Marie Philip track

MPS track and field (T&F) team went to New York School for the
Deaf-Fanwood for the track and field competition in White Plain, New York,
just north of New York City.  MPS competed against 5 opposite deaf track
and field teams and one hearing track and field team and they were: NYSD-
Fanwood, American School for the Deaf, Pennsylvania School for the Deaf,
Mill Neck School for the Deaf, New Jersey School for the Deaf and El
Academy.

MSP T&F team was not used to running on Fanwood’s oval running track
with gravels, but they positively ran on the gravel track through the
running events. The three reasons that Galloping Ghost T&F athletes had
great experiences at Fanwood meet were to socialize with the five
different deaf track and field teams, feel challenging to race with them
and improve their speed times for ready ESDAA Track and Field
Championship.

past Gallaudet cross country & track star

dedication – May 2007

   DeafDigest dedicates this edition to Francis Huffman,
LaGrange, Illinois who departed us earlier in the week.
   He was enshrined into the Gallaudet Athletic Hall of
Fame, for his prowess in cross country and track.
   What made this induction interesting was that he
never took part in track and cross country prior to
enrollment at Gallaudet.
   His classmates practically pushed him into it
(or perhaps it was arm-twisting). Yet Francis somehow
became one of the greatest runners Gallaudet has
ever had.
   He could have been a hero in the Deaflympics
except that he competed during World War II years
when international events for the deaf was suspended.
And when Deaflympics was revived in 1949, he was
already too old to do a comeback.

Japanese pro basketball team

part of story

The Shizuoka Gymrats’ dream has been going on now for some seven years, as
they hit the court as the only Japanese team in the independent American
Basketball Association (ABA). However, the going has been tough. They
finished the season ending in March this year with a 2 and 18 win/loss
record, and keeping the team afloat financially isn’t easy. Nevertheless,
player and team owner Takuya Okada, 40, is determined “to train players
from Japan to compete on the world stage.”

the reference to the deaf is this:

The Gymrats roster is a collage of different backgrounds and ages,
including university students, people who have worked regular jobs, and
members of Japan’s national deaf basketball team.

Nissan renews sponsorship of inspiring Fahad Al Abdullatif

What makes this result special is that Fahad is deaf. This means he faces
many additional layers of difficulty when competing against hearing
competitors, even before he gets to the starting line of an event.

http://saudigazette.com.sa/life/drive/nissan-renews-sponsorship-inspiring-fahad-al-abdullatif/

note:

we have a number of deaf auto racers in various racing
categories – but they all have one thing in common -
difficulty in getting sponsorship funds. We do not
see Nissan giving money to deaf drivers in USA!
This Saudi Arabian deaf racer is fortunate.

Kioney Alvira- Juardo took 1st place in 3 events and her fellow rookie
Kearah Kelly took a 1st place and a 2nd place in her individual events. 
All in all, the entire team had a great day out on the track and made a
good 1st impression by beating our opponent 64-0.  Our next meet is next
week Tuesday at home.

experience playing on Gallaudet’s gorgeous facilities, seeing the campus
and networking.

Athlete of the Week – YADIRA PACHECO.  This hard working center fielder is

in school and participates in FEAST competitions so she has balanced her

Matt Calamare, Blossburg, PA, is deaf and he is a pro wrestling
referee!

Sometimes he uses one of the ASL-fluent wrestlers as his
interpreter in the ring. Other times he uses forceful
gestures that all wrestlers and fans understand.

He is considered an unusual referee because we do not
find deaf referees in pro sports. High school yes; college,
yes, but not in the pros in any sport!

Yes, pro wrestling is fake and staged but it continues
to be popular with the fans.

where are they from? Do not know

#4 – re the high school all star game; it more likely
was DeafDigest Sports All-Americans’ All-star game.
