Inaugural Lady Trojan Invitational
When & where: Saturday at Lincoln.
Teams in the field: In addition to the host Lady Trojans, Chiles, Crestview, Fletcher, Florida High, North Bay Haven, Sandalwood, Stanton and Wewahitchka will be sending teams.
Defending champion: None.
Returning individual champions: None.
Synopsis: With 44 girls listed on Trackwrestling as of Friday late afternoon, I’d expect weights to be blocked; if there’s a team favorite, having the most in the lineup, as Lincoln has, would help the hosts. But Crestview’s group was impressive in winning the inaugural Mulligan girls’ event last weekend at Bay; if there’s a team title to grab, look for the Lady Bulldogs to take it.
