#Preview: MLK Girls Classic

By MATMEN, Sunday, 7:25 p.m.

MLK Girls Classic

When & where: Monday at Mainland.
Local teams in the field: In addition to the host Lady Buccaneers, we have schedule commits from Baker County, Keystone Heights, Lake Mary, Seminole, Stanton & Wekiva (NOTE: This list may need to be updated; we have not heard of additional local teams attending or any that have dropped this event).
Synopsis: Mainland held itself outside of the weekend’s action in part to prepare for hosting duties on Monday (I have a 9:30 weighin start, a projected 10 a.m. wrestle start). The Buccaneers are probably the strongest local team in the field (full field not available at this time), but Lake Mary and perhaps Seminole might have something to say about that.
Local state-ranked wrestlers (listed by weight class in ranked order) —
125: Brianna Pena (Seminole, 16th).
135: Jayda Rankin (Seminole, 20th).
145: Jah’Mya Hill (Mainland, 11th).
155: Trinya Tillman (Mainland, 18th).
190: Ramiyah Steele (Wekiva, 10th).
235: Cheyenne Wigley (Mainland, 3rd).
