“It’s always nice to accomplish something, but I really just enjoy doing what I’m doing,” Ohlson said.
Win No. 301 came the next day when the Wildcats beat previously undefeated Holbrook, 59-51.
Ohlson has been coaching his alma mater for 27 seasons — he will enter his 28th on the baseball diamond in a couple months — and after teaching middle school gym in Swansea for 34 years, and going through hip replacements and an aneurism, he still isn’t quite ready to call it quits yet.
“Obviously you want to try to win, everybody does. That’s why you do it But now I put it in perspective,” Ohlson said. “I love [coaching] more now than I ever did. I love practices. I love the games. I’m not burnt out. I’m very content.”
Ohlson expects to stick around at least two more years, when West Bridgewater is scheduled to open its new high school.
