way back passed away.

Part of the obit said:

Gary Wendell Dornon

After graduating, he earned a position teaching Industrial Arts to
visually handicapped children at the Arizona State School for the Deaf and
Blind. He enjoyed teaching blind and visually handicapped kids how to use
shop equipment and how to do foundry work. He firmly believed that they
could do it. He was also the assistant coach for the deaf football team.

Stephanie Mfongwot

Australia

Inside the ring, there are no punches pulled between brother and sister
Stephanie and Jonas Mfongwot. The pair trade crunching blows as they spar
under the watchful eye of veteran trainer Steve Kerr.

Australia provided safe haven and specialist treatment for partial
deafness diagnosed at birth. In Cameroon there was no treatment but
Stephanie now wears hearing aids and the condition is improving.

Danny Davis

Senior

men’s soccer

he is posted on the college soccer web site:

http://www.davidsonwildcats.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=5661

last year he played 14 of his team’s 17 games but
starting zero games!

We will see if he will be promoted to starter or
continue as a sub, “first player” coming off the
bench.

……………………………………….

overlooked in professional baseball

overlooked was Austin Solecitto, deaf relief pitcher,
Rice University, ending his career in 2016

He pitched 12 games with the Sussex County (NJ) team
in the Canadian-American Association in 2016
season. His stats were not impressive -
allowing 6.89 ERA in 15.2 innings (12 games).
This league is independent, not part of the
minor league system.

He is probably no longer playing ball this season.

South Korea’s hearing-impaired NextGenATP player on steep learning curve

college deaf kicker

Unable to hear clearly on the field, this college kicker uses his other senses to succeed

William Holmquist can’t hear his teammates calling out signals. He
can’t hear his coaches shouting instructions from the sidelines, and he
can’t hear what the screaming crowd surrounding him is yelling while
he’s on the football field.

When he punted for Tufts, the play clock – not the snap count –
dictated everything his special teams unit did. Holmquist, who was born
almost deaf, only knew the ball would be snapped when the clock hit a
predetermined time.

Deaflympics culture – comparing India with USA

When Americans come home after participating in the
Deaflympics, the first thing on their minds is to
come home ASAP and get back to their normal daily
living routines.

Apparently it is different with deaf athletes
from India. When they arrive at their home airports,
they expect to be greeted by hearing sports and
even government VIPs, congratulating them on their
Deaflympics performances!

This actually happened. A group of gold-medal winning
athletes from India expected a crowd of VIPs
greeting them. When none showed up, they sulked
and refused to go home, staying in the airport for
hours!

Different nations. Different cultural expectations!

……………………………………………..

Deaflympics – men’s basketball

Lithuania won the men’s basketball gold medal,
and already they are saying they are the best deaf
basketball team in the world.

Are they?

No.

USA, for reasons of its own, did not send its
basketball team to the Deaflympics, despite
originally promising to do so.

They cannot return in future Deaflympics without
paying the heavy fine for withdrawal. The fine
is into few thousands of dollars.

Who is the best deaf team in the world?

DeafDigest Sports editor says that Gallaudet
University is. Could Lithuania national deaf
team defeat Gallaudet University.

We shall never know!

Left Out  by Tim Green

Landon Dorch wants to be like everyone else. But his deafness and the way
he talks have always felt like insurmountable obstacles. But now he
finally sees his chance to fit in. Bigger and taller than any other
seventh grader in his new school, Landon plans to use his size to his
advantage and join the school’s football team. But the same speech
problems and the cochlear implants that help him hear continue to haunt
him.

Just when it looks like Landon will be left out of football for good, an
unlikely friend comes along. But in the end only Landon can fight his way
off the bench and through a crowded field of bullies bent on seeing him
forever left out.

deaf softball

Softball tourney brings deaf community together

COLUMBUS — For Candice Arteaga, the experience is about more than
winning.

Last weekend’s softball tournament in Columbus was a chance to enjoy the
sport she loves with those who face the same challenges she does.

“Having fun and having a good experience is what it’s all about,”
said Arteaga, who got involved with the Midwest Athletic Association of
the Deaf (MAAD) 17 years ago.

The Greenwood resident and Iowa City, Iowa, native has gotten more
involved with the organization over the years.

Last year, she became a board member for the group that includes nine
Midwest states, including Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri,
Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming, and this year she led
the softball side of things.

“We work together to organize the events and pick places to host
softball,” said Arteaga, who is also a board member for the Nebraska
Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (NCDHH).

She wants to get more people from the deaf and hard of hearing community
involved in activities such as softball.

“I just want to get deaf and hard of hearing people together and enjoy
each other from all nine states,” she said. “We communicate by sign
language mostly and we really have a great time coming together each
year.”

MAAD brought its annual softball tournament to Columbus for the first time
last weekend, when four teams featuring players from seven different
states competed.

Midwest Maulers won the championship for the fifth straight year. They
beat Arteaga’s team, Midwest Underdogs, in the championship game.

Arteaga said the players enjoyed their time in Columbus.

“I thought it was a great turnout and everyone really enjoyed the games.
They also got to see what Columbus was all about,” she said.

volleyball at Deaflympics

Norfolk native competing in Deaflympics

Norfolk native Kali Frowick starts competing in Samsun, Turkey, this week
as a part of the U.S. deaf volleyball team at the 2017 Deaflympics.

Opening ceremonies took place Tuesday and the competition runs through
July 30.

Frowick graduated from Norfolk High School in 2011, becoming a part of the
U.S. deaf volleyball team as a freshman at Gallaudet University — the
only higher education institution in the world designed specifically for
the deaf.

Frowick studied physical education and recreation, as well as played
volleyball, at the university based in Washington, D.C. Since graduating
from the university, Frowick works in Fairbult, Minn., where she’s an
assistant teacher and assistant volleyball coach for the Minnesota State
Academy for the Deaf.

In the Deaflympics, the U.S. team was to first compete against Iran on
Wednesday.

In a previous interview with the Daily News, Frowick said her team’s
biggest competition will be Ukraine and Russia, followed by Japan.

If the U.S. volleyball team wins at the games in Samsun, Turkey, it’ll
be the first time the team has taken home the gold since 1993.

The Iran men’s national deaf volleyball team has upset the United States
to achieve its first victory at the 23rd edition of Summer Deaflympics in
Turkey.

On Wednesday evening, the Iranian squad defeated the American team 3-1
(25-19, 18-25, 25-16 and 25-21) at the end of a match played in Turkey’s
northern and major Black Sea port city of Samsun.

EMU volleyball player set to play in Deaflympics

EMU volleyball player Hunter Taylor (Ashland, Va./Patrick Henry) is all
about taking advantage of opportunities.

deaf pitcher in independent minor league

part of a posting

LINCOLN, Neb. — Saltdogs relief pitcher Dimitri Kourtis is returning to
the diamond as a true rookie after sitting out two years for Tommy John
surgery.

However, Kourtis’ biggest obstacle came not two years ago, but ever since
he can remember.

The baseball standout has had hearing loss since birth, which has forced
him to wear hearing aids at all times.

Although the obstacle has posed its challenges, Kourtis has adapted to
life differently and is doing it his own way.

note:
Lincoln Saltdogs is not part of the organized minor league
system. It is a member of the American Association of Independent
Professional Baseball. According to the team’s web site which is
very difficult to navigate, he has pitched 11 games, starting
once, going 18.2 innings, with a 2.41 ERA

What a week this is going to be.  First, we will be hosting NCS Semifinals
Softball Game tomorrow at 5pm as the number one seed!  We hope that you
will come and support our girls.  The admission is $10/$5.  Our baseball
team will be going on the road for the NCS on Wednesday.  I will email you
all a follow up after the games.

We have three track and field athletes going to Meet of Champions on
Friday and Saturday which is the last stop before the states next weekend. 
Good luck to all the participants this week!

Athletes of the Week – RAVEN LYNCH.  This hard working track and field
athlete had a great track season.  She has improved so much and went among
the tops in the league and went to the NCS but didn’t qualify for Meet of
Champions.  However, her commitment and dedication is exciting for the
rest of the team and for herself as we head into next year!

Athletes of the Week – TIVON LEMASTER.  This fine young man had a big week
last week contributing defensively on the baseball team with great catches
in the outfield and then led the high school awards ceremony.  This
student-athlete is emerging into a great leader on and off the field.
