Bisons Featured Twice in The Washington Post

Gallaudet athletics had its day in the sun this past Saturday as the Bison were featured twice on the pages of The Washington Post.

The baseball team landed on the front page (Section A1) for its historic win on Thursday, April 1 to end a Capital Athletic Conference losing streak that dated back to 1997. The Bison defeated Stevenson University 5-3 in the first game of a conference doubleheader at Hoy Field. The victory to those not present was initially taken as an “April Fool’s Day” joke but Post reporters Mark Viera and Zach Berman penned that the win was no joke and a great relief and reason for celebration for the Bison team.
