Lakers romp in Invitational

January 10, 1993|By Lem Satterfield | Lem Satterfield,Staff Writer

Seventh-ranked host Boys' Latin (220 points) placed all 12 wrestlers in the top four of their weight classes, cruising past runner-up Tatnall (145.5) in yesterday's second annual Laker Invitational.

For the Lakers (3-0), who tied Mervo for last year's title, the win came over the Delaware Independent Conference champion with 3-0 dual-meet record. Howard (126), which is 5-1, was third in the nine-team event.

The Lakers' champs were Josh Silverman (103 pounds, 11-4), Tim Berger (112, 17-1) , Mike Harrison (125, 16-3), Jim Quinn (130, 15-3), Shane Marquess (135, 17-2) and Chris Smith (171, 14-4). The Lakers' runner-up was Mike Cangemi (145), and third were Ashley Harrison

(119), Lev Galitzen (140), Erik Fitez (152) and Pat Cairns (189), with Jarrett Leeb (160).

"This makes two tournaments in a row where everybody has placed," said Ryan McClernan, assistant to coach Jim Currie. "Everybody placed at John Carroll and we had 11 of 12 place at Loch Raven."

Silverman missed weight for the Gilman match, forcing the Lakers to forfeit his bout. But he got his sixth and seventh pins yesterday, and Berger's 10th pin followed, over St. Mary's Ryken's Andy Raley (11-2, nine pins).

Mike Harrison's 12th pin of the year came over Mark Grinspoon (10-2), and Quinn used five takedowns to win, 14-3.

Marquess, the area's pin leader with 14, got his ninth first-period fall over Mervo's Tyrell Armstrong (5-1), and Smith (171) got his 10th fall over Tatnall's John Noel (12-3).

Marquess, who pinned his three opponents in exactly three minutes, has lost only to Mount St. Joseph's fourth-ranked Paul Scott and Calvert Hall's fifth-ranked Brendan James.

Howard's Jason Shefrin (145, 13-0, all pins) got his 10th first-period fall over Boys' Latin's Mike Cangemi (17-4). Shefrin had three pins in 2:49, and was joined in victory by teammates John Wiland (152, 13-1) and Seth Aldridge (160, 11-2).

Kenwood's Jason Miller (119, 13-1) beat Tatnall's Todd Danner (14-4), 15-8, for his title after edging the Lakers' Ashley Harrison, 9-7, in an overtime semifinal. Miller's teammate, Warren Burke (140, 10-3), pinned his three opponents.
