(Jan. 19, 2018) Despite not having their best performance, the Stephen Decatur wrestlers still earned a 63-13 victory over the North Dorchester Eagles on Wednesday in Hurlock, Maryland.

“We looked very flat. No urgency,” Decatur Coach Todd Martinek said. “Hopefully we are just a little sluggish after the weekend [from competing in the War on the Shore tournament]. We have a lot of work to do if we want to be Bayside or region champs.”

Freshman John Hofman (160), sophomore Shamar Baines (106), junior co-captain Lukas Layton (170) and seniors David Braciszewski (145) and co-captain Justin Manganiello (195) pinned their opponents. Senior captain Cade Solito outscored his 126-pound opponent 4-3.

North Dorchester forfeited matches to co-captains Jagger Clapsadle (113), a sophomore, and seniors Jeremy Danner (132) and Caleb Bourne (220), as well as to sophomore Keegan Mitchell (120) and senior Shakur Nock (285).

Decatur will host the Kent Island Buccaneers today, Friday, at 5 p.m.

All wrestling alumni are invited to attend and a group photo will be taken following the meet. Decatur is also celebrating the 2008 state dual championship team. There will be a reception after at The Globe in Berlin.
