#Preview: 3A-Region 1 Duals at Olympia

3A-Region 1 Duals

When & where: Wednesday at Olympia, 4 p.m. (weighins), 5 p.m. (wrestle start). There is a listing on Track where box scores may be found live after competition begins (not all teams update in real-time or use these).
Teams in the field: Olympia (9-4), the District 4 champ, will wrestle District 3 runnerup Timber Creek (2-1 per last duals reported) in one quarterfinal round, while District 3 champ Hagerty (5-4) will wrestle Apopka (2-2) in the other. The two quarterfinal winners will then wrestle in the semis.
At stake: The team winning twice Wednesday will advance to the first day of the 3A state duals tournament at Osceola and compete against one of four teams from Districts 1 & 2 for the region championship. A time schedule has not been posted by the FHSAA, but 3A competitions have — if past years are any indicator — the third round of competition.
Most recent competition: Host Olympia was fourth at DeLand’s Bulldog Duals, while District 3 champion Hagerty was second only behind Lake Highland Prep at Lake Mary’s 33rd Ron Peters Tournament of Champions. Timber Creek contested at George Jenkins’ Eagle Duals last Saturday, while Apopka competed in Jensen Beach’s Cradle Cancer IBT, placing 23rd.
