Florida girls’ basketball

FSDB vs First Baptist Christian Academy Crusaders – 11/21/21

Final Score: 57-15

We had our first home game, and we captured the second win of the season.
As coaches, we are very proud of our girls’ performance tonight. Everyone
on the team had
an opportunity to play. It was a team effort tonight. Each girl played
their heart out on both sides of the court. Our freshman Oceana and
sophomore Taria helped
with many steals and set up the fast break opportunities. Oceana scored 10
points while Taria scored 8 points. With their help, Olivia led the team
with 20 points.
Lourdine attacked the rim and poured 12 points. Shylah, Keliah, Elsie, and
Samantha kept the Crusaders away from the paint. Again, it was a team
effort tonight. Our
next game will be on December 3 against Halifax Academy.

Texas football

part of newspaper story

The Warriors (11-0) will continue their journey in the TAPPS Division III
playoffs at 7 p.m. Friday at home against the Texas School for the Deaf
(7-4) out of Austin. TWCA easily dispatched its area-round opponent,
defeating San Marcos Academy 48-7 last week. It was the ninth game this
season in which the team scored 40-plus points. The Warriors have now
outscored their opponents 537-90 during their dominant run.

“We executed our game plan,” Hollas said of the opening victory. “We came
into the game knowing what they do well, and we knew what we had to take
away. Our defense, like it has all year, stepped up and gave up less than
100 yards of total offense for the entire game. Offense, I think the first
drive was two plays. We put points on the board early and then just kept
piling on. Second half, we scored on the first drive and had a running
clock, and we got some young kids in. So it was a good all-around win for
the program.”

The School for the Deaf is currently on a four-game winning streak, which
includes a 19-16 victory over Lutheran North last week. TWCA plays in the
same district as Lutheran North and beat them 41-8 back on Oct. 11.
Regardless of any previous results, the Warriors will be ready to perform
their best on Friday night.

The winner of this game will take on the winner between Boerne Geneva
(7-4) — the team that eliminated the Warriors last season — and Bay Area
Christian (8-3), a team TWCA defeated 42-7 earlier this year.

note:
do not underestimate Texas SD. They defeated Maryland SD
its only defeat this season. Minus Texas, Maryland would
have been 9-0.

random deafsports talk

DeafDigest Sports prays that West Virginia,
despite its low enrollment, will still continue
with deaf sports.

In the late fifties, West Virginia was a powerhouse
in deaf sports.
