Fremont sports

It’s a big week!  Today we have our senior night in softball against
Livermore Valley Charter Prep and today will also determine the league
championship because we both are 8-1 and we do not have a league softball
playoffs yet.  Then we host the league baseball playoffs this year and our
first matchup is also against LVCP on Wednesday at 3:30pm.

This Saturday, six Track and Field Athletes – Daijuhnae Williams, Calel
Aramboles, Hannah Wetzel, Leonardo Vergara, Raven Lynch, and Ashley
Locatelli were among our top finishers in the league and they will go to
compete in the NCS Class A Championships in Santa Rosa!  Special
recognition goes to Calel for breaking our school’s discus record of
159’10″ that was held by Tim Siaki for 35 long years and Daijuhnae for
breaking her own school record in triple jump with a 37’4.75″ but don’t be
surprised if more records fall the next few weeks.

Athlete of the Week – HANNAH WETZEL.  Our junior Track and Field Athlete
has consistently been an all-around top performer ever since her career
started.  At the League Championships at Kezar last weekend, she went 2nd
place in the High Jump with a 4’7″, 7th place in the Triple Jump with
32’07.05″, and 8th place in the Long Jump with a 14’05″.  We are very
confident that Hannah will continue working hard in the classroom and
throughout the sectionals as always!

Marie Philip track

In Frederick, Maryland, the Athletic Director of the Maryland School for
the Deaf (MSD), Andy Bonheyo, hosted the Eastern Schools for the Deaf
Athletic Association (ESDAA) track and field tournament. The Athletic
Director invited deaf and hard of hearing student-athletes and coaches to
ESDAA from The American School for the Deaf, Pennsylvania School for the
Deaf (ASD), Cleary School for the Deaf (NY), St Mary’s School for the Deaf
(SMSD), New York School for the Deaf – Fanwood, Rhode School for the Deaf,
New Jersey School for The Deaf , Lexington School for the Deaf (LSD), 
Rochester School for the Deaf, Mill Neck Manor School for the Deaf and our
school. They came together to compete against each other at the same time.

On Friday, 3200 meter run and all the field events began at 6:30 pm after
coaches had a brief discussion about points of emphasis for the 3200 meter
run and field events.  They watched the national anthem by MSD Cadets
Corps. The weather was a little cold with a few brief showers. The triple
jump for girls and boys, shot put for boys and discus for girls events
were resumed on Saturday because it was hard to see the measure of the
throw and jump distances in the evening. The deaf and hard of hearing
student – athletes socialized at a social gathering while the coaches had
discussions about Saturday’s field and running events. The three field
events started at 9 o’clock in the morning.  The hurdle and running events
started at noon till 4 pm on Saturday. The rain stopped after 11 am.

The senior student- athlete, Bryce Callahan received two 6th place
finishes for 200 meter dash and shot put. The other 4 MPS track
individuals were ranked below 6th place.

I thoroughly enjoyed teaching my track and field team with types of
throwing, running skills and drills at practice, and also to watch them
competing with others in the track and field competitions through all the 
spring pre-season and season.

My coach assistant, Sara Patterson is proud that Bryce earned two 6th
place finishes in 200 meter dash and shot put especially since his 1st
year track participation during his last year as a senior.  She made two
comments about the Lady Ghost freshmen, Lily Fruguglietti and the 4
Galloping Ghost athletes for a running relay. Lily did an awesome
performance in 200 meter; Jasper, Christopher, Luke and Bryce did a great
job in the 400 meter relay but they didn’t qualify for the final.

I asked my assistant coach and 4 MPS student-athletes, ” What is your most
positive experience of ESDAA track and field tournament?” I have their
comments here.

Coach assistant: I was impressed with competitors from 12 different
schools for the deaf who competed against each other and the smooth MSD
organization for EDSAA track and field tournament.

Jasper: personal growth about competition and performance skills.

Lily: new experience in ESDAA track and field competition and personal
growth.

Bryce: personal growth on track and field and new experience in the big
track and field competition.

Amogne: Meeting with new friends

I want to thank my assistant coach, Sara Patterson, volunteer assistant
coach, Annie Amato for teaching shot put, discus skills, and drills; and
two subs, Mary Grace and Pam Jones for helping me.

Here are the team champions and the results of MPS individuals.

part of newspaper story

The Greater Cincinnati Golf Association had to squeeze every last ounce of
daylight out of Monday, but it got most of the work done at Maketewah
Country Club for America’s largest U.S. Open local qualifier.

A grand total of 168 entrants was whittled down to 10 qualifiers and an
alternate Monday at Maketewah, with one alternate still to be decided
Tuesday morning via the continuation of a playoff that was suspended after
9 p.m.

The playoff, which produced the 10th and final automatic qualifier and
first alternate just after sunset Monday, was called due to darkness.
Rules officials, patrons and competitors were using cell phone flashlights
to locate balls on fairways and greens at that point.

The qualifiers advance to the sectional qualifying round of the 2017 U.S.
Open.

Before darkness enveloped the competition, players lapped up sunshine as
nine qualifier spots were awarded.

Andy Roberts and Trey Shirley tied for the qualifier victory after posting
three-under 68′s on the day.

Andrew Dorn (two-under 69) was alone in third place while Ben Sattler,
Daniel Stanley, Davis Baxter, Kevin Hall and Austin Bagshaw (Eastern
Kentucky) tied for fourth place (minus-one 70).

Baxter is a University of Cincinnati product.

Hall, deaf since the age of two, is a product of Winton Woods and Ohio
State.

part of newspaper story

There will be a new logo on the Cleveland Cavaliers’ jerseys when they
take the court next season: the Goodyear wingfoot logo

note:

In the late 1910′s and throughout the 1920′s, deaf employees
at Goodyear tire factory had their own semi pro football
team.

The team had an overall winning record and won several
semi pro championships, and had several games with
Akron Pros, an early years NFL team.

Sponsorship? Not one cent from the Goodyear corporate
management, nor praise or acknowledgement from these
executives. In other words, the deaf team was totally
ignored – and there are no markers nor reminders
in the Akron area on the existence of this deaf team.

a dedication

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to James Bonds,
long time athletic director/football coach at Illinois
School for the Deaf that departed us.

The football stadium is named after him.

http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/myjournalcourier/obituary.aspx?n=james-d-bonds-jim&pid=185331294&fhid=7741

said a past football player:
He was a good coach with discipline; players
learned a lot from him. If the state had the playoff
system in the past, ISD would have been in it.
He is the winningest football coach in school history.

Gallaudet baseball

Gallaudet’s Cameron Upton selected to All-NEAC second team for second
straight year

GANSEVOORT, N.Y. – The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) released
its 2017 baseball all-conference awards on Wednesday and Gallaudet
University sophomore shortstop Cameron Upton (Vicksburg, Miss.) was named
to the all-conference second team for the second consecutive year.

full story at:
http://www.gallaudetathletics.com/sports/bsb/2016-17/releases/allneac

note:
Cameron is tough; he was severely spiked on his ankle on second base in
the first game of season. He tried to play through his injury but couldn’t
and was taken out of the game. He couldn’t play the second game. Yet he
came back, played through these season-long annoying bruises and aches.
And he even served as one of the team pitchers when coach Curtis Pride
needed help on the mound.

USADB national tournament championship game

better late than never since this championship
game took place few weeks ago.

Buzz was that the Austin team would dominate the
tournament. Yet the tournament scores did not
disclose Austin as the name of the team. It
actually was ATX which stood for Austin, Texas.

DeafDigest Sports editor thought ATX was something
like a hot rod automobile club or a motorcycle
club!

Anyway the team, dominated by Macam Macam and
Dwight Brewington reached the championship finals,
facing DWV (District of Columbia, Maryland
and Virginia).

It was a low scoring championship game that DMV
won. Widely touted Macam only scored 12 points
before fouling out.

Why the low score? According to a basketball coach
that watched the championship game, it was a
combination of fatique (playing too many games
within a short time span), high intensity defense
by the winning DWV team, and an off night.

The coach continued – saying that ATX played
too much isolation offense as opposed to team
ball where ball is passed and everyone moves
around. And also several shot clock violations
(earlier round games had no shot clock).

Andersen strikes gold: BHS D-man helps USA win gold at World Deaf Championships

Despite a 5-2 loss to Canada earlier in the tournament, a goal by the
Lumberjacks defenseman helped lift the U.S. to its first gold medal in the
WDIHC with a 6-3 victory over Canada.

Jack DesRoches says playing in recent hockey tournament was ‘very
emotional’

That is representing your country on the international stage. The
17-year-old son of Julie McNeill and John DesRoches of Days Corner did
just that as a member of Team Canada at the 2017 world deaf hockey
championships in Amherst, N.Y., recently.

Brookfield’s Walters wins silver at deaf hockey championship

Walters, a goaltender for Team Canada, played in the championship game
against the United States. He made 23 saves in a 6-3 loss. The U.S. broke
open a close game with four goals in the second period.

note:

the first time USA and Canadian national deaf hockey teams faced
each other was at the 1975 Deaflympics in Lake Placid, NY

Canada swept all four games, but two games were close
while two other games were blow outs.

As a young man at that time, DeafDigest Sports editor
managed the USA national deaf hockey team. At that time
without the internet and with practically no contacts
with the hockey network, recruiting was extremely
difficult. The American team had two best deaf players
in the world – Deane Sigler and Leonard Williams that
carried the team on their shoulders. It was not
enough to defeat well-balanced Canadian team.

After the Deaflympics, the editor stepped
down from deaf hockey to pursue other deaf athletic
endeavors.

Maryland athlete in newspaper story

Prep Report: Perry’s speed serves more than one need

One of Brady Perry’s favorite moments as a Maryland School for the Deaf
baseball player came when he beat out an infield hit.

What was so special about that?

“I hit it to the first baseman,” Perry said. “And I ended up beating
him [to] first base.”

OK, that is an uncommon occurrence. But the first baseman shouldn’t feel
too bad.

The guy who beat him earlier this season has also been beating sprinters.

Perry plays baseball and runs track and field for the Orioles during the
spring.

 Lady Bisons Girls Varsity Track & Field 5/3/2017

The Lady Bisons were looking to carry on the momentum that they started
with from last week’s win into their meet yesterday against our I-90 ESDAA
rivals, the Wildcats from Rochester School for the Deaf.  The weather
outside yesterday was typical of a Buffalo spring day in that it was cold
and windy.  Not exactly ideal conditions to break any records but because
we deal with it for the majority of the year we weren’t going to allow it
to affect our efforts.  That said, once again our Lady Bisons were up to
the challenge as they motivated each other and with each jump, throw, or
lap, they raised the bar for the next girl to try and beat.  Kioney
Alvira- Juardo was a quadruple 1st place winner and Sabina Bajgai was a
triple 1st place winner.  The rest of the girls contributed with many 2nd
and 3rd place finishes that all added up to a Lady Bisons victory over the
Wildcats 65-33.   Our next meet is this at home.

Ahead of his presser he also explained that he was born hard of hearing.
“It doesn’t affect my tennis. Sometimes, it is even helpful, as I do
not hear everything what is going on around the court,” the Karlsruhe
native laughed. “I only have to tell it to the umpires, who do not speak

MPS track and field (T&F) team went to New York School for the

just north of New York City.  MPS competed against 5 opposite deaf track
and field teams and one hearing track and field team and they were: NYSD-
Fanwood, American School for the Deaf, Pennsylvania School for the Deaf,
Mill Neck School for the Deaf, New Jersey School for the Deaf and El
Academy.

MSP T&F team was not used to running on Fanwood’s oval running track
with gravels, but they positively ran on the gravel track through the
running events. The three reasons that Galloping Ghost T&F athletes had
great experiences at Fanwood meet were to socialize with the five
different deaf track and field teams, feel challenging to race with them
and improve their speed times for ready ESDAA Track and Field
Championship.

And the one man that opened the doors for the physically impaired

Being deaf and mute, Virender was often subjected to mockery among fellow

he’s the sole deaf Indian wrestler who’s capable of fighting
able-bodied wrestlers with utter brilliance.
 
Although Virender won laurels in several International platforms, his goal

Gallaudet baseball

WASHINGTON – Darkness fell on the nation’s capital on a biting overcast
Thursday evening at Hoy Field. Gallaudet University’s nine-inning
non-conference game with nationally ranked Catholic University of America
was halted in the top of the ninth.

The No. 29 Cardinals (16-4) walked away with a 16-3 victory over the Bison
(5-14) in eight innings.

The sluggish game lasted three hours and 50 minutes as the Cardinals
played 24 players and the Bison made seven pitching changes.

Gallaudet had nine hits in the game including a double by senior Blake
Phillips (Dalton, Ga.). Junior Michael Ehlers (Tinley Park, Ill.) led the
Bison offense going 2-for-3 at the plate. GU scored a run in the second,
third and eighth innings.

Catholic jumped out early on the Bison with three runs in the first inning
and a six-run second inning. Outfielder Bailey Lewis (2-for-2) had a grand
slam home run in the top of the second that cleared the left field fences.

GU starting pitcher Robersy Delgado (Tampa, Fla.) took the loss as he
lasted one inning where he allowed eight runs (seven earned) on seven hits
and two walks. Several Bison relief pitchers had scoreless innings against
the high-power Cardinals.

Catholic starting pitcher Joseph Prego (1-0) picked up the win as he threw
five innings where he allowed two runs on five hits, walked three and
struck out three.

newspaper story

Maria Corradetti Dwyer, who is severely hearing impaired, attended
Nether Providence High School because of its programs for students
with hearing problems. She was a goalie for the field hockey team
and also played basketball and softball.

At Marywood University, she set a field hockey team record that still
stands by making 24 saves in a 1-0 victory over the University of

“I have a lot of great memories of my days on the fields and courts
playing for Aston A.A.,” said Dwyer, who teaches students who are blind
or have multiple disabilities and has earned an award from the
Philadelphia Quota Club as Deaf Woman of the Year.

Her hometown high school is located in Wallingford, Pennsylvania.

a deaf schools football rivalry story

AFTER MORE THAN A CENTURY, HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL’S QUIET RIVALRY PLAYS ON

t’s the historic football rivalry between the Tennessee School for the
Deaf and the North Carolina School for the Deaf—the Vikings and the
Bears—two storied high-school programs located about 170 miles apart in
the southern Appalachians.

“It’s one of the reasons that a lot of kids want to come here. Not the
only reason, of course,” said NCSD athletic director Rene’ Skelton. “We
have had students who have come here before and have basically been told
that they weren’t really welcome to be on their public school’s team
because they had no way of communicating and the parents were paranoid
with what to do with them. So they’re thrilled when they get to come here
and participate.”
