With our Cadets having multiple opportunities for activities and clubs to break up the monotony of school, there's bound to be some scheduling conflicts. This weekend we could only bring half of the team, but we still made a good show of skill and determination.
When winning, Both Richardson and Morris conquered by quick pins. When losing, it was by a disheartening single point. Both won 4th place.
Hoy Kelley has been out of service, so to speak, due to a broken hand, but has been cleared to wrestle and so badly wanted to be on the mat. Missing a month of full-contact left him feeling a bit out of shape, and he lost some matches that we are sure he could have won otherwise. He looks forward to swift retribution at the upcoming state tournament.
White earned a 3rd place, but the tournament director decided to award medals only to first and second place. Once again, he is denied some bling but is ready to move up the podium.
Hohimer pinned his opponents until the finals when facing his biggest threat ever: three-time state champion and last year's All American (must earn top 8 in the nation) Rick Weaver. Weaver's first few opponents on Saturday barely made it out of the first period when losing by a Tech Fall (greater than 15 point difference), and we could tell Weaver was just casually practicing some moves. Hohimer actually gave this guy a run for his money, so to speak, forcing Weaver to go full speed and force Hohimer to the ground late in the second period.
Our small team showed the other teams what to look forward to when we meet again at the state tournament with a nearly full lineup. Please congratulate the above cadets for their hard work.
Growing up in Alaska, Cpt. Ott learned to appreciate the outdoors and endure severe environments. A childhood electrocution accident inspired him to seek to learn how the universe operates.
A few winning wrestling seasons and some experimentation with gymnastics led him to his first career choice as a stuntman, but using equations learned in an Astrophysics class to create a safe stunt led him to appreciate the application of Physics.
After earning a Physics degree, minor in Chemistry from Sonoma State University he started teaching in inner-city Philadelphia before spending a few years in a therapeutic boarding school for girls.
His experience in the Theater helps him to engage students and maintain short attention spans while many experiences in the wild, hobbies like beekeeping, candle making, and breadmaking, combined with an attitude of creative hands-on learning, provide many opportunities to convert teaching moments into valuable life lessons.
20 years of teaching experience also has provided some fodder for creating lessons that reach beyond the typical curriculum.
