PINELLAS PARK -- Wellington, paced by seven wrestlers in the top four, won the regional tournament Saturday with 137.5 points, 7.5 ahead of second-place Royal Palm Beach. Venice was third with 126 and Bloomingdale rounded out the top four with 109.

Pinellas Park, which won the district championship a week ago, was seventh with 96 points and had three wrestlers qualify for the state tournament at the Lakeland Center next week.

Pinellas Park's Delvon Stanley advanced to the final at 160 pounds, but he was defeated by Royal Palm Beach's Kurt Ball 14-3. Michael Folgoust finished fourth at 135 pounds and Antoine Daniels was fourth at 189 pounds. Both will also represent the Patriots at the state tournament.

Palm Harbor University and St. Petersburg, the only other Pinellas County schools in the 27-team field, failed to qualify a wrestler for the state tournament.

Royal Palm Beach had champions in four weight classes, the most of any school. Venice and Martin County had two champions.

Tampa schools Bloomingdale and Plant City each had a champion. Bloomingdale's Robert Hagin won the 112-pound class with a pin in the third period against Graham Garby of Sarasota Riverview. Plant City's Cornelius Wiggins won a major decision against Wellington's Sean McAleney, 17-9.

First-round matches at the state tournament begin Thursday. The second round is Friday and the finals are Saturday night.
