Wrestlers of Yesterday

The 1994 season was an important one in Maryland high school wrestling. It was the last year of the MSA conference– which had included most Baltimore area private schools and all the Baltimore City public schools. The MSA tournament went as the previous 18 had gone with a Mount St. Joseph team title. The Baltimore City public schools did not travel to Lehigh University for the National Prep Tournament but Dunbar’s Bruce Pendles took Outstanding Wrestler honors as the City schools ended their run with the privates.

The National Prep results had not been available for this year but Maryland was able to add 27 All-Americans in the year– including 3 from Riverdale Baptist a school not currently known for its wrestling history.
