February 22 – North Coast Section Division VI First Round

#5 CSD (15-12)  8 – 11 – 7 – 13 = 39
#12 El Sobrante Christian (15-1) 19 – 6 – 7 – 8 = 40

Slow start down 19-8 at the first quarter hurt us as we closed out the
game 31-21 in the last three quarters, and 1-11 FT did not help our
comeback attempt. Tough conclusion to the 2016-17 season especially for
our two seniors – Milana Boren and Yadira Pacheco – on this young squad.

CSD Eagles Girls Basketball closes their season with 15-13 record (14-11
regular season) for Coach Weinstock’s first season as Head Coach

tomorrow.

Josh Bolander, an ESPN anchorperson who covered our football game last
night won the “Highlight of the Year” award and he will be on ESPN
Sportscenter tonight at 8:30pm PT, 11:30pm ET showing him winning the
award, the highlight he made on us, and Cameron Baer and my message
congratulating him.

On Saturday, Hidden Heroes was here last fall and have decided to air a
piece on us on CBS this Saturday.  While seeing the preview, I was moved
by Luke Bella, Spezio Harmount, and Jax Pedersen’s comments on the
preview.  In the Bay Area, it will be on KPIX on Saturday at 9:00am,

Missouri girls’ basketball

Missouri School for the Deaf Lady Eagles February 10, 2017:

Today we played the Minnesota State Academy of the Deaf Lady Trojans for
the second round of the Great Plains Schools for the Deaf (GPSD)
Tournament. We won 61-24 making our record 2-13. It is our highest scoring
game thus far. We were up 29-16 at halftime. We were able to put up a lot
of shots and slowly built our score the entire first half. We came back in
third quarter and out-scored them 26-2 giving us a strong, comfortable
lead. We backed off and played a 2-3 zone for the remainder of the game.
After yesterday’s loss it was great for our spirits to bring in a victory
today. Elizabeth Harrison and Delanzia Hayes tied for highest scorer of
the game with 23 points a piece. Elizabeth Harrison also achieved her
fourth double-double of the season with 23 points and 12 steals. She was
only 2 rebounds away from a triple-double so I will be analyzing the game
tape to ensure accuracy because she works hard and I don’t want to take
away a triple-double she earned. We will play Wis
consin School for the Deaf for the consolation game at 12:30 on February
11, 2017.

Stats
Tyra Rogers – 9 points, 2 rebounds, 4 steals
Cheyenne Dickerson – 6 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal
Melissa Davis – 6 rebounds, 1 assist, 3 steals
Elizabeth Harrison – 23 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assist, 12 steals, 2 blocked
shots
Delanzia Hayes – 23 points, 6 rebounds, 1 assist, 3 steals

2016 DeafDigest Sports Volleyball Team of the Year

Texas School for the Deaf

Texas defeated Maryland twice at the National Spike Out,
and it was the clincher, even though it was by a
razor-thin margin. In these all-important third
sets in the crucial matches against Maryland,
Texas won 15-14 and 15-13. Both teams were
split 1-1 in these first two sets against
each other.

Texas upgraded its schedule this season to play
against the toughest opponents possible.

Maryland overcame the disappointment in losing
to Texas to win two separate league regular
season championships and two separate league
post-seasone playoff championships.

Keep in mind, again, the edge Texas had over
Maryland was just a razor-thin margin.

Gallaudet football

Hornets sting Bison in season opener

WASHINGTON – Gallaudet University opened its 2016 football season with a
43-6 loss to Shenandoah University here Saturday night before 1,115 under
the lights at Hotchkiss Field.

Shenandoah (1-0) compiled 440 yards of total offense with 246 yards coming
on the ground while Gallaudet (0-1) racked up 146 yards of total offense
(112 rushing yards).

The Bison defense caused a turnover on Shenadoah’s first possession when
senior linebacker Sean Fenton (Chicago, Ill.) intercepted Hayden
Bauserman’s pass and returned it 13 yards at the 13:42 mark in the first
quarter.

Gallaudet’s opening drive of the season was a quick three and out as the
Bison were forced to punt.

Bauserman (17-for-29, 194 yards) came back the following drive and threw
the first of four touchdown passes as tailback Cedrick Delaney scored on a
28-yard pass.

Delaney finished the game with 111 rushing yards on 10 carries and one
touchdown to go with his 22 receiving yards on three receptions and one
score.

Gallaudet surrendered a safety on a botched punt snap in the end zone
before Bauserman threw two more touchdown passes in the second quarter.
Shenandoah took a 22-0 lead into the locker room.

The Bison received the opening kickoff in the third quarter but turned it
over on the return to the Hornets. On the next play, Delaney rumbled 33
yards into the end zone. Costly mistakes by the Bison in the third quarter
forced the defense to remain on the field for an extended amount of time
as SU scored three times.

sophomore quarterback Antoine McKinney (Racine, Wis.) found wide receiver
Dylan Mento (Hammonton, N.J.) in the back right corner of the end zone for
the touchdown. GU missed the extra-point attempt.

BISON TRACKS
Senior defensive back Carneilus Smith (Chesapeake, Va.) led the Bison with
six tackles

Freshman quarterback Timel Benton (Columbia, S.C.) carried the ball 17
times and averaged 5.1 yards per carry

Senior defensive end Shawn Benavente (Fremont, Calif.) registered his
first sack of the season

Shenandoah leads the all-time series 5-1

UP NEXT
Gallaudet welcomes Earlham College (0-1) to Hotchkiss Field on Saturday,
Sept. 10, at 2 p.m.

DeafDigest Sports editor’s comments on the Gallaudet football game

DeafDigest Sports editor watched the Gallaudet-Shenandoah game
last night. While the opening season defeat is always a
disappointment, there were encouraging signs. If one takes
a look at the Gallaudet two-deep offensive and defensive
depth chart, then all of the offensive starters were either
freshmen or sophomores! And of the defensive starters,
only five were either juniors or seniors. It takes time to
build a chemistry between new players and veterans.

Rookie quarterback Timel Benton was quick on his feet,
able to find holes when running his own plays. And
wide receiver Dylan Mento was able to get open for
an end zone pass that produced Gallaudet’s sole
touchdown. Players on both sides of the ball were
fighting right to the end of the game; this always
looks good.

And besides, Shenandoah was pretty much an experienced
team, led by a 6’3, 225 lb quarterback, who was dificult
to bring down and had a quick release when he found
open receivers, or was able to pitch the ball out
to open running backs.

It takes time and patience to get all pieces together!

Alabama football

newspaper story

Waterloo at Alabama School for the Deaf

The skinny: Waterloo beat Alabama School for the Deaf last season 20-14
and will look to make it two years in a row. The Cougars will field a
veteran team with quarterback Bryce Palmer pacing the group. Palmer should
have several playmakers with receiver Andrew White and running back Trevor
Darby leading the offense. … The Cougars struggled on defense, allowing
43.8 points per game last season, and will aim to fix those issues with
more experienced players returning. … Alabama School for the Deaf played
eight games last year and averaged 24 points.

……………………………………..

Florida football

part of newspaper story – re upcoming opponent

EST CASE: Oak Hall wins the NFFC. If you ask the Eagles, they were a
double-pass play away from winning it last year, narrowly losing to
eventual champ St. Joseph Academy of St. Augustine. The ideal combination
of talent and experience looks like it’s there. If the Eagles are 4-0 on
Sept. 19, they’ll have cleared what appears to be their two biggest 14
hurdles (Florida Deaf and St. Joseph) and could really be rolling toward a
historic season.
WORST CASE: The Eagles stumble out of the gate with a loss to Florida
School for the Deaf and then fail to get by St. Joseph for a second
straight year. At 2-2 just four weeks into the season, Oak Hall deflates,
knowing it’s dream-season scenario is likely over. 7-2 or 6-3 is still a
good year, but would be below expectations for 2016.

Sarah Tubert in volleyball

part of newspaper story

TUBERT AND SISTER, A MEMBER OF DEAF OLYMPIC VOLLYBALL, TEAM UP: When Sarah
Tubert, the younger sister of Symetra Tour professional Emily, was three
years old she was misdiagnosed with mastoiditis, an infection that leads
to the brain and can cause children to die. Therefore, she was rushed into
surgery and her facial nerve was accidentally severed, which paralyzed the
right side of her face and robbed her hearing. It turns out, she actual
had a simple pinched nerve that should not have required surgery.
Yes, she was dealt a tough hand, but 20 years later, she is living a full
life as a volleyball official, volleyball coach at John Burroughs High
school in Burbank, Calif., a recruiter and a make up artist.
She also is the captain of the National Deaf Olympic Volleyball team.
Sarah recently returned from the Pan-American Games and the World
Championships hosted in Washington D.C. Her U.S. team brought home the
gold and they were undefeated at both events.
editor’s note:

Sarah played two seasons of volleyball at Gallaudet, as the
starter before she transferred to a college in California.

softball lawsuit

posted in today’s DeafDigest Sports

– interesting lawsuit on discrimination

We have many deaf referees and umpires in many sports
for many years. One of them – Chris Miller is a
basketball referee in high level college basketball.
Anyway, these game officials often need to attend
clinics – some with interpreters, some without.
Lawsuits on no interpreters? Jonathan Breuer
is a softball umpire in New Jersey; he has
requested interpreters for clinics he was
required to attend. After being repeatedly
turned down, he then filed a lawsuit.
His attorney – Andrew Rozynski is a Coda
whose father is a long time softball
umpire. This aspect is interesting.

A deaf personal trainer

newspaper story -

Deaf personal trainer wants to break down barriers he says are putting
disabled people off using gyms

Dean Chester, of Hounslow, says too many deaf people lack the confidence
to join a gym

Dean Chester wants to help more deaf people like him achieve their fitness
goals

A deaf personal trainer wants to break down barriers and help more people
like him join their local gym.

Dean Chester, of Hounslow , says hitting the gym transformed his life, not
just helping him get in shape, but building his confidence and opening the
path to a new career.

But the 25-year-old believes too many deaf people still lack the
confidence to sign up to the gym – something he is desperate to change.

“Many deaf people fall into the trap where they find themselves staying in
all the time, not confident enough to join a gym with hearing people,” he
said.

“I want to change that. I believe they’ll be more confident if they have
access to a deaf personal trainer, helping them to connect with the wider
community more.”

‘Gyms could do more to make deaf people feel comfortable’
Mr Chester, who was born deaf, works out at Xercise4Less, in Staines Road,
Hounslow, where he says staff have always been helpful and welcoming.

But he says other gyms could be doing more to attract deaf people, by
using body language, notes or, where possible, providing a deaf personal
trainer like him.

He was overweight and short on confidence when he joined the gym in 2012,
but describes it as the best decision he ever made.

Dean says being deaf has not hindered his work as a personal trainer
As well as shedding more than four stone, he found it bolstered his
flagging self-esteem, spurring him on to complete a degree in sport
development and coaching.

Mr Chester, whose first language is BSL (British Sign Language), says he
uses body language and demonstration more than verbal communication in his
day job, and has not found being deaf a drawback.

‘Anything is possible with the right mindset’
As well as training others, he has set up his own Facebook group, The Deaf
Gym, and YouTube channel, Deaf Fitness and Nutrition.

There he posts tips and uploads video tutorials which he hopes will help
make exercise more easily accessible to all deaf people.

“Joining the gym completely changed my life. It helped me to build up my
confidence and lose weight,” he said.

Dean’s love of the gym inspired him to complete a degree in sport
development and coaching

“Not only that, but it really opened up new doors for me, allowing me to
engage with the ‘hearing community’ so much more.

“I thought becoming a personal trainer would be the perfect opportunity to
put my degree to use, and prove to other deaf individuals that anything is
possible with the right mindset.”
editor’s note:

While this personal trainer is from Great Britain, DeafDigest Sports
editor knows of several past Gallaudet football players that
have become personal trainers. In fact, of them have boasted of
having several celebrity pro athletes as his clients.

The question DeafDigest Sports editor has – is it their full time
job that makes them comfortable income?

Answer – do not know!

swimmer of year is deaf
Boys Swimmer of the Year: Callen Bruening

A Miner’s Calling: Bruening overcomes hearing impairment to excel in the
pool

El Diamante.s Callen Bruening is the 2016 Times-Delta/Advance-Register

rugby in Washington, DC

The Washington Post ran a story on rugby among
schools in Washington, DC.

The story, however, did not mention that
Model Secondary School for the Deaf fields the
nation’s only deaf high school rugby team. They
play against schools that have traditionally-strong
football programs and pretty much hold their
own in these contests.

……………………………

remembering a bad laugh

This is a true story. During the eighties,
a hearing wrestling coach was selected to
coach the USA Deaflympics wrestling team.

That hearing coach knew no signs, or made
any effort to learn signs.

One of the USA Deaflympics officers asked
the wrestling coach why he wouldn’t learn
signs. He laughed very hard, thinking it
was a joke.

This wrestling coach lost his Deaflympics
coaching job.

He is still coaching hearing wrestlers.

Dedication

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to Dennis Palka,
that departed us.

Below is from Jeff Bravin, the Executive Director,
American School for the Deaf
It is with deep heart that I share this news.  I was informed Saturday
morning that Dennis Palka, our beloved alumni and faculty of ASD has
passed away.  It was unexpected and I’m still in shock.  

Dennis Palka has been with ASD for more years that any one of us can
imagine, he’s a beloved Alumni and Faculty of the school.  He has
undertaken so many roles at the school in our academic programs,
athletic programs, international programs, alumni relations among
many other activities.  He was also a former Federation President, a
leader in the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community, very involved with
Hartford Club of the Deaf.  

He sorely will be missed by everyone and may he rest in peace.  

editor’s note:
At Gallaudet, he was a member of the baseball team.

all at the same time into the Hall of Fame in 1995 Gallaudet Hall of Fame,
the first year the Hall of Fame was officially started.

Did he play football at Gallaudet? No, only because Gallaudet had no football
team at that time. Gallaudet restarted football in 1947, two years after he
graduated!

See him with #9 jersey number with his Iron Men teammates, the only Gallaudet
men’s basketball team to win the conference championship (despite a losing
regular season record). Gallaudet had subs on the bench but the coach stayed
with the five Iron Men for three full tournament games!

ASD Boys soccer team traveled to Watkinson and lost 4 to 2.  It is
not about win or lose because we decided to let all seniors to play

10 minutes. Robert Milone earned 28 saves that he faced best

Lexington 2  Solomon Schechter of Long Island 8

Jericho, N.Y.-  The field was located at Elementary school property
as Solomon Schechter’s High School is on a small parcel of land on a
hill and has no fields that was why I was surprised to find out that
their Elementary School property has huge fields! The High school is
located in Glen Cove, NY. However, our team did not do well in 1st
half that they were stunned to see Solomon Schechter team have only
10 players. We did better in 2nd half when it was too late to try and
win the game. We were down 6 to 1 at Halftime. Timar Harris made 15
saves and allowed 8 goals. Raymond Mukhailov scored the two goals for
the Bluejays at 20th minute mark and 65th minute mark. Timar Harris
dished a save as a goalkeeper as he made a LONG PASS to Raymond
across the field and Raymond went away on a breakaway and scored!
That was awesome play we made! This was Lexington’s final league play
for the season.

Season Record: 6-10   (PSAA: 1-7) 

FINAL GAME of the SEASON will occur at Lexington’s Homecoming event.

captains and “get some sleep!”
7, 16-25, 25-12, 25-12)

Hello everyone.  The MPS Lady Ghosts visited the CH-CH Chargers for a
volleyball rematch.  We had a redesigned offense to use through the
end of the season.  We managed to keep it close in the first set, and
we had an excellent second set to even things up 1-1.  For the third
and forth sets, CH-CH’s captain, #26, and her teammate, #8, upped
their serving game to keep our players off-balance.  Their teammates’
attacks also exposed holes in our digging game.  We couldn’t get back
in the offensive rhythm that we enjoyed in the first two sets.

Well done to CH-CH for their win.  Our players seem to like the new
offense – it is just a matter of getting game time in to master it.
 Speaking of game time, our next match will be tomorrow 10/23 as we
host Dexter Southfield for our first ever volleyball match together
at 4 P.M.  It looks like it will be our home finale, unless we can
get one match rescheduled.  Our season record is now 2-13.  Stats
will be updated to MaxPreps and posted next to my classroom tomorrow
morning.  Right now, this coach will take advice from one of his
captains and “get some sleep!”

MSD vs Merritt

Michigan School for the Deaf had a long trip to New Haven to play Merritt
Academy today, 10/22/15.  We arrived late and didn’t have much time to warm
up, but Tartar spirit was high.  In the first set our receiving team
percentage was at 73%, but our serving errors proved to be our downfall.
Merritt took the set 25-11.  Tartars tried to make a come back in the
second, but once again too many service errors. Merritt won 28-26.  Our
kills & receiving increased and Hannah Wears killed 5 attacks. During the
third set our shoulders were finally warmed up & our serving was better, but
Tartars had a hard time putting the ball away, with Wendy Chicky getting the
only kill this set.  Last set score was 15-25, MSD lost 0-3.  Our record is
now 7-10. Our next game is Tuesday, October 27th, a huge home event!  It’s

GAMEDAY: Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf at Siren, Wis.

Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf (4-3) at Siren, Wis. (3-4)

MSAD PPG: 43.1; Siren PPG: 31.4. MSAD PA/G: 25.9; Siren PA/G: 46.9.

TIME: 7 p.m. Friday
SITE: Siren, Wis.
WEATHER: 5 degrees, rain

The Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf looks to finish the season with
its first victory over a non-deaf school. The Trojans have scored more
than 100 combined points in their last two games, wins over Illinois and
Michigan, and look to win a third straight to end the season.
MSAD offense
 
Missing players due to illness didn.t stop the Trojans last week, as they
scored 46 points with Matt Sherman filling in at quarterback for Josh
Strom for the first time. Junior Peters continued his offensive efficiency
with eight carries for 144 yards and three touchdowns. For the season, he
has 1,088 yards and 17 touchdowns.

The offense now looks to operate at a high level against a final non-deaf
opponent in Siren, Wis. The Dragons are 3-4 and have allowed 46.9 points
per game this season. MSAD averaged 53 points scored against deaf foes and
30 against non-deaf competition.

MSAD Defense
Being shorthanded didn.t hurt on the defensive side either for MSAD
against Michigan. Kyrell Cummings had 21 tackles while Javis Johnson had
two sacks. Against deaf schools this year, MSAD only allowed 20 total
points and had two shutouts.

Against non-deaf opponents, MSAD allowed 53.7 points per game in losses to
Luck, Wis., McGregor and South Ridge. MSAD fell 60-36 to Luck, while Siren
played Luck on Oct. 9 and fell 70-6.

Rochester soccer

Yesterday was our first stop at Destination RSD Redemption. This very
field, this very team put an end to RSD’s spectacular run last year,
and gave us our first home loss in a very long time, too long to even
remember. One could say, this game held a lot of weight, a game to
not be taken lightly. It was a beautiful, cool, sunny afternoon for
this game, and one could not ask for a better day for a game of
soccer.

After our game Tuesday, I felt like RSD was playing their best
soccer, and if we played anything like we did on Tuesday, only good
would come out of this game. Everyone was early, allowing the entire
team to get another great warm-up in. Again, the team was focused and
determined to avenge these previous losses. We had a little extra
burning desire to prevail in tonight’s game, but only time will tell
if we would come through.

The first half was played more like a chess match than a soccer game,
each team countering the other’s move. Neither team could get a good
shot on net as both sides were playing spectacular defense as we
expected. Who was going to strike first and draw the first blood?!?!
In my head, I knew the team that converted first would end up winning
the game.  Coming back from a deficit would be too difficult of a
road to climb for either of the teams. Action continued on both sides
of the field with little to no shots taking place. That was until the
ball landed squarely on the foot of Paul Stewart who made a great run
near the top of 18, made a juke right, went left, and fired a bullet
with his left that bended like a parabola that found the back of the
net! The best part of that shot was what came next…..complete,
utter, silence from the sidelines from the Knights’ fans. I could
only assume it was the feeling Joe Maddon felt when Daniel Murphy hit
his 6th straight home run in the postseason (#GoMets). This
monumental goal came with only minutes to spare in the first half,
giving us all the momentum going into halftime.

From that point on, RSD dictated the tone of the game, and maintained
the lead throughout the game. In actuality though, it was an
extremely exciting game until the last whistle as the final score was
a repeat of our last encounter, 3-2, but with the WILDCATS coming out
on top this game! Ahmed sent a beautiful cross in where our “Hot
Shot” rookie sensation, Bode Aggas converted on a one-timer to give
us the 2-0 lead early in the second half. The Knights did respond on
a great play themselves after our midfield couldn’t get back in time.
It was only moments later though where Mr. Wheaties himself, Andrew
Tantalo did the very same thing as he delivered a beautiful pass to
Ahmed Mahmoud whose far post shot sailed past the goalie’s hands. The
Knights kept it exciting as they scored with 5 minutes remaining, but
RSD held on the last few minutes to continue on their journey as we
take on our only other loss of the season, Rochester Rapids!

We will be playing under the lights at Cohocton @ 8:15 PM. This
should be another spectacular game, and I hope to have a great
following for this epic matchup. See you all there!

It took some time for the Bisons to shake off the rust against the
Falk school. We haven’t played competitively in a week.  A team that
we had beaten a few times earlier this season managed to keep the
score tied 1-1 at halftime. However, once we were able to find our
“game” legs again, we started to apply more pressure until Falk broke
down.  Isa Habeeb scored his first ever “hatrick” (3 goals) and
Ibrahim Ibrahim as well as Nick Barrus each added to the scoreboard
to make the final score 5-2.  It should be noted that our team hasn’t
lost in 6 games since October 7th.  We have one more game left in our
season against the Oracle Charter School next week Tuesday at home. 
Please join and support our boys as they look to continue their
streak and finish the 2015 campaign on a high note.

Baptist Academy Crusaders for the season. MBA offense sparked and
outgunned us in the first half. (Halfback) Jerome Payne’s loft pass
connected (Wide Receiver) Ben Beyer for 28 yards in the first quarter
that should be easy touchdown as Ben forced to slow down and came
back to the ball target due to short distance into the air.  Our boys
kept to battle through the whole quarter even though we had few
opportunities to score a touchdown from our red zone area. Ben Beyer
caught  twice for 33 yards. (Linebacker) Jerome Payne led defensive
Firebirds for 6 solo tackles, 2 assist tackles, 1 forced fumble and 1
fumble recovery. (Cornerback) Perles Payne registered 5 solo tackles
and 1 assist tackle. I would like to say  ”Thank You” for your
supports from our fans, parents and WSD Alumni.

Location: Marie Philip School, Framingham, MA
Opponent: Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall (Waltham, MA)
Result: CH-CH won 3-0 (25-8, 25-23, 25-15)

Today the MPS Lady Ghosts had a home match against our opponent, the
CH-CH Chargers.

In the first set, their #26 opened with 15 consecutive service points
and several aces to get the Chargers ahead 16-0.  We could not get
much done offensively and they cruised to a 25-8 win.

The second set was much better.  We trailed CH-CH by only a few
points for half of the set.  Sabrina Rodrigues, serving from the back
of the order, surprised them with three jump serve aces.  Kayla
LoBrutto and Norma Aldana had 3 service points each and we had a
23-20 lead.  Unfortunately, we made a service error and had
challenges with our substitutions that prevented us from taking those
last two points.  CH-CH made a nice comeback to take the second set.

Our players were not themselves after that second set loss, even
though every day high school volleyball teams come back from 2-0 set
deficits to win.  LoBrutto and Rodrigues made some nice passes as
setters and we capitalized on a few of them.  Unfortunately, the
Chargers’ captain for the set, #26, turned a slim 14-13 lead into a
nice 23-13 lead.  We called it a night and CH-CH scored a 3-set
sweep.

Speaking as their coach, our girls are capable of much more than our
results showed today.  We will have a long holiday weekend to rest
and then host Gann at home at 4:00 P.M. Tuesday October 13.  Our
season record is now 1-7.

Rochester soccer

This week’s games were just a formality in preparation for RSD’s biggest
home game of the season against our cross-town rival, the Scarlet Knights.
This game that will take place this Tuesday at 4:30 PM and will be our
first true test to keep the home streak alive. If there was ONE game to
come and watch the Wildcats at home, this would be the game to attend!
Mark the calendar, grab your lawn chairs, and come out and support our
team.

This past Tuesday, RSD traveled to Hope Hall for the first time ever for a
friendly non-league game. With the big game coming up, we were able to
rest a lot of our starters who have had some aches and pains from the
arduous season which was nice, also allowing those that do not get much
playing time, a lot of real-game experience.

Our first two goals of the game were quite interesting as Paul Stewart
assisted Andrew “Mr. Wheaties” Tantalo and for the second goal, younger
brother, Joe Stewart assisted younger brother, Ben Tantalo in his first
Varsity debut. You do not see that happen too often. From there, we easily
went on to win 6-1 as Paul notched another goal as well as Thomas Coates,
Bode Aggas, and John Stewart.

Daniel Ritz and Dylan Benjamin played in net, and both played fantastic.

Final score: 6-1

On Wednesday, RSD traveled to SMSD for their homecoming. Unfortunately,
for them, RSD swept them in all three contests (Varsity Volleyball and
Soccer as well as Middle School soccer).

Ahmed Mahmoud notched his 20th and 21st goal of the season. Hot shot
rookie sensation, Bode Aggas also contributed two goals towards the
victory. Up and coming superstar, Alexander Michalek also contributed a
goal as well. RSD went on to win 5-1 to bring our overall record to 10-1!

Final score: 5-1

Overall record: 10-1

St Mary’s soccer

The SMSD Bison’s collectively didn’t play well yesterday against
Christian Academy.  We struggled in every facet of the game and
unfortunately it resulted in our opponent running away with the 8-3
victory.  There were some bright spots in the loss which included
Chris Martin getting his first goal of the season and then scoring
his second of the match 10 minutes later.  The coaching staff
explained to our players that in competitive sports, sometimes you
can have a “bad day” no matter how you prepare or think that you are
ready.  The important thing is that you learn from your mistakes and
that you “brush it off” and move on to the next game.  The Bisons
don’t have time to dwell on our defeat because we are back on the
field today for our Homecoming against our biggest rival, Rochester
School for the Deaf.  Please come out to the field and show your
support.
 

Overall record: 1-9

N.F.C.A.A. record: 1-6

 

Individual accomplishments:

Chris Martin- 2 goals (including 1st of the season)

Ibrahim Ibrahim- 1 goal (4th of season)

Christian Lawrence- 15 saves

In our second game in as many days, the Bison’s took on the RSD in
our annual fall Homecoming match.  Having just lost to the Wildcats a
few weeks ago in their Homecoming tournament, our squad was looking
to improve on our previous outing.  Unfortunately, with some key
personnel out of the line-up it was difficult to match-up evening
against our rival.  Rochester School for the Deaf controlled the game
down in our defensive end for the majority of the contest and were
able to tally 4 goals.  Our offensive attack was only able to muster
2 shots all game including a penalty shot from Chris Martin which was
initially saved by the Wildcats keeper.  However their goalie wasn’t
able to control the rebound from the penalty kick and Chris was able
to tap it in to register our only goal of the game.  On the brighter
side, it was Christopher’s  3rd goal in two games.  Our third and
final game of the week as well as our final league game before the
playoffs is this afternoon against the Stanley Falk school.  Please
come outside and wish us luck.

Overall record: 1-10

N.F.C.A.A. record: 1-6

Chris Martin- 1 goal (3rd of the season)

Macomber.

to date, as of June 26th, he is 7th ranked driver
at the Hoosier Park in Indiana. This list has many,
many racers, most of them very unsuccessful.

He has won 50 times in 428 races for purses that total
$535,217

In terms of purse earnings only, he is 4th ranked

This means he earns more than some of the drivers that
outranked him!

Question and Answer

Q. What trend in deaf schools soccer may be
worrisome?

A. Several soccer-playing deaf schools do not
have enough players to field 11-man teams.
As a result, they play 9-man, or even 8-man
soccer. Luckily, the 11-man schools, sensitive
about this issue, have been willing to play
8 man or 9 man with these shorthanded schools.

DeafDigest Sports’ comments:

While DeafDigest Sports is not involved with it, it should
be noted that this media awarded the Team of the
Year honors in football, volleyball, boys’ basketball and
girls’ basketball to Maryland SD. DeafDigest Sports does
not believe that the list of schools for the deaf should
be split into two divisions – all deaf schools, both big
and small, are equal even when enrollment numbers vary.

One of the key criteria is – ability to defeat hearing
teams, regardless of the sport.

A deaf school going fully unbeaten in an all-deaf schedule
does not win too many points with DeafDigest Sports.

The Deaf Basketball United Kingdom oversees British
deaf basketball activity.

Yet that nation only has four registered deaf basketball
teams!

These clubs are:
London Beard
London Lions
London Lionesses (women’s)
Preston Pride

Deaf basketball is not a priority – cricket, soccer and rugby is
