Maryland football

part of newspaper story

Ravens’ 7-on-7 passing tournament

Sunday’s tournament attracted 32 teams from across the east
coast, including Frederick, Maryland School for the Deaf,
Oakdale, Tuscarora, Urbana and Walkersville.

note:

Maryland baseball & track

MSD multi-sport speed demon Perry headed for Deaflympics in Turkey

On the football field, Maryland School for the Deaf’s Brady Perry

has pulled away from would-be tacklers with ease.

On the baseball field, he’s legged out infield hits. And on the track
he’s won plenty of races.

note:

how could a spring athlete practice baseball and track at the same time?
It was explained that he practices baseball daily, and with track,
since he is a sprinter, his practice time is much shorter as opposed
to baseball.

deaf hockey

Glenwood’s Benson recalls winning gold at Deaf Hockey Championships

Following years of hard work on the ice and in the weight room, Glenwood
Parks and Recreation worker and recently promoted rink manager Troy Benson
claimed a gold medal at the Deaf Hockey World Championships in Amhurst, N.Y.,
April 29 with a 6-3 win over Canada in the final game.

note:
How many deaf individuals are rink managers? This one is a rink manager.
Not easy being a rink manager, communicating with angry hockey coaches
and angry figure skaters, needing ice time for themselves! And making
sure the hockey rink is in good shape at 2 AM when teams practice
at such an unholy hour.

MSD’s Anderson welcome addition to FSK Legion team

Maryland School for the Deaf pitcher Stefan Anderson wanted to keep
playing baseball the rest of the summer. He didn’t want his season to
end with the Orioles’ spring season.

So when Frederick’s Francis Scott Key Post 11 American Legion Baseball
team announced tryouts on a bulletin board at McCurdy Field earlier this
spring, Anderson saw it and was quick to sign up.

Minnesota track

part of newspaper story

MSAD

Kyrell Cummings will have a busy week representing the Minnesota State
Academy for the Deaf team, as he’s in four events for sections.

Cummings advanced to sections in the triple and long jumps again.
He’s the No. 6 seed in the long jump at 19-09, but has jumped 20

feet his season. Cummings has the No. 2 mark in the triple jump at
42-06, which is 11 inches off state standard. He’ll have to
watch out for BA’s Hunt as well, who has jumped above 42-05 a
couple times this season, even if his seed mark was below
that.

Cummings is the third seed in the 110 hurdles at 16.76.
He’s sixth in the 300 hurdles in 43.13.

Needs one more boys & girls teams for
Clerc Classic XVIII in January 2018

Model Secondary School for the Deaf will be hosting the Clerc Classic
XVIII tournament in January of 2018 (January 10-14).

After all, you will be in the nation’s capital!

Filling in this slot will complete the tournament. Please contact John
Castrese, MSSD Athletic Director at john.castrese@gallaudet.edu as soon as
possible.

More information will be forthcoming, meanwhile save the date!

Fremont sports

It’s a big week!  Today we have our senior night in softball against
Livermore Valley Charter Prep and today will also determine the league
championship because we both are 8-1 and we do not have a league softball
playoffs yet.  Then we host the league baseball playoffs this year and our
first matchup is also against LVCP on Wednesday at 3:30pm.

This Saturday, six Track and Field Athletes – Daijuhnae Williams, Calel
Aramboles, Hannah Wetzel, Leonardo Vergara, Raven Lynch, and Ashley
Locatelli were among our top finishers in the league and they will go to
compete in the NCS Class A Championships in Santa Rosa!  Special
recognition goes to Calel for breaking our school’s discus record of
159’10″ that was held by Tim Siaki for 35 long years and Daijuhnae for
breaking her own school record in triple jump with a 37’4.75″ but don’t be
surprised if more records fall the next few weeks.

Athlete of the Week – HANNAH WETZEL.  Our junior Track and Field Athlete
has consistently been an all-around top performer ever since her career
started.  At the League Championships at Kezar last weekend, she went 2nd
place in the High Jump with a 4’7″, 7th place in the Triple Jump with
32’07.05″, and 8th place in the Long Jump with a 14’05″.  We are very
confident that Hannah will continue working hard in the classroom and
throughout the sectionals as always!

Marie Philip track

In Frederick, Maryland, the Athletic Director of the Maryland School for
the Deaf (MSD), Andy Bonheyo, hosted the Eastern Schools for the Deaf
Athletic Association (ESDAA) track and field tournament. The Athletic
Director invited deaf and hard of hearing student-athletes and coaches to
ESDAA from The American School for the Deaf, Pennsylvania School for the
Deaf (ASD), Cleary School for the Deaf (NY), St Mary’s School for the Deaf
(SMSD), New York School for the Deaf – Fanwood, Rhode School for the Deaf,
New Jersey School for The Deaf , Lexington School for the Deaf (LSD), 
Rochester School for the Deaf, Mill Neck Manor School for the Deaf and our
school. They came together to compete against each other at the same time.

On Friday, 3200 meter run and all the field events began at 6:30 pm after
coaches had a brief discussion about points of emphasis for the 3200 meter
run and field events.  They watched the national anthem by MSD Cadets
Corps. The weather was a little cold with a few brief showers. The triple
jump for girls and boys, shot put for boys and discus for girls events
were resumed on Saturday because it was hard to see the measure of the
throw and jump distances in the evening. The deaf and hard of hearing
student – athletes socialized at a social gathering while the coaches had
discussions about Saturday’s field and running events. The three field
events started at 9 o’clock in the morning.  The hurdle and running events
started at noon till 4 pm on Saturday. The rain stopped after 11 am.

The senior student- athlete, Bryce Callahan received two 6th place
finishes for 200 meter dash and shot put. The other 4 MPS track
individuals were ranked below 6th place.

I thoroughly enjoyed teaching my track and field team with types of
throwing, running skills and drills at practice, and also to watch them
competing with others in the track and field competitions through all the 
spring pre-season and season.

My coach assistant, Sara Patterson is proud that Bryce earned two 6th
place finishes in 200 meter dash and shot put especially since his 1st
year track participation during his last year as a senior.  She made two
comments about the Lady Ghost freshmen, Lily Fruguglietti and the 4
Galloping Ghost athletes for a running relay. Lily did an awesome
performance in 200 meter; Jasper, Christopher, Luke and Bryce did a great
job in the 400 meter relay but they didn’t qualify for the final.

I asked my assistant coach and 4 MPS student-athletes, ” What is your most
positive experience of ESDAA track and field tournament?” I have their
comments here.

Coach assistant: I was impressed with competitors from 12 different
schools for the deaf who competed against each other and the smooth MSD
organization for EDSAA track and field tournament.

Jasper: personal growth about competition and performance skills.

Lily: new experience in ESDAA track and field competition and personal
growth.

Bryce: personal growth on track and field and new experience in the big
track and field competition.

Amogne: Meeting with new friends

I want to thank my assistant coach, Sara Patterson, volunteer assistant
coach, Annie Amato for teaching shot put, discus skills, and drills; and
two subs, Mary Grace and Pam Jones for helping me.

Here are the team champions and the results of MPS individuals.

part of newspaper story

The Greater Cincinnati Golf Association had to squeeze every last ounce of
daylight out of Monday, but it got most of the work done at Maketewah
Country Club for America’s largest U.S. Open local qualifier.

A grand total of 168 entrants was whittled down to 10 qualifiers and an
alternate Monday at Maketewah, with one alternate still to be decided
Tuesday morning via the continuation of a playoff that was suspended after
9 p.m.

The playoff, which produced the 10th and final automatic qualifier and
first alternate just after sunset Monday, was called due to darkness.
Rules officials, patrons and competitors were using cell phone flashlights
to locate balls on fairways and greens at that point.

The qualifiers advance to the sectional qualifying round of the 2017 U.S.
Open.

Before darkness enveloped the competition, players lapped up sunshine as
nine qualifier spots were awarded.

Andy Roberts and Trey Shirley tied for the qualifier victory after posting
three-under 68′s on the day.

Andrew Dorn (two-under 69) was alone in third place while Ben Sattler,
Daniel Stanley, Davis Baxter, Kevin Hall and Austin Bagshaw (Eastern
Kentucky) tied for fourth place (minus-one 70).

Baxter is a University of Cincinnati product.

Hall, deaf since the age of two, is a product of Winton Woods and Ohio
State.

There will be a new logo on the Cleveland Cavaliers’ jerseys when they
take the court next season: the Goodyear wingfoot logo

note:

In the late 1910′s and throughout the 1920′s, deaf employees
at Goodyear tire factory had their own semi pro football
team.

The team had an overall winning record and won several
semi pro championships, and had several games with
Akron Pros, an early years NFL team.

Sponsorship? Not one cent from the Goodyear corporate
management, nor praise or acknowledgement from these
executives. In other words, the deaf team was totally
ignored – and there are no markers nor reminders
in the Akron area on the existence of this deaf team.

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.”

Gallaudet baseball in Florida

Gallaudet doubles up Baruch in Spring Break opener, Bison fall against Scranton

FORT MYERS, Fla. – Spring Break got off to a successful start for the
Gallaudet University baseball team on Sunday as the Bison doubled up
Baruch College, 8-4, at Terry Park Sports Complex in sunny Florida.
Gallaudet (5-7) took to the diamond in the afternoon for a second
nine-inning game this time against the University of Scranton. The Royals
(5-3) got the best of the Bison with a 17-9 victory.

John Becker: Tennis coach turned computer guy has Vermont Dancing

John Becker could have ended up being a lot of things other than a
Division I basketball coach. A computer wizard. A part-time Division III
coach. A longtime assistant coach. Someone who never played the sport, but
one who coached tennis at Gallaudet.

paragraph on Gallaudet:
Blake Phillips (Dalton, Ga.), a senior from Gallaudet University, has been
selected as the NEAC Baseball Pitcher of the Week. Phillips tossed a
complete game two-hit shutout against Clarks Summit on Mar. 4, helping the

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.

college deaf athletes

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?

Gallaudet sweeps Valley Forge on Opening Day

WASHINGTON – It was a picture perfect Opening Day for the Gallaudet
University baseball team and the Bison didn’t disappoint their sun-soaked
fans here Sunday with a sweep of University of Valley Forge at Hoy Field.
GU won the first game 13-5 and rallied to score 12 runs in the bottom of
the sixth in a 16-4 victory as the game was called for darkness

full story at:
http://www.gallaudetathletics.com/sports/bsb/2016-17/releases/recap_uvf

DeafDigest Sports editor’s comments:

DeafDigest Sports editor watched the first game. While Gallaudet
pulled ahead 5-0 by the end of third inning, there was a big
concern – two starters were injured and taken out of the game.
Yet, the Gallaudet bench rose to the occassion and contributed
mightily to these two wins. Rookie Austin Sliva-Wynne, whose
father was a great Gallaudet pitcher way back in the nineties,
is extremely versatile with a great arm. He started at right
field and threw out a runner that tried to advance from
second to third! And when the starting pitcher tired and
gave up three runs in the fifth inning, Austin took over
as the relief pitcher, and while he was a bit wild, stemmed
the opponent’s rally. And in the second game, he started
at shortstop, his third position of the day!

………………………………………………

Gallaudet softball

DeafDigest Sports editor watched parts of the softball
practice that was taking place at the same time with
the baseball game. Both fields sit next to each other.

The team was finally able to practice outdoors after
being confined to indoor practices because of the
cold weather. It was the first time the women were
able to run the bases, practice on these trap and
cut off plays and to chase the fly balls. The
team practiced for weeks without their best
player – Kelsey Hudson, who was busy playing
basketball. She will rejoin the team this week
as the basketball season is over.

It is Justen Burns’ first season as head coach
after serving as assistant the past few seasons.

Team roster is at:

past head Gallaudet men’s basketball coach

Gallaudet has a number of past coaches that moved
on to other coaching positions at other colleges
(John Becker and Kevin Cook). Here is another one:

His first stop was an assistant, then the head coach, at Gallaudet, a
private university in Washington D.C. for the education of the deaf and
hard of hearing.

Missouri girls’ basketball

Today we played the Wisconsin School for the Deaf Lady Firebirds. We lost
the game 36-38 making our record 2-14. It was a tough game. We were up
15-6 at the end of first quarter. We did everything right and forced
Wisconsin to make mistakes. Second quarter, however, they came back and we
were only leading by a basket at halftime. We played well in third quarter
but got into some foul trouble. We got a comfortable lead and at the end
of third quarter it was 33-20. Delanzia Hayes fouled out with 6:59 left in
the game leaving us playing 4 on 5. We were able to hold them but at 4:00
Melissa Davis then fouled out. We did the best we could playing 3 on 5 but
it was difficult. Wisconsin slowly caught up to us making the winning
basket at 17.3 seconds. We played our hearts out but ultimately, having
only five players proved to be detrimental. Wisconsin had a long bench and
was able to swap out players when we weren’t. While we did make mistakes,
I couldn’t ask a single thing more fro
m any of my players. It took us getting down to three players for
Wisconsin to beat us on the floor. I can’t complain! Even with five
players, we have been competition to every team we’ve played. We work hard
but we make sure the other team is, too. It was extremely emotional today
and with good reason. But I told the girls we need to focus on the
positives. Elizabeth Harrison achieved her fifth double-double (third in a
row) today with 11 points and 14 (over 50% of the total) rebounds. Every
player scored. Even playing four on five we were able to hold Wisconsin
from scoring. We never gave up. Despite exhaustion, fatigue, injuries, and
sickness, we kept playing. Of all sixteen games so far this season, this
is the first time having only five players really hurt us. We proved to
every single team we’ve played that just because we’re small, doesn’t mean
we go down easy. I know I say this all the time but I truly could not be
prouder of this team. This will surely be a team I will never forget. We
have another game on Monday February 13 against Fulton St. Alban’s at 4:30
pm.
