North County freshman Olivia Devine isn't specifically interested in furthering wrestling as a sport for girls. Instead, she's totally focused on making the varsity lineup and making a future for herself in the sport. To do that, the 5-foot-1, 138-pound Devine has her eyes set of getting her weight down to 132 or 126, where she will have a chance at earning a starting spot in a wrestle-off with her teammates. Her coach, Wayne Liddick, describes her as a serious competitor who has been coming to his open-mat nights in the summer for two years with her brother, Dylan, a DeMatha senior who was a state runner-up last year.

Centennial's Joon Kim is the exception to the rule.Kim, a defending Class 3A-4A state champion, hopes to lead the Eagles to their first county title since 1984. If he does, it would be unusual, because Kim didn't know a thing about wrestling three years ago."It's almost unheard of that someone who didn't know what wrestling was could become a state champ in three years," Centennial coach Todd DeCrispino said.Because wrestling involves learning a lot of technique, the normal path to a state title is an early start in youth leagues.

Pat Downey North County, wrestling The junior set a school record last week when he pinned his Old Mill opponent in the 171-pound class in eight seconds. "Anything under 10 seconds is rare and fast," said Don Foderaro, Downey's coach. "You don't see eight seconds often. He took the kid down on his back, and it was over." Downey is 24-0 this season with 18 pins. He has not lost since the 2008 National Preps Tournament, where he wrestled in the 145-pound class and finished sixth. Foderaro said Downey maximizes his natural athletic talent with hard work, which also makes him strong on technique.

Though he spent several minutes working on the cut, the Harper's Choice Middle School pupil wasn't unhappy. Alex kept on smiling because he has found a new sport that he likes. "My brother did it last year, and he said I should," Alex said.

The waiver enabling Baltimore County wrestling teams to practice today for tomorrow's county championships does not extend to basketball. Ron Belinko, coordinator of athletics for the Baltimore County public schools, said many of the school parking lots have yet to be cleared of snow. "We're under strict orders from our facilities people and the superintendent not to clog up our parking lots, because they need to be cleared in anticipation of opening schools on Monday," said Belinko, adding that the lots can accommodate the few cars needed for wrestling practice.
