Bobcats win sixth straight conference tournament title, crown four champs; C. Milton Wright places second; Rising Sun’s Filliaux becomes a four-time champ


by Billy Loverocket

The Bel Air wrestling team (No.14 in the latest Maryland rankings by BillyB’s Wrestling World) did what was expected of them this weekend at the UCBAC tournament at Edgewood High School capturing their sixth consecutive title.

“(I’m) just really proud of how our team performed and has responded to the push from CM Wright,” Bel Air coach Craig Reddish said. “There is a different type of pressure when you are expected to win. It sometimes tightens you up and you don’t perform at your best. This year’s class has won four straight titles and 113 Dual meets. They are a real tight knit group. Its a real team effort. We had a starter out and placed 12 of the 13 wrestlers on the top six.”

The Bobcats put seven wrestlers in the finals and walked away with four champions, No. 24 Ethan Vogel (106), No. 3 Brent Lorin (113), No. 15 Sincere Montgomery (126), and Dave Abboud (152).

Vogel, a senior, took out upstart freshman, Chase Rondone of Perryville, 5-1. Lorin downed No. 11 Constantinos Gourgoulianis (C. Milton Wright), 17-5, to rack up his third career conference crown.

Montgomery pinned Juan Ortega (C. Milton Wright), 3:29, and Abboud picked up a fall of his own, 1:27, over Kelvin Mendez (Harford Tech).

Placing second for Bel Air were Jacob Reed (138), Noah Beyers (182) and Jarritt Stencil (195). Grant Cole was third at 145. Troy Dureza (120) and Jack Brink (220) were fourth. Landing in sixth were Evan Cole (160) and Damanveer Aluhka (285).

C. Milton Wright’s second place finish was the result of notching five finalists and tallying two champions, No. 2 James Riveira (120) an No. 7 Teddy Stinson (182).

Riveira, a sophomore who won a 4A/3A state title as a freshman, earned his second conference crown by pinning Perryville’s Jeffrey Leonard at the 2:48 mark of the second period. Stinson defeated Bel Air’s Beyers for the fourth time this year, 10-4.

In addition to Gourgoulianis and Ortega, Sawyer Sturla captured a silver for the Mustangs. Jake Blanchard (138) and Logan Dvorak (160) brought home bronze. Demetrios Goirgoulianis (106) and Carter Goscinski (132) made it to the fourth spot of the podium. Andrew Van Syckle (152) and Trey Lindesy (195) were sixth.

Patterson Mill was third with no champions. Havre de Grace’s fourth place showing was energized by two champs, Michael Sweigart (160) and No. 20 Jesse Fenner (285).

Sweigart pinned Harford Tech’s Jonathan Fletcher, 2:55, and Fenner pulled off a huge upset of No. 5 Sturla, 4-0. Fenner also picked off No. 10 Daviyon Johnson (Edgewood), 1-0, in the semifinals.

Rising Sun’s Silas Filliaux flashes four fingers as he stands at the UCBAC Tournament podium for a fourth consecutive year as a champion.

Rising Sun crowned two champions, Mason Craig (138) and No. 7 Silas Filliaux (145). Craig won his title with a 9-7 victory over Brian Wheatley (Patterson Mill). Filliaux joined the four-time champ club with a 5-3 win over No. 23 Gavin Lloyd (Havre de Grace).

North Harford’s No. 10 Josh Mitchell used an 8-3 decision over Bel Air’s No. 16 Reed to secure his second UCBAC crown. No. 14 Christian Wilson (Fallston) flattened Havre de Grace’s Ben Long in the 170lb championship bout.

At 195, Legend Price was crowned North East’s lone champion, edging Bel Air’s Stencil, 9-8. No. 18 Chris Kalambihis (Joppatowne) made his way to the top of the podium at 220lbs with an 8-2 win over No. 25 Keishawn Torres (Havre de Grace).
