The C. Milton Wright wrestling team honored its seniors Wednesday night with a lopsided, 60-15, dual meet win over a visiting and under-manned Havre de Grace team.

There were nine forfeits in the meet, with CMW getting the win in eight of the non-wrestled bouts. In the five that were, the Mustangs won three.


Jake Hellman had the first win at 152 pounds, after a forfeit opened the action at 145. Hellman won 9-6 over Ben Long.

John Keenan, one of the CMW seniors, followed with a 6-0 win at 160 over Christopher Boyd. "Well, I was trying to set up my shots, but I couldn't really get a set up in, so I would just shoot in and then I would just sprawl, spin around and then just work on top," Keenan said.

The third and final CMW wrestled win came at 195, with Rob Wheeler needing 1:26 to pin Skylar Lindsay.

Among the forfeits won by CMW, junior Wyatt Graham claimed one at 195. Graham, somewhat disappointed with the lack of action, still had reason to feel good, having won his 100th career match Monday.

"It was a really big night for me and also my family, because they've always been there supporting me and they've always been there to encourage me to go farther and eventually get to that big 100, but it was definitely a big moment for me and my parents," Graham said. "Also, I had a lot of students come out and watch and that's big for them because a lot of them have never seen a wrestling match, so it was a really big night for the whole team I think."

Havre de Grace's two wins came in the 106 and 132 weight classes. At 106, freshman Skylar Rupe, the lone female in the Warriors lineup, handled CMW's Arrius Lovette for an 7-1 win. Rupe nearly pinned Lovette, but the match went the whole six minutes.

Junior Alex Lloyd had the other Havre de Grace contested win at 132. Lloyd scored numerous takedown and back points against Jake Keenan to build up a 14-2 lead. Lloyd scored the pin 0:45 into the second period.

"My coach sent me out there with the intention of needing some work, so I went out and I got my work, but I had to pin him before I teched him," Lloyd said. "I knew my coach wanted the pin."

Mariners beat Elks

Joppatowne pulled out a 38-33 dual meet win at Elkton on Wednesday. Both teams forfeited four matches, and both teams forfeited the 170 weight class.

The Mariners got a pin from Malachi Stewart at 120 in 1:02 and at 126, Nate Winters followed with a pin in 1:29.

Corie Adams also added a pin at 182, getting the job in just 56 seconds.

Bobcats beat Indians

Bel Air had no trouble with visiting North East, winning big, 57-12, Wednesday.


The Bobcats won the first seven matches, beginning with Sam Queen's 11-7 decision over Tanner Moretz at 170.

Jarret Stencil then pinned Myron Buchanan in 1:46 at 182 and Tom Gomez also pinned at 195, stopping Legend Price in 1:37.

Following a forfeit for Jack Brink at 220, the Bobcats reeled off three more pins. Joe Cirillo pinned Jacob Bradfield in 0:52 at 285; Troy Dureza pinned Gabe Nuzzo in 1:01 at 106; and Brent Lorin pinned Mason Rice in 3:04 at 113.

Jacob Reed won 2-1 over Tyler Miller at 126, and at 145, Liam Bowers pinned Caleb Horsmon in 3:45. The other two Bel Air wins came at 152, with Scott Miser pinning Marshall Johnston in 0:58 and at 160, with Noah Beyers beating John Noll, 5-2.

Huskies win big, too

Patterson Mill was also a big winner Wednesday, rolling over visiting Chesapeake-AA, 51-22.

The Huskies won just three of the first seven matches, but swept the final seven bouts.

Winning for the Huskies were Isaac Leighton, by pin at 106; Chris Blackwell, by forfeit at 126; Atdadeoluwa Awodele, by pin at 138; Jace Valle-Shaw, by pin at 152; Luke Rosen, by pin at 160; Sean Reddish, by pin at 170; Hunter Crowley, by decision at 182; Arlen Agiliga, by decision at 195; Bruce Russell, decision at 220; and Kevin Neutzling, by pin at 285.
