Additionally, the Yellow Jackets got contested wins from Jaquan Whitty (fall at 285), Logan Brenner (injury default at 120), Brayden Lovingood (fall at 152), with a forfeit at 160.

WEEKEND DUALS

#Saylor: Fleming Overpowers Duals Field At Suwannee

Fleming Island wrestlers celebrate a title win in Saturday’s Billy Saylor Invitational at Suwannee (Photo submitted by Nikki Beck via Facebook).

LIVE OAK — Even short-handed, Fleming Island is still much more than a handful of trouble than most teams.

This past weekend at the Billy Saylor Duals in the Suwannee gym, the Golden Eagles showed just how much trouble they could bring the other teams in the field, as they hammered six teams in double-digit victories to win the team title.

Fleming Island (unknown season record) ran past Ft Walton Beach (55-21), Niceville (56-16), West Nassau (78-0), Ft Myers (47-31), Union County (72-6) and, in the effective championship dual, the host Bulldogs (64-12), good for an average margin of victory of 47.7 points per dual, with at least two wrestlers that were expected to be in the Fleming post-season lineup not competing.

That didn’t seem to matter over the weekend, as every Fleming Island starter won at least three times during the tournament.

Seven Golden Eagle starters were 6-0 for the tournament, with three of them — Jayce Paridon (113, 5 pins; tournament’s OW for lower-weight wrestlers); Laird Duhaylungsod (120, 6 pins) and Joshua Sandoval (170, 5 pins) — earning max points in every round that Fleming Island wrestled.

Three more wrestlers bonus-pointed through the weekend, as Shane Duhaylungsod (106, 3 pins & major), Kaden Schaefer (138, 2 pins & 3 TFs) and Jhoel Robinson (182/195, 5 pins & tech) all collected at least one bonus point in every round. Ronan Bozeman (160, pin, 2 majors & 2 decisions) was the seventh Golden Eagle to go 6-0.

Joshua Mukaddam (132, 2 pins & decision) and Matthew Kotler (145, 3 pins, tech & major) were both 5-1, with Dylan Beck (152, 3 pins), Walter Poe (182/195, pin) and Ladarius Jackson (220, pin & decision) all putting in 4-2 weekends. Ethan Myers (126, 3 pins) chipped in a 3-3 tournament as well for Fleming Island, in its final tuneup before the FHSAA 2A state duals tournament at Osceola this coming weekend.

Here’s a look at the rest of the tournament field:

Suwannee wrestlers and coaches with the Billy Saylor Duals runnerup trophy won Saturday on the Bulldogs’ home mat (Photo submitted via Suwannee team Facebook page).

Suwannee (unknown season record, 5-1 in event): The Bulldogs were second in the tournament with wins over Union County (70-12), West Nassau (71-10), Ft Walton Beach (38-37), Niceville (55-18) and Ft Myers (36-31), the last dual essentially being a faceoff for second.

Suwannee finished with three unbeaten wrestlers; turning in 5-0 records for the event were Austin McKinney (132, 3 pins & decision) and James Prentice (170, 4 pins). On Friday, Tyson Musgrove (145, pin/tech/major) turned in a 3-0 day.

Eli Jolicoeur (106, 2 pins & tech), Brody Boehm (126, 4 pins & decision) and Austin Howard (160, pin, tech & 2 majors) all were 5-1 for Suwannee, while Ayden Kirby (138/145, 3 pins) put in a 4-1 weekend for the Bulldogs.

Eleteurio Meria (285, pin & decision) was 4-2 on the weekend, while Topher Pearson (113/120, 3 pins), Christian Socorras (152, 2 pins & decision) and Christian Harrell (220, pin) each added 3-3 records during the course of the two days.

Niceville (14-9 for season, 3-2 in event): The Eagles were third in the standings behind wins over West Nassau (60-17), Ft Myers (42-34) and Union County (46-28).

There were no 5-0 Niceville wrestlers when the team left early Saturday, but Aidan Kyllonen (152, 4 pins) was unbeaten, going 4-0.

Harrisen Wall (182, 4 pins) was 4-1 on the weekend, while Colt Dannenmueller (138, pin & major) contributed a 3-1 tournament effort.

Additionally, Garrett Jarvis (120, 3 pins), Ethan Pinto (126, 2 pins & decision) and Asa Adams (285, pin) all were 3-2 during the weekend for the Eagles.

Ft Walton Beach (4-5 for season, 3-3 in event): The Vikings had dual victories over Godby (84-0), West Nassau (66-14) and Union County (63-18) in finishing the weekend at .500.

Ft Walton Beach had three wrestlers go 6-0 during the weekend, led by Spencer Mackenzie’s 6-0, four-pin max-point performance at 285.

The tournament also thought highly of the 6-0 weekend from Cedric Fairrow (220, 2 pins & decision), as Fairrow was named the OW for upper-weight wrestlers. Alexander Davidson (152, 4 pins/major/decision) joined Fairrow and Mackenzie as 6-0 unbeatens.

Darius Brundidge (170, 2 pins & decision) was 4-1, with Landon Burbidge (106, pin), Zak Vosburgh (113, 2 pins & decision), Connor Roberts (182, 3 pins) and Carter Tobik (195, pin) all recording 4-2 efforts. Marquis Muniz (160, pin) chipped in a 3-3 tournament for the Vikings.

Union County (3-8 for season, 2-5 in event): The Tigers took wins over Godby (66-12) and West Nassau (42-30) for their two victories in the tournament.

Caleb Crawford (160, 3 pins) led Union County with a 5-2 tournament weekend.

Ian Halfacre (132, major) and Ethan Shea (138, 3 pins) both added 4-3 performances for the Tigers.

West Nassau (unknown season record, 0-6 in event): The Warriors didn’t find a team win, with just seven wrestlers competing over both days, but did have some individual successes.

Blayden Tharpe (120, 3 pins, tech & major) was 5-1 over the weekend to lead the Warriors.

Jakob Turnage (170, 2 pins) and Nolan McKelvy (182, 2 pins & major) each added 3-3 weekends for West Nassau.

Godby (0-3 for season & event): The Cougars dressed three starters, drafting two extra Suwannee wrestlers that competed for the team on Friday; Godby only wrestled on the first day of the event.

#Trojan: Host Lincoln Takes Runnerup Spot

Lincoln wrestlers and coaches with the team’s runnerup trophy won Saturday at the Trojan Invitational (Photo submitted via Lincoln team Facebook page).

TALLAHASSEE — The wrong time to face a long-time wrestling power like Manatee is the Hurricanes’ next event after they were eliminated from the 3A-Region 2 quarterfinals on their home mat.

And Manatee took out the frustrations it had on its opponents Saturday at Lincoln’s Trojan Invitational, rolling through five opponents by double-digit margins to the win the title.

Host Lincoln gave the Hurricanes the closest battle they’d see all day, falling 42-30 in the final round. Earlier, the Trojans (7-2 in duals for the season) took wins over Leon (77-6), University Christian (83-0), Ponte Vedra (69-12) and Fletcher (47-27).

Joe Tucker (106, decision), Connor Edwards (152, 3 pins & decision; Outstanding Wrestler award), Cayden Bevis (195, pin & 2 techs) and Ryder Luck (220, pin & decision) also were all 5-0 for the Trojans.

Vaniel Caceres (113, 2 pins) and Zaire Fernanders-Jackson (138/145, pin & 2 decisions) were each 4-1, while Mason Crowder (160) was 3-0 in a regular role.

Here’s a look at the rest of the area teams —

Fletcher (unknown season record, 3-2 in event, 3rd): After opening with a 46-30 loss to Manatee, the Senators rolled past Leon (66-11) and University Christian (66-12), with a tournament-ending 60-17 win over Ponte Vedra.

Three Fletcher wrestlers were 5-0, with Cole O’Brien (126, 3 pins) the team’s lone max-pointer. Ryden Ashmore (120, 2 pins & 2 decisions) and Toby Matson (285, pin & decision) also won five timtes on the day.

Logan Locantora (106), Christopher Strong (152/160, 2 pins), Josh Daltro (160/170) and Joseph Kohlhaas (170/182, pin) each were 4-1 on the day for the Senators, while Dylan Tate (195, pin) turned in a 3-2 performance for Fletcher.

#Showdown: Hagerty Takes 2nd At Crosstown Rival Event

OVIEDO — Hagerty was a late add-on for Saturday’s Showdown in O-Town, jumping in at the last to help out crosstown rival and host Oviedo.

And the Huskies made the most of their opportunity, going 4-1 and placing second in the six-team Showdown. Hagerty opened with wins over Lake Howell (76-0), Bishop Moore (69-5), Rockledge (66-12) and the host Lions (66-12) before falling to another FHSAA region-finals qualifier, Merritt Island, 40-31, in the final round.

The event provided Hagerty (23-6 in duals for the season) a chance to knock some rust off and prepare for Friday’s 3A-Region 1 finals matchup against Flagler Palm Coast, set for 6 p.m. The winner of that dual enters the 3A state semis on Saturday at 10 a.m.

The Huskies had four wrestlers go 5-0 on the day, three of them as max-pointers, scoring 6 team dual points in every dual the team contested. Lochlann Higgins (113, 3 pins), Kamdon Harrison (160/170, 3 pins) and Hunter Tate (195, 2 pins) were the three max-pointers. Joining them at 5-0 was David Mejia (132/138, 3 pins & major), who bonus-pointed through the day.

Connor Gilliam (170/182, 4 pins) turned in a 4-0 day for Hagerty, while Austin St John (152, 2 pins) added a 3-0 tournament in a regular role.

Ethan Gomez (170/182, 3 pins), Landon Revis (220/285, 2 pins & decision) and Thad Elam (220/285, 3 pins) were each 4-1 and Jacob Genao (126/132, pin) 3-1 for the Huskies. Gavin Nelson (145, 3 pins) chipped in a 3-2 effort as well for Hagerty.

Here are reports on the other two teams in the coverage area that competed Saturday:

Oviedo (11-14 for season, 3-2 in event, 3rd): After opening with a 59-18 loss to the eventual champs, the Lions ran past Lake Howell (66-15) and Bishop Moore (70-12); after the loss to Hagerty, Oviedo claimed third with a 54-27 win over Rockledge.

Conner Rodriguez (106) was a 5-0 max-pointer to lead the Lions in team dual points scored, with 30.

Daniel Restrepo (113/120, major & decision) and Clayton Mitchell (138, 3 pins & decision) were both 4-1 for Oviedo, while Levi Thorpe (285, 2 pins) was 3-1.

Caden Martz (113/120, pin), James Chiaradio (160, 2 pins), Joey Gioa (182/195, 2 pins) and Yosef Mohaisem (220, 2 pins) all were 3-2 on the day for the Lions.

Lake Howell (2-9 for season, 0-5 in event, 5th): The shorthanded Silver Hawks had representation had just six weights, making dual wins difficult. Lake Howell, in addition to the losses noted above, fell to Merritt Island (83-0), Rockledge (48-9) and Bishop Moore (56-24).

Jayden Velazquez (195/220) was the only Lake Howell wrestler above .500 on the day, going 3-2 with 3 pins.

#Gator: War Eagles Win 5 1sts, Team Romps To Title

WEWAHITCHKA — Already considered the leading light of northwest Florida wrestling, Wakulla put on a dominant performance confirming that once again last weekend at the Gator Brawl.

The War Eagles held a substantial lead over runnerup Mosley, 381-243, when the event concluded into the evening Saturday night. Chiles, with 233 points, was third, while Crestview (184.5) and Rocky Bayou Christian (170) rounded out the top five.

Choctaw (165.5) was sixth and Rutherford (138) was eighth, followed by host Wewahitchka (124.5), Marianna (106.5), Bay (104.5), North Bay Haven (90), Liberty County (88.5), Milton (68), Bozeman (62.5), Arnold (35) and a small South Walton delegation (12.5; the main group competed elsewhere).

A breakdown of each weight class follows —

106: The War Eagles’ Julian Harvey won Pool A with four pins and two TFs; Harvey then added two more victories in the championship flight, with a fall over Waccamaw SC (3:18) in the semis, followed by an 8-5 decision over Mosley’s Derrick Williams in the final. Harvey set the pace early with three takedowns in the first two periods; while Williams got one of his own late in the the third, he couldn’t hold Harvey for long. Williams won Pool B with six pins and one TF, adding a seventh fall in the semis over Liberty County’s Keaton Ellis. Ellis powered past Waccamaw, 9-7, in the third-place match, with Wewa’s Jake Parker winning by forfeit over Choctaw’s Olivia Culpepper to claim fifth.

113: In a battle of the Browns, Liberty County’s Jay Brown made his return to the Wewahitchka mats a successful one, with four pins, a tech and major to win Pool A, then added two more bonus-point wins in the championship flight, first majoring Choctaw’s Deagan Kilpatrick (12-2) and then falling Wakulla’s Conner Brown in 4 minutes for the title. The early parts of the match were going the host Brown’s way, as he had a 3-pt turn in the first period and was up 9-0 before Jay Brown got a reversal that led to the fall. Conner Brown had six pins and a 6-4 decision to take Pool B, pinning teammate Anthony Fondo (1:37) in the championship semis. Kilpatrick shut out Fondo, 3-0, for third, with the Gators’ Tyler Johnson taking sixth after a loss by fall (:51) to Waccamaw.

120: Mosley’s Calvin Williams picked up his team’s first title, winning Pool B with six pins and a TF, then adding two more pins in the championship flight with a semifinal pin over Milton’s Dayton Williams (1:22) and a championship pin over the hosts’ David Culley (5:13). Williams had all the scoring moves in the match, with two first-period takedowns and a reversal early in the third before securing the fall. Culley, who’d lost (fall in 4:22) to Calvin Williams in pool as well, was 6-1 (4 pins/major/decision) to take second in the pool, then shut out Pool A champ Sam Tolomeo of Chiles, 4-0, in the championshp flight semi. Tolomeo came back with a fall (2:48) over Milton’s Williams for third, with Bay’s Leonardo Sanchez falling Liberty County’s Hunter Brown for fifth.

126: Chiles’ Garrett Marschka won his second Gator Brawl title and eclipsed the 100-wins career mark, pinning his way through the weekend. Marschka posted a 7-0 record in winning Pool A, then falled the hosts’ Juan Jimenez in 4:48 for the title. During the match, Marschka had takedowns in the first and third periods; while Jimenez was able to ride in the second, he also couldn’t secure a turn, while Marschka had the advantage on the feet. Jimenez was 8-0 with seven pins and major to win Pool B. Waccamaw wrestlers were third and fourth, with Choctaw’s Jacob Johns pushing past North Bay Haven’s Tristan Le, 5-3, for fifth.

132: Like Marschka at 126, Wakulla’s Isaiah Wilson pinned his way through the tournament for the War Eagles’ second bracket win. Wilson had seven pins to win Pool A, adding an eighth in the final against Rocky Bayou Christian’s Luke Latham, in 5:07. Latham’s mid-period takedown in the first netted him a 2-0 lead that he held for most of the match, but Wilson tied it at 2-2 with a takedown with 1:05 left and 12 seconds later secured the fall. Latham had seven pins and a 6-4 decision to go 8-0 and win Pool B. Chiles’ Hunter Brown, the only Pool B competitor to extend Latham to six minutes, came back for third with a 4-0 win over Wakulla’s Nate Jacobs, while Chiles’ Ethan Jackson turned back the War Eagles’ Bricyn Kennedy, 3-1, for fifth.

138: After rolling through Pool B with seven pins and a TF, Rutherford’s Romero Black added an eighth pin in the final, falling the hosts’ Wyatt Welch in 5:16. Black never trailed in the match, with a first-period takedown late in the period. Black added a second one midway through the third period and that was enough to build a falling combination from there. Welch won Pool B with seven pins and a TF. Rocky Bayou’s Ethan Heathershaw was third, with a walkover forfeit over Waccamaw, while Chiles’ Jacob Johnston pinned the hosts’ Wesley Spencer in 2:03 for fifth.

145: Wakulla’s Hayden Reeves bonus-pointed through the tournament, winning Pool A with four pins and a major. In the championship flight, Reeves pinned his way through the bracket, with falls over Rocky Bayou’s Owen Parry (4:41, quarters), Crestview’s Marc Beaurivage (1:39, semis) and over the hosts’ Conner Roberts (2:52) for the War Eagles’ third bracket win. Roberts, who went over the 100-wins career mark during the weekend, was 4-1 for second in Pool A and the only wrestler to extend Reeves to six minutes. Roberts then pinned Mosley’s Landon Jacobs (2:46) and majored Bay’s Corban Cherry, 9-1, to reach the final. Cherry pinned Beaurivage in 2:26 for third and Parry falled Jacobs in 1:23 for fifth.

152: Mosley’s Nick Hejke also bonus-pointed through the tournament for the Dolphins’ second title of the weekend. Hejke had three pins, a forfeit and a 12-0 major to win Pool A, following a similar path in the championship flight. There, Hejke took pins over NBH’s Julian Hernandez (:50, quarters) and Waccamaw (2:40, semis), shutting out Wakulla’s Jae T Thaxton, 10-0 for the title. Hejke scored in each period, with turns in both the first and second periods as well. Thaxton was 4-0 (3 pins & major) to win Pool B, with a quarterfinal pin (1:04) over Crestview’s Christian Brito and an 8-4 win over Chiles’ Andrew Mullins in the semi. Mullins fell, 7-6, to Waccamaw in the third-place match, while the War Eagles’ Landon Mulphurs falled Brito in 1:45 for fifth.

160: Rutherford’s Keaton Schirmer gave the Rams their second title, bonus-pointing through the weekend. Schirmer won Pool B with a 4-0 record, all wins by pin; after a 15-2 major in the quarters over Marianna’s Trett Phillips, Schirmer would add two more falls, over Mosley’s Andrew Yeats (1:38) in the semis and again in the final over Chiles’ Luke Pickels (1:12). Schirmer scored a takedown 10 seconds in and kept up the aggression from there in the title match. Pickels had four pins and an 11-10 decision to win Pool A, adding championship-flight falls over Bay’s Nicholas Wood (:15, quarters) and Crestview’s Landon Davis (3:07, semis). Yeats rallied from the loss to Schirmer for third, pinning Phillips in 3:47, while Wakulla’s Zabdiel Garcia-Esquilin took fifth with a 5-2 win over Davis.

170: The War Eagles’ Daniel Brattain was second in Pool B, with a 4-1 record that included two pins, a med forfeit and decision, but won his last six matches in taking the title, with championship-flight pins over Waccamaw (:24, quarters), Pool A champ Kadis Nafal (2:17, semis), plus a 7-3 win over Rocky Bayou Christian’s Peyton Andersen for the championship. Brattain had a pair of turns in the second period to build a 7-0 lead, making that stand up. Like Brattain, Andersen was second in Pool A (4-1, 4 pins), with an injury-default win over Choctaw’s Samuel Santos (quarters) and fall over Crestview’s Layne Franks (4:32, semis). Franks had two pins in the consis, falling Nafal in 54 seconds for third, while Santos pinned Waccamaw in 4:33 for fifth.

182: In a full eight-person roundrobin, Wakulla’s Tyler Edenfield bonus-pointed through the field, winning the War Eagles’ fifth title behind five pins, a third-period 16-0 TF (4:32) and a forfeit. Edenfield’s tech fall over Crestview’s Salvador Gallegos in round 5 was the effective championship match, as Gallegos otherwise was 6-1 with five pins and a forfeit, finishing second. In that round, Edenfield had scoring moves in each period, racking up four turns as well to secure the tech. Marianna’s Marquis Patterson-Rhodes was third, pinning the War Eagles’ Sultan Ellington (:56) for the effective 3rd-place match, with Mosley’s John Mengel fifth and Rutherford’s Tyler Hall sixth.

195: In a seven-person roundrobin, North Bay Haven’s David Mercado bonus-pointed through the tournament, going 6-0 with five pins and a first-period TF (19-4 in 2 minutes). Mercado’s round-7 fall (2:29) over Chiles’ Dillon Elliott was the effective championship match, as Elliott was also 5-0 going into that match, with four pins and a 12-3 major. That round saw Mercado earn two first-period takedowns and a 3-point turn, with the third takedown, in the second period, leading ultimately to the pin. Rocky Bayou’s Jeremiah O’Sullivan falled Mosley’s Andre Trice in 2:41 for effective third, also in round 7, while Crestview’s Andrew Russ was fifth and Arnold’s Bryan Beard sixth.

220: Choctaw’s Caden McKinney won his team’s lone title, taking Pool A with a 5-0 record (4 pins & decision), adding a fifth fall in the championship flight semis (1:24) over Wakulla’s Herschel Blackmon, followed by a 5-3 decision in the final over the War Eagles’ Kohl Pippen. Trailing, 1-0, early in the third period, McKinney got untracked, with a reversal followed shortly thereafter by a 3-point nearfall, which proved to be enough for the win. Pippen won Pool B with a 6-0 record, with three pins, a medical forfeit and two decisions. He then pushed past teammate Aaron Caquimbo, 5-3, in the top flight semis to get to McKinney. Blackmon pinned Caquimbo in 21 seconds for third place, with Crestview’s Caleb Sims falling Waccamaw in 1:25 to claim fifth.

285: Mosley’s Robert Wills gave the Dolphins their third title, as he pinned his way through the weekend. Wills had seven falls in taking first in Pool B, adding two more with a fall over Rutherford’s Edward Johnson (1:19) in the championship semis and a subsequent pin (2:24) over Choctaw’s Chase Pelfrey in the final. Pelfrey had the first takedown and led, 2-1, early in the second, but Wills’ ride was too strong, as he secured the pin. Wills had earlier falled Pelfrey in 2:17 in the final round of Pool B, where Pelfrey was 6-1 with six pins. Pelfrey then pinned Choctaw teammate Roman Jackson, the Pool A champ, in 1:22 in the semis. Jackson bounced back with a fall over Johnson in 2:20 for third, with Milton’s Kyle Flores falling Wakulla’s Adleigh Caquimbo in 4:25 for fifth.

#Wolfpack: Creekside Takes Challenge With Team Victory

Creekside wrestlers with the Wolfpack Challenge team championship trophy won Saturday at Wolfson (Photo submitted by Rick Marabell).

JACKSONVILLE — A loss in the 3A-Region 1 quarterfinals, at home no less, was not how Creekside wanted to remember this past weekend.

Instead, the Knights will look to the 70.5-point margin of victory they amassed Saturday at Wolfson’s Wolfpack Challenge.

Creekside finished with 11 top-3 individual efforts (including two weight-class wins), scoring 255.5 points, well ahead of runnerup Bishop Kenny, which finished with 185 points, eight top-3s and two titles.

Episcopal was third with 171 points, followed by Bartram Trail in fourth (149) and Matanzas fifth (142.5).

Creekside B was sixth with 99 points, followed by host Wolfson (71), Tocoi Creek (62), Stanton (51), Bishop Snyder (50), Paxon (27), Atlantic Coast & Riverside (each with 26) and Bolles (23).

Below follows a breakdown of each weight class —

106: Episcopal’s Turner Glenn pinned his way through the bracket, with a fall in the final (1:52) over Creekside’s Andrew Feeks. Prior to the final, Glenn had a bye into the quarters, where he then pinned Tocoi’s Adarins Medina (3:13) and then Wolfson’s Tristian Martinez (5:53, semis). Feeks had a bye into the semis, where he pinned Bartram Trail’s Chase Newmans (1:20) to reach the final. Martinez (front-side pin) won twice in the consis for third, with a major decision and a forfeit over Medina in the third-place match.

Earlier, Harless downed Creekside B’s Luke Dixon by a 6-1 count, while Spurlin, who also had a bye into the semis, pinned Creekside’s Alex Panganiban (1:26) in that round. Panganiban (front-side pin) had bonus points in both of his consi-side wins with a pin and then a TF over teammate Dixon for third.

120: Bartram Trail’s Ethan Vugman, after a bye into the quarters, pinned his way through the weight class for the title, with his third pin in the final over Bolles’ Jacob Witt (1:17). Earlier, Vugman had falls over Bishop Kenny’s Noah Ossi (2:36, quarters) and Creekside’s Jacob Stover (2:28, semis).

138: After a pair of first-period falls, Creekside’s Keanan Sexton won the bracket with a decision victory over Bishop Kenny’s Jack Raynor.

#LadyPirate: Hosts Win Second Straight IBT Title

PALM COAST — For the second straight week, the Matanzas Lady Pirates have won an IBT event.

Saturday’s win of their own Lady Pirate Classic had a little bit more cushion to it than the previous win at Lake Mary, where Matanzas edged Dr Phillips by a single point. This time, the Lady Pirates had a 30.5-point edge over runnerup Mainland, 115.5-85.

Ponte Vedra, with 84 points, was third, with Tocoi Creek (59.5) and Clay (55) rounding out the top five teams.

University (Orange City) was sixth (53), followed by Hagerty (51), Bartram Trail (49), Oakleaf (26), Creekside (17), Middleburg (13), Flagler Palm Coast (seven) and Dunnellon (six).

115: In a five-person roundrobin, Ponte Vedra’s Erin Rizzuto pinned her way through the weight class to win the title with a 4-0 mark.

Ponte Vedra’s Sophia Mallon was 2-2 with two pins to take third, with Bartram’s Vanessa Stobe falling Flagler’s Jamie Rupe in 3:58 in round 4 to settle the fourth and fifth spots.
