WASHINGTON — In a battle of two D.C. area powers, the Gonzaga Eagles rolled over the Georgetown Prep Hoyas to the tune of a 40-0 victory, and won the Jesuit Gridiron Classic Saturday.

The Gonzaga offense was rolling throughout the game, and it didn’t take long for it to get going. On the opening drive of the game, Gonzaga junior John Marshall made it to the end zone with a 22-yard touchdown run.

The Bears captured a 13-7 victory over the Little Hoyas on Triplett Field at Bordley Stadium to remain unbeaten.

“There’s something special about coming on this field and playing Prep,” said Landon junior attack Gilbert Sentimore, who finished with two goals and two assists to help the Bears improve to 16-0. “Lots of alums on both sides and our coach [Rob Bordley] always reads us emails about alums saying they’d give anything to be back here on this field again.”

PHOTO BY MARK POETKER  POTOMAC – A six-point lead in the first quarter was emblematic of the lacrosse game between the Bullis Bulldogs and the Georgetown Prep Little Hoyas Friday night, as the Bulldogs were dominant enough to never lose the lead in the 11-4 win.

But the path to victory was not without its bumps: early in the second quarter, senior Bulldogs midfielder Michael Chiaramonte fouled out after an altercation on the field, giving the Little Hoyas an advantage.

The hiccup was only temporary, and the Bulldogs kept their dominant pacing throughout the match to win with a comfortable lead.

Prep’s Krause, Good Counsel’s Thomas, Daniel repeat state title wins

  • Published in Sports

Georgetown Prep’s Ethan Krause traveled a similar path and achieved the same result as he did a year ago, winning his second straight crown and pacing the Little Hoyas to a sixth place finish at last weekend’s private schools state tournament at Harford County Community College.

Krause won his 145-pound title bout, 5-2, over McDonogh’s Quinn Devaney, a Maryland University-bound senior who was runner-up for the third straight year. Krause defeated Devaney 3-2 in last year’s 138-pound final after missing the private schools tournament as a sophomore due to a concussion.

“This means a lot to me being a multiple-time state champ in that it solidifies me as one of the better wrestlers in Maryland. It’s something I can look back upon when I'm older,” said Krause, whose record is 49-2. “I feel like I wrestled well in my finals match. I wanted it to be more convincing than my previous meetings with him. For that to happen I needed multiple takedowns.”

Last year’s win over Devaney followed Krause’s 87-second pin of Archbishop Spalding’s Nick Goray, whom Krause handled 11-5 in last weekend’s semifinal. Krause had also blanked Goray 5-0 for the crown in last season’s Mount Mat Madness Invitational, which the Duke University-bound senior won yet again earlier in this year.

“Krause has a workmanlike approach to competition. He doesn't leave position,” said Adam DeCosmo, an Archbishop Spalding assistant who was twice a Class 4A-3A state champ at Old Mill in Anne Arundel County before graduating in 2001.

“That makes shutting down the offense of guys like Devaney and Goray look easy. It is quite clear this comes from discipline in the practice room and year-round wrestling. He uses left leg attacks when he does attack and most wrestlers are righties, so they are not used to defending that side of a leg attack.”

Also wrestling well for the Little Hoyas was senior Thomas Gates (285), who was a runner-up to McDonogh junior P.J. Mustipher following a 5-2 loss.

Caleb Wilson (170) and Riley Stewart (182) finished fourth, and Kobe Borda (126, fifth), Joe Keane (120, seventh) and Cole Robilotto (138, eighth) all finished within the top eight for the Little Hoyas two weeks after winning their 13th straight Interstate Athletic Conference title and seven days prior to next weekend’s National Preps Tournament in Lehigh, Pennsylvania.

“This makes all the hard work worth it,” said Krause, who looks to improve on fifth-place finish at last year’s National Preps as well as a seventh-place finish at the National High School Coaches’ Association tournament in April.

“It reminds me that I need to work hard to accomplish my goals. This is a great lead up to National Preps, and it’s giving me the confidence I need to win a national title. That’s been on my mind since I was a freshman.”

Seniors Bailey Thomas (152) and Brady Daniel (220) won individual titles, and junior Cord Richardson (120) and senior Jalen Lea (285) finished third for fifth place Good Counsel, whose other place winners were freshman Conor Lozupone (106, fifth), Drew Brenowitz (182, sixth) and Avery Miller (145, eighth).

A year ago, Thomas and Daniel were among the Falcons’ six individual champions who guided their program to their second private schools states title. Daniel ended the year by placing a team-high third at the National Preps.

Dethroned as perennial Washington Catholic Athletic Conference tournament champions by Saint John’s, which last month ended their conference dual meet winning streak at 55 matches, the Falcons got Thomas’ 10-0 title bout shutout of Loyola’s Dominick Reyes in the championship match.

Daniel required overtime for a 7-5 victory over John Urban of third-place St. Paul’s as he added his second private schools crown to the Class 4A-3A state title he won as a 182-pound sophomore at River Hill of Howard County.

Daniel has chance to surpass the achievements of his older brother Cory, a former two-time state champion who went undefeated over his final two seasons at River Hill.

Senior Aryemis Brown (160) finished third for the second straight year among five place winners for eighth-place Bullis, followed by Ethan Sypes (220, fifth), sixth-place Isaac Ruderman (113) and Marcelo Motta (132) and eighth-place Bazin Sineshaw (106).

Junior Brendon Gallagher (138) was a runner-up for 12th place Landon, falling 5-3 to Imran Heard of St. Paul’s in the finals. Patrick Kielb (106), Jelani Machen (160) and Carter Johnson (195) placed sixth, and Terrance Bridgers (285), eighth for the Bears.

“Brendon Gallagher sits at 112 career victories, and the highest career mark in Landon wrestling history is 117. We had two freshmen break the season-high wins mark at 29 victories,” said Bears’ coach Andy Katz.

“Patrick has 31 victories and Lorenzo Lopez has 41…Patrick, Jelani, Carter and Brendon earned spots at National Preps next weekend. Hopefully, we can bring home some hardware and continue setting the bar high for our program.”

Georgetown Prep wins 13th IAC wrestling title

  • Published in Sports

Georgetown Prep crowned Ethan Krause (152), Kobe Borda (126), Caleb Wilson (170), Riley Stewart (182) and Thomas Gates (285) to overcome Landon for its 13th straight Interstate Athletic Conference title on Saturday.

The Little Hoyas (166 points) had four runners-up and placed 11 wrestlers within the top four of their weight classes to 12 for the Bears (153), losers of three of five title-bout matchups to the champions while crowning Patrick Kielb (106), Lorenzo Lopez (120), Brendon Gallagher (138) and Carter Johnson (195) among seven finalists.

“I feel that we wrestled pretty sluggish; however, the guys who needed to perform got the job done,” said Krause, a repeat champion who will wrestle for Duke University next season. “I knew nothing was guaranteed, so I spoke to some of the guys before the finals about stepping up in the finals, and they did.”
