(EDIT: Updated with Fleming kids’ results with Indiana Outlaws Black).
We’ve got several folks competing this weekend!
Here’s a roundup of what I’ve been able to find. Two local wrestlers will be competing on Monday for certain:
NHSCA NATIONAL DUALS:
In the high school girls’ division, Matanzas’ Christina Borgmann (126) will wrestle Monday with POWA, which was 3-0 in championship-round competition on Sunday. Borgmann had two decisions (1-0 & 7-0) and a fall in 2:05 in three matches.
Meanwhile, in the high school boys’ division, Yulee’s Alex Smith (195) also is in line to compete on Monday (he did miss two rounds of championship-pool competition Sunday) with Team Kong United. Smith fell by a 7-0 count in his lone match; his team won three times.
One full area team, Black Hive, wrapped up consi-side pool competition on Sunday with a 1-2 record in Pool T. Black Hive defeated Florida PAL Tropics, 38-30, with losses to The Fort Hammers (39-24) and West Geauga (41-36).
Four Black Hive wrestlers — Matthew Pishotta (106, tech), Amir Hill (113, 2 pins & decision), Cole O’Brien (138, 2 pins & decision) and Thomas Jones (220, 2 pins & major) — were all 3-0. Malachi Mista (182) won by fall twice, while Elias Twigg (145) and Malik Wilson (195) had decision victories over West Geauga. In the win over FL Tropics, Elias Spurlin (132) had a fall, while Seth Mleczynski (120) took a major and Kyle Brown (126) won by decision.
The only other wrestler to go 3-0 individually on Sunday, besides Borgmann, was Matanzas’ Kendall Bibla (145), who had three pins in consi Pool A with Valley Vixxens, a team that also won all three of its duals.
Two Matanzas wrestlers were 2-1 Sunday. On the boys’ side, TJ McLean (113) earned a 14-2 major and a 9-4 decision for Ground Up USA in boys’ HS consi pool V, taking only a 9-6 loss, while Tiana Fries (132), wrestling in girls’ championship pool C with Indiana Outlaws Pink, had two pins (3:11 & 1:05) and a 15-2 loss.
At 1-2 on Sunday were Matanzas teammates Brielle Bibla (138) and Mariah Mills (106), competing for different teams in different divisions. Bibla had a 7-2 win, along with two decision losses, while competing for Illinois Cornstars-Bebe (was 0-3 in championship pool C in the HS girls division), while Mills had a forfeit win, along with losses by decision and pin, while wrestling in the HS boys’ division for Ground Up USA. Also competing for Ground Up USA was Matanzas’ Mike Fries (138), who was 0-3 on Sunday.
In championship Pool U, Indiana Outlaws Black — with three Fleming Island wrestlers — was 3-1 on the day (record includes a fourth dual wrestled off-pool). Kaden Schaefer (145, pin & major) and Christopher Chop (170, 2 pins) were both 2-2 on the day, while Walter Poe (195, pin) was 1-3.
The lone area middle-schooler that we know of, Kevin McLean, competed in consi-round pool competition for Shore Thing Beach, which was 2-1 as a team Sunday. McLean was 2-1 with two pins and a 10-8 decision loss.
USAW SOUTHEAST REGIONAL:
At the Cherokee Convention Center in Cherokee NC, Westside’s Karla Ortiz won four times by pin to claim 1st place in the 152-lb girls’ junior freestyle division.
In 16-under girls’ FS competition, Middleburg’s Memphis Moses (112) placed fourth.
