The work continues. We are bringing back, for its seventh year, #TheSeason. We didn’t do these first year, but have ever since. It’s something nobody else does. We compile all season records and write a wrapup for each team. To get them completed more quickly, we are summarizing these a bit more than in seasons past.
Today, we are back on the downhill side of Round 3, with DeLand.
You can see everything I have on the Bulldogs in 2020-21 here –> DELAND
Win/loss record: 10-12 in dual meets reported to Matmen. We were missing several duals results — all of their Showdown duals at Oviedo, three of their five in their home duals tournament, and then two sets of tri-meets/quads in late January/early February. Hopefully we do better next season.

Zander Laurin Warrior: Isaiah Swint
- After 0-4 start, won five of his next eight matches that were recorded with us
- From Oviedo onward, hit some snags, with just three wins (at least two by forfeit), down the stretch
- Nevertheless, kept on battling, even taking a shot at wrestling for fifth at districts to help team score points and maybe have a shot at regions
