Boys' Latin's Jason Leneau expected a tough rematch with Overlea's 1A-2A state champion Terry Lawson in last night's 16th annual Senior All-Star Wrestling Classic at Johns Hopkins. However, he didn't expect nearly to be pinned by a guy bent on avenging an earlier two-point loss.Lawson led, 7-0, and nearly flattened the two-time private schools state champ. But Leneau, also a two-time National Preps runner-up, nearly pinned Lawson during a seven-point second period, and his third-period escape and takedown secured a 10-8 comeback win in a highlight match at 171 pounds.

Notre Dame Prep did not win a single event at Saturday's Catholic League Swimming Championships, but that didn't stop the Pirates from taking the team title.NDP, which finished in a three-way tie with McDonogh and Severn for the regular season championship, out-distanced Severn, 379.5-327 for the title in the third annual event at UMBC. McDonogh was third with 315 points.Depth provided the winning edge for the Pirates, who had only three second-place finishes and two thirds. The points piled up quickly, however, because all but four NDP swimmers made their way into the finals.

Among the five champions who helped No. 6 Archbishop Curley defeat host and No. 10 Aberdeen, 170-to-141.5, in the Harford County school's 10th annual, eight-team event yesterday, sophomore Brian Bricker has the least experience.Bricker, who competes in no other sports, is up from the JV, where he went 12-5 in his first season of organized wrestling. Yesterday, however, the 103-pounder (17-0) remained his team's only unbeaten wrestler.
