John Carroll’s Julianne Moccia becomes first female from Maryland to qualify with boys for National Preps

by Billy Loverocket

The story I expected to be writing at the end of the Maryland Independent Schools State Tournament at McDonogh on Saturday was one of the Eagles’ seniors putting yet another first in their scrapbook, a state title.

Instead, it was St. Joe’s seniors seeing their four-year run end with a fourth state title. This group was the first to fully reap the benefits of coach Harry Barnabae’s program rebuild. The first title was expected, but still a tight battle, the last few years did not have as much drama, this year the crown was expected to end up resting on McDonogh’s heads.

But Barnabae, whose team had seemed snake bitten at every turn this year, finally had the grace of the wrestling gods back on his side. That, and the timely return of a few grapplers coupled with an overachieving performance allowed St. Joe, to once more, stand atop the state hierarchy.

“Keeping moral up when so many of your team leaders were out with injury or sickness was our greatest challenge this year,” Barnabae said. “We shifted our game plan from trying to win every tournament as a team to focusing on the improvement of individual performances in the events. With the idea of having everyone healthy for the end of the season tournament. We were confident that if we could accomplish that task then we would win the State tournament.”

The Gaels’ Nathan Porter (No. 3 at 132) embodied that spirit on Saturday. The senior has had his share of disappointments at the state tournament, placing second last year and third as a freshman and sophomore (despite coming in as the favorite the last two years).

It was Porter’s turn to bring the rain this year, he avenged a loss from the Mount Mat Madness finals to Landon’s Lorenzo Lopez (No. 2) in the semis, 5-3. McDonogh’s super freshman, No.1 Clayton Gabrielson stood in Porter’s way of the coveted state crown. Gabrielson won their first three meetings. That meant nothing to Porter as he capitalized on a quick start and walked away with a 5-4 victory.

“It feels amazing,” Porter exclaimed. “It’s a great win, hopefully we get the team win too. I just had to step it up this time. It’s states, this is where the big boys run. I just had to go after it. It was my last chance. It feels good to finally get it done senior year.”

No. 3 Clement Woods came in on a mission (get the No. 1 ranking) and executed it on his run to the 138lb title. In the semis, Woods took out No. 2 Damon McGee (Bullis), 8-4. In the finals, the junior was facing No. 1 Joe Fisk (Spalding) in the rubbermatch of their season series. Woods pinned Fisk in the Mount Mat Madness finals, Fisk edged Woods, 6-5, in the MIAA finals.

The match featured all the fireworks associated with “Sweetness” (as the Gael is nicknamed) taking the mat. Woods’ style is full of action and big moves. Fisk was game and fought back from an early deficit before the McKim product put it away with a few takedowns at the end for a 19-12 score, and his first state gold.

“I’m so proud of myself,” Woods continued. “I worked so hard for this. I put in the blood, the sweat, and really the tears, every week, every practice. (I’m) just so proud of my teammates, my coaches, my family, and everyone who supports me in everything.

“Last night I swear to god, I couldn’t sleep. I woke up three times just thinking about these finals and semifinal matches. I love Fisk to death, that’s my friend and it is so great when we wrestle each other. At MMM I pinned him, everyone thought it was a fluke. He beat me at MIAAs by one point. Its’s hard to beat the same person twice, so this week I just practiced on lateral movement, keep moving my feet because whenever I stopped, he got in on the double.”

Senior Chris Roybal (No. 1) continued his methodical run to the top of the state podium. After taking over the state’s No. 1 position with a win over Owings Mills’ two-time state champion Phil Smith, the only thing left was the void of a state title. Roybal, now a four-time state pacer, claimed his first crown, posting a dominant 9-0 major-decision of Bullis’ No. 13 Isaac Ruderman. Ruderman upset No. 4 Josh Aybar (Loyola), 10-8, in the semifinals.

“This is all I’ve been working for the past four years,” Roybal said. “Honestly, I’m really kind of relieved and I am just so happy right now. “(I was thinking) don’t choke it kind of, but also I knew these guys would be coming to knock me off, so I just had to bring my A game and I did.”
St. Joe’s first titlist on the day, No. 3 Coleman Nogle, made what he hopes is the first step in becoming a four-time state champ. The freshman pinned St. Mary’s-Ryken’s Mason Buckler (No. 9) in the 106lb finals, 4:42. Nogle was a double Cadet All-American at Fargo last summer.

“It’s a good accomplishment, winning a state title as a freshman,” Nogle added. “that was the goal going into the freshman year, so it feels to get that done. The pin was big. Our biggest goal here was just to win this tournament, get the fourth consecutive title. And that pin, I really felt it helped our team. The goal was to just put some team points on the board so we could take home the title.”

Nogle can learn from teammate Connor Strong (No. 1 at 160) about the perils and challenges of pursuing four state titles. Strong finished on top as a freshman and sophomore but hasn’t been able to replicate that success since. Strong was surprised by McDonogh’s No. 3 Harrison Trahan in his state tournament finale, 15-9. Strong had previously majored Trahan at the Beast of the East. On his revenge tour Trahan got even with Loyola’s No. 2 Damon Nelson, who pinned him last week at MIAA’s.

“I’m just on top of the world,” remarked Trahan. “At the beginning of the day I was just focused on my semifinals match. He (Nelson) got a good win over me last weekend it was nice just to get out there and scrap with him. (It was) sweet revenge, but then I avenged a loss in the finals that I had from Beast of the East. I kept that in mind throughout the rest of the season and here I am top of the podium and it feels amazing.”

Enduring his own upset was No. 1 Chris Barnabae (126). The senior was set to face the upstart Meyer Shapiro (No. 2) from Bullis. Shapiro was highly recruited and thought to be headed to St. Joe at one point, so this battle had a history. The freshman placed fifth at the Beast and third at PowerAde where he beat Rocco Welsh from Waynesburg, PA. Welsh defeated Barnabae in the Ironman fifth place bout.

The action was full throttle from the whistle with both wrestlers showing off next-level athleticism. Amidst a scramble, Shapiro locked up a cradle. But couldn’t settle it. Shapiro then showed the cockiness of a battle tested freshman and lifted Barnabae with force for what would turn out to be the fatal turn.

A surprised Barnabae kneeled on the mat, stunned, collecting his thoughts. The heartbroken senior handled it with the grace of a champion, even smiling at his rival in a nod of respect while shaking hands and congratulating Shapiro on outmaneuvering him. The performance earned Shapiro the Outstanding Wrestler trophy.

Also bringing home sliver for the Gaels were No. 3 Joe Couch (113) and No. 3 Parker Warner (195). No. 7 Jacob Wright (120) and No. 11 Tony Zancan (170) were awarded bronze. No. 3 Matthew Jun (145) and No. 25 Gavin Bage (285) were sixth. At 182, Gavin Dixon landed in the eighth spot.

Harrison Trahan

“Although they were not 100%, the return of Connor Strong, Joe Couch, and Chris Barnabae, back into the lineup together, was definitely a morale booster,” added Barnabae. “And the team rose to the occasion. Not to mention that Nathan Porter wrestled through the flu. In normal circumstances any of these wrestlers could have sat out of the tournament, however, they did not want to let the team down.

“I give a great deal of credit to our Athletic trainer Jon Glover, who goes over and beyond his daily duties and worked miracles, with physical therapy, in order to prepare our wrestlers for competition. We couldn’t have done it without him.”

The day was not a total bummer for the McDonogh faithful as they saw their squad crown the most champs (five) and see two guys win their first titles, Trahan and No. 1 Jack Wimmer (195). The runner-up finish cannot diminish what the Eagles have done this year, winning the MIAA dual and bracketed tournament. In addition, they took out Pennsylvania AAA Dual State Champs Nazareth to win the Virginia Duals.

“Like I’ve said before, there’s a lot of luck involved with this sport,” said McDonogh coach Pete Welch. “There’s a lot of things that have to be managed, beside on just match day. Keeping kids healthy is part of the challenge. Last week we were successful at it. This week they were successful at it. It’s just part of the sport.

“I think we still competed very well. I’m just so proud of this group of guys. I think they’ve really grown as a team. They’ve gotten better which is exciting to see. To win the MIAAs and the dual meet was a huge notch for our team and we’re proud of it.”

Wimmer’s story was incomplete. The senior had accomplished so much in his four years wearing the McDonogh orange; three-time Beast of the East and Ironman placer, two-time National Prep placer, three-time state placer. But the one thing eluding him was a state championship.

Wimmer, who was a runner-up last year and third his first two years, had to work into overtime to achieve this goal, but put a check mark in the box with a takedown in the first overtime frame for a 3-1 decision.

“Finally winning it senior year feels pretty good especially after being so close for the past three years,” Wimmer relayed. “It’s nice to end on a high note. I knew I was going to win. I kept talking to myself, kept saying to myself, “You are going to win this match, you are going to find a way to win.”

“There was never any doubt in my mind, even going into overtime. I know I am in better shape than most guys I wrestle. This was one of my last matches I’m down to 5-6 matches left in my career, so I went out there telling myself just have fun, and just enjoy it while it lasts.”

No. 1 Dominic Solis capped his stellar career, which also saw him win the award for most career points scored, with a third straight gold planting Bullis’ Austin Brown in the second period, 3:41, at 182lbs. No. 1 Garrett Kappes (285) and No. 1 Cooper Flynn (120) both captured their second championships.

Kappes second straight wall chart was won with a 9-2 decision of No. 8 Brandon Roberts (Good Counsel). Flynn got back on top after finishing second last year with a hard-fought showdown with No. 3 NaSir Wilkinson (Bullis). The junior captured gold with a 6-4 edge.

Cooper Flynn

In addition to Gabrielson’s silver, other Eagles to earn hardware were, No. 5 Joel Brown (113) and No. 2 Jackson Bonitz (220) who took home bronze. Gerrard Johnson, filling in for the ailing Richard Fedalen, came in fourth at 126, as did No. 4 Matt Lawrence at 138lbs. Mohammed Ndiaye (7th at 145) and Aidan Hurdle (8th at 170) round out McDonogh’s awardees.

“I was so pleased for Jack,” Welch conveyed. “He’s worked so hard for four years. He’s always been in a weight class with some really, really good kids, and this year too. He won a close one in the semis and another close one in the finals. To have Jack pull it out and get it done was really exciting.

“That’s another example of respecting the sport and knowing that anybody can beat anybody. Trahan got beat by Nelson from Loyola last week in the semifinals and that was heartbreaking for him. And it almost happened again in this semi-final against the same kid. To overcome that, then wrestle a kid that has beaten him before and just step up and get it done. It was great to see him overcome some of those internal battles and perform so well in the finals.”

Loyola coach Steve Truitt has been slowly and steadily building his crew into a state power. Their No.4 ranking and third place showing here validate the recent maneuvers by Truitt and his coaching staff.

The Dons crowned just one champ, No. 12 James Conway (170), but 13 of their 14 wrestlers reached the awards stand. The state tournament is a brewing ground for special performances and Conway stepped up. In the semis, he got revenge on St. Joe’s Zancan from last week’s MIAA tournament, 3-1.

To earn the gold, Conway again had to beat someone who had handed him an earlier loss, John Carroll’s CJ Polesovsky (No. 8). On this day, Conway, who is a junior, came out ahead of the Patriot, 3-1.

“(The plan was to) just wrestle smart like I did with Zancan in the semis,” Conway said. “I felt I could have been a bit more active with my shots. I’m so happy. I haven’t stopped smiling.”

James Conway

Capturing silver for Loyola were, No. 9 Cole Myers (145), Josh Aybar (152), and No. 11 Jeremiah Aybar (182). Logan Kisner (106, No. 25) and Nelson were fourth. No. 6 Matty Walsh (120) and Robbie Franklin (195) placed fifth. Falling to sixth were No. 24 Jimmy Douglas (113) and Kyree Day (138). Placing seventh were Ryan Eby (126) and Bailey Brunner (220). No. 21 Owen Dixon was eighth at 132.

Despite Polesovsky’s loss the day was not all gloom and doom for John Carroll. 106lber Julianne Moccia (No. 5 in the private school rankings) set a goal before the season to qualify for the National Prep tournament (the top six in each weight make the trip).

The junior did that, placing sixth, becoming the first female from Maryland to ever qualify for the National Prep Tournament. It is believed that she is just the second female to ever qualify (Georgetown Day School had one in through the DC qualifier a few years ago).

“It was a lot of hard work,” said Moccia. “But it was fun. I’m proud of myself and I worked really hard for it. I want to thank all my coaches for all their help and my teammates.”

The National Prep board has added a girl’s division this year, so Moccia will compete in that bracket. Given her ability to qualify with the boys, you’d have to think Moccia will be a title contender next weekend at Lehigh University.

Spalding came in fourth, posting one champ, No. 1 Brady Pruett (113). Pruett renewed his rivalry with St. Joe’s Couch to the tune of a 3-1 win. It was Pruett’s fifth win over Couch in the two years both have been in high school. Pruett was a runner-up last year to Bullis’ Wilkinson, who wrestled for St. Paul’s last year.

“It feels really good coming out and having a different outcome than last year,” continued Pruett. “I was thinking that I’m just going to hit the same stuff I hit the whole year. It’s been working for me. Leading up to this week, I’ve just been sharpening what I’m doing, making it really good.”

Bullis crowned one other champ to go along with Shapiro, No. 1 Gene Quodala (145). Quodala, a junior who worked his craft at St. Paul’s the last two years, blanked Spalding’s No. 2 Nick Paolucci, 9-0, for his first trip to the top of the pedestal.

Georgetown Prep’s all-world No. 1 220lber, Kyonte Hamilton, added another title to his impressive junior year resume that includes Beast of the East, Mount Mat Madness, and Escape the Rock golds as well as a third-place finish at the Ironman.

Hamilton ran up 17-1 technical fall of Gilman’s Mattheus Carroll (No. 3). Carroll picked off McDonogh’s Bonitz in the semis after losing to the Eagle in their first two encounters.

St. Mary’s-Ryken’s Terrance McCauley (285, No. 10) placed third and won the trophy for most pins in the shortest amount of time.

When Barnabae reflects back on this one, it is going to be a bit more special. His squad faced so much adversity, losing wrestlers to injury, health problems, and more.
Barnabae said, “They never stopped believing.”

“This year’s State championship, unquestionably, has been the most satisfying, particularly, when you factor in how many of our original starters have been out of the lineup throughout the season. Every week the team was challenged, however, our seasoned senior class had one goal in mind and that was to capture their fourth consecutive MIS State Championship.”

They earned this one. They persevered. The dual meet loss, while expected, hurt. The feeling all year, was despite St. Joe’s successes elsewhere, they were awaiting the powerful force of McDonogh at seasons end. That dread played out in the dual and MIAA Tournament, but the story of St. Joe’s 2019-2020 season would be written with yet another state championship in the books.
“This senior class wanted to accomplish what few teams have, and that was to go out on top knowing that they were the No.1 team for four consecutive years,” Barnabae offered. “In order for that to occur each and every wrestlers’ performance was essential, which included some little-known wrestlers such as Bage, Dixon, and (Liam) Flynn (220).

“This was a total team effort. It begins with our Coaching staff: Chris Combs, Matt Hicks, Shane Lowman, Brad Mutchnik, Kevin Johnson, Adam Whitesell, Malik Woody, and Rick Couch.”
