ESDAA 2018 Volleyball – MPS team report.

FRIDAY 10/26 – Pool A Round Robin

St. Mary’s – won 25-14

NYSD – lost 25-24

Delaware – won 25-16

Lexington – won 25-17

Record: 3-1, 1st in Pool A (Western Pennsylvania won Pool B with a 5-0
record)

SUMMARY – St. Mary’s Bison showed improvements from last year in the
opening match and would eventually qualify for the Gold Bracket.  The
Fanwood Tornadoes played their best match of the tournament and defeated
us for the first time in two years fair and square.  The Delaware Hawks
had all middle school players, I believe, but they hung with us for the
first half of the match before we pulled away.  The fourth match was our
highlight as we beat the Lexington Blue Jays, who also finished the day
3-1, to win the pool on tiebreakers and secure a first round bye for the
Gold Bracket.

SATURDAY 10/27 – Gold Bracket (for top 6 of 11 teams from pool play)

Semifinals vs. Rochester – lost 2-0 (26-24, 25-11)

3rd place vs. Lexington – lost 25-21

SUMMARY – In the semifinals, the Lady Ghosts rallied from a big first set
deficit to lead 24-23 before errors did us in.  Our girls felt like they
gave that set away to #3 seeded Rochester, and couldn’t recover for the
next set.  The Wildcats became the clear second best team of the
tournament with a dominant 2nd set win over our young Lady Ghosts.  For
the 3rd place match, Lexington played more consistently than we did and
they were able to beat MPS for the first time in three years to earn the
trophy.  Congratulations to WPSD for winning the championship match over
Rochester 2-0 for the Lions’ 3rd consecutive ESDAA title.  Congratulations
as well to Sabrina Rodrigues and Zora Elliott-Mendelsohn for being among
the tournament all-star winners.  Finally, we would like to thank the
NYSD-Fanwood personnel and community for a very successful ESDAA
tournament.

We came into the tournament seeded #1 with the aim of winning our first
ESDAA championship.  Yesterday watching WPSD and Rochester was a good
reality check that we still have a ways to go to be championship
contenders.  What both coaches are most proud of from the tournament is
the youth of our players.  The other five schools in the Gold Bracket had
a total of 4 middle school players in their rosters.  We alone had six,
and none of them were satisfied with our end result.

Our Lady Ghosts will use what we learned from the victories and defeats
this weekend to prepare us for the less intensive IGC league
single-elimination playoffs on Monday, where we ended the regular season
in 5th place with a 6-6 record being the only school with middle
schoolers.  Our overall record currently stands at 15-11.

Gary Klingensmith

part of newspaper story

MILLERSBURG — In a game Juniata coach Gary Klingensmith was worried the
team would be flat, it instead dominated the line of scrimmage on both
sides of the ball in a 55-7 win over Millersburg in Tri-Valley League
football Friday night.

Juniata (2-7, 2-6) made it apparent that it wanted to establish the
running game early and often and it paid off big.

Juniata closes out the season with a home game against Newport Oct. 26.

note:
It is Klingensmith’s 301st career win. This deaf coach steps down
after 50 coaching seasons as the game with Newport will be his
last coaching game.

random deafsports thoughts

Does DeafDigest Sports editor trust maxpreps, which ranks
all high school teams in common sports such as football
and basketball?

Yes and no.

Yes, only that it is a reasonable estimate of strength
of a high school team when compared with their own
opponents. Reasonable estimate, yes, but an exact
estimate, no way!

No, because some leagues do not permit games outside
of their own league play. As an example, New York
City’s Public Schools Athletic League do not allow
outside games in football. This being said, how can
one compare the strength of a New York City football
team with the strength of a high school team, say in
California – if there is no common basis of comparison?

Enough said!
