#Preview: 2A-Region 2 Duals at Winter Springs

2A-Region 2 Duals

When & where: Thursday at Winter Springs, 5 p.m. (weighin), 6 p.m. (wrestle start).
Teams in the field: Winter Springs, the District 8 champ, will wrestle District 7 runnerup Gateway in one quarterfinal round, while District 7 champ (and state defending champ) Lake Gibson will wrestle Deltona (8-3) 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 2A state duals tournament at Osceola and compete against one of four teams from Districts 5 & 6 for the region championship. A time schedule has not been posted by the FHSAA, but 2A competitions have — if past years are any indicator — been the second (mid-afternoon) round of competition.
Most recent competition: Deltona competed Wednesday night in an away dual at University (Orange City), taking a 42-38 victory.
