#Preview: Parker Duals

By MATMEN, Friday, 4 p.m.

Parker Duals

When & where: Saturday at Terry Parker.
Teams in the field: According to my best information (which may not be very updated), in addition to the host Braves, Bishop Snyder, Palatka, Ponte Vedra and University Christian are scheduled to appear.
Defending champion: Last year’s champion, Fernandina Beach, is not returning.
Synopsis: This year, the participants have agreed to compete in roundrobin format, which might avoid the forfeits problem that this event has had in prior years (even last year, when it was duals). While there are a few talented individuals, most participants in this event most desperately need mat time, so a full-on roundrobin event is ideal for them.
