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.”

The numbers paint a stark picture of contrasts, a skilled team against a team that was resting its good players and making do with its younger ones. Seven of the Rams’ squad members were underclassmen, while four were seniors.

“We’re young, not that that’s our excuse, but our point guards are young,” said Rams head coach Frank Weaver.
