of yelling from the touchline, the deaf trainer issues his
instructions in sign language.

He is a coach with Brentford FC Community Sports Trust, a team in
England’s second-tier Championship (sort of baseball’s low class A
minor league team).

……………………………………

better late than never

USA men’s soccer team defeated Argentina 1-0
to win the Pam American championship. A
caveat – that tournament only involved five
nations. Participating nations were Argentina,
Mexico, Brazil and Chile.

USA deaf women’s volleyball team

won the gold medal at the 2019 Pan American Deaf
Volleyball Regional Qualification in Brazil. The
team did not lose a set during the tournament.
