Mervo's basketball team has grabbed a lot of attention this winter, overshadowing the rejuvenation of the wrestling team, which is off to its best start (6-1) since it won back-to-back titles in 1985 and 1986.The wrestlers have been led by junior Bobby Giles (171), who lost his first match and has won 12 straight, including two tournament titles; junior Troy Graves (135), who is 13-1; and senior Jeff Young (145), who is 9-2 with one tournament title.Mervo will wrestle Dunbar tomorrow. Also tomorrow, Southwestern will meet St. Mary's in a battle between the Maryland Scholastic Association B Conferences' only unbeaten teams.

When Linda Caccavalla got the head coaching job at Perry Hall this season, the only thing she knew was that she was inheriting a 5-14 team.Now she has a playoff team, and a large task ahead of her.Last night, Caccavella's Gators (15-6) used a variety of zones and presses, and a deep bench to outlast visiting Mervo, 53-48, in a Class 4A North region quarterfinal.The Mustangs rallied from a 17-point deficit in the fourth quarter, but ran out of gas.Jessica Loehr led the Gators with 15 points.

Despite his team's limited success this past winter, Mervo coach Freddie Hendricks always maintained that the Mustangs' inaugural season of indoor track would pay big dividends down the road.Yesterday, he found out just how big.Facing a talented 13-team field at the 20th Gilman Invitational Relays, Mervo took first place in eight events, setting two meet records en route to a 15-point win."I can see there's a big difference [from last year]," said Hendricks, whose team won its second straight meet title.

A couple days before his team had to face Mervo in the Tip-Off Mixer last month, Lake Clifton coach Charlie Moore said facing Woody Williams, one of his longtime mentors, was like facing "a mirror image."And for the first 15 minutes of their initial meeting of the season, Williams and his Mustangs gave Moore reason for concern, before the Lakers gained control in the second period and cruised to a 90-51 victory.Heading into yesterday's Baltimore City 4A League opener at Mervo, Moore again had reason to worry, because the Mustangs had upset then-No.

Mervo, coached by Dwight Warren and assistant Ron Taylor, looks increasingly like the favorite to win this year's Maryland Scholastic Association B Conference dual-meet crown.The host Mustangs won the weekend's Eastside Tournament with champs in sixth-ranked heavyweight Shawn Brodie (12-1), McAnthony Thompson (130, 13-0), Terry McNair (103, 8-3) and Millard West (119, 9-3).Wednesday, the Mustangs (6-0), coming off last 70-0 shutout of Patterson, visit two-time defending league champ Walbrook, which last week suffered its first loss, 40-33 to St. Mary's.

Western High's girls won their seventh straight Baltimore indoor championship at the 5th Regiment Armory yesterday, and Mervo, having lost last winter, won its sixth city boys title.All Western did, while piling up 195 points, was quadruple the score of its nearest competitor, winning all but one of the 11 events.Western took the title for the seventh time, the same number of times the title has been up for grabs.Mervo was nearly as impressive on the boys' side, gaining revenge for losing to City College last year, the only time it hasn't come out on top in the meet's history.

The rain outside last week forced the Mervo football squads - varsity and JV, all of the nearly 100 players - into the hallway of the school gym, bringing all their teen spirit and the resulting noise with them. It would be enough to drive most coaches to utter distraction, but Mustangs coach John Blake remained true to form, placid and calm, taking it all in stride. Besides, it wouldn't have done Blake any good to complain about all those noisy kids clamoring around. The situation is all of his making.

Only a dropped baton in the Maryland Scholastic Association meet's 800-meter relay prevented Mervo's boys track team from sweeping last year's MSA, regional and 4A state crowns in the 400-, 800- and 1,600-meter relays.Mervo became the first 4A team to win all three sprint relays at the state meet -- the 10th team ever to do that -- earning team titles in the MSA and the regionals.The Mustangs (82 points) were 4A state runners-up behind Quince Orchard (83.5) of Montgomery County, with Old Mill (65 points)

Those who subscribe to the old adage "one man does not a team make" may reconsider after watching Mervo senior James Carter this indoor track season.Carter, the defending state champion in the high hurdles and 300-meter --, has made a believer out of Perry Hall veteran track coach Jerry Martin."
