"I was pretty confident coming into the tournament, but it was a hard tournament," said Huntley, the No. 2 seed at 113 pounds. "My head is pretty skinned up from the finals. We were hand-fighting a lot, and it was a rough match."

"I'm going to go home, eat a little and go to bed," he said. "It was a lot of matches, and I'm so tired."
Maryland teams put 21 wrestlers into the semifinals Friday. Eight of them made the finals.
Bishop McNamara's Alfred Bannister (138), McDonogh's Myles Martin (152) and Toby Hague (160), Mount St. Joseph's Tyler Rill (170) and DeMatha's Dylan Devine (195) finished runner-up.
Six Maryland teams finished in the top 10: McDonogh (fourth), Georgetown Prep (fifth), St. Paul's (sixth), Archbishop Spalding (seventh), DeMatha (eighth) and Archbishop Curley (10th).
"We had a great season," Archbishop Curley coach Greg Kessler said. "It started rocky, but we all came together, and our last three tournaments were great."
Huntley had three pins and two decisions over the two days at nationals. He won his semifinal against Archbishop Spalding's Michael Still, 5-0, then beat No. 1 seed Charles Tucker of New Jersey's Blair Academy, 6-0.
Clark won his semifinal, 9-0, then upset No. 1 seed Dylan Milonas of Blair, 2-1, in the final. Milonas had beaten Clark at the Ironman Tournament this season and was the defending National Preps champion.
"There were a lot of Maryland people in this tournament," McDonogh coach Pete Welch said, "and there were a lot of Maryland people pulling for other Maryland wrestlers when their guys weren't on the mat. It was really kind of nice.
"Jack wrestled great, and we had a couple of other kids in the hunt with Myles and Toby taking second, Xavi Ramos taking fourth. I'm very pleased with how all our kids competed."
Good Counsel's Snyder, the No. 1 seed, swept into the final with three pins and two technical falls before beating No. 2 seed A.J. Vizzcarando of Wyoming Seminary.
