#Preview: Trojan Invitational

By MATMEN, Friday, 4 p.m.

Trojan Invitational

When & where: Saturday at Lincoln.
Teams in the field: In addition to the host Trojans, Clay, Leon and Nease will be attending. Two teams from Manatee will also make the trip.
Defending champion: Lincoln.
Synopsis: There’ll be at least two good duals for Clay and Lincoln to take from Saturday — the one between each other and the one with Manatee, and Nease, as well, will offer up several individuals that will get much-needed competition against different faces. The event is smaller than in past years.
