Cole Hamai

The KLPW Radio Athlete of the Week is Washington Senior Wrestler Cole Hamai. Cole has set new records for Career wins, pins and team points. He is undefeated this season and has more than 150 wins in three plus years of varsity wrestling at Washington. Current record this season is 29-0. One of Cole's greatest strengths is his quickness and the ability to out maneuver opponents, especially on his feet. Cole plans to wrestle in college but hasn't decided on a school. This season he has wrestled at both 145 and 152 pounds. In the Lindbergh Tournament Hamai captured the top spot in the 145-pound weight class and helped the Blue Jays finish fourth overall. A total of 21 teams from around the St. Louis area competed in the tournament. Cole is also a good student and Coach Josh Ohm says the dedication he applies to wrestling is the same approach he takes in everyday life.

August 9, 2014, will forever be marked in the history books as the date Michael Brown was shot by a Ferguson police officer.

It is the aftermath of that event, however, which history will forever remember. The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
