Springbrook takes second at its tourney
With its head coach and co-captain absent from competition, the Springbrook High School wrestling team turned in a strong performance Saturday at the 14th annual Grapple at the 'Brook tournament.
The host Blue Devils crowned two individual champions and two runner-ups en route to a second place team finish with 170 points. Delaware's Cape Henlopen won the overall title with five weight class victors and six other grapplers placing in the top six. Reservoir (159 points, Howard County), Fallston (153.5, Harford) and Paint Branch, who had no individuals reach the championship finals, rounded out the top five.
Springbrook coach Rob Wendel missed the tournament to attend to a family emergency, according to assistant coaches, and regular 182-pounder Eddie Hernandez was out due to a knee injury.
The short-handed Blue Devils were Montgomery County's best and sent four wrestlers into the championship round. Kevin Cristobal and John Holland came away victors at 106 and 195 pounds, respectively. Cristobal easily defeated Reservoir's Joe Quattrone by major decision, 13-1, and Holland earned an escape early in the third period to hold on to defeat Reservoir's Michael Sullivan, 6-5.
“It's pretty cool to say you won your weight class at your own tournament on your home mat,” said Cristobal, whose team has never won the tournament as hosts. “You never expect to beat a kid by that much in a final match, but I wrestled real well this weekend. I mean, we all are having a great year.”
J.P Nguyen (126) and Aaron Perez (170) finished second. Springbrook also had a grappler place fourth and fifth and four others took sixth place.
Reservoir's 132-pounder Zach Cullison was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Wrestler. He recorded two first period falls and a technical fall en route to gold.
Poolesville standout Robert Winning's last name is rather appropriate for the 160-pounder. He earned three pins and secured a 3-0 decision over Cape Helopen's Tadeo Gonzalez in the championship match over the weekend to win his weight class and improve his season record to 23-1.
“The name is a lot to live up to,” Winning said with a grin. “The guys give me a hard time about it sometimes. One of my goals this year was to go undefeated, but I obviously can't do that anymore since I slipped up in the Damascus Tournament. Winning this was good.”
Teammate Will Korzeniewski also won the 126-pound weight class and the Falcons placed seventh overall as a team with 127 points.
Just the same
Walt Whitman heavyweight Josh Daryoush is following in his brother's footsteps. His older brother, Ned, also wrestled at heavyweight for the Vikings and was a state qualifier before graduating last year.
The younger Daryoush suffered his first loss of the season to Cape Henlopen's Thomas Ott, 5-2, in the championship bout.
“I like knowing the Daryoush name is kind of a heavyweight institution for the past few years at Whitman,” Josh said. “I've been having a good season, but it wasn't fun losing today.”
Brad Taylor defeated Perez, 3-2, to win his weight class and lead the Vikings to an eighth place finish.
Other county notables
Paint Branch and Northwest did not have any individual champions, but their depth was on display. Eight Panthers placed between third and sixth. The Jaguars placed sixth overall and had seven grapplers finish second, third, fourth or fifth.
Clarksburg's Eddie Kennedy (113) and Ryan Smith (152) each placed second to pace the Coyotes' ninth place finish. Sherwood's Tommy Kyttle was runner-up at 132 and teammate Chris Minor (120) took third.
Gaithersburg's Daniel Moore defeated Springbrook's Vincent Galeano, 11-6, in the 145-pound consolation firstname.lastname@example.org
