Football, soccer and volleyball All-American honors

All invited schools have been contacted by DeafDigest Sports
editor for their nominations (football, soccer and volleyball).

Other schools that have never contributed news to
DeafDigest Sports have not been invited.

There have been some non-responses from the invited schools.

The announcements, for each fall sport, will be announced in
due time.

If and when the announcements have been made, if you see
schools not on the All-American list, then non-responses
may be the reason.

Volleyball

Volleyball ESDAA Tournament

New York School for the Deaf hosted the ESDAA tournament in White Plains,
New York. There were 11 participating schools. It was an exciting weekend.

We began the tournament playing 1 set round robin games to determine the
playoff seeding. The teams in our pool were the Marie Philips School
(MPS), St. Mary School for the Deaf (SMSD), Lexington School for the Deaf
(LEX), Delaware School for the Deaf (DSD), and our own Lady Tornadoes.

Our first game of the tournament was against SMSD. The girls were very
nervous because the gym was full of excited Fanwood fans. By the end of
match, the girls were finally able to pull the score up, but it was too
late. We lost to SMSD, 23-25. Next, we lost a close match to LEX with a
score of 22-25. The girls decided to get fired up and played their best
against MPS. We beat them with a score of 25-24. Thanks to Britney’s
amazing kill & last serving point! Last match was against DSD and we beat
them with a score of 25-8. Our record for our pool was 2 wins & 2 losses.
SMSD had the same record as the Golden Tornadoes. They beat us in the
head-to-head match, so that put us at seed #4 for pool A and into the
Silver bracket.

Game Highlights for Round Robin games (in total)
Silmara Campos- 2 aces
Kiara Herrera- 3 aces
Britney Pon- 4 ace, 3 kills
Samantha Pon-18 aces

On Saturday morning, we entered Silver bracket. We played a one set match
against Pennsylvania School for the Deaf. Unfortunately, the girls were
not able to mentally rally together for a win and were defeated, 22-25.
Silmara earned 3 aces & 1 assist. Kiara scored 3 kills. Britney earned one
ace, 1 kill and two assists. Samantha got 1 ace & 1 assist.

After the tournament, the girls learned that a positive mentality is very
important to playing well individually and as a cohesive unit. Even though
the outcome of Fanwood’s team wasn’t what we expected, it was a fun
tournament for all. Next year, WSPD will host the ESDAA tournament. Our
current record is 11-8.

New York School for the Deaf vs EF Academy- WIAA Champion

We were advancing to Final due to Montfort Academy non-show up. The game
was forfeit with final score 1-0 and advanced to the championship game.

We lost the WIAA Champion game against EF Academy with a score of 0-3,
(18-25, 14-25 & 17-25). Our volleyball team had a good season with many
new players. It was a bittersweet night because it was Samantha Pon’s
very last game. Our final record is 13-9.

Game Highlights
Silmara Campos- 1 ace & 1 kill
Kalia Gathers- 2 aces & 1 assist
Kiara Herrera- 1 ace & 1 assist
Anniesha Persaud- 1 assist
Britney Pon- 1 ace, 1 kill, 1 dig, & 1 block

random deafsports thoughts

a basketball coach at a hearing college complained that
his deaf player has a hard time following instructions.

Coach would say, go left and the player would go right

Coach would say, go right and the palyer would go left

Did that deaf player have an interpreter? Don’t think so,
but that deaf player has a repuation for refusing to
accept his deafness, hence offers for an interpreter
would be rejected!  Very sad.
