Wrestlers for South Carroll had plenty of time to regroup after their disappointing fifth-place finish in the recent Arundel Holiday Tournament, and last night's blowouts of host Glenelg and Hammond, by a combined 94-33, were the result.

The seventh-ranked Cavaliers (6-0) routed Hammond, 47-18, and Glenelg, 47-15, scoring 11 pins and two technical falls against only eight combined losses to their opponents. Hammond (8-6-1) won, 41-22, over Glenelg (3-4).

Fifth-ranked state champion Bryan Hamper (145) led South Carroll with two pins, including one over Hammond's county and regional champ, Joey Killo, to improve to 13-2. His second-ranked teammate, Dan Patterson (135), who is 14-0, and Travis Mohlhenrich (160) each had a pin and a technical fall.

South Carroll's other double winners were Andrew Gold (103) and Andy Cumberland (171), with two pins each, and Buddy Olson (130), son of coach Peter Olson, with two major decisions.

"We wrestled well tonight, but I felt like we did that at Arundel," said Patterson, who was third in the 4A-3A state tournament and, this year, owns a win over Atholton's state runner-up, Brian Radik.

"We didn't have a full team at Arundel. People were sick. We're definitely going to go out and prove we're better than that, but we don't feel we really have to."

One of the Cavaliers' better wrestlers, fifth-ranked Kellen Weber (125), slipped to a 12-2 record after falling behind 13-3 in an eventual 16-10 loss to Hammond's Jimmy Davis. Davis (19-2), who was among Hammond's four double winners, scored six takedowns to defeat Weber for the second straight year - he pinned him last season.

Hammond's Russel Tebeleff (119) and Ryan Mackin, who wrestled at 140 and 145, respectively, had two pins each. The Bears' Marshall Porter (152) won two decisions by a combined five points. Glenelg's Steve Marshall (112) was his team's only double winner, scoring a pin and a major decision.

Mackin, ranked third, continued to look as if he is the state's best at 140 pounds, moving to 21-0 with 12 pins and five technical falls. Davis was equally impressive, scoring several times with the duck-under to a shrug takedown, which was the perfect counter to Weber's headlock.
