Milford Puts 5, SC
and IR 4 in Semifinals
Make Your Henlopen Wrestling Predictions

The Sussex Central High School football team's success is having an impact on the Golden Knight wrestling program, but wrestling coach Phil Shultie can live with that for now.

The Golden Knights advanced only four wrestlers into the semifinals of the annual Milford Invitational, a preview of how the Henlopen Conference season could go.

But the Knights, a qualifier in last season's dual meet state championships, are still without 189-pounder Jake Booth and 135-pounder Teddy Thompson, both of whom played for the Golden Knight football team in the state championship game last weekend.

"When we get some of the football players back, we'll be alright," said Shultie after the quarterfinals on Friday, Dec. 8, 2000.

Milford led Sussex County teams with five wrestlers in today's 11 a.m. semifinals. Indian River continued its progress under coach Kurt Howell, a four-time state champion as a high school wrestler, by placing four wrestlers in the semifinals.

Sussex Tech and Seaford advanced three and two wrestlers, respectively, into the semis.

The tournament resumes Saturday with the quarterfinal consolations at 10 a.m., the semifinals at 11 a.m., and the championship finals at 7 p.m. in the Milford High School gymnasium.

Caesar Rodney showed it will be the favorite to win the Henlopen Conference championship again as it moved 10 wrestlers into the semifinals.
