Athlete of the Week – KIARA MORRIS-DADZIE.  We must honor our senior field
athlete for being a long time all-around contributor to our program!  She
made yet
another NCS berth and did very well but we will all remember her as
someone who shows up everyday, is a good communicator, always trying her
best, and someone who
likes to practice hard outside of practice time.  We will all miss you!

Lady Bisons Track & Field ESDAA tournament results 5/10/19-5/11/19

The Lady Bisons travelled to Rhode Island School for the Deaf (RISD) this
weekend to compete in the 42nd annual ESDAA track & field tournament. Our
ladies matched
up against 10 other schools made up of both division 1 and 2.  After 2
days of competition, our team represented our school well by finishing 2nd
amongst “small”
schools (division 2) and 4th overall.  We had 9 personal records, 1 gold
medal, 2 silver medals, 1 bronze medal,  rookies who gained invaluable
experience running
on a 400 meter track for the first time, and some wonderful team bonding
and support for each other throughout the entire weekend.   It was a
complete success for
the Lady Bisons. The coaching staff is excited to see that we are a young
team with no graduates this year and that our future is looking bright!
Please wish all
of our athletes congratulations on a job well done.  That said, our season
isn’t finished!  We will look to build on our achievements this week
Wednesday when we
host Cardinal O’Hara on the Lou Panella track at 4pm.  Come out and
support your Lady Bisons.

Deaf Pontypool boy racer podiums in Super One National Kart Championships

AN 11-YEAR-OLD racer has celebrated becoming the first profoundly deaf
racer to podium in a prestigious UK Karting championship.

Caleb McDuff, from Pontypool, finished third on the first day of racing at
the picturesque Rowrah circuit in Cumbria in the Super One National Kart
Championships, before following that up with a second place the second
day.

The speedster suffered from chronic ear infections aged two, leaving him
profoundly deaf – meaning he is unable to hear most sounds.

“The more experienced drivers were very fast and tough. If I made a
mistake, they would push me wide meaning I would spin a lot.

The Super One National Kart Championships, is regarded as the premier
karting championship in the UK, producing many famous drivers including
current F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton, who drove for the same Zipkart
Team in his karting days that Caleb drives for now.

note:

A future Formula One racing champion? Hope so!

cricket sign language

part of newspaper story

When playing at international level, deaf cricket rules dictate that the
players are not permitted to wear hearing aids.

“When I bat, the batsman at the non-striking side will look at me and look
at the ball, too. I will call him to come or hold my hand up showing a
stop sign. Cricket has its own sign language on and off the field,” he
explains.

Howley explains how conventional sign language has unexpected advantages
on the cricket field. “Like when you swing the ball when you bowl,” he
says, “I will always stand with my back towards the batsman and do a
sign.”

Do read the above cricket story.

Not in USA but in many nations overseas, cricket is a wildly
popular sport.

There is no USA national deaf cricket team that plays in
deaf World Cricket championships. But because of many
deaf immigrants, who knows, there could be a deaf
cricket team here in USA some day?

Never say never.

Does DeafDigest Sports editor understand cricket rules?
Not really, but he tries to learn but watching it on
TV can be quite confusing.
