Cougars in position to reclaim title


© St. Petersburg Times, published January 20, 2001

EAST LAKE -- After relinquishing its six-year reign as champion of the Pinellas County Athletic Conference to East Lake last season, Countryside has set out to take back what was once its domain.

The Cougars got a token of revenge by beating the Eagles in a dual meet in December. Now Countryside is in position to reclaim the PCAC title. And the Cougars can do it in East Lake's gym.

Countryside is on top with 611/2 points after the first day of wrestling at the PCAC tournament. The Eagles are second (521/2 points), followed by Pinellas Park (50).

Wrestling resumes today at 10 a.m. with the semifinals and the second round of wrestlebacks.

The consolations are at 6 p.m. and the finals are at 7:30. Admission is $4.

East Lake still has a chance to catch up, but a lot will depend on how its seven wrestlers do in the semifinals. "We're trying to keep it close," Eagles coach Pete Collins said. "The semifinals will give us a good indication of where we stand."

The Cougars have eight wrestlers in the semis.
