GU drops two on the road at Penn St.-Abington

ABINGTON, Pa. – The Gallaudet University softball team traveled north to
face Penn St.-Abington in a North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC)
doubleheader on Wednesday and lost 7-5 and 10-1 in five innings.

Gallaudet (11-14, 3-5 NEAC) held a 5-3 lead in the first game before the
Nittany Lions (5-10) scored twice in the bottom of the fifth and sixth to
capture the win. Penn St.-Abington ran away with the second game as they
scored runs in all four innings to end the game early due to the
eight-run, five-inning mercy rule.

Rhode Island track

On Thursday, April 12th – Rhode Island School for the Deaf hosted their
first meet of the season as a total of five schools participated in the
competition. Fortunately the overcast clouds held up long enough for us to
complete the meet before the rain started!

Despite the crazy weather over the last month, which led to a lot of
practices indoors — our students had some strong performances in their
first taste of competition this season and accomplished personal bests,
which our coaches were very proud of.

Western Pennsylvania boys’ basketball

part of newspaper story

Redeemer Lutheran boys play at national tournament

year.

The Redeemer Rams boys middle school basketball team completed a
successful season, emerging undefeated as first-time conference champions.

The team was invited to a national tournament in Valparaiso, Ind., hosted
by the Lutheran Basketball Association of America.

The team did not place in the national tournament, but it was the learning
experience that counted most.

Despite a 10-0 record, the team’s season did not start as the Rams hoped.

Their first game was a scrimmage against the Western Pennsylvania School
for the Deaf. Loewe said as he walked into their gym, he distinctly
remembered seeing a banner that read “2016 National Champions.”

Needless to say, the Rams lost by 20 points.

scheduling mishap

There was a story of a hearing soccer team in
Turkey getting their next game dates mixed up
and as a result, did not show up on the
scheduled soocer match. It cost them the
league championship.

Can’t happen to the deaf? Wrong! It happened
to Gallaudet women’s soccer team about 15 years
ago. The team did not show up for the first
round of conference playoffs thinking the
game was on a different date!
