Miller's record is nearly neat as a pin Wrestling


A year has made a big difference for Broadneck's Shawn Miller.

Miller, who is top-ranked by the Maryland State Wrestling Association at 112 pounds, pinned his three opponents in a combined 3 minutes, 45 seconds in Broadneck's holiday wrestling tournament during the weekend.

He has pinned 10 of his 12 opponents this season, including six in the first period.

"I wasn't a pinner last year," said Miller, who is 12-0 and finished third in the state at 112 last year. "I was wrestling 112, but I only weighed 106 last year. I've bulked up, and I'm stronger this year."

Miller was one of five champions for the ninth-ranked Bruins, who placed 11 wrestlers in the top four of their weight classes to outdistance Anne Arundel County rival Southern, 196.5-117, in the nine-team tournament.

Arundel also won its holiday tournament, edging Meade, 198-190, in an eight-team event.

Second-ranked Old Mill and No. 6-ranked Gilman finished third and fourth, respectively, in the St. Stephen's tournament in Virginia, and top-ranked North Carroll was fourth at the Delone Catholic tournament in Pennsylvania.
