Owings Mills finished second in the tournament with a 6-1 mark — Urbana from Frederick County was first with a 7-0 mark. Carr, a team captain, is 121-16 in his high school career. Maintaining a 3.65 GPA, he is undecided on a college but plans to wrestle at the next level. Carr also is a member of the school's band.
