Atholton had suffered one setback in 16 matches entering yesterday's Howard County League showdown at No. 7 River Hill. But the visiting Raiders were emphatically reacquainted with losing during a rout that ended their winning streak at nine matches. Ryan Lauer (125 pounds) put the finishing touches on a 52-10 victory with his 5-2 decision over Ryan Conroy as River Hill won 12 of 14 bouts in capturing its 28th consecutive dual meet - its 38th straight over a Maryland team - and its second consecutive league dual-meet crown.

A much-hyped McDonogh team, one with only three seniors, was host for yesterday's 27th-annual Ray Oliver wrestling tournament, and the No. 1-ranked Eagles showed they may be even better than advertised. Individual champions Chet Naylor (119), Zak Johns (130), Ricky Tippett (135), Ryan Davis (140) and Geoff Miller (171) paced McDonogh (274 points) to its third straight tournament title over runner-up North Carroll (212). "We want to be No. 1 at the end. It's what drives us, pushes us to be the best," said Johns, a junior who was a runner-up in last winter's National Preps tournament.

Annapolis played host to last night's tri-meet with No. 11 Broadneck and No. 13 Arundel, but the visitors -- especially the Wildcats' upper weights -- took center stage.Trailing Broadneck 16-15, the Wildcats (3-0) used three pins to take a 33-16 lead with three bouts left, all but locking up the win with Arundel heavyweight John Noon yet to wrestle.A major decision by Jake Schaffer (171 pounds) and a pin by Matt Superczynski (189, 5-0) brought the Bruins (2-1) within 33-26, but Noon (6-0, five pins)

TORONTO -- As Leona Gasse picks up the 5-inch red ball, she studies -- for what, maybe the two thousandth time? -- the five little pins before her.Hit the head pin straight on and, chances are, that's the only one that will fall down. Five points. Big deal.But get a nice little curve into the pocket and then she's looking at a 15. That would be nice, eh?With an expertise developed from 25 years on the lanes, she steps forward and rolls the ball her daughter gave her as a birthday gift. It finds the desired arc, a gentle curve that lands between the first and third pins.

That the No. 4 Westminster Owls defeated the No. 11 Francis Scott Key Eagles last night wasn't a big surprise.It was the convincing manner in which it happened, the way the Owls jumped on the visiting Eagles from the start and didn't let up, not giving them one minute to think they were in the match.The Owls took advantage of every opening in a 46-21 win over perennial power Key, which hadn't lost a regular-season dual match since the 1994-95 season."We worked real hard for this. Four-hour practices the last couple of days, literally," said Westminster coach Henry Mohlhenrich.

State champ Mike DiLeonardi, state runners-up Mike Hines and Nick Basta, and Basta's brother Dave, four former wrestlers who helped Old Mill win a state-record six championships, could hardly stomach seeing their former teammates lose twice in a night.They saw the No. 14 Patriots (4-3, 4-1) get bounced, 39-20, by unranked North Carroll (5-1), and routed, 43-15, by No. 12 Arundel (6-2, 5-1) -- the latter being the Wildcats' first win over the Patriots since 1988.Old Mill's only double winners were Chris Combs (103, 16-2)

Both Hammond coach Jeff Starnes and Oakland Mills coach Brian Chadwick came away from last night's wrestling match with mixed feelings.Starnes was pleased his team defeated the defending dual meet and county tournament champions, 40-24. But he had hoped his Bears would win by a larger margin."This was redemption for last year and a good win against a strong program," Starnes said. "But Oakland Mills is rebuilding like we were last year. We didn't wrestle up to our potential."Chadwick was pleased that the final score wasn't worse, but was disappointed at what he thought were many fundamental mistakes and at his team's inability to avoid being pinned.
