The 33rd SnOverlea Invitational unfolded at Overlea High School this weekend and Oakland Mills took the top honors with 229 points. Oakdale followed with 154 and Woodlawn was third with 152.5 points.
Four champions and ten total placers powered the Scorpions title run. Earning supremacy at their weights were, Alex Tamai (106), Jalen Cornelius (120), Quan Dunscomb (132) and No. 20 Anthony Morales (160). Morales upset Overlea’s No. 10 Jarius Cannon, 10-8. Cannon was fifth at the 2A/1A state tournament last March.
Coming up short in their title quests for Oakland Mills were, Steve Harrell (145), Dylan Watt (152) and Aaron Smith (285). Isaiah Williams was third at 126, while Stone Richardson (182) and Arthur Mouafo (220) were fifth.
Oakdale’s lone champion was No. 10 Ramy Freeman, who rang up a major-decision of Oakland Mills’ Harrell at 145.
Woodlawn managed to put two wrestlers at the top of their brackets, No. 21 Joel Turner-Rodgers (152) and Justin Briscoe (182).
Some may not remember, but Turner-Rodgers started his wrestling career as a freshman at Mount St. Joseph with no previous experience. That year ended with Turner-Rodgers placing sixth at the private school state tournament.
The Warrior was a county and region runner-up last year, his pin of No. 16 Watt in the finals, 3:58, is a good indicator that even better things are on the horizon for the senior, perhaps even a return to the state podium.
Western Tech’s Ike Kalu (No. 2) was involved in one of the marquee bouts of the final round at 220. The senior state runner-up faced off with Calvert Hall’s No. 6 Jarrell Mayo and planted the Cardinal at the 3:24 mark of the second period. Kalu’s efforts helped pace the Wolverine’s fourth place finish.
The host Falcons were fifth with two champs, Marcus Chase (113) and Jerome Vonziah (126).
170 featured a barnburner with No.13 Demonte Wright (Edmondson) edging No.11 Christian Wilson (Fallston), 3-2, for the gold.
Another tight battle occurred at heavyweight when No. 21 Demetrius Daniels (Parkville) upset No. 12 Aaron Smith, 8-6, to capture his crown. An all-star matchup took place at 195 as well, No. 7 Mervyn Crawford (Poly) took care of business compiling a 10-5 win over Woodlawn’s Antonio DeShields (No. 14).
Milford Mill’s Jabias Barr was awarded the 138lb title after No. 6 Wyatt McKoy defaulted due to injury in the finals. Barr won the Outstanding Lightweight award and Turner-Rodgers was given the Upperweight honors.
