Our third email “blast” sent to coaches has resulted in a flurry of email, several little changes to the schedule, and the first of what should be a few schedule submissions. Bartram Trail is our sixth set of dates out of 2A-District 4 — looking squarely at you, Paxon — and 43rd overall.
The Bears open with a home dual on December 5 against county and district rival Ponte Vedra, then will hop on 210 over to 95 for a short road-trip to Matanzas for that district rival’s one-day duals tournament, the Matanzas Duals, on the 8th. Bartram will stay in duals for the rest of the month, competing in Orange Park’s Raider 6-Way on the 14th, a rare Friday night dual tournament, and then going back to Clay County for the St Johns River Conference tournament on the 21st and 22nd at the Clay County Fairgrounds, hosted by Fleming Island.
Bartram’s first IBT of the season will kick off January, as the Bears will travel to Lake Mary for that school’s Tournament of Champions, a two-day IBT event with a lot of Orlando-area firepower, on the 4th and 5th. The Bears also plan to send wrestlers to Episcopal’s one-day IBT, the Rob Bierbaum Invitational, on the 5th. FHSAA 2A-District 4 team duals are set for the 12th at Nease, with the possibility of region quarters/semis on the 17th. The next regular-season event — and last one for the month — will involve a trip to Lincoln’s one-day IBT, the Trojan Invitational, on the 19th.
There’s three regular-season dates planned in February for the Bears, two of those being their traditional stops at the Rotary IBTs, first the Flagler Rotary at Flagler Palm Coast on 1st and 2nd, and then the Green Cove Springs Rotary at Clay on the 8th and 9th. Bartram Trail will wrap up the regular season with an away dual at Buchholz on the 13th.
So that’s 43 schedules in hand. Which school is going to be NEXT??
