Gallaudet baseball

GU sweeps Cazenovia to earn two crucial NEAC victories

WASHINGTON – Two much-needed North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC)
victories was exactly what Gallaudet University baseball needed. The Bison
swept a conference series with Cazenovia College here on an unseasonably
cold afternoon at Hoy Field.

GU won its first game at home in over two months with a 6-1 victory in the
first game as the Bison batted first and served as the away team. This
doubleheader was originally scheduled to be played at Cazenovia but was
moved to the nation’s capital after rain/snow showers deemed the Wildcats’
field unplayable. In the second game, Gallaudet trailed 6-2 going into the
eighth inning but rallied to scored the next five runs to win 7-6 in 10
innings.

Gallaudet (6-28-1, 3-11 NEAC) catapulted up in the NEAC standings to
seventh place after today’s wins moved them in front of Cazenovia (8-19,
2-12 NEAC) and Wells College (12-18, 2-12 NEAC) with a week left in the
regular season. GU is still fighting for a NEAC playoff berth and will
play four conference games next weekend. If GU was able to pick up four
additional NEAC wins it would place the buff and blue in the mix.

GU will have to go up against SUNY Poly (10-15, 4-5 NEAC) and SUNY
Cobleskill (2-23, 1-9 NEAC), a first-year program, on the road in New York
next weekend.

Game 1: Gallaudet 6, Cazenovia 1
Freshman pitcher Ethan Denson (Huffman, Texas) threw his best game of the
season in the first game. Denson (2-7) went the distance and allowed one
unearned run on four hits, three walks and struck out four. Denson earned
his second win of the year, he last won on Opening Day where he threw four
scoreless innings to begin the season.

Game 2: Gallaudet 7, Cazenovia 6 (F/10)
Gallaudet trailed by four runs late into Sunday’s second game of the NEAC
doubleheader against Cazenovia but rallied to score the game’s final five
runs to win 7-6 in 10 innings.

UP NEXT
The Gallaudet baseball team is slated to travel back to New York next
weekend for two conference doubleheaders. GU begins the trip on Saturday,
May 5, against SUNY Poly.

 Iowa Track Update

Very busy week with three meets.  We started the week on Monday at Essex
in
a coed meet with schools our size, smaller schools in Class 1A, including
one school from Missouri.  We only took one girl to this meet, yet we had
a
full squad for the boys.  The standings provided by Essex only recognized
the top 6 in each event, as they were scoring 6 places.  Our medalists and
scoring results:

Boys:
Henry Zlando-100 M Dash-11.71-2nd place

Zlando)-2:01.80-5th place

We scored 22 points as a team at this meet.  The final team standings were
not provided by Essex High School.  It’s our best meet so far this year.

Next meet was the coed meet at Griswold on Thursday.  A larger meet,
mostly
1A schools with a couple of 2A schools mixed in.  This meet scored eight

(earning 2 points for the team)

The boys scored 40 points total, ending up in 5th place.

The varsity season is concluded, however we are going to decide in the
next day or two whether to take Henry Zlando to the district meet on May 10th
in the 100 and 400 meter dashes.  His times have been rating him right around
the top 10-15.  We will announce in the next couple of days if he will go
or not.

more on Teanna Sieben, deaf goalie in lacrosse

part of newspaper story

Local lacrosse star Teanna Sieben joins Rush for regular season finale

A local lacrosse star was part of the Saskatchewan Rush for their regular
season finale last night.

Goaltender Teanna Sieben was signed by the Rush for the team’s regular
season finale last night against the Calgary Roughnecks. Sieben
participated in the morning shoot-around and warm-ups prior to ball drop.
She will also be introduced in the Rush starting lineup.

Sieben said she was excited to be joining the Rush.

Rush players and coaches were thrilled to have Sieben in the crease and
expected her to provide an extra spark heading into the game.

The Rush went on to win the game 11-10, and finish the regular season with
a 14-4 record, the best in the league.

note:
the story did not say if she actually played in the game and only
participated in pre-game warm up sessions. The assumption is that
she was a back up goalie and was not used during the game

DeafDigest Sports, few days ago, ran another story on her.

FA Cup soccer (Great Britain)

A tradition in Great Britain is the FA Cup soccer tournament.

All soccer teams – pros, amateurs, semi pros are invited to take
part in the open tournament.

Nearly 800 teams take part.

One of the teams is Reading FC Deaf. They lost 2-1 to
Westcliff United (hearing) team and is eliminated.
     
It is not known, however, if a deaf team ever won one of these
earlier round FA Cup games in the past. Most deaf teams
do not take part in the open tournament, knowing they could
be blown out and be humiliated. They stay within their
own deaf leagues.
