After an undefeated regular season, a state championship and the top ranking in Maryland all year, John Carroll junior Mathew Miller (152 pounds) finished the year with a fourth place finish at National Preps over the weekend.

Miller went 5-2 with four falls and his semifinal loss was to the eventual champion, Georgia’s Jason Luster, who attends Kiski Prep School in western Pennsylvania, by a score of 15-11. Miller ends the year 52-2 with 45 pins.

Freshman George Weber (125) ended his season coming from the 12th seed to place sixth at National Preps. Weber’s first loss at the tournament came in the quarterfinals to the eventual champion Jeffrey Ott from Belmont Hill School in Boston, Mass., by a score of 7-2. Weber’s record on the year was 50-8. He won the MIAA’s and was third at the state tournament.

State champion Scott Strappelli had a rough tournament, going 3-2 and losing his final bout, 4-2, to Connor Duffey, the eventual fourth place finisher from New York who attends Brooks Prep in Andover, Mass.

Teamwise, John Carroll had its best showing ever, placing 21st in the 142 team field.
