For more than 30 years, Don Hobbs has seen all sides of the Defense Department schools athletics programs. His journey will end July 1 when he retires as the DODEA-Pacific athletics coordinator.
The Dragons scored 26 unanswered points to hold off Kinser, while the Bulldogs came back from 14 down against Hansen.
The senior pitcher and shortstop batted .472 with seven home runs, 26 RBIs and 11 stolen bases in 66 at bats and was 5-0 with a 1.37 ERA and three saves on the mound.
This season ended much the same way for Yokota softball as it did last year; a successful few months of more wins than losses that resulted in raising the ultimate prize of the Far East Division II Tournament championship banner.

Boys soccer AOY
A soccer team’s best striker can usually count on being defended more tightly than other players on his team. But for two seasons, Miles Mahlock was subject to the sort of blanket coverage that few scorers in the Pacific rarely see.

Zama, Matthew C. Perry and Yokota have taken turns beating up on each other in DODEA-Japan play during the season. Over in DODEA-Korea, Daegu’s and more recently Humphreys’ batters have been mashing the ball.
