Henlopen Wrestling Tournament ...

Laurel Puts 7, Milford
and SC 6 in Mat Semis

After a week of missed school and postponements, the 2003 Henlopen Conference wrestling tournament finally got underway on Saturday, Feb. 22, at Seaford High School.

As expected, conference dual meet champion Caesar Rodney led the parade into Sunday morning's semifinals with 12 wrestlers advancing.

Sussex County schools, however, will be represented when the semis begin at 10:30 a.m.

Henlopen Conference Southern Division champion Laurel advanced seven wrestlers into the semis, while Milford and Sussex Central have moved six wrestlers each.

All of the tournament's top seeds advanced to the semifinals, but there were some surprises, including 3-2 upset by Milford's David Marvel over third-seeded Josh McGregor of CR in the 145-pound quarterfinal.

Among the top seeds to advance were Seaford's Grant Grey, the returning conference champion at 152. Grey moved into the semis with a technical fall over Sussex Tech's Brian Carlson. Grey will meet CR's Dan Rigby in the semis. Grey decisioned Rigby in overtime during the regular season.

Laurel was led by Will Saylor, the two-time defending 119-pound champion. Saylor will be in the 125 semifinals today.

Sussex Central's Richard Dondarski, the tournament's 125-pound champion last year, reached the 130 semis.

In the team standings, CR, which was upset in the tournament by Sussex Central last year, leads this year's tourney with 116.5 points. Smyrna is second with 98, Laurel third with 79.5, and Central fourth with 58.

Sunday's evening session begins at 4:30 p.m. with the fifth- and third-place matches. The championship finals are scheduled for approximately 6 p.m.
