-Freedom wins Lou Nagy Duals

FHS report: The Eagles traveled to Broadway to compete in the Lou Nagy Duals. The tournament is named for Lou Nagy Jr., the late father of Kent Nagy, the Freedom Eagles head coach. For the 5th consecutive year the Eagles walked away with the first place trophy as they cruised their way into the finals.

The Eagles started the weekend by defeating East Rockingham, 62-18, and Rappahanock, 69-12, in early pool matches. In the championship pool, the Eagles fell behind to Harrisonburg 21-9 before rallying to take the next 8 matches and finish out the match with a 54-21 win. The Eagles would then defeat Western Albermarle 69-12, before matching up with host Broadway.

In the finals, the Eagles would be in a back and forth match until Sophomore Garret Moody would give the Eagles the lead for good at 152lbs, 26-21. The Eagles would ultimately finish the match with a 42-27 victory.

Going 5-0 on the weekend for the Eagles were Chris Hemstreet, Wes Reeves, Tariq Ayubi, Garret Moody, Bradley Nelson, and Andy Hinrichs all went undefeated on the weekend. Nelson ran his season record to 14-0, and Andy Hinrichs ran his to 19-1 on the year.

More FHS action: The Freedom Eagles started their successful winter break on Dec. 18 by defeating the Potomac Falls Panthers in front of a rowdy Freedom crowd, 60-18. The Eagles were led by Senior Captains Andy Hinrichs and Bradley Nelson, who each defeated quality opponents to pace the Eagles.

Nelson's last second takedown against state qualifier Omer Nazam gave him his second win over the Panther in two weeks and ran his season record to 9-0 on the year. Hinrichs match was less dramatic as he pinned AA State Place Winner Tad Haugen in the first period to expand the Eagles lead to 30-12 and the team never looked back.

On Dec. 21, the Eagles finished fourth out of 12 teams at the Atlee Duals. The Eagles, wrestling without several starters, went 3-2 on the weekend with their only losses coming to Virginia Prep Powerhouses, Benedictine and Liberty Christian Academy.

The Eagles started the weekend by losing a tough 48-32 decision to eventual Champion Benedictine, only to battle back throughout the day with wins over Chancellor 63-13, L.C. Byrd 58-12 and South Lakes 61-18. The Eagles only other loss was to the only other undefeated team on the weekend, Liberty Christian Academy 51-25.

Having outstanding weekends for the Eagles were Chris Hemstreet, Jantzen O'Toole, Wes Reeves, Garret Moody, Andy Hinrichs, Travis Whitfield, Devin Richards, and Nived Sultan were all 4-1 on the weekend for the Eagles. Andy Hinrichs would also celebrate his 100th career victory on the weekend.

THS report: The Broad Run Spartans and the Tuscarora Huskies faced off at Ida Lee Recreation Center. The Spartans' depth proved to be too much for the Huskies to overcome as the Broad Run men and women both were victorious. It was a great meet with both teams putting forth an excellent effort.

BRHS report: In the first-ever meet between the Broad Run and Tuscarora swim teams, the Spartan girls and boys both emerged with a victory. The girls outscored the Huskies 157-128, and the boys won handily, 174-112.

Broad Run’s girls, now 3-0, relied on the strength of their deep roster. Although they won only two individual events, the Spartan girls outscored the Huskies in 6 of 8 individual races. Emily Adams won the first individual event, the 200 free. The Spartan girls did not take another first until late in the meet, where the 1-2-3 sweep in the 100 back by Megan Thiede, Elena Streeter and Marissa Coggins nearly ensured the victory.

Broad Run only won one of the three relays, but in each relay their B team swam to a strong third place for crucial points. The Spartans capped the meet with a win in the 400 free relay. The A team (Gina Pappagallo, Helena Wang, Caroline Haines and Adams) easily took first. The B team (Coggins, Katelyn Leidy, Rachel Mihalic, Holly Williams) made a strong bid for second, but was outpaced by Tuscarora’s A team (Yasmine Boswell, Rachel Putt, Elizabeth Hartmann, Angela McMullen).

Tuscarora’s Pim Silpacharn and Imelda Ogango turned in strong performances, each winning two individual events and swimming on two first-place relays. Silpacharn, who to date has posted Loudoun’s top times in the 50 and 100 free, lowered her times even further as she sprinted to first in those events. Ogango, who also holds Loudoun’s top times this season in the 200 individual medley and 100 breaststroke, won both events and lowered her time in the medley. Both girls teamed with Bailey Jenkins and Angela McMullen to win the 200 medley relay and the 200 free relay. McMullen also took first in the 100 fly, while Isabelle Witteveen surged ahead at the finish to win the 500 free.

The boys meet also saw some fast individual performances, with three boys posting automatic qualifying times to the 5A North Regional meet. Broad Run’s Jack Morrisroe, with a pair of wins in the 100 fly and 100 back, posted a 54.46 in the fly to earn a trip to Regionals. Tuscarora’s Samuel Presgraves, a double winner in the 200 individual medley and 100 breaststroke, swam a Regional cut time of 1:01.37 in the breaststroke. Presgraves has already posted Loudoun’s fastest time this season in the breaststroke. Tuscarora’s Simon Shi, Loudoun’s top 100 freestyler to date, equaled his season-best 100 free with a 48.88.

Broad Run’s Matthew Trax led a Spartan 1-2-3 sweep in the 200 free, along with Alex Horvath and Brendan Cremins. The Spartans also swept the top 3 spots in the 100 back, with Morrisroe, Calvin Chenault and Cremins outpacing the rest of the field. Other Broad Run winners were Michael Kopecky in the 50 free and Dennis Yang in the 500 free. The Spartans were tops in the 200 free relay, with Morrisroe, Yang and Kopecky joining with Joey Pappagallo.

Tuscarora won two of the three relays, with Shi and Presgaves teaming with Alexander McKenna and Topher Frey in the 200 medley, while Shi and Presgraves joined with Zackery Hover and Merrick Watchorn in the 400 free relay.
