a dedication

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to  Robert A.
Patzner. As a young man, he played basketball for
The Council Bluffs Club for the Deaf which won a national
deaf tournament championship in 1961.

Years later he owned several racehorses that raced at
local racing tracks. It was a hobby with him while
he held a full time job.

Gallaudet swimming honors

Sealts sweeps NEAC Men’s Swimmer and Rookie of the Year, Curran named
Coach of the Year

GANSEVOORT, N.Y. – The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) released
its 2018 All-Conference Swimming and Diving teams and Gallaudet University
earned 10 spots, which included three relay events. Five different Bison
men’s swimmers earned all-conference honors including 2017-18 Men’s
Swimming and Diving Swimmer of the Year, Rookie of the Year and Coach of
the Year.

A swimmer or diver needs to place first, second, or third in an event at
the NEAC Championships to earn all-conference status. The 2018 swimming
and diving championships were held Feb. 16-18 and were hosted by SUNY
Cobleskill. Gallaudet finished in third place with 379 points.

Freshman Benjamin Sealts (Ottawa, Ohio) became the first men’s swimmer in
NEAC history to earn NEAC Men’s Swimmer of the Year and NEAC Men’s Rookie
of the Year at the same championship. The feat was achieved one time on
the women’s side when Cedar Crest College’s Maggie Olock swept both awards
at the 2104 NEAC championships. Sealts won his three individual events he
was entered in and set NEAC and school records in the process. He was also
a member of Gallaudet’s first-place 400-yard medley relay team along with
the 200-yard medley relay (second place) and 400-yard freestyle (third
place).

This is the second straight year Gallaudet has swept the NEAC Men’s
Swimmer and Rookie of the Year. Sealts becomes the third Bison to earn
NEAC Men’s Swimmer of the Year as he joins fellow teammate Jonathan
Tikhonoff (Folsom, Calif.), last year’s winner, along with accomplished
Bison swimmer Brian Bennett, who won back-to-back honors in 2011, ’12.
GU’s Chris Martinez was last year’s NEAC Men’s Rookie of the Year, this is
the second time in program history the Bison have earned this award.

Sealts shares the 2018 NEAC Men’s Swimming Rookie of the Year with SUNY
Cobleskill’s Daniel Mullen.

This is Gallaudet head coach Larry Curran’s first NEAC Men’s Swimming &
Diving Coach of the Year award. He earned the 2013-14 NEAC Women’s
Swimming & Diving Coach of the Year award four years ago.

Tikhonoff had an impressive meet as the senior won three individual events
and set a NEAC and school record in the 200-yard butterfly. He also joined
Sealts and senior David Bruno (Patchogue, N.Y.) and junior Mackenzie
Shannon (Winnetka, ill.) on the three relay teams that earned
all-conference honors. Freshman Rett Jala (McAllen, Texas) earned
all-conference third team honors in the 100-yard backstroke.

women’s swimming honors

Five Bison earn All-NEAC women’s swimming honors

GANSEVOORT, N.Y. – The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) released
its 2018 All-Conference Swimming and Diving teams and Gallaudet University
grabbed six spots on three different teams. GU had five women’s swimmers
earn all-conference honors.

A swimmer or diver needs to place first, second, or third in an event at
the NEAC Championships to earn all-conference status. The 2018 swimming
and diving championships were held Feb. 16-18 and were hosted by SUNY
Cobleskill. Gallaudet finished in fourth place with 310 points.

Sophomore Julia Miller-Notestone (Medford, Ore.) made a splash in her
return at the conference championships where she won the 100-yard
backstroke, finished second in the 100-yard freestyle and was third in the
200-yard freestyle.

Miller-Notestone was also a member of three Bison relays that earned
All-NEAC third team honors. GU’s 200- and 400-yard medley relay teams
consisted of Miller-Notestone, junior Alisia Metante (Pleasanton, Calif.)
and sophomores Jackie Perkins (Hampton, Va.) and Jessica Monroe (Senoia,
Ga.). Gallaudet’s 800-yard freestyle relay team was made up by
Miller-Notestone, Metante, Monroe and junior Jana Kiefer (Leander, Texas).

Bison don’t get the right bounce in NEAC tournament quarterfinal at Wilson

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – An unlucky bounce ended the Gallaudet University men’s
basketball season here Tuesday night as the Bison’s bid for an upset in
the 2018 North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) tournament quarterfinal
game against Wilson College fell short, 75-73.

Gallaudet (9-17) came back from being down by 10 points to the Phoenix

Girls Track: Panther Invitational Recap

2/15

The Girls Track and Field team traveled to Ridgeview HS last week Thursday
to compete against 8 other schools in the Panther Invitational. It was the
first meet of the year. With just three practices under their belts, the
girls did not disappoint.

Oceana Brown and Zoe Wilson stole the show with their performances in the
100 meter sprint and 1600 meter run, respectively.

Oceana captured first place in the 100 meter sprint clocking in at 13.11
seconds. Not only she was the fastest in the field of 30, but also the
youngest. Oceana is already making a name for herself and is on track for
a bright future!

Zoe, a first-year member of the team and a multi-sport athlete, who is
completely blind, used a cane to run the mile in 7 minutes and 33 seconds.
This is nothing short of miraculous as she ran 3/4 of a lap without her
cane after dropping it near the
halfway point of the race. Poor track conditions played a factor but
luckily, the cane was returned to her by a spectator and she was able to
finish the race with flying colors. She may have placed 11th out of 17 but
she captured 1st place in the hearts
of the many athletes and fans who were cheering her on. Definitely a
goosebump moment and one I’ll never forget! Zoe is the epitome of Courage
and Never Quit!!

Assistant coach Von Bursdall and I liked what we saw from our speedsters
in the sprinting relay events as we placed 3rd and 5th in the 4x100m and
4x400m, respectively. With practice and hard work, and Olivia Brown back
in the mix, it will only get better
from here on out.

Rookies Pinen Deshi (100, 4×100, 4×400), Katrina Kalis (1600), Nikayla
Merced (400), and Samantha Suarez (Shot Put, Discus) had the opportunity
to get their feet wet. The sky’s the limit for these girls!

Click the links below for meet results.

Our next two meets are at home, and the dates and times are as follows:
March 5 and 8 @ 3pm. Come one, come all!

representative at the NCS this weekend as the number 5 seed.  Open the
attached brackets and lets rally up behind the teams for what should be
another exciting postseason run!

Athlete of the Week – JARON LEMASTER.  Our sophomore rising guard on the
JV Basketball team has willingly filled in for Varsity on a few occasions
this year.  When the team became shorthanded in the league playoffs, Jaron
not only stepped in to learn some new plays and fit in his role in but he
actually played the entire game last Saturday.  Congratulations!

Idaho girls’ basketball

part of newspaper story

a girls basketball team that won its first basketball game (and its
second) in a decade.

note:
way back in the late eighties, the basketball team only had five girls.
The 5th girl badly hurt her knee in the game just before the Holiday
Season. If she couldn’t play after the Holidays, the season would have
been cancelled. The injured girl came back with a brace on her knee,
and practically limped her way for the remainder of the season. The
team won several games, making the season a success. The team’s
best player eventually played at Gallaudet.

inducted into county hall of fame

Johnny Olinger, who quarterbacked the Virginia School for the
Deaf and Blind football team to an unbeaten 10-0-0 record
in the 1969 season, has been inducted into the Smyth County
Hall of Fame.

Art Kruger, the Deaf American magazine sports editor was
faced with a difficult choice – which team was better as
the Team of the Year, 10-0-0 Virginia or 9-0-0 Illinois
School for the Deaf. He simply chose both schools to share
the Team of the Year honor.

Both schools did not face each other that season. Illinois
did defeat Virginia 73-0 in that season, but it was
Virginia High School (hearing) and not Virginia School
for the Deaf and Blind!

………………………………………………..

USADB hall of fame inductee little-known facts

They are the newest inductees

Darnell Woods – never played basketball in high school;
was a football star; after the Gallaudet football season,
he walked on the basketball team and made a big impact

Ron Emerson – played one season of college basketball
at Prairie View A&M and was immediately a fan favorite
despite playing very little. When games were nearly over,
fans screamed and clamored for the coach to play Ron.
The coach wouldn’t, but the fans screamed louder,
forcing the coach to give up and play Ron. He assisted
with the Gallaudet basketball team one season

Hubert Anderson – pulled off a feat that is impossible
for today’s coaches to duplicate – coaching the
Gallaudet team and the Washington Diplomats deaf club
team at the same time. Needless to say, the Diplomats
was considered Gallaudet’s unofficial farm team!
As a Gallaudet prep, he averaged 29 points a game with the
prep basketball team.

Michael Stultz – it it was impossible to separate him
from David Hamilton; they played together for years;
it was Stultz that made Hamilton look great – and
also it was Hamilton that made Stultz look great.
On these fast breaks, it was always either Hamilton
with the ball and Stultz at the wings – or -
Stultz with the ball and Hamilton at the wings -
very interchangeable and it led to many uncontested
layups.

Road challenge for GU men’s basketball at Wilson in NEAC tournament
quarterfinal Tuesday night

Women’s Basketball Student-Athlete of the Week.

Neild  continued her consistent play by averaging 27.5 points and 6.5
rebounds in a 2-0 week for the Bison. In a 78-76 win at Wilson, Neild
netted 28 points with nine rebounds, two assists, three steals and three
blocks. She added 27 points, four rebounds, two steals and three blocks in
a 65-56 win against Penn St.-Abington to help the Bison secure the No. 2

NMSD -18
Walatowa – 50

Our final regular season game ended up in a disappointing loss with
Walatowa cruising to a win. Walatowa led at the half 30 – 9. We played
with much better defense in the second half limiting them to 20 points.
Sophomore Mya Malone led the team with 7 points, 5 rebounds, and 1 assist.
Sophomore Lindsay Hand came up with 6 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, 2
steals, and a block. Freshman Victoria Baca had 6 rebounds, 3 steals, 2

rebound and a point. Senior Antonia Martinez with her quick hands earned 5
steals, 2 points, and a rebound. Senior Sherrena Bob came up big on the
glass earning 9 rebounds. 8th grader Olivia Haley saw a lot of action on
the court and earned herself a rebound.

Record 5 – 15
Coaches Roderick and Katie

V Boys (2/16)
NMSD 59
Walatowa 58

What an incredible game! In the 4th quarter, with 5 seconds left, 
Walatowa made a free throw which took them up by one point.  Without any
time outs left, Bruce Brewer Jr dribbled down the court and passed the
ball to Jonathan Garcia who then decided to drive to the basket. Sure
enough, Walatowa fouled on Jonathan RIGHT before the buzzer to end the
game went off. Jonathan went to the free throw line and he looked so
confident. He made both free throws, both hitting nothing but net.  Our
boys ran to Jonathan and celebrated the fact that we broke the school
record with 19 wins!  Leo and I want to say hats off to our boys for
believing that the game is not over until the clock runs out.   Senior
Jonathan got 23 points and Junior Deven Thompson made 17 points.

See you this coming Saturday for the District Championship game, please
share this with other NMSD alumni, family, and friends!

Clarification regarding district title and district championship…  we
have the district title which means we have an automatic bid in the state
tournament because of our first place rank in District 1A standings.  We
do not have the District championship yet, but we are the number 1 seed 
for the district basketball playoffs, We will need to win the district
championship game to be considered district champions and bring the
DISTRICT CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHY home!  So please come this Saturday and cheer
our team on.

Next game:  District championship game, Saturday, February 24th @ NMSD @ 5
pm (see admission info below)
Overall record 19-4
District record 7-1

Gallaudet baseball

Bison sweep series with Valley Forge on Opening Day

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University baseball team flourished in its
season-opener with a doubleheader sweep of University of Valley Forge on a
cool and sun-filled Sunday afternoon at Hoy Field. Gallaudet (2-0) shut
out the Patriots (0-2) in the first game 6-0 and won 5-1 in the second
game in the non-conference twin bill to begin the 2018 season.

Game 1: Gallaudet 6, Valley Forge 0
Senior outfielder Kyle Gumm (Dallas, Texas) led the offense with a 2-for-3
performance at the plate as he drove in one run and scored three times.

Gallaudet received great production from the top of its order as the top
five batters recorded a RBI and combined for five of the team’s six hits.
GU scored first with two runs in the bottom of the first and added two
runs in the fifth and six innings to capture its first win of the season.

Freshman pitcher Ethan Denson (Huffman, Texas) picked up his first
collegiate win as he pitched four innings of shutout ball. Denson (1-0)
allowed two hits, walked two batters and struck out four in the win. A
trio of Bison pitchers came on in relief to closeout the game. Valley
Forge’s pitcher Shashwat Chitnis (0-1) allowed four runs on four hits,
walked three, and struck out two in over four innings of work.

Game 2: Gallaudet 5, Valley Forge 1
The Bison led 1-0 early in the second game and added more runs in the
fourth and fifth innings. Junior outfielder Yebi Areola (Nashville, Tenn.)
tripled to right field to score sophomore Winston Lane (Brooklyn Center,
Minn.) in the bottom of the fourth. On the next play, Areola scored thanks
to freshman Darren Drolsbaugh’s (Landsdale, Pa.) sacrifice bunt to the
pitcher.

Valley Forge got on the board in the fifth as Bryan Reyes hit a sacrifice
fly to center field to score Jonas Marte as the Patriots cut the Bison
lead to two, 3-1.

Gallaudet struck, again, in the bottom of the fifth with two additional
runs. Gumm, who led off the inning with a walk, stole a base and moved up
on a ground out before he scored on a wild pitch. Lane followed that up
with a double to right-center field to plate senior Justin Strong
(Charlotte, N.C.), who got on base after being hit by the pitch, to give
GU the four-run lead, 5-1.

Junior Cameron Upton (Vicksburg, Miss.) recorded his first win of the year
as he allowed one run on four hits and struck out two in five innings of
work. Valley Forge pitcher Bryce Wheary took the loss as he allowed four
runs on three hits, walked three, and struck out four in four innings.

note:
Gallaudet easily swept Valley Forge in a double header last season,
by run away scores. Valley Forge has gotten stronger this season
with many freshmen recruits.

conference championships

COBLESKILL, N.Y. – The Gallaudet University men’s swimming and diving
program cleaned up at the 2018 North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC)
championships hosted by SUNY Cobleskill as the Bison took every individual
award on Sunday night. GU finished third overall as Wells College snuck by
the Bison down the stretch to take second place away from the buff and
blue.

Freshman Benjamin Sealts (Ottawa, Ohio) was the star of the weekend as he
won four events (including one relay) and set three NEAC records en route
to be named the 2018 NEAC Men’s Swimmer of the Year and 2018 NEAC Men’s

of the Year, won the 200-yard butterfly with a NEAC record time of
2:06.79. Tikhonoff’s time erases Raymond Clark’s school record time of
2:09.83 set in 2005. The previous NEAC mark was 2:11.02 set by a Cazenovia
swimmer in 2013.

Gallaudet finished third in the 400-yard freestyle relay as Sealts and
Tikhonoff teamed up with junior Mackenzie Shannon (Winnetka, Ill.) and

St Mary’s boys basketball

The Bisons played The Marie Katzenbach School for the Deaf from New Jersey
this afternoon in the Division II ESDAA Championships.  It has been over
10 years since The Herd was in the championship game so the Bisons were
anxious and jittery to start.  The first 8 minutes were close and low
scoring for both teams.  The Bisons then  took off on a run and outscored
New Jersey 17-8 in the final 8 minutes of the first half(Rhode Island
state rules play halves and not quarters).  Nick Barrus and Kassim Kassim
created some key turnovers that led to points.  Isa Habeeb(10) and Dalton
Planty(11) combined for 21 rebounds and helped control the boards. Ryan
Brzezinski came in off the bench and provided a change in the game which
led to points for the Bisons.  New Jersey got into foul trouble to start
the second half and the Bisons continued their run and outscored New
Jersey 17-5 for 8 minutes of play. The Bisons went on to win and become
Division II Champions….43-27.

The Bisons also won the Team Free Throw Competition, Team 21 Competition
and the Team Half Court Layup Competition.

1st team All-Stars were Nick Barrus, Isa Habeeb and Christian Lawrence.

Tournament Most Valuable Player was Nick Barrus.

Our record is 11 wins and 3 losses.

NCAA-I pitcher with a hearing loss

Robby Medel shows confidence in expanding role

part of web posting

“Going into my first year here [Arizona], that summer my mom was
thinking I was always ignoring her and I was like ‘no I’m not ignoring
you,’” Medel said. “So I did some hearing tests … figur[ed] out
that I am hard of hearing and [that] it’s really bad.”

Medel eventually had to get hearing aids, but initially wasn’t a big
fan. During his first year as a Wildcat, Medel struggled while on the
mound and eventually realized that wearing the hearing aids would benefit
him.

note:
he is late-deafened; he is a senior, too

a dedication to a past deaf club basketball player

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to Joe
Jezerski that departed us.

As a young man he was an outstanding basketball player
for Pittsburgh-area teams during the late fifties
and early sixties.

The highlight of his career was his 21 points in the
1958 championship finals that helped his Beaver
Valley team defeat Washington, DC for the title.

He was a role model among his teammates, always
telling them to stop arguing with the referees
and to just play ball.

His son, Tim, was a former Gallaudet basketball
player.

Bison “Cruz” into NEAC tournament after regular-season finale victory on Senior Day

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University’s mens basketball triumphed over
Penn St.-Abington, 74-71, in a North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC)
game Saturday afternoon in the Field House on Padden Court in the Bison’s
regular-season finale on Senior Day.

The Bison (9-16, 8-8 NEAC) came out of the gates fast and led from
start-to-finish in the three-point win over the Nittany Lions (10-13, 8-8
NEAC) to improve its postseason seeding. Gallaudet led 36-29 at the half
and increased its lead to 10 points with 2:57 left in regulation. The
Nittany Lions made their move and cut the Gallaudet lead to one, 72-71,
after Kevin Raymond made a three-pointer with 53 seconds left on the
clock. Gallaudet used several timeouts to regroup and held on to win its
ninth game of the season.

Sophomore guard Noah Valencia (Riverside, Calif.) posted a game-high 27
points to go with seven rebounds and four assists. Senior forward Andy
Cruz (Bronx, N.Y.) secured a double-double with 21 points and 12 rebounds
to go with a game-high six assists and four blocks. Sophomore guard Trace
Martin (Shingle Springs, Calif.) was quick on his feet with game-high
three steals, 11 points and two assists. Junior center Jamal Garner
(Jacksonville, Ill.) scored the last points of the game, off a nice assist
from freshman Shawn Daniels (Lakeland, Fla.), to thwart a Lion last-second
comeback.

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University’s women’s basketball team won a
tight 65-56 game against Penn St.-Abington in a North Eastern Athletic
Conference (NEAC) game Saturday evening in the Field House on Padden Court
on Senior Day.

The Bison (12-13, 9-7 NEAC) and Nittany Lions (13-11, 8-8 NEAC) exchanged
the lead 13 times and saw eight ties during the game. Gallaudet trailed
41-37 entering the fourth quarter and didn’t regain the lead until the
2:33 mark when junior guard Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.) sank a
three-pointer off an assist from senior Lawjen Ashmore (Fairbanks,
Alaska). Shysh’s third three-pointer gave Gallaudet a 52-49 lead.

Penn St.-Abington began to foul to preserve time and force Gallaudet to
win it at the free throw line. Gallaudet made the most of its
opportunities, coupled with two technical fouls on the visitors, as the
Bison made 13 of 14 attempts (92.8 percent) to close out the game.

Junior guard/forward Hannah Neild (Litchfield, N.H.), one of the leading
scorers in NCAA Division III women’s basketball, scored a game-high 27
points and added four rebounds, three blocks and two steals. Senior
forward Kelsey Hudson (Blissfield, Mich.) grabbed the game-high 25
rebounds to go with six points and two steals. Freshman guard Emelia

Matthew Klotz swimming update

from a web posting

The 2018 SEC Swimming & Diving Championship will officially start on
Wednesday with the 200 medley and 800 free relay timed finals, in addition
to women’s 1-meter diving and men’s 3-meter diving. Meanwhile, time
trials have begun on Wednesday morning in College Station. A few
interesting results so far are summarized below:

LSU’s Matthew Klotz swam a 20.04 in the men’s 50 free. That’s his
lifetime best, and also a US Deaf Swimming American Record in the event.
The old official record is a 20.47 done by Marcus Titus in 2015, though
Klotz swam an un-ratified 20.21 at last year’s SEC Championship meet.

Martinez, who posted a time of 2:06.73 at last year’s conference
championships.

Senior Jonathan Tikhonoff (Folsom, Calif.), the reigning NEAC Men’s
Swimmer of the Year, won the 500-yard freestyle as he touched the wall in
5:14.37, over 13 seconds ahead of the second-place swimmer.

Gallaudet’s 400-yard medley relay team won the final event of the night
with a time of 4:22.63 as they crushed the field by over 37 seconds. The
Bison 200-yard freestyle relay team finished fourth with a time of
2:17.46.

GU women’s team in fourth place after Day 1 of NEAC swimming and diving
championships

Three-time defending champion Cazenovia College is in first place with 223
points followed by Cedar Crest College (124 points), Wells College (114),
Gallaudet (95) and SUNY Cobleskill (36).

Junior Alisia Metante (Pleasanton, Calif.) and sophomore Jackie Perkins
(Hampton, Va.) finished fifth and sixth, respectively, in the 50-yard
freestyle final. Metante touched the wall in 29.71 seconds with Perkins
right behind at 29.90.

Gallaudet’s 400-yard medley relay team was third with a time of 4:52.01
while Cazenovia set a NEAC record with a time of 4:20.80.

Junior Alyssa Hanbury (Orlando, Fla.) was eighth in the 200-yard IM with a
time of 3:03.60 while sophomore Jessica Monroe (Senoia, Ga.) was eighth in
the 500-yard freestyle (6:38.11).

St Marys’ boys basketball

The Bisons took on Horace Mann in a bye game in the first round of the
ESDAA Division II Boys Basketball Tournament in Rhode Island today.  The
Herd came out fast from the start of the game and controlled the tempo. 
Horace Grant was out matched but never gave up.  After the first 10
minutes the Bisons used the bench and played a well balanced “team first”
game.  Every Bison saw significant playing time and had opportunities to
score.  The Bisons take on Rochester School for the Deaf tomorrow night in
the second round.  The winner of that game will advance to the
championship game on Sunday at 1:30pm.

Commonwealth 57  MPS 53 OT

Without two key starters from our squad, we battled with our tiredness
from last weekend at WPSD Tournament. MPS handled well at the first half
with 22-19 leading. Onto the second half, MPS started to show their
fatigue and was not able to control the lead when we were up by 11 points.
Commonwealth made some strange shots that I would never thought that it
would make it. Maybe its something that put magic spell on them and they
came back to close the gap. Several key free throws on our side didn’t
work and let Commonwealth ‘s chance at the end. They scored trey and
narrowed to one point. They put foul on our player with 11 seconds left.
Our player, 8th grader Tyler Furzland made one out of two free throws.
Commonwealth took timeout and then regrouped to put a shot. An opponent
player took one on one against our player, Kacey Monahan. What a nice
block by Kacey but time stopped as the ball went out of the court. Again,
the same player got back and turned around. He banked a ni
ce shot over Kacey’s . Tied at 45 on both.

Onto the overtime, Commonwealth took their momentum on their side. They
make almost perfect shots at all over places. We scored back and forth but
the lucky charm were on their side. We lost to them in first round
playoff.

Junior, Kacey Monahan had his monstrous game with 39 points, 14 rebounds
and 7 blocks. Only three more points for him to hit the milestone.

Next game vs. Horace Mann on March 1st.

Record now 14-9.

Coronado 26

Congratulations to our boys for clinching the district title with last
night’s win over Coronado!  Last night the Roadrunners worked so hard and
kept fighting to keep the lead for the entire game.  The score is lower
than usual because they were exhausted due to playing 7 games in two
weeks.  The Roadrunners are  looking forward to the basketball game
tomorrow vs Walatowa.  The boys are HUNGRY to break the school record for
the overall record of wins (The highest is 18-7, and we are 18-4 now). 
Please come and support our boys tomorrow at 3:30 at NMSD.

To be clear, we have the district title which means we have an automatic
bid in the State tournament.  We will still need to win the district
championship game to be considered district champions and bring the trophy
home.   The district championship game will take place at NMSD next
Saturday (February 24th) @ 5 pm @ NMSD… it is a HOME game which is great
news!!

Overall record 18-4

rebounds, and a steal. 8th grader Sophia Martinez made her first career 3
pointer in the game while also grabbing 3 rebounds. 8th grader, Olivia
Haley did a fantastic job playing with full effort and played very well
aggressively. Senior Sherrena Bob had a big impact on the floor even when
it did not show on the stats sheet, she grabbed 1 rebound and recorded 1
blocked shot. Sophomore Andrea Leyba continued to show her presence on the

won’t soon forget. From his hometown pool hall to the U.S. Open, Shane has
won it all. He’s currently ranked number one in the United States and

living out of it. A living that chose him.

He is deaf, been deaf all his life.

Gallaudet women’s basketball

Bison prevail in overtime over Wilson, 78-76

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – The Gallaudet women’s basketball team needed overtime
to defeat Wilson College, 78-76, here Wednesday night in a North Eastern
Athletic Conference (NEAC) South Division game.

Gallaudet (11-13, 8-7 NEAC) is now in position to move up to second place
in the NEAC South Division with a win in Saturday’s regular-season finale.
The Bison are confirmed to make next Tuesday’s NEAC tournament, the
question now is where will GU end up in the final standings.

Wilson (10-14, 5-10 NEAC) used a 25-16 fourth quarter to tie the game at
69 and send it to the extra period where the teams played for five more
minutes.

GU led 37-28 at the half as the two teams each scored 16 points in the
third quarter.

Junior guard/forward Hannah Neild (Litchfield, N.H.) scored a game-high 28
points as she made three three-pointers and went 9-for-10 at the free
throw line. Neild grabbed nine rebounds, blocked three shots, made three
steals and passed out two assists.

Fellow junior Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.) and senior forward Kelsey
Hudson (Blissfield, Mich.) scored 12 points each while Hudson completed
the double-double with 19 rebounds.

Freshman guard Emelia Beldon (Frederick, Md.) scored eight points, made 10
assists and four rebounds

Gallaudet men’s basketball

Loss to Wilson will send Gallaudet on the road for NEAC tournament

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – Gallaudet University lost out on improving its North
Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) men’s basketball tournament seeding
here Wednesday night as the Bison lost 96-60 to Wilson College.

Gallaudet (8-16, 7-8 NEAC) was vying for a chance to host a conference
tournament game next Tuesday night but with the loss the Bison will hit
the road. Wilson (18-6, 12-3 NEAC) is locked into the No. 2 seed in the
South Division and may host Gallaudet next week depending on what happens
Saturday in the regular-season finale for the buff and blue.

Senior forward Andy Cruz (Bronx, N.Y.) and freshman Preston Kelly
(Fishers, Ind.) led the Bison with 10 points each. Cruz grabbed eight
rebounds, made two blocks and two assists while Kelly ripped down seven

This week, the JV Basketball teams and Cheerleading has ended their
season.  The Varsity Boys, Girls Basketball, and Wrestling have been
practicing for the league playoffs this weekend!  What happens after the
league is the sectionals then the state.  Good luck to everyone!

Athlete of the Week – JADA DAWSON.  Our standout defender has been working
hard throughout the season to improve her overall basketball game. It
showed last week when the junior had a season and career high 24 points
against Holy Names on February 7 to help our team clinch the regular
season league championship.  This was a tremendous improvement from her
4.2 points season average.

Yesterday was a special moment for our Senior Sherrena Bob as we
celebrated senior night for her. The team would like to thank Sherrena for
her dedicating 3 years as a basketball player for the Roadrunners and we
will truly miss her positive demeanor and willingness to do her best. We
opened up the game trailing 6 to 2 in the first quarter, it was a physical
game but nothing the players have not experienced before. During the
second half we were down 19-8. We were unable to fire up and play
consistent. However, we came out the second half with much better effort
and scored 15 points in the second half to their 16. Freshman Victoria
Baca came out of her shooting slump and led the team with 10 points, 5
rebounds and 2 steals. Sophomore Mya Malone dominated the glass with 11
rebounds, 6 points, 3 blocks, and 1 assist. Sophomore Lindsay Hand had a
quiet night with 5 points, 5 assists, 3 rebounds, 2 steals, and 2 blocks.
8th graders, Sophia Martinez and Olivia Haley provided a gre
at spark to the team with their aggressiveness and positive efforts.
Sophia Martinez scored 2 points, grabbed 1 rebound and a steal. Olivia

rebounds. Senior Sherrena Bob played all 4 quarters and contributed to the

#6 Rhode Island vs. #3 St. Mary’s

We came into this game as underdogs and our girls embraced this mentality.
We were motivated the entire trip from R.I. to Delaware, ready to make
some noise and we did! We played St. Mary’s tough and we played spirited
basketball. The coaches were amazed by our girls’ display of teamwork as
we grabbed a critical 13-10 halftime lead. Our guard Yasmin took over in
the second half and scored eight out of nine second-half points and we
were able to stop St. Mary’s’ key players and scored a huge 23-19 victory!

Saturday, 2/10 at ESDAA Div. II Girls Basketball Tournament in Delaware
#6 Rhode Island vs. #2 Rochester

This was going to be a huge test for us  especially considering that
Rochester was one of the favorites to contend for the ESDAA Championship
this year. We played against them at MKSD in the Tip-Off Tournament in
December and they soundly defeated us without their best player.

We knew that our girls had to play even better than they did against St.
Mary’s if we were to have any chance of advancing. The first quarter saw
both teams tied at 4-4 apiece and things were looking good for us. In the
second quarter, Rochester found their scoring touch and immediately pulled
away, putting the game out of reach. Our girls tried to battle back, but
we were emotionally burned out from yesterday and couldn’t do much —
Rochester won the game 30-8.

Sunday, 2/11 at ESDAA Div. II Girls Basketball Tournament in Delaware
#6 Rhode Island vs. #4 New Jersey

We had a chance to win 3rd place, which would have been a great way to end
the season for us – but we had to go through New Jersey first. We also
played against them in the MKSD Tipoff Tournament and lost against them,
so we were looking to improve on our performance and hopefully bring home
a trophy.

Once again, our girls battled in the first half and the halftime score was
4-4 apiece. We ran out of gas in the second half and New Jersey was able
to make more of their baskets in the second half and pulled away with the
lead and the game, winning 29-10.

Tuesday February 13th
Our girls’ team were supposed to wrap up our season with a home game
against Friends Academy. Unfortunately, due to injuries to our girls’ team
from the tournament as well as fever, we had to cancel the game.

Note: The “scrimmage” on 12/21 against Horace Mann School has been changed
to an official game and a victory for RISD. There was confusion as to HMS
using overage players, which was later clarified and all players who
played in the game was eligible!

Our RISD Girls end our 2017-18 season with a 6-16 record. Very proud of
our girls for a great season and persistence even though we only had 7
girls on the team and sometimes just 5 players available for games!

RISD Girls Basketball Record: 6-16
Next Game: Season Over

RISD Boys Basketball

The 2/13 home game versus Friends Academy was unfortunately cancelled as
well due to the girls’ game being cancelled.

Our boys’ team will be practicing all week long in preparations for the
ESDAA Div. II Boys’ Basketball Tournament, which will be held on our home
floor! We hope to keep the trophy here in Providence and earn our first
championship since 2015 – we may have a chance as the #3 seed!

RISD Boys Basketball Record: 5-14
Next Game: ESDAA Division 2 Boys’ Basketball Tournament
Friday, February 16th vs. West Virginia School for the Deaf (8:00 P.M.)

St. Mary’s Boys Basketball results

The Bisons hosted Central Baptist this afternoon in Gallagher Gym.  Last
time we played Central Baptist we won at the buzzer so this was figured to
be another close game.  The Bisons jumped out to an early lead behind the
inside play of Isa Habeeb and Christian Lawrence.  Dalton Plant also
produced on the floor and Kassim Kassim hustled on defense.  Nick Barrus
couldn’t find his touch and struggled to get his offensive game at the
pace he is used to maintaining.  In the end, Central Baptist won 45-34. 
Christian Lawrence and Dalton Planty each scored 12 points for The Bisons.

The Herd migrates east this Friday morning for the 58th ESDAA Division II
Boys Basketball Tournament hosted by Rhode Island.

Our record is 8 wins and 3 losses.

Gallaudet football

new opponent

part of newspaper story

College football: Alvernia’s anticipation for new team grows

December 2017: Seating, locker rooms and press box are completed at
stadium. April 3, 2018: Spring practice is scheduled to begin. August
2018: Fall practice begins. Sept. 1, 2018: Inaugural game vs. Gallaudet at
home.

note:
there have been times in the past that when a new football team is
established, they want to play Gallaudet!

Apparently they think Gallaudet is “easy” to win.

St Vincent established football years ago and they faced
Gallaudet in the very first game they played. And
Gallaudet won.

And Gallaudet has appeared in the NCAA-III playoffs once;
most NCAA-III teams don’t.
