OFFSEASON/PRESEASON

#FLASuper32: 3 Northerners Take 1st Saturday

KISSIMMEE — Three wrestlers from the coverage area have already secured Florida Super 32 Early Entry weight-class wins Saturday.

A few more hope to join them Sunday with the conclusion of wrestling at the event, which will start at 8 a.m. with all HS boys competition at Osceola HS. Middle school competition begins at 11 a.m., also at Osceola.

Picking up the one boys’ title handed out Saturday was Clay’s Garrett Tyre, who won both of his matches at 285. Tyre opened with a 7-1 win thanks to a pair of 3rd-period takedowns over Forest/FCA Empowered’s Cane Fernandez, then falled Fishhawk’s Landon Jones in 1:37 for the title. Fernandez secured second with a 40-second pin over Jones.

Panhandle wrestlers Maya Alvarado (97) and Helena Alcantar (108), both wrestling for Panda, also were victorious on Saturday.

Alvarado was 1-1 in the 97 class, opening with a 12-10 loss to Palmetto Ridge’s Hayle Peck. Needing a win in the next round against Doral Academy’s Victoria Ceballos, Alvarado broke open a 6-6 tie with four scoring moves to go out to leads of 11-6 and 13-8 before pinning Ceballos in 3:57. That pin would prove instrumental in Alvarado’s placing first, as Ceballos took a 13-6 win over Peck.

Alcantar dominated the 108 class, opening with a 10-0 superior win over Gladiator’s Adriana Veras in the quarters, then taking pins over SW Florida Elite’s Iyonna Church-Ross (1:10) in the semis and over Mater Lakes’ Sofia Ferran (1:32) for the title.

Girls runnerups from the coverage area were Kailani Barrientos (Oakleaf) at 123 and Emma Dix (Ponte Vedra) at 195. Barrientos won twice (fall in 2:40, 10-0 tech fall) before falling in the final, 10-4, to Palm Harbor University’s Callie Alfieri. Dix lost twice to Garage Boyz’ Alyssa Favara in the 195 division (10-0 TF and fall in :53).

Also placing third in the girls division were Erin Rizzuto (Ponte Vedra, 108), Cynthia Kowitski (Ponte Vedra, 115), Bailey Waltz (Timber Creek, 130), Olivia Richie (Ponte Vedra, 139), along with St Johns County resident Mary Manis (103, wrestling for Lake Highland). Timber Creek’s Madison Waltz was fourth at 139.

#GASuper32: Hejke, Rizzuto Take 2nds

COLUMBUS, GA — Two north Floridians earned automatic qualifying berths for Super32 by finishing second in their weight classes Saturday at the Convention & Trade Center.

Mosley senior Nick Hejke (145) and Ponte Vedra freshman Erin Rizzuto (108) both took runnerup finishes in their weight classes at the GA Super32 Early Entry event. Florida’s early entry event starts next weekend at Osceola.

Although Hejke came in as a two-time FL state placer (5th in 2A for the Dolphins last year), he was unseeded in the tournament. Unfazed, he began his journey to the final with a 5-0 decision over #6 seed Cullen Kane of Teknique, a Georgia 6A 3rd at state in February. Hejke then edged Oso Sports’ Mario Bolivar, 2-1, getting out from bottom in the ultimate tiebreaker for a round-of-16 win. In the quarters, Hejke rolled early against Greenbrier (GA)’s Boston McDermott, with takedowns every period en route to an 11-0 major.

That set up a matchup with 2 seed and Georgia 5A runnerup Tyler McKnight of Cass HS in the semis; there, Hejke made a late first-period takedown stand up for a 2-1 win. In the championship match against Warrior WC (ALA)’s Melton Powe, the wrestlers traded takedowns, but Hejke couldn’t get out from bottom in the third period, allowing Powe to escape with a 3-2 win.

Rizzuto ran into one of the Southeast’s top female lower-weight freestyle wrestlers in Enterprise (ALA)’s Evelyn Holmes-Smith, the eventual champ at 108 (she also won the 103 weight class), falling by superior victory (12-2 in 2:21).

But Rizzuto would rally at a time she needed it most against Lumpkin County (GA)’s Chloe Carver. In a wild first period that saw Carver take leads of 7-0 and 8-3 before Rizzuto scored four straight points and then securing a fall in 2:07 for the runnerup finish.

There weren’t many Floridians in the tournament, but you can view full brackets HERE.
