Valencia nets career-high 45 points in 81-80 loss to Immaculata

FREDERICK, Md. – Junior guard Noah Valencia (Fremont, Calif.) poured in a
career-high 45 points here Saturday in the MMI Tip-Off Tournament
consolation game but it wasn’t enough to lift the Bison to victory over
Immaculata University at Hood College. The Mighty Macs hung on to win
81-80 in the tournament sponsored by Mid-Maryland Musculoskeletal
Institute Division of the Centers for Advanced Orthopaedics.

The Bison led by two points, 75-73, with 2:47 left in regulation before
Immaculata knotted the game at 75. The Mighty Macs pulled ahead 80-75
before GU tried to rally in the waning seconds. Freshman Corey Smith
(Miami, Fla.) made a layup with 26 seconds on the scoreboard to cut the
margin to three, 80-77. Smith finished with 12 points.

Valencia was named to the all-tournament team for his efforts during the
two-day tournament.

45 points in one game is not a Gallaudet record. The record is 47
points held by Kevin Milligan in the 1964-65 season.

random deafsports thoughts

One of DeafDigest Sports editor’s interest is maintaining
a list of deaf professional baseball players, current
and past (both majors and minors).

He once made a trip to the Baseball Hall of Fame library
at Cooperstown, NY, hoping to do some research, if any,
on these deaf baseball players.

Yes, you guessed it right; the library was shut down
for repairs and renovations!

Football, soccer and volleyball All-American honors

All invited schools have been contacted by DeafDigest Sports
editor for their nominations (football, soccer and volleyball).

Other schools that have never contributed news to
DeafDigest Sports have not been invited.

There have been some non-responses from the invited schools.

The announcements, for each fall sport, will be announced in
due time.

If and when the announcements have been made, if you see
schools not on the All-American list, then non-responses
may be the reason.

Thank you for understanding.

we will have a breakfast buffet on Saturday morning to recognize
members of our first football team (1969).

They will also be recognized at halftime of our football game.

The following members of 1969 team will be at the buffet.

Ralph Lusby, Jr.
Gregory Heller
Larry Johnson
Ben Markel
Andrew Parker
Randy Renchard
Mike Stinebaugh
Billy Bowman
Mark Ames
Donald Boone

note: this pioneering group of players played the first football
game in school history – against the wrong team! They were
defeated 60-6 by the very strong Virginia School for the Deaf
and Blind team. The game, taking place at McCurdy Field in
Frederick, MD was witnessed by a packed crowd.

Virginia (unbeaten) shared the National Team of the
Year honor with another unbeaten team Illinois SD.

In that group, the best player was Larry Johnson. Mike
Stinebaugh, the quarterback, had a rifle arm. This
inexperienced team was able to win one game that season.

The MSD football program was started by superintendent
David Denton, himself an avid football fan and was
an assistant coach with the 1960 North Carolina School
for the Deaf team that finished runnerups in the state
championship finals.

DeafDigest Sports editor, as a young man, was one of
the fans at that game with Virginia.


random deafsports thoughts

In the 1969 season, Maryland SD was the “new football
kid” on the block. Other schools which fielded teams
that season were American SD, New York SD (Fanwood),
Pennsylvania SD, West Virginia SD, Nebraska SD (closed),
Arizona Schools for the Deaf and Blind, New York State
SD (Rome), St Rita School for the Deaf, Virginia SD and
Kentucky SD

All of these above mentioned schools no longer field
football teams.

Times have changed!

Fremont sports

After a great Senior Night game, the Varsity Football and Cheerleading
team is back in the NCS Playoffs and will travel to Fort Bragg on Friday
in an attempt to continue our great season.  The Volleyball team ended
their season in a loss against Berean Christian completing a memorable
season in which they won a school record 26 games!  Many female athletes
will begin with basketball tryouts this week and we will release the
schedule in due time when it is ready however the first game will not be
until after the fall break.  Finally, the Cross Country team has their
final league meet tomorrow before heading into the BCL Championship and
the NCS.  Good luck everybody!

Athlete of the Week – HAN MYAT.  This young man has never been late to or
missed a practice this year.  He signed up the year to be a manager but
then began to show up in his helmets and pads.  Since he is also one of
our hardest working player.  He deserves to score a touchdown at the
recent game.

Athlete of the Week – JADA AND JADE DAWSON.  The love of the game is seen
often through the sisters. Our season ended earlier than we thought and we
can’t let the opportunity to recognize the sisters who has given it all.

Our senior, middle blocker, Jada Dawson wears her love for volleyball on
her sleeve and always ignites passion in games.  Her commitment to the
game is always apparent, she usually is the last one to leave practice.
Desire to understand more about the game, has higher understanding which
gives her ability to coach her teammates. She has evolved to a leader and
consistent force this season. Jada holds 14 top ten records in volleyball
and it is due to her work ethics and commitment to the game.

Feisty yet steady describes her game, her killer service aces have given
us some nice cushion in our games. Jade Dawson is also often the last one
to leave the gym, practicing with her sister. The setter, who hit her 1000
career assists this season has the hands. Her hard work in improving her
service and defense and accommodating different style of hitters among her
team has delivered some beautiful plays this season. Jade has 12 top ten
records in volleyball as well.

The sisters have given us great four years and is deserving of this honor
for all their commitment and service to the volleyball program.

Marie Philip School Volleyball playoffs report.

Date: Monday October 29, 2018
Location: Landmark School, Beverly, MA
Result: MPS 3, Landmark 1 (20-25, 25-18, 26-24, 25-16)

Today the #5 seeded Marie Philip School Lady Ghosts traveled to the #4
seeded Landmark School for the first round of the Independent Girls’
Conference playoffs.  We were missing three players today but our players
put the team first and refused to give up on the match.  We knew Landmark
had a very strong home court advantage and we also knew if we could win a
set there then we would have a chance to win the match.

In the first set we committed 5 service errors and several
miscommunication errors that ruined great passes and gave the Vikings free
points.  A comeback attempt fell short and Landmark won the first set

Between sets the coaches told the girls that we couldn’t give them free
points through service errors.  We also reviewed our defense and how to
counter Landmark’s attacking and free balls.  Our players were perfect in
their serving for the rest of the game – we made zero errors in the final
three sets!!!  Our consistency surprised the Vikings in the 2nd set and we
took it 25-18.

We swapped to the same side of the court we struggled with in the first
set for our third set.  Landmark had an early lead, but to their surprise
the Lady Ghosts became more consistent and slowly chipped away at their
lead.  We were able to outlast them 26-24 to take the 2-1 lead.

Our digging defense and hustle play starred in the fourth set.  We won it
25-16 to win the match 3-1 for our first ever IGC playoff match win.

Everyone starred in today’s game.  Freshman Zora Elliott-Mendelsohn, 7th
graders Rita Child and Chloe Martin, and 6th grader Faith Kirlis all
played their BEST games of the season!!!  Zora had 11 kills and 2 blocks,
Rita had 13 service points, 2 kills, and 3 digs, Chloe set her season high
with 9 assists, and Faith had 3 receptions and her left side defense was
impenetrable.  The other five players were all superb and supported each
other on the court and from the bench to put the team first and help us
win today.  This was the best match I have coached in my five years for
MPS.  Our girls were incredible today.

Our IGC league semifinals is tomorrow at 4 P.M.  We will visit the #1
seeded Montrose School, where we defeated them earlier this season 3-1.
This season has been a great ride so far and we will do our best to extend
it for as long as possible.  Our overall record is 16-11 and our league
record is 7-6.

19 Kills and 16 Assists
19 Aces, 88% serving, and 60 service points
2 Blocks
9 Digs and 24 Errors
20 Receptions and 20 Errors

random deafsports thoughts

for one deaf football player for the past three seasons,
it was fun for him.

Two years ago – played 8 man football

Last year – played 11 man football

This season – played 6 man football

He transfered two times, meaning full exposure
to different types of football

His current coach said:

more fun for him!

Seniors go out on top with 9-0 homecoming win to cap season

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University women’s soccer team closed out its
2018 season with a 9-0 shutout against Trinity Washington University under
the lights at Hotchkiss Field on homecoming weekend Saturday night.

Gallaudet’s seniors shined on Senior Day as the duo of forward Brittany
Mallach (Milton, Ontario) and midfielder Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.)
combined to scored seven of the nine goals. The pair also assisted on two
goals each. Mallach, the all-time leading scorer in Gallaudet history,
left her mark as she scored five goals and two assists in her final game.

Gallaudet dances past Alfred State to victory on homecoming

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University football team and 3,185 alumni,
students, faculty, staff and supporters danced the afternoon away on a
cold, wet and breezy Saturday as they celebrated a 13-9 Bison victory at
Hotchkiss Field over Alfred State College in an Eastern Collegiate
Football Conference (ECFC) game on homecoming weekend.

Gallaudet (3-3, 3-1 ECFC) took the lead for good from Alfred State (0-8,
0-4 ECFC) late in the third quarter, when junior slot Damonte Bray
(Clinton, Md.) scored on a 14-yard run into the end zone. Bray’s score
capped off a five-play, 75-yard drive that took just over two minutes.

The Bison defense stepped up in the fourth quarter and kept the Pioneers
out of the end zone. Alfred State’s first possession in the fourth quarter
was a quick three-and-out followed by a six-play drive that covered nine
yards. Senior linebacker Demontrai Lewis (Trinity, Texas) sacked Pioneer
quarterback Carter Harman for a loss of four yards on that drive.

Georgia football, we player a very good Louisiana team Saturday. Due to

St Mary’s volleyball

The lady Bisons traveled to Fanwood this weekend for the annual ESDAA
volleyball tournament. Friday they participated in round robin play that
set them up for bracket play on Saturday. The girls finished 5th overall
in the tournament and Cameron Cole was named to this years allstar team.
Congratulations to all our players on a great tournament and season.

Game break downs are as follows:

SMSD v. Fanwood
The lady bisons came out strong in the competitive match. Elsie Watson
lead the team with 4 service points in this one set match. Emma Foster had
3 digs and Cami Cole had another two which helped the girls win 25-23
against Fanwood.

SMSD v. Marie Phillips
The lady Bisons took on the number 1 seeded team in their second match.
The girls struggled to stay in their groove against MP and ended with a
14-25 set score.

in their third set, the girls took on a very young Delaware team.  Due to
their inexperience, the lady Bisons had an easy time taking on DSD and
showed great sportsmanship by ?missing? a few key plays and serves to give
them more of a fighting chance. Julia Bronnenberg had an impressive 8
service points in a row before her first ever attempt at over hand
serving. The lady Bisons won 25-16 for their second win of the round

SMSD v. Lexington
For their final match up of the day the lady Bisons took on Lexington
school for the deaf in a very close battle. After some long volleys and
some great teamwork the girls fell in an impressive 19-25 game. Cameron
Cole had 2 attacks and one kill while Julia Bronnenberg added in 2 attacks
and 2 kills of her own. Emma Foster had 3 great digs but it just wasn?t
enough to get past Lexington.

Saturday morning, the lady Bisons took on their rivals, the lady wildcats
from RSD in a best of three matchup. The girls new this would be a battle
as they?ve already faced the wildcats twice this year. The first game the
lady Bisons came out ready to play. And held RSD to a 19-25 set.  Julia
Bronnenberg was a sniper at the service line and managed 3 service points

Gallaudet homecoming day football games means a lot
to players, alumni, administration, parents, friends
and the administration.

Yesterday’s win over Alfred State was made possible
by a last ditch defensive stand that prevented them
from scoring the winning touchdown in the dying

DeafDigest Sports never forgot the 25-14 homecoming
day win over DC Teachers College in 1970.

Gallaudet was leading 19-14, when DC Teachers
College was marching down the field in the dying
seconds. At that time DC Teachers College was a
bitter cross-town rival of Gallaudet and both
teams loved to beat each other in football.

Anyway, the DC Teachers College attempted a pass;
middle linebacker Tom Bastean, smelling a pass,
dropped back and intercepted it – and ran about
75 yards for the touchdown that put the game
out of reach. It was Gallaudet’s second win of
the season. Next week, Galladuet defeated American
University in the last game of season to make it
a 3-win season. It was Gallaudet’s most wins in a
season since the great 6-1-1 record in 1930!

DC Teachers College? It was absorbed into the
University of District of Columbia system.

6-man football rules

The football coaches in the Great Plains Schools
for the Deaf voted to follow real 6-man rules
for the 2019 football season. It was a majority

This means no more 6-man football with 8-man rules

What this means is that the quarterback must pitch out
the ball instead of handing off the ball (which is
allowed in 8-man and 11-man football).

Also, 6-man football rules allow linemen to catch
forward passes, which is not permitted in 8-man

Other rules are:
– 15 yards for a first down
– QB can catch the forward pass after pitching out the ball
– a PAT kick is worth 2 points
– a field goal is worth 4 points

One of the Great Plains schools said his state
does not have 6-man football, meaning referees
in the state may not understand 6-man rules!


Gallaudet men’s soccer

Second-half goals propel Gallaudet to victory over Cazenovia

CAZENOVIA, N.Y. – Gallaudet University shut out Cazenovia College, 2-0,
here Sunday afternoon in a North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) men’s
soccer match at a chilly Christakos Field.

Gallaudet (6-9, 4-6 NEAC) scored two second-half goals after the teams
played a scoreless first half.

Freshman Dylan Christoffels (Methuen, Mass.) got GU on the scoreboard with
his third goal of the season at the 51:39 mark in the second half. Fellow
freshman forward Chad Johnson (Gardena, Calif.) headed home his 13th goal
of the season, off an assist from freshman defender Julien Cano (Avondale,
Ariz.), at the 78:38 mark to give the buff and blue some breathing room.

Cazenovia (3-12, 2-8 NEAC) held the edge in shots, 14-9, and took more
shots than Gallaudet in the first or second half but could not get a shot
past Bison goalie Shane Angel (Mechanicsville, Md.), who made five saves


Gallaudet women’s soccer

Bison tripped up on the road at Cazenovia

CAZENOVIA, N.Y. – The Gallaudet University women’s soccer team lost, 3-1,
to Cazenovia College here Sunday afternoon in a North Eastern Athletic
Conference (NEAC) match at a chilly Christakos Field.

The two teams scored goals early in the first half before Cazenovia
(11-4-1, 7-2-1 NEAC) netted a go-ahead goal in the 76th minute and an
insurance goal in the 83rd minute to put the game away.

Gallaudet (6-8-1, 4-5-1 NEAC) is still in the conference playoff hunt but
sit in seventh place, currently, and need a win in its last NEAC match on
Wednesday to have a chance to move up. The top six teams in the conference
standings will make the playoffs.

Sophomore midfielder Sharon Castillo (Dallas, Texas) scored her second
goal this season off an assist from senior midfielder Sabina Shysh
(Tucson, Ariz.) in the 19th minute to tie the match at 1-1.

Cazenovia scored the game’s first goal in the 12th minute on a Cassidy
Rattray goal.

The teams remained tied at 1-1 at the half even though Cazenovia held a
12-5 advantage in shots.

In the second half, Gallaudet had limited scoring opportunities and only
got off one shot. Cazenovia logged 16 shots and scored twice off the foot
of Michael Breeze in the 76th minute and Rattray, again, in the 83rd

Junior goalie Silvya Levesque (Ballston Spa, N.Y.) made 12 saves in the


American soccer

Soccer ESDAA Results – American School for the Deaf

ASD traveled to Lexington School for the Deaf on Friday morning to
participate in the annual ESDAA soccer championships. ASD was in pool A
with MPS and WPSD – Very strong opponents.

In the opening game, Johan Garafalo struck first with his fifth goal of
the season (plays mainly defense/sweeper position all year). Tigers
dropped back on defense for remainder of the game, however MPS was able to
get past several defenders and tie the game. Both teams went to a shootout
with MPS taking game one by a score of 1-1 (4-0) over the Tigers.

The Tigers were deflated from the opening game shocking loss and never
gained any traction against an excellent WPSD team losing 3-0 in the
second game of pool play on Friday.

On Saturday the Tigers were placed in the 5th place game by virtue of
finishing 3rd in their pool. Tigers took on NYSD at 11:30 am. The Tigers
displayed a dominating outing with a 4-0 victory over NYSD. Sophmore
sensation Omar Shariff notched a brace (two goals), Johan Garafalo added
his 6th goal of the season and Senior Dylan Mallach capped the scoring
with his third goal of the season.

Johan Garfalo took home an All-Star nod. The team was not sastified with a
5th place finish but they recognized that MPS and WPSD finished 1st and
2nd! Congratulations to all the teams and Thank you to Lexington School
for the Deaf for being a great host!

On Monday October 22 it will be Senior night and the team will recognize
their only senior this year in Dylan Mallach who continues to have an
excellent season as the defensive anchor of the team.

Marie Philip soccer

Marie Philip School were so ready to play for the 4th Annual Eastern
Schools for the Deaf Athletic Association (ESDAA) Soccer Tournament at
Lexington School for the Deaf. Six teams are participated the tournament
as we all played in pool play – each of these teams played two games (40
minutes per game) in one day.

Pool A
Marie Philip School
Western Penn School for the Deaf
American School for the Deaf

Pool B
Lexington School for the Deaf
Ohio School for the Deaf
New York School for the Deaf – Fanwood

Friday, October 19
We played our first game against American School for the Deaf as it was
the first opening game of tournament. Anyway, we were down by one and we
got tied 1-1 as Luke Florio scored the goal that led to the shootout. We
were so confident in the shootout as we got two balls into the net and our
goalkeeper Dakota Rochette stopped four shots.

(MPS won in the shootout 2-0)

MPS played next game against Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf. It
was quite difficult for us to obtain the controlling of the ball as WPSD
kept controlling the possession during the whole game.


However, we were qualified for the semifinal because our record for the
robin round was 1-1 while ASD has lost two games in the pool play.

Saturday, October 20 -
Marie Philip School played the first game of tournament against Lexington
School for the Deaf in the semifinal. We kept pressuring on Lexington
defensive lines, however, we struggled to get the ball into the net. We
had missed quite a lot of opportunities in scoring. Suddenly, Lexington
scored a goal within 6 minutes before the end of game. We refused to give
up as we kept pressuring and our senior player, Kacey Mohanan made a nice
goal from free kick with 2 minutes of the game. We were forced to get into
the shootout again as we did great job in the shootout. Our goalkeeper
Dakota Rochette stopped 3 out of four shots. When he stopped the last shot
to wrap up the shootout, MPS players were overexcited and celebrating as
we had officially entered the ESDAA championship game for the first time
in school history!

(MPS won in the shootout 2-1)

We played the championship game against Western Pennsylvania School for
the Deaf again. We played with our hearts out and put all of our effort in
the whole game. We’ve improved our possession, better than the first
game against WPSD. WPSD led 1-0 in the halftime. We worked hard to stop
WPSD offensive lines from scoring. We tried to score but unfortunately for
us, time had ran out so quick. I can’t lie that WPSD had a good
acceleration. Coaches are very proud of our team as we are very happy to
get 2nd place!

Congrats to Kacey Mohanan, Dakota Rochette and Slavik Sukhotsev for being
selected as members of All-tournament team. Also, our goalkeeper Dakota
Rochette was selected as Goalie of the Tournament.

1st: WPSD

Division 9 playoffs on Saturday.

Pacifica Christian (13-8) will host Riverside California School for the
Deaf in the quarterfinals on Wednesday.


Rochester soccer

Since we were seeded first, we had a bye to the semifinals
(only 7 teams). Our first match was against the winner of RISD
and NJSD. NJSD prevailed by pulling off a 2-1 win against the
host team. We were quite confident in our abilities and knew if
we played our game we would end up on top. However, NJSD had
other plans. Since last year, when we met them in this same
exact game, they have been working hard in the off-season and
it clearly showed during our recent contest. Right from the
whistle, both teams were playing aggressive, offensive minded
soccer. Both teams were battling the middle, working hard to
get shots on goal. Each team had their opportunities outside
the 18, but with experienced goalies in each net, nothing was
getting by for both teams.

Thomas Coates had several shots from far, but none found the
back of the net. However, we were content with the pressure we
were having on them, and knew with patience, and due diligence.
we would break the seal. Near the end of the first half, lo and
behold, Thomas took an outside blast that found the upper 90
and we were ahead 1-0 going into halftime. Even though the
coaching staff was not content with this lead, we knew we just
came off a long car ride, haven’t practiced in a few days, but
as we saw at the end of the first half, we know we were turning
the corner.

We wanted to stay with the same mindset, aggressive Wildcat
soccer. Keep the ball on their side of the field. Don’t sit
back and just defend, defend, defend. That’s how problems
occur. In the second half, we started to see true Wildcat
soccer, the soccer we’ve been working on all season. The
Give-N-Go’s that we’ve been preaching since day 1. We had some
beautiful opportunities in the second half with Alexander
Michalek feeding to Bode who would then pass to Coates, who
would quickly pass back to Aggas. These plays would lead to
some great scoring opportunities. Within a few minutes in the
second half, there it was, a great Give-N-Go by Bode to Thomas
who easily scored on NJSD.

RSD wins 2-0. Radez earns RSD our second bagel of the year, a
team goal we set forth on Day 1. We were back in the
Championship game, something we’ve been working for all season.
Our Ultimate Goal, winning the ESDAA Championship was well
within our reach.

Now, we just sit back and see who we face. Would it be last
year Champions, PSD or our I-90 rival, SMSD?!?! Their game was

Final Score:

RSD: 2

Coates (2)

B. Aggas

Saturday afternoon, a mixture of clouds and sunny blue skies
with a cool temperature of 60 degrees. You couldn’t ask for
better weather in Providence during this time of the year. It
was only fitting that our charter bus companions, SMSD was
going to be what stood in our way from bringing home the
Championship. In our recent match against them, we won pretty
handedly, however, they were missing a few marquee players at
the time. We did not underestimate them one bit as we saw them
take apart PSD in their semifinals game. We knew this game was
going to be a barn burner without a doubt.

Two very well-coached teams with a slew of athletes going at it
with the same goal in mind. SMSD has not won this prestigious
honor in well over a decade, so they were starving to bring it
back to the 716. After last year, we were chomping at the bit
just as much, if not more. We knew both teams would leave it
all on the field this afternoon in front of s standing room
only crowd.

Here we are, 365 days since our loss to PSD in last year’s
championship going against our cross-town rival, SMSD, the very
team we have to drive 8 hours home with.  Again, a mixture of
jitters, nerves, and bad luck (or good luck depending on your
perspective) lead to a standstill for a majority of the first
half.  However, with just under 9 minutes left, SMSD caught us
on our heels. SMSD wingman was dribbling up the side of the
field and was one on one with one of our defenders, and before
we could get in a good position, SMSD sends a beautiful cross
in front of the net, and another SMSD was right there to take a
jumping kick at it which he somehow connected on and found the
back of the net to take a 1-0 lead. DEJA VU! RSD, for the
second straight year is now down 0-1 in the Championship game.
We still had 40 minutes of soccer to play roughly. We don’t
give up. We are Wildcats. WE ARE WILDCATS! When our backs are
against the wall, we RISE UP to the occasion and play even
harder. After a few more missed opportunities on net, we walk
off the field down 0-1 going into halftime.

Coaching staff’s main concern here is to keep the students
optimistic, and understand there is still 30 minutes of soccer
still needed to be played. We needed to focus on what we’re
doing right. We were moving the ball around, winning the
middle. At the same time, we needed to fix the little things,
play our position correctly, trust one another, and play with a
little more urgency in this second half.

What separates a great team from a championship team is a team
that is relentless, gritty to the final minute, and most
importantly, receptive to feedback from their teammates and
coaching staff. If you have a team that is willing to do all
those things, good things are going to happen. We needed to
come out of the gates in this second half with aggressive, RSD
Wildcat Soccer if we wanted to stand a chance against this SMSD

The second half begins and we were just looking better as a
whole. Within 4 minutes into the second half, we were awarded a
corner kick. Bode Aggas shoots a beautiful shot right in front
of the goal, chaos ensues, Gentzke gets a touch on it, pinball
ensues from there as the ball bounces off a couple SMSD
defenders before it finds the back of the net. RSD TIES THE
GAME 1-1! The team is pumped up and the adrenaline is running
on full throttle at this point. The seal is broken. Hopefully,
this one goal would open the flood gates.

A few moments later, Thomas takes a shot 30 yards out, a
beautiful rainbow that clears their goalie’s hands, but would
it drop under the post, and it does!!!! Just like that RSD
takes a 2-1 lead in the championship game. RSD has battled back
ad has put them in good position but there will still plenty of
time left on the clock.

At this point, RSD was playing a little more cautious , so our
attempts on net were not as abundant at this time, but we were
keeping the ball in the middle of the field, not the best
place, but as long as it’s out of striking distance from our
net, the coaching staff was content. With time dwindling, SMSD
made some on the fly adjustments as we expected, since they
needed to score. They were pressuring us a lot more, but our
defense stayed poised and was able to clear out anything that
got within striking distance. On one last attempt by SMSD, it
was only fitting that Thomas Coates steals the ball, and clears
it out of bounds where the clock finally hit 0:00.00. RSD
became ESDAA DIVISION II CHAMPIONS AGAIN !!!!! A huge weight
was lifted off the shoulders of all our players, and RSD was
back on TOP! It was a great weekend for all involved. Our
students not only played hard, but played with class and
represented RSD very well. We tip our hats to SMSD who also
played a great game and we wish them the best of luck as they
move on to basketball.

Final Score:

RSD: 2




RSD also went on to win the Shooting competition as well.
Earning All-Star honors were Courtney Gentzke and Benjamin
Radez. Earning MVP honors was Thomas Coates

Good luck and Godspeed (as we move on to basketball),


random deafsports thoughts

What is the rarest skill in football as played
in deaf schools?

It is placekicking.

Maryland has a placekicker and it seems he just
almost never misses his points-after-touchdowns

Years ago, Maryland had another placekicker,
primarily a soccer player – and he eventually
played soccer and also kicked extra points
at Gallaudet.

Injuries to 3 key Maryland starters was the reason for two losses
in recent weeks. One injured player came back and while he played
and scored touchdowns, he still was not 100 percent

Mississippi’s Kenmarkis Meeks, said to be the best deaf player
in the nation – either 8-man or 11-man? Maryland stopped
him cold in that game; he is very athletic and super fast
but Maryland was able to contain him

Despite the losing score, Mississippi showed up to play football
last night and they have some fine athletes on the team.

Record: 15-5-1

A 3rd place finish at ESDAA, the best finish for our Spartans and our best

commended for their outstanding season!

End of soccer season.

I know OSD is a better team than our 3rd place finish. We are 1-0-1 vs
WPSD in full game but 0-1 in half game at ESDAA. However I am so proud of
our boys for coming a long way- 4 years ago no program to 1-4-1 to 8-4 and
now 15-5-1. Kevin MacFarland our coach has done an admirable job!

Ohio fielded soccer teams for many years before
establishing a football team. It then went

season in school history.

PSD ESDAA Soccer Div 2 Tournament Result Games weekend, 10/19-10/20

The weekend (10/19 to 10/20), we traveled to Rhode Island School for the
Deaf hosting ESDAA Soccer Div 2 tournament. Our first game was against
NYSSD, and our young boys were so ready to play. PSD boys have overwhelmed
NYSSD 5 to 2. Sophomore Hazim Haroun scored 2 goals and 2 assists, while
our two juniors Jacob Cross and Anel Petion scored a goal each. Our
another sophomore, Michael Greco scored his first career goal, and our
freshman Darnell Godbolt contriubuting with 2 assists.

10/19, the next game was against St. Mary’s. It was a tough game because
we beat them on road to our first championship last year and it was
rematch between us. It was a battle in a whole game but the boys made a
few mistakes that allowed St. Mary’s to score 2 goals against us. We lost
2 to 0. It was a tough game but boys stay positive and move on to
consolation game.

The next day (10/20), we faced our biggest rival MKSD. We have a loss and
a draw against MKSD during this regular season. It was a defense battle
all day and the score was 0 – 0 all the way to one minute left before game
ends. MKSD were caught holding Hazim Haroun while he ran toward goalie. It
gave us opportunity to have plenty kick. The coaches decided to let the
PSD boys to pick a player to do the plenty kick. The PSD boys picked Anel
Petion, and he kicked a beautiful straight to goal and won 1 – 0 victory!

Please give our boys congratulations once you see them in hallway and give
those 2 seniors, Kevin and Arbab, a huge thanks for leading our team this
year! We, the PSD coaches are very proud of them and looking forward to
continue rebuilding with young boys for next season.

random deafsports thoughts

still thinking about the 8-man football team
moving up to 11-man to play a 11-man game.

In past years there have been a few 8-man vs
11-man teams playing 11-man football, and
DeafDigest Sports does not recall a 11-man
team losing to a 8-man team. This does not
mean it will never happen in the future.

The same goes for 11-man teams moving down
to 8-man to play a 8-man team. The 11-man
team, again, usually wins.

Fremont football

Athlete of the Week: JAYVON HARMON – Our sophomore linemen was a newcomer
on the football team and he quickly has emerged in a very solid player
thanks to his commitment to improving his technique and understanding of
the game.  He impressed everyone by studying and drawing plays after hours
and then mastered them during his first start of the season against
Phoenix where he protected our Quarterback all day at Right Tackle and
penetrated the PDSD’s large linemen from the Defensive Tackle position.
Jayvon also excels in Cross Country where he’s known to be well
conditioned.  Congratulations!


Marie Philip volleyball

Marie Philip School Volleyball match report.

Date: Tuesday October 16, 2018

Location: Marie Philip School, Framingham, MA

Result: MPS 3, Newman 0 (25-17, 25-22, 26-24)

Today we hosted the Newman School for an IGC league rematch.  The Cardinal
team are still new to volleyball but they showed some good hustle going
after errant passes and attacking at the net aggressively.  Our players
used the first two sets to adjust to playing without two usual starters
and keeping their momentum going.

Newman improved with each set.  Fortunately for us, after some
encouragement from the coaches and captains after the second set, the
third set was our best one.  Issues with our receiving and digging turned
a 17-11 lead into a 22-17 deficit thanks to patient serving by the
Cardinal #41.  However, we used our final time-out and our players fixed
their errors rather than panicked.  We played our game but gave away a
24-23 match point with a service error.  Newman could not capitalize on a
24-24 tie with their own service error.  We launched an ace to seal the
26-24 set win and 3-0 match win.

Our season record is now 11-6 (5-5 IGC).  Our next match is tomorrow when
we take on IGC #1 ranked Montrose School (6-2) at home at 4 P.M.  We will
do our best to go 2-0 against the Mavericks for the season!

Zora Elliott-Mendelsohn (Fr.) – 6 Aces, 6 Kills, 2 Assists, 2 Digs, and 12
service points
Shayla Rochette (So.) – 5 Aces, 5 Kills, 4 Digs, 2 Receptions, and 7
service points
Chloe Martin (7th) – 1 Ace, 1 Kill, 9 Assists, and 3 service points
Samantha Fernsebner (8th) – 2 Aces, 3 Receptions, and 11 service points

Lily Fruguglietti (Jr.) – 9 Receptions

Rochester soccer

So here we are, the culmination of many hard weeks of
practice and games, all for this one game at Eldrige park
in Horseheads, NY. Game 1 was early on in the season as
RSD defeated Intensity 1-0 on our home field. Later in
the season, in the rematch, which just happened to be
last week, the score was the same on their field,, but
with Intensity taking the game.�
What would you expect in Game 3?!??! A blowout? Keep in mind
the rain was coming down pretty hard out here in Elmira with
the temps dripping down to near freezing. A game where a ball
can take many weird, unforeseen bounces. Let me tell you boys
and girls, this game was for the ages. I’m still in awe of what
transpired yesterday evening. It’s one of those games you wish
you had a videographer on the team so you could rewatch it.�

After traveling over two hours last week for a meaningless
game, there was nothing more in the world that I wanted to come
back here and steal a win against the #1 seed. Our
student-athletes felt the same way and were poised to take them
on head on. Right from the start of the whistle we we were the
ones controlling the tempo.�

First minute in, Thomas makes a beautiful pass for Courtney
just out the 18, she takes a few dribbles, gets by one
defender, DAYLIGHT …pure DAYLIGHT…..just her and goalie,
she takes a shot, Goalie dives, no chance, it’s going to go in.
BONG! The ball hits the upper corner and ricochets out where a
defender easily clears the ball. Game continues. Both teams had
beautiful opportunities to score on net. We had some beautiful
crosses where our offense couldn’t connect on….mixture of
jitters, wet conditions, and bad luck lead to a 0-0 score at
halftime. Exactly the same from our two previous encounters.�

At intermission, we made some good changes on defense to match
up better with their offense. We didn’t need to change anything
else besides finishing our shots and getting our corner kicks
in a spot where we could play them. We were knocking too many
corners out of play, leaving us 0 chance of scoring.�

In the second half, both teams came out strong, both goalies
making some good saves. We were still at a standstill after an
hour of soccer. Then we get another corner kick. Bode Aggas
sends a beaut right in front of the goal, hits the ground,
takes an awkward bounce, HANDBALL HANDBALL, HAND!!!! It clearly
hits the hand of an opposing player, but no whistle. Dead
silence. The game pauses for a quick second before Intensity
kicks the ball out. Unbelievable. However, the game must go on
and we were awarded another corner kick on the opposite side.
Bode, again, passes another great corner ball….hits the
ground, and Mr. Lefty himself boots it into the back of the
net, sending a swarm of white to Dylan who made the goal on net
and give us the 1-0 lead with just under 20 minutes to go. The
crowd was in complete awe. Jaws dropped, and we were on the
cusp of making another historic run in the WNYCAA playoffs.
Could the last seed knock off the 1st seed in the first round
of the playoffs? Less than 20 minutes to go, all we had to do
was hold them here.�

Few minutes go by and you could see our team playing a lot more
defensive. One would think this was a good thing, but not in
soccer. The best defense is a good offense in this sport. By
keeping with a defensive minded strategy, you’re allowing the
ball on your side of the field more often, giving them more
chances. Once we could relay this important information to the
team, we started to play a little more offensive.�

Now the big “HOWEVER….” In 71st minute of the game, Intensity
makes a great pass to their striker who is in a foot race with
our center mid defender. Radez isn’t too sure what to do here,
so he bravely starts to come out of the box to take him on 1 on
1….shot, a slow roller that gets by Radez, we’re tied at 1

Overtime. 1st playoff game 3rd game between these two teams,
with each taking a win from each other, going into overtime. A
10 minute sudden death victory. First team to score is going to
the Championship. You couldn’t write a better script than this.
Packed crowd. The entire opposing sideline was jam packed with
Intensity fans, bundled up in blankets, hoodies, under portable

Overtime begins and both sides are giving their all. Again, we
had some beautiful crosses that just couldn’t find our feet. It
was agonizing to watch, but at the same time, promising as we
knew, we just needed one more goal, one more goal. Then it
happened….On a quick transition from defense to offense,
their star player, Rashad, #9 was in a one on one situation
with Radez. This was going to be our demise. Tragic way to end
the game, but that’s how soccer is. No defender was going to
catch up with Rashad, so it was on Radez to be a hero….As
Rashad approaches the goal, roughly 12 yards out, Radez
charges….Rashad shoots upper left…..Ben dives, CONTACT! He
knocks the ball on a beautiful dive, Rashad drops to his knees,
and Radez covers. Game continues. The game continues. We
escaped that one.�

For the next couple minutes, teams are still fighting tooth and
nail to get that Golden Goal, but with no luck. With just a
minute to go we took our last shot on net, but their goalie
came up big. They drive the ball up , but we quickly knock it
out of bounds a couple times. With just over 20 seconds left,
Intensity takes a shot just inside the 18. Radez is there.
Deflected,� goes slightly behind him, but he quickly catches
it, before he slips and falls to the ground, but maintains
possession. Dead silence. Ben stands up and out of no where,
you hear a whistle. I still have a little over 10 seconds left.
NOOOOOO!!!! Ref signals goal! The ref is no way in position to
have the angle to make that call. The ball may or may not have
completely crossed the line, but due to the situation, there is
no way he could be 100% sure that ball crossed the line. The
refs jet out quickly and that was it.�

A hard fought battle by both teams decided on an extremely
controversial call. We accepted, we walked off the field with
our chins high and congratulated the opposing team. We even
shared some cookies, doughnuts and cider. It’s a shame the game
had to end like that after both teams gave their hearts out
there. What.A.Game!

We battled for 90 minutes and we wanted to battle for another
10 more minutes, but it is what it is. We move on and we now
focus on our ULTIMATE GOAL, bringing home the ESDAA
Championship back from Rhode Island!�

Follow us on Twitter to get all the up-to-date results!�

Final Score:

Intensity: 2
RSD: 1

St Mary’s soccer

Not only was yesterday’s match against Central Academy of Western New
York (CAWNY) our final “warm-up” before this weekend’s annual ESDAA
soccer tournament,  it was also our last regular season game for the
season.  The goal against CAWNY was to work on various game plans that we
are intending to use this weekend in Rhode Island  while at the same time
focusing on correcting some basic mistakes that our team continues to make
in certain situations.  Unfortunately, the majority of our team was still
feeling the after effects from the tournament we participated in last
weekend and struggled to find our legs.  Our NFCAA league opponent who was
battling for a playoff spot came out quickly and scored within the first
few minutes of the match.   That put the Bison’s on their heels for a
majority of the game.  CAWNY was able to notch a few more goals against
our rookie goal keeper and increase their lead by 3 goals. It was going to
be a difficult hole to climb out of.  On a positive
note, Nick Barrus was able to find his scoring touch again and pulled
the Bisons to within a two goals.  However, it was too late in the game
for a dramatic comeback and we ended up losing 4-2.  We head out to Rhode
Island on Thursday late afternoon and our first tournament match is
against the Lions from West Virginia on Friday afternoon at 1:30pm.  Wish
the boys good luck.

Overall Record: 1-7-2

random deafsports thoughts

who is Herb Murphy?

DeafDigest Sports editor never heard of him,
but he is deaf and played major league

Doing some googling, found out his full name was
Herbert Courtland Murphy, but was known as
Dummy Murphy.

He had a long minor league career but played
a short time for Philadelphia Phillies in
1914, but only hit .154 in nine games before
being released. He was a player-manager for
the Sally League team Charlotte Hornets
in 1920 before leaving baseball for good.

He was never mentioned on the list of the
deaf professional baseball players.

Was he really deaf? Or a hearing player with
the unforetunate Dummy nickname?

Did he attend a deaf school and use ASL,
again, do not know.

was our first ever homecoming game for soccer. It was a cold and muddy day
but PSD boys were so excited to play at their home. Hazim Haroun scored
the first goal at the beginning of the game with a beautiful assist pass
from Anel Petion that got entire team and our PSD fans fired up. It was a
very hard fought game but unfortunately, we only have 10 players while
Lexington have 22. Our boys got tired at 2nd half and lost to Lexington 3
to 1.  PSD coaches are very proud of the boys, who have big heart and
leave everything on the field and never giving up until end.

Rhode Island soccer


We traveled westbound on I-90 to Rome, N.Y. to participate in the annual
International Friendship Soccer Tournament — the weather there was quite
colder than what we were accustomed to and the field would be a lot more
muddier and softer, but the competition would be there and our team was
looking forward to it. We opened our tournament against Mill Neck Manor
(who borrowed some players from NYSSD to field a full team). Our spirit
enthusiasm was on full-force for this game — but the muddy field
conditions slowed us down somewhat.

Mill Neck struck first but we responded well and was able to secure a goal
of our own. MNM would add on two more goals on defensive miscommunications
to stake a 3-1 halftime lead. The coaches instilled some urgency in our
team and told them that we were a much better team than what we showed in
the first half — we had to focus on scoring one goal at a time and things
would fall in place.

Our team showed outstanding discipline, patience and executed our
possession gameplan to perfection, completing more than twice as many
passes as we’ve done in any game prior to this one. We were able to score
two more goals in the second half to knot the game up at 3-3 apiece and
threatened to score again only to have time run out on us. Mill Neck
declined to play overtime, so we ended the game with a 3-3 tie and a huge
moral victory for our team.

MNM -  3   0  – 3
RISD -  1   2  – 3

Jayden E. – 2 Goals
Timothy J. – 1 Goal


Hot off our moral victory from yesterday, we look forward to playing the
host team, NYSSD-Rome at 8:30 A.M. on a cold, rainy day morning in what
could be a preview of one of our possible games during the ESDAA Division
II Soccer Tournament.

Our team focused on executing the same game plan as we did last time –
dominate possession, be patient and disciplined while completing passes
pushing the ball into the offensive half. We were able to score a nice
in the first half while missing out on at least 10-15 other shots and
headed off the field with a 1-0 halftime lead.

Our coaches reminded the team that they still had another half left to
and that we’d be switching sides — meaning that Rome would be leading
their offense on the better side of the field while we’d have to work our
attack on the muddier side of the field. So it was critical that we do not
back off on our plan.

Our defense started to tire and wasn’t able to close out on a nice kick by
Rome’s forward that went over our goaltender’s head and into the back of
the net to knot the game up at 1-1 apiece.

Rome added one more goal near the end of the game on a defensive mistake
when one of our defender tried to pass the ball back to the goalie, only
accidentally find the back of our net. We tried to seize momentum back,
missed on a number of shots and let this game slip out of our hands,
2-1. It was a great game on both sides and we look forward to learning
our mistakes for the ESDAA Tournament.

RISD -    1  0  – 1
NYSSD – 0  2  – 2

Timothy J. – 1 Goal

*RISD Soccer Record*: 0-7-1

St Mary’s volleyball

The lady Bisons traveled to Rochester this weekend for their annual
homecoming tournament. The ladies started off a little jet lagged and
rusty from losing a week of practice with our full squad. During the first
night the girls took on both Rochester and Ohio schools for the deaf in a
round robin matchup. The lady Bisons lost first to Rochester in two
straight sets and then Ohio in another two straight.

The lady Bisons then took on Ohio school for the deaf on Saturday in the
first bracketed game of the day. After seeing OSD the night before, the
girls came into this game with a new strategy and a strong constitution.
Julia Bronnenberg lead the team in points all weekend and Elise Watson and
Cameron Cole played big across the court with some amazing saves and
attacks. Emma Foster received her first attack point of the season and
Aleyshka Rivera and Brionna Zappa both came a live to help the team win
some impressive volleys.

Though it was a competitive match, the lady Bisons fell in two sets ending
up in third place overall for the tournament and Cameron Cole was selected
for the all star team. Please congratulate the girls on a job well done as
they continue to improve through out the season.

Quick-strike plays key to Gallaudet’s 35-25 win in home opener

WASHINGTON – Gallaudet University wasted little time on offense Saturday
against Castleton University in an Eastern Collegiate Football Conference
(ECFC) game on a cool, crisp Saturday afternoon at Hotchkiss Field before
637 sun-drenched fans.

Gallaudet (2-2, 2-0 ECFC) turned its methodical triple option offense into
a quick-strike, gut-punch force that scored four times on 60-yard plus
plays en route to a 35-25 victory in the home opener.

Castleton was ranked #3 and Gallaudet ranked #5 in the pre-season
conference poll. Four conference games remain and anything can happen.

Marie Philip volleyball

Marie Philip School Volleyball match report.

Date: Saturday October 13, 2018

Location: American School for the Deaf, West Hartford, CT

Result: MPS 3, ASD 2 (16-25, 25-16, 16-25, 25-8, 15-9)

Today the American School for the Deaf hosted the Marie Philip School
Volleyball team for ASD’s Homecoming.  The MPS coaches experimented with
the lineups for this match and it was hit and miss for us today.  We lost
the first and third sets, and won the second sets, and funnily enough, all
had the score of 25-16.  It was nice to see a great home crowd cheering
the Tigers on to a 2-1 match lead.

We used the 4th set to practice coming back from that deficit in a
pressure environment with our usual lineup.  Lady Ghosts made the most of
it by winning 25-8.

The deciding 5th set was a bit dramatic at the beginning.  We lost the
first serve and ASD’s #11 Emily showed disciplined serving that gave her a
few aces and ASD 6 unanswered points.  We called time-out to straighten
things out.  Right after that, we were able to break that serve.  Sabrina
and Shayla put on their best serving performances of the day and we were
able to take control of the match again.  We won 15-9 to take the match

Kudos to ASD for playing hard and for being great hosts to our volleyball
and soccer teams today.  We look forward to seeing their Tigers again for
the ESDAA tournament in two weeks from now.  Our season record is now 10-5
(4-4 IGC league).

Maryland cross country

newspaper story

Prep Report: MSD’s revived cross-country program growing, improving

Last fall, Maryland School for the Deaf had a cross-country team for the
first time since the early 1990s.

Well, the word “team” was a little misleading at first.

“One [runner] wanted to try,” Orioles coach Randy Shank said. “So I
set it up with one.”

But other runners soon joined. Not a slew of them, of course.

Being a small school, MSD doesn’t have too many athletes to spare in the
fall, when most of them play for the school’s perennially powerful
football and volleyball teams.

But there was enough interest to sustain the cross-country program, which
is now in its second season since being revived.

The program gives MSD students another path toward earning a varsity
letter. And like their cross-country brethren at other schools, runners
can derive the satisfaction of making progress, however slightly, in their

“They enjoy it. The kids are hungry,” Shank said. “They want to run,
they want to improve. Lowering their times, they get all excited.”

It’s been awhile since such things were said at MSD in the fall. The
Orioles cross-country team appears to have disbanded after the 1993
season, not for lack of recent success.

Heading into the 1992 season, the Orioles girls were gunning for their
fifth straight Deaf Athletes Federation of the United States title, while
the boys also had good reason for optimism. Nancy Benton coached both

“We hope to challenge for the Deaf Athletics Federation championship,”
Benton told The News-Post in 1992, referring to the boys team.

Such titles aren’t available these days. An attempt was made to set up a
national meet this year.

“But it collapsed. Not enough schools could go,” Shank said.
“We’re still small.”

MSD has seven runners this year, four boys and three girls. There are also
two middle-school runners.

Shank seemed like a logical choice to coach the team because he coaches
MSD’s track and field teams. But heading into last season, the former
middle-distance runner and longtime track coach was a cross-country

“This is a new experience for me,” he said.

And while Shank’s track teams often have athletes who play other sports
during the same season, his cross-country teams are comprised of athletes
who don’t play football or volleyball.

The first runner to come out for last year’s team was Esteban Kovacs,
and he turned out to be a good one. He ran a respectable time of 18
minutes, 30 seconds at last year’s Frank Keyser Invitational at

Kovacs graduated after last season, although his sister Estelina Kovacs is
on the team.

The Orioles usually stick to meets with other private schools that compete
on a similar level. At last Wednesday’s dual meet against Covenant Life,
MSD’s Crosse Herpin won the boys race, and Kovacs placed second in the
girls race.

The Orioles have six meets on this year’s schedule, although two have
been wiped out by rain. Next up is Tuesday’s meet at St. Anselm’s.

As always, the goal is to improve times.

“At the end of the season, it’s a nice experience,” Shank said.

students and staff who participated had an amazing time. Volleyball game
started early this morning, but not before recognizing the seniors and
their families for all their hard work. Illinois School for the Deaf was
our opponent and we were determined to beat them. The Lady Tartars have
been working on a new strategy and they were starting to catch on and
perform like a team. As more fans showed up, we became more pumped. Our
spirit was high and it paid off! MSD swept ISD 3-0; scores were 25-10,
27-25, 25-19. Addison Blair racked up 7 kills, 3 assists, and 6 aces.
Chloe Woggermanяяs serving improved and she felt strong, attacking more
and getting 4 kills, 3 assists, and 2 aces. Crystal Katcher and Violetta
Colter both served at 100%, helping our team percentage (90%). Kaylie
Edwards was more aggressive getting her first kill today, as w
ell as being the ace leader with 9.. As a team we were receiving better
and playing smarter. Great job ladies! Our next match will be Tuesday,
10/16/18, at New Life Christian Academy at 5:00pm. GO TARTARS!

Fremont 56, Phoenix 12

A CSD fan’s comment after watching the PDSD-CSD 11-man game in Fremont:

“I am proud of the PDSD boys. They ran out of gas against a 25 man team.
They played a full game both ways. Many here recognized that they were
true ortsmen and soldiers, with no certain format being an obstacle, 6,or 8,
or 11. They came to play.”

random deafdigestsports thoughts

below is a weekly article by a CART operator that is a contributor
to DeafDigest. This article talks about baseball and captions, and
you may find it interesting

How long does a baseball game last?  What if there’s a rain delay?  What
if it goes into extra innings?  You may not realize that these are all
important questions that people who schedule realtime captioners need to
think about.

Can a captioner be scheduled to cover a 1:00 p.m. baseball game and a 6:00
p.m. news broadcast?  Most baseball games last about 3 hours, so you would
think that the captioner should be able to cover both assignments.

However, what if the game sets a new record?

In 1984, the Chicago White Sox and Milwaukee Brewers played a game that
lasted 8 hours and 6 minutes.  Actually, because of Major League Baseball
rules stating that an inning cannot begin after 12:59 a.m., the players
and fans had to come back on the next day to complete the game.

Could a captioner be scheduled to caption a half-hour news broadcast at
5:00 p.m. if he or she is also scheduled to caption the post-game show for
a baseball game that begins at 4:00 p.m.?  Once again, you would think the
captioner would have plenty of time, but what if the game set a record as
the shortest game in history?

The New York Giants and Philadelphia Phillies set the record for the
quickest played game in Major League Baseball history in 1919.  They were
able to finish in only 51 minutes.

As you can see, scheduling captioners for events based on the times of
baseball games can be difficult, and you may need to have a backup plan.

Volleyball: California School for Deaf rolling toward league title

North Coast Section

The dominant leader in the Bay Counties General League is California
School for the Deaf.

The Eagles from Fremont are 10-0 with 10 sweeps, comfortably ahead of Holy
Names at 7-3. Coach Karina Pedersen’s Eagles are led by senior Jada
Dawson with 143 kills and 151 digs in 22 games. Jade Dawson does most of
the setting, collecting 295 assists, along with 87 kills and 131 digs.
Malia Zornoza adds to the mix with 116 kills, 139 digs, and 68 assists.

The Eagles are not just feasting on mediocre competition. Their 16-6
overall record includes matches such as a narrow 25-23, 28-30, 14-16
defeat to a strong St. Joseph Notre Dame team, a five-set victory over
College Prep of Oakland and a close call against Bay Valley Athletic
League leader Liberty, 25-16, 24-26, 15-11.

this shows how extremely competitive the recently-held National
Spike Out was. Participating schools may bring their winning
local records into the competition, yet only one school can
emerge as champions (Maryland SD)

St. Vincent strikes quickly to beat California School for the Deaf.

ARGUS-COURIER STAFF | October 9, 2018, 6:33PM | Updated 9 hours ago.
St. Vincent High School’s Mustangs scored twice within 13 seconds in the
second quarter to defeat California School for the Deaf, 20-14, on its
home turf in Fremont on Saturday afternoon.

The win snapped a three-game losing streak for the Mustangs, improved
their record to 5-3 for the season and assured them of a winning record in
Trent Herzog’s first year as head coach. The Mustangs have an unwanted
bye this week as their planned opponent, Madison Park Academy of Oakland,
canceled its season.

The loss was just the second of the season for CSD, opposed to five wins.

St. Vincent was clinging to a 7-6 lead when Diego Reyes recovered a fumble
at the CSD 18-yard line. It was one of five turnovers forced by the CSD

On the first play following the fumble, St. Vincent reversed to wide
receiver Marcus Matthias, who went the 18 yards for the score.

On CSD’s first play following the kickoff, defensive tackle Connor
Yowell sacked the quarterback, Reyes forced a fumble and sophomore
defensive tackle Andrew Pech picked it up and raced 36 yards for another
Mustang touchdown
