Coach Steve Iles has watched his Delsea High wrestling team blossom this season, and last night's 36-27 Tri-County Conference victory over host Glassboro hammered home just how far the Crusaders have come. The interdivision triumph was the visiting Crusaders' fifth win in a row, and it raised their overall record to 5-1. Since an opening-day loss to nonleague rival Vineland, Delsea has been nearly unstoppable. "We're showing a lot of improvement with every match, and that's all I can ask of my team at this point," Iles said.

He didn't know many people when he moved last year, but now everyone seems to know Ryan Goodman's name. That's how it is, though, at Absegami, where the high school wrestling team is king. Last night, Goodman, a sophomore who transferred from Middle Township, seemed at home in his new surroundings. The top seed in the 152-pound class, he notched a technical fall in 4 minutes, 47 seconds against Paulsboro's Nino Polimeni in the quarterfinals at the NJSIAA Region 8 wrestling championships.

Mark Kelly was feeling the pressure before Eastern High's nonleague wrestling match with visiting Glassboro yesterday. The senior was going for his 100th career victory. It didn't matter that he was going for it against a freshman. "I was nervous before the match," Kelly said. "Usually, I'm not as nervous. " Kelly's jitters weren't apparent once he stepped onto the mat. He went out and notched No. 100 in the same way he had registered many of his previous 99 victories - by sheer domination.

Lenape High School's wrestling team has left little doubt as to who is in charge in the Burlington County Liberty Division. The host Indians manhandled Cherokee, 36-19, last night. "I was very happy with everyone up and down the lineup," Lenape coach Russ Minuto said. "We knew they were going to be tough, and I'm surprised we won like we did. " Lenape used pins from James Young at 112 pounds and Scott Fenton at 189, along with a technical fall from Chee Santone at 119, in clinching the important Liberty Division victory.

Delsea's game plan proved to be simple and decisive last night against visiting Delran. Attack, attack and attack again.

Relentlessly using an aggressive style, Delsea won 10 of 13 bouts to crush Delran, seeded fourth in the group and the Burlington County League Freedom Division champion.

They never had a chance. The 15 other wrestlers in the 171-pound weight class in the PIAA Class AA state tournament knew it. And they weren't alone. Just about everyone at the Giant Center knew that Octorara all-American Mike Letts would dominate the competition. And that's exactly what he did during the three-day tourney. Letts recorded a technical fall (18-1) over Westmont-Hilltop freshman Zac Bennett in 3 minutes, 17 seconds to win yesterday's final. The victory marked the second state championship for the Octorara senior.

At the conclusion of the 153-pound match of yesterday's NJSIAA Group 2 state final, Buena coach Doug Castellari thought to himself: This has never happened before. He had just seen his seven best wrestlers - Buena's Murderer's Row of lightweights - battle Voorhees and fail to get a pin. In fact, the Chiefs had lost four of the eight bouts. This was not good. Voorhees went on to earn three pins and a technical fall in the final five bouts of the match to win, 40-21, at Kittatinny Regional High School.
