Even before his senior season began, the praise was coming in from virtually everywhere for Owings Mills wrestler Grant Johnson.That's what can happen when your final high school season is preceded by consecutive 2A-1A state titles and a seventh-place finish in the summer freestyle nationals, which qualifies you as an All-American.Former Clarion State wrestler and 16-time national champ Wade Schalles, a world champ in 1977, calls Johnson "a class act."Haswell Franklin, chairman of the Maryland State Wrestling Association, said, "Grant Johnson has as much or more potential to do well in Division I wrestling than any Maryland wrestler in the past decade."

Mark Shavers' second-period pin of Arundel's Sean Quigley at 160 pounds secured No. 9 Gilman's 39-23 victory over No. 11 Arundel yesterday.The tri-meet at Gilman (3-1), included Poly (3-4), which lost 57-6 to Gilman and 52-13 to Arundel (4-2).Poly's 145-pound Joe Collick (6-0, four pins) was his team's only double-winner."I knew we needed my pin because we were looking at 189 and heavyweight as tough matches," said Shavers (16-4).Gilman heavyweight Dave Shapiro lost, 4-2, in overtime to Arundel's John Noon (13-0, eight pins)

There seemed to be something charmed about the Old Mill and Northeast wrestling teams last weekend at Western Maryland College.Old Mill captured its unprecedented fifth straight 4A-3A state title, and 2A-1A champ Northeast -- which in 1976 became the first county team to win a state crown -- won its second in coach Al Kohlhafer's 23-year tenure.Anne Arundel County retained the 4A-3A title for the sixth straight year, since Broadneck won it in 1988, and became the first county to win both titles.

Heavyweight John Noonan is getting accustomed to pulling Arundel's wrestling team out of tight spots.Noonan's 3-2 title victory in last weekend's Arundel Holiday tournament helped the hosts (4-1) dethrone No. 13 Chesapeake (3-3), which was fourth.And last night at Arundel, the 6-foot-3, 225-pound junior pinned Chesapeake's Chuck McConnell with seven seconds left to lift the 11th-ranked Wildcats to a 34-27 win over the Cougars."I looked up at the clock and thought it was over because he was riding me well," said Noonan (11-0, nine pins)

Chuck McConnell is losing it -- weight, that is.As a heavyweight for No. 14 Chesapeake, McConnell has amassed a 17-4 record with 11 pins. He captured the Aberdeen Tournament crown with a 12-4 decision of the host team's previously unbeaten Aaron Wanless, a 275-pounder. He also finished second in the Chesapeake Cougar Invitational and third in the Arundel Holiday tournament.But the area's 189-pounders had better beware, because as of Friday, McConnell weighed just 197 pounds -- down from a puffy 223 at the season's outset.

A certain amount of pressure naturally comes with replacing a proven veteran head coach like Buddy Hepfer.But luckily for rookie coach Bill Zucco, Hepfer's influence is still strong among the members of the 1992 Arundel football squad.Zucco, a 15-year assistant at the school, readily admits that his team is very inexperienced and lacking depth, but the Hepfer work ethic still lingers."Thank God for Buddy Hepfer, he's a hell of a man. He left everything around here in great shape," said Zucco of Hepfer, who guided the Wildcats to a 4-6 mark in his 15th and final season in 1991.
