part of newspaper story

We’re talking about the Cincinnati Dragons.
The team will travel to Wichita, Kansas, Thursday to compete in the 2021
NWBA Toyota Wheelchair Basketball National Tournament.

Destroying the competition this year, the Dragons are the No. 1 seed in
the upcoming championship tournament with a record of 24-0.

Wheelchair basketball is fast and physical, but this group’s got the
winning formula and is ready to bring home a title to Cincinnati.

Kerwin, he’ll begin his collegiate career as a Wildcat playing for the
University of Arizona.

note:
He previously attended Kentucky School for the Deaf and had to make the
commute to his practices and games. That was before he transferred
to a mainstreamed program.

random deafsports thoughts

DeafDigest Sports editor, attending the 1993 Deaflympics in
Sofia, Bulgara remembers USA defeating Croatia in a highly
fought contest.

It was an American team of athletic standouts being
assembled together at the last minute to compete
in the Deaflympics. Croatia has been playing this
sport for years and years.

Team Handball is a popular sport in Europe, not that
so in USA.

Will USA win again if Team Handball is being
assembled again? Not so sure.
