HUDSON — Not bad for a small group of boys from the heart of the country.
This weekend at the Fivay Duals at Fivay HS, Suwannee scrapped with nine different teams, largely from the larger northern Tampa suburban area, and came out of the weekend in fourth place with a 7-2 record in the tournament.
In pool competition, the Bulldogs (19-5 in duals for the season) took down Mitchell (65-6), Springstead (39-36), Plant (57-24), host Fivay (63-18), Wiregrass Ranch (56-15), Cypress Creek-Wesley Chapel (50-21) and Gulf (55-15), with only a loss to 3A’s Palm Harbor University (49-18). In the third-place dual, Suwannee fell to 2A Braden River, 54-27.
The Bulldogs forfeited two weights in each dual. Of the 12 wrestlers that dressed out for Suwannee over the weekend, 11 of them had .500 records or better. Nine had six wins or more, with seven winning seven or more; four were at least 8-1 and one ran the table to go 9-0.

Suwannee will go back into action on January 23, when the Bulldogs will go to nearby rival Columbia and compete in the one-day Tiger Duals.
THE ACE OF THE DAY
Junior Tyson Musgrove (138) was 9-0 for Suwannee, its lone unbeaten wrestler on the weekend. Musgrove had six pins, with falls over Mitchell, Springstead, Plant, Fivay, Wiregrass Ranch and Cypress Creek-Wesley Chapel. Musgrove also scored a 4-1 decision in the loss to Palm Harbor University, one of four such decisions against the long-time 3A power. Musgrove wrapped the weekend with two forfeit wins over Gulf and Braden River.
