The work continues. Because of course it does.
If you’ve been around a while, you’ve seen us do some things to talk about more of Florida wrestling besides the coverage area. We are therefore happy to start up — because we were worried we wouldn’t have time — our Records Updates for the remainder of 3A-Region 1 and 1A-Region 2.
We will alternate between 3A and 1A teams until we are done with 3A (which should be done first), then it will be just 1A going forward. With any luck, we’re done with these by October 1. Our fourth 1A team out of District 8 is Merritt Island.
Note: We will update this post when transfer wrestlers’ records are updated with their prior teams later on in the records update.
