McDonald wrestles S way to victory at rglma tournament GOtF - By John McDonald The Peninsula Wrestling'Al- liance of Virginia held its state tournament the weekend of March 24-26. The touranament is an open event which allows out-of- state competitors. It is a rare situa- tion, as most states prefer their champion to be a resident. Of course, this is in the tradition of the state which was first in pro- moting equal opportunity for all, way back in 1776. Local wrestler Connor McDon- aldhad won this event in 1998 and 1999. This year he decided to enter two age brackets, il-12 and 13-14. Connor, who turned 11 in November, won his first two matches by pins after running up scores of 15-4 and 15-0. He won the l 1-12 division by defeating Marty Carlson of Ashland Park, Va. 15-0. In a strange twist, Carl- son, who had also opted to wrestle in two divisions, was McDonald's opponent in the championship round of the 13-14 age group. McDonald made fast work of this final match with a pin 46 sec- onds into the first period. Other members of the Rehoboth Wrestling Club took this weekend off in order to attend local base- ball tryouts or to regroup after a long campaign. The Rehoboth Wrestling Club is sending 15 boys to the regional tournament April 8-9 in the Salis- bury Civic Center. If you have never seen youth wrestling, this would be a great place to start. The club has been very successful in sending area youth to regional and national events. Jenna Pavlik, who has won a silver medal at a world event in Poland, started with Re- hoboth Wrestling Club. Unlike some sports, wrestling gets no .funding without earning or begging. Today, I am doing a little begging. Several of our chil- dren could use a little help to at- tend the Tournament of Champi- ons in Columbus, Ohio, April 29. If you are able, please send a big fat check made out to the Re- hoboth Wrestling Club. Small skinny checks will also be grate- fully accepted at 326 Chesterfield Road, Lewes, DE 19958.
