Boys

Nick Schenk

McDonogh, wrestling

The Eagles wrestler scored a technical fall, a major decision and three decisions, including one in overtime, to win last weekend's two-day Beast of the East tournament that ended Sunday at the University of Delaware. Schenk, 15, is the first Maryland freshman to win the event, considered one of the nation's most difficult invitational wrestling tournaments.

Schenk won his first bout, 16-1; his second, 13-2; and his third, 2-0, over Austin Damico of Kellam High of Virginia Beach, Va. In his semifinal bout, Schenk overcame a 3-2 third-period deficit to score a 5-3 victory over Bergen (N.J.) Catholic's Frank Cagnina, a wrestler Schenk had never beaten in six previous meetings.

Schenk is 14-0 after an overtime takedown for a 3-1 title-bout decision over Pat Owens of Germantown (Pa.) Academy. A seven-time junior league state champion, Schenk entered high school as the most decorated wrestler in Maryland history.

Others considered / / Malcolm Delaney, Towson Catholic, basketball; Greg Jubb, Loyola, indoor track; Tony Mack, Owings Mills, wrestling.
