Parkville 171-pounder Yousef Mohamed says he tried out for the wrestling team at the suggestion of his ex-girlfriend. Judging from his success, he might want to think about getting over their "technical difficulties."

Mohamed registered his 20th, 21st, 22nd and 23rd pins of the year, the last in 56 seconds over Milford Mill's Charles Blue in the title bout of yesterday's Overlea Tournament to rise to 25-0.

"I love this sport for the physical contact," said Mohamad, 18, a senior. "When I'm in the circle, it's me and the enemy."

Champion Milford Mill crowned Darian Allen (103), Terrance Owens (125) and Ryan Smith (160). Allen (18-3) edged Fallston's Carmel Libercci, 8-3.

Runner-up John Carroll, lacking John Von Paris, crowned Matthew Miller (130), Eric Hart (135) and Tommy LaVey (140).

Woodlawn's Alex Harper (285) rose to 20-1, pinning defending Baltimore County champ Nile Alexander of Milford Mill in 5:36.

Lansdowne's Earl Eppard (112) beat Mervo's three-time city champ Lamone Wilson, and Pikesville's Mitchell Steinberg (145) got revenge over Woodlawn's Justin Wildy, 8-7. Other champs included Mervo's Bernard Tillman (189) and Ja-Mar Rowlett (215); Woodlawn's Denzell Mitchell (119) and Kenwood's Jason Castillo (152).
