Indy Hawks

The Indy Hawks are saddened to announce that the CAAD has kicked out the Indy Hawks from the 66th annual CAAD to take place next weekend - the first weekend of March. The reasoning behind this is not mentioned, nor explained but officer Neal Kenize states that the CAAD has received a large volume of protests from inside and outside the region as to the Indy Hawks participation and that the players/coaches of the Central Region have voted to have the Indy Hawks banned from participating. The Indy Hawks have not lost a region game in 7 years and have been Central champions since April 2004. The unofficial reason is that the Indy Hawks are simply "too strong" for the CAAD region.

The decision has been made by the CAAD officers, without our knowledge or input and has come as a surprise and a disappointment to the Hawks, who as a team, have been eagerly looking forward to playing in the tournament. The Hawks have not caused a scandal, nor received as much as a technical in CAAD play in the 7 years I have coached the team. Games have often been close within the tournament - as evidenced by WSAD's 7 point loss to the Indy team in 2005,  Kentucky's halftime lead over the Hawks in the CAAD opener in 2008; WSAD nearly upsetting the Hawks in 2009 and Central Zone giving us fits the past two years. 

The past 7 seasons have seen the Hawks undergo at least three major personnel changes in order to stay competitive and among the USADB Elite, which has been heavily revolved around Indiana School for the Deaf alumni, grassroots basketball players and smart coaching. The ensusing result has been appearances in the USADB Championship game 5 times in the past 6 years, with two USADB championships as well as 7 consecutive Central region championships.

The Indy Hawks make no apologies for working hard to be champions on an annual basis and are severely disappointed in the CAAD's decision to exclude the Indy Hawks from the 66th annual tournament.
