AW finished 11th in the OHSAA State Championships on the Ohio State University's Scarlett Course. Senior Kevin Hoyle particpated for the Generals.

Incoming Freshmen Cal Johnson and Chad Bialecki are teammates on the Generals' Freshmen football team. Cal scored a touchdown on a 60 pass reception and run as the Freshman beat Maumee 24 to 21 on Thursday September 24th. Johnson made his first varsity game appearance in AW's final game of the year against Springfield October 30th. He played wide receiver late in the 4th quarter.

Finally there is the 6' 2" 200 lb+ Senior Left Wing Andrew Price a first year member of the Cross Country team. Now a lot of former Generals football lineman don't run 5,000 meters (3.13) miles) competitively. Andrew is competing hard and his times are improving, but most importantly, he has lost a few pounds and is down just under the 200 lb mark.

Koralewski and Seipel Voted to Play in the 2009 Senior All Star Game
The 2009 senior all-star game will be held at Nationwide arena as part of the 2009 final four weekend. The game will be held at 10:00 AM on Saturday March 14th. The Generals Goal Tender Dan Koralewski and Forward Zak Seipel were chosen to play in the game by the state's High School Hockey Coaches.

Koralewski had a record year in the net for the Generals. Appearing in 25 games he set team records for wins, save percentage and goals allowed per game. He was acknowledged as one of the top goal tenders in the state. In the NHC Blue Division despite winning 5 of 6 games he played and a goals per game allowed average of 1.56, he was ignored by the other coaches and was not elected to the All Division first or second team. His election by the state's coaches reflects his true value to his team.

Zak Seipel broke the career record for goals scored (123) and season's records for goals (53) and points scored (106) in his truely remarkable 4 years as a General. He was the NHC Blue Division Player of the Year his last three seasons and Second Team All League his freshman year. There has never been a more dominating player in the NHC Blue Division. Zak's older brother Nick played on the first AW hockey team.

Dan and Zak were among 15 NHC players to be selected and were the only two from the Blue Division.

Seven Generals Hockey Players have experienced success on the AW Fall Sports Teams. Five are members of the Soccer Teams, a Football player and a member of the Golf Team.

Senior Zach Tansel is described by Varsity Soccer Coach Chip Smith as "a key contributor" as a Defensive Back for the Generals who are in the Top 10 of the Division 1 State Rankings. Zach was a First Team All Blue Division Defenseman in 2007-08 for the Hockey Generals. Junior Robert Witte, who is recovering from an ankle injury, is a key reserve for the Varsity Soccer Team. He expects to return to action in the second round of the state tournament. Sophomore Zach Ulrich played Forward on Junior Varsity until being moved up to the Varsity. Zach scored a goal for the Generals in the State First Round Game against Waite. Sophomore Michael Witte was another member of the Junior Varsity Soccer Team as a Outside Middle Forward. Michael was one of the JV's leading scorers this season. Finally Sophomore Chloe Spencer, the Second Team All NHC Blue Division Goal Tender, played Goalie (What else!) for the Generals Girls Junior Varsity Soccer Team. The team went 8-2-2 during the 2008 season and Chloe was in the net for every game.

Sophomore Center/Wing John Vollmar was a member of the Generals Football Squad. John, a defensive lineman, dressed for the Varsity games and played in two games. He was a regular in the middle of the JV's defensive line and returned an interception for a touchdown. We understand that John has "trimmed down" to 185 pounds and is in great condition.

Captains' practices continue on Mondays and Wednesdays and we have seen several new faces for the upcoming season. Goaltender and 2-time Letterman Senior Dan Koralewsi returns after backstopping the National Tournament participants Toledo Cherokee (U-16) last season. His teammate last season, and a 3 year Jr. General, Sophomore Forward Zach Ulrich begins his first AW season. He is currently playing on the Generals' Soccer Team. Senior F/D Adam Ankenbrandt who has played 2 years as a Jr. General and also previously spent time as Varsity and Jr. Varsity player for the Generals rejoins the 2008-09 team.

Sophomore and 3 year Jr. General Forward Chris Watkins joins the team after playing for the Monroe Jr. Ice Hawks last season. Sophomore and 2 Year Jr. General Trevor Pieh starts with the team after playing basketball last winter. Freshman Forward Aaron Podbielniak, a former Maple Leaf and Cherokee travel team member joins former Maple Leaf Travel Team player Matt Trautlein who can play Forward, Defense and can also play Goalie. Finally, Freshman and 3 year Jr. General F/D Michael Kaptur who has had Travel experiences for the Maple Leafs and BG Youth Hockey should add plenty of spark to the Generals.

This group will be added to at least 21 returning players from last year's Varsity and JV Teams. Additionally, the players, who will play this season, have accumulated over 80 years of Jr. Generals playing experience. There is is expected that at least 13 Jr. Generals 8th graders will be ready to play for AW next season.
