the Eagles shut out Upper Lake, 63-0, and Millennium-Tracy,

Special teams, turnovers hurt: Calistoga hurt itself in the

Bright spots: Against Swett, Jonah Pelter had two tackles
for loss while Alejandro Sanchez and Carlos Rios each had
fumble recoveries.

Calistoga head coach Paul Harrell says: “CSD is amazing. They
are all tied together with each other. They play hard. They

clean it up if we intend to stand with them next week.
We have a lot to fix.”


Indiana volleyball

Indiana Deaf def. University 25-23, 25-13, 25-17.
Notable: Raelyn Fuechtmann (ID) 19 kills



Learning Center volleyball

DATE: Wednesday September 17, 2014
SCORE: Landmark Academy J.V. 3, The Learning Center for the Deaf 0 (25-8,
25-17, 25-20)

The TLC Lady Ghosts had their home opener today against the Landmark
Academy Vikings.  Despite the score line, it was a very fun match for us.

Landmark had consistent passing and teamwork for most of the 1st set while
we struggled to find our rhythm.  Good serving from Kayla LoBrutto (So.)
and Daria Monahan (So.) gave us confidence boosts.  However, Landmark’s
captain (#9) was too good and our receiving couldn’t counter her serving.
The Vikings scored the last six points of the set to win 25-8.

TLC built upon positives from the 1st set and had a much better 2nd set.
After another slow start, Manju Canuel (Sr.) took control to lead the team
to three consecutive service points.  It was 16-13 in Landmark’s favor at
the time, and the Vikings regrouped.  The bottom half of their rotation
helped Landmark to pull away for a 25-17 victory.

The Lady Ghosts continued to grow as a team in the 3rd set.  They found
consistency in serving and defense to tie Landmark 6-6.  Landmark’s
captain, who is apparently the Vikings’ best server as well, reeled off 5
unanswered serve points and Landmark surged ahead 12-6.  However, we
refused to call time-out and kept trying.  Naralee Perez (8th) found
consistency in her serving and we got a few more points.  Landmark got the
ball back and for 12 straight serves each team turned the ball over to the
other and it went from 18-12 to 23-18.  All the excitement wore us out and
a serve error allowed Landmark to complete a 3-0 sweep with a 25-20 win.

Emily Zeringue – 1 Ace, 1 Kill, 5 Receptions, and 2 Assists
Sabrina Rodrigues – 1 Ace, 2 Kills, and 10 Receptions
Manju Canuel – 1 Ace, 1 Kill, 6 Receptions
Kayla LoBrutto – 3 Aces, 1 Kill, and 3 Receptions
Naralee Perez – 1 Ace, 1 Kill, and 1 Reception
Daria Monahan – 2 Aces and 2 Kills

The Lady Ghosts will have a scrimmage at the Rhode Island School for the
Deaf at 1 P.M. on Saturday September 20.  Our next match will be a rematch
against Landmark J.V. at Prides Crossing.  It is scheduled for Monday
September 22 at 4:15 P.M.


Learning Center soccer

TLC played first home game against Commonweath School and we lost a good
game, 5-3. We had several chances to make the game interested but missed
the opportunties to score goals.

TLC defense had a strong first half to keep Commonwealth scoreless. In the
second half Commonwealth found its rhythms by scoring 3 goals while we
accidentally scored two goals for them.

Steven Corbett (Sr.) had two goals while Iromilson “RO” Centeio (Sr.) had
a goal for TLC.  Goalkeeper James Knoll made 9 saves.

Next game: Homecoming @ Rhode Island for the Deaf – 9/20 Saturday
Record: 0-2


Lexington soccer

Wednesday, September 17th

Lexington 2 Grace School 6

East Elmhurst, N.Y.- Grace School was unable to get a field reserved for this
game so the game was shifted over to Lexington’s field instead of rescheduling.
The team was finally in our competive level but we could not capitalize on some
of the great shot attempts we had. We missed five great shots that would have been
a score only if the players focused on their shot more carefully. However, we were
down 1 to 2 at halftime then in 2nd have three goals scored on our errors. Lexington
broke the game open by scoring the goal first. It was an uphill battle when Grace School
reached the 4 to 1 lead. We scored before they scored two more goals.

Goals: Tanvir Chowdhury, Samer Abulaya
Assists: Dilshane Seneviratne, Jaime Pavia
Saves: Jia-Cheng Huang (14)

Season record: 0-3-0 (PSAA: 0-3-0)

Next game: Martin Luther at Lexington on Thursday, September 18th at 3:45 PM.

finally had enough players to play their season opener,
which went to the Lady Eagles, 25-21, 25-13, 25-15, in
Larsen Gymnasium. NMSD had been struggling with a small
roster, and a couple of injuries impacted its ability
to start the season earlier.

.We have three returning players and three new,
inexperienced players who have never touched a volleyball
before August 15,. NMSD head coach Amanda Lujan said.

Returnee Amberley Luna had six aces, six kills and two
assists, while sophomore Janelle Miller added five kills,
a block and two assists for the Lady Roadrunners.

MS Volleyball

Finally!   Middle School Volleyball team had their
first game yesterday.  We had two completely new
players that joined our team basically on Monday
before the game.

Even with the last minute changes each girl
contributed point to our games.  We were able to
improve our score from the first and second games.  
It.s good to have our first game out of the way,
our jitters are calmed, and we know what to expect
and what improve on for our next game.  
Hope to see y.all there!
