St. Pete Times story


The bull Light weights led the way to victory as the team captured the title in a very competive dule meet tournament. Bloomingdale was undefeated from 103 to 130 in all three of their matches. Mason, Geisert. Tuberosa, Schoot and Duvall got each match started with a bang then the rest of the team did what they had to to earn the wins.

In their first match the team walked through a young Lakeland squad who as always was very physical.The upper middle matches were very close. With Cruz and Maynor pulling off last second wins and Scott and Harless loosing Heartbreakers in OT.

East Lake then won the next 5 to close the gap to 29-24. Maynor, Cruz and Lovelace then assured the victory with three straight wins for the bulls. Cruz wrestled the best match of his young career beating a very good Beamer 7 to 6.

The stage was set for the Championship match with Mantee. No one could forget last years matchup in which the bulls Jumped of to a 32-0 lead only to see Mantee come back and tie the match sending the Bulls home in third place. All were determined not to let that happen again. Mason and Geisert started it off with Major decs. over tough opponets. Tuberosa added a pin. Schott Beat 5th ranked Garnet for the second time this year leading one to wonder when his ranking will be moved up. Duvall then got revenge for his lose at the Mita and scored a 1 point dec. over nLukans In a big win rookie Cochran pined as did Mendoza. after winning the first 7 matches the lead look good. Then the Canes started to move winning the next three. Shades of last year started to surface.
