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.

"No Justice, No Peace"

Certainly, there was no peace on the streets of Ferguson on the night the grand jury announced it would not indict police officer Darren Wilson for the shooting of Michael Brown.

The images of a city burning were disturbing, saddening and sickening. Every business torched leaves in its wake families who have lost their source of income, and a community that will find it that much harder to rebuild.
