Mervo has look of winner in MSA B Conference

January 17, 1994|By Lem Satterfield | Lem Satterfield,Staff Writer

Mervo, coached by Dwight Warren and assistant Ron Taylor, looks increasingly like the favorite to win this year's Maryland Scholastic Association B Conference dual-meet crown.

The host Mustangs won the weekend's Eastside Tournament with champs in sixth-ranked heavyweight Shawn Brodie (12-1), McAnthony Thompson (130, 13-0), Terry McNair (103, 8-3) and Millard West (119, 9-3).

Wednesday, the Mustangs (6-0), coming off last 70-0 shutout of Patterson, visit two-time defending league champ Walbrook, which last week suffered its first loss, 40-33 to St. Mary's.

St. Mary's was the league champ two years ago before being dethroned by Walbrook, also the defending city tournament champ.

A victory over Walbrook would turn the Mustangs' Feb. 9 meeting at St. Mary's into the showdown for the league title.

Regional standings

The following are the standings for local teams vying for spots in the Feb. 16 regional and Feb. 19 state dual-meet tournaments, with the top four teams earning berths.

In the 18-team 3A-4A North Region, which includes Harford, Howard, Baltimore and Carroll counties, the top five are Perry Hall, Eastern Tech and Franklin (tied for second), Kenwood and South Carroll. In the 19-team, 1A-2A North, which includes Harford and Baltimore counties, Owings Mills, Aberdeen, Hereford, Fallston and North Harford are on top.

Overlea has openings

Hidden Talent

Carver's Kama Owens (189) pinned his way to the title in last weekend's Eastside Tournament at Mervo, raising his record to 9-0 with eight pins. He is the defending Baltimore City champion in his weight class.
