— Mason-Dixon boys’ tournament summary by Florida

…………………………………………………

66th Annual Boys Mason Dixon Tournament hosted by Alabama School for the
Deaf in Talladega, AL. 1/19-20/2018.

This was an unique tournament.  Of the 11 member schools, only 6 could
participate.  The rest were snowed in or could not travel the icy roads
safely to get to Alabama.  The participating schools were #1 seeded
Mississippi, #2 Florida, #3 Alabama, #4 Virginia, #5 Tennessee, and #6 Louisiana.

With the number of teams we had, the standard bracket could not be used. 
Major props to the host school for making the necessary changes and
putting together an awesome tournament.  We decided to split the teams
into 2 pools and play a round robin format on Friday.  We were grouped with
Alabama and Louisiana.

We went undefeated in pool play, beating Louisiana 35-21 and then Alabama
51-43.  The next day, we created a 4 team bracket with the top 2 teams
from each pool advancing.  We faced Virginia first and emerged victorious
46-15.  Next up was a rematch with
Alabama after they upset Mississippi 67-52.  The championship game was a
thriller for the fans and we managed to pull away at the end to earn the
right to cut down the nets, 55-46.

This was sweet on so many levels, but the chief of them all must be the
fact that we have not beaten either Alabama nor Mississippi in 4 years
(0-7).  As anyone associated with this tournament can attest, it is quite
difficult to beat Alabama on their
home court.  And we did it twice.  The boys really played hard and they
deserved this win.

Fremont wrestling

The Eagles grapplers had good experience last weekend at the Willigan
Wrestling Tournament hosted at Indiana School for the Deaf.  Since we
brought only seven wrestlers, we couldn’t win any team duals no matter how
good we fared.  However at the individual tournament during the second
day, Kal Carpenter finished second while George Quirie and Cruz Ascencio
finished third in their respective weight classes.  Congratulations to
everyone!  This week, we will continue with a string of home basketball
and cheerleading games along with a wrestling tournament this weekend. 
Good luck to everyone down the stretch!

Athlete of the Week – KAL CARPENTER.  Our hard working wrestler has
impressed the coaching staff so much for being coachable and willing to
improve.  This resulted in a great tournament for Kal where he came out in
second place at the individual tournament in his weight class.  His
attitude and work ethic is always a pleasure to have on the team.
