The Chesapeake-AA wrestling team dropped out of tonight's Class 4A-3A East region dual meet after several of its wrestlers came down with a skin infection, impetigo.

The Cougars, who were scheduled to host the tournament, will be replaced by Fallston, with the meet's site moved to Arundel.

Top seed Old Mill will take on Fallston and Arundel will meet South River in the semifinals at 5:30 p.m. The winners will meet in the finals at 7:30.

Chesapeake coach Rex Miller said five and possibly six of his wrestlers may have the infection, which could keep them off the mat from seven to 10 days.

MORE WRESTLING: John Carroll's Dean Roberts earned his 123rd career victory with Monday's pin over Archbishop Spalding's Andrew Creveling, making the 140-pounder Harford County's all-time winningest wrestler.

FOOTBALL: Mike Clay was named coach at St. Mary's, taking over for Mike Codd, who had been the coach for the past seven seasons.
