The taste is prime, even if the glasses are small. Wrestlers brag about it whenever they return to their home states. "That's what everyone's told me," Grindle said. A graduated senior from Perry Hall, Grindle said he plans of see what all the fuss is about over the next week.

Bowling Brook Thoroughbreds1998-99 record: 2-8Coach: Jim TavennerTop wrestler: Mike Price, Sr., hwt.Outlook: At first glance, the likelihood of the Thoroughbreds' winning their fourth state private schools B Division title in six years appears distant. Tavenner doesn't have a wrestler in six weight classes from 103 to 130 pounds and at 140, and 31 of the squad's 32 wrestlers have never performed on the varsity level. But the lone returner is Price, who went 24-5 last season and placed fifth in the state individual tournament to earn all-county honors.

As a youngster, Bryan McDermott played on travel teams in baseball, basketball and lacrosse. So his father, Patrick, never expected Bryan to wrestle when he entered Mount St. Joseph four years ago."One day, he comes home and says, `Dad, I just want to wrestle,'" said the elder McDermott."I'll take credit for that," said Gaels athletic director Tony Brockmeyer, who spotted "this tough kid" [Bryan] in a freshman physical-education wrestling class.Three years later, McDermott's wrestling skill has earned him a partial scholarship to Duquesne University.
