Hohn Excels For JMHS
For the past four years, Magnolia High School senior Zack Hohn has played for John Marshall High School’s hockey team and this season helped it win a divisional championship and a state runner-up position.
Like bowling, hockey is not sanctioned by the WVSSAC. However, regulations allow a student to play for another school, if that school does not have enough players in a non-WVSSAC sport to form a team.
Hohn has lettered each of his four years at JM and was on the first line during his junior and senior season, playing at the right wing or left wing positions. Most recently, he helped the Monarchs win a championship in which 21 teams played and scored the winning goal in a 4-3 victory March 6 against a Pennsylvania high school.
In his last two seasons, Hohn has scored 44 goals and dished out 31 assists in 48 games, winning 31 of them and tying four others.
Hohn thanks MHS Principal Kathi Schmalz for enabling him to participate in hockey at John Marshall. He also thanks his parents, Jeff and Debbie, for being there for him and taking him all over the country to practice and play since he became involved with the sport in 2001. Among the teammates he has had was River High School’s Landon Baker. Other players have been from Bishop Donahue, St. Clairsville and Steubenville Central Catholic.
Hohn will attend West Virginia University to study athletic training. Although he doesn’t plan to play hockey in his freshman year, he does not rule it out later.
