If the Colonels took full advantage of the Rams’ slim stable of players, then the scoreline could have been even greater. The Rams buckled down on defense and took to the flanks for their advances, quickly realizing that the Colonels’ defense was at its weakest on the sides.

“What did we dress, 19 people today? We don’t really have the bodies to play a full four quarters. But the guys we had played hard, and gave everything they got,” said Rams head coach Seth Kenton.

Rockville’s Hoppman eyes 100th career victory

  • Published in Sports

Rockville’s Cameron Hoppman can earn his 100th career victory against visiting Northwest on Thursday. 

A senior who finished third at the county tournament and second at regionals, Hoppman is 21-1 on the year with 15 pins, his lone setback coming by disqualification in a bout he was winning by seven points. 

Hoppman was a regional runner-up to graduated county champion Gibbs Tinne of Paint Branch, who finished with a record of 43-1 and third at last year’s Class 4A-3A state tournament. Hoppman won one of two bouts at states, with his losses being against Tinne and state champion A.J. Strott of Reservoir High in Howard County.

“My main focus is getting points for our team, but as far as 100 wins, that would be a great accomplishment,” said Hoppman. “The Northwest match is really important. It will tell us how far we’ve come and where we’re at compared to the elite programs in the area.”
