Fernandina Beach Makes It 45!

All of the Nassau County schools are in the fold! Fernandina Beach’s schedule was waiting in my inbox when I got home from a long night of “work” and a successful half-hour of “groceries.”

The Pirates will open their season on Saturday at the North Florida Duals, a traditional season-opener for Fernandina, but then will go to Fletcher a Saturday later to compete in the Neptune Beach Duals. FBHS will then travel to Raines on December 16th for the Vikings’ home quad, at which Nease and FSDB will also be present.

Fernandina kicks off January with the Nassau County championships, which it has Yulee as hosting (I believe the earlier schedules had said FBHS would host). The Pirates then host Raines on January 14th, then travel to Episcopal for the two-day Rob Bierbaum Invitational on January 15-16.

From there, Fernandina will participate in Yulee’s “Battle on the Border,” Raines’ 5 Star Invitational IBT and the Clay Rotary in Green Cove Springs on February 5-6, and that will close out the regular season.

So that just leaves Paxon out of the coverage-area teams that will be competing in the post-season. That one we should have in hand tomorrow night.


I covered wrestling for 15 years up north and "retired" in both 1992 and again in 2011. But I couldn't stay away. Started Northeast Florida Matmen in 2013, Northwest Florida Matmen in 2015. We combined those sites into North Florida Matmen in the summer of 2018. And, we've started South Georgia Matmen in November of 2018. Our work is never paywalled, our content is searchable for all time. We're here because the kids keep lacing 'em up, so we'll keep writing 'em up.
