Rich Pelletier is retiring next month; replacing him as the new
athletic director is Nicole Laszczynski.

Eastern North Carolina Track

Alfonza Robinson & Jeremiah Deans, each qualified for the 1A NCHSAA
Regionals. Alfonza qualified 11th in the 100m. At regionals, he finished
12th with a time of 11.92. He had a tough start.  Jeremiah qualified 2nd
in the Shot Put and won the regionals with a throw of 43’10″. This past
weekend, he was seeded 8th going into the NCHSAA State Championships. On
Sunday, his best throw was 44’9.5″. He finished 4th in the state and
medaled. This is the highest an ENCSD athlete had finished the NCHSAA
Championships since Donnell Finnamon(Girls shot Put) finished 2nd in 1997.
Jeremiah accomplished this while dealing with the sudden death of his
throwing coach. Tom Watson, an ENCSD track coach, had a tremendous impact
on Jeremiah’s progress. He got Jeremiah to change his technique, work on
explosion and really buy in. It’s been bitter sweet. We are super proud of
both of these athletes.

random deafsports thoughts

When a highly recruited deaf athlete gets NCAA-I
scholarship offers, what would he look for?

1. promise of playing time

or

2. best college major suited to his interests and needs

or

3. the university with the better interpreting
services

Dwight Collins, an outstanding high school
running back, in the nineties, was
pursued by McNeese State and University
of Central Florida. He visited both
campuses and chatted with deaf students.
He was told that McNeese State did not
have a good interpreting program whereas
University of Central Florida did.

He chose UCF. He played quite a lot as
a freshman, and was given attention in
the newspapers. The coach that recruited
him was fired (see yesterday’s random
thoughts). The new coach didn’t like
Dwight. As a result, he played very
little for the remaining three seasons
of his career!

college deaf golfer

Rylee Reinertson

senior

men’s golf

University of Oklahoma

his senior season was a flop, as compared to peaking
at the top of his game last season as a junior.

As a result, he has been left off the regular line up of
top five golfers, being selected as the team’s #1
alternate
