The Cavaliers senior came into the tournament needing five wins to become Maryland's new all-time wins leader for public-school wrestlers. Given that Thomas hadn't lost a varsity match since his freshman year, his chances were strong.
Thomas then capped his 5-0 day at 126 pounds by beating Bullis Prep's Liam Handel to make state history. He pinned Handel in the first period for career win No. 176.
Thomas improved to 31-0 this season, and his career mark stands at 176-4. His Friday performance gave him 134 consecutive wins, a streak that dates back to the 2014 state tournament.
Hamper said a wrestler like Thomas comes into a high school program once or twice in a lifetime — and that was after Thomas' sophomore season, when he went 48-0 and won his first of two state crowns en route to being named Times Wrestler of the Year.
