Competitors brace for cold tournament

When the state’s small school divisions — Classes 1A, 2A and 3A — convene
Friday at Albuquerque’s Great Friends of UNM Track Complex, they will be
greeted by a taste of early-spring weather with a hint of winter sprinkled
into it.

As athletes hit the long jump pit, the discus circle and the high jump
stand to open the state track and field meet at 8 a.m., they should be
ready to be hit with this: Temperatures in the mid-to-high 40s, winds
between 20 mph and 25 mph with potential gusts near 35 mph and rain —
thunderstorms are forecast for the afternoon.

Another multi-event athletes to watch will be New Mexico School for the
Deaf senior Deven Thompson, who will attempt to repeat as discus and shot
put champion. He will be a part of the first group to face off against the
weather.

random deafsports thoughts

Cannot help but remember Bill Gregory, who passed
away last year. A Canadian, he played sports
at Gallaudet during the late sixties/early
seventies. His Gallaudet athletic career was
interesting. He played three seasons of
football, a sport he didn’t like – was an
offensive tackle and then quarterback
and then fullback. He played four seasons of
baseball, a sport he never played before and
hit over .360 as a senior. His favorite sport
was hockey – was the top player on his team
with his wicked slap shots that often went in
for goals; played two seasons with Washington
Chiefs, a semi-pro hockey team.

He was big; 6’1 and 230 lbs. In these days
athletes of his size were considered giants!

He said that hockey (a club sport) was the
reason he came to Gallaudet!

elite deaf athletes

part of newspaper story

European Tour announces two tournaments for golfers with disability
The European Tour took a huge step in the direction of inclusivity in
golf, as it announced two tournaments for Golfers with Disability.

The two two-day 36-hole events will be run alongside two of this season’s
biggest Rolex Series events, at the Scottish Open and the Dubai Finale.

note:

we have outstanding deaf golfers in USA. Why not an
elite deaf “pro” golf tournament for them – ie
at Masters or US Open or PGA Open?

Kevin Hall vs Michael Mabashov? Why not?

………………………………………

2019 football schedules, 8 turned in so far

Just hoping all schedules will be turned in
before schools close for the summer.

If you have completed your football schedule, please
email it to barry@deafdigest.com
