Broadneck 2nd at Arundel Duals

Throughout yesterday's Arundel Duals, Broadneck senior Abe Hunter and Chesapeake junior Zach O'Keeffe wrestled with one eye on their opponents, and the other on each other.

A returning runner-up in Anne Arundel County as well as the 4A-3A East Region and state tournaments to Annapolis' Bubby Graham, Hunter split time at 152 and 160 pounds while improving to 26-1 with eight victories yesterday, including a 5-0 shutout of Mount Mat Madness champ Nathan Cortes-Peck of DeMatha.


Tom Mulligan (285) also won eight bouts, rising to 24-2 for Broadneck (14-6), which finished second after falling to champion DeMatha of Hyattsville, 34-31.

O'Keeffe, who lost in overtime earlier to Hunter, improved to 25-4 with 19 pins at 171 pounds.


Others to go unbeaten included Loyola's Colin Schuster (135), who went 6-0 to improve to 32-3; Liberty's Eddie Digman (285) to 27-0, with seven of his eight wins being pins; Arundel's Nicole Woody (103), who went 7-0 to improve to 23-3; and Howard's Tyler Bulger (112), who moved to 29-2 with eight wins, including a 2-0 shutout of Bowie's highly touted Tyler Smith.

Annapolis Area Christian's Adam Palumbo (125) went 7-1 to go to 28-1, and Justin Mullinix (160) from Archbishop Spalding is 12-1 after winning five of six matches.
