The Battle-By-The-Bay


On Saturday January 19, there was a major battle held at St Michaels High School.  The school gymnasium was the site of the 9th annual Battle-By-The-Bay wrestling tournament.  Fourteen High Schools from all over the state participated in the two day wrestling extravaganza.  There are 14 weight classes and 14 schools participating, which explains the two day event.

The St Michaels Saints had three of their wrestlers win medals.  Kevin Parker took 4th place in the 152 bracket, Robbie Dorton also took 4th place in the 182 bracket and Tyrae Wilson took 5th place in the 285 (Heavy Weight) bracket.

Good Counsel won the team portion with a total of 632 ½ points. Winters Mill placed second with 547 points, Bel Air placed third with 344 points, Southern Anne Arundel placed fourth with 310 points, Wicomico placed fifth with 308 points, Snow Hill placed sixth with 296 points, Cambridge South Dorchester placed seventh with 252 points, Easton placed eighth with 221 points, St Vincent Pallotti placed ninth with 214 ½ points and North Dorchester placed tenth with 207 points.

DelMar, Glenleg Country, Col Richardson and the Saints did not score enough points to make it in the top 10.

Good Counsel High School placed first in 10 of the 14 weight classes. Winters Mill placed first in three of the weight classes and Bel Air took first place in the 182 match.

The fastest pin trophy went to Hutton from Good Counsel with a 7 second pin over his opponent.

The outstanding lite weight trophy went to Wes Cook from Winters Mill.

The outstanding Heavy Weight trophy went to Kyle Snyder from Good Counsel.

Kyle Snyder following the tournament had a personal record of 150 and 0.  Kyle is a junior at Good Counsel, and verbally agreed to attend Ohio State following his senior year.  Rumor has it that he is rated #1 and/or # 2 in the country, depending upon which rating sheet you choose.
