yesterday’s erroneous dedication

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to
John Carty that departed us. He spent 28 years
of his long teaching career at Rhode Island
School for the Deaf, coaching the girls’
basketball teams and then serving as the
school athletic director.

note:
This notice was published yesterday. It is in
error. John Carty is alive, but is in his
final days. It was the social media that
miscommunicated the posting to the
public.

DeafDigest Sports apologizes for posting
this miscommunication and prays that
John’s family was not incovenienced
by this erroneous posting.

deaf pro in tennis

part of newspaper posting

28-year-old Yannick Hanfmann, who is ranked No. 101 in the world (just
four spots below his personal best). A decade older than Musetti, Hanfmann
is also playing his best tennis in recent months; the German won his 6th
ATP Challenger title in Todi, reached his 2nd ATP final at Kitzbuhel, and
scored the biggest win of his career – over World No. 9 Gael Monfils – in
Hamburg.

Yannick Hanfmann, who is hearing impaired, is also known for his big serve
and powerful groundstrokes. The German has dropped only seven games in two
matches this week, highlighted by a 6-2, 6-1 rout over the No. 3 seed
Casper Ruud in the second round.

Whose fault was it for the miscommunication
regarding a past coach’s final days on
earth?

DeafDigest Sports will not point fingers
nor throw it under the bus.

Just hope Carty lives out his final
days in peace and in happiness.
