Gallaudet football

2017 Gallaudet University football schedule announced

WASHINGTON – The 2017 Gallaudet University football schedule has been
finalized and officially announced by eighth-year head coach Chuck
Goldstein. The schedule features five home games and five road games for
the Bison, who posted a 2-8 overall record and was 1-6 in seven Eastern
Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) games last season

9/2   at Shenandoah •  7:00 PM
9/9   vs. Greensboro • 1:00 PM
9/16  vs. Union •       1:00 PM
9/30  at Mount Ida * • 12:00 PM
10/7  vs. Anna Maria * •     1:00 PM
10/14 at Alfred State * •    1:00 PM
10/21 vs. Husson * •   1:00 PM
10/28 vs. Dean *        12:00 PM
11/4  at Castleton * • 12:00 PM
11/11 at SUNY-Maritime * •   1:00 PM

note:
Shenandoah is an old opponent; Greensboro is a second
time opponent; Union is a first time opponent;
Mount Ida,  Anna Maria, Husson and Castleton
are old conference opponents. Another old conference
opponent is SUNY-Maritime, traditionally the bitterest
conference rival; two new conference opponents
are past junior college teams that have moved
up to 4-year college levels – Alfred State
(not to be confused with Alfred University, both
separate universities two miles apart from each
other and both having nothing to do with each other)
and Dean College.  Bottom line – Gallaudet should
have a much better season this time as compared
to recent seasons. During spring practice one
new quarerback has surfaced – working with the
new offensive coordinator. That quarterback was
said to be outstanding. Should be an interesting season

Fremont sports

It’s a big week!  Today we have our senior night in softball against
Livermore Valley Charter Prep and today will also determine the league
championship because we both are 8-1 and we do not have a league softball
playoffs yet.  Then we host the league baseball playoffs this year and our
first matchup is also against LVCP on Wednesday at 3:30pm.

This Saturday, six Track and Field Athletes – Daijuhnae Williams, Calel
Aramboles, Hannah Wetzel, Leonardo Vergara, Raven Lynch, and Ashley
Locatelli were among our top finishers in the league and they will go to
compete in the NCS Class A Championships in Santa Rosa!  Special
recognition goes to Calel for breaking our school’s discus record of
159’10″ that was held by Tim Siaki for 35 long years and Daijuhnae for
breaking her own school record in triple jump with a 37’4.75″ but don’t be
surprised if more records fall the next few weeks.

Athlete of the Week – HANNAH WETZEL.  Our junior Track and Field Athlete
has consistently been an all-around top performer ever since her career
started.  At the League Championships at Kezar last weekend, she went 2nd
place in the High Jump with a 4’7″, 7th place in the Triple Jump with
32’07.05″, and 8th place in the Long Jump with a 14’05″.  We are very
confident that Hannah will continue working hard in the classroom and
throughout the sectionals as always!

Marie Philip track

In Frederick, Maryland, the Athletic Director of the Maryland School for
the Deaf (MSD), Andy Bonheyo, hosted the Eastern Schools for the Deaf
Athletic Association (ESDAA) track and field tournament. The Athletic
Director invited deaf and hard of hearing student-athletes and coaches to
ESDAA from The American School for the Deaf, Pennsylvania School for the
Deaf (ASD), Cleary School for the Deaf (NY), St Mary’s School for the Deaf
(SMSD), New York School for the Deaf – Fanwood, Rhode School for the Deaf,
New Jersey School for The Deaf , Lexington School for the Deaf (LSD), 
Rochester School for the Deaf, Mill Neck Manor School for the Deaf and our
school. They came together to compete against each other at the same time.

On Friday, 3200 meter run and all the field events began at 6:30 pm after
coaches had a brief discussion about points of emphasis for the 3200 meter
run and field events.  They watched the national anthem by MSD Cadets
Corps. The weather was a little cold with a few brief showers. The triple
jump for girls and boys, shot put for boys and discus for girls events
were resumed on Saturday because it was hard to see the measure of the
throw and jump distances in the evening. The deaf and hard of hearing
student – athletes socialized at a social gathering while the coaches had
discussions about Saturday’s field and running events. The three field
events started at 9 o’clock in the morning.  The hurdle and running events
started at noon till 4 pm on Saturday. The rain stopped after 11 am.

The senior student- athlete, Bryce Callahan received two 6th place
finishes for 200 meter dash and shot put. The other 4 MPS track
individuals were ranked below 6th place.

I thoroughly enjoyed teaching my track and field team with types of
throwing, running skills and drills at practice, and also to watch them
competing with others in the track and field competitions through all the 
spring pre-season and season.

My coach assistant, Sara Patterson is proud that Bryce earned two 6th
place finishes in 200 meter dash and shot put especially since his 1st
year track participation during his last year as a senior.  She made two
comments about the Lady Ghost freshmen, Lily Fruguglietti and the 4
Galloping Ghost athletes for a running relay. Lily did an awesome
performance in 200 meter; Jasper, Christopher, Luke and Bryce did a great
job in the 400 meter relay but they didn’t qualify for the final.

I asked my assistant coach and 4 MPS student-athletes, ” What is your most
positive experience of ESDAA track and field tournament?” I have their
comments here.

Coach assistant: I was impressed with competitors from 12 different
schools for the deaf who competed against each other and the smooth MSD
organization for EDSAA track and field tournament.

Jasper: personal growth about competition and performance skills.

Lily: new experience in ESDAA track and field competition and personal
growth.

Bryce: personal growth on track and field and new experience in the big
track and field competition.

Amogne: Meeting with new friends

I want to thank my assistant coach, Sara Patterson, volunteer assistant
coach, Annie Amato for teaching shot put, discus skills, and drills; and
two subs, Mary Grace and Pam Jones for helping me.

Here are the team champions and the results of MPS individuals.

part of newspaper story

The Greater Cincinnati Golf Association had to squeeze every last ounce of
daylight out of Monday, but it got most of the work done at Maketewah
Country Club for America’s largest U.S. Open local qualifier.

A grand total of 168 entrants was whittled down to 10 qualifiers and an
alternate Monday at Maketewah, with one alternate still to be decided
Tuesday morning via the continuation of a playoff that was suspended after
9 p.m.

The playoff, which produced the 10th and final automatic qualifier and
first alternate just after sunset Monday, was called due to darkness.
Rules officials, patrons and competitors were using cell phone flashlights
to locate balls on fairways and greens at that point.

The qualifiers advance to the sectional qualifying round of the 2017 U.S.
Open.

Before darkness enveloped the competition, players lapped up sunshine as
nine qualifier spots were awarded.

Andy Roberts and Trey Shirley tied for the qualifier victory after posting
three-under 68′s on the day.

Andrew Dorn (two-under 69) was alone in third place while Ben Sattler,
Daniel Stanley, Davis Baxter, Kevin Hall and Austin Bagshaw (Eastern
Kentucky) tied for fourth place (minus-one 70).

Baxter is a University of Cincinnati product.

Hall, deaf since the age of two, is a product of Winton Woods and Ohio
State.

part of newspaper story

There will be a new logo on the Cleveland Cavaliers’ jerseys when they
take the court next season: the Goodyear wingfoot logo

note:

In the late 1910′s and throughout the 1920′s, deaf employees
at Goodyear tire factory had their own semi pro football
team.

The team had an overall winning record and won several
semi pro championships, and had several games with
Akron Pros, an early years NFL team.

Sponsorship? Not one cent from the Goodyear corporate
management, nor praise or acknowledgement from these
executives. In other words, the deaf team was totally
ignored – and there are no markers nor reminders
in the Akron area on the existence of this deaf team.

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to James Bonds,
long time athletic director/football coach at Illinois
School for the Deaf that departed us.

The football stadium is named after him.

http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/myjournalcourier/obituary.aspx?n=james-d-bonds-jim&pid=185331294&fhid=7741

said a past football player:
He was a good coach with discipline; players
learned a lot from him. If the state had the playoff
system in the past, ISD would have been in it.
He is the winningest football coach in school history.

Gallaudet baseball

Gallaudet’s Cameron Upton selected to All-NEAC second team for second
straight year

GANSEVOORT, N.Y. – The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) released
its 2017 baseball all-conference awards on Wednesday and Gallaudet
University sophomore shortstop Cameron Upton (Vicksburg, Miss.) was named
to the all-conference second team for the second consecutive year.

full story at:
http://www.gallaudetathletics.com/sports/bsb/2016-17/releases/allneac

note:
Cameron is tough; he was severely spiked on his ankle on second base in
the first game of season. He tried to play through his injury but couldn’t
and was taken out of the game. He couldn’t play the second game. Yet he
came back, played through these season-long annoying bruises and aches.
And he even served as one of the team pitchers when coach Curtis Pride
needed help on the mound.

USADB national tournament championship game

better late than never since this championship
game took place few weeks ago.

Buzz was that the Austin team would dominate the
tournament. Yet the tournament scores did not
disclose Austin as the name of the team. It
actually was ATX which stood for Austin, Texas.

DeafDigest Sports editor thought ATX was something
like a hot rod automobile club or a motorcycle
club!

Anyway the team, dominated by Macam Macam and
Dwight Brewington reached the championship finals,
facing DWV (District of Columbia, Maryland
and Virginia).

It was a low scoring championship game that DMV
won. Widely touted Macam only scored 12 points
before fouling out.

Why the low score? According to a basketball coach
that watched the championship game, it was a
combination of fatique (playing too many games
within a short time span), high intensity defense
by the winning DWV team, and an off night.

The coach continued – saying that ATX played
too much isolation offense as opposed to team
ball where ball is passed and everyone moves
around. And also several shot clock violations
(earlier round games had no shot clock).

hit two homers but only drove in 17 runs

his poor stats is somewhat surprising because
he was drafted by Atlanta Braves, but chose
to go to college. Major league teams would not
waste their draft choices on prospects with
modest stats? Maybe he did not live up to his
impressive high school stats?

Athlete of the Week – ASHLEY LOCATELLI.  The sophomore infielder filled in
at third base at the softball game last Wednesday and made several good
plays.  Then as one of our few dual-sport athlete, Ashley went with the
track team to the BCL Meet #3 the next day and came in second place in the
discus with a 80’5″ improving her mark by three inches.  Ashley is also
easy going and a pleasant to have on both teams.

Andersen strikes gold: BHS D-man helps USA win gold at World Deaf Championships

Despite a 5-2 loss to Canada earlier in the tournament, a goal by the

Jack DesRoches says playing in recent hockey tournament was ‘very
emotional’

That is representing your country on the international stage. The
17-year-old son of Julie McNeill and John DesRoches of Days Corner did
just that as a member of Team Canada at the 2017 world deaf hockey
championships in Amherst, N.Y., recently.

Brookfield’s Walters wins silver at deaf hockey championship

note:

the first time USA and Canadian national deaf hockey teams faced
each other was at the 1975 Deaflympics in Lake Placid, NY

Canada swept all four games, but two games were close
while two other games were blow outs.

As a young man at that time, DeafDigest Sports editor
managed the USA national deaf hockey team. At that time
without the internet and with practically no contacts
with the hockey network, recruiting was extremely
difficult. The American team had two best deaf players
in the world – Deane Sigler and Leonard Williams that
carried the team on their shoulders. It was not
enough to defeat well-balanced Canadian team.

After the Deaflympics, the editor stepped
down from deaf hockey to pursue other deaf athletic
endeavors.

We came over Rhode island School for the Deaf (RISD) for the 2nd time this
season for track and field events. One of the charter school team in
Providence, teams from American School for the Deaf and NYSD-Fanwood also
came to RISD. It was MPS’ 3rd T&F meet of the season.

Our female junior T&F athlete, Lacey C had her first meet today after
missing past two due to other commitments. She did two long-distance
running events in an effort to build her time improvement.

Our new student, Kade West, who was transferred to here last a few months
ago, begged me to let him try 1600 meter run. He accomplished his goal by
running to the finish line after 4 laps with his positive feeling.

Lily Frugulietti, the lady ghost freshmen, fell and hurt both her knees
with a hard scratch after the starting line of 100m dash. She felt not
ready for 200m dash, but she went ahead to finish racing against opposing
racers positively.

I am very impressive with Luke McBride’s awesome attitude because as his
left shoe was off itself, he kept racing close to the finish line in 800m
event

Please applause our T&F team for their positive effort and attitude
through the running and throwing events.

St Mary’s girls track

The Lady Bisons were forced to dodge rain drops last night on our home
track as we competed in a tri-meet between Global Concepts charter and The
Stanley Falk School.  Despite the weather conditions, the Lady Bisons were
determined to keep up our winning streak and strive for 1st place finishes
and PR’s.  It was the veterans on the team this time around who stepped up
and showed our first year varsity athletes that no matter what the
conditions are, we don’t use that as an excuse to not give our very best. 
Elise Watson grabbed 1st place in both the shot put and discus and Sabina
Bajgai continued her stretch of victories in both the 800m and the 1600m
(1mile). The Lady Bisons finished on top yet again by the score of  SMSD:
45/Global: 18/Falk: 6.  Our next meet is Tuesday, May 9th at home against
O’Hara.
Thanks,
Coach Booke & Coach Daley

Maryland athlete in newspaper story

Prep Report: Perry’s speed serves more than one need

One of Brady Perry’s favorite moments as a Maryland School for the Deaf
baseball player came when he beat out an infield hit.

What was so special about that?

“I hit it to the first baseman,” Perry said. “And I ended up beating
him [to] first base.”

OK, that is an uncommon occurrence. But the first baseman shouldn’t feel
too bad.

The guy who beat him earlier this season has also been beating sprinters.

Perry plays baseball and runs track and field for the Orioles during the
spring.

 Lady Bisons Girls Varsity Track & Field 5/3/2017

The Lady Bisons were looking to carry on the momentum that they started
with from last week’s win into their meet yesterday against our I-90 ESDAA
rivals, the Wildcats from Rochester School for the Deaf.  The weather
outside yesterday was typical of a Buffalo spring day in that it was cold
and windy.  Not exactly ideal conditions to break any records but because
we deal with it for the majority of the year we weren’t going to allow it
to affect our efforts.  That said, once again our Lady Bisons were up to
the challenge as they motivated each other and with each jump, throw, or
lap, they raised the bar for the next girl to try and beat.  Kioney
Alvira- Juardo was a quadruple 1st place winner and Sabina Bajgai was a
triple 1st place winner.  The rest of the girls contributed with many 2nd
and 3rd place finishes that all added up to a Lady Bisons victory over the
Wildcats 65-33.   Our next meet is this at home.

Hanfmann Continues Dream Run At BMW Open In Munich

another deaf tennis pro

Ahead of his presser he also explained that he was born hard of hearing.
“It doesn’t affect my tennis. Sometimes, it is even helpful, as I do
not hear everything what is going on around the court,” the Karlsruhe
native laughed. “I only have to tell it to the umpires, who do not speak
loudly.”
