GAMES THIS WEEK – This week, we have three straight baseball games
starting today.  Our original softball game against Madison Park today and
Thursday has been
cancelled as they couldn’t have enough players to field a team.  We are
gracious for Redwood Christian for being willing to come and play us on
Wednesday despite
the fact that we will play each other two more times because everyone else
is either booked, on spring break, or unable to accommodate in a short
notice.  Let’s
have fun this week!

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK –  ANABEL AMADOR.  Our Track and Field Team’s manager
has been very instrumental in getting our team going for the last three
weeks since the
team has had an early start.  Thank you so much for your time and
contribution, this means a lot!

There was a story of University of Nebraska recruiting two
football players to play in the Big Ten tournament. The
team was down to 7 players. These two football players have
played high school basketball.

Can’t happen to Gallaudet?

It did – several times. In the sixties, Gallaudet wrestling
team did not have wrestlers in some weight divisions because
of injuries and there were no back up wrestlers in these

Coach Thompson Clayton would recruit some students,
especially those that were either strong or had some past
wrestling experience and ask them to wrestle at the last
minute in some meets.

He knew these wrestlers would not win their meets but just
asked them – do not get pinned. A pin would cost Gallaudet
five points while a decision would cost three points. To
Clayton, saving two points was valuable.

Yes, he got away with some meet wins, using these
emergency wrestlers!
