Oak Harbor’s Witt vs the heavyweights at KSU

Keith Witt won a Division II state wrestling title at 171 pounds for Oak Harbor in 2008.

When he arrived on the Kent State campus a few months later to wrestle for the Golden Flashes, high school suddenly felt like a distant memory. His weight ballooned to 220 pounds his freshman year and he ended up redshirting that season.

“I was really out of shape,” said Witt, now a fifth-year senior. “I was training with the team all year round. I wasn’t in my top form. It was my first year of college and my body wasn’t in the best form it could be. It wasn’t like I gained any good weight. I was dumpy and not in the best shape.”


Oak Harbor finished 3rd at SBC Duals

Over the weekend, the Oak Harbor wrestling team finished third at the Sandusky Bay Conference Dual Meet at Margaretta High School.

Led by seniors Luke Cramer and Alec Bowlick, the Rockets finished third out of eight teams, losing to Perkins and Clyde, the first- and second-place teams.


Thank you to Magruder Hospital and staff

Unfortunately I ran into some physical problems recently, necessitating a  week’s stay in Magruder Hospital.  Fortunately, I can say that I had the absolute best of care.  Starting with the PC EMS, to the Emergency room personnel, on to the Radiology and Cardiology Departments everyone was competent and professional.  The Nursing staff,-especially nurse Robin,  those in Occupational and Physical Therapy explained what they were doing so there were no surprises.  My room was cleaned by a competent housekeeping staff daily.
