Ryan Davis becomes a creeping terror when stalking a wrestling opponent. Sunday night's 8-7, come-from-behind decision over Christian Franco, of White Hall, Pa., served as a good example, as the former McDonogh wrestler turned 140-pound junior at Blair Academy used a buzzer-beating takedown to win the prestigious Beast of the East Tournament at the University of Delaware. "It was a snap-down spin-behind. I didn't want a straight shot, get tangled up, waste time," said Davis, an Annapolis resident who trailed, 7-4, with 21 seconds left before an escape and a stalling point against Franco made it a one-point match.

"If you're in the bottom half of the bracket, line up on your right. If you're in the top half, line up on your ... " The ref abruptly stopped. He looked up from his papers, astonished to see a wave of blue and gray uniforms before him. He paused, pondered, and then said: "If you go to Blair, go to your right.
