2010 Maryland 3A/4A Dual Meet Champs
Reservoir scrimmaged Palotti and Spring Brook tonight.
It was great to see so much interest in wrestling tonight. The gym was packed with wrestlers and observers and most of the boys got at least one good match in. Here are a bunch of pictures, but not as many as I had hoped. If you know any of the wrestlers of the other teams let them know to check to see if there are any good shots of them. I would have had a bunch more but my son (Michael) had to leave to get stitches above his eye. He got five stitches and will only be out a week.
Season Gets Underway
The first practices are underway. There are a bunch of new wrestlers on the JV Squad. I took some pictures of the JV group today and I wanted to tell them something. I wanted to tell them that they are future of the program. Hard work now pays off down the road. In the coming years when you become the face of the program you can look back on these photo's and see how far you've come! And as Coach Jessie was saying today you could get called on the step up and help the varsity program at any time. Will you be ready?
Anyway's it was great to see so many returning wrestlers and a bunch of new guys. I think you have a great mix of experience.
There are few Varsity pictures here - but most are of JV.
Thanks for letting me watch some of the practice today and take some pics of you. I don't get as many as I'd like of JV once the season starts.
Good work today. Reminder - Order Spirit Wear Here: https://rhswrestl13.itemorder.com/sale

We are asking that all wrestlers order at least the Orange Hooded Sweatshirt as this will be the warm-up for JV wrestlers this season.
GATORS RAMP UP FOR THE 2013-2014 CAMPAIGN
With three state qualifiers (and 2 state placers among them) and several other regional qualifying returning wrestlers - this could be a special year for our Reservoir Gators.
The Gators have quality returning wrestlers in the light, mid and heavier weights.
Returning wrestlers include (Weights are only guesses);
Tyler Ponton (113), Senior
Troy Kilcarr (126), Junior
Trent Kilcarr (132), Junior
Mason Kilcarr (138), Senior (2nd in States)
Han's Wicklien (145), Senior
Paul Quattrone (152), Senior
AJ Strodt (152-170), Sophomore
Stephen Simms (160-170), Junior
Wes Beattie, (170-182) Senior (State Qualifier)
Michael Sullivan, (195, 220) Senior (5th in States)
Some of last years JV standouts and new wrestlers will no doubt move up and contribute to the varsity squad or provide much needed depth during what can at times be a grueling season. This includes
Dalton Kleinhen (106)
Jeremiah Branch (120 - 132)
John Folea (113-152)
Steven Petrillo (170-182)
Sean Hamilton (195, 220)
Reservoir should compete for one of the top 4 spots in the County. If things fall our way and we stay healthy, Reservoir could make some noise at the regions and state's as well. The Gators should be a very formidable dual team and competitive in tournaments.
Mason Kilcarr, A.J. Strodt, and Michael Sullivan all competed at this years AAU Junior Olympics in Detroit Michigan over the summer. Each had some big wins and serious mat time with quality competition.
For your information purposes there are 14 weight classes and this includes:
THREE RESERVOIR WRESTLERS PLACE AT STATES
All four of the Gators won at least two matches at the state. We were one close match from having all our entrants place at states this year. Mason Kilcarr had a great run and came in second. Sam Rowell and Michael Sullivan both placed fifth in states. Wes Beattie got two wins and lost by decision to two wrestlers who ultimately placed in the 170 lb weight class.
2014 already looks like it will be an exciting year. With four returning state qualifiers and several other wrestlers who came within a victory or two of getting out of the Regions expectations for next year will be high.
If your wrestler is interested in keeping it going in the off season, please contact Coach Rowell or me and we'll be happy to share our knowledge of the MANY off season wrestling opportunities available nearby.
