Born in Chewelah, Yamamoto moved here with his family at the age of 4. His father, Calvin, was hired to work for the localCenex, and was eventually promoted to a position in Wenatchee, where he now manages ag supply and propane for the company. Cat's mother, Claudia, spends her time as a ski instructor at Mission Ridge. From the tender age of 3 years old, Cat learned to love skiing the slopes, as both his parents were ski instructors. His love for other sports followed him throughout his school career as well. Yamamoto has participated in soccer, track, football and wrestling. As a junior in football at Quincy High School, Yama- moto played comer back on defense, and halfback on of- fense. When he is not on a team, Yamamoto has been preparing for his senior project, which involves putting on the Rock & Ride event in George, a bike ride which will raise money for the George Community Hall and to purchase bike racks for the new Quincy library. He has far from forgotten about his love of skiing through the years. In fact, Yamamoto participates competitively in skiing. For the last two years, he has joined the ranks of the top 15 - and 16-year-olds in his sport at Sugarloaf, Maine to compete in downhill racing. Nationally, Yamamoto is ranked eighth in downhill racing, fourth in Super-G, fourth in the giant slalom, and 92nd in slalom. After football season is over, Yamamoto also goes to Vail, Colo. for training, and then to ski at summer camp in Mt. Hood. "I would like to make the U.S. Ski Team," he said. Two others from the Mis- sion Ridge Ski Team made the U.S. team. One competes Tammara GreenPost-Register Cai Yamamoto has a goal to join the U.S. Ski Team. in the World Cup competition.
