In other Hawk news, the Seminole Ridge wrestling team traveled to Gateway High School in Kissimmee recently for a weekend invitational tournament.

“It was one of the toughest tournaments in the state,” coach Frank Lasagna said. “And we didn’t have too good a day Friday, losing all three matches.”

“Currently Brandon [High School] is ranked seventh in the nation,” Lasagna added, “and is the defending 3A state champion 10 years running. But the good part of this match was the experience we got wrestling some of the best kids in the state. We were the only team to score any points on Brandon when Trace Thome defeated his opponent 3-1.”

“We came up short in the last Friday dual match, losing to Buchholz High School [from Gainesville].”

But the next day told a different story. “Saturday we came back and were ready to wrestle,” Lasagna said. “Even though we lost the first dual to a tough team, University High School [Orange City], we came back and won the next three duals to finish the weekend 3-4. We beat Liberty High School [Kissimmee] 65-15; Buchholz — the team we lost to on Friday — we beat 48-25, and in the final match of the consolation bracket we beat Astronaut High School [Titusville] 42-36, to finish in fifth place overall for the tournament.”
