COLLEGE PARK -In winning his second straight state title last night, Avi Friedman of Owings Mills denied River Hill's Scott Mantua his third in a row. Mantua, a senior, was pinned for the first time in his high school career in 3 minutes, 48 seconds, as Friedman won the 112-pound Class 2A-1A state title at Cole Field House. Friedman, last year's 103-pound state champion as a junior, finished the season 34-0 and is 81-0 over the past two seasons. Friedman won with a spladle, a cross between a cradle and a split.

wrestling Wrestler of the Year Nathan Kraisser, Centennial The 103-pound freshman went 39-1, including a victory at 112 pounds during the regular season when he wrestled up a class to face two-time state champ Scott Mantua of River Hill. He followed that confidence boost by doing what no other wrestler in the 4A-3A class could - he pinned his first three opponents and then won the state title, 12-0. Coach of the Year Ryan Kanaskie, Reservoir The Gators were a surprise from their opening match when they routed Centennial, 51-28.

River Hill's Scott Mantua appears to be a typical 15-year-old sophomore finding his way in high school. He's on the quiet side, gets A's and B's in the classroom and enjoys hanging out with friends. Find him on his dirt bike, and he's happy. Snowboarding and fishing are fun, too. But when Mantua gets on the wrestling mat, that all changes. "You wouldn't think he has the personality of a wrestler. And then he gets on the mat and just tears it up. It's fun to watch," said fellow River Hill sophomore Nathan White, who wrestles at 119 pounds and was a regional champion and state qualifier last season.

Let me make one thing clear: Nicole Woody, who failed to become the first girl to win a state wrestling championship last Saturday, lost going for the victory. For those of us who think the term "March Madness" refers to any wrestling tournament, high school or college, that occurs anywhere during that month, we couldn't ask for anything more than that. Woody is the perky 103-pounder who has wrestled for Arundel High School for three years. Among women, she's a world junior champion. Her high school opponents have been boys, most of whom have found themselves staring up at the wrong end of a Nicole Woody smackdown.

A few Columbia high school students learned a tough lesson about politics this week when their General Assembly bill to lower the age requirement for bone marrow donors was shelved for this session. The measure, which would lower the minimum age for donors from 18 to 16 with parental consent, was referred for summer study because of "technical problems" in it, said Del. John Adams Hurson, a Montgomery County Democrat and chairman of the Health and Government Operations Committee. He refused to be more specific.

In yesterday's highly anticipated matchup between top-ranked River Hill and No. 5 Old Mill, neither team flinched or showed any weaknesses as they traded leads early in the night. The Patriots, however, showed the type of resilience that will make them one of the Class 4A-3A teams to beat by winning five of the last six matches for a 31-24 victory. Old Mill improved to 13-1 and is developing into the type of team that could challenge for its 11th overall state title. "It was a great match that went back and forth," said Old Mill coach Dan Youngblood.
