In the 220-pound weight class, junior Dylan Meeks pinned all four of his opponents in a total of 147 seconds in capturing his fourth consecutive Wrestling Regional Championship Saturday. In the opening round, Meeks (33-0) dispatched Keon Bush of Oak Ridge in just 13 seconds and followed up with a pin of Oviedo's Solomon Gruse in just 16 seconds of the quarterfinal round. In the semifinal, Meeks had to work twice as long, taking 32 seconds to pin Freedom's Romel Stimphil before closing out his championship with a pin of Jose Concepcion of Fleming Island at 1:26 of the first period. Senior Tahj Glemaud had an outstanding performance with a third place finish in the 285-pound class. Glemaud (46-6) pinned Chris Shauman of Jacksonville Sandalwood  at 1:18 of the first round and edged out Freedom's Brooks Williamson, 1-0, in the quarterfinal round. In the semifinal, Glemaud fell to Atlantic Coast's Deangeles Harris but fought back in the consolation bracket. A rematch with Shauman ended much like the first with a pin just 12 seconds into the second period and in the consolation championship, Glemaud decisioned Wekiva's Latavius Melton, 2-1, to capture the bronze medal. Both Meeks and Glemaud qualified for next weekend's State Championship tournament in Kissimmee.

Junior Jamel Clue advanced to the semifinals with an opening round pin of Oak Leaf's Vince Karl (4:21) and a major decision over Cypress Creek's DJ Dean (16-7). In the semifinals, however, Clue lost by major decision to eventual champion Michael DeAugustino of Flagler Palm Coast (8-0) and then in the consolation semifinals to Fleming Island's Jacob Sandoval (6-5). Clue finished his season with a strong record of 42-14 and will make a legitimate run next year as a senior. Senior Khai Do wrapped up his wrestling career with a record of 30-14, winning his consolation match, 9-2, over Hagerty's Matt Munroe. Senior Stephon Frye also finished up his career this weekend with a senior year record of 22-19.

As a team, DP placed seventh overall in the field of 35 teams.
