Abstract:

An award-winning sportswriter recounts of 1999-2000 season of the women's basketball team of Gallaudet University, offering unforgettable portraits of the players and their individual struggles for acceptance in a hearing world, the team's dedicated coach Kitty Baldridge. The Gallaudet women's basketball team has just defeated the number one ranked team in the country, the College of New Jersey. A reporter, not wanting to be insensitive, delicately broaches the obvious question: How can you play so well despite your hearing impairment? Nanette Virnig, a forward for Gallaudet, puts him at ease. "We're not hearing impaired," she says."We're deaf."
