Lansdowne coach George Dunn's top veterans have been wrestling well early on this season, but the more inexperienced guys made a statement Tuesday night in a tri-meet at Woodlawn.
Freshmen Da'Shaun Childs (132 pounds) and Jacob Lipscomb (120) and sophomore Peyton Collins (138) recorded falls as the Vikings topped Catonsville, 40-30.
"Those pins were huge," Dunn said. "The young guys really stepped up and got pins that I wasn't expecting. Childs and Lipscomb were junior league wrestlers (last year) and Collins is a second-year wrestler."
Lansdowne received additional pins from seniors Thomas Weedon (220) and Luis Martinez (160) against Catonsville in what Dunn called a 'Landmark' win.
Dunn won't get an argument from Catonsville coach Eric Warm, who got pins from Eduardo Kelly (126), Brent Johns (152) and Chase Ritter (106).
"Things are finally coming together for us," said Dunn, whose team opened the season with a 59-12 thrashing of Kenwood on Dec. 6. "I have guys now that have been wrestling for me for four years. The consistency has really helped us become a good team."
