We’ll come back to FSDB and The Season hopefully some time today. My energy comes in fits and starts. When I work out, my writing ability tires. When I loaf and don’t go to the gym, I get a lot of Matmen work done.

Here’s some weekend results…

At Farmington, NM, for the Aztec Warrior Championships, Matthew Rodriquez (Ridgeview) won the 15-under division 102-pound weight class title. Rodriquez had four pins and a 13-0 major decision en route to the victory, with fall times in :36, :28, 2:41 and 27 seconds in the finals. That tournament was staged last Friday at McGee Park Coliseum.

At Father Devine (staged at Osceola last Saturday)…

Angelo Philpot (Westside/Pin N Win) took first in the 160-pound weight class, Cadet division, at Father Devine for freestyle last weekend. Philpot was 3-0 with a pin (2:21 over Gladiator’s Christian Llauger) and two tech falls (13-3 over Garage Boyz/Girlz’ Marco Guzman, 12-0 over Gladiator’s Armando Hurtado in the final).

Mario Powers (Nease HS) was third at 182 for Cadets in freestyle. Powers was 0-2 with a 14-4 tech fall loss and loss by fall in 1:37. Powers also took second at 182 for Cadets in Greco-Roman. Powers had a fall (5:37 over Venom’s Alejandro Gonzalez) and two losses (both to Gonzalez, the tiebreaking third match by 14-8 decision).

Ethan Gustilo (Oakleaf Spartans) took third at 145 pounds in the Junior division for Greco-Roman. After a quarterfinal loss to eventual champ Shannon Hanna of Lake Gibson (13-3), Gustilo didn’t lose again, with an injury-default win, two techs (12-2 over Citrus’ Roderick Bruce, 14-2 over Lake Gibson’s Curtis Felton) and a 22-second pin over Oak Ridge’s Jean Voltaire Faustin for third.

Valois Ochoa (First Coast/Pin N Win) was third at 195 in the Junior division for freestyle. Ochoa was 0-2 with a pair of 10-0 tech fall losses.
