Page B-6 - Mason County Journal - Thursday, Dec. 18, 2014 ATHLETE OF THE WEEK By EMILY HANSON emily@masoncounty com Hunter Hohmann knows where hell be next year. The North Mason senior and three-sport athlete has been ac- cepted to Central Washington University, where he plans to study construction management. "rm interested in the con- struction field, but I want to do a bit more with my mind than my hands," Hohmann said. Hohmann said he chose CWU for two reasons: He loves the culture and style of the cam- pus and his parents are alumni. One part of next year that isn't clear yet is Hohmann's ath- letic future. He's played basketball since first grade and baseball since Pee Wee leagues. Hohmann said baseball is his primary sport. "It's something I play all year around," he said. "Basi- cally, baseball is my passion. I'm working on playing it at CWU. I'm for sure going to at- tend CWU and playing baseball would be an extra bonus." He said the possibility of playing college baseball de- pends largely on how he per- forms in the spring. "Coming out of high school and playing there is a big deal because they take a lot of junior college guys," Hohmann said. "If I don't get right onto the team, I still plan to try to walk on." Hohmann said he also en- joys playing basketball because of the fast pace of the sport and how quickly the lead can change. This fall was Hohmann's first with playing football. "I should've come out a lot sooner because I really ended up enjoying it," Hohmann said. "All of my friends play football so I figured, hy not?'" Hohmann said he has a clear vision of what he wants to do be- cause he's done a lot of research. "I always came back to the same conclusion," he added. The 3.75 GPA student said when he's not playing sports or in class he likes to fish and hunt.

Junior hits seven 3-pointers By EMILY HANSON emily@masoncoun com Daulton Geyer provided a spark for the North Mason offense Friday night. The junior boys basketball player hit seven 3-point shots and tallied 27 points in the Bulldogs' 83-64 victory at Crosspoint Academy. "Geyer obviously really got us go- ing with his hot hand from the out- side," head coach Steve Hackett said. "We are pretty hard to defend when we get the offense going with strong drives then hitting open (3-point- ers)." Behind Geyer's offensive perfor- mance, three other Bulldogs reached double-digit scoring figures. Freshman Trey Fisher scored 12 points, while senior Nick Vatour add- ed 11 points. Vatour's points were all scored in the second half. Junior Matt Becker contributed 10 points and handed out 10 assists. "I was really happy with our effort and overall performance," Hackett said. "I was especially proud of Va- tour, who came in when (senior Dan- iel) Burggraaf got into foul trouble in the second half. Vatour gave us a huge emotional spark." Hackett said he was happy to see the Bulldogs bounce back from their Dec. 8 game, when Aberdeen defeated North Mason 73-48. "All credit goes to Aberdeen; they were just flat out better than us," Hackett said. "From the coaching all the way down they just beat us. They play very aggressive trapping defense, which took us out of our of- fensive rhythm and caused a crazy 24 turnovers." North Mason was down nine points at halftime and pulled to within five midway through the third quarter, but Aberdeen scored 20 points in the fourth quarter to secure the victory. Becker led the Bulldogs with 12 points and six assists, while Fisher added 11 points and six rebounds and senior Hunter Hohmann contributed eight points and seven rebounds. The Bulldogs (3-2) play at 7 p.m. tomorrow at North Kitsap.

For the second tour- nament in a row, the North Mason senior took first place at 182 pounds. "Starting off the sea- son winning two tour- naments is a really good way to start," head coach Bill McCarty said. After a bye round Saturday at the 12th annual Larry Brown In- vite at Fife High School, All The Fun? In Our Dining & Ente inment I tings! To Advertise call 426-4412 I, Mason County "11 ournal Grewell faced his first opponent in the second round. As a team, the Bulldogs finished fifth among 16 teams with 117 points. Sunnyside won the tournament with 197 points. Grewell pinned Mer- cer Island's Teague Fra- zier in 1 minute, 7 sec- onds. In the semifinals, he pinned Renton's Le- roy Rowe in 1:58. Wrestling for first place, Grewell faced Port Angeles' Evan Gal- lacci. The week before, Grewell had narrowly defeated Gallacci 1-0 in a dual meet. _ Saturday, Grewell won by decision 13-6 against Gallaci. "Tyler wrestled a re- ally complete match in the finals," McCarty said. "He beat the Port Angeles kid pretty handily." North Mason is scheduled to compete at the HammerHead Tournament tomor- row and Saturday at Kitsap Pavilion in Bremerton. "I'll be interested to see how Grewell does at HammerHead," Mc- Carty said. "That's a tough tournament and will be a really good gauge for where he is this year." Four Bulldogs took third place at the tour- nament. At 106 pounds, Colton Harmon went 2-1, while Jahrett Schiemer, at 132 pounds, went 5-1 dur- ing the tournament. Connor Lundberg, at 220 pounds, went 4-1 for third. Finally, at 285 pounds, Nico Ramirez also went 4-1 for third place. McCarty praised Schiemer for his per- formance at the tourna- ment. "Jahrett just missed winning in the second round by a technical point against him," Mc- Carty said. "As a fresh- man, he's really wres- tling well." "This gave us a chance to look at where we need to be to wrestle against more competi- tive wrestlers," McCar- ty said. North Mason didn't bring wrestlers for the 138- and 195-pound weight classes. McCarty said the team's results were a mixed bag. "Some of the kids stepped up and some of them made silly er- rors that cost them matches," he said. "I think we could've placed a little higher if every- one had been on point."
