#DailyRdp: 2/09 Duals

By MATMEN, Friday, 11:45 a.m.

JACKSONVILLE — After a subpar finish in last weekend’s Clay Rotary, Episcopal got back a couple more members of its projected post-season lineup midweek this week.

The result was a pair of double-digit wins Thursday night at Mandarin, as the Eagles (20-5) took down Interlachen, 71-6, and the host Mustangs, 61-18.

In the middle dual, Mandarin (4-13) also ran past the Putnam County Rams (5-16) on the Mustangs’ Senior Night, 66-12.

Double winners for Episcopal were William Adams (113), Levi Ritter (120/126, 2 pins), Turner Glenn (126/132, pin & tech), Cohen Chesser (138, pin), Baylor Maurer (145, 2 pins), Ben Blatt (152, pin & decision), Brennan Doherty (170, pin), Christian McGarity (182/195, 2 pins), Lawson Perry (195/220, pin & major) and Mark Rinaman (285, 2 pins).

Chance Wolffe (160) added a fall in the win over Interlachen as well for the Eagles.

Mandarin got two wins from Jaelen Simmons (220, pin), its lone double-winner. In the win over Interlachen, Anthony Battinelli (126), Antonio Ramos (145), Brendan Warren (152), Jaiden Taylor (160) and William Jackson (285) all won by fall, with Isaiah Diltz (160) taking a pin in the loss to Episcopal.

For Interlachen, Tony Ortiz (106, pin) was the team’s only double-winner; John Sanders (132) won by fall in the loss to the hosts.

For all three teams, Thursday’s tri-meet was the conclusion of their regular season. Mandarin will be at Fletcher for the 3A-District 1 meet and Interlachen will be at Palatka for the 1A-District 4 IBT on February 17, while Episcopal will host the 1A-District 3 IBT on the 18th.

Wekiva 45, Evans 16: At Wekiva, the host Mustangs picked up two-thirds of their points via forfeit wins in the lowers; the dual was otherwise tightly-contested.

Evan Charles (182) and Elijah Jean (220) both won by fall for Wekiva (record unknown due to missing results), while Charles Hall pushed through to a 15-14 win at 195.

For Evans (1-8), the Trojans had more contested wins (four) but couldn’t overcome the forfeits down low. Edward Guzman (160) and Liam Maynard (170) both won by fall, while Jean-Paul Cassamajor (9-4 at 152) and Jermael Paul (5-4 at 285) both took decisions.

Both teams have one more entry on their regular-season calendar, as both will compete on Saturday at the Ocoee HoF Mat Classic.

Union County 78, Keystone Heights 6: At Union County, the teams wrapped up their regular seasons on the Tigers’ Senior Night.

Union (17-15) won both of the contested matches that were staged, as Ethan Hancock (120) and Rodney Barnett (145) both took pins. Keystone Heights (3-13) got its points via a forfeit win; the Tigers took 11 of those.

Both teams will reconvene in Palatka on February 17 for the 1A-District 4 IBT.
