Runners-up face the third seed from another region in the first round.Four-time state champ Old Mill, which has qualified a 4A-3A high 10 wrestlers, has helped keep the title in Anne Arundel County since 1988, when it was a runner-up to Broadneck.

Hammond's wrestling team has made strides every season " under third-year coach Bill Smith. Last season, the Bears enjoyed a 13-1 season, which included a 7-0 mark against the county and a rare victory over Oakland Mills. It was Scorpions coach Dan Ricker's only dual-meet loss in four seasons. The Bears followed that by finishing second in the county and regional tournaments. If the Bears are going to take it one step farther -- say, by going undefeated and winning the county tournament, -- they should do it this season.

* Pat Brennan, Hammond, 189, Sr. -- Brennan, who had trouble realizing his potential early in his Hammond career, came around in a big way for the Bears last winter. He went 26-10-1 and won a regional championship. He'll have a tough time overtaking Casella, but Brennan will score often for Hammond.* Nate Casella, Wilde Lake, 189, Sr. -- Casella appears on the verge of winning his first state title. He is the leader of a team that could slip past Hammond and Oakland Mills and win the county tournament.

Hammond wrestling coach Bill Smith sensed an unusual feeling in the locker room before last night's match against rival Oakland Mills."I've never seen a Hammond team with that air of confidence before," Smith said.Maybe it was the knowledge that Oakland Mills, the perennial county champion, is suffering with one of its younger, more inexperienced teams. Maybe the Golden Bears were feeling strong after a lopsided, tri-meet victory last weekend over Liberty and Chopticon.Whatever the reason, Hammond looked crisp and confident, as it took control in the middle of the match, pinned five Scorpions and rolled to a 39-23 victory.
