deaf pro golfer

Hearing-impaired golfer Kaylin Yost, a Monday qualifier, opens with a 67
in first career LPGA start

Where do you begin to tell the story of Kaylin Yost? A Monday qualifier
making her first career LPGA start, the 24-year-old from Pembroke Pines,
Fla., shot an opening-round 67 at the Bank of Hope Founders Cup, putting
her three strokes off the lead shared by a fivesome of players, including
Ariya Jutanugarn and Stacy Lewis.

Making her play all the more remarkable is that Yost is almost entirely
deaf, her parents discovering when she was 2 that she suffered from 90
percent hearing loss.

Yost’s hearing impairment wasn’t the first bit of adversity she had
overcome. At birth, Yost was born with two dislocated hips. Doctors
initially told Yost’s parents her daughter wouldn’t be able to walk,
and Kaylin spent the first 16 months in a full-body cast.

Defying the odds after two hip operations, Yost learned to walk, and
eventually started playing golf, following the lead of her older brother
Alex. She eventually earned a college scholarship to Campbell, where she
won four individual titles and was a two-time Big South Conference player
of the year.

Upon graduation in 2014, York turned pro, playing the Symetra Tour for a
year and a half. Earning just $1,551 in 11 starts, she quit the sport for
six month, taking a job with a a private jet company, before catching the
golf bug again.

On Monday, Yost shot 66 to earn her spot in the field at Wildfire Golf
Club. She took full advantage of the opportunity, making five of her six
birdies on the back nine.

“Today’s round was excellent she really had a good, complete round with
the putter working well,” said Brandon Bradford, Yost’s
boyfriend/caddie. “I think she has a sub-65 in her once she settles
down. The course is laid out well for low scores.”

Bradford said Yost’s approach has been to play this tournament like
it’s just another round of golf. The tactic obviously worked well for
the first round.

“Game plan?” Yost said when asked about the next few days. “I think
just taking one shot at the time. Staying in the moment. I don’t want to
get too ahead of myself. Today does put me in a good position to get into
the weekend.”

As Yost prepares for her second round on the LPGA, she has another big
event in her near future. She will represent the United States in the Deaf
Olympics in Turkey this July. This is the first year golf is included in
the games.

incorrect comment

a comment in a newspaper:

A deaf school in Pennsylvania is my all-time nickname winner. They are the Deaf Leopards

This is not correct. Leopards is the nickname of Arkansas School
for the Deaf. The two deaf schools in Pennsylvania – Pennsylvania
School for the Deaf and Western Pennsylvania School for the
Deaf both have different nicknames.

a deaf schools football rivalry story

AFTER MORE THAN A CENTURY, HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL’S QUIET RIVALRY PLAYS ON

t’s the historic football rivalry between the Tennessee School for the
Deaf and the North Carolina School for the Deaf—the Vikings and the
Bears—two storied high-school programs located about 170 miles apart in
the southern Appalachians.

“It’s one of the reasons that a lot of kids want to come here. Not the
only reason, of course,” said NCSD athletic director Rene’ Skelton. “We
have had students who have come here before and have basically been told
that they weren’t really welcome to be on their public school’s team
because they had no way of communicating and the parents were paranoid
with what to do with them. So they’re thrilled when they get to come here
and participate.”

comment from a Deaflympics insider

Men’s VB team, Women’s VB team and several tracksters will go

Women’s soccer team is questionable   The Deadline is March 15th

No tennis players will go

another source said that vote of no confidence by the board was
the reason why the USA Deaflympics chief stepped down.

……………………………………………..

Ernest Epps, Gallaudet basketball

▪  Ernie Epps of the Kentucky School for the Deaf is in a tie for the
10th-most rebounds in one game: 31 against Hustonville in 1971.

Epps, the valedictorian of his class, was recruited by other schools, but
he chose to attend Gallaudet University for the deaf and hard of hearing
in Washington, D.C., and he later became a teacher.

In 2008, Epps was inducted into the Gallaudet University athletics hall of
fame. “I loved every minute I was at Gallaudet,” he said at the
induction ceremony.

note:
Epps was reportedly recruited by University of Maryland. Do not
know if it was a fact or a fiction.  At Gallaudet, he also
played tight end for two seasons with the football team.

Gallaudet softball

Bison run out of daylight against Gators, record first tie in nine years

WASHINGTON – The sun set on Gallaudet University’s non-conference second
game against Notre Dame of Maryland University here Thursday at the GU
Softball Complex as the teams completed the sixth inning tied at 6-6. Time
and daylight ran out on the teams as the umpires called the game due to
darkness.

Gallaudet (4-3-1) records its first tie game in nine years after the Bison
won the first game of the doubleheader 7-0. The Bison last tied an
opponent on March 2, 2008, with a 12-12 game against Wilson College in
eight innings.

Gallaudet men’s basketball write up

GALLAUDET’S HISTORICAL SEASON

Gallaudet last won a conference title in 1942-43, when the Iron Five won
the 1943 Mason-Dixon Championship. GU has only won two men’s basketball
conference titles in its history (1918-19, 1942-43).  In fact, Gallaudet
has only had one men’s team ever make the NCAA tournament (2013
football).

Fremont boys’ basketball

In 2014, CSD won the school’s first and second NCS Championship in the
same year with Boys Basketball coached by Kevin Kovacs then Softball with
Justen Burns.  Both are now coaching at Gallaudet.

In 2014, there were no State Championships for small schools.

Although, the Northern Coast Section serves the coastline of the Bay Area
all the way up to the Oregon border.

Being one of the ten section winners in the Golden State, the most
populous state in the nation, filled with some of the best athletic teams
was already monumental.

In 2017, the CSD Varsity Boys Basketball team just won the third section
championship last Saturday.

In a dramatic fashion, being down 18 points at halftime.

NOW, they have a further road ahead.

A road to the Northern California State Championship that begins in
Fremont on Wednesday!

…………………………………………………

Fremont sports

The boys basketball team has won our third overall NCS Championship in
school history with an unbelievable comeback being down 30-12 at halftime
only to finish the game with a 50-47 win!

However, back then things ended at the sectionals.  We are now making
school history and will be hosting CIF NorCal State Basketball Playoffs
for the first time at CSD on Wednesday! 

This week we will also have our first league track meet and softball game.

Athlete of the Week : LEONARDO VERGARA – The freshmen guard had a slow
start getting acclimated to the rigors and expectations of Varsity
Basketball as well as managing his time in the classroom and weightroom. 
However with his spark of energy and explosiveness, he has moved up to the
rotation and saw a lot of playing time off the bench in the NCS Playoffs. 
He scored 8 points and had two big blocks and steals in the NCS semifinals
game against Laytonville.

Chase Smartt
sophomore
Troy University
baseball, catcher

was drafted by Atlanta Braves but chose to go to college

only hit .241 as a freshman and is currently hitting .270

mystery – why would Atlanta Braves draft a player whose
batting average is not really that impressive? Possibly
he hit for high average in high school but unable to
hit that well in college ball?
