#Preview: 1A-District 4 Duals

1A-District 4 Duals

When & where: Tuesday at Union County Middle School (located next door to high school). Start times: 10:30 a.m. (weighin), noon (wrestle).
Teams in the field: In addition to the host Tigers, Baker County, Baldwin, Beachside, Bishop Snyder, Florida Deaf & Blind, Interlachen, Keystone Heights, Palatka and Tocoi Creek may all compete, though there is not a requirement that teams compete.
At stake: Top two teams will advance to the 1A-Region 1 round on January 12. The district champ will host and wrestle the District 3 runnerup, while the district runnerup will wrestle the District 3 champ.
Synopsis: Back on December 8th, Baker defeated Union, 42-40, in a midweek dual that maybe foreshadowed how competitive the district final might be — assuming that both teams get that far, and given that they have the fullest lineups that could very well happen. Palatka should factor into the mix and both Tocoi Creek and first-year program Beachside could figure into the mix as well.
