Gallaudet’s Eric Gregory officially makes 2019 NCAA Division III
outdoor track and field championship field

INDIANAPOLIS – The NCAA Division III Men’s and Women’s Track and Field
Committee announced today the participants in the 2019 NCAA Division III
Men’s and Women’s Outdoor Track and Field Championships.

For each men’s individual event contested, including the decathlon, the
top 20 declared student-athletes were accepted into the competition.  For
each women’s individual event contested, including the heptathlon, the top
22 declared student-athletes were accepted into the competition.  For each
relay event contested, the top 16 declared relay teams, one per
institution, were accepted into the competition.

Gallaudet University freshman sprinter Eric Gregory (Metairie, La.) made
the cut in the 200-meter dash as he had the 14th fastest time out of the
Top 20 in the event. Gregory posted a time of 21.39 seconds back on April
20 at the Gallaudet University Invitational. Gregory’s time was a personal
record and a new school record.

Jordan Leverette from Baldwin Wallace University has the top time of 20.89
seconds in the 200-meter dash.

Gregory becomes Gallaudet’s first NCAA championship qualifier since 2013
when Darius Flowers finished seventh in the triple jump and 13th in the
long jump. Flowers was a two-time All-American in the triple jump and
nearly earned a third when he placed ninth in 2012 after he placed sixth
in 2011.

Gregory is the first NCAA championship qualifier under Gallaudet coach
Byron Moore since he took the head coach reigns in 2014-15.

The championships will be held May 23-25 at the SPIRE Institute in Geneva,
Ohio, and hosted by University of Mount Union. The 200-meter dash
preliminaries will be held on Thursday, May 23, at 5 p.m.

random deafsports thoughts

a deaf sports fan passed away recently. His son played basketball
at Gallaudet some years back.

Before we had videos of Gallaudet sports, how did that deaf sports
fan keep up with his son’s games at Gallaudet since he did not
live in the Washington, DC area?

He had someone send play by play texts of each Gallaudet game!

We’ve gone a long way since then, thanks to technology.

elite deaf athlete, baseball

part of newspaper story

Quebec Capitales fielder Tyson Gillies puts in the work to overcome
hearing loss

Gillies, one of a number of new names on the Quebec Capitales roster this
season, is legally deaf.

“That was the way for me to kind of make scouts and colleges overlook my
disability, and not think too much about it and say, ‘Hey, that’s Tyson,
the legally deaf baseball player,’ not, ‘Hey there’s Tyson — he is working
hard again today.'”

The 30-year-old Vancouver native wears hearing aids. He says playing
baseball with his condition wasn’t always easy, but he makes up for it on
the field by making sure he is prepared, knowing who’s on base and what he
has to do with the ball if it’s hit to him.

He was drafted by the Seattle Mariners in the 25th round of the 2006 Major
League Baseball draft, and since then he has played for more than 20 teams
in the minor leagues and independent ball. He has also played for the
Canadian national team.

Though it’s his first season in Quebec City, it’s not his first time
playing there — two years ago, Gillies played against the Capitales there
when he was with the Ottawa Champions.

note:
The Québec Capitales are a professional baseball team based in Quebec
City, Quebec, Canada. The Capitales are a member of the Canadian-American
Association of Professional Baseball, which is not affiliated with Major
League Baseball.

Gillies was once or twice during his career so close to making it in the
majors but was never called up.

a Dummy Hoy tale we didn’t know about

part of web posting

Cincinnati Reds

Reds Manager: Hank O’Day

This Reds manager, like the one he replaced, pitched in the 19th century.
He first made his name in the baseball world in the 1880’s in Washington,
forty years after the Washington Monument was built and twenty four years
before the Lincoln Memorial. His catcher was a 25-year-old named Connie
Mack and, in outfield, a young deaf mute named Luther Hoy patrolled center
field.

It’s not documented, but one must suppose that O’Day and Hoy had a rapport
as O’Day’s parents were both hearing impaired.

the posting is very long

Lady Bisons track & field results 5/16/19

The Lady Bisons hosted the Hawks from Cardinal O’Hara yesterday afternoon.
The Hawks have a history of having a strong track program and the girls
team that they
brought yesterday was no exception.  Cardinal O’Hara was not only able to
double up their girls in every event, but they were all very talented
athletes.
Meanwhile, our Lady Bisons unfortunately didn’t have what it took to
match-up against the Hawks.  We ended losing by the score of 77-13.
Despite the loss, we did
have one major positive come out of the meet.  Congratulations to Kioney
Alvira-Juardo for breaking the girls SMSD record in triple jump that was
previously held by
Sharon DiTondo (31’9 ½”) from 1989.  Kioney  set the record with a jump of
32’2”.  Our last meet is next week Tuesday at home against the Pioneers
from the Park
School.  Please come and support your Lady Bisons for the final time this
school year.

Gallaudet’s Hannah Neild selected to Google Cloud Academic All-District
Softball First Team

WASHINGTON  – The 2019 Google Cloud Academic All-District® Softball Teams,
selected by CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors of America), were
released and Gallaudet University sophomore Hannah Neild (Litchfield,
N.H.) was named to the District 2 first team for Division III. Neild will
now be added to the national ballot for the chance to earn Academic
All-America honors, which will be announced on Tuesday, June 4.

Neild becomes the first Google Cloud Academic All-District® softball team
honoree to represent Gallaudet.

Neild was selected to the 2019 North Eastern Athletic
Conference (NEAC) softball all-conference second team last week.

This is not Neild’s first appearance on a Google Cloud All-District® Team.
In fact, Neild was selected in February to the women’s basketball
All-District First Team. In March, she was named Google Cloud Academic
All-America® Team Member of the Year for Division III women’s basketball
after being selected to the Google Cloud Academic All-America® First Team.

note:

it is the same Hannah Neild, one of Gallaudet’s outstanding
soccer players (fall) and basketball (winter).

She attended Merrimack College (NCAA-II) but not “allowed”
to play soccer and softball, just basketball only. That was
before she transferred to Gallaudet.

At Gallaudet, she was free to play any sports she wanted to so!

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University athletics department launched its
first online fundraising campaign to benefit Bison student-athletes. The

“This campaign is founded to support our athletics programs at Gallaudet
University. The money raised will enable our student-athletes and their
teams to have their best season yet,” said Gallaudet Athletic Director
Victor Mansure. “Every dollar raised makes a real difference. Anyone can
give to the campaign!”

Gallaudet has partnered with MobileCause, who helps non-profits attract
more donors and inspire giving with its fundraising and donor engagement
software and digital marketing services. MobileCause is trusted by
thousands of non-profit organizations.

“Securing a broad base of support from our community demonstrates our
value and brings more awareness to Gallaudet Athletics,” added Mansure.

random deafsports thoughts

times have changed in deaf schools football

DeafDigest Sports editor has been trying to collect
schedules of all deaf school football teams.

He just wants to post deaf vs deaf football games,
but with 9 schools at this point, it is not possible.

He had email discussions with some schools. Responses were:

— some schools were waiting for their principals to OK
the schedules (classroom schedules and travel budgets)

— some schools were waiting for state approval of these
schedules

— some schools would need to wait until late summer to
find out if they have enough boys to field a team this
coming fall

— and so on

frustrating? Yes, very much so!

Is DeafDigest Sports editor being patient?

Yes.

Always frustrating when there are “leading”
stories about outstanding deaf athletes in
newspapers. Click on it and there is a warning
about an infected web site. Or a newspaper
that requires payment first before reading
the story. Or the story taken down by the
newspaper. And so on.

As a result, we have lost out on these
interesting deaf sports stories!

Lady Bisons Track & Field ESDAA tournament results 5/10/19-5/11/19

The Lady Bisons travelled to Rhode Island School for the Deaf (RISD) this
weekend to compete in the 42nd annual ESDAA track & field tournament. Our
ladies matched
up against 10 other schools made up of both division 1 and 2.  After 2
days of competition, our team represented our school well by finishing 2nd
amongst “small”
schools (division 2) and 4th overall.  We had 9 personal records, 1 gold
medal, 2 silver medals, 1 bronze medal,  rookies who gained invaluable
experience running
on a 400 meter track for the first time, and some wonderful team bonding
and support for each other throughout the entire weekend.   It was a
complete success for
the Lady Bisons. The coaching staff is excited to see that we are a young
team with no graduates this year and that our future is looking bright!
Please wish all
of our athletes congratulations on a job well done.  That said, our season
isn’t finished!  We will look to build on our achievements this week
Wednesday when we
host Cardinal O’Hara on the Lou Panella track at 4pm.  Come out and
support your Lady Bisons.

Deaf Pontypool boy racer podiums in Super One National Kart Championships

AN 11-YEAR-OLD racer has celebrated becoming the first profoundly deaf
racer to podium in a prestigious UK Karting championship.

Caleb McDuff, from Pontypool, finished third on the first day of racing at
the picturesque Rowrah circuit in Cumbria in the Super One National Kart
Championships, before following that up with a second place the second
day.

The speedster suffered from chronic ear infections aged two, leaving him
profoundly deaf – meaning he is unable to hear most sounds.

“The more experienced drivers were very fast and tough. If I made a
mistake, they would push me wide meaning I would spin a lot.

The Super One National Kart Championships, is regarded as the premier
karting championship in the UK, producing many famous drivers including
current F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton, who drove for the same Zipkart
Team in his karting days that Caleb drives for now.

note:

A future Formula One racing champion? Hope so!

………………………………………….

cricket sign language

part of newspaper story

When playing at international level, deaf cricket rules dictate that the
players are not permitted to wear hearing aids.

“When I bat, the batsman at the non-striking side will look at me and look
at the ball, too. I will call him to come or hold my hand up showing a
stop sign. Cricket has its own sign language on and off the field,” he
explains.

Howley explains how conventional sign language has unexpected advantages
on the cricket field. “Like when you swing the ball when you bowl,” he
says, “I will always stand with my back towards the batsman and do a
sign.”

………………………………………….

random deaf sports

Do read the above cricket story.

Not in USA but in many nations overseas, cricket is a wildly
popular sport.

There is no USA national deaf cricket team that plays in
deaf World Cricket championships. But because of many
deaf immigrants, who knows, there could be a deaf
cricket team here in USA some day?

Never say never.

Does DeafDigest Sports editor understand cricket rules?
Not really, but he tries to learn but watching it on
TV can be quite confusing.

Lady Bisons Track & Field results 5/9/19

Good Afternoon,

Yesterday afternoon the Lady Bisons competed against the Falcons from the
Stanley G. Falk school.  The emphasis of this competition was for our
girls to  prepare
for the annual ESDAA tournament that we are attending this weekend in
Rhode Island.  We used this meet to make last minute adjustments and to
make sure that all of
the girls were clear as to what events they would be participating in.
The Lady Bisons were focused and showed great effort.  We recorded 5
personal records (PR’s)
and the overall win against Falk.  Please wish our team good luck this
weekend.  We will update you with results on Monday.

EVANSVILLE HIRES NITRO’S STU WILSON AS NEW HEAD COACH

Evansville Hires Nitro’s Stu Wilson as New Head Coach
The University of Evansville has named Stu Wilson as the
program’s new head coach.

While Wilson’s most current job was on the club scene, he has plenty of
NCAA experience as well. He was the head coach of the men’s and women’s
teams at Georgia Tech from 2005 through 2009 and was also an assistant
there from 2002 through 2005. He also coached at Clemson in 2011 and 2012,
after which time the program was cut.

“I want to thank President Christopher M. Pietruszkiewicz and Director of
Athletics Mark Spencer for giving me the opportunity to be the University
of Evansville Head Men’s and Women’s Swimming and Diving Coach,” Wilson
said.  “I am excited about the future of the program.”

note:
he was a member of the USA men’s swimming team at two Deaflympics
during the eighties. He does not use ASL and functions as a
hearing person.

random deafsports thoughts

Jaden Barr reminds DeafDigest Sports of another deaf
quarterback – Cary Perkins, Emory & Henry, NCAA-III,
Virginia.

Cary was a wide receiver. He was inserted as an
emergency quarterback in his senior season (1992)
when the starter broke his leg and lost for season.

All Cary did was to steer his team to wins and led his
team to the NCAA-III playoffs.

DeafDigest Sports editor, very interested in him,
wrote a letter to Emory & Henry sports information
director, asking for more information. He never responded,
just totally ignoring DeafDigest Sports editor!

Very angry, DeafDigest Sports editor then wrote a
letter to the president of Emory & Henry College,
explaining that the college sports information
director would not respond.

Just almost suddenly the sports information director
sent DeafDigest editor a thick Fedex package containing
pictures, stats and all the information.

Cary is in the Emory & Henry hall of fame.

Former All-America Wildcats swimmer taking over at Salpointe

Salpointe Catholic athletic director Phil Gruensfelder made an exceptional
hire last week when he appointed Arizona’s 12-time All-America swimmer
Marcus Titus to be the girls swimming coach at Salpointe. Titus, 32, is deaf.

He is a teacher at the Arizona State Schools for the Deaf and the Blind,
which is also where he attended elementary school before enrolling at Flowing
Wells High School.

Titus was a big part of Arizona’s 2008 NCAA championship team, and reached
the finals of the 100 breast stroke at the USA Olympic Trials in 2008 and 2012.

deaf long distance runners’ hall of fame

DeafDigest Sports editor is part of the hall of fame
class in a ceremony that took place at Texas School
for the Deaf.

Over the years he occassionaly wrote about deaf long distance
runners – and until about 10 years ago he staged annual National
Deaf Schools Mythical Track and Field championships.

He stopped covering track because there was no point in duplicating
USA Deaf Track & Field’s coverage of Deaf Schools track and field
activities.

And besides the annual Berg/Seeger championships has rendered
moot the annual National Deaf Schools Mythical Track and Field
championships, that was started by Art Kruger and continued
by DeafDigest Sports editor.

Over the years, DeafDigest Sports editor remembers two
things – that Brenda Bessner (Washington School for the Deaf)
was the national hearing high school #1 javelin thrower
among high school girls.

Second thing was that a girl from a deaf school ran for
a hearby high school track team instead of running for
her own deaf school. The coaches were not too happy
about it!

from a newspaper story

Six Lakeside athletes sign scholarships

part of newspaper story

Jason Waters and Zachary Wade signed football scholarships to Gallaudet
University in Washington, D.C. Gallaudet is a university in which all
services accommodate deaf and hard-of-hearing students.

“This late in the ballgame they had some other options, but this was the
best for them,” Lakeside football coach Steve Hibbitts said. “It will work
out great because they have assistance set up there. They have all kinds of
athletics and they take care of those guys. So, I couldn’t think of a
better situation for them.”

Gallaudet saw success as recently as 2013, making it to the Division III
Tournament. The Bison were 3-5 last season.

Signings for players like Waters and Wade can open many doors for younger
students with disabilities. Hibbitts credits Gallaudet for making it
happen.

note:
Football scholarships? No, no way! NCAA does not allow NCAA-III progams
to offer athletic scholarships, but at least these two young men
are having opportunities to play college football.

random deafsports thoughts

years ago there were two great deaf swimmers – Jeff Float
who won a gold at the 1984 hearing Olympics and
Reed Gershwind who won many golds at Deaflympics. They
swam in one meet but not against each other; just swam
in theor own events.

Two great deaf swimmers in recent years – Marcus Titus
(see above story) and Matt Klotz. Too bad they never
swam against each other; Titus is older than Klotz.

Competitors brace for cold tournament

When the state’s small school divisions — Classes 1A, 2A and 3A — convene
Friday at Albuquerque’s Great Friends of UNM Track Complex, they will be
greeted by a taste of early-spring weather with a hint of winter sprinkled
into it.

As athletes hit the long jump pit, the discus circle and the high jump
stand to open the state track and field meet at 8 a.m., they should be
ready to be hit with this: Temperatures in the mid-to-high 40s, winds
between 20 mph and 25 mph with potential gusts near 35 mph and rain —
thunderstorms are forecast for the afternoon.

Another multi-event athletes to watch will be New Mexico School for the
Deaf senior Deven Thompson, who will attempt to repeat as discus and shot
put champion. He will be a part of the first group to face off against the
weather.

random deafsports thoughts

Cannot help but remember Bill Gregory, who passed
away last year. A Canadian, he played sports
at Gallaudet during the late sixties/early
seventies. His Gallaudet athletic career was
interesting. He played three seasons of
football, a sport he didn’t like – was an
offensive tackle and then quarterback
and then fullback. He played four seasons of
baseball, a sport he never played before and
hit over .360 as a senior. His favorite sport
was hockey – was the top player on his team
with his wicked slap shots that often went in
for goals; played two seasons with Washington
Chiefs, a semi-pro hockey team.

He was big; 6’1 and 230 lbs. In these days
athletes of his size were considered giants!

He said that hockey (a club sport) was the
reason he came to Gallaudet!

we have outstanding deaf golfers in USA. Why not an

at Masters or US Open or PGA Open?

Kevin Hall vs Michael Mabashov? Why not?
