With the regular season winding down, the rankings are beginning to round into shape.
Big movers in the third edition are Mt. Hebron's Jeff Hayden (106) who was a finalist at the Battle at the Base, River Hill's Lee Carter (120), who upset Wilde Lake's Jordan Trinh, 5-4, Centennial's Hutson Baumann (132), who edged Glenelg's Austin Pagnotta, 4-1, and Atholton's Patrick Mullens (152), who defeated Oakland Mills' David Ulysse, 1-0, on Tuesday.
The return of Raven Coleman-Brooks (145) to the Hammond line-up shakes things up at 145 and 152, where teammate Jonathan Goodwin bumped back up to.
152 was especially difficult to figure out because Reservoir's Brian Beach, Centennial's Nick Shearin, River Hill's Donovan DeLore, Glenelg's Troy Walter, Wilde Lake's Ryan Drazenovic and Mt. Hebron's Stefan Chavis have all beaten each other, more or less. I tried to come up with the best solution, but it's certainly open to discussion.
There is a similar situation at 182 between Hammond's Michael Waters, Atholton's Matt Fields, Oakland Mills' Dominick Clarke and Glenelg's Curran Robertson.
Throw in a few situations where I can't figure out what weight a wrestler is going to be at for the county tournament, or if and when a wrestler is coming back from injury, and there is plenty to discuss.
