GU drops two on the road at Penn St.-Abington

ABINGTON, Pa. – The Gallaudet University softball team traveled north to
face Penn St.-Abington in a North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC)
doubleheader on Wednesday and lost 7-5 and 10-1 in five innings.

Gallaudet (11-14, 3-5 NEAC) held a 5-3 lead in the first game before the
Nittany Lions (5-10) scored twice in the bottom of the fifth and sixth to
capture the win. Penn St.-Abington ran away with the second game as they
scored runs in all four innings to end the game early due to the
eight-run, five-inning mercy rule.

TAKOMA PARK, Md. – The Gallaudet softball team and Washington Adventist
University played a non-conference doubleheader under the lights here

part of newspaper story

Redeemer Lutheran boys play at national tournament

year.

The Redeemer Rams boys middle school basketball team completed a
successful season, emerging undefeated as first-time conference champions.

The team was invited to a national tournament in Valparaiso, Ind., hosted
by the Lutheran Basketball Association of America.

The team did not place in the national tournament, but it was the learning
experience that counted most.

Despite a 10-0 record, the team’s season did not start as the Rams hoped.

Their first game was a scrimmage against the Western Pennsylvania School
for the Deaf. Loewe said as he walked into their gym, he distinctly
remembered seeing a banner that read “2016 National Champions.”

Needless to say, the Rams lost by 20 points.
………………………………………………

scheduling mishap

There was a story of a hearing soccer team in
Turkey getting their next game dates mixed up
and as a result, did not show up on the
scheduled soocer match. It cost them the
league championship.

Can’t happen to the deaf? Wrong! It happened
to Gallaudet women’s soccer team about 15 years
ago. The team did not show up for the first
round of conference playoffs thinking the
game was on a different date!

Gallaudet baseball

Bison doubled up by No. 24 Catholic, 18-9

WASHINGTON – Gallaudet University made the short trip over to The Catholic
University of America to face the No. 24 Cardinals in a non-conference
game here Wednesday.

The Bison (3-17-1) fell behind early 7-0 and later trailed 16-5 before
falling 18-9 as the game was called for darkness in the bottom of the
eighth inning.

GU scored four runs in the fifth inning as senior first baseman Justin
Strong (Charlotte, N.C.) delivered a two-run double to center field.
Sophomore Winston Lane (Brooklyn Center, Minn.) and senior Dylan Hayes
(Endicott, N.Y.) both drove in runs to cut Catholic’s lead to 10-5 before
the Cardinals added six runs in the bottom half.

Gallaudet added two more runs in the sixth and seventh innings. Strong
brought home two runs in the sixth on a single. In the seventh, a Bison
runner scored from third base on a passed ball and junior Cameron Upton
(Vicksburg, Miss.) singled in senior Kyle Gumm (Dallas, Texas), who had
walked for the fourth time in the game.

Sophomore Frank Diaz (Far Rockaway, N.Y.) took the loss as the starter
lasted three innings where he allowed seven runs (five earned) on eight
hits, two walks and one strikeout.

BISON TRACKS

Strong went 3-for-5 with four RBI

Gumm scored three times

GU had two extra-base hits

deaf collegiate hockey player

Garrett Gintoli

freshman

men’s hockey

Milwaukee School of Engineering

If the name Gintoli is familiar, yes, his older
deaf brother Peter played a season in minor
league hockey last year.

his profile is this:
High School: Played hockey, soccer, and lacrosse for Notre Dame Fairfield
High School … won bronze medals with Team USA at the Deaflympics.

this season:
he played all 27 of his team’s 27 games

he scored 5 goals

he assisted on 11 goals

and is pretty much a gentleman on the ice, only having spent
just eight minutes in the penalty box!

Kris Martin

Burlington, Ontario

auto racer

no real updates on him on any of these web sites or on the
social media

………………………………………….

late 19th century/early 20th century deaf players in
major league baseball

based on a web posting

for some reason there were quite a few deaf major league
players during late 19th century/early 20th century
as compared to the past 75 years.

In fact, the 1901 New York Giants (now San Francisco)
team had three deaf pitchers. The best one was
Dummy Taylor; the two other deaf pitchers quickly
flamed out.

Why so many in these early years?

Possibly because many deaf schools had baseball
teams; it was these schools’ primary sport as
football and basketball was not yet popular until
later in the 20th century. The popularity of baseball
gave the better deaf players more opportunities
for development of their playing skills.

And another matter – age. Many deaf school graduates
were already adults (age 21) and they were able to
play this sport for more than just four seasons.

player in indoor football

Tee Shepard is listed on the current roster
of the Bloomington Edge (Illinois), a team in
Indoor Football League.

Indoor/arena football teams do not do good a job
of keeping current these game updates and stats
on their web sites. Tee was supposed to be playing
last season with Arizona Rattlers, but his game
stats have been hidden on the team web site.

He blew his collegiate career, wasting time transferring
between Notre Dame, a community college and then
University of Mississippi. By that time, his 4-year
window expired. He had hoped to be drafted by a NFL
team but it was not to be.

Anyway, is he playing this season with Bloomington
Edge? We shall find out.

deaf quarterback coach trains a hearing quarterback

Craig Bryden who is deaf and was on the golf team
during his collegiate days, is a private quarterback
coach.

One of his hearing quarterback students is Juan Nunez.

Nunez has signed to play for Husson University in
Maine.

What about it?

Husson and Gallaudet are members of the same
conference – Eastern Collegiate Football Conference.

Gallaudet and Husson both have a game against
each other on November 3rd on Husson’s home turf.

Both teams have been very competitive while
playing against each other for years.

Will be very interesting to see how would
Nunez perform against a deaf team, especially
when he was trained by a deaf quarterback
coach!

Craig Bryden? He coached sports at Governor
Baxter School for the Deaf and American School
for the Deaf in the past.

deaf emergency goalie in hockey

there was a story of an emergency goalie being used in the
game with 14 minutes remaining, and helping Chicago
Blackhawks defeat Winnipeg Jets, 6-2, blocking seven
shots and allowing no goals

It happened to the Gallaudet hockey team in the late
sixties. The regular goalie never showed up for some
reason, and Gallaudet had no back up goalie. A
third string defenseman became the emergency goalie,
but without goalie gear and pads – just using his
hockey stick to slap away shots.

Gallaudet narrowly won 4-2 against one of the league’s
weakest teams. The Gallaudet players changed its
strategy to just focus on tight man to man defense, not
allowing any fast break shots against them. It worked.

The next game, the regular goalie showed up.

deaf coach with high school basketball team

Team has been led Head Coach Brian Cronin, whose
leadership has achieved the Saints’ winningest season under his tenure,
marking their third straight 20-win season.

After growing up with a hearing impairment, he found his own understanding
of the game as he played in Clinton Public Schools and Madison Ridgeland
Academy. Cronin then received basketball scholarships to Holmes Community
College and Mississippi College, playing for both schools before being
recruited to Brigham Young University for his senior year.

Cronin represented roughly one million deaf Americans while playing on the
USA Deaflympics Basketball Team, bringing home a gold medal for his
performance on the court.

Fremont sports

Now that the Girls Basketball team has ended their season, we’re
officially completely into spring sports right now.  All of the Winter
sports athletes, coaches, parents, and supporters deserve a big high five
for their commitment during a long season!  This week, there is a lot of
rain in the forecast but we hope to get a couple of games in.  Then if it
holds up, this weekend, the Varsity Softball team has an exciting matchup
with Geyserville in the second game of the doubleheader, a rematch of last
year’s incredible NCS Championship game.

Athlete of the Week – REZA MOSHER.  The coaches was very impressed with
her rapid improvements on her long distance track times and commitment
with the team so far.  The Athletics Department can vouch that her
performance definitely comes from her wonderful attitude as she always
shows up friendly and says hi to everybody.  This is the kind of
student-athlete that everyone wants to have on their team,
congratulations!

a dedication

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to
Jim Renshaw that departed us in January.

This dedication is belated because DeafDigest
Sports did not know about it until today.

Jim, who was only 5’11 tall, was one of the
mainstays of the mighty Los Angeles Club for
the Deaf teams that won national championships
in the late sixties.

He was not a great shooter, but a great scorer,
just knew how to score.

When opponents ganged up on 6’9 Leon Grant,
Jim took over the scoring responsibilities,
forcing opponents to spread out their
defensive alignments.

Jim was inducted into American Athletic
Association Hall of Fame.

………………………………………

puzzling historical claim

which deaf sports club is the oldest in the world?

A deaf sports club in England said it was founded sometime
during 1870′s.

A Paralympics article said the first sports club for
the deaf was founded in Berlin, Germnay in 1883.

Which is correct?

………………………………………..

Will John Becker stay at Vermont?

John Becker has been mentioned in University
of Pittsburgh’s search for new coach

Today’s posting is this:

John Becker at Vermont is interesting. He has had a lot of success with
the Catamounts and reportedly turned down Duquesne last year. The one
hang-up is his resume: he has been really good at Vermont since 2011, but
his history prior to that looks like this:

2006-11 – assistant at Vermont
2004-06 – assistant at Catholic University
1997-99 – head coach at Gallaudet
1994-97 – assistant at Gallaudet

(If you’re not familiar, Gallaudet is a school for the deaf and hard of
hearing in Washington, D.C.)

note:

look at his years; he was not involved with basketball
between 2000 and 2003 and he certainly caught up in
a short time!

He has never forgotten his Gallaudet roots; still remembering
ASL and has always socialized with Gallaudet coaches during
basketball conventions. And he was a guest at the Gallaudet
Athletic Hall of Fame ceremony last year. This is the reason
why Vermont is one of the favorite teams that deaf fans root
for!
