2A-10 wrestling: Leto seniors win first titles as four Falcons advance

KENNETH CITY — Alberto Algarin and Barrington McNutt are Leto seniors who had never won district titles.

That ended Friday as both picked up District 10-2A championships and both did it the hard way — neither was a No. 1 seed.

"I had to finish off with a bang," said Algarin, who improved to 33-6 in the 189-pound division. "I was trying to work my hardest to make it."

"We have a small team and we wanted to keep this going, so we hoped one of us would win," said McNutt, who improved to 28-7 in the 215-pound bracket.

Algarin's tournament started with a slim 7-6 decision over Andrew Krok of Largo. He then decisioned No. 4 seed Luis Aldana 8-5 in the finals.

When McNutt reached the finals, he did have to overcome a No. 1 seed. The third-seeded Falcon pinned Jared Willett of Osceola (28-7) in 4:46.

Overall, Leto will send four to regionals. Killian Whitley was second at 130 pounds and Ferdi Gonzalez was third at 125. Jefferson will send eight to regionals.

In the team standings, Dixie Hollins won the district title with 203 points. Jefferson edged Leto 65.5-62 for fourth place.

    ST. PETERSBURG — As pleased as the Rays were to win consecutive series against the contending Red Sox, Indians and Yankees and to get briefly back over .500, there was a lot of talk in the clubhouse before Monday's game against the Angels that it was time to do better.

    Tampa Bay Rays third base coach Charlie Montoyo (25) high fives designated hitter Corey Dickerson (10) as he rounds third on his lead off home run in the first inning of the game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Los Angeles Angels at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Monday, May 22, 2017.

    OF/DH Corey Dickerson missed out on a good birthday gift when AL player of the week honors went instead to Detroit's J.D. Martinez. Dickerson hit .385 with five homers, nine RBIs and nine runs; Martinez went .389-4-9-7 and got the nod.

  4. Rays journal: Alex Cobb learning to work with what he has



    If this were 2012 or 2013, even 2014, RHP Alex Cobb would have problems. He would find himself working with only two of his three pitches, with the missing pitch being his trusty changeup.

    Alex Cobb, working mainly with his fastball and curveball, is 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA over his past five starts. The Rays right-hander tries to continue his strong stretch tonight against the Angels.
