We are up to our 54th schedule thus far.
This afternoon’s precap comes in from Wewahitchka in 1A-District 1; it’s our second one from this district, meaning that — this year — we still have six in the district that are still out with 30 days to go before #TurkeyNWrestling rolls out.
The Gators begin 2019-20 with a return trip to the two-day Panther Prowl at Ridgeview, where they started the season last year, on December 6-7, the first weekend of the year. Next up is an out-of-state, but significantly shorter trip on the second weekend, as Wewa will go to the Swede Umbach Invitational, a two-day roundrobin event, on the 13th and 14th, at Auburn, ALA. The third weekend is, as of now, a girls’ weekend, as the Wewa girls wrestlers will travel to Matanzas for the Lady Pirate Classic on the 21st. Between Christmas and New Year’s, the Gators will go to Shreveport, LA, for the Lone Survivor two-day tournament, hosted by Parkway HS there.
In January, Wewa opens at former district rival Mosley’s two-day The Bash dual tournament, a tournament that has shifted hosts this season. After that, the Gators will compete in 1A-District 1 dual team tournament action at North Bay Haven on the 9th, with the possibility of Region 1 tournament action at the District 1 champion on the 16th and state duals at Osceola on the 24th and 25th. The next regular-season event begins on the 10th, as Wewa road-trips back over to the Atlantic side and Yulee’s two-day Joe Bees Memorial Battle of the Border, a two-day IBT that ends on the 11th. The third weekend of the month will have the Gators their annual mid-January roundrobin event, the Gator Brawl, on the 17th and 18th; the following weekend, they’ll travel to district rival Bay’s inaugural George Mulligan Memorial on the 24th and 25th.
February competition for the Gators will begin on January 31st, with the first day of the Wakulla IBT, which will conclude on the 1st. For a majority of the team, the regular season will end at Chiles on the 8th with the one-day Timberwolf Duals, while girls’ state at Dr Phillips, on the 14th and 15th, wraps it up for the Gator girls wrestlers. Wewa will host the 1A-District 1 traditional tournament on the 21st, a Friday-evening start.
