8 county wrestlers reach Hub Cup finals

January 08, 2011|By ANDREW MASON |

HAGERSTOWN — Eight Washington County wrestlers won their semifinal bouts this morning at North Hagerstown's 24th annual Hub Cup to advance to this evening's championship finals, which begin at 6:30 p.m.

Williamsport, which led the 18-team field with 148.5 points at the conclusion of the semis, has four finalists — Bobby Ardinger (135 pounds), Kemper Baker (140), Zach Shoemaker (152) and Reggie Russ (171).

Two-time defending champ Waynesboro, which has five finalists, was in second place with 135 points.

Other Washington County finalists include North Hagerstown's Brendon Colbert (112), Saint James' Hal Smith (171) and South Hagerstown's Marquil Holt (215) and Aaron Rowland (285).

Rowland also will win the heavyweight title because, in an oddity, Annapolis' Joe Asselin and Mountain Ridge's Shane Phillips both were disqualified for stalling at the same time in the other semifinal bout.


"I'd rather he wrestled for it," said Donnie Rowland, Aaron's coach and father. "But a win's a win, right? He wrestled hard to make that final."
