Seniors take center stage on Sunday against Penn College

WASHINGTON – It was a memorable day for Gallaudet University’s four
seniors on the baseball team here Sunday at Hoy Field. The Bison came up
short against Penn College in a North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC)
doubleheader as they lost 7-6 in extra innings in the first game and fell
12-2 in the second game.

Gallaudet (3-27-1, 0-10 NEAC) led 5-2 and 6-3 before Penn College (15-10,
9-1 NEAC) came back to score four unanswered runs to win the first game in
eight innings.

The day was dedicated to the senior class and their families. Prior to the
start of the game, the players played catch with their parents and family
members in the outfield under the warm sun. The four families and players
were recognized before the start of the game as well by coach Curtis Pride
and the rest of the Bison squad. In the games, all four players
contributed to the Bison, who almost knocked off one of the top teams in
the conference.

Fremont sports

The Eagles just returned from Hoy Classic in Riverside.  The softball team
finished in 4th place and the baseball team finished in 5th.  At times,
both teams went on an offensive tear but also struggled with inexperience
and control on the mound.  However, their hustle and sportsmanship was
noted all weekend and the future is bright for both teams! 
Congratulations to our two athletes for being selected on the Hoy Classic
All-Tournament Team – Marcela Brentham and Donovan Holmes!

This week will be a lighter week which will be a good rest for our
athletes who has been busy with Culinary Bowl, Spring Break, International
Studies, Academic Bowl, Berg Seeger Classic, and Hoy Classic this month!

Athlete of the Week: ESTHER BISER – Our sophomore all-around player has
been noticed for her passion of the game and getting the team together. 
She also has an important role to produce for the team, batting third in
the order, and playing third base.  Esther had numerous timely RBI’s
during the Hoy Classic.  Additionally, she has had excellent attitude and
is one of the few players with 100% participation this season which is
always difficult during the spring season.

Athlete of the Week: JADEN READER – Our freshmen shortstop/pitcher has
been on an absolute tear this month.  Jaden almost produces every game
with his bat and he had 6 RBI’s during the tournament.  Although Jaden is
a converted pitcher, he’s quickly became our ace and he earned the Hoy win
against MSSD.  Additionally, the team loves his attitude on and off the
field!

pro basketball player couldn’t play at national deaf tournament

Michael Lizarraga, who plays professionally in Mexico,
signed up to play for one of the deaf teams at the
national deaf basketball tournament that took place
recently.

The old coach told him he can go and play.

The old coach was fired.

A new coach who replaced him told him he cannot
go and play.

As a result, a very diappointed Lizarraga had to stay
back in Mexico and be with his pro team!
