Three student wrestlers from La Plata High School – senior Anthony Cable, junior Marty Margolis and sophomore Cameron Butler – were named to the Maryland State Wrestling Association’s (MSWA) 2014 All Academic Teams. The teams honor outstanding student wrestlers for their academic performance as well as their performance on the wrestling mat.
Two teams – a first team and a second team – were selected for recognition, and additional students were recognized with honorable mention designations. Cable was selected to represent the 170 lb. weight class on the first team and was honored for his high grade-point average and exemplary SAT score. Cable also received first place in the 4A/3A state tournament in his weight class.
Margolis was selected to represent the 126 lb. weight class on the second team and was honored for his high grade-point average. Margolis also received first place in the 4A/3A tournament in his weight class.
Butler was selected to represent the 106 lb. weight class on the first team and was recognized for his high grade-point average. Butler also won third place in his weight class in the 4A/3A finals.
All three students were recognized by the MSWA in a special ceremony on March 11. The MSWA accepts nominations of students for consideration on the All Academic Teams. Only one wrestler per weight class in Maryland is selected for both the first and second teams. Students can be nominated by parents, teachers, school staff or their coach. Jonathon Pankhurst, special education teacher and wrestling coach at La Plata, submitted letters of recommendation on the athletes behalf.
