#TheSeason2020-21: Gainesville

Hey guys!

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’re rolling through Round 6 with Gainesville. This is the third of what will be seven teams in this shortened round.

Win/loss record: 1-19 in dual meets reported to Matmen. Based upon Trackwrestling, and the records reported to the district traditional host, we were missing Gainesville’s results from the TD Talbott Legion duals tournament at Villages on February 13.

  • 8th at 2A-District 2, 2/20 (8 teams)
