30-second timeout with ... Wes Beattie, Reservoir 170-pound wrestler
Reservoir junior 170-pounder Wesley Beattie has the distinction of clinching two dual meet victories for his team this season with last-bout wins: Dec. 20 against Oakland Mills, and Jan. 22 at Mt. Hebron. He was also crowned as a champion at the Grapple at the Brook tournament. Last season, wrestling at 145 pounds, Beattie finished 24-11 and placed fourth at the county tournament, but failed to place at regionals. This year, he is the fourth-ranked wrestler in a very tough Howard County 170-pound weight class that features Wilde Lake's undefeated Tola Morakinyo, Glenelg's Anthony Pagnotta and River Hill sophomore Brian Kirby.
