DOVER -- Delmar, Seaford and Sussex Tech advanced two wrestlers apiece into today's semifinals of the Delaware Secondary School Athletic Association state tournament with quarterfinal victories on Friday, Feb. 25, 2000.

Delmar's Nathan ShearerReaching the 11 a.m. semis at Delaware State University were Nathan Shearer (152) and Luke Blanchfield (160) of Delmar, Cameron Fitzgerald (125) and Kyle Shedaker (145) of Seaford, and Jimmy Hudson (189) and Brandon Morrow (Hwt.) of Sussex Tech.

Also advancing to the semis were Henlopen champions Quinn Revel (112) of Indian River, Corey Strohmeyer (130) of Sussex Central, and Adam Ralph (135) of Laurel.

Knocked out of a state title possibility was Sussex Central's Teddy Thompson, the defending state champion at 145. Thompson was pinned by Rispolli of Division II state dual meet champion Hodgson in 2:15 in the 145 quarterfinals.

Shearer, a transfer from nationally ranked Connellsville High School (Pa.), was named the outstanding wrestler in last weekend's Henlopen Conference tournament and picked up right where he left off there in the state meet Friday.

First, he flattened John Brayman of Newark in 44 seconds in the preliminary round and then he decisioned Rob Mingola of Glasgow in the semifinals. Now 31-0, the 18-year-old junior is, along with Blanchfield, trying to become the first Delmar state champion since Randy Brown in 1987.

Blanchfield reached the semifinals with an 11-2 major decision over Nick Papademetriou of Mt. Pleasant in the quarterfinals. He scored a technical fall over Glasgow's Jerry Hackett in 4:14 in the preliminaries.

Seaford's Shedaker had beaten Central's Thompson during the regular season but lost to him in the Henlopen Conference tournament. On Friday, he decisioned Newark's Jeff Hudson 6-4 in overtime in the preliminaries and then reached the semifinals with a technical fall over Tower Hill's Jason Oren in 4:00 in the quarters.

Fitzgerald, meanwhile, registered two pins, nailing Brandywine's Martin Rivera in 3:28 in the quarterfinals and Mt. Pleasant's Andy Rawley in 42 seconds in the preliminaries.

Hudson and Morrow also breezed into the semis. Hudson pinned Middletown's Mark Hitchens in 1:51 in the preliminaries and registered a major decision, 15-3, over William Penn's Willie Singleton in the quarters. Morrow pinned William Penn's Luke Fresconi in 1:57 in the quarters and A.I. DuPont's Will Bradley in 2:47 in the preliminaries.

Revel, just a sophomore, made a big impression in his first state tournament. He major decisioned Adam Edinburgh of Mt. Pleasant 16-6 in the preliminaries and flattened Justin Martin of Concord in 3:30 in the quarterfinals.

Strohmeyer decisioned Glasgow's Pete Lazzapina 11-8 in the quarters after pinning Middletowns' Jake Spence in 2:47 in the preliminaries. And Ralph scored two decisions, 5-1 over Brandywine's Jason Scott in the quarters and Glasgow's Justin Parag 4-2 in the preliminaries.

Action continues today with the semifinals at 11 a.m. and the championship finals at 7:45 p.m. Consolation rounds run from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Fifth place matches start at 6 p.m. an third place matches at 6:30 p.m.
