Monte Del Sol  53

NMSD 50

In a tight game at Larson Gym, The Roadrunners lost a close game that saw leads
change sides through. Monte Del Sol is a much taller and experienced 2AA team
and defeated us handedly in our season opener by 11 points. Tonight’s game
showed that the Roadrunners had the talent and mettle to compete with bigger
schools, However, mental mistakes down the stretch and missed free throws doomed
the Roadrunners. The team was led by Senior post Luis Villalobos’ 22 points and
13 rebounds. Sophomore point guard Bruce Brewer, Jr. was quiet tonight with 13
points, 8 assists and 4 steals. Freshman post Kieran Vollmar had 13 points and
10 rebounds. The 7-4. Roadrunners travel to Jemez Valley this Thursday in an
away district game.

Record 7-4

Rhode Island boys’ basketball

RISD Boys Basketball played their first back-to-back game of the year,
hosting San Miguel School. This would be a good test for our boys as San
Miguel is known for their speed and good ball movement. We struggled to
keep
up with them in the first half, finding ourselves in a 34-15 deficit. The
coaches continued their emphasis on making the right decisions and taking
better care of the ball. This is a season-long process as we strive to
become better and get ourselves ready for the ESDAA Div. 2 Boys Basketball
Tournament next month, so there were some bright spots in this game, as
San
Miguel won 56-31.

part of newspaper story

50 YEARS AGO (1970): Steve Blehm, formerly of Bismarck, broke his own
North Dakota School for the Deaf scoring record with a 52-point splurge
against the Devils Lake B-squad. Blehm’s burst led the Bulldogs, now 6-4
on the season, to an 80-74 victory.

note:

Blehm, who broke all these school, state and national scoring
records, played basketball at Gallaudet during the latter
part of the seventies. He was deadly with his shots, looking
for ways to keep himself open.

………………….

random deafsports talk

re the Steve Blehm story above, there was another high
scoring star that Gallaudet was blessed to have
during the high scoring era of the seventies –
Ernest Epps, who averaged 37.6 points per game as a
senior at Kentucky School for the Deaf. He reportedly
attracted notice from University of Maryland. He,
and Blehm played full careers at Gallaudet but only
played together one season (Epps was older than
Blehm).
