We hope everyone has had a good summer. It’s been a while since the last update here. Thanks to everybody who came to the Post-Season Awards Banquet and, as we said there, thanks to everybody for making the 2013-2014 season such a great team.
Congratulations to all of the graduating seniors, especially those who had been on the team for multiple seasons, including 4 year team members Aaron Webb, Alec Pleatman and Chase Collier from Moeller and John Hautz from Elder and 3 year team members Shane Thompson from Moeller, DJ Allen from Taft and Elle Bisbee from Madeira. Elle is now the Vice President of the UC Boxing Club along with the President Katie Harrington who is also a former member of the High School Team. Thanks to the graduates for all of your years of hard work and good luck in college this year. Come back and see us any time.
Congratulations also go out to those who fought in the Regional Golden Gloves tournament this past March. Darius Brown (SCPA) continued his winning ways, TKOing his opponent in the 3rd round. Sjors Verhaak (Walnut Hills), in his first sanctioned amateur match, also won by 3rd round TKO, coming back after a tough first round to dominate the next two rounds and finish his opponent in the 3rd. Javier Gresham (SCPA) also competed in his first amateur fight, losing a close decision, but fighting well.
We’re starting to get geared up for the 2014-2015 season. Practices for the 2014-2015 season will start in late October or early November. For the High School Boxing Team, there will be an information session prior to the upcoming season, likely in early October. Check back here for more information about the meeting date and upcoming season. For the UC Boxing Club, there will be an information session on Thursday, Sep 4 at 7:00pm in Room 427 in TUC. There will also be pre-season training and conditioning sessions on campus starting in early September.
We looking forward to another great season in 2014-2015. For any questions, contact one of the coaches or send an email via the Contact page.
