Weekend Wrestling Roundup

This week upcoming is a big camp week, particularly in Clay County, where three will be ongoing simultaneously. I will run one photo from each camp each day this coming week, probably sometime in the evening, but they’ll need to be sent to me via email or pullable via Facebook.

NFWA Wrestlefest

Wrestlers in full effect during the course of action at the North Florida Wrestling Academy’s Wrestlefest, held on Saturday at Fleming Island High School. Around 80-90 wrestlers from north and central Florida, as well as south Georgia, were in attendance (Photo submitted by Larry Insalaco via Facebook).

Still working on career win lists for kids in grades 10-12 (rising to those grades), and for 9th graders and younger where they’ve seen varsity action. That’s really more of a background project, though, and will be shared with coaches in the fall.

We’ve got results from a pair of tournaments involving local wrestlers.

Am looking forward to Disney. We’ll be running, as we did last year, full results for all Florida teams in a “semi-live” setting (meaning, box scores will posted to division-specific daily posts as time permits). Still want to cover this one day. Perhaps when I’m an empty-nester, which is only a couple of years out.

Here’s the results I have:

At Forest Hill HS
Going For The Gold

Folkstyle (local results)
Cadet 195-220: Lance Floyd (Pin N Win) — L-DEC Ray Lugo (ATM Wrestling), 7-1; L-ID Mason Powell (Wellington); L-FALL Alex Zepeda (Wellington), 2:41; L-ID John Ruiz (Miami).

Editor’s Note: Pin N Win’s Travon Mincey was registered at 275 for the Junior Division, but no other competitors were at the weight in that division.

HS 154: 2. Malachi Martin (Panther WC) — L-FALL Gavin Foushee (Seneca IN, eventual champ), 1:04; ID Ethan Huffman (Boone County WC); FALL Levi Hexamer (Patriot WC), 1:25; DEC Mason Ayer (Patriot WC), 5-3; DEC Blake Bushey (Whitewater Valley WC), 4-1 (true second).


I covered wrestling for 15 years up north and "retired" in 2011. But as I thought I had in 1992, I couldn't stay away. Started Northeast Florida Matmen in 2013, Northwest Florida Matmen in 2015. New initiative this year is to create a space on my sites where ALL Florida results can be stored, searched, reviewed and used by my readers, with NO COST TO THEM.
