Dedication

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to Jerry Berlowitz,
one of Gallaudet’s finest fifties/sixties athlete that
departed us.

In football, he was a fierce tacklng linebacker that
intercepted an important pass for touchdown to help Gallaudet
defeat Delaware Valley 14-13 in 1957 in probably the biggest
upset in football history. Gallaudet was 0-6 and scoreless
in the previous season, and Delaware Valley, after the
upset was 5-2-1 for the season.

In wrestling he was the Metropolitian area champion in
his weight class.

In club baseball, he was the team’s leading hitter one
season (the club team disbanded after the 1959 season).

random deafsports thoughts

It was mentioned that Jerry Berlowitz (see dedication)
scored a touchdown off a pass interception to help
Gallaudet pull off a stunning upset over Delaware
Valley College.

Actually what happened was that Jerry blew his
pass coverage – went to the wrong zone on the
field (someone else’s zone) and for some
reason the Delaware Valley quarterback threw
a pass in his direction).

If Jerry followed his correct pass coverage,
the upset would have never taken place!!!!!!!

This week and weekend, we’re hosting the third annual CSD Classic Boys and
Girls Basketball Tournament.  The CSD Boys won the first-ever tournament
in 2016 and then the Girls grabbed the title last year.  This year, we
have an exciting field of eight small schools on both brackets (see
attached).  Both teams are looking for a lot of volunteers to help cover
this tournament such as admissions and Eagles Nest, if you’re interested,
please email jweinstock@csdf-cde.ca.gov<mailto:jweinstock@csdf-cde.ca.gov>
and dhamilton@csdf-cde.ca.gov<mailto:dhamilton@csdf-cde.ca.gov>

Let’s have a great week and carry on to the momentum!

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK: Samuel Brown – our Junior Wrestler has been commended
by his coaches for a while about his positive spirits and keeping the team
morale high every day.  This is exactly what CSD Athletics strongly
believes in because this is probably the only thing that we can control!
Additionally, Sam started the day strong at the Battle of California with
a quick pin!

RISD girls’ basketball team traveled to Marie Katzenbach School for the
Deaf in New Jersey — we opened up our tournament against Rochester School
for the Deaf, one of the favorites in ESDAA Division II Girls Basketball -
so this would be a great test for our girls.

We struggled with the press and couldn’t find the basket until after
halftime when our offense started to click and make some good passes &
decisions. RSD would win the game by the final score of 33-10.

Competing in the 3rd/4th place game, our RISD girls team played against a

young, their players were very hungry and aggressive — they definitely
gave us a good run for our money!

The game was tied at 6-6 at halftime and we were able to grab ahold of the
lead through the third-quarter thanks to good free throw shooting from our
forward Melissa E-G and ended up winning a nail biter, 15-14. Yasmin S.

Our Lady Rangers basketball team travelled to Little Rock this past
weekend to compete in the annual Southwest Classic.  The team started off
the weekend participating in the Free Throw and 3-Point Competitions.  The
team combined for 54 total free throws out of 100 to win the competition.
The 54 total free throws was the highest team score of the competition,
including the boys’ side.  Our three 3-Point Competition shooters were
Leila Sicoli, Brianne Leiker, and Ashlene Etkie.  The trio combined for
5-of-15 (33%) which was enough to best Oklahoma (4), Arkansas (2), and
Louisiana (2).

Our team played balanced basketball with disciplined defense, smart
offensive possessions, and high level execution of the game.  Each player
that went to Arkansas contributed significant minutes and contributed to
our success.  We look forward to carrying that momentum to the three
important upcoming games before winter break.

Our record is now 13-0, best start in school history.  We look forward to
seeing you at the games!

held by Jonathan Tikhonoff and set on Oct. 14, 2017.

Sealts was not done as he won the 100-yard backstroke (55.74), 200-yard IM
(2:12.14), 500-yard freestyle (5:26.82) and was a member of two
first-place relay teams.

Sealts joined freshman Barry McGrain III (Lakeville, N.Y.), freshmen AJ
Markel (University Park, Md.) and Alton Markel (Buda, Texas) on the
200-yard medley relay as the Bison posted a first-place time of 1:56.12.

part of newspaper story

‘Disability does not exist’ for Indiana Deaf’s ‘dream team’

The Indiana Deaf girls basketball team is off to an 8-0 start, but it’s
about more than hoops.

This isn’t just a feel-good story. The Orioles win, and do plenty of it.
The school has banners commemorating deaf-school titles – five in
football, one in boys cross-country, six in wrestling, eight in boys
basketball, two in baseball, 15 in boys track and field, two in girls
track and field, eight in volleyball, three in girls basketball, two in
softball, one in girls swimming.

If you’re keeping track that’s 53 titles. National titles.

Rochester girls’ basketball

The girls traveled to NJ this weekend for the annual Tip Off tournament.
On
Friday we were matched up with Rhode Island.  The wildcats came out strong
and took an 8-0 lead in the first quarter. Our defense was solid and we
limited their scoring opportunities to just a handful. Although we were up
8-0 we still did not feel we were playing well on offense. We had several
missed opportunities at close range. The wildcats picked it up a bit in
the
second half and went on to win 33-10. Courtney Gentzke led the way with 9
points. The win propelled us into the championship games against the home
team, NJ.

Kane-3 pts

Ward-5 pts

Girod-4 pts

Alvarez-4 pts

Maquette-2 pts

Ott-2 pts

McPherson-2 pts

Championship game

We were hyped up and ready to go for this game, maybe a bit too much!
Although we took a 9-5 lead after the first quarter we were not satisfied
with our play. Several turnovers and missed shots plagued the wildcats. We
were able to make some adjustments but turnovers were still an issue. We
went into halftime with a 19-14 lead. Coach Palmer knew we could play
better and stressed the importance of seeing the open player and taking
care of the ball. We played pretty steady in the second half and went on
to
a 31-21 victory. Courtney again led the way with 12 points while McKenna
Girod chipped in 6 points. We had 7 players contribute points in the win.
In rebounding the wildcats were led by McKenna with 10.

We are now 4-0 and will travel to Houghton on Tuesday.

random deafsports thoughts

when mainstreamed athletes are recruited to play
sports at hearing colleges, are they always aware
of their rights and needs in the classroom and
during practices (interpreters, CART, captions,
etc)?

DeafDigest Sports thinks it is not always that so.

Some get accommodations only when they require it,
but when they don’t require it, they are not given
it.

random deafsports thoughts

Remembering a well known athletic director
years ago before he retired.

That athletic director hated girls’ sports
and would not permit the school to establish
a girls’ basketball team – even though Title 9
required it.

The school waited for him to retire. When he
retired on December 31st, the last day of
the year, the school immediately established
a girls’ basketball team when classes resumed
after the Holidays!

On Thursday December 6th, your Missouri School for the Deaf Middle School
Eagles had a tough game against the Missouri Military Academy. Our first
half was real sloppy and it looked like the team had given up or never
played together before. The second half was a different story. Our Eagles
held MMA to only 3 points and scored 13 points through team work, focus,
and heads up ball play. Highlights of the game:

-Allen Cass: 11 points, 3 rebounds, 5 steals
-Nina Beamish: 2 points, 1 rebound, 3 steals
-Hailey Luper: 3 rebounds, 3 steals

random deafsports thoughts

There was a story of a crazy basketball fan,
mocking a free-throw shooter’s medical
condition in hopes of having him miss the
shot.

The fan was punished.

It happened to DeafDigest Sports editor,
who coached the Maryland School for the Deaf
JV basketball team as a young man many years
ago.

The Maryland JV defender, in a game against
West Virginia School for the Deaf & Blind,
made a gesture that the play has stopped
because of a referee’s whistle. He was
hoping the West Virgina player would be
called for traveling with the ball.

The Maryland JV coach didn’t like it and
benched the player for the rest of the game,
even when his deaf parents were watching
their son play.

December 3 vs Providence

Score: FSDB 20, Providence 56

Yesterday was our first district game. We played against a ranked team. We
prevailed with our stingy defense by limiting Providence to 7 points by
the end of 1st quarter, and then they had 22 points by end of 2nd quarter.
During first half, we had many
shooting mistakes. We missed many layups. We were very proud of our girls.
However, girls ran out of gas in the second half. We lost our touch of
having a stingy defense. Olivia Brown led the team with 8 points. Lourdine
had 4 points, but she led with 15
rebounds. This weekend, we will be at the Hackney Classic in Alabama.
Georgia School for the Deaf will be our next game, and we will play them
on Friday at 3pm CST.

St. Mary’s Girls Basketball Results

The Lady Bisons took on the West Seneca Christian Falcons this afternoon
in their season opener.  The Falcons had size and numbers on their end of
the court.  The Lady Bisons were up for the challenge though.  The game
started with The Falcons taking control early and owning the rebounds on
offense and defense. The size and speed of West Seneca was too much for
the Lady Bisons who never gave up and played tough defense.  Emma Foster
was all over the guards and played tencacious defense.  Julia Bronneberg
played hard inside among the bigger players.  Kioney  Alvira-Jurado(5
points) handled the point guard position and helped find Cami Cole who led
The Lady Bisons with 8 points.  Elise Watson provided leadership and
experience to the younger players.  Aleyshka Rivera-Nieves, Briona Zuppa
and Abigail Northway all saw playing  time as well.  The result was a
33-13 loss to West Seneca Christian.

Our record is 0 wins and 1 loss.  Our next game is December 13th against
NYSSD/Rome.

The December 6th game against Global Charter has been rescheduled to Jan

St. Mary’s Boys Basketball Result

The SMSD Bisons had their season opener against a tough Falk team on 12/4.
The Bisons hung with Falk for a back and forth hard fought first quarter.
After the first quarter Falk was able to build a lead by putting together
different combinations on the offensive end, as well as forcing turnovers
from the Bisons.  The Bisons fought hard, but were unable to comeback from
the deficit created. Nick Barrus led the team with 14 points, followed by
Isa Habeeb with 12 points and Michael Norris put together 8 points and 9
rebounds. Kassim Kassim had great hustle and Ryan Brzezinski battled hard
in the paint. Adnan Abdi and Givon Blackwell came off the bench for the
Bisons and impacted both ends of the court. The Bisons look to improve
from this game and hope for a different result when the face Falk again
later in the season.

The Bisons next game is Thursday, December 6th at home against Gow.

random deafsports thoughts

cannot help but wonder about the late Marvin Marshall,
a World War II years Gallaudet boxer, who won the
DC Golden Gloves championship and competed in the
national Golden Gloves championship.

He had about 500-600 amateur fights, starting
from his days as student at Utah School for the
Deaf and Blind. After graduating from Gallaudet
he stopped boxing and began a career in education
of the deaf. Did his face show scars or his mind
having problems because of blows to his head?

No.

book on history of Gallaudet men’s basketball

DeafDigest Sports editor is busy, working on a
book on history of Gallaudet men’s basketball.

Gallaudet played its first game in 1904. That
means this sport has existed for 114 years.

A committee is working together on the book.

The goal is to have the book published by
February 2020.

If you have played varsity basketball at
Gallaudet and have stories and tales to share,
or have good pictures, please email:

The Roosters played their first game of the season against Marie Philip
School at the New England Tip off Tournament hosted by Horace Mann School
for the Deaf in Boston. MPS jumped to a quick lead with their height
advantage and skills and held a commanding 32 to 4 at the half.

Our Roosters did not stop playing and worked hard until the very end of
the
game. Jayden E. scored 5 points and 4 rebounds and Timothy J. added 4
points.

The Roosters and the Cougars went back and forth to a halftime tie at

and increased our lead – then we had to fight off HMS in the end to earn
the 40-37 win. Jayden E. earned Tournament All-Star honors with a
season-high 23 points and 23 rebounds. Timothy J. contributed with 10

Tournament hosted by Horace Mann School for the Deaf at Emmanuel College.
This would be a good test for our girls after a month’s worth of
practices.
We jumped out to an early 3-0 lead, and our defense stood strong against
MPS’ offensive gameplan and the score was 3-3 halfway through the first
half. But MPS eventually clicked on their offense and they pulled away to
a
15-3 halftime lead en route to a 28-10 victory.

one. HMS got the first points of the game, but RISD would proceed to score
the next 7 points to coast to a 7-2 halftime lead. We continued to play
all
of our players in order to get them valuable game experience and we were
able to win 16-2. Lillian K. earned Tournament All-Star honors for her

Texas basketball & wrestling

Varsity Girls Basketball -

Our varsity girls basketball team headed to Universal City, TX (right
outside of San Antonio) this past weekend to participate in the FEAST
Patriots tournament.  This was the second year of participating after we
finished in second place last year to Austin Royals.  We opened our two
games on Friday with Pool B play against New Braunfels Christian Academy
(won 43-20) and then KIPP University (won 36-11).  We finished first in
our pool and would play against the second place team, BASIS Shavano, of
Pool A, on Saturday morning.

On Saturday morning, we came out hot and ready to play against BASIS and
made quick work, winning 43-12, and advancing to the championship game
against the host school – FEAST Patriots.  The championship game was a
good back and forth battle between both teams.  We took the lead early and
did not let up at any point during the game but the FEAST players made us
earn every point.  We scored a last minute basket to go up by eight points
and FEAST ran out of time.

The coaches were really pleased with how the team played on Saturday.
There was an All-Tournament Team medal that we could not decide on who
deserved it because it was truly an all around team effort – looking at
the stat sheet, we had even scoring through all four games.  The girls
showed the true definition of team basketball this past weekend and we are
excited about the rest of the season.

TSD d. New Braunfels 43-20
TSD d. Austin KIPP  36-11
TSD d. BASIS Shavano 45-12
Championship Game
TSD d. FEAST Patriots 45-37

random deafsports thoughts

There was a newspaper story today of a Dallas Cowboys staff
member standing on the New Orleans Saints sidelines. People
were suspicious as to why was that person standing in
enemy turf. He was not a coach, but part of the Cowboys
half time entertainment planning group.

This reminds DeafDigest Sports editor of an incident
involving a new Gallaudet football coach years ago.
During a Gallaudet football practice, a stranger was
jogging on the track. No one knew who he was and the
nervous coach confronted him, asking him who he was.

It was a new Gallaudet employee, on the job only a few
days. He just wanted to do some jogging. Convinced,
the new coach let him continue jogging.
