a dedication

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.

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.

in West Hartford, Conn. Cheshire Academy, Kingswood Oxford school (KOS),
Watkinson School, RISD and  ASD participated in the track meet.

KOS paused the running events and held a brief ceremony for their senior
recognition The hearing and deaf competitors began competing with us in
the track after the senior day ceremony.

Bryce accepted to do 1500 Meter run. He felt like squeezing in his chest
after 2 laps, but he positively desired to complete the race. Please give
a pat on his back for not giving up his 1600 meter run.

St Mary’s girls track

The Lady Bisons had their win streak come to an end yesterday at the hand
of the Cardinal O’Hara Hawks by the score of 51-27. Despite the loss, we
did have some bright spots which included Elise Watson continuing to break
her personal records (PR) in both shot put and discus for the 4th
consecutive meet and Cameron Cole edging out the majority of the triple
jump field with her own PR.  We have one more meet at home this Thursday
before we head off to Maryland this weekend. If you haven’t come out to
see our Lady Bisons in action, please try and make it in an effort to
motivate and support our team.
Thanks,
Coach Booke & Coach Daley

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).
