Colorado girls’ basketball

Our match up was against Elbert at home. Prior to this game we have had
trouble playing the first half with fire. Elbert had some stocky players,
one being a giant at six feet tall. Nonetheless, we came ready to play and
scored 15 points in the first half. Elbert, being as good as they are,
easily managed to score 37 points in the first half. Elbert continued that
hot streak scoring 18 in the third quarter, to our 0. We finished the
fourth quarter scoring 6 points to their 10. Senior Diana Enriquez led the
team with 12 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists, and a block. Senior Rose
Longbine managed to come up with 7 points, 2 steals, and a rebound.
Freshman Marie Padilla grabbed 6 rebounds, 2 points, and a vicious block
to end the night. Seniors Chantelle Morales, Daniela Lopez, and Alexis
Stines were able to get shots up, but unfortunately were not able to
connect. Stines was able to come down with 3 rebounds, and a steal. Lopez
pulled down 2 rebounds.

Elbert – 65
CSDB – 21

Record 0 – 12

Florida boys’ basketball

Hello Dragon fans! This week was an exhausting week for us having to play
3 games after returning from Mississippi.  I’m glad to report that we were
able to go 2-1.  We have our last game of the season next week to try to
get to .500 for the season.
It’s Senior Night for our lone senior and the Cheerleaders, too.  come out
and rock Settles Thursday 2/7.

1/28 vs First Baptist Christian Academy Palm Coast:  Won 65-64.  We scored
31 points in the 4th quarter to pull this game out on our home floor!  We
trailed by 19 points around the midpoint of the 4th quarter.  Once we
caught on fire, there was no
stopping us!  Matthew Guillou was incredible scoring 19 points from 7/8
shooting and 5/6 from the freethrow line.  Andre Pellicer kept us in the
game in the 1st half by scoring 10 points.  Luis Merced had 6 assists in
this game.

1/29 at Beacon of Hope. Won 59-26. We managed to get a comfortable victory
and spread the playing time around.  We tallied 14 assists on 26 buckets
in this game.  Marcus Guillou had 6 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists, and 1
block in this game.

1/31 vs St Johns Country Day School. Lost 33-57.  Easily our least
inspiring performance of the 2nd semester.  We struggled in all facets of
the game and did not hustle enough.  This is the kind of loss that will
make practice more enjoyable next week
:).  Josiah Roberson’s offensive game was our lone bright spot as he hit 4
three-pointers in the game (3 in the 1st half) to finish with 16 points.

Season record: 10-11

Next games: SENIOR NIGHT at HOME Feb 7, 6pm CST vs Beacon of Hope.

random deafsports thoughts

It was sometime in the late eighties. DeafDigest Sports
editor wanted to watch a NHL playoff hockey game on TV.

The game was not captioned; there were no streaming
captions, either.

It was so confusing. The hockey newscaster kept on talking
for a long time on TV but there was nothing for the
deaf fans to know what was going on.

Next day in the newspapers it was said the game was
delayed because the hockey coach was suspended by
the league because of abusive behavior. The team
asked the court to force the league to reinstate
the coach. The opposing team, angry about the
court decision, refused to play. The referees
referees refused to officiate the game forcing
the league to hire amateur league referees.

This led to a lot of behind the scenes discussions
between several parties.

Few hours later, the game was played.

Hearing fans knew what was going on.

Deaf fans didn’t!
