When the Arundel High wrestling team was concluding practice one day last week with simulated matches, Greg Booth challenged Sean Quigley.In the simulated matches, team members face each other and think they are down by one point with 10 seconds remaining. In about three seconds, Booth tossed his teammate to the mat, resulting in less practice time for himself. Quigley just shook his head in disbelief.The senior is doing the same thing to the competition -- dominating. Booth's career mark is 75-23, and the Arundel co-captain, ranked No. 3 by the Maryland State Wrestling Association, has a chance to post the most wins for a Wildcats wrestler since 1971, when Buddy Hepfer became the school's head coach.
