3A-7 district wrestling: Recount ensures third straight crown for Palm Harbor U.

PALM HARBOR — The results at the end of the Class 3A-7 district meet Friday would have Chamberlain seemingly knocking off Palm Harbor University and halting the Hurricanes' streak of district titles at two.

But Hurricanes coach Brad Sakevich thought something was wrong with the scoring and after reviewing with officials, Sakevich's hunch was correct.

After first being named runnerup, the Hurricanes won 183-182.

"I'm just so proud of the kids," Sakevich said. "We've had just such a young squad and the kids have been the bridesmaids at all these meets and for them to finally be the bride means so much to them. The district title win changed the whole demeanor of the team going into regionals."

And who would have known PHU sophomore Tyler Modlin's 275-pound consolation with Gaither's Zack Massey would mean so much; Modlin pinned Massey in 2:03 and his win vaulted the Hurricanes to the win.

Other Hurricanes qualifying for regionals are Mike May (103), Tucker Hardwick (112), Reese Gormam (119), Josh Kampmen (125), Aaron Hartman (130), Logan Kushner (152), Jeff Ting (160), Nick Orgera (171) and Jared Stippert (215). Hartman and Stippert took home district titles.

Other notables qualifying for regionals were Countryside's Ryan Hartman (119), Seminole's Dominic Driver (140) and Gaither's Anthony Diaz (189). Chamberlain had four individual champions.
