Gallaudet’s Jackie Perkins picks up first NEAC Women’s Swimmer of the Week honor

GANSEVOORT, N.Y. – The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) announced

evening with a second-place finish, out of five swimmers, in the 100-yard
freestyle.  The next day against Bridgewater (Va.), Perkins picked up a
pair of second-place finishes in the 100- and 200-yard breaststroke
events. She also competed in the 50-yard freestyle and was a member of the
200-yard freestyle relay team that placed third.

It was a clean sweep for the Gallaudet swimming program as senior Jonathan
Tikhonoff (Folsom, Calif.) was selected as the NEAC Men’s Swimmer of the
Week. He won six individual events and was a member of one first-place
relay last weekend in the final two home meets of his collegiate career.
In a meet against Penn St.-Altoona last Friday, he won the 100-yard
butterfly and 200- and 500-yard freestyle events. The following day in
GU’s win over Bridgewater (Va.), Tikhonoff added three more individual

Illinois football

part of newspaper story

8-man starting to expand

Christian Life was one of four schools that left the NAC for football last
year and paired up with teams in southern Wisconsin to play 8-man
football. Now the Eagles will be in their own in-state conference.
Alden-Hebron athletic director and football coach John Lalor told The
Northwest Herald that former NAC members Alden-Hebron, Christian Life,
Elgin Westminster Christian and Lake Forest Academy, along with Champaign
Judah Christian and Milford, will start the Illinois 8-Man Football
Association. Illinois School for the Deaf is also likely to join the I8FA.

The I8FA, which has its own website at I8FA.org and keeps in contact with
the IHSA, charges schools $250 to join and then $150 per year to remain
members. Lalor hopes to have over 25 teams by 2020. Christian Life coach
Bill Shepard said “this is another exciting piece to the puzzle” and
said the addition of central Illinois programs shows “the growth is
beginning.”

the state when it’s all said and done, as they sit at 7-3 on the season

Dedication

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to Carl Lorello
that departed us.

He was just about the greatest deaf basketball player that many
younger deaf fans never heard of.

He played at New York School for the Deaf (Fanwood) and then
for the New York Golden Tornadoes Athletic Club (GTAC).

He was well known for his line drive jump shots – straight
line towards the basket from the corners.

He retired at the young age of 25 because of an eye injury;
in a fast pitch softball game, he was hit on the eye. Doctors
advised him to stop playing sports or he could risk blindness.

When basketball old timers talk about the good old basketball
days, Lorello’s name always came up as the #1 all-time great.

………………………………………………………..

American basketball

On 1/9, American School for the Deaf Boys and Girls traveled to Marie
Philip School for the Deaf. Playing in the first game back from winter
break the team was sloppy and uncoordinated throughout the game, to make
matters harder the team was without two starters including Andrew Ray
Taylor. Marie Philip played very well and controlled the game throughout.
MPS defeated ASD by a final score of 54-41.

 Boys are now 6-1

 Girls played the second game of the day. The game was closely contested
throughout with MPS leading 11-8 at halftime. ASD, which plays with just
five players, saw Emily P foul out in the second half while ASD was
leading 16-13 with 3 minutes remaining. MPS was able to break through the
diamond defense and ASD was unable to hold the lead once Oriana F. joined
Emily P on the sideline fouling out as well. MPS came away victorious by a
score of 20-16.

 Girls are now 6-4 on the season.

On 1/11 ASD Boys participated in the Clerc Classic at Model Secondary
School for the Deaf.

 ASD drew Indiana to open the tournament. ASD raced out to a 5-0 lead
before Indiana turned up the pressure on the Tigers utilizing their speed.
The score was 33-18 at halftime and Indiana never looked back in the
second half defeating ASD by a score of 66-39. Andrew Ray Taylor had 19
pts, 12 rebs, 7 blocks. Omar Sharif added 8 points and Andrew Parent
chipped in 6 points.

 On 1/12, the Tigers faced CSD-Fremont School for the Deaf. Fremont raced
out to an early lead, overwhelming the Tigers with defense and forcing
multiple turnovers. The score was 41-20 at halftime. The Tigers did
consideribly better in the second half slowing down the tempo but were
unable to make any runs in the game. Tigers lost 55-33.

 Andrew Ray Taylor notched a triple double with 10 pts, 11 rebs, 11
blocks. Robert Milone had 12 points and Dylan Mallach chipped in 5 points.

 On 1/13, the Tigers faced Arizona School for the Deaf. This is the first
basketball meeting between the two programs in their respective histories.
American coach shook up the line up seeking a spark, but it yielded no
results as the Tigers were down 9-4 after the first period. The second
period was face paced at the teams entered halftime with Arizona leading
22-19. Arizona dominated the third period outscoring the Tigers 15-8 in
the period.

The Tigers were down by 10 points with under three minutes to play, were
able to claw back into the game with a flurry of forced turnovers and
breakaways. Andrew Ray Taylor tied the game with 3 second remaining in the
contest at 43 all. In overtime the Tigers energy was clearly gone as
Arizona dominated the overtime period to win. Final score was 54-45

 Andrew Ray Taylor made All Tournament team.

Statistics not yet official – Andrew Ray Taylor’s 11 block game on Friday
is a Clerc Classic record if holds, breaking the previous record of 7 held
by Teddy Eveland of MSSD in 2006. The team’s 14 blocks, if hold, would set
a new record of blocks in a game, current record is 10 by MSSD in 2006.

 Andrew Ray’s 24 blocks through the tournament, if hold, would break Teddy
Eveland’s record of 18 set in 2006. The team notched 31 blocks
(unofficial) through the weekend, if holds, would set a new record,
breaking MSSD’s record of 27, set in 2006.

Boys record drops to 6-4 on the season.

Marie Philip boys’ basketball

Last Friday MPS traveled to Boston University Academy to play against the
mighty terriers. We didn’t have full starters to start the game. Most of
our young players had to step up their game. We didn’t have good start and
BUA led 30-20 in halftime. Then we worked up with better second half and
gave us to back in the game with tied 38-38. BUA put two big baskets that
put the game away from us. We missed some opportunity to back into the
game. BUA escaped with 6 for 6 on free throws at the last minutes. BUA 54
MPS  44.

Junior Kacey Monahan led the game with 23 points, 9 rebounds and 4 blocks.

Saturday game: MPS 44 Lexington 33

MPS didn’t have good start with our confidence shots. We missed many shots
for last of seven minutes then we finally scored. Good thing that our
defense kept the game close and build up with our offense at the late of
first half. MPS 16 Lex 12. Onto the second half, we got off with better
start and led all the way till the end of the game. Solid defense and
patience on our offense really paid off this game. Lexington did play
their best defense against us and definitely improved from last year. 
Senior Dylan Christoffels had his best game for the season of 2018 with 12
points, 18 rebounds and 9 assists. One assist away from triple and double
for Dylan.

Records as of now 7-5. MBIL 2-2

Next opponents this week.

Gallaudet men’s basketball

Andy Cruz nets his 1,000th career point as Bison knock off Cazenovia

WASHINGTON – Senior forward Andy Cruz (Bronx, N.Y.) converted a
three-point play, late in Sunday’s North Eastern Athletic Conference
(NEAC) men’s basketball game, to earn his 1,000th career point at
Gallaudet University. Cruz’s milestone helped to propel the Bison to a
78-67 win over Cazenovia College in the Field House on Padden Court.

Cruz made a lay-up at the 4:17 mark in the second half when he was fouled
and was sent to the free throw line. Cruz converted the free-throw attempt
to earn his 20th point in the game and his 1,000th in four years at GU.
After a brief moment to recognize the accomplishment, the Bison went on to
score 12 of the final 21 points to close out the game.

The duo of Cruz and sophomore guard Noah Valencia (Riverside, Calif.)
combined to score 42 points. Valencia made four three-pointers en route to
his game-high 22 points while Cruz completed the double-double with 13
rebounds.

Gallaudet played a strong first half and took a 43-36 lead into halftime.
The physical and tough game slugged on in the second half where GU
outscored Cazenovia by four points, 35-31.

Freshman guard Preston Kelly (Fishers, Ind.) poured in 13 points, seven
rebounds and two steals while junior guard Jawaun Jackson (Downey, Calif.)
added 11 points in the win.

editor’s note:
DeafDigest Sports editor watched the game, and it was heartwarming
to win a tough game over Cazenovia to snap a long losings streak.
Cazenovia would not gave up and even rallied to lead the game,
however, briefly – but Gallaudet would not lose control of the game.
Keep in mind, Gallaudet has lost key starters and key subs (two of
them 6’7 tall) from last season.

……………………………………………………………

Gallaudet women’s basketball

Bison rebound with a victory over Cazenovia, 86-71

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University women’s basketball team left it all
on the court with a 86-71 victory over Cazenovia College in a North
Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) game here Sunday afternoon in the Field
House on Padden Court.

Junior Hannah Neild (Litchfield, N.H.) scored a new career-high of 33
points for the Bison (6-9, 4-3 NEAC) and reached double figures with 11
rebounds. Kelsey Hudson (Blissfield, Mich.) was the second Bison to record
a double-double as she tallied 12 points and grabbed a season-high 15
rebounds. The senior forward made a clutch three-pointer at the buzzer to
send GU into the locker room with a 39-29 lead at the half.

The Wildcats (4-8, 1-5 NEAC) would not go easy in the second half.
Cazenovia made a run in the third quarter to cut the margin to two points,
45-43, at the 5:48 mark. That was as close as Cazenovia got as Gallaudet
scored 10 points, in just over a minute, to put them up by double figures
once more.

GU entered the fourth quarter with an 11-point lead, 64-55, and held on
for the 15-point victory.

Freshman guard Emelia Beldon (Frederick, Md.) recorded a career-high nine
assists to go with a game-high four steals, eight points and seven
rebounds. Junior guard Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.) scored 11 points and
passed five assists while junior forward Kelli Barnes (Cliffside, N.C.)
tallied the second most points GU with a season-high 16 points.

editor’s note:
DeafDigest Sports editor watched the game, and realized that Hannah
Neild has this soft shooting touch; she doesn’t rush her shots, just
makes sure the ball softly reaches the net. Keep in mind she was
a starter past two seasons with Merrimack College, a NCAA-II
program, leading her team in most minutes spent on the floor.
It is extremely rare for a NCAA-II starter to transfer to a
NCAA-III program. Merrimack’s loss is Gallaudet’s gain! Gallaudet,
over the years has had a number of NCAA-II players transfer to
play for the Bison, but they were subs at their hearing colleges.

Faces in the Crowd: Shane Van Boening

He’s been playing professionally since he was 20 years old and earned
his first U.S. Open at just 24 years old. You’ll hear him referred to in
pool rooms around the world as the “South Dakota Kid.”

Even as one of the best billiards players in the world, he doesn’t get
complacent; he still practices for hours on end and says the game is 75
percent mental.

He is hearing impaired, allowing him to tune everyone out and focus on
the game.

He is jet setting to competitively play pool around the world.

Seniors shine in final home meet as Gallaudet wins 103-97

WASHINGTON – Gallaudet University won half of its events here Saturday to
defeat Bridgewater (Va.) College, 103-97, in a non-conference meet in the
Field House pool on senior day.

Senior Jonathan Tikhonoff (Folsom, Calif.) played a major role in the win
as he won three individual events and one relay. Tikhonoff set a new
personal record in the 200-yard butterfly with a first-place time of
2:13.50. He was also first to touch the wall in the 200-yard breaststroke
(2:29.84) and the 100-yard freestyle (55.45). He was also a member of the
first-place 200-yard medley relay team that won in 1:59.93. Tikhonoff was
joined by fellow senior David Bruno (Patchogue, N.Y.) along with freshman
Benjamin Sealts (Ottawa, Ohio) and junior Mackenzie Shannon (Winnetka,
Ill.).

Sealts improved on his Gallaudet record time in the 200-yard backstroke as
he shaved down his old time of 1:58.41 to 1:58.11 to win the event. The
freshman was also first in the 100-yard backstroke (55.27) and the
200-yard IM (2:04.36).

During the meet’s first break, Gallaudet head coach Larry Curran
recognized his seniors Tikhonoff, Bruno and Julian Simons (Austin, Texas)
with senior plaques.

Bruno and Simons finished second and third, respectively, in the 500- and
1,000-yard freestyle events to pick-up crucial team points. Bruno posted
times of 7:33.18 and 16:00.99 while Simons clocked in at 9:15.25 and
18:35.45.

Gallaudet women’s swimming

Bison cap regular-season home schedule with meet against Bridgewater (Va.)

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University women’s swimming and diving program
lost its final home meet of the 2017-18 season Saturday afternoon in the
Field House pool to Bridgewater (Va.) College, 187-65. The visiting Eagles
(7-1) won 13 of the 14 events over the Bison (4-6).

Junior Alisia Metante (Pleasanton, Calif.) won the 100-yard freestyle with
a time of one minute, 5.51 seconds, to lead Gallaudet. In her other two
individual events, Metante set personal record times with third-place
finishes in the 50-yard freestyle (29.48) and 500-yard freestyle
(7:19.23).

Sophomore Jackie Perkins (Hampton, Va.) was second in the 100- and
200-yard breaststroke events with times of 1:17.41 and 3:02.84,
respectively. Fellow sophomore Jessica Monroe (Senoia, Ga.) placed second
in the 200-yard freestyle (2:30.08) and third in the 100-yard butterfly
(1:21.79).

During the first break of the meet, Gallaudet paid tribute to its senior
class. Head Coach Larry Curran honored senior Faye Frez-Albrecht (Canton,
Conn.) and student-assistant Chelsea Newberry for their dedication and
service to the program. Thanks to Frez-Albrecht’s courage she turned a
negative situation, being disqualified at the NEAC championships two years
ago, and made a positive change to improve equal access for all swimmers.
Last year, Gallaudet was able to use lights at the starting blocks to help
with the start of events and a powerpoint to breakdown the communication
barriers. These elements were used at the 2017 NEAC championships and last
summer Frez-Albrecht, Curran and Gallaudet garnered national media
attention for these ground-breaking changes to improve collegiate
swimming.

Gallaudet men’s basketball

Valencia’s career best 32 not enough against Wells

WASHINGTON – Gallaudet University caught a major break Saturday against
Wells College, in a cross-division North Eastern Athletic Conference
(NEAC) showdown, but the Bison didn’t capitalize on the opportunity in an
85-75 loss in the Field House on Padden Court.

Wells’ Rich Ross, the reigning NEAC Player of the Year, picked up two
quick fouls in less than five minutes to begin the game as GU led 8-5.
Ross was sent to the bench but returned three minutes later to make a
three-pointer and give the Express their second lead, 14-11. He then
picked up a third foul at the 10:51 mark and sat for the remainder of the
first half.

Gallaudet (2-11, 2-4 NEAC) had the chance to take over the game without
Ross in the way but didn’t have an answer for the hot-shooting Express
(4-10, 2-3 NEAC).

Wells built a 10-point lead, 22-12, before Gallaudet began to chip away at
the margin. Freshman Shawn Daniels (Lakeland, Fla.) came off the bench and
made his first collegiate three-pointer which was quickly followed by a
three by sophomore guard Noah Valencia (Riverside, Calif.), who finished
with a career-high 32 points. Valencia made six three-pointers and went
10-for-11 from the free throw line.

The two squads continued to trade three-point shots as Valencia and
freshman Preston Kelly (Fishers, Ind.) cut the Wells lead down to one.
Senior forward Andy Cruz (Bronx, N.Y.) made a jumper to give GU a 30-29
lead with 3:51 left before halftime. This was GU’s first lead in over
eight minutes.

Wells responded with a 10-0 run to close out the half and take a 39-30
lead into the locker rooms. Gallaudet missed its final six shots from the
field and missed two free-throw attempts in the final minutes of play.

In the second half, GU went on an 11-2 run to knot the game at 41. This
was as close as Gallaudet got to regaining the lead. The Bison kept the
game close but the outside shooting by the Express made them hard to
defend. Ross picked up his fourth foul at the 12:04 mark and sat for over
six minutes before playing the final 5:25 of the game as he finished with
12 points.

Wells made 15 three-pointers and shot 51.9 percent (28-for-54) from the
field and 45.5 percent (15-for-33) from three-point range.

Cruz finished with 17 points, eight rebounds, four assists, two blocks and
two steals. The senior is now within 20 points of 1,000 career points as a
Bison. Junior guard Jawaun Jackson (Downey, Calif.) finished with 17
points as he made half of his shots and passed out four assists.

Gallaudet women’s basketball

Neild nets a career-high 30 in tough loss to Wells

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University women’s basketball team played hard
in a 67-64 loss to Wells College in a North Eastern Atlantic Conference
(NEAC) game here Saturday in the Field House on Padden Court.

Junior Hannah Neild (Litchfield, N.H.) scored a career-high 30 points for
the Bison as she made four three-pointers and went 10 of 12 from the free
throw line. Neild had the opportunity to tie the game in the waning
seconds but her bid for a fifth three-pointer went unfilled. Neild’s miss
turned into two points when junior guard Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.) made
a lay-up.

Wells (3-10, 2-3 NEAC) called a quick timeout with 14 seconds left as it
clung to a one-point lead, 65-64.

GU had two fouls to give before Shelby Medovich (12 points, nine rebounds)
toed the free throw line for two attempts, which she made, with nine ticks
left on the clock.

The Bison (5-9, 3-3 NEAC) made one final attempt to send the game into
overtime when freshman guard Emelia Beldon (Frederick, Md.) heaved a
three-point shot attempt, that missed, as time expired.

Gallaudet and Wells played close throughout as neither team led by more
than seven points.

The Express came out of the gates on fire and built a quick 7-0 lead, its
largest of the game, before Gallaudet regrouped and eventually took an
18-14 lead when the first quarter concluded.

GU took its largest lead of the game at the 9:42 mark on a Shysh made
jumper as the Bison went up 20-14. Wells responded with a 14-3 run over
the next four minutes to take a 28-23 lead. The Express led 34-32 at the
half.

Beldon finished the game with 10 points, seven rebounds and passed out a
game best eight assists. Shysh was the third Bison to reach double figures
as she tallied 10 points and grabbed five rebounds. Senior forward Kelsey
Hudson (Blissfield, Mich.) grabbed a team-high nine rebounds to go with
nine points.

RISD Boys Basketball Recaps

1/10 @ Rocky Hill School

Our Roosters basketball team traveled to Rocky Hill School on Wednesday,
January 10th to kick off 2018. There was a lot of rust on our team as we
missed a lot of practices due to the Holidays Break as well as the
Northeastern storm that hit us last week. The rust showed itself in the
first half as Rocky Hill was able to jump out to a 21-6 halftime lead.

Our Roosters were able to battle back and showed signs of improvement in
the second half as we were able to score more points despite battling
fatigue and only having two substitute players. Rocky Hill won the game
47-22.

RISD -  6   16  – 22
RHS -  21  26  – 47

RISD
Mario P. – 13 Points
Jayden E. – 6 Points
Timothy J. – 3 Points

1/11 vs. Blackstone Valley Prep

This was the second leg of back-to-back games, so our coaches were looking
for signs of improvement and building on from the Rocky Hill game.
Blackstone Valley Prep was able to grab an early lead, but some of their
key players got into foul trouble as our Roosters started to turn up the
pressure on both ends of the court. We were able to eat away into the lead
as close as two points before BVP went on a 6-0 run to end the first half
with a 29-21 lead.

Our Roosters struggled a little in the second half with our shots as well
as fatigue. BVP would use all of their players and everybody saw valuable
playing time as BVP won by the final score of 49-31.

BVP -    29   20  – 49
RISD -   21  10  – 31

RISD
Jayden E. – 10 Points

RISD Girls Basketball Recap

1/11 vs. Blackstone Valley Prep

Our Lady Roosters finally played our first game of the 2018 calendar year
in a home game against Blackstone Valley Prep. After a lot of snow and
missed practice days, this would be a good way for our team to get back
into basketball form. Both teams started out the game rusty and the game
remained scoreless until BVP finally scored the first points of the game
more than six minutes into the game.

BVP would grab a 10-4 halftime lead — but our Lady Roosters would not
give up. They were able to come back and make the game exciting as the
game score was at one point BVP leading 15-13, but our team ran out of gas
and couldn’t make any of our shots and BVP made two more baskets near the
end of the game to win 19-13.

BVP -   10   9  – 19

V Girls
NMSD – 12
Cimarron – 49

Our first game of 2018 was a long trip to Cimarron. The day before, we had
a very productive practice where players were very aggressive which made
both coaches very eager for the game the next day. Unfortunately, we
seemed to have left our competitive fire at home. We finished the first
half scoring only 2 points to Cimarron’s 21. We finally came out with
better passion with a 9 point quarter, but Cimarron continued their hot
shooting performance with a 20 point quarter. We finished the game with a
12 point performance. As coaches, we were very disappointed in the team’s
effort, however, this is a learning experience that the players will not
want to repeat again. Our next game will be on January 17th with Vaughn on
our home court.

NMSD 40
Cimarron 69

Last night, our Roadrunners were leading all the way until the last 3
minutes of the 3rd quarter, when Junior Deven Thompson had foul trouble. 
We did not do our job for the rest of the game.    Deven Thompson made 14
points and Senior Jonathan Garcia scored 12 points.

The lady Bisons traveled to RSD yesterday for their second game of the
season. Though they played well together, they couldn’t seem to keep up
with the lady wildcats. It was an aggressive game on both sides which led
to some foul trouble and injuries late in the game. The girls pulled
through in the end but couldn’t make it a win. Kioney Alvira-Juardo lead
the team earning a double double with 17 points and 16 rebounds. Kearah
Kelly also made her first shot of the season adding two points to our
total. After a nice break where we will try to regroup and work on some
weak points we will be ready to take on Central Baptist again. Hopefully
we will have better luck on their court.

Kevin Hall, the tour’s first deaf golfer, is not giving up on his chase

part of web story

Hall has spent 14 years chasing it: membership on the PGA Tour. He’s
enjoyed a handful of starts on tour during his career, but has mostly
toiled in the sport’s minors. Not the Web.com, Latinoamérica or Mackenzie
circuits, mind you, where decent money can be had. Hall has ventured in
the wilderness, those provincial tours where you carry your own bag and
are chased off the course by the men’s 45-and-older Thursday beer league.
It’s not a glamorous life, one that chews and spits out the most skilled
of players. That’s includes Hall, who once captured the Big Ten
Championship by 11 shots at Ohio State.

Gallaudet women’s basketball

GU tripped up on the road to begin new year

LANCASTER, Pa. – A strong start by Gallaudet University was erased by
Lancaster Bible College in the second quarter here Tuesday night in a
North Eastern Athletic (NEAC) women’s basketball game at the Horst
Athletic Center.

Gallaudet (5-8, 3-2 NEAC) took a 13-7 lead and later increased it to 16-9
before Lancaster Bible (7-7, 5-0 NEAC) responded. The Chargers trimmed the
lead to three, 18-15, after the first 10 minutes of play.

GU built its lead to 22-18 to start the second quarter before Lancaster
Bible went on a 15-0 run and took a 37-27 lead into halftime.

The Bison were outscored 39-26 in the second half including the decisive
fourth quarter where LBC scored 19 points to GU’s nine.

Junior guard Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.) scored a season-high 18 points
as she made 7 of 13 shots from the field. Freshman Emelia Beldon
(Frederick, Md.) added 14 points while junior Hannah Neild (Litchfield,
N.H.) had an off night. Neild only made 2 of 10 shots from the field as
she was held to a career low eight points.

Gallaudet men’s basketball

Bison drop first game of new year to Lancaster Bible

LANCASTER, Pa. – Gallaudet University men’s basketball began the new year
here Tuesday night in a key North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC)
contest against Lancaster Bible College at the Horst Athletic Center. The
Bison came up short and lost the close affair, 78-71.

Gallaudet (2-10, 2-3 NEAC) kept the game close, throughout, but never
regained the lead after it took a 23-20 lead on a made three-pointer by
sophomore guard Noah Valencia (Riverside, Calif.) at the 6:41 mark in the
first half.

Lancaster Bible (9-4, 5-0 NEAC) closed out the first 20 minutes of the
game on a 16-7 run as the host led 36-30 at intermission.

In the second half, Gallaudet kept Lancaster Bible at bay as the lead
never got out-of-reach. The Bison pulled to within three, 62-59, on a made
three-pointer by freshman Preston Kelly (Fishers, Ind.) with 6:06 left in
regulation.

GU never was able to get the lead back.

Valencia made one of his eight shots on the night with 3:55 left to cut
the Charger lead back to three, 68-65, after it jumped up to seven.

LBC closed things out by making free throws down the stretch.

Valencia finished with a game-high 25 points as he made 8 of 12 shots from
the floor including going 4-for-7 from three-point range. Senior forward
Andy Cruz (Bronx, N.Y.) added 15 points while junior Jawaun Jackson
(Downey, Calif.) scored 10.

GU shot 56.3 percent from the field (27 of 48) and three-point range (9 of
16) in the game.

Atlanta Area

AASD, this past weekend the basketball teams went to Kentucky School for
the Deaf and they had a BLAST even though it was FREEZING. At one point,
it was 0 degrees! Both basketball teams were not used to playing more than
one games so they were tired. Thankfully, they had one day of rest
yesterday because they needed it from playing hard and lack of sleep :)  
We played against KSD and GSD more than once because Illinois School for
the Deaf were unable to come due to their weather conditions.

Highlights:

Marie Philip boys’ basketball

After a long layover from our xmas break and the snowstorm, ASD and MPS
boys looked rusty on playing basketball but in the second half they played
better. We (MPS) had only three practice days in three weeks. It does not
look good to go but we had to do.

Results:  MPS 54  ASD 41

MPS handed ASD’ first losses of the season. We got off with good start but
later in the minutes of first half we didn’t score much. In halftime we
led 24-14. Onto the second half we maintain to control whole the game and
was up by 18 at most then ASD got back to close game. Junior, Kacey
Monahan led the team scoring with 23 points, 15 rebounds and 5 blocks. 8th
grader, Kyle Florio put his best game of the season with 19 points, 4
rebounds and 3 assists. He scored 3 out of 4 shots on trey area. Senior
Dylan Christoffels didn’t have his best shooting day but he contributed to
different role of the game by 10 rebounds, 9 assists and 2 steals.

Our next opponents for this week are: Friday at BUA @ 5pm

                                                                    
Saturday at MPS vs. Lexington School for the Deaf at 330pm.

St Mary’s girls basketball

The lady Bisons finally had their first game of the season today against
Central Baptist. After several cancelations these girls were a little
nervous but ready to see what they could do. They came out strong in the
1st quarter and kept it close throughout the first half, But after dealing
with strong pressure from the other team they quickly fell behind. Kioney
Alvira-Juardo lead the team both as the point guard and as our leading
scorer with a total of 24 points. Elise Watson was a major help both
offensively and defensively and Emma Foster came out strong as an
aggressive (but controlled) defender. Shout out to Tatyana Bean for making
her first points of the season with a far outside shot late in the 3rd
quarter. Though the score says they lost, still congratulate these girls.
They’ve really learned to play as a team and no one left the court as
discouraged as they could have. We’ll have another chance to see what we
can do this Thursday in Rochester for the I-90 classic. Hopefully we can
learn from this game and go in strong Thursday.

Game: SMSD vs Central Baptist 32:61

0-1 record

…………………………………………………..

St Mary’s boys basketball

The Bisons finally took to the court after a long layoff.  Due to severe
winter weather, the last 4 games scheduled were cancelled.  The Bison
missed games against Michigan, Rome, Fanwood and Pennsylvania.  The Bisons
traveled to Falk in what proved to be another physical match up against
the Falcons.  It was a fast paced game for 32 minutes with many lead
changes.  Kassim Kassim finished with 2 points and continued to create
chaos on defense.  Nick Barrus led all scorers with 14 points and 
orchestrated the offense.  Christian Lawrence had 11 points and 12
rebounds along with Dalton Planty who scored 10 points and had 6 rebounds. 
Isa Habeeb finished with 6 points and 5 boards.  Ryan Brzezinski played
well defensively and used his size down low to help us win the rebound
battle.  The Bisons played a very balanced game and showed composure late
in the game as they finished with the win…43-36.

Our next game is Thursday in Rochester as we take on the Wildcats in the
I-90 Classic.
Record 2 wins -0 losses
Coach LeRoy and Coach Carmody

Game: St. Marys Deaf vs Falk JV 43:36

Texas boys’ basketball

Our last game before Clerc Classic did not go well. We looked ahead, I
thought. We scored zero in the first quarter against John Paul II’s
tenacious defense.

We trailed 20-3 in late second quarter. We executed better and forced OT
at 38 apiece, but we lost 44-40 in overtime.

Hopefully, it is a lesson learned for our boys before we travel to MSSD
and play Fremont on Thursday night at 7 pm.

Gallaudet University wins Helmet Bowl national championship

WASHINGTON – Gallaudet University can call itself national champions after
the school came out on top in the Helmet Bowl.

The Bison rallied from behind to defeat the San Diego State Aztecs in the
championship, which was determined by online voting. The Washington D.C.
university won by a vote of 17,657 to 15,521.

The Helmet Bowl competition was put on by Helmet Tracker, which searches
for new uses of technology to help equipment managers do their jobs more
effectively.

“This is one of the greatest comebacks ever! said Gallaudet Athletic
Director Michael Weinstock. “We owe our gratitude to the Gallaudet
University community, alumni, friends and supporters because without them
this would not of been possible. We are proud to win the first Helmet Bowl
national championship!”

Gallaudet will receive a Helmet Bowl national championship trophy and a
banner from Helmet Tracker, which will be displayed in Gallaudet’s Field
House this spring.

a taekwondo barter agreement

A hearing mother of a young deaf daughter wanted
to learn taekwondo. Taking taekwondo lessons
cost money. The mother really couldn’t afford
to pay for these lessons. The taekwondo school
owner knew no ASL. A barter agreement was made -
the mother would teach the taekwondo owner
ASL, and the owner would give the deaf girl
these free lessons! The owner said it paid off
because it attracted more deaf students that
wanted to learn taekwondo!

note:

exatly the same thing with Ed Hottle, the past
football coach at Gallaudet. He knew no ASL;
the players mocked the ooach’s efforts to learn
ASL. He approached the players with a suggestion -
“you teach me ASL; I teach you how to play good
football”

It paid off as Hottle coached Gallaudet to an
undefeated season!
