ST. MARY’S CITY, Md. – Gallaudet University’s women’s basketball lead

Gallaudet (5-4) took a 33-23 lead in to halftime and extended the margin
to 42-28 at the 6:49 mark in the third quarter.

St. Mary’s (2-6) went on a quick 17-0 run, in just under five minutes, to
take a 45-42 lead as the Seahawks outscored the Bison 29-13 in the
decisive third quarter.

The Seahawks took a 52-46 lead into the final 10 minutes of regulation. GU
took its last lead on a made free throw by senior guard/forward Hannah
Neild (Litchfield, N.H.) at the 7:43 mark as the Bison led 53-52.

The game remained close down the stretch but Gallaudet missed four field
goals in the final minute.

Neild finished with a season-high 35 points as she made 11 of 24 shots and
drained five 3-pointers. She completed the double-double with 13 rebounds
(10 defensive), four assists, four steals and one block.

Sealts helps GU win seven events, set three school records, on first day
of Cedar Crest Invitational

ALLENTOWN, Pa. – Sophomore Ben Sealts (Ottawa, Ohio) set three Gallaudet
University records here Saturday on the first day of the Cedar Crest
College Falcon Invitational. Sealts and his teammates helped the Bison
take a strong lead as GU sits in first place with 319 team points through
eight events.

Sealts had a hand in Gallaudet’s seven first-place finishes on the day. He
took first in five individual events and was part of two first-place relay
teams.

Sealts set two school records in one event as he won the 100-yard
breaststroke with a time of 1:03.47. The final time is nearly a second
faster from his previous best time of 1:04.46 set on Jan. 20, 2018. On the
first leg of the event, he completed the 50-yard breaststroke in 30.03
seconds to erase Chris Martinez’s time of 31.13 set on Oct. 14, 2017.

Minutes later, Sealts dove back in and won the 50-yard butterfly with a
new school mark of 25.37 seconds. That time edges the old time of 25.48
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.

Indiana girls’ basketball

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

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.

dedication to a past athlete

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to
Francis Thompson, past Wisconsin School for
the Deaf and deaf basketball clubs athlete.

the obit said:
He played basketball and football during his tenure at the Wisconsin
School for the Deaf and was a force to be reckoned with. In basketball, he
played as an intimidating defensive center who was many times unstoppable
due to his clever moves and plays despite his 6-foot stature. In the
1950-1951 season, he broke the school record by scoring 354 points. His
showmanship on the court was glorified and earned him induction into the
Wisconsin School for the Deaf Hall of Fame. In addition, Francis was a
versatile football player, playing both offense and defense, terrorizing
the opposing teams. Francis played basketball for 10 seasons from
1953-1962 with the Milwaukee Silent Club, helping the team win two
championships at the AAAD in 1955 and 1956. He went on to coach basketball
for both the Milwaukee and Madison Associations of the Deaf. He was well
loved and respected by everyone he touched.

Saturday afternoon and outscored Penn St.-Berks 51-36 in the second half
en route to a 81-78 victory in a North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC)
women’s basketball game on Padden Court in the Field House.

Gallaudet (3-3, 1-1 NEAC) was paced by its starters as senior
guard/forward Hannah Neild (Litchfield, N.H.) scored 15 of her game-high
26 points in the second half. She added a team-high nine rebounds, three
steals, two assists and one block in the win.

Valencia tallies 1,000th career point as Bison survive 2OT thriller

WASHINGTON – The men’s basketball game here Saturday evening between
Gallaudet University and Penn St.-Berks had a little bit of everything in
this North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) tilt in the Field House on
Padden Court before a crowd of 424. The game featured heartbreak,
thrilling moments, a team’s first win of the 2018-19 season and personal
career milestone. Of course a game like that couldn’t be jam-packed into
40 minutes so this conference game went an extra 10 minutes as Gallaudet
won 104-100 in double overtime.

Junior guard Noah Valencia (Riverside, Calif.) entered the contest in
search of his 1,000th career point as he was 20 points shy. He had a slow
start in the first half, where he scored three points and was hampered
with two early personal fouls. Valencia heated up in the second half with
16 points as he made 6 of 11 shots from the field, including two
3-pointers. Luckily, the need for overtime allowed Valencia to notch his
1,000th career point with a free throw made at the 2:34 mark in the first
overtime period before the home crowd. Play was stopped for a brief moment
as Valencia was recognized for becoming the 27th Gallaudet men’s
basketball player to record 1,000 career points

It was KSD second game of the season. Both teams got off to bad starts

Arkansas went on a short run giving them a 17-10 lead by halftime. Lack of
rebounding and passing hurt the team. The team committed 42 turnovers
which prevented their chance to catch up. Very inexperienced team.

Bison fall short in NEAC opener

ABINGTON, Pa. – Gallaudet University had a chance to tie the game in the
waning seconds but a missed free throw left the Bison a point short on the
road at Penn St.-Abington in the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC)
men’s basketball opener for both teams. Time ran out on the Bison comeback
as they fell 89-86 to the Nittany Lions.

Florida boys’ basketball

Hello Dragon fans!  Our young team was rudely welcomed into the 2018-19
season by Halifax Academy of Daytona Beach.  We lost our season opener on
Tuesday 11/27, 9-49.  We came out of that game knowing that we had a long
way to go.

Tonight, we faced Taylor HS (Pierson, FL).  Even though we didn’t win, we
played with much better effort and intensity.  The final score was 48-55.
I’m proud of the boys not quitting and pouring in 29 points in the 4th
quarter.  We made them put their
starters back in and continued to chip away at their lead.  I’m sure their
coach couldn’t have been happier when the clock struck 0:00.

We still have work to do, and we’ll do our best to get to where we need to
be.

Season record: 0-2

On Tuesday, November 27 at 7:00 PM, Kansas School for the Deaf played
their
first basketball game of the season.  They played against Christ
Preparatory, who had already played four games in the Great Plains
Athletics Conference (GPAC).  It was very tough for the KSD Boys’
Basketball Team as they had not practiced for a week due to the
Thanksgiving break and snow day. Christ Prep practiced during the
Thanksgiving break. KSD lost to Christ Prep with a score of 38 to 58.
Christ Prep played very well due to the fact that they had already played
five games this season. Their stats looked great!  Coach Ward was proud of
his KSD boys who worked extremely hard. Presently, KSD has 0 wins and 1
loss.

KSD’s second GPAC game will be against Alta Vista, on Thursday November
29, at KSD after the KSD girls’ basketball game at 4:30 PM. Our Goal is
to
win the game Thursday!  Our roster is: Angel Lira (8Th grade), Logan Green

Class 1A/2A players to watch

Deven Thompson, senior, N.M. School for the Deaf

It’s perhaps the understatement of the preseason to say he’s at or
near the top of the Class 1A talent pool. At 6-10, he can dominate on
sheer size and girth alone. At his height he can practically sleepwalk his
way to a double-double, but he’ll need to be more than that if NMSD is
to be taken seriously after its surprising district title run a year ago.
Fitness is a key for Thompson. That, and his desire to push himself beyond
his comfort zone. As big as he is, opponents will try to wear him down by
keeping things up tempo and forcing him to run.

DeafDigest Sports editor was looking through old, old

amnazed about one thing – many pictures of intramural
football – it was tackle football, not touch football
or even flag football!

…………………………………………..

remembering Steve Blehm

part of newspaper story

TOUGH AND HUMBLE

Thanks to the internet, Kolpack was able to track down his first subject
Steve Blehm. After an internet search he found an obituary for Blehm’s
wife and from there he set out to find her survivors. “I knew Steve
Blehm was a great player in the early 70s. I looked him up and I knew he
averaged 47 points a game, which is still a record. I knew he’s deaf and
I knew he played for the North Dakota School for the Deaf, so that’s how
I started that chapter.” Kolpack said.

He eventually made contact with one of Blehm’s three daughters, Sarah,
and in time he found himself face to face with Blehm at his home in
Staunton, Virginia. Sarah aided with communication during the visit.

“The daughters never knew about Steve and his records. He was in Sports
Illustrated and they didn’t know about it until they were teenagers. I
go why? He says humble, be humble–and I thought–that’s so North
Dakota. He didn’t want to talk about it. He didn’t want to brag. His
daughters only found out because a sports writer there found out about it
and wrote a story on him.”

note:
Steve enrolled at Minot State University, intending to play
basketball there – but after a semester he transferred to
Gallaudet and played basketball. He was always a starter and
was one of the team’s better players, his scoring average
always in double digits.

An acquaintance told DeafDigest Sports editor today that
Steve was humble and didn’t like to talk about his
basketball exploits at North Dakota School for the Deaf.

random deafsports thoughts

in the past, DeafDigest Sports editor used to maintain
statistics in football and basketball, but not any more.

Why?

A perfect example was Sports Illustrated’s Faces in the
Crowd. It featured a top deaf running back during the
nineties. It mentioned his career rushing stats.
The Faces in the Crowd rushing stats and DeafDigest
Sports stats (given by his football coach annually) were
off by about 50 career yards!

So much for stats!

thinking about Texas football. Over the years Texas has
produced outstanding running backs.

Lee Montez led his 1947 team to a 10-0 record; he got an
offer to play junior college football. Don’t know what
happened.

Sammy Oates led his 1957 team to an outstanding season.
He played for Hardin-Simmons University, at that time,
a NCAA-I program. He was drafted to play for Houston
Oilers in the old American Football League, before
it merged with NFL. He was one of the final cuts.

Brandon Reese broke all rushing records with his
late nineties teams.

Preston Garrett has duplicated Reese’s rushing
records this season with the 8-4 team.

There have been others, too numerous to mention!

Football score

Bay Area Christian 34
Texas              14

2nd round of state TAPPS playoffs

Deaf Football season has ended; now on to basketball for
all deaf schools

………………………………………….

Texas football

Season has ended. They lost 34-14 in the second round
of state TAPPS (Texas Association of Private and Parochial
Schools) playoffs.

It was 28-14 at half time.

Bay Area Christian fumbled on the 7 yard line and
also had another possession on 5 yard line but failed
on downs.  The score would have been higher if not for
these two blown red zone opportunities.

Was it an upset?

Here is the newspaper story, prior to the game:
(as abbreviated)

Football playoffs: Bay Area Christian faces tall order

The Broncos, winners of eight straight after an 0-3 start, battle talented
Texas School for the Deaf at 5 p.m., at Sealy High School

Texas School for the Deaf also brings an 8-3 record into the contest, and
has won four straight, including last week’s 59-21 victory over
Northland Christian.

Earlier this season, Bay Area Christian won at Northland Christian, 62-34.

If the scores from those two common opponents are any barometer, then
Saturday’s game between the Rangers and Broncos should be a tightly
contested one.

“They’re a heavy run team,” Rainey said of Texas School For The
Deaf. “They get in the spread formation, but they just pound it at you.

“Defensively, (the Rangers) are physical and really aggressive,” he
said. “They’re a very sound team. Offensively, they’ll line up with
two tight ends, and they’ll lull you to sleep running the ball, but
they’re more than capable of passing.

“They run a lot of double-wing sets and do a lot of misdirection with
pulling linemen. They’re really similar to us in a lot of ways.”

from today’s maxpreps report:
Bay Area Christian earned some postseason bragging rights after a
successful outing on Saturday. They strolled past Texas School for the
Deaf with points to spare, taking the contest 34-14. The team accrued the
bulk of their points in the first half (28) and coasted on those for the
victory.

That final score didn’t come about without some excitement. Bay Area
Christian’s senior Christian Mcdonough penetrated the defense for a
65-yard TD rush in the fourth quarter.

The win was the ninth in a row for Bay Area Christian and raised their
record to 9-3. The loss dropped Texas School for the Deaf’s record to 8-4.

Bloomfield Deaf Quarterback Coach Trains Hundreds of Hearing Players

part of newspaper story

As far as Craig Bryden knows, he’s the only deaf private quarterback
coach in the country. He’s also never played football.

“I always wanted to play football, but my parents wouldn’t let me
because I was deaf,” Bryden said at a Saturday coaching session at
Bloomfield High School.

Now, four years later, Bryden has trained more than 250 players across
Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New York

“The last two, three years I’ve sent some of my students to Division I
colleges,” said Bryden. “I know that I’m doing something right.”

note:
Bryden was a college golfer. He then worked and coached soccer
at Governor Baxter School for the Deaf (Maine) and at American
School for the Deaf before moving on.

Very complicated and confusing?

See this explanation -

The University of the District of Columbia Athletics Hall of Fame was
established to pay tribute and give recognition to former
student-athletes, coaches, and administrators who have significantly
contributed to the athletic success and history of the institution.
Established during the celebration of the University’s 160th Anniversary,
the Athletics Hall of Fame honors outstanding individuals and celebrates
the university’s rich history of intercollegiate athletic competition
which began in the early 1900′s when students attending Miner Teacher’s
College competed in basketball and tennis. The Hall of Fame inductees have
significantly contributed to the athletic success and history of the
Myrtilla Miner School for Colored Girls, Washington Normal School, Wilson
Normal School, Miner Normal School, Wilson Teachers College, Miner
Teachers College, District of Columbia Teachers College, Federal City
College, Washington Technical Institute, and the University of the
District of Columbia  over the last 160 years.

it simply refers to University of the District of Columbia,
currently a NCAA-II program but in the past, these different
(but same) schools played against Gallaudet in all sports,
including football.

In football, these “same” teams played against Gallaudet
20 times; Gallaudet won 10 times; they won 10 times.

Gallaudet football continues. University of DC/DC Teachers College/
Wilson Teachers College/Federal City College (thess same schools
under different names) have dropped football.

Gallaudet men’s basketball

Second-half run sparks Gallaudet on the road against Hampden-Sydney

HAMPDEN-SYDNEY, Va. – The comeback was nearly complete for Gallaudet
University here Wednesday night as the Bison men’s basketball team fought
back from down 27 points against Hampden-Sydney College but in the end,
time ran out on GU’s bid, as the host Tigers won 73-63.

Gallaudet (0-5) used a 25-4 run, that spanned 12 minutes, in the second
half to cut the Tigers’ lead from 51-24 to just six points, 55-49, in the
Fleet Gymnasium.

Junior guard Noah Valencia (Riverside, Calif.) drained his third and final
3-pointer at the 3:43 mark to pull the Bison even closer, 59-55.

Junior center Steve Valencia-Biskupiak (Riverside, Calif.) led the Bison
in scoring with 16 points while Valencia scored 10 of his 15 points in the
second half to go with five rebounds, six assists and three steals.
Freshman guard Corey Smith (Miami, Fla.) recorded his first double-double
with 14 points and 11 rebounds. Senior center Jamal Garner (Jacksonville,
Ill.) chipped in eight points and four rebounds before he fouled out.

Still snapping

Brad Moushegian, the hearing-impaired long snapper for Salem High School
who was featured in The Roanoke Times last December, has made his college
debut on the football team at Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C.

Gallaudet bills itself as one of the world’s premier institutions for
the deaf and hard of hearing, and Moushegian, who had been wearing
cochlear implants since he was 3, was required to learn sign language
before he could play.

“He is still considered a beginner but has come a long way with his
signing abilities,” said Moushegian’s father, Jeff, who is the first
in a long line of snappers in the family.

Brad Moushegian is listed as a 5-foot-10, 155-pound wide receiver on the
Gallaudet website, which indicates he played in one game for the Bison
(3-5).

Brad was held out of the first five games of the season with a elevated
heart rate that a sports cardiologist was monitoring. He subsequently
practiced as both a long snapper and a wide receiver.

“Like most of the freshmen, he did not get in the games but for a few
plays this year,” his dad said. “He is looking forward to offseason
workouts and getting prepared for his sophomore year.”

One of the kickers Moushegian might be snapping to in coming years is
Jacob Guertler, a junior from Robert E. Lee High School in Staunton, which
becomes Staunton High School next summer.

There are four players from Virginia on the Gallaudet roster. The other
two are from the Tidewater region.

Is there such a thing as analytics in Deaf Softball?

Baltimore Orioles hired past NASA engineer Sig Mejdal
for his expertise with baseball analytics.

As a young man DeafDigest Sports editor played
competitive deaf softball – against deaf teams in
invitational and regional tournaments and against
hearing teams in league play.

The coach was a Gallaudet graduate with a degree
in Math and worked as a federal government computer
programmer.

He was deep into analytics years before we all
have heard of that word.

On the team was a player whose mechanics were all
wrong. His swing was flawed. Yet he had one of the
highest batting averages on the team. He just made
contact with the ball, despite his terrible swing,
and it boosted higher his batting average.

The coach defended criticism from the team,
saying the player’s batting average was higher
than all of them!

Analytics or fundamental play? Your choice!

Sealts picks up third NEAC Men’s Swimming & Diving Student-Athlete of the

GANSEVOORT, N.Y. – The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) announced
its conference student-athlete of the week awards for the week of Nov. 20
and Gallaudet University sophomore Ben Sealts (Ottawa, Ohio) was selected
as the NEAC Men’s Swimming & Diving Student-Athlete of the Week for the

Of the five events won by Gallaudet, Sealts took first in three events in
a non-conference loss to Marymount University last Friday night. The
Bison’s sophomore swimmer swam to a first-place finish in the 1,000-yard
freestyle with a time of 10:47.69. Sealts also won the 100-yard backstroke
and the 200-yard individual medley with times of 56.26 and 2:06.89,
respectively.

Mississippi football

part of newspaper story

Students at the Mississippi School for the Deaf filed into an auditorium
on the first Wednesday of November, unsure why an announcement had been
made over the televisions throughout the school.

A week had passed since the football team ended its regular season with a
34-0 drubbing of the Louisiana School for the Deaf to improve its record
to 5-1. The team had won national championships before. Some of the
players thought, “Maybe?”

Once everyone was in the auditorium, the 16 football players — some
deaf, others hard of hearing, three blind — were asked to stand up.
Athletic director Cheryl Kaler presented them with a yellow paper banner
with purple letters on it, announcing DeafDigest had named the football
team national champions for the second consecutive year and for the 10th
time overall.

Gary Klingensmith coached Gallaudet football for
three seasons in the sixties.

What was the craziest play he created in one game?

His offensive tackle had the best arm on the team;
he was a high school quarterback but his size was
needed on the Gallaudet offensive line.

Just for one play, he pulled out of his tackle
position at the snap, stepped into the backfield,
took the pitchout from the quarterback and threw
a long pass (behind the scrimmage line). It was
a legal pass.

The long pass didn’t work. Klingensmith never tried
that play again!

We played at the Brentwood Bestpack Invitational tournament this past
weekend and our girls played well considering most of them only had four
practices after volleyball season ended.  We opened against Brentwood and
had a nail-biter, winning in overtime 38-36.  (Brentwood is the same team
we lost to in the Final Four last year)  The second game we faced a solid
Rosehill Christian (5-1) team and beat them 50-20.  In the championship
game, we played against Boerne Geneva (5-1) and won 41-9.  Our defense was
a highlight of the tournament, getting plenty of recognition from other
coaches.

Brentwood Bestpack Invitational
TSD d. Brentwood, 38-36 OT
TSD d. Rosehill, 50-20
TSD d. Geneva, 41-9

Our record is 4-0 as we start Thanksgiving break and will resume play with
a game against Regents on November 29th.

Bison tangle with Cardinals in Battle of D.C. & Maryland consolation game

WASHINGTON – The second day of the Battle of D.C. & Maryland Tournament

and an all-tournament team announced.

Gallaudet University stumbled against The Catholic University of America
in the men’s basketball consolation game as the Bison (0-4) lost, 96-69,
to the Cardinals (1-2). GU senior forward Jamal Garner (Jacksonville,
Ill.) led the team in rebounds (seven) and scored six points as he was
selected to the all-tournament team.

The Bison had four scorers reach double figures as each player drained two
3-pointers. Junior guard Noah Valencia (Riverside, Calif.) led the way
with 14 points followed by fellow junior guard Trace Martin (Shingle
Springs, Calif.) with 13 and freshmen guards Corey Smith (Miami, Fla.) and
Dylan Sicoli (Austin, Texas) netted 10 points each.

In the good old days of American Athletic Association
Basketball (AAAD) tournaments, competing coaches
would look for promising players that just graduated
from deaf schools. The Washington, DC coach thought
he found such a promising player (that didn’t go to
Gallaudet).

The coach helped him find a job and an apartment
in the Washington, DC area in exchange for playing
for his club team.

On the first day of club basketball practice, everyone
realized the new player was not as good as he was
being “advertised” – and was stuck (at least for one
year) the promised job and the promised apartment!

Chasing Fools’ Gold? Yes!
