In his six years, Coach Bazzi has coached numerous state qualifiers while continuing Coach Slatt’s legacy of guiding his athletes into the collegiate ranks with athletes competing at West Point, University of Portland, University of Chicago, PLU and Xavier.
While at O’Dea as an athlete, Bazzi competed at the state meet six times in cross country and track & field, was a member of the 1995 State champion track team and was runner-up in the 1996 state 3200m race prior to earning All-American honors in the 2 mile race later that season.
