We are up to our 83rd schedule thus far.
Another one from Brant, this time directly funneled (the Wolfpack recently changed coaches, which we did not know). It is our last schedule for 3A area teams and our last team needed from Marion County. It’s also the last area team that we needed that is south of Interstate 10. THREE LEFT!
The Wolfpack begin the season with a trip to nearby Weeki Wachee for its two-day duals tournament, held on its traditional opening weekend of the season, which this year is December 6-7. Next up for West Port, they’ll switch over to IBT format, going to Hernando for the Hernando Kiwanis on the 13th and 14th. The third weekend will see the Wolfpack staying in IBT mode, as they go to Spring Hill for Springstead’s Corey Hill Memorial on the 20th and 21st. After that, West Port will break for the holidays.
January kicks off with West Port going to Columbia for its two-day Tiger Duals on the 3rd and 4th. After a midweek home dual with Weeki Wachee on the 8th, next will be the 3A-District 2 duals at University-Orange City (the Wolfpack listed this as the 10th, but I have it from UOC on the 9th), with the possibility of Region 1 duals at the District 1 champ’s home gym on the 16th and state duals on the 24th and 25th. West Port’s next regular-season event will be at a two-day tournament hosted by Hudson (I’m not sure what the format will be for that event) on the 17th and 18th. The Wolfpack then will host Forest on the 23rd (Forest’s schedule, sent previously, had said the 22nd) and will travel to Weeki Wachee for an away midweek dual on the 29th.
February wrestling for West Port will start with the Marion County Conference meet at home on the 5th. That weekend, the Wolfpack will travel to nearby county rival Belleview’s Diamondback Duals on the 7th and 8th, closing out the regular season.
West Port has committed to a substantial girls’ schedule, with the Women’s Titan Clash at district rival University-Orange City on December 6, at St Cloud on the 14th and Matanzas’ Lady Pirate Invitational on the 21st. In January, the Wolfpack girls will go to Dr Phillips for the Lady Panther IBT on the 11th and the Lady Bear Classic at Cypress Creek on the 18th, as well as girls’ state at Dr Phillips on the 14th and 15th.
So. That’s 83 schedules. 95% PLUS complete. Two from the Panhandle. One from the north-central part of the coverage area. We need more. We could use YOUR SCHOOL’S SCHEDULE. Question is…WHO’S NEXT???
