1990-91 Anne Arundel County Wrestling At A Glance

Northeast Eagles

December 12, 1990

Head coach: Al Kohlhafer (16th year).

1989-1990 record: 2-8.

Top wrestlers: Seniors, Kevin Shepke (145-152), Jaime Katlic (152-160), Ed Reitz (171), Noble Henry (145); junior, Steve Bohn (119); sophomores, Jason Farrinelli (130), Chad Weibe (135), Al Grunder (140), Pat Rucker (160), Charles Bossum (189); freshmen, Lonnie Harris (103), Matt Jewer (112), Jason Grunder (125) and Duane Williams (Hvy).

Coach's outlook: "I think in the next couple of years, we'll really be competitive. At the moment, we have a couple of injuries (Williams, injured hip), but we'll have a full team before long. We are pretty young right now, but that's kind of exciting. It gives us something to look forward to in the future. Over the years, we haven't won a lot of dual matches, and lots of times we've had to forfeit three of four matches, but we've still stayed competitive, and I think a lot of teams respect us. We probably won't win a lot of dual matches this year, but if we can get some kids into the regionals and the states winning a couple of meets will be gravy."

Anne Arundel County Sun outlook: After finishing 2-8 last season, the Eagles' program has nowhere to go but up. But they will have to improve without the services of former county champ and state runner-up Duane Talley and upper-weight wrestler Al Schaffer. Northeast's best chances for wins will be against inexperienced foes Severna Park, North County and Glen Burnie. A few wrestlers may excel in the postseason county tourney, but the Eagles will have their best success in their Class 2A/1A regional tournament against weaker competition.
