note:
DeafDigest Sports hates it when fall season honors are
announced in January when everyone is so focused on
basketball scores – and also hates it when winter
honors are announced in May when weather is warm
and something is going on (track, baseball, softball)!

deaf game on TV

part of newspaper story

The first ever televised event for an England deaf game was last year
rugby game against Wales deaf

note:
Clerc on TV? No, but video, yes.

National Deaf Club basketball on TV? No, but video, yes.

Deaflympics on TV? No, but video, yes.

any difference between TV and video?

………………………

college athlete

Emily Wright

freshman

volleyball

American River College (junior college, California)

only played 7 of her team’s 32 matches, and 11 sets

her stats seem decent

do not know why she played so little – quit the team
or left college or was injured or was coaches’ decision?

………………………

elite deaf athlete

Meghan Agosta

women’s hockey on all levels

was inducted into 2019 Canadian hockey hall of fame

she is deaf but functions as a hearing person, and in fact,
her full time job is police officer in Vancouver, BC

she has apparently retired from competitive hockey

………………………

random deafsports talk

Every day an update on a college deaf athlete?

No

Every day an update on an elite deaf athlete?

No

When deaf sports news are slow (Holidays and summer
months) then there will be college and elite updates
as fillers to keep DeafDigest Sports going on a daily
basis, if at all possible. Daily newspapers do not always
carry stories on the deaf in sports.
