Head coach: Jim Nemeth (fourth season).

1989-1990 record: 4-4.

Top wrestlers: Seniors, Stephen Harris (140), Al Prioleau (135); juniors, Osric Prioleau (171), Jack Bailey (140), Ralph Ellis (189), Carlo Santoni (152); sophomores, Chris Snead (112), Paul Laumann (145), John Donahue (152), Dennis Fohner (130), Ryan Neenan (125); freshmen, Ben Hamilton (145), Don Kerr (103) Coach's outlook: "Traditionally, most of the teams in the MSA C Conference have trouble filling all of their weight classes so everyone matches up pretty evenly. This year, we're able to fill 10 or 11 weight classes, but we don't have that much depth. Our success depends to some degree on how well our experienced guys do and how long it takes for the less experienced guys to catch on. We have some kids with experience at the middle weights, 135-171, so that seems to be our strength. Half of our team has experience and the other half doesn't, but what we do have is a group of young men who have worked very hard in the off-season. The younger guys just need to get some confidence in themselves and that will come through mat time."

Anne Arundel County Sun outlook: Like any team, the inexperienced players can improve because of the wrestlers they have around them. That's what Nemeth is banking on. With talent in the middle weights and eager wrestlers in the upper and lower weight classes, the Cavaliers stand a good chance of improving on last season. But to do that, they'll have to remain healthy. Nemeth is encouraged by the team's progress thus far, but his wrestlers must avoid injuries, which would put the Cavaliers squad in deep trouble.
