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.
