Indiana baseball

newspaper score

Columbus Christian 19, Indiana Deaf 2 (5 innings)


Indiana softball

newspaper story

The Indiana School for the Deaf did manage to add one more run in the top
of the fifth on a double and a Mustang error, but that only made it 17-4
and triggered the 10-run rule to end the contest with Fountain Central.


Louisiana football

Football Game needed

I hope things go back to normal this fall and we are able to have more
Deaf games for you to cover!

I recently had a team cancelled on me. So I’m looking for a team that is
able to play a 6/8 man team with LSD on Saturday, October 23rd, which is
our homecoming date.

I will make sure it is a home-home series to return the favor.
Please email me at denton.mallas@email.lsdvi.org if you are interested.

and both lost by points, but they both grabbed the silver medal! Zarek
Nathanson being the last seeded surprised them all by wrestling awesomely
and finished third. Shadow Tollison lost his first match against seed
