dedication to a past athlete

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to
Francis Thompson, past Wisconsin School for
the Deaf and deaf basketball clubs athlete.

the obit said:
He played basketball and football during his tenure at the Wisconsin
School for the Deaf and was a force to be reckoned with. In basketball, he
played as an intimidating defensive center who was many times unstoppable
due to his clever moves and plays despite his 6-foot stature. In the
1950-1951 season, he broke the school record by scoring 354 points. His
showmanship on the court was glorified and earned him induction into the
Wisconsin School for the Deaf Hall of Fame. In addition, Francis was a
versatile football player, playing both offense and defense, terrorizing
the opposing teams. Francis played basketball for 10 seasons from
1953-1962 with the Milwaukee Silent Club, helping the team win two
championships at the AAAD in 1955 and 1956. He went on to coach basketball
for both the Milwaukee and Madison Associations of the Deaf. He was well
loved and respected by everyone he touched.

GU women’s swimming drops meet to Goucher

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University women’s swimming and diving program
lost its dual meet with Goucher College, 156-70, on Saturday in the Field
House pool.

Gallaudet (0-5) won four of the 14 events against the Gophers.

Junior Julia Miller-Notestone (Medford, Ore.) won the 100-yard backstroke
with a time of 1:08.64 and touched the wall first in the 500-yard
freestyle (6:04.81). Miller-Notestone was second in the 50-yard backstroke
(33.37) as she just missed first place by a second.

Junior Jessica Monroe (Senoia, Ga.) was first in the 100-yard butterfly
with a posted time of 1:18.82. She took second in the 50-yard butterfly
with a new personal best time of 34.19 seconds.

Senior captain Jana Kiefer (Leander, Texas) earned first-place points in
the 100-yard IM with a new personal best time of 1:23.18 to secure nine
points for the Bison. Kiefer took third in the 100-yard butterfly
(1:23.32) and 100-yard breaststroke (1:37.71).

women’s basketball
Gallaudet picks up first conference win with three-point home victory

WASHINGTON – Gallaudet University erased a 12-point halftime deficit here
Saturday afternoon and outscored Penn St.-Berks 51-36 in the second half
en route to a 81-78 victory in a North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC)
women’s basketball game on Padden Court in the Field House.

Gallaudet (3-3, 1-1 NEAC) was paced by its starters as senior
guard/forward Hannah Neild (Litchfield, N.H.) scored 15 of her game-high
26 points in the second half. She added a team-high nine rebounds, three
steals, two assists and one block in the win.

men’s basketball
Valencia tallies 1,000th career point as Bison survive 2OT thriller

WASHINGTON – The men’s basketball game here Saturday evening between
Gallaudet University and Penn St.-Berks had a little bit of everything in
this North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) tilt in the Field House on
Padden Court before a crowd of 424. The game featured heartbreak,
thrilling moments, a team’s first win of the 2018-19 season and personal
career milestone. Of course a game like that couldn’t be jam-packed into
40 minutes so this conference game went an extra 10 minutes as Gallaudet
won 104-100 in double overtime.

Junior guard Noah Valencia (Riverside, Calif.) entered the contest in
search of his 1,000th career point as he was 20 points shy. He had a slow
start in the first half, where he scored three points and was hampered
with two early personal fouls. Valencia heated up in the second half with
16 points as he made 6 of 11 shots from the field, including two
3-pointers. Luckily, the need for overtime allowed Valencia to notch his
1,000th career point with a free throw made at the 2:34 mark in the first
overtime period before the home crowd. Play was stopped for a brief moment
as Valencia was recognized for becoming the 27th Gallaudet men’s
basketball player to record 1,000 career points

SCSDB – Washington 1, Bibbs 18, Haywood 32, Presley 6, Whitestone 6

KSD wasnÿÿt able to keep up with SCSDBÿÿs speed as they racked up 49
turnovers. Still a very inexperienced team with youth. Richard Ward led
KSD with 15 points and 16 rebounds.

Next game in Pittsburgh.

Game Report- December 1st, 2018. Arkansas School for the Deaf at Kentucky

KSD (0-2) Ward 17, Fox 5, Vickery 2, Collins 6, Haynes 2

It was KSD second game of the season. Both teams got off to bad starts
offensively as the game was close until late in the second quarter then
Arkansas went on a short run giving them a 17-10 lead by halftime. Lack of
rebounding and passing hurt the team. The team committed 42 turnovers
which prevented their chance to catch up. Very inexperienced team.
