had four points from Gabriella Rosas in that span.

Standouts: Mya Malone joined the Lady Roadrunners’ scoring party with 18
points. Daisy Ortiz scored all 10 of her points in the first half for the

Monte del Sol 56, New Mexico School for the Deaf 43

What happened: It was something that hadn’t been uttered on the
Roadrunners’ sidelines in four years — they were the smaller team. The
Dragons used their size advantage to build a 28-21 halftime lead and kept
NMSD at bay in a nondistrict game at the Institute of American Indian Art
wellness center. The Roadrunners also didn’t have depth, and played their
starting five the entire game.

Standouts: Brayan Roybal led the Dragons with 15 points, Kevin Enriquez
scored 12 and Ivan Morales chipped in with 11. Bruce Brewer Jr. led the
Roadrunners with 20 points and had six rebounds, while Luis Villalobos had
14 points and 11 rebounds.

What’s next: Monte del Sol (1-1) heads to Walatowa on Friday. NMSD (0-1)
plays Desert

college football

part of newspaper story

Nebraska Husky Todd Honas set to walk away from the game he loves

For former Husky all-state wide receiver and current Husker Todd Honas,
the number five is painful enough, but nothing like his fifth concussion
he suffered on Oct. 16 when a teammate blindsided him during practice,
knocking him out of his football career, ending his playing days as he
smartly protects his health for the long run.

note:
he is deaf but functions as a hearing person and was a career walk-on with
the Nebraska team

random deafsports talk

Someone wanted to know who the deaf school was and
which athletic director was it and which sport was it
re yesterday’s random deafsports talk (below)

Sorry. DeafDigest Sports will not reveal any of
the above questions. Thanks for understanding

Yesterday:
Today DeafDigest Sports received an email from a disappointed
fall season coach whose best athlete was not honored nor was
the school mentioned on the list of schools with these won/lost
records.

The school’s new athletic director paid no attention to
these DeafDigest Sports daily news.

The retiring athletic director did explain these deaf sports
reporting procedures to the new athletic director. For some
reason the new athletic director did not understand.

As a result, the school’s best athlete is not being
recognized and the school’s team is not on the won/lost
list of schools in that sport.

This is sad.
