All-Baltimore County: Wrestling

2008-09 Winter All-Metro
The Baltimore Sun's All-Metro and All-County selections for basketball, wrestling and track.

Wrestler of the Year
Avi Friedman, Owings Mills

The senior might have been the most dominant wrestler in the area, capping off a 34-0 season by pinning Scott Mantua of River Hill for the Class 2A-1A state championship at 112pounds. Friedman finished the season with 15 pins and won both the Baltimore County championship and the Class 2A-1A North regional title.

Coach of the Year
Guy Pritzker, Owings Mills

Pritzker broke the state record for career dual victories by earning his 400th in a 64-10 victory over Eastern Tech in January. In a season in which Pritzker thought the Eagles would struggle because of losses to graduation, Owings Mills remained one of the most dominant teams in the metro area. After taking second in the Baltimore County championships competing against teams in higher state classifications, the Eagles won the Class 2A-1A North regional championship and sent 11wrestlers to the state championships. Owings Mills also reached the state dual-meet finals last month.
