Firestone swimmer Molly Chelovitz is the female 1590 WAKR Student Athlete of the Week for December 8th-15th.

Molly is entering her senior season in the pool for the Falcons, and she looks to expand on what she has accomplished earlier in her high school career. As a freshman, she led the team in points, and was named MVP and team captain in her junior year.

The Falcons swim team is off to another good start, and a big reason for that is the amount of upperclassmen on the roster.

"The team bonding is already there,” says Molly. "We support each other fully, and we’ve really been pushing each other this year, and we’ve got really great things ahead of us."

Molly had a stint on the tennis team before giving that up to focus solely on swimming, which is her passion. A Firestone lifer, she has been swimming in the area since the tender age of four.

"I really like Firestone,” Molly says. “I think it’s a great diverse community, and I think that being a part of the swim team is like it’s own little community inside of Firestone, which is great to be a part of."

When she is not in the pool, Molly can be seen with friends or helping others in her community. She has been involved in Buddy Up Tennis, the Special Olympics

After high school, Molly is still undecided on where to go, but she has narrowed her choices down to Georgetown or the University of Michigan. She has toured the halls of Michigan and likes what she sees, and if accepted, she plans on swimming for the Wolverines and will major in either business or law.

Anna is a standout athlete for the Comets. She just came off a successful season in volleyball, and looks forward to showing off her skills on the softball field in the spring. However, softball is a year-round activity for Anna, and she is a standout pitcher for her teams.

AUDIO Hoban Makes It Three In A Row!

The Archbishop Hoban Knights are now in rarified air as they captured a Division II State title over Cincinnati Winton Woods 42-14 at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton.

The win gives the Knights three titles in a row and their first in Division II. Their first two titles in this dominant run came in Division III.

Coach Tim Tyrrell's team opened up the game in a big way when quarterback Shane Hamm connected with Garrett Houser on a 73-yard pass play to make it 7-0.

Tyrrell said his freshman signal caller played well tonight.

"He was very smart in being able (to check at the line of scrimmage)," Tyrrell said.

"The offensive line did a great job in protection and the receivers made great plays on the ball."

 

Hoban also capitalized early on mistakes by the Warriors, opening up the first quarter scoring off a blocked punt to make it a 14-0 game.

They didn't take their foot off the gas as Houser, a Navy commit, got his 2nd TD of the ballgame to open the second quarter to put Hoban up 21-0.

A long run by Winton Woods' Miyan Williams led to a touchdown pass to Cornell Beachem from signal caller Kenny Mayberry to cut the lead to 21-7 with 9:19 left to play in the first half.

The Knights answered quickly with a long pass to Nate Bauer to set up a 1-touchdown plunge by junior Tyris Dickerson to make it 28-7.

Raquean Prince of Winton Woods then answered for the Warriors returning the subsequent kickoff 92 yards for a touchdown to cut the lead half 28-14.

Hoban then connected on a 38-yard scoring strike to Mason Tipton, who appeared to step out of bounds, but the TD stood.

Freshman QB Shane Hamm then hit end zone again with another touchdown pass to Tipton to make it a 42-14 halftime lead after a failed fake punt attempt by Winton Woods.

It was Hamm's fourth touchdown toss of the night.

Both teams had a scoreless third quarter, but Hoban kept up the defensive pressure, which was just what Coach Tyrrell wanted.

When asked which was the most memorable aspect of this three year run by the Knights, Tyrrell pointed to the seniors who led on the field, in the weight room, and with the underclassmen.

He is a three-sport athlete, competing in bowling, baseball, and football. In addition to those accomplishments, he also is on the honor roll and has a 3.8 GPA.

The 2018 gubernatorial race in the state of Ohio is beginning to shed some extra weight. Secretary of State Jon Husted, who threw his hat in the race, has decided to join forces with Mike DeWine in the attorney general’s quest for governor.

Dr. John Green, director of the Bliss Institute at the University of Akron, discussed the ticket of DeWine and Husted. Green believes this “would be a very attractive pair of candidates” in the race, which also features fellow Republicans in Mary Taylor and Jim Renacci. Green went back a quarter-century when a similar instance happened with DeWine joining George Voinovich’s path to Columbus, which was a success.

Green also talked about the other Republicans and their chances at the office. He believes Renacci, an ardent backer of President Trump, needs to get his name out there in larger border cities like Cleveland, Toledo, and Cincinnati.

Ashley is beginning her senior season as a star swimmer for the Hornets, though her time in the pool will be pushed back. An overuse injury to her right arm will keep her out of the water for a bit, but she plans to be back to her old form.

That form was ever present as an underclassman. Ashley is a two-time Suburban League MVP, first-team All-Gazette, four-time All-Ohio, USA Swimming Scholastic All-American, among other accolades.

"I’ve been swimming competitively since eight grade,” says Ashley, evidently a quick learner, though she took swim lessons many years before that. As for the her fellow Hornets, she says “I’ve been really fortunate to have great coaches and teammates."

When she’s not in the pool, Ashley is very active at Highland High School. She is a member of the National Honor Society, an office aid, and a mentor to sixth graders. She also volunteers at her church and helps those with special needs.

After high school, Ashley will attend the University of Cincinnati, with physical therapy being her preferred major. She plans on swimming for the Bearcats.

Rogers says she's excited for the season to start and make things happen on the hardwood.

“We're hoping to make it farther than the city, we want to go to state,” she says. “We're advancing (on the court) because we have a young team this year.”

The Lady Griffins were City Series Champions last season and lost to Marlington in the second round two years in a row.

Javann is an honors student at Buchtel, and she knows the balance between school and sports is necessary. Last year in addition to her work in the classroom being on both the honor roll and merit roll, she was 2nd team All-City last season.

She is a two-sport athlete playing both basketball and softball, but basketball is truly a family affair, as her older siblings played and her mother coached as well.

Off the court, Javann shares her love of the game coaching as a volunteer basketball coach for Ladies First in Akron, for whom she used to play in her younger days.

She says her teammates now with the Lady Griffs have been known to share a good practical joke or two during their time on the court.

“There's times we're serious, there's times we play, but we know to get back serious and work hard,” she explained.

We here at 1590 WAKR wish Javann the best in all of her future endeavors.

Bret is a star on the wrestling mats for the Panthers, and he will be moving up from the 138 weight class to 145 for his senior season.

From a young age, Bret has been involved in wrestling, having done so for twelve years.

"My dad got me into [wrestling], and I stuck with it ever since,” he says. "It [takes] a lot of mental toughness.”

In his junior year, Bret finished seventh in the state in Division II and was named team MVP for the Panthers

Though he is putting the finishing touches on his senior year at Norton, Bret spends very little time at the high school. He isn’t playing hooky, mind you; Bret spends most of his school days taking college prep classes at Stark State College.

When he is not wrestling, Bret can be seen in the grass somewhere, either on a baseball field or a golf course. In his free time, he enjoys unwinding on his Xbox.

After graduation, Bret is looking to further his education at either Akron or Kent State. The field of medicine runs in the Baker family, and Bret seems to have caught the medical bug, as he looks to major in NEOMED.

“I may wrestle,” he says at the next level. “But I’m definitely focusing on academics."
