#Preview: Clay Rotary (Girls)

By MATMEN, Friday, 5 p.m.

Clay Rotary (Girls)

When & where: Saturday at Clay.
Teams in the field: In addition to the host Lady Blue Devils, delegations from Baker County, Bartram Trail, Beachside, Buchholz, Ed White, Flagler Palm Coast, Fletcher, Middleburg, Mosley, Nease, North Bay Haven, Oakleaf, Orange Park, Pedro Menendez, Ponte Vedra, Raines, Ridgeview, Sandalwood, Stanton, St Augustine & Tocoi Creek could be in the tournament field; from outside the coverage area, Hernando will compete as well.
Defending team champion: Ponte Vedra.
Returning individual champions: Gracie Bradshaw (Middleburg); Erin Rizzuto (Ponte Vedra); Aubrianna Apple (Clay); Olivia Richie (Ponte Vedra); Katherine Stewart (Bartram Trail); Jasmine Hecht (Orange Park); Henlee Haynes (Mosley, if able to compete).
Synopsis: Could be quite the spirited fight between Middleburg, Ponte Vedra, and Oakleaf from a team standpoint, and don’t think Hernando won’t be in that mix also. Should be several teams with individual competitors that will factor deeply into the mix at their weight classes; it will certainly take a lot longer to complete wrestling this year. Expect several good finals matches.
