Gallaudet softball

Gallaudet’s Hannah Neild selected to Google Cloud Academic All-District
Softball First Team

WASHINGTON  – The 2019 Google Cloud Academic All-District® Softball Teams,
selected by CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors of America), were
released and Gallaudet University sophomore Hannah Neild (Litchfield,
N.H.) was named to the District 2 first team for Division III. Neild will
now be added to the national ballot for the chance to earn Academic
All-America honors, which will be announced on Tuesday, June 4.

Neild becomes the first Google Cloud Academic All-District® softball team
honoree to represent Gallaudet.

Neild was selected to the 2019 North Eastern Athletic
Conference (NEAC) softball all-conference second team last week.

This is not Neild’s first appearance on a Google Cloud All-District® Team.
In fact, Neild was selected in February to the women’s basketball
All-District First Team. In March, she was named Google Cloud Academic
All-America® Team Member of the Year for Division III women’s basketball
after being selected to the Google Cloud Academic All-America® First Team.

note:

it is the same Hannah Neild, one of Gallaudet’s outstanding
soccer players (fall) and basketball (winter).

She attended Merrimack College (NCAA-II) but not “allowed”
to play soccer and softball, just basketball only. That was
before she transferred to Gallaudet.

At Gallaudet, she was free to play any sports she wanted to so!

part of newspaper story

Iowa soccer player overcomes deafness, plans to play in college

NORWALK, Iowa — For all the noise there is in soccer, Ethan Froehlich
experiences a silent sport.

“The only limitation I have is the fact that I don’t hear,” Ethan said.

And that passion has only grown. Now a senior for Norwalk, Ethan is happy
to play for both the varsity and junior varsity squads because he really
loves soccer.

Ethan’s been involved with the USA Deaf Soccer and has signed on to play
college soccer at Galludet, a private university for deaf and
hard-of-hearing students.

Gallaudet athletics launches fundraising campaign

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University athletics department launched its
first online fundraising campaign to benefit Bison student-athletes. The
campaign kicked off on Tuesday, May 7, at the annual sports banquet and
will last until September. The goal of the campaign is $56,000 within a
four-month period.

“This campaign is founded to support our athletics programs at Gallaudet
University. The money raised will enable our student-athletes and their
teams to have their best season yet,” said Gallaudet Athletic Director
Victor Mansure. “Every dollar raised makes a real difference. Anyone can
give to the campaign!”

Gallaudet has partnered with MobileCause, who helps non-profits attract
more donors and inspire giving with its fundraising and donor engagement
software and digital marketing services. MobileCause is trusted by
thousands of non-profit organizations.

“Securing a broad base of support from our community demonstrates our
value and brings more awareness to Gallaudet Athletics,” added Mansure.
“We are a tax-exempt organization under IRC 501(c)(3) and contributions
are tax deductible as donors will receive a tax receipt moments after
making their gift.”

random deafsports thoughts

times have changed in deaf schools football

DeafDigest Sports editor has been trying to collect
schedules of all deaf school football teams.

He just wants to post deaf vs deaf football games,
but with 9 schools at this point, it is not possible.

He had email discussions with some schools. Responses were:

— some schools were waiting for their principals to OK
the schedules (classroom schedules and travel budgets)

— some schools were waiting for state approval of these
schedules

— some schools would need to wait until late summer to
find out if they have enough boys to field a team this
coming fall

— and so on

frustrating? Yes, very much so!

Is DeafDigest Sports editor being patient?

Yes.
