1990-91 Anne Arundel County Wrestling At A Glance

South River Seahawks

December 12, 1990

Head coach: Charles "Chilly" Orme (sixth season).

1989-1990 record: 10-3, county 3A-2A League champions.

Top wrestlers: Seniors, Bill Whitcher (112), Brian Hunt (145), Jim Chomas (152), Steve Cleary (152) and Brian Anderson (189); juniors, Greg Nida (119), Andy McMahon (160) and Harold Love (171).

Another, 119-pound Dave Reul, injured his back during the football season. More wrestlers could be lost to academic ineligibility. Still, South River should finish among the
