#2 Kurt McHenry Out Of National Preps

106 lbs Semifinal - Kurt Mchenry, St. Paul's School vs Andrew Clark, Collingswood
Live This Week On Flo: Feb. 24/25 - National Preps | Feb. 24/25 - NJCAA National Championships | Feb. 26 - National Collegiate Open

It appears that cadet world champ Kurt McHenry will miss National Preps, allegedly due to an incident at the Maryland Independent State tournament. Multiple sources have confirmed that McHenry's name was not in the official entry list during this evening's seeding meeting.

In the 106lb state finals, McHenry of St. Paul's faced off with Chris Barnabae of Mount Saint Joseph high school. The two have wrestled multiple times this year and the match got chippy towards the end. As you can see in the video below, McHenry is given an unsportsmanlike conduct after they go out of bounds at the end of the match.



The video then ends, but according to one source, McHenry then received a second unsportsmanlike conduct after the Mt St. Joe coach refused to shake his hand. We were unable to obtain video of that exchange, however, he indicated that the St. Joe coach instigated the situation. MSJ is coached by Barnabae's father Harry. McHenry allegedly backed away after going over to shake his hand, pointed to the St. Paul's crest on his singlet, pounded his chest and shouted, "Let's go!" toward the crowd. It was at this point he was issued a second unsportsmanlike for taunting.

FloWrestling has been able to confirm why the undefeated sophomore cannot compete this weekend. McHenry competes in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association, which has a rule stipulating if an athlete in any sport receives two unsportsmanlike conduct penalties, they must miss the next two competitions, which is gone over in this Baltimore Sun story. Team scores show that three team points were deducted from St. Paul's final team score, attributed to the 106lb finals match.

McHenry was 55-0 on the year, having won Beast of the East, Powerade and Escape the Rock. He was almost a guaranteed lock to be the #1 seed this weekend, and will now miss the final tournament of the year in large part it seems because an opposing coach, the father of his opponent, refused to shake his hand.
