Gallaudet wins fourth NEAC men’s swimming championship, Sealts and Curran
take top honors

COBLESKILL, N.Y. – The Gallaudet University men’s swimming and diving
program celebrated its fourth North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC)
championship here Sunday evening in the Bouck Hall Natatorium on the SUNY
Cobleskill campus.

This is Gallaudet’s first NEAC championship since 2014. GU also won
back-to-back titles in 2011 and 2012.

The Bison team was announced as the winner during the awards ceremony and
accepted the team trophy, took some photos and then jumped into the pool,
one more time, to celebrate the win.

GU coasted to victory on Sunday as it finished with 615 team points to
pull away from the host Fighting Tigers of SUNY Cobleskill, who finished a
distant second with 478 points. Wells College (84 team points) and
Cazenovia College (37) battled it out for third place as both teams had
two swimmers each at the meet.

Junior Ben Sealts (Ottawa, Ohio) was named 2020 NEAC Men’s Swimmer of the
Year as he finished the championship weekend with three individual wins
and one relay victory. This is the third straight year Sealts has been
named NEAC Men’s Swimmer of the Year.

The wildcats opened up the tourney seeded first and playing the bye team, Horace
Mann. Mariana Menzynski had 12 points to lead the way.

Final score 43-28

Next up was Delaware. The wildcats came out strong and played solid defense!
Emma Kane was on fire scoring 14 points with 3-3 pointers. Ailani Johnson added
10 points and the wildcats pulled off a 35-10 victory to advance to the
championship game against the host school, Rhode Island.

Championship games always come with the jitters, this one was no different. We
started off slow and missed a few easy baskets. As usual Coach Palmer settled
the girls down and we started to play wildcat basketball! We had a balanced
offense with McKenna Girod scoring 8 points, 11 rebounds, Mariana Menzynski had
7 points and Julia Ott added 6 to bring the championship trophy back to RSD.

Final Score was 30-12

Wildcats won the Team 21 contest.

Congrats to our all stars: Mariana Menzynski, Julia Ott and Emma Kane

Jodie Ounsley: England rugby player risking hearing loss to reach the
Olympics

“They say not to play impact sports. If the magnet in my head gets
dislodged I might not be able to hear again.”

Jodie Ounsley is profoundly deaf. She can hear with a cochlear implant,
but runs the risk of losing that ability by playing rugby.

Jodie Ounsley also dreams of the Olympics. And she refuses to let her
hearing stop her getting there.

The 19-year-old became the first deaf female rugby player to be selected
for an international sevens squad and won her first England cap in October
2019.

Now, she is hoping to secure a place in the Great Britain squad that will
compete at the Tokyo Games this summer.

Deaf Peterborough footballer grateful for support after opposition player
banned for abusing him

A deaf footballer from Peterborough has thanked people for supporting him
after being abused by an opposition player who has now been banned by the
FA

Will Palmer (18) from Hampton was playing for Stamford in an FA Youth Cup
match against Lincoln United last September when he claimed offensive
language referring to his deafness was used against him.

He also alleged that the same player later mocked him during the match.

Lincoln suspended their player while an investigation was carried out, and
he has since been banned for seven matches by the Lincolnshire FA.

Season Preview – Strong team chemistry ready to propel Bison in 2020

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University baseball team is healthy and ready
to embrace the 2020 season after suffering five season-ending injuries
last season. The Bison return the majority of its team from last year as
the team chemistry is high heading into the new season.

GU head coach Curtis Pride, now in his 12th season, is excited with what
he has seen thus far in the preseason training camp. With a lot of
talented veterans returning combined with the team’s positive attitude and
motivation, Gallaudet should have a strong chance to move up the North
Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) standings this season.

“This year’s team chemistry is the best I have ever had,” said Pride. “We
just want to compete, taking this season one game at a time. Our goal is
to make the NEAC tournament and just continue to improve.”

Gallaudet swim teams ready for 2020 NEAC championships at SUNY Cobleskill this weekend

COBLESKILL, N.Y. – The Gallaudet men’s and women’s swimming & diving teams will
head north this weekend for the 2020 North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC)
championships (Feb. 14-16) at SUNY Cobleskill in the Bouck Hall Natatorium.

The preliminary rounds will begin each day at 10 a.m., followed by the
championship round races starting at 6 p.m. except on Sunday, Feb. 16, when the
championship rounds will begin at 4:45 p.m. The three-day championships will
also be livestreamed and can be viewed at the following link at the bottom of
this release.

GU’s women’s swimming and diving team finished 0-13 overall and 0-4 in NEAC
competition this year. Last year, the Bison finished the three-day championship
meet in fifth place after accumulating 213 points in 20 events. Cazenovia won
its fifth consecutive NEAC championship in 2019 with 595 points. Wells College
took second place with 476 points while Cedar Crest College took third (470) and
Cobleskill took fourth (229).

Gallaudet’s men’s swimming and diving team went 2-8 overall and 2-1 in NEAC
competition during the 2019-20 regular season. At the NEAC championships in 2019
the Bison finished in third place with a total of 244 points in 20 events. SUNY
Cobleskill took home first place with 358 points, the third consecutive title
for the Fighting Tigers.

“No matter how far you have to go, push on until you finish the race. Mental
endurance is tougher than physical endurance but I have confidence in our
swimmers that they will be successful this weekend with some PRs (personal
records) accomplished,” said Gallaudet assistant coach Chelsea Newberry, when
asked about the upcoming championships.

Gallaudet last won a NEAC swimming championship in 2014 when the Bison men’s
team won their third title. GU men’s titles earned came in 2010-11, 2011-12 and
2013-14. The Gallaudet women’s team has one NEAC title (2010-11).

note:
let us just hope that Ben Sealts, just about the top swimmer
in the conference, will pick up more honors during the conference
meet.  He is the best Gallaudet swimmer in the past 5-6 seasons.

Many, many basketball updates sent me few days ago,
to just one basketball update today?  Yes, as
basketball season nears the end and as more deaf
schools finish their seasons, stories are less
but it means one thing – spring season is
coming up (track, baseball, softball)

Gallaudet upsets top team in NEAC on the road Wednesday night

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. – Gallaudet University stepped off its Academy Bus on fire
here Wednesday night as the Bison men’s basketball team took down Penn St.
Harrisburg, the top team in the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC),
with a 67-62 victory.

Gallaudet (5-16, 5-7 NEAC) shot 43.8 percent from the field and made 7 of
12 (58.3 percent) shots from 3-point range in the first 20 minutes of the
game against Penn St. Harrisburg (14-7, 10-2 NEAC).

Senior guard Noah Valencia (Riverside, Calif.) made 16 of his game-high 23
points in the first half as he sank 4 of 5 shots from 3-point range. The
Bison trailed early before they went on a 29-4 run to take a 29-8 lead
with 6:43 left before halftime.

GU went into halftime up, 39-21.

In the second half, the buff and blue stretched its lead to 22 points in
the first 10 minutes. The Lions went on their own 21-5 run to close the
gap to 55-49 with six minutes left in regulation.

Gallaudet was able to keep Penn St. Harrisburg at an arm’s length away
down the stretch to secure the key South Division win to keep GU’s playoff
hopes alive.

Senior center Steve Valencia-Biskupiak (Riverside, Calif.) scored 10 of
his 12 points in the first half and grabbed six rebounds. Junior guard
Preston Kelly (Fishers, Ind.) finished with 11 points, eight assists,
seven rebounds and one steal.

Before a packed Larson Gym crowd, the fans had an entertaining night watching
sophomore Bruce Brewer, Junior have a fabulous performance in scoring his
1,000th career point, record a triple double with 16 points, 11 rebounds and 10
assists along with 5 steals despite being constantly double-teamed and make the
winning shot at the buzzer to help the boys defeat a hard-charging Jemez Valley
team in an important district game, 54-52.  The night was not without its
travails as the Roadrunners allowed the Warriors to creep back into the game
after sprinting to an 18 point lead, giving them the chance to tie the game at
52-all before having the game ball with 12 seconds left – setting up Brewer’s
drive through the Warriors defense to make an elbow shot that gave the
Roadrunners their 15th victory.  Senior Luis Villalobos, battling foul trouble,
was able to contribute 22 hard earned points with 16 rebounds and 4 blocks.
Freshman Kieran Vollmar chipped in with 16 points.  The boys will again face
Jemez Valley tonight at Larson Gym in the second end of a home and home
schedule.

The team is now 15-5.

Yesterday the Bisons played their first game since winning the ESDAA tournament.
GOW came to visit the Bisons and the team was looking to prove to the IAC that
they can compete with them. The game was close all game with GOW holding onto a
slight lead all game that they were able to maintain and ended up winning 54-62.
The Bisons tried to go on a run and take the lead, but GOW was able to hold off
the team. Nick Barrus led the way with 22 points, Ryan Brzezinski had 14 points,
Ethan Antone 10 points, Isa Habeeb 4 points and Saul Alvira and Kassim Kassim
each had 2 points. The team competed with GOW a lot better than they did last

random DeafSports thoughts

cannot help but think of St Mary’s
6-man football program during the
late 1940’s when comparing it with
Fremont’s switch to 8-man.

St Mary’s produced powerful 6-man
teams. They were so strong that
no 6-man teams in the Western
New York/Buffalo area were willing
to schedule them again.

There were two options –
to move up to 11-man football
(no 8-man football in the area)

or

to drop football.

St Mary’s did not have enough roster
numbers to field 11-man teams and
so it was not an option.

This is the reason why St Mary’s
dropped its successful, but shortlived
football program!

Interestingly enough, New York State
(Rome) had their own 6-man football
teams. For some reason both schools
never played each other in a game.

Minnesota 38

The Roadrunners won an opening game over the Trojans with everyone contributing
in all areas.  The team was led by sophomore point guard Bruce Brewer’s 22
points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists. Senior Luis Villalobos had a solid 18 points
and 8 rebounds in limited playing time. Freshman post Kieran Vollmar had 6
points and 7 rebounds.  8th grade Adrien Ercolino had 8 points and 4 steals.
Freshman John Hernandez made a basket and both of his free throws.

The team is now 12-4.

NMSD 69

Iowa 32

In a game where the boys started slow against the much taller and athletic
Iowans, the second quarter was where they turned the “on” switch and began
running the fast break efficiently.  Brewer had a complete all around game with
29 points, 6 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 steals.  Villalobos was dominant all over
the court, making 33 points inside and outside and snatching 17 rebounds. In the
closing seconds of the 4th quarter, freshman Jose Miranda, two months from
picking up a basketball for the first time ever, made his first career basket on
a nice three foot jumper from the low block, setting a mini-celebration off for
the boys as he has worked hard to improve his skills all winter and headed to
the Great Plains championship game for the third year in a row.

The team is now 13-4.

Oklahoma 53

Roadrunners 52

This game was an example of a team “crashing the wall” at the most inappropriate
time.  Already short-handed with a very thin and inexperienced 3 man bench, the
team got off slowly, didn’t showcase their customary speed and pretty much was
sluggish after a long day’s wait for the 8:30p tip off.

Oklahoma jumped out to a 7-0 lead before our first basket and the boys slowly
fought their way back into the game. In the second quarter, the boys
semi-exploded for a continuous stream of points which saw us enter halftime with
a 3 point lead, 29-26.  This was despite Oklahoma physically manhandling our
team continuously and a case of us being unable to actually have the ball go
through the basket on shots we normally make. In the third quarter, our lead
remained sizeable, however, foul calls went against our senior post/wing
Villalobos which saw him sit almost all of the third quarter and in which
Oklahoma use their size advantage along with their junior star guard, Isiah
Holt’s hot hand to stay close to us.  We were also unable to capitalize on the
Indians’ constant turnovers, which were aplenty. The fourth quarter saw a game
of defensive nip and tuck as both teams played great defense with a very low
scoring output.  The balls simply didn’t drop for either team on the offensive
end.  The referees called Villalobos for his fifth foul with two minutes left
and us up by five. We also missed six free throws and an ensuing possession off
an Oklahoma technical foul within those last minutes. Holt, who finished with 38
for the Indians, snatched an free-throw miss on our end and dribbled down court,
heavily guarded to make a nice pass inside to a post player who scored, putting
them up 53-52 with seven seconds left.  On the ensuing possession, Brewer made a
full court dash to attempt a layup, probably a step early, which then
agonizingly rimmed inside and out with a second left.  Oklahoma rebounded and
the game clock simply ran out of time for our boys.

Brewer finished with 21 points, 4 rebounds, 8 assists and 3 steals. Villalobos
has 19 points and 15 rebounds despite battling foul trouble and sitting on the
bench. Vollmar had 12 points and 3 rebounds. The team made 9 of 19 free throw
attempts.  Brewer was the tournament’s top vote getting All-Star and Villalobos
was also chosen to the All-Star team. The team also finished 2nd in the
free-throw team competition. We brought the 2nd place trophy home and our return
also begins a four day stretch of basketball games, starting tonight with a home
game against Walatowa.

The Team is 13-5.

NMSD 47

Walatowa 35

In a tight district game, the Boys were able to sprint ahead in the final four
minutes at home.  Weary from a long weekend, the boys started out lethargic and
without senior post Luis Villalobos, who was resting for the night due to
injuries.  Thanks to our tight defense and heady play by our players, we were
able to claim victory number 14.

Bruce Brewer Jr had 36 points, 8 rebounds and 5 steals with Kieran Vollmar
chipping in 6 points, 9 rebounds and two steals. Adrien Ercolino ran the team
from the point guard spot and had a steady night with 2 points, 3 assists and a
steal. Jesus Rios had 2 points, 5 rebounds and a pair of steals.

The team is now 14-5.

Walatowa 50

Our varsity basketball girls played a great game last night versus Walatowa
Charter School. They were pretty tired from the long weekend filled with great
games. We started with a leading score of 9-2. We ended the first half with
18-17. We lost our lead during third quarter with some turnovers. The finals
core is 33-50. Our top scorers include Mya Malone with 13 points and 18
rebounds, Stacy Vargas with 9 points, and Victoria Baca with 7 points. We look
forward to a rematch next week.

The Bisons had a bye on Friday of the tournament and received a well earned

against Rhode Island School for the Deaf. The Bisons came out quick and didn’t
look back from there and beat Rhode Island 61-23 to advance to the championship
game. An excellent display of teamwork was shown by the Bisons. Nick Barrus led
the team with another near triple double of 19 points, 13 rebounds and 6
assists, Isa Habeeb had 18 points, Ryan Brzezinski 11 points, Saul Alvira 5
points and Kassim Kassim and Ethan Antone had 4 points for the Bisons. The team

game against Rochester on Sunday. Go Bisons!

On Sunday the Bisons took on Rochester for the championship game of the

made the trip to Rochester. The Bisons were looking for some payback and that’s
exactly what they achieved. The team beat Rochester 59-52 and were crowned
champions of the ESDAA tournament. The team stuck together and worked for what
they wanted, to bring back a championship to St. Mary’s. Nick Barrus led the
Bisons with 19 points, Ryan Brzezisnki had 13 points, Kassim Kassim 12 points,
Isa Habeeb 11 points and Saul Alvira and Ethan Antone each had 2 points. The
team is ecstatic about winning the championship and we are all very proud of
them. Thank you to everyone who watched from home and supported us. The team has

Fremont JV football team against Washington
varsity team?

Unusual?

No, way back in the 1950’s the
South Carolina varsity team played
against North Carolina’s JV team.

And Washington football has an interesting
history. In 1961 their varsity team fought
LaCenter HS JV team to a tie. The angry
Washington varsity then challenged LaCenter
varsity to a game on an open date.

And yes, Washington won!

So, are we saying that LaCenter JV
is better than LaCenter varsity???????

Steve Blehm again in a newspaper story

part of newspaper story

At the Ramsey County Tournament Jan. 27, 1971, held in the Starkweather
gymnasium, Steve Blehm, playing for the Devils Lake School for Deaf
Bulldogs, scored 85 points in a game against Hampden with the final score
122-22. By the time he graduated from high school his total scores in 94
official games had reached 3,859 points.

Blehm received a 1972 national “Athlete of the Year” award from
Gov. Arthur A. Link. The award was sponsored by the National Fraternal
Society of the Deaf.

note:
Blehm enrolled at Minot State University (NCAA-II program), planning
to play basketball there – but after a semester, transferred to
Gallaudet.

random DeafSports thoughts

When hearing players look back on their high school
basketball careers, what do they remember the most?

Their games against deaf schools.

They realize deaf players are just as human
(and just as smart) as they are!

In one case, after a game, a deaf girls team
sat together with the hearing team for a
post-game meal at a school cafeteria. These
hearing girls quickly realized these deaf girls
were the same as they are! It was profiled in
a newspaper story by a middle-aged hearing
woman who never forgot a game her team played
against the deaf school many years back.

This is what sports is all about – deaf vs
hearing.

UFC Fighter Jon Jones won his match last night.

He is now 26-1 for his career.

It is nice knowing that his sole defeat was to a past
deaf UFC fighter Matt Hamill.

Yes, Jones would have already had that match easily won
except for an illegal hold that disqualified him.

Angry Jones wanted to have that defeat removed from
his record since it was a diqualification, but the
UFC people would not allow it!

random DeafSports thoughts

DeafDigest Sports used to get involved with
spring sports – track, baseball, softball and
tennis.

Not anymore. Why?

In track, Berg/Seeger does the job of recognizing
Deaf Athletics (track and field)

In baseball, there is Hoy which does the job of
recognizing Deaf Baseball

In softball, there is Hoy which does the job of
recognizing Deaf Softball (fast pitch). Among
some EAAD schools, there are invitational slow
pitch tournaments. Fast pitch and slow pitch
are two different things

In tennis, how many deaf schools field tennis
teams?  In the past it was about 4-5 schools.

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to John T. Jacobs,
an all-time Gallaudet great in football and wrestling
(mid-fifties).

With the Gallaudet football team, he was a 60-minute player
as the center on the offensive line and as middle linebacker
on defense. He was the quarterback with the Texas SD football
teams but was shifted to the offensive line at Gallaudet.

And despite never having wrestled in the past, he was never
pinned in his entire wrestling career under legendary coach
Thompson Clayton.

He was also a great baseball player; unfortunately Gallaudet
had no baseball teams in the early fifties.

He was inducted into the Gallaudet athletic hall of fame
in 1998.

His son Bill was one of the five stalwart members of the Gallaudet
offensive line that steered Gallaudet to a winning 6-4 record
in the 2009 season. Gallaudet was almost invited to play in the
ECAC Division III southern championship playoffs.

Florida boys’ basketball

Hello Dragon Fans.  We hosted two games this week to end our season.  We came
away 1-1.

In the first game vs FBCA-PC (Palm Coast), we got off to a quick start and
maintained our 8-12 point lead for the majority of the night.  We won 59-43.
All 8 players we dressed logged double digit minutes in this game and scored a
point.

The next night, we faced BHCS (St. Augustine).  Once again, we had only 8
players dress for the game. They beat us in the pre-season game, and we beat
them at their home court in December.

They have this 6’5″ Senior transfer from Creekside who is the best player we
have faced all season.  Tonight, he was too much for us to handle as he poured
in 33 points and nabbed 19 rebounds.

We got up to a healthy 6-8 point lead for most of the night until that guy
decided to turn it up several notches.  He played phenomenally and his
supporting cast made some timely baskets in the 4th quarter to pull away from
us.

We mounted a valiant comeback in the last few minutes, but fell short 52-54.  It
wasn’t the best way to end our season, but we’ll take a 11-8 record after
finishing .500 last season.  This is something we can build on.

2/3 vs First Baptist Academy- Palm Coast.  W 59-43.
Halftime score: 31-21
Rebs: Matthew G 19, Douglas 10, Marcus G 8, Cabrera 7
Assts: Douglas 5, Matthew G 3
Pts: Douglas 14, Matthew G 12, Merced 10, Roberson 9

2/4 vs Beacon of Hope. L 52-54.
Halftime score: 26-22
Rebs: Douglas 8, Matthew G 7, Marcus G 7
Assts: Douglas 8, Roberson 4, 3 players with 2
Pts: Merced 20, Roberson 16, Matthew G 10

Season Record: 11-8

Fremont girls’ basketball

Fremont Tsunami

A tsunami ensued following a Shaelyn Johnson 3 point buzzer beater to
raise CSD Fighting Eagles over Holy Names 41-40 in the 9 o’clock
hour of Senior Night! CSD bleachers emptied like a giant wave rolling
onto the basketball floor & piling onto the team & Shaelyn Johnson
somewhere on the bottom. Cheerleader/basketball convert, Johnson,
scored the first two three pointers and last three pointer of the
game (13 points) to give CSD second place (9-2) in the BCL.

Senior, Jhada Meyer & Talia Boren each had 11 rebounds. Senior Esther
Biser led all scorers w/14 points & Boren racked up 10.

CSD will once again face Holy Names in a 7:00 PM semi-final BCL Tournament
game @ CSD Thursday February 13. CSD will be minus Shaelyn Johnson
due to prior a commitment, but promises to have other Eagle tricks under their wings.

From an observer

this is a Quality Win!

Last night our varsity boys had a huge win over the Fort Hill Sentinels.  They
are a public school with an enrollment of 750-800 students.  They have storied
history and traditions in both football and basketball.  They have won 29
state championships in various sports.

random DeafSports thoughts

Is the competitive level at Clerc
tougher than competitive levesl
at some local high school districts?

Yes. There have been some schools that
are doing very well with ther local
high school competition – yet struggle
at Clerc!

Same thing with these NCAA Big Dance
games!

So Clerc teams better than local high
school teams? Debate will go on and
on and will never end.
