220 Kyle Snyder
Good Counsel / So.
Never taken down in his high school career, no area wrestler has been more dominant over the past two seasons. The 220-pounder won all 61 of his matches this winter to improve his career record to 116-0. He began the season by winning the Walsh Ironman and Beast of the East tournaments and later added his second WCAC and MIS state titles. The repeat All-Met finished the season ranked No. 1 in the nation after a dominating performance at the National Prep tournament that included two pins, two technical falls and a 17-4 major decision in the final.
126 Nathan Kraisser
Centennial / Sr.
A relentless tactician on the mat, the 126-pounder put together one of the finest careers the area has ever seen. With a 14-4 major decision over South River’s Collin Alley on March 3, he became the fifth Maryland public school wrestler — and first from the Washington area — to win four state titles. The four-time All-Met went 36-3 this season with his only losses coming to nationally ranked wrestlers at the Walsh Ironman tournament. He finished his career at 152-6 with bonus-point victories in all 16 state tournament matches. He will wrestle at North Carolina. Video
