February 23, 1993|By Mike Nortrup | Mike Nortrup,Contributing Writer

Nine-year-old Kody Jenkins of Taneytown won an Elks' Hoop Shoot Maryland-Delaware-Washington free-throw championship Saturday in Frederick.

The youngster took the boys' age 8-9 title, when he went 5-for-5 in an overtime shoot-off.

Jenkins moves on to the Eastern Regional, scheduled for Charleston, W.Va., on March 19-20.


This year, for the first time, two Carroll County teams competed in the championship round of the Maryland Junior Wrestling League.

Sunday afternoon, the Warriors and Manchester, who had finished first and second, respectively, in the league's Navy Division, had their chance for glory against the other four top finishers in the Junior League's two divisions at Owings Mills High School.

But when the finals ended Sunday evening, these Carroll County teams were on the outside looking in, and McKim was the league champion.

The East Baltimore-based McKim squad, a regular-season third in the league's Navy Division, had beaten the Carroll teams that finished ahead of it.

McKim topped the Warriors, 41-29, in a semifinal and Manchester, 46-24, in the final.

Manchester jumped ahead 24-7, but was shut out after Randy Holmes pinned his opponent in the 85-pound class.

Besides Holmes, Manchester's winners were Tyler Alexander (60) and Fran Jackson (65) with pins and James Holmes (70) and Clint Day (80) with decisions.

The Warriors gave McKim a tough time early, leading 23-21 after Kevin Jeffress' 15-0 decision at 100 pounds.

But McKim then pulled well ahead before the Warriors' Justyn Weber (130) and Charlie Conaway (140) took decisions to narrow the lead to 35-29.

Then the locals, down by six and needing a pin to tie, sent 150-pound Mike Chenoweth to the mat in the final bout.

But that youngster, who had been undefeated in dual meets this season, was himself pinned.

Early Warriors winners over McKim were Kellen Weber (55) on a pin, Bryan Hamper (65) and Jared Zillmer (75) with decisions, and Andy Seal (95) on a disqualification.

L Manchester won a preliminary match over Severna Park, 48-34.

After losing its opening bout, Manchester took six of the next seven and cruised from there.

Its winners were Alexander, Zach Maloff (65), Jackson (70), James Holmes (75), Randy Holmes, Adam Boog (90), Dameon Davis (107), Craig Hann (130) and Jason Simons (150).

Manchester held on to oust Randallstown in the semifinal, 37-35.

The locals had pulled far ahead when Dameon Davis won at 115 but took only one bout thereafter.

That win was supplied by Greg Hann, who gave Manchester its winning points when he took the 130-pound weight.

Manchester's other winners were Jeremiah Demario (55), Alexander, Jackson (65), Day, Randy Holmes (85), Boog, Todd Bosley (95) and Eddy Davis (107).
