Joon Kim, Centennial's 189-pound state champion, says he wants to wrestle in college and then the Olympics."I saw Olympic wrestling on television when I was in the eighth grade, and that inspired me to begin wrestling my freshman year," he said.Like most novices, Kim, now a senior, struggled that first year. "I didn't know anything," he said. "It was pretty hard to learn. I had a lot of illegal moves, like locking hands on full nelsons."Making the Olympics may sound like a teen-ager's fantasy, but not many people would have bet three years ago that Kim would become a state champion.

It had long been a dream of South Carroll wrestling fans for the Cavaliers to win a state title. Yesterday the Cavaliers finally did that, though they'll have to share. No. 12 South Carroll used a major decision by Jake Pooton over Fallston's Austin Rutkowski at 182 pounds in its final match to tie Kent Island, 94-94 for the Class 2A/1A state title. Pooton led the match 7-0 late in the third period, but intentionally let Rutkowski up and gave away a point. He then scored a takedown to give South Carroll an 8-point lead and the major decision it needed to tie the match.

COLLEGE PARK - Ben Graham of Annapolis had not won in his previous two attempts in the state wrestling finals. The third time, he became a champion. With a 6-4 overtime victory over Bethesda-Chevy Chase's Eric Jeronimo last night at the Class 4A-3A state wrestling tournament at Cole Field House, Graham (140 pounds) nailed down the title that had previously eluded him. "To win a state title on the final match of my high school career, that feels really good," said Graham (32-2 record)

A regional wrestling dual meet has been postponed for the second time this week due to snow and the threat of more. The Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association announced Friday that the 4A/3A East region dual meet scheduled for Saturday had been moved to Monday at 1 p.m. That's caused the state wrestling dual meet semifinals and finals to be moved to Wednesday. They had already been pushed back to Tuesday at North Point. The meet at River Hill is to feature the No. 6 Hawks, No. 7 Glenelg, No. 10 Old Mill and No. 4 Bel Air. The meet was originally scheduled for last Wednesday, but was postponed because of the impending snowstorm that ultimately dropped more than a foot of snow in some areas.

The list of public school state wrestling champions from the city is short. Very short. When Poly's Dennis Scott won the heavyweight title in 1999, he became the first -- and only -- city public school wrestler to capture a state championship. Matthew Oakley of Poly and DeShawn Barrett of Patterson want to give Scott some company. And so far this season, they've shown they're up to the task. Oakley, a defending city and regional champ at 171 pounds, is 13-0 with 11 pins. Barrett, a 215-pounder, has pinned all 17 rivals in the first period.

Matt Slutzky sure knows what to do for an encore. After winning the county, regional and state wrestling titles in his freshman and sophomore years, Slutzky finished off his junior season by sweeping all three once again. First, he pinned all three of his opponents in the county meet to lead the Eagles to their 13th county championship. He took the regional title by technical fall and won the states with a 17-4 victory. With a 32-1 record, Slutzky kept his Maryland State Wrestling Association No. 1 ranking at 135 pounds all 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.

The 4A-3A and 2A-1A public schools' state wrestling tournaments, held for the final time at McDaniel College last weekend, are being relocated, state association director Ned Sparks said last night. "The 19 years at Western Maryland/McDaniel, and they've been absolutely terrific," Sparks said, "but we've lost parking and so forth, and they want to use the facility. "We can't argue with that. We don't know yet where we're going, but we're looking. We don't have in this state a mid-sized arena that is [central to everyone]
