Gallaudet mourns the passing of Donald A. Padden, ’45

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University community mourns the passing of
Donald A. Padden, ’45, on Wednesday morning, February 19 in Frederick,
Maryland. Don was 98 years old. He had been a part of the Gallaudet
community for nearly 80 years, as a student, an athlete, a teacher, a
coach, a revered mentor and father figure to generations of students, an
alumni association officer, and an elder statesman of the Gallaudet and
Deaf communities.

Don was the last surviving member of the Five Iron Men, the 1942-1943
men’s basketball team that won the Mason-Dixon conference championship.
The team had a losing record during the regular season, and was seeded
last of eight teams in the conference tournament. Gallaudet won three
straight games to win the tournament, with all five team members playing
every minute of every game.

Upon graduation in 1945, Don joined the Gallaudet faculty. He stayed for
42 years, with two stints as men’s basketball coach. He also expanded the
intramural program and directed it for ten years, and served on the design
committee for the Field House. He was inducted into the Gallaudet
Athletics Hall of Fame in 1995, and the Field House gymnasium floor was
named in his honor in 2017.

Don was married for 72 years to Agnes Minor Padden, ’47, who also taught
at Gallaudet for nearly four decades. Together, the Paddens were one of
the most recognizable and iconic couples in our history, giving countless
hours to the university and the community. For 28 years, they wrote and
edited the Mileposts column in the Gallaudet Alumni Newsletter. Don was
treasurer of the Gallaudet University Alumni Association from 1982 to
1989, and chaired the GUAA centennial reunion in 1989.

Agnes Padden passed away on October 3, 2019.

Note: He is a Gallaudet-lifer, simply put! A great man!

Time runs out on Bison comeback against Fighting Tigers

COBLESKILL, N.Y. – The Gallaudet University women’s basketball team lost
83-77 on the road here Friday night to SUNY Cobleskill in a North Eastern
Athletic Conference (NEAC) game.

Gallaudet (9-15, 7-8 NEAC) trailed for the majority of the game against
SUNY Cobleskill (11-13, 6-9 NEAC) in the Iorio Gymnasium. The Fighting
Tigers outscored the Bison 21-16 in the opening quarter and took a 45-37
lead into halftime.

The Bison made things interesting in the fourth quarter when GU came back
from 12 points down. The Bison cut the Fighting Tigers’ lead to one,
75-74, on a Kendall Hudson (Blissfield, Mich.) layup at the 3:08 mark. The
game was stuck at 79-77 for over a minute as the game headed towards the
end of regulation. GU missed two shots during that stretch, which would’ve
tied the game.

SUNY Cobleskill scored its final four points at the free throw line in the
closing seconds to secure the win.

See above story – wheelchair basketball. DeafDigest Sports editor,
as a young man years ago, watched wheelchair basketball with a
deaf sports-loving friend, at Queens College (NY).

It is rough. It is not a sport for the faint-hearted. It is great
to see Kerwin Haake, still attending high school, hold his
own against the nation’s best wheelchair players – many of them
military vets that were wounded in recent wars.

We had our last game of the regular season last night versus ECA. We lost with a
final score of 50-21. We tried to keep up with them using our strong defense,
but some of their players were able to beat our defense and maintained their
lead throughout the game. By halftime we had a score of 11-21, but we did not
play as well during the last two quarters.  Our top scorers of tonight include
Victoria Baca with 11 points, 3 steals and 2 assists and Mya Malone with 8
points and 15 rebounds. We want to thank the NSMD community for supporting us
throughout the regular season. We look forward to regrouping and having practice

Basketball All-Americans?

Yes.

DeafDigest Sports editor waits for school’s
basketball seasons to end before extending
an invitation to submit nominations.

Same rule as always in the past – schools
that do not send in scores on a regular
basis will not be invited. It does not matter
if the school has a 25-0 record or a 0-25
record,  or won a deaf regional championship or
is considered to be among the best in the
nation; if that school does not turn in basketball
scores on a regular basis, it remains uninvited.

DeafDigest Sports editor has gotten responses
from these non-invited schools, saying  “go look
us up on our web site”  OR “go look us up
on maxpreps”

Sorry, these schools MUST turn in their
scores, without saying – go to maxpreps
or go to web site.

So far, DeafDigest Sports has been getting
nominations from invited schools.

Thank you for understanding.

random DeafSports thoughts

Don Padden has departed us.

He was a firm believer in the level playing field
in sports.

He just hated it when a team was much too strong
over a weaker team in any sport. And he has took
action into his hands, removing top players from
the stronger team to make even things out for the
weaker team.

This was in reference to Gallaudet intramural
sports.

Riverside girls’ basketball

In their first playoff action of the year against Faith Baptist of Canoga
Park, the girls’ varsity team got off to a slow start in the first
quarter, 15-4, but
found their momentum in the second quarter to bring themselves within 10
points by halftime, at 24-14.   The Cubs owned the third quarter
outscoring FB 15 to 8, but
could not overcome their 4th quarter mistakes and lost to FB by the score
of 45-36, to end their season.

Overall, the girls did a terrific job this season, posting a 17-7 season
record, which is an improvement from 14-10 last year.   The good news is
that we have
everyone returning next year.   I want to thank Norman Weiss, Ida Dotson
and Peter Trzesniewski for their time, excellent coaching, and patience
with the girls.
We look forward to the off season work with the girls and with
improvement on their skills and basketball IQ, the future looks bright for
the 2020-2021 Cubs.

Onward to next year!

Clerc as nation’s toughest high school

Yes, DeafDigest Sports thinks so!

We’ve had teams that “don’t do well”
at Clerc, yet come home and whip all
these hearing teams in their own

Something deaf basketball fans could

take top honors

COBLESKILL, N.Y. – The Gallaudet University men’s swimming and diving
program celebrated its fourth North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC)
championship here Sunday evening in the Bouck Hall Natatorium on the SUNY
Cobleskill campus.

This is Gallaudet’s first NEAC championship since 2014. GU also won
back-to-back titles in 2011 and 2012.

The Bison team was announced as the winner during the awards ceremony and
accepted the team trophy, took some photos and then jumped into the pool,
one more time, to celebrate the win.

GU coasted to victory on Sunday as it finished with 615 team points to
pull away from the host Fighting Tigers of SUNY Cobleskill, who finished a
distant second with 478 points. Wells College (84 team points) and
Cazenovia College (37) battled it out for third place as both teams had
two swimmers each at the meet.

Junior Ben Sealts (Ottawa, Ohio) was named 2020 NEAC Men’s Swimmer of the
Year as he finished the championship weekend with three individual wins
and one relay victory. This is the third straight year Sealts has been
named NEAC Men’s Swimmer of the Year.

the girls down and we started to play wildcat basketball! We had a balanced
offense with McKenna Girod scoring 8 points, 11 rebounds, Mariana Menzynski had
7 points and Julia Ott added 6 to bring the championship trophy back to RSD.

Jodie Ounsley: England rugby player risking hearing loss to reach the
Olympics

“They say not to play impact sports. If the magnet in my head gets
dislodged I might not be able to hear again.”

Jodie Ounsley is profoundly deaf. She can hear with a cochlear implant,
but runs the risk of losing that ability by playing rugby.

Jodie Ounsley also dreams of the Olympics. And she refuses to let her
hearing stop her getting there.

The 19-year-old became the first deaf female rugby player to be selected
for an international sevens squad and won her first England cap in October
2019.

Now, she is hoping to secure a place in the Great Britain squad that will
compete at the Tokyo Games this summer.

Will Palmer (18) from Hampton was playing for Stamford in an FA Youth Cup
match against Lincoln United last September when he claimed offensive
language referring to his deafness was used against him.

He also alleged that the same player later mocked him during the match.

Lincoln suspended their player while an investigation was carried out, and
he has since been banned for seven matches by the Lincolnshire FA.

Season Preview – Strong team chemistry ready to propel Bison in 2020

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University baseball team is healthy and ready
to embrace the 2020 season after suffering five season-ending injuries
last season. The Bison return the majority of its team from last year as
the team chemistry is high heading into the new season.

GU head coach Curtis Pride, now in his 12th season, is excited with what
he has seen thus far in the preseason training camp. With a lot of
talented veterans returning combined with the team’s positive attitude and
motivation, Gallaudet should have a strong chance to move up the North
Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) standings this season.

“This year’s team chemistry is the best I have ever had,” said Pride. “We
just want to compete, taking this season one game at a time. Our goal is
to make the NEAC tournament and just continue to improve.”

Gallaudet swim teams ready for 2020 NEAC championships at SUNY Cobleskill this weekend

COBLESKILL, N.Y. – The Gallaudet men’s and women’s swimming & diving teams will
head north this weekend for the 2020 North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC)
championships (Feb. 14-16) at SUNY Cobleskill in the Bouck Hall Natatorium.

The preliminary rounds will begin each day at 10 a.m., followed by the
championship round races starting at 6 p.m. except on Sunday, Feb. 16, when the
championship rounds will begin at 4:45 p.m. The three-day championships will
also be livestreamed and can be viewed at the following link at the bottom of
this release.

GU’s women’s swimming and diving team finished 0-13 overall and 0-4 in NEAC
competition this year. Last year, the Bison finished the three-day championship
meet in fifth place after accumulating 213 points in 20 events. Cazenovia won
its fifth consecutive NEAC championship in 2019 with 595 points. Wells College
took second place with 476 points while Cedar Crest College took third (470) and
Cobleskill took fourth (229).

Gallaudet’s men’s swimming and diving team went 2-8 overall and 2-1 in NEAC
competition during the 2019-20 regular season. At the NEAC championships in 2019
the Bison finished in third place with a total of 244 points in 20 events. SUNY
Cobleskill took home first place with 358 points, the third consecutive title
for the Fighting Tigers.

“No matter how far you have to go, push on until you finish the race. Mental
endurance is tougher than physical endurance but I have confidence in our
swimmers that they will be successful this weekend with some PRs (personal
records) accomplished,” said Gallaudet assistant coach Chelsea Newberry, when
asked about the upcoming championships.

Gallaudet last won a NEAC swimming championship in 2014 when the Bison men’s
team won their third title. GU men’s titles earned came in 2010-11, 2011-12 and
2013-14. The Gallaudet women’s team has one NEAC title (2010-11).

note:
let us just hope that Ben Sealts, just about the top swimmer
in the conference, will pick up more honors during the conference
meet.  He is the best Gallaudet swimmer in the past 5-6 seasons.

Gallaudet upsets top team in NEAC on the road Wednesday night

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. – Gallaudet University stepped off its Academy Bus on fire
here Wednesday night as the Bison men’s basketball team took down Penn St.
Harrisburg, the top team in the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC),
with a 67-62 victory.

Gallaudet (5-16, 5-7 NEAC) shot 43.8 percent from the field and made 7 of
12 (58.3 percent) shots from 3-point range in the first 20 minutes of the
game against Penn St. Harrisburg (14-7, 10-2 NEAC).

Senior guard Noah Valencia (Riverside, Calif.) made 16 of his game-high 23
points in the first half as he sank 4 of 5 shots from 3-point range. The
Bison trailed early before they went on a 29-4 run to take a 29-8 lead
with 6:43 left before halftime.

GU went into halftime up, 39-21.

In the second half, the buff and blue stretched its lead to 22 points in
the first 10 minutes. The Lions went on their own 21-5 run to close the
gap to 55-49 with six minutes left in regulation.

Gallaudet was able to keep Penn St. Harrisburg at an arm’s length away
down the stretch to secure the key South Division win to keep GU’s playoff
hopes alive.

Senior center Steve Valencia-Biskupiak (Riverside, Calif.) scored 10 of
his 12 points in the first half and grabbed six rebounds. Junior guard
Preston Kelly (Fishers, Ind.) finished with 11 points, eight assists,
seven rebounds and one steal.

Before a packed Larson Gym crowd, the fans had an entertaining night watching
sophomore Bruce Brewer, Junior have a fabulous performance in scoring his
1,000th career point, record a triple double with 16 points, 11 rebounds and 10
assists along with 5 steals despite being constantly double-teamed and make the
winning shot at the buzzer to help the boys defeat a hard-charging Jemez Valley
team in an important district game, 54-52.  The night was not without its
travails as the Roadrunners allowed the Warriors to creep back into the game
after sprinting to an 18 point lead, giving them the chance to tie the game at
52-all before having the game ball with 12 seconds left – setting up Brewer’s
drive through the Warriors defense to make an elbow shot that gave the
Roadrunners their 15th victory.  Senior Luis Villalobos, battling foul trouble,
was able to contribute 22 hard earned points with 16 rebounds and 4 blocks.
Freshman Kieran Vollmar chipped in with 16 points.  The boys will again face
Jemez Valley tonight at Larson Gym in the second end of a home and home
schedule.

The team is now 15-5.

random DeafSports thoughts

cannot help but think of St Mary’s
6-man football program during the
late 1940’s when comparing it with
Fremont’s switch to 8-man.

St Mary’s produced powerful 6-man
teams. They were so strong that
no 6-man teams in the Western
New York/Buffalo area were willing
to schedule them again.

There were two options –
to move up to 11-man football
(no 8-man football in the area)

or

to drop football.

St Mary’s did not have enough roster
numbers to field 11-man teams and
so it was not an option.

This is the reason why St Mary’s
dropped its successful, but shortlived
football program!

Interestingly enough, New York State
(Rome) had their own 6-man football
teams. For some reason both schools
never played each other in a game.

Minnesota 38

The Roadrunners won an opening game over the Trojans with everyone contributing
in all areas.  The team was led by sophomore point guard Bruce Brewer’s 22
points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists. Senior Luis Villalobos had a solid 18 points
and 8 rebounds in limited playing time. Freshman post Kieran Vollmar had 6
points and 7 rebounds.  8th grade Adrien Ercolino had 8 points and 4 steals.
Freshman John Hernandez made a basket and both of his free throws.

The team is now 12-4.

NMSD 69

Iowa 32

In a game where the boys started slow against the much taller and athletic
Iowans, the second quarter was where they turned the “on” switch and began
running the fast break efficiently.  Brewer had a complete all around game with
29 points, 6 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 steals.  Villalobos was dominant all over
the court, making 33 points inside and outside and snatching 17 rebounds. In the
closing seconds of the 4th quarter, freshman Jose Miranda, two months from
picking up a basketball for the first time ever, made his first career basket on
a nice three foot jumper from the low block, setting a mini-celebration off for
the boys as he has worked hard to improve his skills all winter and headed to
the Great Plains championship game for the third year in a row.

The team is now 13-4.

Oklahoma 53

Roadrunners 52

This game was an example of a team “crashing the wall” at the most inappropriate
time.  Already short-handed with a very thin and inexperienced 3 man bench, the
team got off slowly, didn’t showcase their customary speed and pretty much was
sluggish after a long day’s wait for the 8:30p tip off.

Oklahoma jumped out to a 7-0 lead before our first basket and the boys slowly
fought their way back into the game. In the second quarter, the boys
semi-exploded for a continuous stream of points which saw us enter halftime with
a 3 point lead, 29-26.  This was despite Oklahoma physically manhandling our
team continuously and a case of us being unable to actually have the ball go
through the basket on shots we normally make. In the third quarter, our lead
remained sizeable, however, foul calls went against our senior post/wing
Villalobos which saw him sit almost all of the third quarter and in which
Oklahoma use their size advantage along with their junior star guard, Isiah
Holt’s hot hand to stay close to us.  We were also unable to capitalize on the
Indians’ constant turnovers, which were aplenty. The fourth quarter saw a game
of defensive nip and tuck as both teams played great defense with a very low
scoring output.  The balls simply didn’t drop for either team on the offensive
end.  The referees called Villalobos for his fifth foul with two minutes left
and us up by five. We also missed six free throws and an ensuing possession off
an Oklahoma technical foul within those last minutes. Holt, who finished with 38
for the Indians, snatched an free-throw miss on our end and dribbled down court,
heavily guarded to make a nice pass inside to a post player who scored, putting
them up 53-52 with seven seconds left.  On the ensuing possession, Brewer made a
full court dash to attempt a layup, probably a step early, which then
agonizingly rimmed inside and out with a second left.  Oklahoma rebounded and
the game clock simply ran out of time for our boys.

Brewer finished with 21 points, 4 rebounds, 8 assists and 3 steals. Villalobos
has 19 points and 15 rebounds despite battling foul trouble and sitting on the
bench. Vollmar had 12 points and 3 rebounds. The team made 9 of 19 free throw
attempts.  Brewer was the tournament’s top vote getting All-Star and Villalobos
was also chosen to the All-Star team. The team also finished 2nd in the
free-throw team competition. We brought the 2nd place trophy home and our return
also begins a four day stretch of basketball games, starting tonight with a home
game against Walatowa.

The Team is 13-5.

Walatowa 35

In a tight district game, the Boys were able to sprint ahead in the final four
minutes at home.  Weary from a long weekend, the boys started out lethargic and
without senior post Luis Villalobos, who was resting for the night due to
injuries.  Thanks to our tight defense and heady play by our players, we were
able to claim victory number 14.

Bruce Brewer Jr had 36 points, 8 rebounds and 5 steals with Kieran Vollmar
chipping in 6 points, 9 rebounds and two steals. Adrien Ercolino ran the team
from the point guard spot and had a steady night with 2 points, 3 assists and a
steal. Jesus Rios had 2 points, 5 rebounds and a pair of steals.

The team is now 14-5.

Our varsity basketball girls played a great game last night versus Walatowa
Charter School. They were pretty tired from the long weekend filled with great
games. We started with a leading score of 9-2. We ended the first half with
18-17. We lost our lead during third quarter with some turnovers. The finals
core is 33-50. Our top scorers include Mya Malone with 13 points and 18
rebounds, Stacy Vargas with 9 points, and Victoria Baca with 7 points. We look
forward to a rematch next week.

against Rhode Island School for the Deaf. The Bisons came out quick and didn’t
look back from there and beat Rhode Island 61-23 to advance to the championship

the team with another near triple double of 19 points, 13 rebounds and 6

game against Rochester on Sunday. Go Bisons!

On Sunday the Bisons took on Rochester for the championship game of the

made the trip to Rochester. The Bisons were looking for some payback and that’s
exactly what they achieved. The team beat Rochester 59-52 and were crowned
champions of the ESDAA tournament. The team stuck together and worked for what
they wanted, to bring back a championship to St. Mary’s. Nick Barrus led the
Bisons with 19 points, Ryan Brzezisnki had 13 points, Kassim Kassim 12 points,

random DeafSports thoughts

Fremont JV football team against Washington
varsity team?

Unusual?

No, way back in the 1950’s the
South Carolina varsity team played
against North Carolina’s JV team.

And Washington football has an interesting
history. In 1961 their varsity team fought
LaCenter HS JV team to a tie. The angry
Washington varsity then challenged LaCenter
varsity to a game on an open date.

And yes, Washington won!

So, are we saying that LaCenter JV
is better than LaCenter varsity???????
