This past weekend the B-CC wrestling team traveled to the Eastern Shore to participate in Maryland’s toughest tournament. Twenty-one teams competed at this year’s War on the Shore including top teams from Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey.
NinebB-CC wrestlers competed in the varsity tournament – Christian Simpson, Ike and Drew Guttentag, Aidan Moffitt, Fabio and Jeo Martinez, Evan Wassmann, Noah Bowers and Alhassane Kouyate. Kudos to all the varsity wrestlers who competed in this very challenging event. Ike Guttentag was the sole B-CC wrestler to get to the finals and ultimately placed 2nd. Drew Guttentag placed 5th. Jeo Martinez was injured in his consolation semifinals and had to forfeit his last two matches placing 6th. Fabio Martinez lost in over-time in the blood round falling just short of placing.
The War on the Shore JV tournament is as competitive as many varsity tournaments and our quickly improving newer wrestlers had an excellent showing. Emmanuel Oladapo, Graham Blondes and Nick Scott all were the champions in their respective weight classes. Sam Moffitt and Estefanos Mekene were runner-ups, placing second. Kristian Ladegaard lost a close one in the blood round to just miss placing.
