no DeafDigest Sports editions, July 7th & 8th

DeafDigest Sports editor was on a 2-week vacation;
the goal was to distribute DeafDigest Sports each
day during the vacation. It was not possible
on July 7th and 8th due to hectic travel plans.

DeafDigest Sports editor is home now and
distribution resumes on a regular basis.

Happy DeafSports reading during the slow
summer months when schools and colleges
are closed for the summer and deafsports
news hard to find!

Thank you for bearing with DeafDigest Sports
editor

U-21 score

USA won 103-24 over Israel

……………………………………………………………

random deafsports thoughts

just wish the U-21 committee would post results that is easy
to copy and paste on DeafDigest Sports editions. The
copying is impossible because of the way these scores
are formatted on these tweets! Keying in the score
by score results is time consuming, and DeafDigest
Sports has a daily noon deadline to distribute daily
editions

Some tweets can be copied and pasted; some can’t

in fact, the only tweet was this:
@INTechWarriors Indiana Tech forward Jason Boateng put in a solid 13
minutes of work vs. Israel at the 2018 U21 World Deaf Basketball
Championships on Saturday. Boateng is on the United States’ squad, which
is competing in the Washington, D.C. tournament through July 14.

USA won 103-24 over Israel

Deaf basketball brings national event to Coral Springs

The Coral Springs Gymnasium recently served as the host site for the recent
National Deaf Basketball Organization (NDBO) tournament.

It marked the first time that the 36-team event, which included two squads
from Puerto Rico, took place in northwest Broward County.

In the 10th annual attraction, each team played a minimum of three games
within brackets for seeding, and then the top two teams squared off for
the title.

Along with Florida and Puerto Rico, there were teams from Georgia, New
York, North Carolina, Texas, Missouri, Michigan and Washington, D.C. There
were a total of 61 games contested, including two All-Star showcases.

The Lady Liberty (New York) rallied from a 36-33 halftime deficit to pull
out a 52-48 win over the Southeast Divastars (Florida) in the Women’s
Division.

note:
this newspaper story seems incomplete

NDBO? USADB? Both are separate deaf basketball organizations
both having nothing to do with each other

15-year old deaf swimmer

part of newspaper story

A 15-year-old St Albans swimmer is set to represent Great Britain at the
European Deaf Championships.

Lucy Jordan-Caws, a pupil at St Albans Girls’ School who has been deaf
since birth, has been called up to represent Britain at the championships
in Lublin, Poland.

After moving to St Albans at the age of three, Lucy started swimming
lessons at Wesminster Lodge and at the age of seven moved to the Verulam
Amateur Swimming Club and moved up the ranks under the guidance of coach
Zofia Kozien.

Lucy, who is in Year 10, also attends early morning swimming classes at
Hatfield Swimming Club, waking up at 4.30am three times a week to train
for two hours before school. She travels around the county to attend deaf
swimming events and training camps, and came second at the ‘100
Butterfly’ at the Great Britain Deaf Swimming Nationals, missing out on
the gold by 0.3 seconds. She also holds the GB deaf swimming records for
age 15 in three different lengths.

Following the European championships, Lucy is hoping to resume her
training schedule to qualify for the World Deaf Swimming Championships in
Brazil in August 2019.

Deaf Youth Games

part of newspaper story

World Deaf Youth games will take part in 2019 in Armenia. First time
it is taking place.

note:
this is all DeafDigest Sports knows about it, in fact it is the
first he has heard about it.

wrong football tweet

Fun fact:
football huddles were invented by the deaf community so hearing
people couldn’t see their signs during timeouts

note:
deaf community did not invent the huddle. It was Paul Hubbard, a
deaf Gallaudet football player that invented it in 1894
