We have our 17th schedule overall, came in today. Arnold is our third schedule from the Tallahassee/Gulfside part of the coverage area, and second one from 1A-District 1 thus far.
The Marlins will begin the 2017-18 season with a first appearance at district rival South Walton’s Border Wars on December 1st-2nd, a two-day pooled competition & IBT event. They’ll stay in the IBT format on December 8-9, when Arnold will take part in the Capital City Classic in Tallahassee.
Arnold will have its first dual on December 15, a Friday in-school dual at home against Rutherford, but that won’t be the last of their December duals (no word on the schedule when and where FHSAA district duals will be held), as the Marlins will return to the Beast of the Beach, a two-day duals tournament hosted by Ft Walton Beach at the Emerald Coast Convention Center. The Marlins will close out 2017 by competing in Tate’s two-day IBT tournament on the 28th and 29th.
Arnold will have its only out-of-state competition on January 5-6, as they’ll compete in the Scott Rohrer Invitational, a two-day roundrobin hosted by Alabama’s Hoover HS. After another home Friday dual (not listed as an in-school this time) against Bozeman on the 12th, Arnold will be off — pending any FHSAA duals competition — until the 19th, when the Marlins will compete in Wewahitchka’s Gator Brawl.
Arnold will close out the regular season with a trek across the state to Palm Coast for the Flagler Rotary on January 26-27, a second cross-state trek to Clay for its Green Cove Springs Rotary on February 2-3, and then wrap up by hosting the Bay County Championships on February 9.
That puts us at 17 schedules in hand. Who’s NEXT??
