A parent's complaint has sparked an investigation into incidents of alleged hazing among members of the Bel Air High School wrestling team. The investigation began Friday, centering on a complaint that a freshman wrestler was sexually assaulted by an older member of the team. John W. Harkins, deputy chief of the Bel Air Police Department, said investigators have determined the incident was part of a long-standing team tradition involving "horseplay." He said police conducted 48 interviews - including with team members, parents and coaches - and found "more than a couple" of wrestlers who said they were victimized.

Alex Ha, the Marriotts Ridge wrestling team's 160-pound senior captain, has come a long way in a short time since he picked up the sport when he first came to the school as a sophomore. He was admittedly overmatched that first season, the first year for the school and program, but he proved to be a quick study. After winning just one varsity match as a sophomore, he came back last year to qualify for the regional tournament. This season, his goal is to qualify for the state tournament. He is off to a good start, with a 10-4 record despite missing some early action because of a shoulder injury.

Gabriella Denu wrapped her arms around a 114-pound opponent's waist, lifted him onto his tiptoes and threw him to the floor. Then she flipped a 121-pound foe over her shoulder. After she crashed the wrestler onto the mat, the 5-foot, 106-pound Gabriella plopped down and pinned him. Just as quickly as she handled teammates during the recent practice session, the freshman has subdued skepticism about a girl being on John Carroll School's junior varsity wrestling team. "At first I was worried about whether or not the boys would accept me as a part of the team, but it did not take much to prove myself," she said.
