Model rugby

Model rugby kickoff the season this Friday the 18th at Eleanor
Roosevelt HS.   Last week we had a scrimmage at Landon ending in a
10-10 tie.   Good effort from the boys as most of them are first
timers to rugby…   we have been getting good practice in and look
forward to Friday’s match.

Coach Burke

*Model is entering its third season (second season in 15s) this
Spring.   Rugby is a fast growing sport among youth and high school
across the country.

Elite Deaf Athletes

Matt Hamill will fight Quinton “Rampage” Jackson on May 28th.
Jackson is a Top 10 fighter and probably it is Matt’s biggest
match of his career

Matt was supposed to fight another opponent that he didn’t want
to face, and when he learned that Jackson needed an opponent,
he seized on the opportunity


Deaf Sports Trivia

Q. I coach basketball at a deaf school and I am upset that
DeafDigest Sports does not post game scores that I regularly
post on a basketball-based web site. Why?

A. Going to a basketball-based web site is time consuming.
DeafDigest Sports editor is rushed every day, especially during
the fall and winter seasons, to get daily editions out in
the early afternoon – and therefore has no time to surf these
basketball-based web sites. And besides, copying and pasting
these posted basketball scores is a messy chore that requires
cleaning up.

If you coach basketball and regularly post your scores on a
basketball-based web site, this is fine – as long as you
also email your basketball scores to DeafDigest Sports

Thank you.
