Congratulations to the Whitman wrestling team for winning the Patriot Classic Wrestling Tournament this past weekend at Northern High School in Owings, Maryland. Twenty teams from across Maryland and Virginia participated in this two-day contest, bringing together tough competition that showcased some impressive wrestling. The Whitman grapplers descended on this event in full-force, with a squad so deep and strong that they clinched the team title even before taking the mat in the finals on Saturday night. Taylor Leighton was Whitman’s top performer. As the team’s only individual champion, Taylor pinned his way through every opponent to win the 189-pound title. Ten of Whitman’s other wrestlers also medaled. Winning second place in their weight classes were: Mike Harder (140 lbs), Andrew Follman (145 lbs), Alex Hysong (152 lbs), and Danny Lee (215 lbs); winning third place were: Sawyer Symington (112 lbs), Dylan Symington (119 lbs), Eric Harder (125 lbs), Jordan Tritell (135 lbs), and Ned Daryoush (Heavyweight). Ben Delia took 6th place at 130 lbs. The team is undefeated so far this year with a dual meet record of 4-0. Their next contest will be on Tuesday night (January 12) at Richard Montgomery High School. Come on out and support your Vikes!
The Vikings have had a successful start to their 2010 campaign with dual meet wins over Watkins Mill and Churchill. The Whitman grapplers came away with a 79-0 victory against Watkins Mill. Garnering victories for the Vikes were Juniors Andrew Follmann, Alex Hysong, Ned Daryoush, and Sophomore Brad Taylor. Also winning in his first Varsity match was Senior Thomas Oudinot at 171. Follmann, Hysong, and Daryoush were able to secure falls in each of their matches. The rest of the Viking starting lineup received forfeits. One week later the Vikings took on a talented Churchill Bulldog team. Whitman wrestled well and earned a hard fought 49-16 wins. Earning wins for the Vikes were Seniors Sawyer and Dylan Symington, Jordan Tritell, Taylor Leighton, and Danny Lee. Also winning were Ben D’Elia, Eric Harder, Mike Harder, Andrew Follmann, and Ned Daryoush. Earning pins for the Vikes were Mike Harder, Leighton, Lee, and Daryoush.
Sandwiched in between those two duals was the annual trip up to Derwood for Magruder’s Mad Mats tournament. The Vikings had an impressive run, albeit a bit of a disappointing ending, in the tough 17 team tournament. The Whitman wrestlers each earned at least one win to contribute to a total of 217 team points and a 2nd place finish. Whitman placed nine total wrestlers in the top three of their respective weight class and ten wrestlers in the top five overall. Whitman also advanced six wrestlers to the finals, however only came away with one victory. That lone victory in the finals was an impressive performance by Senior Taylor Leighton with a first period pin. Coming up just short in the finals were Seniors Danny Lee and Sawyer Symington as well as Juniors Andrew Follmann, Mike Harder, and Ned Daryoush. All of the Viking grapplers wrestled admirably all weekend long and each individual contributed to the total team effort.
