Wilde Lake senior Tola Morakinyo (170) just completed an outstanding wrestling season, winning county and regional titles. He placed second at last weekend's state tournament, losing a close decision to Bel Air's William Holder-Moore, the wrestler he defeated in the regional finals.

Morakinyo finished the season 39-1.

He has also won a county championship in outdoor track in the pole vault, and was a first team all-county defensive end in football.

Morakinyo took a 30-second timeout with us while preparing for the county wrestling tournament a few weeks ago.
