a dedication

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to  Robert A.
Patzner. As a young man, he played basketball for
The Council Bluffs Club for the Deaf which won a national
deaf tournament championship in 1961.

Years later he owned several racehorses that raced at
local racing tracks. It was a hobby with him while
he held a full time job.

Gallaudet swimming honors

Sealts sweeps NEAC Men’s Swimmer and Rookie of the Year, Curran named
Coach of the Year

GANSEVOORT, N.Y. – The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) released
its 2018 All-Conference Swimming and Diving teams and Gallaudet University
earned 10 spots, which included three relay events. Five different Bison
men’s swimmers earned all-conference honors including 2017-18 Men’s
Swimming and Diving Swimmer of the Year, Rookie of the Year and Coach of
the Year.

A swimmer or diver needs to place first, second, or third in an event at
the NEAC Championships to earn all-conference status. The 2018 swimming
and diving championships were held Feb. 16-18 and were hosted by SUNY
Cobleskill. Gallaudet finished in third place with 379 points.

Freshman Benjamin Sealts (Ottawa, Ohio) became the first men’s swimmer in
NEAC history to earn NEAC Men’s Swimmer of the Year and NEAC Men’s Rookie
of the Year at the same championship. The feat was achieved one time on
the women’s side when Cedar Crest College’s Maggie Olock swept both awards
at the 2104 NEAC championships. Sealts won his three individual events he
was entered in and set NEAC and school records in the process. He was also
a member of Gallaudet’s first-place 400-yard medley relay team along with
the 200-yard medley relay (second place) and 400-yard freestyle (third
place).

This is the second straight year Gallaudet has swept the NEAC Men’s
Swimmer and Rookie of the Year. Sealts becomes the third Bison to earn
NEAC Men’s Swimmer of the Year as he joins fellow teammate Jonathan
Tikhonoff (Folsom, Calif.), last year’s winner, along with accomplished
Bison swimmer Brian Bennett, who won back-to-back honors in 2011, ’12.
GU’s Chris Martinez was last year’s NEAC Men’s Rookie of the Year, this is
the second time in program history the Bison have earned this award.

Sealts shares the 2018 NEAC Men’s Swimming Rookie of the Year with SUNY
Cobleskill’s Daniel Mullen.

This is Gallaudet head coach Larry Curran’s first NEAC Men’s Swimming &
Diving Coach of the Year award. He earned the 2013-14 NEAC Women’s
Swimming & Diving Coach of the Year award four years ago.

Tikhonoff had an impressive meet as the senior won three individual events
and set a NEAC and school record in the 200-yard butterfly. He also joined
Sealts and senior David Bruno (Patchogue, N.Y.) and junior Mackenzie
Shannon (Winnetka, ill.) on the three relay teams that earned
all-conference honors. Freshman Rett Jala (McAllen, Texas) earned
all-conference third team honors in the 100-yard backstroke.

women’s swimming honors

Five Bison earn All-NEAC women’s swimming honors

GANSEVOORT, N.Y. – The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) released
its 2018 All-Conference Swimming and Diving teams and Gallaudet University
grabbed six spots on three different teams. GU had five women’s swimmers
earn all-conference honors.

A swimmer or diver needs to place first, second, or third in an event at
the NEAC Championships to earn all-conference status. The 2018 swimming
and diving championships were held Feb. 16-18 and were hosted by SUNY
Cobleskill. Gallaudet finished in fourth place with 310 points.

Sophomore Julia Miller-Notestone (Medford, Ore.) made a splash in her
return at the conference championships where she won the 100-yard
backstroke, finished second in the 100-yard freestyle and was third in the
200-yard freestyle.

Miller-Notestone was also a member of three Bison relays that earned
All-NEAC third team honors. GU’s 200- and 400-yard medley relay teams
consisted of Miller-Notestone, junior Alisia Metante (Pleasanton, Calif.)
and sophomores Jackie Perkins (Hampton, Va.) and Jessica Monroe (Senoia,
Ga.). Gallaudet’s 800-yard freestyle relay team was made up by
Miller-Notestone, Metante, Monroe and junior Jana Kiefer (Leander, Texas).

Gallaudet baseball

Bison sweep series with Valley Forge on Opening Day

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University baseball team flourished in its
season-opener with a doubleheader sweep of University of Valley Forge on a
cool and sun-filled Sunday afternoon at Hoy Field. Gallaudet (2-0) shut
out the Patriots (0-2) in the first game 6-0 and won 5-1 in the second
game in the non-conference twin bill to begin the 2018 season.

Game 1: Gallaudet 6, Valley Forge 0
Senior outfielder Kyle Gumm (Dallas, Texas) led the offense with a 2-for-3
performance at the plate as he drove in one run and scored three times.

Gallaudet received great production from the top of its order as the top
five batters recorded a RBI and combined for five of the team’s six hits.
GU scored first with two runs in the bottom of the first and added two
runs in the fifth and six innings to capture its first win of the season.

Freshman pitcher Ethan Denson (Huffman, Texas) picked up his first
collegiate win as he pitched four innings of shutout ball. Denson (1-0)
allowed two hits, walked two batters and struck out four in the win. A
trio of Bison pitchers came on in relief to closeout the game. Valley
Forge’s pitcher Shashwat Chitnis (0-1) allowed four runs on four hits,
walked three, and struck out two in over four innings of work.

Game 2: Gallaudet 5, Valley Forge 1
The Bison led 1-0 early in the second game and added more runs in the
fourth and fifth innings. Junior outfielder Yebi Areola (Nashville, Tenn.)
tripled to right field to score sophomore Winston Lane (Brooklyn Center,
Minn.) in the bottom of the fourth. On the next play, Areola scored thanks
to freshman Darren Drolsbaugh’s (Landsdale, Pa.) sacrifice bunt to the
pitcher.

Valley Forge got on the board in the fifth as Bryan Reyes hit a sacrifice
fly to center field to score Jonas Marte as the Patriots cut the Bison
lead to two, 3-1.

Gallaudet struck, again, in the bottom of the fifth with two additional
runs. Gumm, who led off the inning with a walk, stole a base and moved up
on a ground out before he scored on a wild pitch. Lane followed that up
with a double to right-center field to plate senior Justin Strong
(Charlotte, N.C.), who got on base after being hit by the pitch, to give
GU the four-run lead, 5-1.

Junior Cameron Upton (Vicksburg, Miss.) recorded his first win of the year
as he allowed one run on four hits and struck out two in five innings of
work. Valley Forge pitcher Bryce Wheary took the loss as he allowed four
runs on three hits, walked three, and struck out four in four innings.

note:
Gallaudet easily swept Valley Forge in a double header last season,
by run away scores. Valley Forge has gotten stronger this season
with many freshmen recruits.

Gallaudet sweeps NEAC men’s swimming awards as Bison finish third at
conference championships

COBLESKILL, N.Y. – The Gallaudet University men’s swimming and diving
program cleaned up at the 2018 North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC)
championships hosted by SUNY Cobleskill as the Bison took every individual
award on Sunday night. GU finished third overall as Wells College snuck by
the Bison down the stretch to take second place away from the buff and
blue.

Freshman Benjamin Sealts (Ottawa, Ohio) was the star of the weekend as he
won four events (including one relay) and set three NEAC records en route
to be named the 2018 NEAC Men’s Swimmer of the Year and 2018 NEAC Men’s
Rookie of the Year. Sealts shares the rookie of the year honor with SUNY
Cobleskill’s Daniel Mullen. Gallaudet head coach Larry Curran was named

The host Fighting Tigers from SUNY Cobleskill successfully defended its
championship as they finished with 498 team points followed by Wells

improve on his own school record time of 1:58.11 set on Jan. 13, 2018. He
was over 34 seconds ahead of the second-place swimmer.

Senior Jonathan Tikhonoff (Folsom, Calif.), last year’s NEAC Men’s Swimmer
of the Year, won the 200-yard butterfly with a NEAC record time of
2:06.79. Tikhonoff’s time erases Raymond Clark’s school record time of
2:09.83 set in 2005. The previous NEAC mark was 2:11.02 set by a Cazenovia
swimmer in 2013.

Gallaudet finished third in the 400-yard freestyle relay as Sealts and
Tikhonoff teamed up with junior Mackenzie Shannon (Winnetka, Ill.) and

St Mary’s boys basketball

The Bisons played The Marie Katzenbach School for the Deaf from New Jersey
this afternoon in the Division II ESDAA Championships.  It has been over
10 years since The Herd was in the championship game so the Bisons were
anxious and jittery to start.  The first 8 minutes were close and low
scoring for both teams.  The Bisons then  took off on a run and outscored
New Jersey 17-8 in the final 8 minutes of the first half(Rhode Island
state rules play halves and not quarters).  Nick Barrus and Kassim Kassim
created some key turnovers that led to points.  Isa Habeeb(10) and Dalton
Planty(11) combined for 21 rebounds and helped control the boards. Ryan
Brzezinski came in off the bench and provided a change in the game which
led to points for the Bisons.  New Jersey got into foul trouble to start
the second half and the Bisons continued their run and outscored New
Jersey 17-5 for 8 minutes of play. The Bisons went on to win and become
Division II Champions….43-27.

The Bisons also won the Team Free Throw Competition, Team 21 Competition
and the Team Half Court Layup Competition.

1st team All-Stars were Nick Barrus, Isa Habeeb and Christian Lawrence.

Tournament Most Valuable Player was Nick Barrus.

Our record is 11 wins and 3 losses.

NCAA-I pitcher with a hearing loss

Robby Medel shows confidence in expanding role

part of web posting

“Going into my first year here [Arizona], that summer my mom was
thinking I was always ignoring her and I was like ‘no I’m not ignoring
you,’” Medel said. “So I did some hearing tests … figur[ed] out
that I am hard of hearing and [that] it’s really bad.”

Medel eventually had to get hearing aids, but initially wasn’t a big
fan. During his first year as a Wildcat, Medel struggled while on the
mound and eventually realized that wearing the hearing aids would benefit
him.

note:
he is late-deafened; he is a senior, too

a dedication to a past deaf club basketball player

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to Joe
Jezerski that departed us.

As a young man he was an outstanding basketball player
for Pittsburgh-area teams during the late fifties
and early sixties.

The highlight of his career was his 21 points in the
1958 championship finals that helped his Beaver
Valley team defeat Washington, DC for the title.

He was a role model among his teammates, always
telling them to stop arguing with the referees
and to just play ball.

His son, Tim, was a former Gallaudet basketball
player.

Bison “Cruz” into NEAC tournament after regular-season finale victory on Senior Day

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University’s mens basketball triumphed over
Penn St.-Abington, 74-71, in a North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC)
game Saturday afternoon in the Field House on Padden Court in the Bison’s
regular-season finale on Senior Day.

The Bison (9-16, 8-8 NEAC) came out of the gates fast and led from
start-to-finish in the three-point win over the Nittany Lions (10-13, 8-8
NEAC) to improve its postseason seeding. Gallaudet led 36-29 at the half
and increased its lead to 10 points with 2:57 left in regulation. The
Nittany Lions made their move and cut the Gallaudet lead to one, 72-71,
after Kevin Raymond made a three-pointer with 53 seconds left on the
clock. Gallaudet used several timeouts to regroup and held on to win its
ninth game of the season.

from freshman Shawn Daniels (Lakeland, Fla.), to thwart a Lion last-second
comeback.

Gallaudet locks up home NEAC tournament game after Senior Day win

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University’s women’s basketball team won a
tight 65-56 game against Penn St.-Abington in a North Eastern Athletic
Conference (NEAC) game Saturday evening in the Field House on Padden Court
on Senior Day.

The Bison (12-13, 9-7 NEAC) and Nittany Lions (13-11, 8-8 NEAC) exchanged
the lead 13 times and saw eight ties during the game. Gallaudet trailed
41-37 entering the fourth quarter and didn’t regain the lead until the
2:33 mark when junior guard Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.) sank a
three-pointer off an assist from senior Lawjen Ashmore (Fairbanks,
Alaska). Shysh’s third three-pointer gave Gallaudet a 52-49 lead.

Penn St.-Abington began to foul to preserve time and force Gallaudet to
win it at the free throw line. Gallaudet made the most of its
opportunities, coupled with two technical fouls on the visitors, as the
Bison made 13 of 14 attempts (92.8 percent) to close out the game.

Junior guard/forward Hannah Neild (Litchfield, N.H.), one of the leading
scorers in NCAA Division III women’s basketball, scored a game-high 27
points and added four rebounds, three blocks and two steals. Senior
forward Kelsey Hudson (Blissfield, Mich.) grabbed the game-high 25
rebounds to go with six points and two steals. Freshman guard Emelia
Beldon (Frederick, Md.) passed out a game-high nine assists along with
three steals and seven points. Shysh made a game-high four steals to go
with 16 points and five rebounds.

Matthew Klotz swimming update

from a web posting

The 2018 SEC Swimming & Diving Championship will officially start on
Wednesday with the 200 medley and 800 free relay timed finals, in addition
to women’s 1-meter diving and men’s 3-meter diving. Meanwhile, time
trials have begun on Wednesday morning in College Station. A few
interesting results so far are summarized below:

LSU’s Matthew Klotz swam a 20.04 in the men’s 50 free. That’s his
lifetime best, and also a US Deaf Swimming American Record in the event.
The old official record is a 20.47 done by Marcus Titus in 2015, though
Klotz swam an un-ratified 20.21 at last year’s SEC Championship meet.

St Mary’s girls basketball

The lady Bisons traveled to Delaware this weekend for the ESDAA girls
basketball tournament. They played in two games and came in fifth
overall.

In their first game Friday night they took on RISD in what turned out
to be one of the closest games of the weekend. The Bisons had a hard
time breaking through the RI defense and with starter Elise Watson
getting sick and missing the second half of the game, the girls had a
lot of floor to cover. Though they trailed most of the game by 2-3
points, they never gave up and eventually tied up the game late in
the 4th quarter. It all came down to the last minute of play when RI
put in two baskets quickly ending our chance of advancing. Kioney
Alvira-Jurado lead the team with 9 points while Cami Cole and Kearah
Kelly both helped out with 4 each.

After a day of competitions and watching others play on Saturday, we
had the first game of the day on Sunday. We took on New York State
school for the Deaf (Rome) for 5th place. Knowing how our last
meeting with Rome ended, we made the smart move to start Elise Watson
as point guard with Aleyshka Nieves-Rivera, Tatyana Bean, Julia
Bronneberg, and Kearah Kelly making up the rest of the roster. The
girls played strong against Rome and kept it close throughout the
first half of the game. Elise Watson ran into foul trouble early in
the game and had to be replaced by Kioney Alvira-Jurado and Cameron
Cole at point. The girls took turns this game running against Rome,
but coming into the second half our starters quickly took, and
maintained, the lead. Cameron Cole lead the team with 11 points this
game with Kioney adding 8 and Kearah adding 3 for the win in this
22-14 victory.

Though they only finished in 5th place the girls showed great
sportsmanship throughout the weekend.

Senior Tatyana Bean won the Ann Leo award for courage

Sophomore Cameron Cole was named to the tournament all-star team

The girls finished their season with a final record of 2 wins-5 loses

Game: SMSD vs Rhode Island 19:23

……………………………………………..

Texas girls’ basketball

Well, the girls battled hard last night and we just came up short.  We now
know we can hang with the #3 team in the state.  With the loss, we now
have to play a tie-breaker game with Brentwood to decide who will be the #2/#3
seed for our district heading into the state playoffs.

The tie-breaker game vs Brentwood will be on Tuesday night (7p) at San
Juan Diego’s new gym.

The first round of the playoff game (Area) will be Tuesday, Feb. 20th-
either vs Woodlands (at Woodlands, if we are #3 seed), or vs Bay Area
Christian (at TSD, if we are #2 seed)

Gallaudet women’s basketball

Bison dispatch Patriots in largest home win of the season

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University’s women’s basketball team collected
a 91-47 win against University of Valley Forge in a non-conference game
here Saturday in the Field House on Padden Court.

Gallaudet (10-13) came out of the gates on fire and played at a high level
as its energy levels dictated the tempo of the game against Valley Forge
(10-8). GU led from start-to-finish and scored over 21 points in every
quarter. The Bison took a 46-18 lead into halftime and outscored the
Patriots in the second half, 45-29.

Junior guard/forward Hannah Neild  (Litchfield, N.H.) finished with a
game-high 31 points as she made 12 of 20 shots from the field and went
4-for-7 from three-point range. She added nine assists, six steals, three
blocks and three rebounds. Freshman guard Emelia Beldon (Frederick, Md.)
matched Neild with a season-high nine assists as she ripped down eight
boards and made four steals.

Junior guard Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.) spun heads and sunk shots as she
finished with a career-high 29 points, seven assists, five rebounds and
five steals. Senior forward Kelsey Hudson (Blissfield, Mich.) recorded the
only double-double of the game with 11 points and a game-high 13 rebounds.

The energy continued when senior forward Lawjen Ashmore (Fairbanks,
Alaska) entered off the bench and played aggressive defense. Ashmore
finished the game with nine rebounds, four steals and six points.

Gallaudet men’s basketball

Gallaudet fends off late charge by Valley Forge to win, 61-60

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University’s men’s basketball team eked out a
61-60 victory over University of Valley Forge here Saturday in a
non-conference game in the Field House on Padden Court.

Gallaudet (8-15) held off a charging Valley Forge (3-14) squad, who
outscored the Bison 36-27 in the second half, and had a chance to win the
game in the waning seconds.

The Patriots stepped out of bounds with three seconds left to turn the
ball over to the Bison. Valley Forge fouled sophomore guard Noah Valencia
(Riverside, Calif.), who missed the 1-and-1 attempt at the free throw
line. The Patriots’ Arthur Wilborn (15 points, 13 rebounds) gathered the
defensive rebound and chucked the ball the distance of the court but
missed the basket as time expired.

GU celebrated its fifth win at home this season as the Bison turn their
attention back to conference play next week.

Valencia finished with 14 points, six assists, four rebounds and two
steals. Senior forward Andy Cruz (Bronx, N.Y.) chipped in 12 points, six
rebounds, three blocks and two steals while sophomore Trace Martin
(Shingle Springs, Calif.) was the third Bison in double figures with 10
points.

Gallaudet coach Kevin Kovacs went to his bench, early and often, as he
played 11 players who logged seven or more minutes in the game. Freshman
Wilford Troup (Snellville, Ga.) scored a career best seven points while
juniors Cody Crace (Westfield, Ind.) and Jawaun Jackson (Downey, Calif.)
added six points off the bench.

Martin drained a buzzer-beater three-pointer, right before the end of the
first half, as Valencia found Martin on the left side of the arc. Martin
threw up an off-balance shot as time expired and sent Gallaudet into the
locker room up 34-24.

deaf pro tennis player Duck Hee Lee

part of newspaper posting

Hearing impairment no hindrance for Lee

South Korea’s Duckhee Lee was born deaf but that hasn’t stopped him from
adjusting to the tough grind of professional tennis.

Lee’s best performance was when he reached the final of the Kaohsiung
ATP Challenger in 2016, losing to country-mate Hyeon Chung.  On Chung, who
became the first South Korean to enter the semifinals of a Grand Slam  —
the 2018 Australian Open — Lee said he has known Chung from the
elementary school. “I am trying to play catch-up now,” said Lee,
ranked 207 in the world.

Lee said he is young, has a lot of opportunities to learn and travel to
gauge his strengths. His aim is to get back to his best-ever ranking of
130 he achieved in last year. “I want to do well in Majors sooner than
later,” he said.

comment by Hope Solo (not deaf)

she was campaigning for the presidency of the
US Soccer Federation but did not win.

She said:
“I believe the Federation has lost its way, and forgotten its
fundamental obligation, as a national governing body, to develop the sport
for all. Our youth, our adults, our recreational players, our futsal
teams, our Paralympic athletes, and our U.S. deaf team. Everyone,” Solo
said.

note:
DeafDigest Sports editor thinks it was the first time a candidate,
for presidency of any athletic federation, mentioned the deaf.

Hope did not get too many votes for one reason – she’s very
unpopular, though she was a great goalie.

GU hangs on to sweep season series with Bryn Athyn on Pink Night

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet women’s basketball team secured a tight 68-65
win over Bryn Athyn College in a close North Eastern Athletic Conference
(NEAC) South Division game here Wednesday night in the Field House on
Padden Court.

Gallaudet (9-13, 7-7 NEAC) saw its fourth quarter six-point lead switch in
favor of Bryn Athyn (6-17, 3-11 NEAC) with 3:41 left in regulation as the
Lions led 61-59. Junior guard Hannah Neild (Litchfield, N.H.) came down
and hit a clutch three-pointer followed by a jumper to give Gallaudet the
64-61 lead at the 2:45 mark. The Bison made some key free throws down the
stretch and led 67-65 with just 16 seconds left when Bryn Athyn turned the
ball over, on a double-dribble call, to hand GU the game.

Neild scored a game-high 28 points while junior forward Sabina Shysh
(Tucson, Ariz.) added 20 points and a game-high seven assists. Neild added
six rebounds, five assist, four steals and one block. Senior forward
Kelsey Hudson (Blissfield, Mich.) grabbed a team-high 12 rebounds to go
with seven points

Gallaudet trailed Bryn Athyn by 11 points, 14-3, early in the first
quarter but went on a 11-3 run to cut the Lions’ lead to three, 17-14, at
the end of the first. GU finally took the lead right before halftime where
it led 35-32.

Gallaudet men’s basketball

Bison punch postseason ticket with win over Bryn Athyn

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University men’s basketball team picked up a
crucial North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) South Division victory
here Wednesday night as the Bison led from start-to-finish in an 81-63
victory over Bryn Athyn College in the Field House on Padden Court.

The win helps to clinch a conference tournament berth for Gallaudet (7-15,
7-7 NEAC) as it now stands 6-4 in NEAC South Division games with two
conference contests left. The top four teams from the North and South
Division will make the NEAC tournament based off their divisional records.
The Bison can still improve their tournament seeding with games against
Wilson and Penn St.-Abington, both ahead of GU in the South Division, in
the next two weeks.

Sophomore guard Noah Valencia (Riverside, Calif.) scored 17 of his
game-high 31 points in the second half as he made 5 of 7 shots from
three-point range. He made 11 of 18 shots from the field in the game,
grabbed four rebounds and passed out three assists. Senior forward Andy
Cruz (Bronx, N.Y.) added 13 points, nine rebounds, four steals, two
assists and one block. Freshman Lance Wood (Fishers, Ind.) came off the
bench and scored a career best 10 points and ripped down six boards.
Freshman guard Preston Kelly (Fishers, Ind.) passed out a career-high nine
assists, grabbed seven rebounds, two steals and scored six points in the
win.

Gallaudet led 41-32 at the half after Valencia drained a three-pointer at
the buzzer to give the Bison a nine-point lead the momentum.

American basketball

 Girls game vs Central Christian was cancelled due to lack of players.
Team is still working around illnesses.

 Boys played at Central Christian, getting off to a slow start in the
first half. Central Christian played a very strong game taking care of the
basketball and taking smart shots. ASD found themselves down 16-33 at
halftime. Coaches made some defensive adjustments in the second half and
the team started to roar back. ASD ran out of time to complete the
comeback falling by a score of 50-58. Andrew Ray Taylor had 18 points,
Robert Milone chipped in 15 points. Team record is now 10-5.

 Boys JV opened up play against the West Hartford Youth League. The team
was sharp in the opening minutes of the game taking a quick and early
lead. Players were rotated into the game, many of them getting their first
playing experiences. Tigers entered the fourth quarter down 13 points and
rallied back making it a 1 point game with 30 seconds to play. Tigers
missed several lay ups in the final seconds. After a foul the team had the
ball down 2 points with 8 seconds to play. The team went for the win and
saw a game winning three point attempt bounce off the front of the rim.
Lost 36-38.

Florida boys’ basketball

Dragons 62
CC 55
Halftime score: FSDB 23-26 CC

I’m not sure how to open up this game recap, so I’m gonna pay homage to
the late Keith Jackson, “WHOOOOOOOOAAAAAA NELLIE!”.  The boys played
harmoniously once again and toppled CC 62-55 in a wild game at Settles
Gym.

Coming into this game, we knew Calvary was a great team.  They annhiliated
all of our common opponents including a team we just lost to by 25 last
week.  But our boys were up to the task and more.  I’m going to continue
with the dinner table analogy from
last night and say that we carved up their press for easy baskets in the
beginning.  That forced them to lay back and play honest defense.

That threw us off guard a little bit as we only scored 9 points in the 2nd
quarter.  In the second half we started hot and stayed that way to score
18 and 19 points in the 3rd and 4th quarters.

The best part of the game came in the end with 5 seconds left when they
were playing tight man to man defense and Wallace Burrell executed a
perfect screen to spring Quintin Galpine loose and Samy Vital hit him in
stride towards the basket and Quintin
finished with a thunderous dunk!  The gym went crazy and we nearly brought
down the roof!

Leading scorers tonight: Galpine 19, Yahir Rodriguez 15, Samy Vital 13,
Luis Merced 7, Burrell 4, Walter Douglas 4.

We have a last minute addition to our schedule. See below

of the misery action then we put ourselves back to lead the game. Junior,
Kacey Monahan led the team with 24 points, 7 rebounds and 2 steals. We

New Mexico girls’ basketball

V Girls (1/30)
NMSD – 35
Wagon Mound – 18

The roadrunners broke their three game losing slump with a good
performance at Wagon Mound. We started off not doing a great job on the
defensive side, being down at the end of the first quarter with Wagon
Mound leading 9-8. During the second quarter, we did a great job shutting
them down and not letting them score a point, while we went off on a 10
point quarter. At the half we were leading 18 -9. However, the team was
not satisfied with their performance and knew that they could play better.
We finished the third quarter with a 14 point performance to Wagon Mound’s
6. And cruised to a win 35 – 18.

Sophomore Lindsay Hand had a double- double with 18 rebounds, 16 points,
and 2 blocks. Freshman Victoria Baca with her quick hands contributed to
the team with 10 points, 5 steals, and 2 rebounds. Sophomore Mya Malone
continued her dominance on the board with 15 rebounds, 2 steals, and a
block and a point a piece. Sophomore Andrea Leyba’s shooting woes
continued, however, she scored a basket, had 1 assist, 1 steal, and a
rebound. Her presence on the court did not show on the stat sheet, but her
energy and positive demeanor was much needed for the team. 8th grader
Sophia Martinez, continues to prove to the team that she is a valuable
asset and a force to be reckoned with when asked to step in. Senior
Sherrena Bob, who did a fantastic job preventing second chance points on
the defensive side by doing all the little things such as; boxing out and
challenging the shooter, helped the team with 2 points, 3 rebounds, and 1
assist. Senior guard, Antonia Martinez, who unfortunately ha
d a brief injury scare, was able to contribute to the team with her 2
points, 1 rebound and a block before her night was cut short. The team
looks forward to continue being consistent playing hard and aggressive,
with our next game being on February 6th on our home floor against
Walatowa.

Record 4 – 7

Our girls’ basketball team played host to Sophia Academy on Wednesday,
January 31st — the second of four games for our girls’ this week as they
continue their preparations for the upcoming ESDAA Div. 2 Girls’
Basketball Tournament next week in Delaware.

Sophia Academy had a strong duo, a point guard and a center who did most
of the work for their team, scoring 30 of 38 team points. Our girls
struggled to stop these duo consistently. We focused instead on the
positives that our team showed including more girls scoring baskets and
attempting shots.

Sophia Academy won the game 38-20.

RISD Girls Basketball

Our RISD Girls’ Basketball team traveled to Lincoln School to play the
first basketball game between these two schools. This turned out to be one
of the most competitive game our girls have had — we were barely hanging
on to a 14-12 halftime lead. In the second half, our girls woke up and we
were able to pull away, holding a 10-point lead at one point. Fatigue set
in on our girls and we slowly started to allow the lead to slip away and
would ultimately lose on a buzzer-beating layup by Lincoln School’s
leading scorer (who finished with 14 points).

The coaches hope that this game will serve as a good stepping stone for
our girls – shows all of our starters were able to score, and with a lead
– we must protect it, not cruise toward the end of the game! Only two
games left for us before we travel to Delaware for the 2018 ESDAA Div. 2
Tournament!

Gallaudet Athletic Director Michael Weinstock to retire in August

WASHINGTON – Gallaudet University Athletic Director Michael Weinstock,
’81 & G-’94, has announced he will retire from his post on August 3,
2018.

Weinstock guided the Gallaudet athletics department through an era of
transformation during his 11-year tenure.

“I want to personally thank Michael for his dedicated service to the
Gallaudet community for the past three decades. His loyalty and work to
transform Gallaudet athletics, over the past 11 years, is evident and we
all should be proud of where the Bison program currently stands,” said
Gallaudet University President Roberta J. Cordano. “We wish Michael a
happy and restful retirement with his wife, Janet, and hope to see them in
the stands rooting on the Bison student-athletes for the years to come.”

Gallaudet’s athletic department went from five full-time staff members
when Weinstock started as AD to 19, which has been instrumental with
recruitment, retention, safety and promotion of Gallaudet athletics.
Weinstock introduced the use of graduate assistants to help bolster
team-coaching staffs and give experience to many deaf and hard of hearing
students.

“This has been a tremendous ride for me over the years working at
Gallaudet,” said Weinstock. “The time has come for me to pass along the
torch to the next Athletic Director to guide Bison athletics. I am very
proud of everything we have been able to accomplish as an athletics
department. We started from the bottom and built things up towards the top
and have made a name for ourselves.”

A national search will begin for Weinstock’s replacement this February
with the goal of having the new athletic director in place by the summer.

Florida boys’ basketball

1/30 at St. Johns Country Day School (Orange Park):
Dragons 61
SJCD 54
Halftime score: FSDB 28-20 SJCD

It was nice to get a tally in the W column again after our struggles last
week.  We got off to a good start, but couldn’t put them away until mid
4th quarter when we found oursevles with a 21 point lead.  At that point
we slowly subbed in our players.
But then SJCD caught fire and pulled within 8 forcing us to send back our
regulars in to finish the last 45 seconds of the game.  The highlight of
the game was that all 12 of our players scored!  That’s what coaches dream
of :) .

Season record: 12-8

Next games:
1/31 HOME vs Duval Charter. Tipoff at 7:30. MS boys play at 6.
2/1 HOME SENIOR NIGHT vs Calvary Christian. Tipoff at 6. Seniors
presentation at halftime.

1/31 vs Duval Charter (Jax):
Dragons 59
DC 32
Halftime score: FSDB 36-25 DC

This must have been how Michelangelo felt when he stepped back and took a
look at his finished Sistine Chapel ceiling.  Our boys played a perfect
game!  The way we broke their press and exectued in transition was a sight
to behold!  I’m really proud of
the way they played tonight.

Duval Charter beat us earlier this year by 14 points on the strength of
their tenacious press.  Tonight, we forced them to abandon their press in
the 2nd half when we were like a hot knife cutting through butter.

And to top it all off, it was our first game in our own Settles Gym since
12/11 (51 days).  The crowd came to check out the Mason Dixon champions,
and we most certainly gave them what they were hoping to see.

Yahir Rodriquez was unbelievable in the 1st half with 22 points, 16 of
them coming in the 1st quarter.  He finished with 31 points. His teammates
knew he was hot and had no qualms feedling him the ball.  That was such
unselfish play and I told Yahir that
he owes ‘em all dinner!

Quintin Galpine scored 13 and Wallace Burrell 9 along with a trio of
scorers who tallied a deuce- Samy Vital, Walter Douglas, and Cody Newsome.

Season record: 13-8

Next game:
2/1 HOME SENIOR NIGHT vs Calvary Christian. Tipoff at 6. Seniors
presentation at halftime.

Florida girls’ basketball

Monday’s game against FCC, since 2011 we have not beaten them. But this
game, we did with the score of 37 to 33. It was a bittersweet because the
game was our last home game. Lady Dragons controlled the ball in all 4
quarters, giving FCCS no chance of
catching up. Olivia Brown and Lourdine Jordonne made up most points, 14
and 17. Ja’Myra added 4 and Oceana for 2 points. Last December, we played
against FCC and lost the game, they had 43 points. As you can see, our
defense improved lately. Hats off to
Lady Dragons!

Tuesday’s game was a heart-winching game, we fell behind in first quarter
6 to 12, and managed to creep up to 13-16. We were tied in end of third
quarter, 20 apiece. Our fourth quarter shooting gone haywire, stone cold,
even going on layups the
basketball seems not interested in getting in the rim! We lost the game 27
to 36. Lourdine had 9 points, Olivia for 7, Ja’Myra got 6, Oceana for 3,
and Emma with 2 points.

Our next game will be tomorrow night at Interchalen.

Record 9-16
