Third quarter gets away from Gallaudet in season opener

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University women’s basketball team dropped its
season opener here Monday night to Goucher College, 62-58, in a
non-conference game in the Field House.

Gallaudet (0-1) jumped out to an early 14-7 lead after the first quarter
of play and carried a 27-19 lead into halftime. The Bison’s largest lead
grew to 12 points late in the second quarter.

Goucher (1-0) changed the game in the third quarter as the Gophers
outscored the Bison, 24-10. The Gophers’ largest lead came in the third
when they led by nine points, 38-29, with 3:28 left.

Goucher scored 23 points off 25 turnovers committed by the Bison. Goucher
was led by Alayna McFadden and Anise Williams who scored 28 and 27 points,
respectively.

The two teams played even in the fourth quarter but Gallaudet couldn’t
regain the lead. The Bison closed the gap to two points, one point and
tied the game at 54-54 with 3:12 left in regulation but that was as close
as they got.

Gallaudet was led by junior guards Jakkisha Smith (Dallas, Texas) and
Emelia Beldon (Frederick, Md.) as the pair scored 13 and 12 points,
respectively. Smith added five rebounds, four steals and two blocks while
Beldon grabbed five boards, passed out three assists and made three
steals. Senior guard Kendall Hudson (Blissfield, Mich.) netted nine
points, seven rebounds and three steals. Freshman guard Rajena Guettler
(Frederick, Md.) added six points, seven rebounds and two steals in the
loss.

BISON TRACKS
Freshman Cassidy Perry (Frederick, Md.) scored nine points, grabbed eight
rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block off the bench

Freshman Sunita Schmidjorg (Austin, Texas) came off the bench to record
nine points, four rebounds, two assists and one steal

The Bison scored 16 second-chance points after they grabbed 18 offensive
rebounds

Gallaudet had 12 fast break points

Gallaudet’s bench scored 18 points

GU led for 22:28 minutes

UP NEXT
Gallaudet is off a week before it will host Trinity Washington University
next Monday, Nov. 18, at 6 p.m.

note:
The hope is that freshman 5’10 Cassidy Perry will get into basketball
shape and help the team a great big deal this season. She was busy
with her volleyball team, which ended its season last week.

She is not the tallest player on the team, as the honor goes to
6 foot freshman Lexi Hill, who logged 14 minutes last night.

tennis interview

Duck-Hee Lee, the deaf player who envies Roger Federer

Duck-Hee Lee, the deaf player who envies Roger Federer

In an interview with ITF, Duck-Hee Lee spoke about how he started playing
tennis. He said: “I was born and raised in Jechon city two hours from
Seoul, the capital city of Korea. I can clearly remember visiting my
middle school tennis court near home at the age of seven, for the first
time.

Seeing this unusual sport with the strange long stick like a butterfly net
which was called a ‘racket’ I felt love at first sight and I cried like a
baby until I got what I wanted. My older cousin was a tennis player.

Of course, I was jealous as a kid. But that motivation actually leads me
to be a tennis player. I even envy Roger Federer, but again, this gives me
the hope and ambition that one day I could also become a big star. I
watched so many tennis games on TV when I was young and I still do this
frequently.

Through doing so I learn a lot and imagine the future. Tennis is my
dream.” “Because I cannot hear, my parents have always given me that extra
love, for sure,” added Lee. “Even now, the help and support from them are
the same as it has been from day one.

Thank you, Mom and Dad. I guess their efforts have really influenced me to
make the right choices and do the right thing. They have had the biggest
impact on my career.” Lee concluded: “I never thought about anything else.

Only tennis. I want to be a tennis star. Being a player on the tour is a
great honour. So, I don’t want to lose this chance. I will work hard and
commit myself solely to tennis. I really want to one day play in a crowded
arena and feel the support and enthusiasm of the fans.”

random deafsports talk

Today’s Washington Post, without mentioning
the proximity of Gallaudet University,
ran a story on American Basketball League’s
Washington Capitols that played at the
Washington Coliseum. That was for one
season in 1961-62.

This is the same arena where Gallaudet
hockey club played their games during
the late sixties/early seventies and
won the conference championship one
season.

This arena is now the REI store.

The American Basketball League
folded but several of their teams
joined the NBA.

GU loses last game of season to Anna Maria

PAXTON, Mass. – The Gallaudet University football team suffered its worst
loss of the 2019 season here Saturday as Anna Maria College rolled to a
53-14 win in the season finale between these two Eastern Collegiate
Football Conference (ECFC) teams at Caparso Field.

The Bison got on the scoreboard midway through the second quarter as GU
marched 65 yards on eight plays, its longest drive in the game, and capped
it with a 2-yard rushing touchdown by sophomore Cassmeir Hutchinson
(Chesapeake, Va.). Hutchinson finished the game with 97 rushing yards on
11 carries. He had a 34-yard rush in that second quarter scoring drive

GU reached double figures when sophomore quarterback Logan Taylor (South
Prince George, Va.) threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to sophomore wide
receiver Mitchell Dolinar (Las Vegas, Nev.) at the 8:02 mark in the fourth
quarter. Sophomore kicker Jack Gray (Atherton, Calif.) made the
extra-point attempt

Redshirt junior linebacker Mason Gooch (Mount Sterling, Ky.) led the Bison
defense with eight tackles (six solo) and 2.5 tackles for a loss of nine
yards

This marked the last game for Gallaudet’s senior class who include Damonte
Bray (Clinton, Md.), Alphonso Johnson III (Warminster, Pa.), Kenneth
Peters (Indianapolis, Ind.), Reid Kelly (De Soto, Kan.), Everett Polzin
(Frederick, Md.), Jaquan Thomas (Midway, Ga.) and Matthew Cracraft

It is always worrisome whether the popularity of
gambling in sports would affect actual athletic
contests.

It happened several times in the past with college
basketball.

In 1951, a Manhattan College player refused to accept
a bribe to throw the game against DePaul.

DePaul, at that time, had a deaf player – Bill
Schyman!  He has recalled an occasion when his
team arrived at the home airport (Chicago)
to face a mob of newspaper reporters, wanting
to know if DePaul has been involved with
point shaving!

Gallaudet’s Hannah Neild selected to CoSIDA’s Academic All-District
Women’s Soccer First Team

WASHINGTON  – The 2019 Academic All-District® Softball Teams, selected by
CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors of America), were released
and Gallaudet University sophomore Hannah Neild (Litchfield, N.H.) was
named to the District 2 first team for Division III. Neild will now be
added to the national ballot for the chance to earn Academic All-America
honors, which will be announced on Tuesday, December 3.

Neild becomes the first CoSIDA Academic All-District® women’s soccer team
honoree to represent Gallaudet, the world’s only university with programs
and services specifically designed to accommodate deaf and hard of hearing
students.

Neild is one of 11 selections on the Division III – District 2 team. Neild
is the lone representative from the District of Columbia and the North
Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC).

Neild, an education major, has the fourth highest GPA (3.98) among
District 2 honorees. Neild was selected to the 2019 NEAC women’s soccer
all-conference second team earlier this week.

This is not Neild’s first appearance on a CoSIDA All-District® Team. In
fact, Neild has earned all-district honors in two other sports including
women’s basketball and softball last season. She ended up earning CoSIDA
Academic All-America® honors in both sports and last March, she was named
CoSIDA Academic All-America® Team Member of the Year for Division III
women’s basketball.

When football team extend their seasons, reaching
deep into the state playoffs, does this affect their
upcoming basketball games?

It happened to the 1960-61 North Carolina School for
the Deaf boys’ basketball team. The 1960 football
team reached all the way to the state championship
finals (before being defeated).

With just two days of basketball practice, the
team had to play its first game of the season.

Football player Ed Gobble (who didn’t play
basketball) said the football team wasn’t
worried about basketball; they were too focused
on the playoff games!

INDIANAPOLIS – Gallaudet University Associate Athletic Director for

He will guide and lead the committee, who helps to administer and conduct
all aspects of the Division III men’s basketball championship, into a
joint championship with Division I and II in Atlanta during the 2020 NCAA

Alabama football

part of newspaper story

There is no tradition in sports with the history of high school football.

In Alabama, the first game confirmed was in 1892 — when the Alabama School
for the Deaf played the Anniston Military Institute and tied 0-0. By the
time the AHSAA formed in 1921, more than 100 high schools in Alabama were
playing football.

A hoax has made its rounds that a British deaf rugby
player has become the head coach of a hearing
national rugby team of Portugal! The deaf man
and the Portugese rugby officers are not too
happy about the hoax.

As far as DeafDigest Sports editor is
concerned it is the first time such a
hoax has taken place between Deaf Sports
and Hearing Sports.

note:
they won two big tournaments, one national and one regional
(National Spike Out Small schools division and ESDAA all-schools
tournament). Defeating bigger schools in ESDAA is the real
big deal! Observers have said Rochester is mighty powerful
team and could have given bigger schools a run for their
money at National Big Schools Spike Out (apart from Small
Schools spike out)

St Mary’s soccer

The Bison’s ended their historical 2019 campaign by winning the Niagara
Frontier Christian Athletic Association(NFCAA) championship yesterday
afternoon against top
seeded Chesterton Academy.  It was the first time that the Bison’s had won
the championship since having entered the league.  For anyone who’s ever
played
competitive sports, you are aware that it’s very difficult to beat a team
3 times in one season.  That’s because you know your opponent’s strengths,
weaknesses, and
tendencies.  Since the Bison’s  had already lost to Chesterton twice in
our head to head match-ups earlier this regular season, the coaching staff
felt it necessary
that we show our opponents a different strategy that they may not be
expecting.  We decided to move rookie back-up goalie Saul Alvira into the
keeper position and
senior veteran Isa Habeeb into the field in an effort to stack our defense
with an extra player to block as many shots as we could.  Once the match
started our plan
was working to perfection.  Throughout the entire 1st half, not only were
we able to successfully limit and/or block a majority of Chesterton’s
shots, but Saul
Alvira stood tall in between the posts and was able to save any ball that
managed to sneak through.  Unfortunately, although Ethan Antone, Farhad
Ghorbani, and
Brady Bartell had some good opportunities to score,  the #1 seed was also
up to the task defensively and stymied the Bison’s attack keeping the
score knotted 0-0 at
halftime.  With the stakes of winning a championship at large, the
intensity of the match began to rise in the second half.  It felt as
though the first team to
score would gain a enormous advantage.  That said, Chesterton academy was
able to punch in the first goal and give them the 1-0 edge. All season
long, the Bison’s
have prided themselves on controlling their emotions in specific game
situations.  We’ve learned to never panic or get too down ourselves if
things momentarily
aren’t going in our favor.  We’ve talked about how an entire season along
with individual games are an emotional roller coaster ride that has its
up’s and down’s.
We’ve always stressed that no matter what, to always “move on” and forget
about what happened previously.  The Bison’s took that message to heart
because right
after Chesterton scored, within 30 seconds, Mobin Abdollahi was able to
march down the field and notch a goal that put us right back in the match.
The game began
to open up a little bit as each team began taking more risks.  At the
halfway point of the 2nd half, Nick Barrus left his defensive position and
joined the rush up
field.  It didn’t take long for Nick to blast a shot from outside the 18
yard line that found its way the back of Chesterton’s net.  Now we were in
the drivers seat
but couldn’t afford to sit back.  Our opponents brought everything they
had at us by moving their entire team up field to pressure our defensive.
It was just a
matter of time before we couldn’t hold them back anymore.  We had some
incredible blocks and saves but with 4 minutes remaining, Chesterton was
finally able to get
the equalizer to put the game at 2-2.  With time dwindling down, it was
clear that our opponents were playing to get this match into overtime and
possibly a
shootout.  However, the Bisons wanted to end this contest right here and
right now.  We went on the attack and attempted to generate as many shots
as we could while
keeping the ball out of our defensive zone.  You could hear the referee
vocally begin his 10 second countdown until the end of regulation.  Was
this game destined
to go to overtime? The referee screamed 10 sec…. 9 sec…… 8sec…… and
before anyone realized it,  Mobin Abdollahi was able to direct a pass at
the perfect angle to
get the shot on goal.   Both sides froze and watched as the ball with
barely enough force trickle over the goal line in slow motion.
Chesterton’s goalie dropped to
his knees in disbelief that the Bison’s scored with 8 seconds remaining.
We milked the clock to end the match and pull off the remarkable upset to
become champs!
The final score was 3-2.  Please wish the Bison’s congrats on a great
finish to a fantastic season.  Congrats to our seniors (Nick Barrus, Isa
Habeeb, Kassim
Kassim, & Ryan Brzezinski) on a wonderful 4 year varsity soccer career.
What a way to cap it off!

Overall Record: 9-5

NFCAA Record: 7-3(League Champions)

ESDAA Record: 2-2

Individual Stats:

Mobin Abdollahi: 2 goals(6th & 7th of the season)

Nick Barrus: 1 goal(15th of the season)

random deafsports thoughts

Are mainstreamed athletes better than deaf school athletes?

No. Some deaf school athletes have earned big time honors.

One was a starter with a NCAA-I football team that played
in a Bowl Game and also played against the nation’s #1
football team.

One was a NCAA-I basketball star and has been enshrined into
his university’s athletic hall of fame.

One was a national (hearing) champion in her event (javelin throw).

One was a national age-group champion in high school hammer throw.

One was a national (hearing) champion in race-walk.

One is a professional basketball player (not NBA).

This list can go on and on, endlessly.

Rochester volleyball

We travelled to Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf for ESDAA
tournament last weekend. We had two games on Friday against St.Mary’s
School for the Deaf and
Marie Phillips School for the Deaf. I decided to keep 6 players on court
instead 7th player to play on front row since I want Emma Kane to play on
front row.
Unfortunately, We were struggling with our second game against MPS. MPS
improved a lot since we played against them at California School for the
Deaf (Riverside) we
lost the first set and won the second set to tie the game since we play 2
sets each game for round-robin. We realized that we felt helpless without
libero. We
decided to put Emma Kane back to Libero to play back row for the rest of
the tournament. We took back to control our games. We won all the games
included the
Championship game!!!
Round-Robin-

VS St.Mary’s
Set 1 25 – 18 W

random deafsports thoughts

Many years ago DeafDigest Sports, as a young man,
was invited to attend a workshop on Alternative
Sports at Nashville, Tennessee.

Deaf people take their deaf sports seriously.

Disabled people take their disabled sports
seriously.

This is a lesson DeafDigest Sports editor
never forgot.

It is great that a disabled student at
Kentucky School for the Deaf is able
to compete at the highest levels possible
in wheelchair basketball. Not only that,
to have another deaf adult with a
disability join wheelchair basketball
and to do well in this sport.

snaps Gallaudet’s three-game winning streak and dashed any hope of making
the conference playoffs. The game also marked senior day for seven
individuals on the Gallaudet squad.

The evenly matched game was scoreless in the first half before GU found
the scoreboard early in the second half. The one-goal lead evaporated in

A lot of distractions!

Joshua Wojnar threw a 15-yard TD pass to Ola Waddell with 10:51 left in
the first quarter, and Nash scored the conversion to put Model ahead, 8-0.

St Mary’s volleyball

The lady bisons took on Marie Phillips in the last round of round robin
play. The girls were a little sluggish from the start and had a hard time
finding a groove
to take on the lady ghosts. There were some quick volleys and a few great
saves made by Cami Cole but the girls ended up falling in two sets 12-25
and 14-25. The
girls go into bracket play in the silver bracket against American School
for the Deaf at 2:30 today.

At 2:30 we took in ASD in a 1 set single elimination start to bracket
play. The girls came in strong with a plan and the determination that
their tournament wasn’t
over yet. Emma Foster made some great digs and saves at the net but the
girls in general meshed really well and pulled off a 25-18 victory. The
girls will take on
OSD again tomorrow at 930 to round out their tournament.

bounced back after an opening-set loss to claim a 20-25, 25-16, 25-21,
25-21 victory.

random deafsports thoughts

There was a story of a high school football team running up
the score 103-0 against another high school in South Dakota
and that the state legislative body is angry about it.

It happened to Eastern North Carolina School for the Deaf
in 1995. Cardinal Gibbons ran up to score to 100-42
against their deaf opponent. They “allowed” the deaf team
to score so that they would get the ball back and then
score again. They just wanted to score 100 points in
a basketball game, oops, a football game. The Gibbons
head coach paid the price. He was forced to resign two
days later after the game took place. The public was
real angry about it.
