Broadneck, 132 pounds, sophomore
As a freshman last season, Harrell's confidence led him to a 36-2 record and a 4A-3A state championship at 120 pounds. This year, his mental toughness will face new tests as the Bruins wrestler moves up to 132 pounds.
Archbishop Curley, 126 pounds, junior
At 113 pounds, Huntley enjoyed a super sophomore season as he swept the MIAA, MIS and National Preps championships. He can control the tempo of matches and dominate opponents, which was demonstrated by his 40-3 record last year.
River Hill, 195 pounds, junior
Kirby earned respect last year with a runner-up finish in the 4A-3A state tournament at 195 pounds. With strong work ethic and commitment, the Hawks wrestler is looking to finish one spot better this season.
Mount St. Joseph, 126 pounds, junior
Exhibiting excellent skills and a strong mat awareness at Perry Hall, Salvo went 36-2 and earned the 4A-3A state title at 106 pounds. After transferring to Mount St. Joseph, he'll look to move up three weight classes and find similar success against private-school competition.
