Hillsborough County Wrestling Championships

WHERE: Wharton High

WHEN: Friday, early round matches, 3-9 p.m.; Saturday, finals, 5 p.m.

PARTICIPATING TEAMS: Every Hillsborough County public school

OUTLOOK: Brandon has won a county wrestling championship every year since 1972, and there is little doubt the Eagles will win again in 2014. Brandon, in fact, should dominate most of the individual weight classes. Robinson’s Luis Peguero, at 182 pounds, is one of the few wrestlers outside the Brandon circle to be favored in a weight class. Last year, Brandon dominated the county tournament with 385.5 points, winning by more than 200 over Robinson. The format is a straight-forward bracket system for each weight class.
