Won his third Maryland 4A/3A championship and finished his career on an 86-match winning streak. Lowy finished the season 40-0, using a style known as "funk." Will wrestle at Princeton.

Coach of the Year

Todd Sharp
La Plata
In his seventh season, Sharp led the Warriors to their second consecutive Maryland 4A/3A dual team championship and a second-place finish in the state tournament behind Old Mill.

Robinson, Fr.  |  103 Col. Forge, So.  |  112 Col. Forge, So.  |  119 Old Mill, Sr.  |  125 Northern, Sr.  |  135
Highly touted throughout his youth league career, Perryman didn't disappoint in his first varsity season. He won Patriot District, Northern Region and Virginia AAA tournament titles and finished 48-7. An integral part of Colonial Forge's first Virginia AAA team title, Gentry claimed his second straight Commonwealth District and Northwestern Region titles, and placed third at the state tournament. One of the nation's top sophomores, he finished second at the Virginia AAA state tournament after winning the 112-pound title last season. Garofalo won Commonwealth District and Northwestern Region titles. A two-time All-Met, Saumenig won his second Maryland 4A/3A title with a 6-5 overtime win over previously undefeated Sean McCarty of Northwest. Saumenig finished his season 39-3 and helped Old Mill to the state team title. A master technician, Leadbeter won his second straight Maryland 4A/3A tournament title to finish his season at 35-0. The quiet Leadbeter was integral in Northern's 12-2 regular season duals record.

Northeast, Jr.  |  140 Westfield, Sr.  |  145 Annapolis, Jr.  |  152 Brooke Point, Sr.  |  160 Lackey, Sr.  |  171
Flemming became one of the few wrestlers to win a state private school title, which he accomplished as a freshman at Gilman, and a public school championship, which he captured this year in the Maryland 4A/3A tournament. Flemming finished the season 40-0. The three-time Virginia AAA Concorde District champion claimed the first state title in school history. Grinups stands as Westfield's career leader in wins (157) and takedowns (426). He finished the season 44-11. Will wrestle for Virginia Tech. After winning his second Maryland 4A/3A title, Graham cements himself as one of next season's top returning wrestlers. Graham beat Broadneck's Abe Hunter in the Anne Arundel County, region and state finals to finish 32-0. Finished third at the Virginia AAA tournament after capturing the Commonwealth District and Northwestern Region titles. Hunt finished the season 48-2, with 38 of his wins by either pin or technical fall. After placing second in 2006, Jones won his first Maryland 4A/3A title by 10 points in the final, capping off a 35-0 season and showing he was one of the most talented wrestlers in the area.

Matt Jones Curtis Moore Matt Reck Zach Brown Josh Wine
Robinson, Sr.  |  171 Gar-Field, Sr.  |  189 Col. Forge, Sr.  |  215 Wilde Lake, Sr.  |  215 Massaponax, Sr. | Hvy.
The repeat All-Met closed out his career as one of the school's most decorated wrestlers. He won four straight district titles, four straight Northern Region titles and two straight Virginia AAA state titles. Owns a career record of 186-21 with 120 pins. One of the area's most improved wrestlers, Moore finished second at the Virginia AAA tournament after not placing last season. His 56-2 record set the school's single-season victory mark. The most consistent wrestler on The Post's top-ranked team, Reck captured his first Virginia AAA title. The Northwestern Region champion finished the season 49-3 and did not lose to an area opponent. After rolling to his first Maryland 4A/3A championship to cap a football-shortened 25-0 season, Brown proved he was one of the state's most dominant wrestlers by pinning the Maryland 2A/1A champion then tech-falling the MIAA and National Prep champion Jake Bohn, of Mount St. Joseph. The two-time Virginia AAA Northwestern Region champion capped off a 46-0 season with his first state title. A three-time state place winner, Wine amassed a 105-9 career record. He will wrestle and play football for VMI.
