Chris Knox, Calvert Hall's National Preps champ at 112 pounds, ran his career total of wins to 118 last night in the 16th annual Senior All-Star Classic at River Hill HS.

Knox used four near-fall points to overcome a 5-4 third-period deficit in a 10-5 win over Meade's state champ Matt Pandullo, then won by technical fall over North Caroline's John Rhodes, 20-5.

Knox was among several gold medalists in last night's triangular meet featuring the highest placing seniors from the private school and public school Class 1A-2A and Class 3A-4A state tournaments.

Curley's state champ Paul Boettcher (152) was an 8-4 winner over Northern-Garrett's Nick Dolan and pinned Annapolis' Andrew Hemminger. Arundel's state champ Jeff Blachly (heavyweight) beat Joppatowne's Tony Zeller, 10-5, and St. Paul's Nick Alevrogiannis, 12-4.
