Oak Harbor holds off Port Clinton, 58-47

For much of the first quarter, Port Clinton outplayed Oak Harbor and held a 13-8 lead with about a minute remaining but things changed.

A.J. Cecil connected on a layup and Sam Laderach hit a three-pointer at the buzzer to tie it at 13, swinging the momentum in the Rockets’ favor as they went on a 12-0 run and took control of the contest before defeating the Redskins, 58-47.

Greg Haar’s three-pointer with 6:16 left in the second quarter gave Oak Harbor the lead for good at 16-13 and the Rockets never looked back.


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.
