Twenty years of training and just under 20 months remaining. 

That is the mindset Oak Harbor native J.D. Bergman is carrying with him as he continues his journey on the wrestling trail in the hopes that he can qualify for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. 

Bergman, a 2003 graduate of Oak Harbor High School, will return home on Feb. 7 to speak before the community at the high school. The first part of the event, which will be held in the cafeteria at 1 p.m., is a chicken barbecue lunch that costs $10. Bergman's speech will be held from 2-3 p.m. in the auditorium and costs $15. The cost of attending both events is $20. Proceeds go directly to Bergman's Road to Rio fund to help him on his journey to the Olympics. Bergman will discuss his Olympic journey and give a world-class health talk on wellness.

Oak Harbor outlasts Port Clinton, 46-31

Emily Ashley goes for two against the Rockets.

Behind a game-high 19 points from Andrea Cecil, Oak Harbor jumped out to an early lead and slowly took control on their way to a 46-31 victory over Port Clinton.

The Rockets outscored the Redskins, 13-7, in the first quarter and Abby Dornbusch's driving layup on the first play of the second quarter put Oak Harbor ahead by eight. Port Clinton would get within eight points just twice during the rest of the game. 

After Emily Ashley connected on a free throw to make it a 23-16 game late in the first half, Cecil took over, scoring the final six points of the quarter to give the Rockets a 29-16 lead going into the break. She connected on a free throw, hit a three-pointer from the left wing with 55 seconds remaining and, after a back-and-forth sequence that saw both teams turn the ball over, Cecil converted on a mid-range jumper with 21 seconds left.
