January 13, 2007|By Lem Satterfield | Lem Satterfield,sun reporter

Mount St. Joseph's Jake Bohn recorded his 17th pin of the year to gain a berth in today's 189-pound quarterfinals in his quest to become only the second three-time winner in the 27-team, Mount Mat Madness Invitational at Goucher College.

A repeat Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association and Maryland private schools champion, Bohn (27-4) looks to equal the feat accomplished by former teammate Mack Lewnes, a four-time All-Metro selection and repeat Wrestler of the Year.

A master of the headlock, Bohn (125 career wins) is expected to face Pennsylvania runner-up Zac Bennett of Westmont Hilltop, who has mastered the cradle pinning hold, in the final.

"Being mentioned in the same breath as Mack's an honor in itself," said Bohn, whose teammates, Frank Goodwin (103 pounds), Austin Clouse (112), Danny Orem (125), Benny Schaufele (130), Jake Selba (215) and Karl Green (285) also advanced.

No. 1 McDonogh (67.5 points, first place) advanced freshman Nick Schenk (103), Albert Woody (112), Eric Filipowicz (119), Josh Fitch (125), Ben Levin (130), Shane Milam (145), Kramer Whitelaw (152), Alex Pagnotta (171), Doug Schenk (215) and Lane Clelland (285), but lost top seed Curtis Holmes (140) to a 6-4 upset decision by 16th-seeded Zach Shreve of Severna Park.

"When you're in a McDonogh uniform," said Milam, a sophomore, "they're going to bring their best."

Tyler Scarinzi (119), Mitch Fenton (130), Mike Kulik (160), Sam Burdych (189) and Josh Boler (215) advanced for No. 3 Archbishop Curley. Also alive are three-time public schools state champions Vince Taweel (135) of Hammond and Eren Civan (160, 133-0 career record) of Walt Whitman - the latter in a class featuring South Carroll state runner-up Tyler Mullen (24-1).
