The State Championship on Saturday, March 2nd marked the end of the 2018-19 wrestling season. BCC was represented by Eli Guttentag, Drew Guttentag, Jeo Martinez and Christian Simpson, each of whose record and regional placement qualified them to battle against the best 3A/4A wrestlers in the state of Maryland. Drew Guttentag and Jeo Martinez made it to the semi-finals where they suffered their first loss but ensured themselves a spot on the podium. Drew Guttentag would then lose in the consolation semis but come back to win his final match and place fifth. Jeo Martinez won his consolation semifinals and then lost a close one to finish 4th. Eli Guttentag was the only BCC finalist and took on two time state champion Earl Blake from Linganore. Eli kept it close, coming within a takedown in the 3rd period but would ultimately have to settle for a 2nd place finish. Congratulations to Eli Guttentag for closing out his BCC wrestling career with his third trip to the podium and his 159th win.
