All-Stars win at Douglas
All-Stars win at Berkeley Springs
All-Stars place 4th at West Norristown and 3rd at Oxford
All-Stars place 2nd at CAWL (Missing Rudy and Mike) and 4th in states
Note: When schools are closed in PG County due to conditions, practices are also cancelled
The CAWL is widely considered the most competitive in the Mid-Atlantic region, definitely a notch above other junior wrestling programs in this area. Our team is the only advanced competition team for young wrestlers in PG County, and also the closest to Calvert County for Southern Maryland wrestlers.
Luke Palumbo -- Mike Rowe
While the focus of the team is for young advanced wrestlers, older wrestlers may practice with us provided they are SMWC members and also have current USAW cards. We welcome coaches from other area programs, as well as open wrestlers who want to have fun while helping some great young talent. Among our outstanding youth wrestlers who competed for the 1997 Team (many of whom are now ranked HS starters) were Rudy Rueda, Kevin Gabrielson, Jonas Bray, Joey and Steve Sargent, Mike Rock, David and Tony Mahan, Ryan Forman, Mike Rowe, and Luke Palumbo.

1998 SMWC All-Stars
Coach Mahan is also one of the owners of The Ultamate Athlete, the wrestling equipment supplier where we purchases all our uniforms and supplies. A wide selection of equipment is available at most practices.
Our practices were held most (but not all) Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights between 6:30 and 8:30 pm.
Tournaments or matches were scheduled every weekend until March.
For more information call Coach Gabrielson at (301) 855-4565 or Coach Jones at (703) 440-0433. We are moving ahead quickly, so the longer you delay, the more you will miss out. Our team is tough as we have non-starters who win tournaments. Please feel free to come by any night to practice or check us out. We don't need to recruit as our record and membership speaks for itself.
