CAT students in front of artwork created by
SCAD students from old Prysmian Cables
Ridge View CAT students within the Engineering track of our grant attended a field study at Prysmian Cable, a manufacturing corporation that uses a wide variety of engineers in their facility.  From the Prysmian Group website they are a world leader in the energy and telecom cables and systems industry.  With nearly 140 years of experience, sales of over €7.5 billion in 2016, 21,000 employees across 50 countries and 82 plants, the Group is strongly positioned in high-tech markets and offers the widest possible range of products, services, technologies and know-how.  They operate in the businesses of underground and submarine cables and systems for power transmission and distribution, of special cables for applications in many different industries and of medium and low voltage cables for the construction and infrastructure sectors.  For the telecommunications industry, the Group manufactures cables and accessories for voice, video and data transmission, offering a comprehensive range of optical fibres, optical and copper cables and connectivity systems. 

CAT students were able to tour the entire process of making fibre optics cables, from the coloring of the cables, to quality control, to the shipping docks.  Truly a unique experience that did inspire several students.  They also took a Myers Briggs Personality Indicator to learn more about themselves and the skills needed to work with other types of personalities.

ATHLETICS: Varsity Wrestling Highlights

The Blazers finished in the top 15 of the Cardinal Newman Holiday Classic on Saturday, Dec. 2nd.  Jonathan Cardona, Lorenza Waiters, and Mike McQueen led the way for the team in scoring.  Mike McQueen just barely missed placing in his first varsity tournament, dropping a 3-1 match in the consolation semi-final that would have given him a chance to wrestle for 3rd place.

On Wednesday, December 6th, the Blazers wrestled 3 matches at Spring Valley.  Starting the night off against the Columbia Capitals, the team got out to an an early 10-0 lead before losing to a very tough team 54-26.  Against Richland Northeast the team was able to get back on the positive side of things with a 54-29 win.  In the final match of the evening with the host Vikings, the lead changed 5 times before Spring Valley was able to hold on to a 42-32 victory over the good guys in purple.  The Blazers were lead by Dimitrias Chestnut (3-0 on the evening), Quentin Frost (2-1), Brandon Holliman (2-1), and Jabari Hampton getting his first pin of the season.  

Thursday night the wrestling team grappled with Cardinal Newman and Westwood.  In the first match of the night, the Blazers traded the lead with the defending 4x State Champs from Cardinal Newman.  The Cardinals took a 36-23 lead with 4 matches to go.  A forfeit to Terry Carson, another first period pin from Jabari Hampton, followed by another pin from Jacob Shusterman set the stage for an exciting final match.  Off the bench, Mike McQueen takes the mat and quickly pins the heavyweight from Cardinal Newman, securing the 47-36 victory.


Their next match is Wednesday, December 14th against Silver Bluff and North Augusta at Silver Bluff HS and Saturday, December 16th at Milltown Duals in Fort Mill, SC.
