new-mexicoNew Mexico 59 Walatowa Charter 58

What an incredible game! In the 4th quarter, with 5 seconds left, Walatowa made a free throw which took them up by one point. Without any time outs left, Bruce Brewer, Jr. dribbled down the court and passed the ball to Jonathan Garcia who then decided to drive to the basket. Sure enough, Walatowa fouled on Garcia right before the buzzer to end the game went off. Garcia went to the free throw line and he looked so confident making both free throws with both hitting nothing but net. Our boys ran to Jonathan and celebrated the fact that we broke the school record for most wins with 19! We want to say hats off to our boys for believing that the game is not over until the clock runs out. Garcia had 23 points and Deven Thompson added 17 points.

Clarification regarding district title and district championship. We have the district title which means we have an automatic bid in the state tournament because of our first place finish in District 1A standings. We do not have the District championship yet but we are the number 1 seed for the district basketball playoffs. We will need to win the district championship game to be considered district champions and bring the DISTRICT CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHY home. The District championship game will be on Saturday, February 24th, 5:00 p.m. at home @ 5:00 p.m. (Contributed by Head Coach Letty Perez)

Holy Names was a fitting opponent for our Bay Counties League Championship matchup. Last season, Holy Names eliminated us in the semi-finals, so payback was sweet for our team. They did not have their starting Point Guard due to an ankle injury in the season finale, but the rest of their team picked up the slack as they played aggressive full-court pressure throughout the game.

We had a small run in each quarter that helped increase our lead against Holy Names as we picked apart their press. In the first half, we started 7-0 in the first, 6-0 in the second quarter. Our defense was excellent for the most part of the quarters except when Holy Names made small 5-0 runs to make it close.

In the third quarter, an Esther Biser basket helped start a 8-2 run. In the fourth quarter we started 6-0 to make it 46-26 for a comfortable 20-point lead.

Holy Names tried their best to come back but the lead never went under 16 largely in thanks to Jade Dawson being on NBA Jam Fire as she scored 13 of her 22 points in the fourth quarter alone including nine consecutive points for the Eagles.

In the end, we made enough plays to clinch the school's second-ever Bay Counties League Championship, the last one was in 2014. Malia Zornoza was named All-Tournament for her consistent all-around play on both sides of the court and Hannah Wetzel, the Tournament MVP for her excellent lock-down defense and running the offense.

In addition to the championship victory, the team has broke the school record for most wins in a season held by the 2014 and 2016 basketball teams.

CSD is now 22-6 on a 12-game winning streak.

With the BCL Championship, we have earned an Automatic Qualifier for the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) North Coast Section (NCS) Division VI Playoffs as known as the CIF NCS Div. 6 Playoffs.

We found out that we are the #3 seed and will play Jewish Community, who we defeated 53-17 on December 5th for our sixth game of the season.

Fremont 63 Oakland Military Institute 18

Bay Counties League Semifinals, #1 CSD against #4 OMI. We played Oakland Military Institute for the third time this season. We defeated OMI on their home court January 31st, 55-23, then won again 62-25 for our Senior Night. We were prepared to take care of business and elevate our game for the playoffs.

After starting the game 4-2, we went on a 16-0 run before an OMI free throw made it 20-3, then we went on another 10-0 run before a free throw ended the run to make it 30-4. It was an excellent start, and we took their spirit out of the game with our passing. Six players had seven points or more which helped our balanced attack

Our defense were playing hard with a purpose to stop Brooklyn North, the league MVP. She was frustrated throughout the game and eventually fouled out with three minutes remaining in the third quarter with only 14 points.

With the win, CSD has entered the BCL championship game against Holy Names. Last year, Holy Names defeated us in the BCL semifinals, so we definitely have payback on our sights. In two games this season against Holy Names, we defeated them at their house 66-64 in the infamous 22-point comeback and our home 68-39.

Overall, CSD had 63 points on 45% shooting, 43 rebounds, 22 assists, seven steals, and four blocks.

CSD is now 21-6 on a 11-game winning streak. We have tied the school record of 21 wins held by Oskar Schugg’s 2014 (21-9) and Deb Ayres’ 2016 (21-7) squads. Senior Guard Hannah Wetzel has made 100 assists in this season as she broke the old record of 77 from 2001. (Contributed by Head Coach Joshua Weinstock)

Tuesday, February 20, 2018

Rhode Island School for the Deaf hosted the annual Eastern Schools for the Deaf Athletic Association (ESDAA) Division 2 tournament last week with eight teams. Horace Mann School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing took part in the tournament as an exhibition team and took the spots of bye games.

St. Mary’s came in the tournament as the #1 seed and dominated the competition to claim their first championship in more than 10 years. St. Mary’s routed Horace Mann in the quarterfinals and Rochester in the semifinals to meet New Jersey in the championship game.

After a close battle to start the game, St. Mary’s pulled away in the second part of the first half outscoring New Jersey 17-8 and 17-5 in the first part of the second half before they let up the gas in the final minutes of the game. St. Mary’s Nick Barrus scored team high 15 points for St. Mary’s with five rebounds, five steals, and four assists to earn the championship game MVP award.

For the third place game, West Virginia defeated Rochester 34-29. The fifth place game was a close and competitive game with the hosts, Rhode Island topping New York State, 59-52. Delaware finished the tournament in 7th place.

St. Mary’s 43 New Jersey 27 - Championship

It has been over 10 years since The Herd was in the championship game so the Bison were anxious and jittery to start. The first eight minutes were close and low scoring for both teams. The Bison then took off on a run and outscored New Jersey 17-8 in the final eight minutes of the first half (Rhode Island state rules play halves and not quarters). Nick Barrus and Kassim Kassim created some key turnovers that led to points. Isa Habeeb (10) and Dalton Planty (11) combined for 21 rebounds and helped control the boards. Ryan Brzezinski came in off the bench and provided a change in the game which led to points for the Bison. New Jersey got into foul trouble to start the second half and the Bisons continued their run and outscored New Jersey 17-5 for eight minutes of play. The Bison went on to win and become Division 2 Champions.

Congratulations to our boys for clinching the district title with Wednesday night’s win over Coronado! The Roadrunners worked so hard and kept fighting to keep the lead for the entire game. The score is lower than usual because the boys were exhausted from playing seven games in two weeks. We are looking forward to tonight’s game with Walatowa Charter. The boys are hungry to break the school record for overall wins. The team is currently tied at 18 for the school record.

marie-philipCommonwealth School 57 Marie Philip 53 (OT) - MBIL D2 Quarterfinals

Without two key starters from our squad along with fatigue from the Eastern Schools for the Deaf Athletic Association (ESDAA) at Western Pennsylvania, we did well in the first half with a 22-19 lead. For the second half, our boys started to show fatigue and were not able to control the lead when we were up by 11 points. Commonwealth made some strange shots that I would never thought would go in. Maybe its some magic spell on them and they came back to close the gap. Several key free-throws on our side didn't convert and that gave Commonwealth a chance at the end.

They scored on a trey and narrowed our lead to one point then fouled our player with 11 seconds left. 8th grader Tyler Furzland made one out of two free-throws. Commonwealth took a timeout and then regrouped to put a shot. A Commonwealth player went one-on-one against Kacey Monahan and he made a nice block but time stopped as the ball went out of bounds. Again, the same player got the ball and turned around, banking a nice shot over Kacey Monahan to tie the game at 45.

In overtime period, Commonwealth had momentum and were almost perfect on their shots from all over. With the loss, we were eliminated from the Mass Bay Independent League Division 2 tournament in the quarterfinals. Kacey Monahan had a monstrous game with 39 points, 14 rebounds, and seven blocks. He has just three points left to reach the 1,000 point milestone. (Contributed by Head Coach John Monahan)
