We have a new coach at Episcopal, Jefferson Brant, coming in from Maryland, and Coach Brant is hitting the ground running, getting the first schedule in for the 2019-20 season before the calendar ticks over to June.
December will begin with the Eagles traveling westbound on Atlantic Blvd on the 4th, facing 1A-District 3 (this year) rival Bishop Kenny on the road. The Eagles will then compete in Bishop Snyder’s North Florida Duals, a one-day tournament, on the 7th. Then, Episcopal will be off for two weeks before going to the Yulee Duals on December 20-21.
January opens as it traditionally has, with the Eagles hosting the Rob Bierbaum Invitational, a one-day IBT, on the 4th. Episcopal next will host Bolles, now no longer a district rival, on the 9th, and is scheduled to compete in 1A-District 3 team dual tournament competition on the 11th, with the potential for region duals on the 16th. That weekend, the Eagles will travel to Tallahassee for Lincoln’s one-day Trojan Invitational, scheduled for the 18th. State dual team tournament action is scheduled for (potentially) all teams on the 24th and 25th. Episcopal swings back into regular-season dual competition by hosting Orange Park to the 29th.
The Eagles close out January and open February with an appearance at the Flagler Rotary, hosted by Flagler Palm Coast, a two-day IBT. They’ll stay in IBT mode the first full weekend of the month, going to Clay’s Green Cove Springs Rotary on the 7th and 8th. That will wrap up regular-season competition for Episcopal.
That’s our first one in hand! Will one of our newer teams be second? Will one of our usual teams that submit early be second? WHO’S NEXT???
