IJAMSVILLE, Md. - Walkersville's Danny Caywood might need some shoe repair before next weekend's Class 1A/2A West Region tournament.

The sophomore had one of his wrestling shoes fall apart during his championship match Saturday but he still mananged a technical fall against Middletown's Ben Saylor to win the 125-pound weight class and lead Walkersville to its second straight Frederick County Tournament title.

The Lions finished with 229.5 points, ahead of second-place and host Urbana, which had 211.5.

"I know what didn't work tonight was my shoes," said Caywood, who won his second county title. "I was wrestling with just a sock and I had no traction. That throws you off your rhythm. Everyone goes through trials and tribulations."

Caywood led 7-2 after the first period and scored the technical fall with 31 seconds left in the second period.

Walkersville's other champions were Chad Cotterman (119), Danny Crum (135) and Mike Smith (140).

Middletown finished third with 172 points. Of the Knights' three finalists, only senior Ryan McQuillen (152) could capture a title.

McQuillen, who missed three weeks of action because of an injury, defeated Walkersville's Zach McLain 18-6 for his second county title.

"I had to hit my takedowns from neutral because I have a knee injury," McQuillen said. "I had seen him in other tournaments, so I had a lot of confidence."

Mark Esmont (171) won Thomas Johnon's only titlewinner and Derek Fogle (189) won Catoctin's lone championship on Saturday.
