From Liberia, Kenwood's Nyonbou 'Boo' Farley wrestling for his future

From Liberia, Kenwood's Nyonbou 'Boo' Farley wrestling for his future | Kenwood Sports | Scoop.it

Junior, 18, took up sport after coming to United States before his freshman year, and he hopes it will be his ticket to college.

Matthew Wickman's insight:

Three banners hang from the wall in the wrestling room at Kenwood.

One lists the school's state champions, another honors the school's Baltimore County champions and a third commemorates a junior varsity county championship.

At first, that third banner embarrassed Nyonbou "Boo" Farley. He doesn't like to call attention to himself. But two years later, he knows how much it means.

After finishing second in the Baltimore County championships last week, Farley's 30-2 record in the 160-pound weight class earned him the top seed in this weekend's Class 4A-3A North regional tournament with a chance to earn a berth in the state championship on March 1-2 at the University of Maryland's Cole Field House.

Matthew Wickman's insight:

Kenwood's boys basketball team played inspired basketball in the second half of Friday's battle with previously unbeaten Dulaney, pulling off a 66-53 Baltimore County 3A/4A upset before a packed gym at Kenwood.
The Bluebirds trailed by seven at the half, but Kenwood surprised the Lions with a 19-3 third quarter run to take a lead it would never give up.  Kenwood (13-3, 6-1) received outstanding performances from Levan Jones, who scored a game-high 17 points, Keith Moody, who netted 15 points, and Will Jenkins, who finished with 12 points.
"I told his team at the half that they had to play more inspired defense and the points would result off of it," said Kenwood coach Chris Kelly. "They executed the plan and allowed the Kenwood faithful to go home happy with one of the school's biggest wins in years."
Dulaney is now 16-1 overall and 6-1 in the league.  The two teams are tied for second place.

Coston's three hands Kenwood a one point win

VarsitySportsNetwork.com is the premier source for high school sports coverage in the Baltimore metropolitan area.
Matthew Wickman's insight:

Kenwood's Chris Coston drained a three-pointer with 12 seconds left in the fourth quarter and the Bluebird defense stopped two subsequent Woodlawn possessions to hold on for a 51-50 Baltimore County boys basketball victory, Friday night in Essex.
Woodlawn held a 22-20 lead after a low scoring first half and the visiting Warriors drained a trio of three-pointers in the third quarter to surge in front by 12 points.  However, Kenwood's Dana Johns responded with his own three-pointer, as the period drew to close, moving the Bluebirds within nine.
In the fourth, Kenwood slowly chipped away at the lead, pulling to within two to set the stage for Coston's game winning shot.
Johns led Kenwood with 12 points.  James Brogdon did not score for the Bluebirds, but he had 10 rebounds and was outstanding on the defensive end.

New Varsity Wrestling Coach a Familiar Face at Kenwood

New Varsity Wrestling Coach a Familiar Face at Kenwood | Kenwood Sports | Scoop.it

When John Cooper is out of uniform, his kids put theirs on.

Cooper, a school resource officer (SRO) at Kenwood High School, is the new varsity wrestling coach there. The team opens their season on Dec. 6 at Owings Mills.

"I think being an SRO brings stability to the unit. They know that we follow certain guidelines, and we want our wrestlers to be not only good athletes but also good people and good citizens outside of wrestling," said the 44-year-old White Marsh resident, who brings decades of experience to the mat.

Kenwood charges from behind to down Dundalk

Kenwood charges from behind to down Dundalk | Kenwood Sports | Scoop.it
Kenwood's boys soccer squad improved to 9-2-1 in Baltimore County division play with a resounding, come-from-behind, 3-1, win at Dundalk, on Wednesday.
The Owls got on the board first with a nice header off of a freekick from the left side of the Bluebirds' net.  Kenwood, however, answered back quickly with sophomore striker Harman Kimaini, slotting a shot past the Dundalk keeper, off of a perfectly played through ball from junior midfielder, Pat McGuire. Kimaini would score again, just a few minutes later, poking in a rebound off of a long, throw-in and Kenwood never looked back.
Leading 2-1 at the half, coaches Mizell and Maki stressed the importance of getting the next goal at halftime and the Bluebirds didn't waste any time. Senior tri-captain Troy Hagy dented the Owls' net with a rocket shot off a drop pass from sophomore striker Billy Mudimba, just minutes into the half. From there, Kenwood successfully absorbed sustained pressure from the Dundalk attack for much of the half.  Senior tri-captain Jorge Rivera led the effort by the back line, along with fellow seniors Edgar Walker and Sean Stallings and junior Boo Farley.  Senior tri-captain goalkeeper, Johnny Thomas, preserved the Bluebirds victory with a stellar save, tipping an Owls header over the crossbar with one hand late in the game.
The 'Birds strong finish to the regular season will result in a spot near the top of their division standings and, possibly, a bye in the first round of the state playoffs. Kenwood closed it's best regular season under Mizell with four wins over the past two weeks, knocking off Patapsco (5-0), Loch Raven (2-1) and Franklin (1-0).

No. 15 Kenwood surges through Edgewood; Wright and Brogdon combine for 27

Matthew Wickman's insight:

Back in December, Kenwood High boys’ basketball team’s confidence was shaken after losing the regular season opener. With the postseason approaching, the No. 15 Bluebirds appear ready for a deep run.

The Essex school demolished Edgewood, 71-33, in a late season non-league special Monday afternoon. Senior forward Traevon Wright led Kenwood with 14 points, and James Brogdon added 13.

The Bluebirds (16-3 overall) scored the game’s first nine points against the defending UCBAC champions and never looked back, winning for the seventh time in the last eight decisions. Kenwood coach Chris Kelly was impressed his team posted more assists (12) than turnovers (10) for the first time this season....

John Cooper will be Kenwood's new wrestling coach, according to the school.

Cooper is a resident of Nottingham and a Baltimore County police officer.

But what makes him the school's new choice as the Bluebirds' coach is that the former Archbishop Curley wrestler can bring a lot of experience to the team.

Kenwood's Hall of Fame To Honor Former Orioles Pitcher

Dave Leonhard will be the first to tell you: He was just another team player at Kenwood High School.

"I couldn't put anybody out in baseball my senior year. I was an OK cross country runner, just middle of the pack, but I got better at all that stuff as I got older," he said. "I had a decent arm, I could run and jump, I just couldn't play the games very well."

Of course, he played well enough to be part of a county baseball championship, play baseball at Johns Hopkins University and, eventually, pitch for the Baltimore Orioles.

Kenwood ends a 16 year drought against Eastern Tech

Before a large and vocal home crowd at Michael Collins Stadium, Kenwood ended 16 years of frustration against neighborhood rival Eastern Tech, Friday night, as the Bluebirds topped the Mavericks 19-13 in Baltimore County 3A/4A football action.
Although the two campuses are separated by less than two miles, the fortunes of the two programs have been light years apart over the last decade and half, as Eastern Tech had defeated the Bluebirds 16 consecutive times.
Kenwood quarterback Jaleel Figgins passed for two scores in the contest including an electrifying 73 yard pass and run to Keith Moody that gave the Bluebirds a 7-0 lead in the opening quarter.  Figgins, who passed for 177 yards in the contest and rushed 105 more, stretched the lead to 13-0 with a 30 yard TD strike to Tyshaun Owens.
Tech got on the board with a touchdown run in the third quarter, but Chrishawn Lewis pushed Kenwood further in front, 19-7, with a 23 yard TD run in the fourth quarter.
Moody finished with 92 yards receiving on three catches.  On defense Dennis Harrell had a monster game, recording 11 tackles, forcing two fumbles and recovering one fumble. A'Donte Wallace also came up big with a pair of interceptions.

Kenwood improved to 2-1 on the season and 1-1 in the 3A/4A league.  Tech is now 0-3, overall and in the league.
