THE VILLAGES — Suwannee had one last duals tournament left in them for 2021-22.

And the Bulldogs made the most of it Saturday, with five double-digit wins to close their season record out at 49-7 and win the T.D. Talbott Legion Duals championship.

Suwannee had dual victories over Forest (69-6), Tavares (63-6), Heritage (49-27), Citrus (45-28) and host Villages, 45-24, in the final.

Five Bulldog wrestlers were 5-0 on the day. Of those, three were max-pointers, scoring 6 team dual points in each dual the team wrestled, and one — Topher Pearson (113/120) — pinned his way thorugh the tournament, with five pins in 7:37 of combined mat time.

Brody Boehm (126, 4 pins) and James Prentice (170, 4 pins & injury default) were the other two Suwannee max-pointers, while Eli Jolicoeur (106, 2 decisions) and Austin Howard (160, 3 pins & decision) joined them as 5-0 unbeatens.

Austin McKinney (132, 4 pins) and Tyson Musgrove (152, pin & major) were both 4-1 on the day. Justin Contreras (113/120, pin & 2 decisions), Marshall White (145, 2 pins) and Torynn Johns (182/195, pin) each put in 3-1 tournaments.

Additionally, Ayden Kirby (138, 2 pins & decision) and Christian Harrell (220, 2 pins) were both 3-2 for the Bulldogs.

Forest box scores, other than against Suwannee, were not available at the time of this writing. Belleview was also scheduled to contend at this meet, per both paper and Trackwrestling schedules, and their box scores are also not available at the time of this writing.

For all three teams, reported duals or no, their regular seasons are all complete. Belleview is first back on the mat, with an appearance at the 2A-District 4 IBT at Matanzas on Wednesday. Both Forest and Suwannee will wrestle on Friday, with the Bulldogs hosting 1A-District 2 tournament action and Forest at Buchholz for the 3A-District 2 IBT.

HUDSON — There’s always been at least one or two trips over to the Gulf for Suwannee under John Wainwright.

And, after taking second at Weeki Wachee to kick off the season, the Gulf proved to be good hunting for the Bulldogs, as they dominated the scene at the Hudson Duals over the weekend.

Suwannee (43-9 in duals for the season) went 9-0 on the weekend, with five wins Friday and four more Saturday. The Bulldogs took down River Ridge (59-18), Osceola-Pinellas Park (70-6), Admiral Farragut (67-6), Lecanto (69-12) and host Hudson (48-25).

All but one Suwannee full-time starter won at least six matches over the course of the weekend, led by max-pointer Brody Boehm (126, 7 pins), who was one of five Bulldog wrestlers to go unbeaten in full-time starting roles.

Three others were 9-0, with Topher Pearson (113, 5 pins, tech & decision), Austin McKinney (132, 4 pins & 3 decisions) and Ayden Kirby (138, 4 pins, tech & 2 decisions) also running the table. Additionally, Tyson Musgrove (152, 7 pins & major) was unbeaten, going 8-0.

Justin Contreras (120, 4 pins, major & 2 decisions), James Prentice (160/170, 4 pins) and Dustin Wood (182, 6 pins & decision) each were 8-1, with Austin Howard (160/170, 6 pins & tech) turning in a 7-1 weekend.

#Gorman: NSB Takes 3rd At Charlotte

PUNTA GORDA — In the quest to build a program, travel to find good — and somewhat unfamiliar — competition is essential.

In that spirit, New Smyrna Beach made the long drive across the state for Charlotte’s Gene Gorman Showcase two-day duals event, taking third with a 6-2 record on the weekend.

The Barracudas (21-5 in duals on the season) were 4-1 in Friday’s first day, with wins over Pinellas Park (72-3), Mariner (43-42 in criteria), Barron Collier (42-35) and Ft Myers (49-27), falling only to the host Tarpons, 72-6.

On Saturday, New Smyrna Beach opened with wins over Port Charlotte (51-30) and Venice (37-36) before falling to tournament runnerup and 1A state champion Jensen Beach, 56-18.

Individually, the Barracudas were led by Jamey Bruner (126), who was 7-1 with three pins and a decision.

Six NSB wrestlers had five wins on the weekend, as Jace Engberg (138/145, 5 pins) was 5-2, with Jonathon Bruner (120, 2 pins & major), Simjay Engberg (132, 3 pins & decision), Aidan Sutton (138/145, 3 pins), Sawyer Vanrider (182, 3 pins & major) and Dylon York (195, 4 pins & decision) all recording 5-3 tournaments.

Beau Laye (113, 2 pins), Austin Mitchum (220, 2 pins & decision) and Cole Billings (285, pin) were each 4-4 for the Barracudas, with Richard Crunkilton (106, pin) going 3-2 on the first day.

#Parker: No Full Lineup, No Problem For Pirates

JACKSONVILLE — Even short-handed as it was Saturday, Fernandina was more than a match — too much of one — for the rest of the eight-team field at Saturday’s Parker Duals, hosted by Terry Parker.

Despite dressing just 11 wrestlers, the Pirates took double-digit wins against the four opponents put in front of them, rolling past Ponte Vedra (46-24), Palatka (42-29), Terry Parker (48-24), and, in a crossover dual, Ridgeview (51-23) that served as an unofficial “championship” match of the tournament (no trophies were awarded), as both teams entered at 3-0.

Cael Kubatzke (120, 2 pins), Cole Misciagna (145, 3 pins), Enzo Gamba (160, pin), Brooks Rohe (170, 2 pins) and Lucas Crawford (182, 2 pins) each were 4-0 for the Pirates (12-6 in duals for the season.

#SCHS: Lake Brantley, Ocoee Turn In Solid Days On Coast

Lake Brantley wrestlers and coaches with the team’s runnerup trophy won Saturday in Cocoa at Space Coast’s Duals at SCHS event (Photo submitted via team Facebook page).

COCOA — With the initially-scheduled Barracuda Duals having to be cancelled due to New Smyrna Beach’s qualification for the 2A state duals two-day tournament this past weekend, teams in the event had to scramble a bit.

Space Coast wound up taking over the event, moving it further down the coast, and two area teams — Lake Brantley and Ocoee — competed in the 2022 Duals at SCHS one-day event on Saturday.

Joining Higgins with 5-0 records Saturday were Dario Duany (132, 2 pins & tech), Sebastian Rodriguez (152/160, 2 pins & 2 decisions) and Giovanni Duany (160/170, 4 pins & major).

The Huskies (27-9 in duals for the season) won the Purple pool with wins over George Jenkins (66-11), host Celebration (72-12), Cypress Creek (48-35) and Tohopekaliga (72-6), with every starter that wrestled more than once earning at least three wins.

#Saylor: Fleming Overpowers Duals Field At Suwannee

Fleming Island wrestlers celebrate a title win in Saturday’s Billy Saylor Invitational at Suwannee (Photo submitted by Nikki Beck via Facebook).

LIVE OAK — Even short-handed, Fleming Island is still much more than a handful of trouble than most teams.

This past weekend at the Billy Saylor Duals in the Suwannee gym, the Golden Eagles showed just how much trouble they could bring the other teams in the field, as they hammered six teams in double-digit victories to win the team title.

Fleming Island (unknown season record) ran past Ft Walton Beach (55-21), Niceville (56-16), West Nassau (78-0), Ft Myers (47-31), Union County (72-6) and, in the effective championship dual, the host Bulldogs (64-12), good for an average margin of victory of 47.7 points per dual, with at least two wrestlers that were expected to be in the Fleming post-season lineup not competing.

That didn’t seem to matter over the weekend, as every Fleming Island starter won at least three times during the tournament.

Seven Golden Eagle starters were 6-0 for the tournament, with three of them — Jayce Paridon (113, 5 pins; tournament’s OW for lower-weight wrestlers); Laird Duhaylungsod (120, 6 pins) and Joshua Sandoval (170, 5 pins) — earning max points in every round that Fleming Island wrestled.

Three more wrestlers bonus-pointed through the weekend, as Shane Duhaylungsod (106, 3 pins & major), Kaden Schaefer (138, 2 pins & 3 TFs) and Jhoel Robinson (182/195, 5 pins & tech) all collected at least one bonus point in every round. Ronan Bozeman (160, pin, 2 majors & 2 decisions) was the seventh Golden Eagle to go 6-0.

Joshua Mukaddam (132, 2 pins & decision) and Matthew Kotler (145, 3 pins, tech & major) were both 5-1, with Dylan Beck (152, 3 pins), Walter Poe (182/195, pin) and Ladarius Jackson (220, pin & decision) all putting in 4-2 weekends. Ethan Myers (126, 3 pins) chipped in a 3-3 tournament as well for Fleming Island, in its final tuneup before the FHSAA 2A state duals tournament at Osceola this coming weekend.

Here’s a look at the rest of the tournament field:

Suwannee wrestlers and coaches with the Billy Saylor Duals runnerup trophy won Saturday on the Bulldogs’ home mat (Photo submitted via Suwannee team Facebook page).

Suwannee (unknown season record, 5-1 in event): The Bulldogs were second in the tournament with wins over Union County (70-12), West Nassau (71-10), Ft Walton Beach (38-37), Niceville (55-18) and Ft Myers (36-31), the last dual essentially being a faceoff for second.

Suwannee finished with three unbeaten wrestlers; turning in 5-0 records for the event were Austin McKinney (132, 3 pins & decision) and James Prentice (170, 4 pins). On Friday, Tyson Musgrove (145, pin/tech/major) turned in a 3-0 day.

Eli Jolicoeur (106, 2 pins & tech), Brody Boehm (126, 4 pins & decision) and Austin Howard (160, pin, tech & 2 majors) all were 5-1 for Suwannee, while Ayden Kirby (138/145, 3 pins) put in a 4-1 weekend for the Bulldogs.

Eleteurio Meria (285, pin & decision) was 4-2 on the weekend, while Topher Pearson (113/120, 3 pins), Christian Socorras (152, 2 pins & decision) and Christian Harrell (220, pin) each added 3-3 records during the course of the two days.

Niceville (14-9 for season, 3-2 in event): The Eagles were third in the standings behind wins over West Nassau (60-17), Ft Myers (42-34) and Union County (46-28).

There were no 5-0 Niceville wrestlers when the team left early Saturday, but Aidan Kyllonen (152, 4 pins) was unbeaten, going 4-0.

Harrisen Wall (182, 4 pins) was 4-1 on the weekend, while Colt Dannenmueller (138, pin & major) contributed a 3-1 tournament effort.

Additionally, Garrett Jarvis (120, 3 pins), Ethan Pinto (126, 2 pins & decision) and Asa Adams (285, pin) all were 3-2 during the weekend for the Eagles.

WEEKEND DUALS

#Showdown: Hagerty Takes 2nd At Crosstown Rival Event

OVIEDO — Hagerty was a late add-on for Saturday’s Showdown in O-Town, jumping in at the last to help out crosstown rival and host Oviedo.

And the Huskies made the most of their opportunity, going 4-1 and placing second in the six-team Showdown. Hagerty opened with wins over Lake Howell (76-0), Bishop Moore (69-5), Rockledge (66-12) and the host Lions (66-12) before falling to another FHSAA region-finals qualifier, Merritt Island, 40-31, in the final round.

The event provided Hagerty (23-6 in duals for the season) a chance to knock some rust off and prepare for Friday’s 3A-Region 1 finals matchup against Flagler Palm Coast, set for 6 p.m. The winner of that dual enters the 3A state semis on Saturday at 10 a.m.

The Huskies had four wrestlers go 5-0 on the day, three of them as max-pointers, scoring 6 team dual points in every dual the team contested. Lochlann Higgins (113, 3 pins), Kamdon Harrison (160/170, 3 pins) and Hunter Tate (195, 2 pins) were the three max-pointers. Joining them at 5-0 was David Mejia (132/138, 3 pins & major), who bonus-pointed through the day.

Connor Gilliam (170/182, 4 pins) turned in a 4-0 day for Hagerty, while Austin St John (152, 2 pins) added a 3-0 tournament in a regular role.

Ethan Gomez (170/182, 3 pins), Landon Revis (220/285, 2 pins & decision) and Thad Elam (220/285, 3 pins) were each 4-1 and Jacob Genao (126/132, pin) 3-1 for the Huskies. Gavin Nelson (145, 3 pins) chipped in a 3-2 effort as well for Hagerty.

Here are reports on the other two teams in the coverage area that competed Saturday:

Oviedo (11-14 for season, 3-2 in event, 3rd): After opening with a 59-18 loss to the eventual champs, the Lions ran past Lake Howell (66-15) and Bishop Moore (70-12); after the loss to Hagerty, Oviedo claimed third with a 54-27 win over Rockledge.

Conner Rodriguez (106) was a 5-0 max-pointer to lead the Lions in team dual points scored, with 30.

Daniel Restrepo (113/120, major & decision) and Clayton Mitchell (138, 3 pins & decision) were both 4-1 for Oviedo, while Levi Thorpe (285, 2 pins) was 3-1.

Caden Martz (113/120, pin), James Chiaradio (160, 2 pins), Joey Gioa (182/195, 2 pins) and Yosef Mohaisem (220, 2 pins) all were 3-2 on the day for the Lions.

Lake Howell (2-9 for season, 0-5 in event, 5th): The shorthanded Silver Hawks had representation had just six weights, making dual wins difficult. Lake Howell, in addition to the losses noted above, fell to Merritt Island (83-0), Rockledge (48-9) and Bishop Moore (56-24).

Jayden Velazquez (195/220) was the only Lake Howell wrestler above .500 on the day, going 3-2 with 3 pins.
