Michael Bohaty completed a storied high school career that concluded with selection to the Shrine Bowl and a place atop the Pius X career scoring list on the hardwood. Bohaty was an All-City selection and renowned as one of the best all-around athletes to represent the Thunderbolts. Bohaty joined the Nebraska Cornhusker football program after high school and suffered a career ending neck injury during his sophomore year.
Bohaty went on to complete his degree in secondary education and began a 46 year career as a teacher, coach, and administrator before retiring in June 2014. His career in education spanned schools across Nebraska and Kansas and concluded with a 25 year term in administration at Bishop Miege High School in Kansas City. Bohaty celebrated 46 years of marriage to his wife Cynthia ’67 in June, and the couple has three children.
Bohaty: “One of many fond memories of my career includes advancing to the state basketball tournament my sophomore year by defeating LNE and LSE in district play. I also recall playing Sioux City Heelan my senior year in snow, biting wind, and temperatures in the 20s. We had never defeated Heelan but we scored at the end and brought the ’65 season to a very exciting finish.”
