WESTMINISTER — WESTMINSTER -- Owings Mills advanced 10 of 11 wrestlers past the state 3A-4A quarterfinals and six into the semifinals yesterday at Western Maryland College.
Two-time state champion Old Mill and North Carroll are tied in the 1A-2A tournament heading into today's semifinals and finals.
Owings Mills goes into the second day with 10 wrestlers, including Gregg Kessler (31-0) at 125 pounds.
"I always set goals," said Owings Mills coach Guy Pritzker. "If we get three guys in the finals, we can win."
Owings Mills has won all five tournaments it entered this season, including a record-setting performance in the Baltimore County tournament.
Aberdeen senior Matt Slutzky is attempting to become the eighth three-time champion in tournament history. Slutzky has a 49-second pin and a technical fall in 3 minutes, 19 seconds in his first two matches.
