2017 CARROLL COUNTY
WRESTLING TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONS
SOUTH CARROLL CAVALIERS

South Carroll’s seven champions powered them to their third consecutive county tournament title on Saturday at Westminster High School. The seven champions, and eight finalists were a tournament high.

“Anytime you can put eight in the finals and walk out of there with seven champions it’s a great weekend,” said South Carroll coach Bryan Hamper. “Our kids are starting to peak at the right time and believe they can win state titles. This is the first step in that process. Individually, our top wrestlers came up big with not only titles, but bonus points the whole time. We had three pins, and two tech-falls in the finals which are crucial bonus points at tournament time.”

Winning titles for the Cavaliers were, Jagger Clapsadle (106), Dakota Bowers (113), Travis Crawford (120), Joey Thomas (126), Tyler Harbison (138), Jake Mackenzie (152), and Jamar Williams (170).

Thomas became a four-time Carroll County champ, and Williams won his third crown. Mackenzie won his second straight championship with an 8-4 victory over Liberty’s Jake Griffin. Harbison won his first with a 6-3 decision of Westminster’s Brad Walsh.

Placing second for South Carroll was Cam Werner (132). Steven Dahl (145) was third.

Winters Mill was second and crowned one champion, Troy Blessing (145). Blessing upset Westminster’s Tyler Watkins, 10-0.

Westminster was able to crown two champions in, Garrett Vandervalk (182) and Jamie Rodriguez (285). Rodriguez win his second county title, both over Century’s Sam Rothstein.

Manchester Valley’s Zach McAleer won the 132lb title by pinning South Carroll’s Werner in a battle of state-placers.

Brett Rinehart (Francis Scott Key) won the 195lb title, and Century’s Jack Akers captured the 220lb crown.
