March 16, 1993|By Mike Nortrup | Mike Nortrup,Contributing Writer

In much of Maryland, 1993 will be remembered for its blizzard.

But in Eldersburg, Winfield, Sykesville and other South Carroll communities, 1993 also will be known as the year the Warriors reached the pinnacle of state youth wrestling.

When Saturday's Maryland-Virginia youth wrestling championships at Western Maryland College were over, the South Carroll-based Warriors finished first in the 45-team field of rec wrestling clubs with 149 team points. The Warriors never had placed higher than 15th.

Manchester, the team titlist the two previous years, tied Dundalk for second with 135 1/2 points.

The 1993 bi-state championships will be memorable for Manchester's Randy Holmes and the Warriors' Mike Chenoweth.

The two youngsters won titles in the 85- and 150-pound weight classes, respectively.

The Warriors' Jared Zillmer (75), Josh Zillmer (115) and Charlie Conaway (137), along with Manchester's Tyler Alexander (60), placed second.

Manchester's Tyler Alexander (50), Fran Jackson (65) and Eddy Davis (107) were third.

Fourth were the Warriors' Bryan Hamper (65) and Justyn Weber (130).

Placing fifth were Manchester's James Holmes (70) and Dameon Davis (107), along with the Warriors' Joe Smith (85).

Coming in sixth were the Warriors' Jeremy Lignelli (115) and Manchester's Adam Boog (90).

Warriors coach Jerry Little complimented Western Maryland College for its hospitality, which included lending dormitory space to members of the Baltimore-based McKim wrestling team who were stranded Saturday night because of the weather.

"They were tremendous," Little said of college officials who hosted the tournament.

Teams in the tournament included clubs from the Maryland Junior Wrestling League, the Capital Area Wrestling League, Southern Maryland Wrestling League and the Anne Arundel County Wrestling League.
