Gallaudet SID has a big basketball responsibillity

Meet the hoops-loving Gallaudet SID who is in charge of this season’s D3
March Madness

The email popped into Sam Atkinson’s inbox in March 2016. He opened it
and assumed immediately it was some sort of joke, or at least a mistake.
Emboldened by a change in rules that allowed staffers below the rank of
athletic director to serve on NCAA committees, Atkinson had excitedly
volunteered, figuring he’d be chosen for some small working group.

Instead, Atkinson, a sports information director (that’s sports talk for
public relations officer) had been selected as a member of the Division
III men’s basketball committee, one of the principal tasks of which is
selecting the tournament field.

To appreciate the unique absurdity of this, understand two things about a
sports information directors (SIDs): They do everything, get paid nothing
and can rank on the athletic staff totem pole somewhere between the intern
and the second assistant to the assistant video coordinator.

Kansas football

Saturday, September 22nd was a mild and humid day with the temperatures
descending to 60 degrees in the evening. It was Missouri School for the
Deaf’s Homecoming with KSD playing MSD in a competitive football game. MSD
scored quickly, with a score of 7-0. MSD’s hard hits against KSD were
impressive. The KSD’s boys wouldn’t give up and fought back hard. At
halftime, the score was 38 to 22 with KSD in the lead. Both teams played
hard for all four quarters. KSD won the game, 78 to 34. The game lasted
for
three and half hours, because the teams passed the ball a total of 86
times; KSD 51 times. KSD has defeated MSD for the past
three consecutive years!

KSD will leave for Oklahoma School for the Deaf this Friday, September 28
at 8:00AM. The football game against OSD will be on Saturday at 6:30 in
the
evening for their homecoming.  OSD and KSD are undefeated in the GPSD
league. KSD is looking forward to a challenging game because OSD has a
bigger team with great speed.

Marie Philip School Volleyball match report.

Date: Monday September 20, 2018
Location: Marie Philip School, Framingham, MA
Result: Landmark 3, MPS 0 (26-24, 25-20, 25-20)

Yesterday we hosted the Landmark School for an IGC volleyball league
match.  The Vikings showed good concentration and obvious improvements
from last season.  Our players’ defense, fundamentals, and decision making
have been better in previous matches, and unfortunately we could not
overcome our mistakes to beat Landmark.

In the first set Landmark turned the ball over with the score 23-12. 
Sabrina and Shayla nearly pulled off a comeback win for us with their
serving, but we lost the ball with the score tied 24-24.  The Vikings
recovered to win that set 26-24.

In the second set we had a 20-16 lead, but we could not concentrate to win
that set.  We turned the ball over to Landmark’s captain, #21, and she
scored 8 unanswered service points for a thrilling second set victory for
the Vikings, 25-20.

The third set was a see-saw affair, but in the end Landmark’s #12, one of
the teams’ stars, got the serve back with the score tied 20-20.  We
couldn’t adjust to her serving and the Vikings won 25-20 to take a 3-0
match win.

We will try to go 3-3 in our league when we visit the Gann Academy for a
rematch of our home defeat this Thursday.  Our record is now 4-3 (2-3
IGC).

YESTERDAY’S STATS
Sabrina Rodrigues (Jr.) – 9 Aces, 2 Kills, 1 Assist, 2 Digs, 6 Receptions,
and 13 service points

Michigan volleyball

Michigan School for the Deaf’s Lady Tartars took on New Life Christian
Academy today, 9/24/18. The girls are getting used to their new rotation
and the roles that they each play. They continue to improve everyday. 
They
deserve a lot of praise for staying motivated and continuing to make the
team better.  Kaylie Edwards is becoming more confident and was serving at
100% tonight along with Taylor Stebbins.  Our service receive errors is
what continues to hurt us. Despite the poor passing, Addison Blair is
accepting the role as the only setter and running everywhere trying to set
up a play.  She added 3 more kills to her stats tonight.  MSD lost 0-3;
scores were 8-25, 13-25, and 8-25. We take on Faithway Christian Academy
tomorrow on our home court at 5:30pm. GO TARTARS!

Rochester soccer

      Coming off a tough game against the Knights (B-squad), we
      were here to face a tougher team in Union Springs Academy
      (USA) today. With our team still slightly banged up, even
      after three days off, we knew we were going to have to
      battle extremely tough to hang with such a talented team.
      Many of our players were having to play a little roughed
      up just so we could man a full 11-team lineup. 

Unfortunately, without beating around the bush, Team USA scored
early on, and was relentless in their pursuit of pure
domination. They controlled the ball with their feet and
touch.They were able to spread the ball out with tremendous
success, leaving us quite frustrated.  We were unfortunately,
dealing with a seasoned, experienced team, with players playing
since they were toddlers. It was clearly evident they were the
better team on the pitch. We knew that, they knew that. 

However, as everyone knows, we don’t lay down for no team. We
made them work for each and every goal. Mr Radez made a
personal record in making 34 saves on the evening. He made some
Top 10 SportsCenter plays out there on the field. You could
hear the USA bench make comments of how good he was playing in
the net. 

We tried a new formation and in the first half, it took time to
get used to. At intermission, with a few adjustments, we came
out better and stronger in the second half. We held them to
less goals, and we played much better defense. 

Our bright moment of the day was our striker, Bryn Huggins, 
who playing very aggressively up front which lead to this
shining moment. She was able to take a deflected pass off a
defender and capitalized with an easy goal on net. It was a
great moment to watch. She was at the right place at the right
time. Even after the game, many of the USA athletes walked up
to Bryn and told her how impressed they were with her
aggressive play on the field. She earned a lot of respect out
there with her fierce, controlled soccer skills.

Also making some noise on the field was our very own Ben
Tantalo. He was looking like Josh Allen against the Vikings out
there. He was making some great runs, passes, and shots on
goal. He gave his all for those 4800 seconds, not even taking
one second off. As a coach, this all one can ask!

In the end, we fell 1-8, but as we all know, these “non-league”
matches are just for preparatory reasons, to get ready for our
two big tournaments, Homecoming, and ESDAA. Even though our
record does not shine us too bright, our eyes are on those
tournaments and we know we’ll be ready for our Deaf-V-Deaf
competition!

We are focused to rebound tomorrow as we try to avenge our 4-5
loss to Cornerstone Academy at their place at 4:15. This should
be another game for the ages. Come out and support us in
Brockport, we promise to put on a good show. 

Thank you again to all the friends, family , and fans that came
to support us tonight! Hope to see you all tomorrow!

Final Score

USA: 8
RSD: 1

Goals: Bryn Huggins (1)

Saves: Radez (34)

Record: 1-5

random deafsports thoughts

Wnat is FERPA?

Spelled out in full, it is The Family Educational Rights and
Privacy Act of 1974

DeafDigest Sports is bringing this up because one school
would not allow their sports scores to be posted in the
media, thinking it is a FERPA violation.

If FERPA is strictly enforced in all deaf schools, then
DeafDigest Sports would not exist!

This is not a joke – and DeafDigest Sports is not
mentioning the school that tries to enforce FERPA
with their deaf school sports program!

Very sad!

…………………………………………………

commercial sponsor of offside football penalty

in football, if you jump offside, it ia five-yard
penalty.

A deaf penalty?

Yes, in the Alaska Football League, which is a semi-pro
league.

In that league, an offside penalty is sponsored by
the Accurate Hearing Systems. It is a state-wide
hearing aid dealer.

Not sure what is this supposed to mean – does the
sponsor give league some money for each offsides
penalty, or the public announcement does not
just say “it is an offsides penalty” but says:

Accurate Hearing Systems offsides penalty?

deaf tennis

Going on right now is the Deaf World Tennis Championship,
taking place at Antalaya, Turkey.

DeafDigest Sports editor does not think there are players
from USA at that championship.

Same old story – need to raise funds, which can get quite
tiresome.

……………………………………..

random deafsports thoughts

speaking of deaf tennis above, DeafDigest Sports cannot
forget an incident involving a top deaf tennis player.
The player knew no sign language, and was interviewed by
DeafDigest Sports editor during the 1993 Deafylmpics
in Sofia, Bulgaria (on behalf of the now-closed
Silent News).

The player was so terrified of being interviewed, even
when it was done orally that the player ran away from
the interview.

The player was playing tennis for a NCAA-I program.

DeafDigest Sports editor has interviewed countless
athletes, both active and retired, over the years,
both ASL and oral – and this was the only one that
ended in a disaster!

………………………………………

professional deaf kick boxer

The K-1 Cruiserweight Tournament Card takes place today
in Japan.

One of the kick boxers is Goshyu Masanobu, Japan.

A sports writer described him as:
Widely considered to be the toughest and physically strongest Japanese
kickboxer at his weight

He is deaf. Been deaf all his life.

by Shenandoah University. The Bison accumulated 308 team points on the
hilly course in Kernstown Battlefield

Gallaudet freshman Sierra Pratt (Katy, Texas) was the first Bison to
finish in 56th place with a time of 23:54.3. Sophomore Taylor Nguyen
(Ballwin, Mo.) was the second Bison to cross the finish line in 76th place
(25:33.7). Junior Fatuma Ali (Tucson, Ariz.) was Gallaudet’s third runner
to complete the course in 28:06.3 in 91st place followed by freshman Maria
Guzman Mejia (Bronx, N.Y.) in 97th place (29:25.3) and sophomore Jessalyn
Wortham (Chandler, Ariz.) in 102nd place (31:52.4).

WINCHESTER, Va. – The Gallaudet University men’s cross country team
finished 13th out of 14 teams at the Hornet Harrier hosted by Shenandoah
University on Saturday. The Bison tallied 390 team points as they ran
up-and-down the hilly cross country course at Kernstown Battlefield.

Freshman Jared Spinale (Camby, Ind.) was Gallaudet’s top finisher as he
crossed the finish line in 80th place with a time of 23:58.3. Junior
Dalton Attanasi (Hammonton, N.J.) followed in 94th place (25:45.1). Junior
Kai Christenberry (Birmingham, Ala.) was the third Bison to finish in 95th
place (25:48.5) while the duo of freshmen Liam Painter (Edgewood, N.M.)

Gallaudet sweeps NEAC crossover Saturday in New York

COBLESKILL, N.Y. – The Gallaudet University women’s volleyball team
traveled north to play against SUNY Poly and SUNY Cobleskill in two North
Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) matches Saturday and came away with two
conference wins.

Gallaudet (6-7, 3-0 NEAC) dropped the first set, 22-25, to SUNY Poly
(4-11, 2-2 NEAC) to begin the day but didn’t drop another set the rest of
the day. The Bison took the next three sets against 25-12, 25-14, 25-17.
In the second match, blanked the Fighting Tigers 25-17, 25-21, 25-15 to
complete the sweep.

note:
The 6-7 overall record is misleading. The coaching staff schedules
matches against some of the nation’s top NCAA-III teams in order to
toughen them for the all-important conference meets. So far Gallaudet
is unbeaten in conference play – but it is early in the season.

Bison fall to five-time defending NEAC champions on the road

READING, Pa. – The Gallaudet University women’s soccer team faced a tough
task Saturday on the road going up against Penn St.-Berks, the five-time
defending North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) champions. The Nittany
Lions shut out the Bison, 10-0.

………………………………………….

Gallaudet men’s soccer

READING, Pa. – The Gallaudet University men’s soccer team stunned Penn
St.-Berks on the road Saturday with a 2-0 shutout in a North Eastern
Athletic Conference (NEAC) game.

On a blustery and autumn-inspired Saturday afternoon, Gallaudet (3-4, 2-2
NEAC) fended off the Nittany Lions (3-5-1, 1-3 NEAC) for a hard-wrought
victory with two second-half goals. Freshman forward Chad Johnson
(Gardena, Calif.) scored back-to-back goals in the 56th and 81st minute.

Johnson put GU on the board at the 55:58 mark as he flipped the ball up
over the head of Nittany Lion goalie Trent Johnson (six saves). The Bison
continued to put pressure on the Penn St.-Berks defense and goal. Freshman
defender Julien Cano (Avondale, Ariz.) took a corner kick for GU in the
79th minute and two minutes later the Bison found the back of the net
again. Senior midfielder Tim Artinian (Rochester, N.Y.) sent a cross into
the goalie box where Johnson fired a shot inside the left post.

Freshman goalie Shane Angel (Mechanicsville, Md.) made seven saves in the
win.

Rhode Island soccer

Our first home game was supposed to take place on Tuesday 9/18, but it got
postponed due to the heavy rain effects from Hurricane Florence
(rescheduled for 9/26). So our first home game would be on Friday against
Blackstone Valley Prep. It was a beautiful, cool New England fall kind of
afternoon – perfect conditions for a soccer game!

We started out strong with a lot of energy and enthusiasm as our students
were hungry to earn their first win of the season! We got our first goal
of
the season less than 20 minutes into the first half on a nice goal by our
midfielder Jayden. BVP showed a strong motion game, connecting on a lot of
their passes as they tried to break through our defense, which held strong
up to this point. Eventually BVP was able to sneak in a goal inside the
box
to tie the game 1-1 before halftime.

We were tied – but it was up to our kids to maintain our defensive energy
while providing enough support to the offense so we could reclaim the
lead.
Soccer is a long game and it can only be won through preserving and play
the second half as strong as we did in the first half. Our team’s energy
took a dip in the second half and we gave up three unanswered goals
through
miscommunications with our substitutes as we moved players around in order
to balance our players’ energy. We were able to score a goal on a penalty
kick to cut BVP’s lead to 4-2 with little over 12 minutes left. We
couldn’t
get another goal in and lost the game 5-2.

BVP  -  1  4   – 5
RISD -  1  1   – 2

Jayden E. – 1 Goal
Timothy J. – 1 Goal (PK)
Jose S. – 9 Saves

RISD Soccer Record: 0-2

random deafsports thoughts

Those that follow big time college football know that
Old Dominion upset Virginia Tech.

Way back in the sixties, Old Dominion became a new
member of the Mason-Dixon Conference. Gallaudet
was a long time charter member of that conference.

Anyway, the Old Dominion wrestling team started
winning all these individual conference wrestling
championships.

In 1966, two Gallaudet wrestlers upset their
Old Dominion opponents, reaching the conference
championship finals. The hearing fans cheered
for Gallaudet as they were tired of Old Dominion
sweeping up these championships!

Both Gallaudet wrestlers, by the way, lost in the
finals – but at least they were able to eliminate
their Old Dominion opponents.

Years later, the conference folded and Old Dominion
moved up to NCAA-I and Gallaudet dropped wrestling
as a varsity program.

Marie Phillip volleyball

Location: Cambridge School of Weston, Weston, MA
Result: MPS 3, CSW 0 (25-14, 25-15, 25-20)

The Marie Philip School Lady Ghosts started our Homecoming weekend by
visiting the Cambridge School of Weston for an IGC league match.  The
support from our school at the pep rally earlier today galvanized our
players and we controlled most of the match.  Zora had an incredible
serving match!

In the 1st set Zora set the tone by starting us with 8 consecutive service
points.  Our other servers picked up from where she left off and we won
25-14.

In the 2nd set, Zora rallied the Lady Ghosts from a 15-9 deficit to a
25-15 set win with 15 consecutive service points!  A lot of credit is
shared by her teammates as all the girls played disciplined defense and
made good judgements and decisions on the fly.

Our serving was more balanced in the third set, and all three of our
available subs made great aces and kills.  The Gryphons continued to play
hard, but we were able to hold on for a 25-20 set win and 3-0 match
victory.

Our next match is tomorrow (Saturday) as we will host the American School
for the Deaf for Homecoming Day.  Our match will start at 12 P.M.  Our
season record is now 3-2 (2-2 IGC).

random deafsports thoughts

Six and eight man football rules can be confusing

some games are played on a 100 yard football field

some games are played on a 80 yard football field

some six man games allow quarterback to hand off the ball

some six man games require quarterback to pitch out

some states enforce 45-point blow out rule

some states allow game to continue even if it is a blow out

and in some cases, the home team decides the game
rules, catching opponents off guard, trying to
re-learn few minutes before the game starts!

even with 11 man football, some states do not allow
blocking below the waist

And so on!

Gallaudet volleyball

Bison chomp Gators with 3-1 win

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University women’s volleyball team defeated
Notre Dame of Maryland University, 3-1, in a non-conference match here
Thursday night before a raucous and spirited crowd in the Field House.

The match was originally scheduled for earlier this week on Tuesday, but
was postponed due to a slippery court in Baltimore.

Gallaudet (4-7) and NDMU (10-2) were closely matched as each set was
fairly tight throughout the duration of the match. The Bison took the
first set 25-19 but fell behind early in the second set and couldn’t
recover as the Gators bit back and won 16-25 to tie the match. The Bison
refocused but continued to allow the Gators to linger around before GU put
them away in the third set, 25-17, and fourth set, 25-21

year.  Our Lady Ghosts got a few mistakes out of the way early in our sets
and stuck to our game plan to control the pace of the match.  We were able
to get everyone at least two sets today.  Our next match will be another
league match tomorrow as we visit the Cambridge School of Weston.  Our
record is now 2-2 (1-2 IGC).

serving at 100%.  Our service reception was rough tonight and Landmark won
0-3. Scores were 8-25, 10-25, and 8-25. We played a couple more sets to

Rochester soccer

Even though our 1-3 record doesn’t show are true
potential, we know we are a lot better than what our
record indicates. When the Red Knights drove up to 1545
St. Paul Street, game was on! We were definitely looking
to bounce back and get a “W’” on the board. The Knights
were also looking for their first win of the season as
well. With two evenly matched teams, I knew we were in
for another doozy.
Just when I thought we’d have our full lineup for the very
first time, a student-athlete has been sent home sick with a
high fever. The curse continues on, but we still have 13
willing and able Wildcat Warriors ready to slash these
Knights.

This was our strongest lineup though since the start of the
year, and the game looked promising for us. There was an aura
about our team that was screaming, “WIN!” “WIN!” “WIN!”
Students were motivated, getting in a good warm up prior to the
game, receptive to coaches’ feedback. All tell-tale signs
something great was about to happen here on our field. The
initial scouting report on Knights looked encouraging for the
Wildcats as well. We felt we had more speed in most positions,
and they only had a tad more experience than us, but as we all
know, we make that up in our grittiness on the pitch.

Our first true sign of something good was about to occur this
fine evening, just occurred right before the start of the game.
The Wildcats won the COIN TOSS!!!!! RSD was able to ensure that
the Knights’ goalie was looking into the sun during the second
half. Everything was going to plan at this point. After the
customary handshakes and referee discussion, teams went to
their coaches for one last meeting of the minds. We had our
game plan, and we were ready to execute.

For the first time this year, our very own, Bode Aggas was
starting, hoping to give our offense a well-needed boost. Here
we go, the whistle has blown, and off we went. Early on, teams
were feeling each other out, getting their marks, and learning
each other’s tendencies. Both teams had some tough
opportunities early on to get on the board, but with both teams
having well-seasoned goalies in net, both teams were kept
scoreless.

However, in the 21st minute, The Scarlet Knights were first to
get on the scoreboard with a beautiful shot that just snuck by
Radez. This was not exactly how we drew up the game plan, but
we have been here countless times on several occasions, We were
not phased by it at all, knowing very well there still was 60
minutes of soccer to be played.

Just 10 minutes later in the game, Coates steals the ball on
our side of the field by the penalty box. You could see the
controlled-rage as I like to call it in his eyes and the
coaching staff knew exactly what he was going to do. He was
going to be a playmaker and make something happen here and now!
He was going to do something special here that the NDIAA should
take notice of. Come November 1st, there is going to be some
chit-chat about this captain on the RSD Team.

Back to the game, as Coates was on full-blown Auto Pilot as he
was jostling through various defenders. He gets by 3 defenders
with relative ease and is now at midfield with a 4 flat line to
beat. Thomas Coates was the fastest individual on this field
and he was about to put on a little show for the hometown
crowd. With a blink of an eye he was 1-1 on with the goalie,
and he just let that ball go, and it was going straight to the
far post, but would it hit or just sneak in?!?! We knew the
goalie had no chance, our biggest enemy at this point was the
post.

And just like that, reminiscent of McCoy’s legendary 75 yard
touchdown run against the Jaguars to propel the Bills to an
amazing victory in that wondrous game of ’16 at Rich Stadium,
the Wildcats have evened the score courtesy of Coates! Similar
to McCoy just coming of the injured reserve, so was Coates.
Could this be the jumpstart RSD needed to get us where we
needed to go!?!?!

We took that momentum into halftime with the score notched at 1
apiece. Coaches went over the a few things, just a few tweaks,
but overall, both teams were playing excellent soccer.
Hopefully, with a couple adjustments, some H20 in the system,
and some well needed rest for our starters, we’d be able to
come out of the gate, ready to take the lead.

Unfortunately for us, just 10 minutes into the second half, the
Knights drew up a textbook play that coaches dream of to see
come to fruition. Knights carry the ball to the corner, draw
the defense out, offense shoots a beautiful cross, and one of
the Knights hits a beautiful one-timer to regain the lead 2-1.
Here we are again, our backs against the wall. Do we crumble or
do we rise?!?! You don’t need me to answer that do you?

We kept the pressure on, and as always, we were relentless. We
were playing with even more intensity and tenacity now that
we’re down by 1. We were definitely moving in the right
direction. And there it was….the opportunity we needed. A
beautiful blast from just inside the box, deflected by the
goalie, but our very own Michalek who was crashing the goal,
was right there to get a second attempt on it. He takes a shot,
but just came up short, and the Knights escaped one right
there. Few moments later, on a transition, the Knights moved up
the ball well to our side of the field, and from the outside, a
beautiful deep arching shot that we knew we cause problems if
Radez didn’t make a clean, secure catch. Ball is deflected off
him, and a Knights attacker was there to put it in to take a
commanding 3-1 lead. Knights win 3-1.

Another tough loss for the Wildcats, but another promising
game. Fortunately, for the RSD Wildcats, we’ll get another
attempt at these Knights on their field. I’m quite confident,
we are capable of defeating this team, and we’re going to be
ready come next time. For now though, the game is in the books,
and we look forward to today’s practice. We’ll work hard, and
we’ll be ready come next week when we have 3 games!

Thank you again for all the fans that came out and our Inner
Circle Booster Club for providing all the nutritious snacks and
drinks for post-game festivities (and all the previous games as
well)! They are greatly appreciated.

Gallaudet men’s soccer

Bison fall to defending NEAC champions at home under the lights

WASHINGTON – It was an uphill battle for the Gallaudet University men’s
soccer team here Wednesday night under the lights at Hotchkiss Field as
the Bison played host to Penn St.-Abington, the defending North Eastern
Athletic Conference (NEAC) champions.

Penn St.-Abington (5-2, 3-0 NEAC) scored 10 minutes into the match and
continued to score at will en route to an 8-1 win over Gallaudet (2-4, 1-2
NEAC).

In the second half, Penn St.-Abington picked up where it left off with
four more goals before Gallaudet got on the scoreboard in the 87th minute.

Sophomore Sean O’Callaghan (San Diego, Calif.) booted a high-arcing pass
from midfield into the Nittany Lion goalie box where freshman forward Chad
Johnson (Gardena, Calif.) got his foot on the ball and netted his fourth
goal of the season.

Freshman goalie Shane Angel (Mechanicsville, Md.) made nine saves in the
loss.

GU drops conference game to Penn St.-Abington

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University women’s soccer team was shut out
here Wednesday evening by Penn St.-Abington, 4-0, in a North Eastern
Athletic Conference (NEAC) match.

The Bison women’s soccer team sported special rainbow shoe laces today as
they participated in the second annual #PlayWithPride week, sponsored by
the United Soccer Coaches LGBT & Allies Advocacy Group. Teams across the
country are showing their support for athletes and coaches of all sexual
orientations by wearing rainbow laces during the Second Annual Play With
Pride Week during Sept. 17-23, 2018.

Penn St.-Abington (2-3-1, 1-2 NEAC) scored two goals in each half as four
different Nittany Lions scored goals against the Bison. The visitors did
their most damage off free kicks as they scored on long-range shots from
20-25 yards out.

Gallaudet (3-4, 1-2 NEAC) was limited to seven shots as half came from two
players. Sophomore midfielder Sharon Castillo (Dallas, Texas) and senior
midfielder Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.) led the team with two shots each.
GU had four shots on goal including one off Castillo’s foot.

Carolinas football

Carolinas is a combined team of two schools – North Carolina School
for the Deaf, located in the western part of state, and Eastern
North Carolina, located in the eastern part of state.

The floods impacted the eastern part of the state, but not the
western part of the state.

The North Carolina school was open while the Eastern North Carolina
school was closed.

It was a bad situation – because the state high school athletic
association rules require three days of football practice, if a school
has missed five days of practice – before a game could be played.

This is the reason why their game, scheduled this week, has been
cancelled.

newspaper story

Volleyball material: Lummer will be part of bright future for MSD

Maryland School for the Deaf volleyball coach Christine DiMarco doesn’t
see a player who is slowly trying to find her way.

That might be the case with many freshmen who immediately start playing
varsity athletics when they reach high school, but Citrine Lummer isn’t
one of them.

“I don’t see her as a freshman,” DiMarco said Tuesday after the host
Orioles defeated Greater Grace Christian Academy 25-4, 25-11, 25-13. “I
see her as volleyball material.

“She has everything. She can attack, she can play defense, she can go
for every ball. She’s a natural athlete.”

Lummer tallying a team-high seven kills, five digs and two aces against
the Eagles shows the all-around ability DiMarco sees in the 5-foot-10
outside hitter. Lummer plays on a team with established seniors such as
Cassidy Perry and Rajena Guettler. But joining a team with nine
upperclassmen didn’t become daunting for Lummer, DiMarco said, because
the freshman spent plenty of time getting to know her teammates on travel
teams during the summer.

“It was easy [fitting in with my teammates] because they were very
welcoming,” said Lummer, who has played high-level volleyball since she
was a third-grader. “They felt bonded as a team.”

The warm welcome, Lummer said, made it that much easier to get on the
court and play to the best of her ability. Lummer made her presence felt
late in Tuesday’s match against Greater Grace (2-4) — after DiMarco
chose to rest some of her major contributors.

The third set provided a glimpse of what seems to be a bright future for
MSD. Lummer stood out in a young lineup, hammering five of her seven kills
from the outside hitter spot. The lineup also included sophomore setter
Alyssa Glennon, who in the first set pounded four of her five aces while
the Orioles reeled off 12 consecutive points. She also collected four
assists.

The 6-foot Perry again showed her versatility, collecting two kills, four
digs, one block and five aces. Guettler hammered six kills, and junior
setter Sascha Tansky finished with a team-high 12 assists and two aces.

Serving proved an overall area of strength for MSD as Milana Bielucke
tallied six of the Orioles’ 20 aces.

When asked what he thought stood out in the Orioles, Greater Grace coach
Aerion Slocumb brought up the impact of Perry and Guettler, particularly
as middle hitters. When Perry, Guettler and three other seniors graduate
in the spring, Lummer could become the Orioles’ go-to player on offense.
She’ll have some help from the likes of Tansky and what DiMarco sees as
a talented class of current eighth-graders.

DiMarco likes Lummer’s talent, but she might appreciate her desire to
work hard and improve even more.

“She plays with confidence, and she wants more,” DiMarco said. “She
wants to hit every ball, she wants to save every ball. She will make
things happen on the court.”

What do you do when the perennial powerhouse of the Rochester Rapids
visits your home pitch?!?! Most teams in Upstate NY fold up shop and let
them do what they do best, and that’s steamroll the competition. However,
what people do not know, The Wildcats do not just lay down for any team,
regardless of their accolades, under any circumstance. PERIOD! We may not
be the fastest nor strongest, or even the most talented team on the field
at any given game, but what we lack in, we make up for in Wildcat Pride.
With that pride comes an everlasting supply of pure grit and resilience.
The Wildcats have been known to cause a surprise every once in a while.
Will this Tuesday mark another historic performance of the Rochester
Wildcats?!?!? Let’s read on and find out…..

At the start of the game, anyone watching the game could tell we were
playing a highly skilled, talented soccer ball. Their ability to move the
ball at ease with crisp, smooth passes is a telltale sign that these boys
have been playing *fútbol  *since they came out of the womb. This didn’t
deter us nor did we back down. We played with tenacity and resolve as we
battled for each ball. These Wildcats were committed to the challenge they
bestowed upon themselves.

However, sometimes your level best is not enough, and the Rapids ended the
first half with a commanding 4-0 lead going into halftime. At this point
in
time, most teams would just give up, wave the white flag, and play with
the
mindset, let’s just not get injured. We are not your average run of the
mill team though. We’re the Rochester Wildcats. We do not back down from a
challenge. You didn’t see no *Vontae Davis in Orange* march off the pitch
at intermission. We play to the very last minute, because that’s what
these
boys and girls are trained to do!

We had one simple goal, and that was to score during the second half (no
pun intended). The first half was in the books, and this second half is a
new slate. We focus on one goal at a time. Keep playing hard, keep looking
for opportunities, and keep applying the pressure, and eventually, if all
fairs well, we sneak one in the back of the net.

Let me tell you a little something about interscholastic athletics. There
are many people that will tell you that the score shown on the scoreboard
at 0:00 is what is most important, but in reality, in the grand scheme of
things, is actually quite meaningless. Don’t get me wrong, I am one of the
most competitive people out there, and I despise losing, but there is a
bigger picture that must be fully understood with athletics. There is a
lot
to learn about one’s character when your back is against the wall. When
you’re winning or playing competitive matches, it’s easy to show the world
how resilient you are, how hard working you are, but what do you do when
you’re down 4-0 and know the game is out of reach?!?! Do you pack up shop?
Do you stop going for 50-50 balls? Do you not make that run knowing very
well it most likely will lead to nothing? All these questions were
answered
today about our very own Wildcats.

Let me tell you something boys and girls, these Wildcats played their
hearts off to the very last whistle. They worked their tail-ends, fighting
tooth and nail for every single opportunity. They walked off the field red
in the face with nothing left in the tank. Yeah, we lost the game, we got
shutout, but what we gained from this experience that will pay dividends
later in the season. This hard-nosed, dedicated team of individuals truly
showed how gritty they are. There is zero doubt in our minds when it comes
to Deaf vs. Deaf competition, we’ll be ready to go toe-to-toe with any
team, regardless if they’re Division I or Division II. It takes a lot of
guts for what these student-athletes did on that field today. When most
people would give up and throw in the towel, these individuals risen up
and
put on a performance that can’t be seen or understood on any scoreboard.

This was one of those loses where you walk off the field, head up high and
proud to be a Wildcat. Keep in mind, we held them to a mere goal in the
second half with Ben Radez tallying 28 saves on the night. You had to be
there to understand how tough these students played for 80 minutes, it was
a sight to be seen.

But, now, we look forward, we take on division rival, Scarlet Knights at
5:15 on our home field tomorrow. Please come and support our Wildcats!

St Mary’s volleyball

The lady Bisons opened up their season with a scrimmage against Tapestry
yesterday afternoon. Though it was not an official game, it gave us a
chance to see where our girls were starting off this year. Our girls did
not disappoint, working hard together to take on the more experience
Tapestry team.  Julia Bronneberg led the team in points and assists while
Cami Cole stepped up her game with 7 attacks and 3 kills. Elise Watson was
a great utility player and Keara, Aleyshka and Emma all helped out with
some key points throughout the game. Though they fought hard the girls
fell in three straight sets to Tapestry. However everyone present said
that these girls did fight hard and never gave up. We travel to Olean
tomorrow to take on the tall New Life Christian team. Please wish all the
girls good luck and we hope to see you all at our home opener on Sept.
26th.

Thank you,

St Mary’s soccer

The Bison’s varsity soccer team began its 2018 regular season schedule on
the road this past Tuesday in a NFCAA league matchup against Chesterton.
The squad has brought back the majority of last year’s players and we were
lucky enough to add on some fresh faces to the roster (Magdi Mohamed &
Ethan Antone) in an effort to build off of last season’s success.
Unfortunately, the match didn’t play out how the Bison’s would have liked.
Chesterton took full advantage of the fact that we were starting a rookie
goal keeper (Michael Norris) who was getting his first opportunity to play
in between the posts.   Despite Michael’s natural athletic ability, the
coaching staff knew there may be some situations that he may struggle with
because of lack of varsity game experience.  That said,  although our
defense did their best to contain our opponent, there were still 5 goals
that got past us.  On a positive note, last year’s deaf all-American, Nick
Barrus, picked up where he left off by sc
oring twice to make it a 3 goal deficit.  Although we left the game
disappointed in the loss, it was easy for us to recognize the mistakes
that we made and attempt to fix them before our home opener next week
Tuesday against the Stanley G. Falk school.  Come support the Bison’s next
week and show how “our spirit is strong”.

Overall Record: 0-1

some 11-man deaf soccer teams strip down to 8-man
when playing some 8-man opponents

DeafDigest Sports was discussing this topic with
a long time coach at a deaf school.

Both agreed that 11 to 8 man football is different
from 11 to 8 man soccer.

In football, two linemen and one back are taken out
from 11-man teams

In soccer, the coach said 8-man coaches know how
to play the game, while the 11-man coaches that
play 8-man must adjust to less players on the
front line or the midfielder positions plus
even one man less on the defense.

Gallaudet volleyball

Slick court swamps Bison volleyball match vs. Gators, game moved to
Thursday at GU

BALTIMORE – For the second time in a less than a week, Hurricane Florence
has impacted the Gallaudet University women’s volleyball schedule. This
time the remnants of Hurricane Florence moved through the Maryland region
overnight as heavy rains dumped more than 3 inches of rain in some areas.

The Bison (3-7) were slated to play at Notre Dame of Maryland University
on Tuesday night on Gator Court in a non-conference match against the
Gators (10-1). Gator Court, built in 1989, took on water Tuesday and the
courts were deemed too slick and unplayable for this evening’s match.

Gallaudet will drive home and play host to the Gators on Thursday, Sept.
20, at 7:30 p.m.

GU’s home match with St. Mary’s College of Maryland was moved from Sept.
12 until Sept. 27 due to Hurricane Florence last week.

Gallaudet men’s basketball

from a Gallaudet tweet

Former #GallaudetU student and basketball player, Orion Palmer, E-’16,
describes his experience and the communication strategies used during his
tryout with @nbagleague team, the @CapitalCityGoGo in a post-tryout
interview with @MTCwithMook.

note:

over the years there have been several Gallaudet basketball
players that played in lower pro-level basketball leagues.
The most notable one was Noah Downes who played in several
pro leagues during the 1920′s. There was no NBA at that time
and so, these leagues were considered the elite.

Only one, a woman, played a pre-season game with the Washington
Mystics of the WNBA.

random deafsports thoughts

If one surfs the posted tweets on the deaf in football,
he will find that the Gallaudet huddle origins is one
of the most re-tweeted tweets. All of them say that
Gallaudet originated the huddle (which is true)
but almost all of them do not mention the reason
for the huddle’s origins (hiding signals against

CSD enters a week where we will have all road games against some of our
toughest opponent this year.  The Volleyball team will play two road games
and then participate in the Berkeley High School Invitational on Saturday,
hosted by one of the best team in all of Northern Coast Section along with
20 other big schools.  The Football and Cheerleading team will head to San
Francisco to play the big boys of Burton High School on Friday afternoon
in the battle of the two undefeated teams.

Athlete of the Week – Chloe Harmount.  Our sophomore do-it-all player has
impressed her coaches and the Athletic Department by her determination and
desire to become a better player.  She has been very willing to float
between the JV and Varsity team and change positions to help the team.
Her positive spirit, energy, and hustle is always felt in the gym every
day!

random deafsports thoughts

those that follow the NFL pretty much know that
Oakland coach Jon Gruden made a big blunder by
trading best defensive player Khalil Mack to
the Chicago Bears.

Years ago, a Gallaudet football coach, who lacked
patience with freshmen football players that
lacked ASL skills, cut a pretty good football
player. He was tough and aggressive, and did
not back down during drills and scrimmages,
yet was cut. The very shocked freshman then
went out for the wrestling team, even though
he never wrestled in his life. He became a
campus sensation because of his wrestling
skills. Not giving up on football, he
came out for the team the following season,
and became a four season starter at running back.

In other words, the player that is cut may come
back to haunt the coach!

Kansas football story

Football Story 2018*

*Kansas School for the Deaf*

Wednesday, September 15th was a very hot and humid day with the
temperature
soaring to 95 degrees and feeling over 100 degrees at 2:00 in the
afternoon. Kansas School for the Deaf played football against Minnesota
State Academy for the Deaf. The boys survived all 4 quarters. They kept
hydrated by drinking a lot of water.  KSD beat MSAD, 58 to 14. All of the
KSD players played in the game. MSAD has always been a challenging team to
play.

KSD will leave for Missouri School for the Deaf this Friday, September 21
at 1:00 PM. The football game against MSD will be on Saturday at 7:00 in
the evening for their homecoming.  KSD is looking forward to a challenging
game because of their history with Missouri. MSD is well-known as the
speed
team! MSD and KSD have always been rivals. KSD leads the record with 43
wins, 41 losses and 3 ties. KSD and MSD have been playing against each
other since 1920……… great history!!

Marie Philip volleyball

Location: Eagle Hill School, Hardwick, MA

Result: MPS 3, EHS 1 (25-17, 26-24, 20-25, 25-17)

Yesterday the Marie Philip Lady Ghosts had a fun road trip to Hardwick for
a non-conference match at Eagle Hill School.  The Pioneers had a beautiful
campus and their community was very welcoming of our team.  Most of the
Eagle Hill girls were still learning the sport so we stuck to two team
plans: get our subs at least one set of action and to control the match
with our strategy and skills rather than react to our opponents’ style of
play.

In the first set Sabrina had a run of 12 consecutive service points and
our starters stayed in control for a 25-17 first set win.

We played our two available subs for the entire 2nd set and they
contributed well to an exciting set.  The Pioneers had a small lead for
the beginning of the set, but our team worked out of a few kinks and got a
small lead late in the set.  Eagle Hill managed to tie the set 24-24, but
our experience with long sets was apparent and we took the lead and a
26-24 set win to lead 2-0.

For the third set we rested both of our captains and put back the starters
who rested in the 2nd set.  The subs and other starters worked on
communication, responsibilities, and positioning without the captains on
the court to guide them.  Eagle Hill’s libero #32 enjoyed a run of 11
consecutive service points to rally her team from a 14-10 deficit to a
20-14 lead!  Our girls did a good job of chipping away at the deficit but
the Pioneers held on to take a 25-20 set win.

For the 4th set, co-captain Shayla took advantage of her rest from the 3rd
set to score 10 service points for us and Sabrina added 5 of her own.  The
Pioneers were worn out from all of our aces.  We won the set 25-17 and
match 3-1.  It was great to have a first win to show for all our work
towards our new offense and playbook this season.  We will use team
practices to continue to make improvements in order for us to be ready for
Thursday’s IGC league match vs. the Newman School.  Our record is now 1-2
(0-2 IGC).

STATS
Sabrina Rodrigues (Jr.) – 15 Aces, 7 kills, 1 Dig, 8 Receptions, and 25 service points
Faith Kirlis (6th) – 3 Aces, 2 Kills, 4 Assists, 1 Dig, and 3 service points
Samantha Fernsebner (8th) – 1 Ace, 1 Kill, 1 Assist, 3 Receptions, and 3 service points
Shayla Rochette (Fr.) – 14 Aces, 3 Kills, 1 Reception, and 14 service points
Zora Elliott-Mendelsohn (Fr.) – 4 Aces, 2 Kills, 9 Assists, and 3 service points
Rita Child (7th) – 3 Aces, 1 Kill, 2 Assists, and 6 service points
Carleigh Babbit (8th) – 2 Aces, 1 Dig, 2 Receptions, and 4 service points

Texas cross country

*TSD HS RACE SUMMARY: TEXAS LUTHERAN UNIVERSITY BULLDOG CC INVITATIONAL,
Saturday, September 15, 2018*

On Saturday, September 15, the TSD CC Team traveled to Texas Christian
University in Seguin to run in the *TLU Bulldog CC Invitational.* The
runners braved the torrential downpours, mud, and water filled paths just
deep enough to kayak through. All of this compliments of the cyclonic
weather front passing through South Central Texas yesterday. This didn’t
faze our or any runner out there, as a matter of fact, running was
actually
even more fun!

Running in the *Varsity Girls 5K* was senior *Jaida Scott (25:31)*. Her
finish time was better compared to her time in 2017 on the same course.
Sophomore *Anabelle Weaver* ran cautiously on the mud-filled parts of the
course, achieving a time of *26:22*. Junior *Jordan Leach* followed
closely, achieving her 3rd season best in a row, making waves in the
rivers
on the running paths, coming in with a time of *29:49.*

In the JV Boys 5K, junior *Brody Vukmonich* achieved a 3rd consecutive
season best with a time of *25:03*. Next to finish was freshman Hawkins
Morgan, also accomplishing a 3rd consecutive season best, completed the
rain-soaked course in *26:42 *with a family fan club of 6 members cheering
him on. Coming in next was another freshman, *Josue Flores*, who ran in
*33:49*, his first official HS cross-country 5K. *Josue* was actually in
the lead among TSD runners in the beginning of the race having started out
pretty quickly, showing great promise. In time, with more experience, he
shall maximize his true potential as a runner. *Kristjan Varela*,
sophomore, running in his 2nd 5K this season, finishing in a personal best
by 7 minutes, with a time of *40:25*. Shortly thereafter, freshman *Willie
Hanna*, crossed the finish line with a 5-minute personal best with a time
of *41:50.*

And for the final HS race of the day, the JV Girls 5K, sophomore* Kylie
Jackson *ran her first 5K of the season, making splashes, as she ran
through “the river,” achieving a time of *44:19.* A determined
*Jessica
Davalos*, showing her deep Davalos focus to her team and coaches as she
ran
through the mid-way point of the course, heading out for the 2nd loop, and
then crossing the finish line with the same ‘Davalosness’ at the
halfway
point, with a time of *44:23.* This was also *Jessica’s* first 5K of the
season.

This Thursday, September 20, the TSD HS CC Team will travel to Salado to
run in the somewhat hilly Tenroc Ranch Cross-Country Course hosted by
Salado HS. We shall expect a full team this Thursday and dry weather.

DeafDigest Sports wishes to get updated on all athletic scores
from deaf schools  – volleyball, football, soccer and cross
country.

Some schools tell DeafDigest Sports editor to please look at
maxpreps.

DeafDigest Sports editor has this same response – there are
50-55 deaf schools, and if the editor has to go into
maxpreps every day then there will be no time to distribute
DeafDigest Sports on a daily and regular basis.

Thank you for understanding!

We defeated the Arkansas School for the Deaf today in our season opener in
Little Rock, 36-28. It was a hard fought game, in which we were able to

Michigan volleyball

Michigan School for the Deaf was back in Kentucky this weekend. Hurricane
Florence brought the heat and humidity. The heat index was in the 100яяs
all weekend, which meant lots of water breaks to keep the girls hydrated.
Teams out east werenяяt able to make it, but we still had some friendly,
good competition. The Tartars played the Ohio Spartans on Friday. Both
teams fought the heat and played for over 2 hours! We played best 3 out of
5. Scores were 29-27, 18-25, 21-25, & 21-25. Closing the match at 1-3, OSD
won. Addison Blair added 6 kills and 14 aces to her stats; while Chloe
Woggerman received at 86%. We played short handed for 1 game, due to an
injury, but the girls never gave up! Saturday the heat increased, but so
did our motivation. We took on Kentucky School for the Deaf early in the
morning. Since it was still cool outside we continued to play best 3 out
of 5.  Addison Blair shook the court with 100% receiving, 83% serving, and
adding 5 more kills. Crystal Katcher w
as serving at 80%, while getting 6 aces. Despite improvements, Kentucky
won 0-3; scores were 11-25, 18-25, and 25-14. Next up was Mississippi
School for the Deaf. Since the day got hotter matches were reduced to best
2 out of 3. The Bulldogs has some tall players, which reduced our
confidence. We lost 0-2; scores were 16-25 & 13-25. Violetta Colter
changed her serving strategy and it worked! She was serving at 100%.
Taylor Stebbins also improved her serving, 91%. This loss meant we were
going up against Ohio School for the Deaf again fighting for 3rd place.
Khadija Aliяяs serves got better throughout the game. Meanwhile Addison
Blair racked up 16 aces, serving at 95%, and once again receiving at 100%.
She carried the Tartars to their first & important win! MSD won 2-0;
scores were 27-25 & 25-12.

We survived that. Credit to MSD for playing a tough game!

Rhode Island soccer

On Saturday, September 15, Rhode Island’s coed soccer team traveled down
to Lexington School for the Deaf in Queens, NY to kick off our 2018
season.

We only brought 9 players and played 8v8 with just one sub– but all nine
of our players played great despite an on-and-off two weeks worth of
practice.

We allowed two goals due to breaking in our young goaltender, but we
settled down very quickly afterwards and played shutdown defense as our
goalie recorded 17 saves.

Our offense slowly came together throughout the game and pieced together
some attacks, but couldn’t convert on any of them. There were a lot of
positives from this game and we look forward to improvements for next
week.

RISD – 0  0  – 0
LSD -  2   0  – 2

RISD Soccer Record: 0-1
Next Game: Tuesday, September 18 vs. West Bay Christian Academy

Rochester soccer

Historically speaking, RSD always struggles during games with long
commutes. Thursday was a 90 minute haul south of Geneva to face on the
Eagles of Freedom Village, a very consistent team which happens to be in
the A division. However, this year was a new year, our Wildcats are a more
fierce, grittier, experienced team.

Twelve Wildcats arrived poised and ready to endure the scorching heat for
80 consecutive minutes with little to no breaks. With only one sub on the
bench, we knew we would have to be very strategic and smart with our
bodies. We’d have to play our Best Wildcat Soccer to stay in this game.

The Eagles were fortunate to have close to a half dozen of subs to keep
everyone’s legs fresh, and bodies hydrated. We weren’t concerned in the
bit
though, we have endured tougher times than this. RSD is known to love a
good challenge and that was exactly what they gave us.

Right from the first whistle, we knew we would be in for a barn burner.
Both teams playing aggressive right out of the gate. With both teams
playing at a very intense level with the sun blazing on us, we quickly
found out we’re not invincible. A student had to be taken out due to
struggling with the intense heat. Luckily, our one sub, Isaac Perez held
his own and the battle continued on.

Both teams had some great opportunities to score, but RSD’s shots just
couldn’t get on net. They were either wide left, wide right, or just over
the crossbar, leading to many “ooooohs” and “ahhhhhhs” from the hometown
crowd.  Tantalo and Gentzke lead the Wildcats on these precariously close
calls.

25 minutes in, with our midfield caught on our heels, the Eagles
capitalized and were able to earn the first score of the afternoon. They
took this 1 goal lead into intermission, but RSD was quite content on how
the first half went. We quickly went off the field, filled our water
bottles and found the nearest shaded area where we could regroup,
rehydrate, and restrategize for the next 10 minutes. Even though we were
down a goal, the coaching staff was very proud how the team was playing
and
what we were doing on the field. We knew in time one of our shots would
have to find the back of the net. You can’t miss 25 shots without finding
the back of the net, the Laws of Probability won’t allow it to happen.

The second half, we started to outplay the Eagles. We were on their side
of the field the majority of the second half. We were the more conditioned
team. As time went on, the temps started to dip to give us a new
resurgence
of energy. We were spreading the ball out perfectly. Mr. Thomas Coates was
able to unload a few great shots on net, but we just couldn’t find the
back
of the net, just missing our mark.

Tantalo, Gentzke, and Michalek were also firing shots left and right, but
all were missing our target by a mere hair. Shot after shot, we just
couldn’t connect. So many close calls. We didn’t relent though, we kept
pressuring the Eagles. You could sense the fear in our opponents. One
could
hear the fear in the Eagles Coach’s voice. We were on the cusp of tying
this game. I could feel it!!!! 60 minutes in the game, we had 20
legitimate
shots on net. We knew if we kept pressuring them, one is bound to find the
back of the net, it has to!

The hourglass kept emptying while the scoreboard still displayed “O” for
the visitors. The game plan was working to a “T.” Everyone was playing
great, our passes were crisp, our defense was able to bring the ball
upfield with little to no problem, but we just couldn’t finish our shots.
Time was officially not on our side.

However, with two minutes to go, we had a great drive going down the field
with Tantalo and Coates leading the charge. Could this be it? Was this
going to be the drive that ties us the game. We were in prime position to
tie this game up. Our two captains driving down the field with just a
couple defenders that we knew we could beat. Tantalo dishes a sweet pass
to
Coates, who sneaks by his defender. Coates is just outside the box, and is
approaching the net rapidly.  Coates senses another defender on his heels
and knows the shot has to be taken n-o-w! This was our chance. This was
it.

The shot is off. The shot looks like it’s going to sneak inside the far
post. The goalie makes a move to try to save. Could this be it? Is this
the
shot that would silence the raucous crowd and bring pure jubilation to the
entire team of the Wildcats? Do you believe in miracles?!?!?! As the shot
was making it’s way to the far post, one could notice the goalie wouldn’t
make it in time, but was the shot going to sneak in that far post?!?!?! It
was going to be pretty gosh darn close. Even though it was a missile, it
took an eternity to see the result.

Wide left. wide left…..

Just wide by a smidgen. That shot pretty much summed up this game. So
close, but so far. During the last minute, Eagles brought up the ball
quickly and snuck a meaningless goal in.

It was a heartbreaking game, but nothing to be ashamed of. We played
excellent soccer and the Eagles did as well. It was a clean, hard fought
battle with two excellent officials. We now brush it off, and we focus on
the next game. The season isn’t a sprint, but a marathon. We’re improving
with each game and practice. We need to keep our eyes on the prize and
that’s bringing the ESDAA Trophy back to the 585!

Final score:

Eagles: 2
Wildcats: 0

Saves:

Radez (14)

League record: 1-2
Overall record: 1-3

Next game is Tuesday, September 18th against the top team, Rapids A.

300th career football win delayed

Deaf coach Gary Klingensmith’s quest for his
300th football career coaching win has been
delayed.

His Juniata High School (PA) team was one of
the contenders to make it to the post season
playoffs – but they’re off to a shocking
0-4 start.

Here are the losing scores to date:
0-41
13-20
14-28
20-27 (OT)

In these conference defeats, his team led
at one point in second half but blew each
of them.

he has six regular season games remaining
on the schedule. But playoffs is out of
question since his team is already 0-3
in conference play

random deafsports thoughts

see above story re Klingensmith, is it
bad luck or is it jinx or lesser talented
players losing games in the second half,
preventing the deaf coach from winning
his 300th career game?

His team was rated in the pre-season as one
of these playoff contenders.

Anyway, just one more win!
