Been a busy Matmen night, with two Northeast teams and a Northwest team submitting schedules. Westside has finalized its last couple of dates, with most of the others already appearing our schedule, so we’ll post on the Wolverines next as the Northeast’s 29th team.
There are two new weekend events on Westside’s calendar in 2016-17, as the Wolverines will take Blanding Boulevard south into Clay County and compete in the Ridgeview Rumble on the third weekend of December (16th and 17th). Westside will also join a northwest-side city and conference rival, Raines, for the Vikings’ 5 Star IBT event on the final weekend of January.
Westside is making returns to five events, including its own Westside Duals roundrobin on the first Saturday of February, which will wrap up the Wolverines’ regular season. That season will start with two visits to nearby Bishop Snyder (just a short hop west on 103rd Street) for the North Florida Duals on the first Saturday of December and for the Westside Kiwanis IBT tournament on the second weekend. In January, the Wolverines will be back at Terry Parker for the first set of Army Duals on the 13th and 14th and back at what appears to be Sandalwood (although that might be finalized as soon as this week) for the Gateway Conference IBT tournament on the 20th and 21st.
The Wolverines have three mid-week dual events, hosting St. Augustine on December 7 and Ed White on January 11, with a road trip to Glen St. Mary and Baker County for a rare Monday dual on January 23.
That’s 29. Who’s 30??
