After watching teammate Justin Bowser earn a 4A-3A state title last season, Arundel's George Ester returned hungry for one of his own. The Sun's No. 3 119-pounder seems well on his way, judging by yesterday's 12-team Arundel Invitational Duals, where the senior dominated the deepest weight class to lead the host Wildcats to a runner-up finish behind DeMatha of Hyattsville. Among Ester's eight victories was his second win of the year over Archbishop Spalding's private schools champion, Chris Laidley, 4-3. Ester also won, 21-10, over Sonny Scardina of Chesapeake (Anne Arundel)

When wrestlers George Ester and Justin Bowser arrived at Arundel High School as freshmen in 2002, their matches in practice were not kind to Ester. Bowser, who entered high school as a decorated junior league standout, showed little mercy on the beginner, throwing Ester around and pinning him at will. "He beat [me senseless]," Ester recalled. "He would pin me in, like, seconds." But each beating that Bowser delivered hardened Ester. Every time that Bowser scored, it gave Ester motivation to improve.

If there was any doubt about the distinctiveness of August Wilson's language and characters, or the breadth of his vision, a trip to Center Stage's production of Radio Golf should quell those doubts. Radio Golf may not be the most exceptional chapter in Wilson's extraordinary decade-by-decade chronicle of 20th-century African-American life. But the play, which is expected to open on Broadway next year, contains rewarding reminders of the works that preceded it and of the greatness of their author, who died in October.
