Texas track

Barry,

Every year the TSD track coaches are tasked with assembling a team of 12
boys and 11 girls. This year was present great challenges due to having
young athletes with limited experience on the National level. Both boys
and girls teams consisted of one senior and 11 underclassmen. The young
lady Rangers showed no problems demonstrating competing on the national
level. They took the lead from the start by scoring victories in the field
events and long distance events. The sprint relay teams matched the same
intensity, running away from the competition, outscoring Maryland Deaf
School 189 to 156. Ashlene Etkie captured the honors of being name Best
Field Athlete of the Berg Seeger Relays.

The TSD boys had similar success by scoring points early in the field
events as well as long distance events. They scored points with the sprint
relay teams, but trailed CSD by 2.5 points with one more event left. The
coaches gathered the athletes together prior to the final event to explain
what was at stake. With the last event of 4×400 relay being the deciding
factor of who will be victorious, the Rangers stepped up and displayed the
heart of a champion by leaving it all on the track to defeat California
School for the Deaf – Fremont with the final score of 111.5 to 110.5.

The coaches are proud of how both boys and girls competed on the national
level. Winning the Championship was a testament of the athletes not
letting their youth & inexperience keep them from reaching the goal they
set before traveling to California. Rudy Tomjanovich said it best when he
said Never underestimate the heart of a Champion. Congratulations to the
TSD boys and girls track and field team winning back to back Berg Seeger
titles.

TSD Boys – 111.50

TSD Girls – 189.00

How important is routine paperwork as far as Deaf Athletics
is concerned?

Very important, at least with the Kashmir government
(a nation near India).  There was a story that
50 athletic organizations, one of them the
All J&K Sports Association of the Deaf, had their
recognization withdrawn from the government.

Reason – these organizations missed the deadline
for filing their paperwork.

Without paperwork, these organizations, including
the deaf organization, could not get grants from
the government!

Can’t happen to the deaf in USA? It has happened
from time to time!
