2A-2 wrestling: Dunedin qualifies seven for state

LAKELAND — Dunedin may not have walked out of the Class 2A, Region 2 tournament with any individual champions or a team trophy, but the Falcons did make history Saturday.

The program blazed a trail by qualifying a school-high seven grapplers for next weekend's state tournament at the Lakeland Center.

Headlined by the three region runnersup including Sean Shakoor (125), Kane Plate (135) and Luis Agramonte (285), Dunedin will be loaded with half of its lineup ready for the mats of the state's biggest tournament.

"I think we wrestled real well," Dunedin coach Marc Allison said. "We knew coming into this weekend that this was the toughest region in the state, and …every kid that comes through here has a shot at placing next weekend."

The previous season high of advancing wrestlers for the team was four last year. Dunedin (140 points) finished in fourth place overall in the tournament, joining Oviedo (217.5), Springstead (204) and host Lake Gibson (184.5) as the only teams to surpass the 100-point mark.

  2. Fennelly: With playoff chase in high gear, it's time for Rays to make a move

    The Heater


    Thursday was an off-day for the Rays, who are coming off a solid western swing. I assume there was no rest for the tag-team Rays baseball brain trust of Matt Silverman, Erik Neander and Chaim Bloom, whose job it is to improve this team in advance of the trade deadline. They've done a good job …

    Evan Longoria is glad to see the Rangers coming to town: He’s batting .296 against them with 15 homers and 56 RBIs in 69 career games.
