Sharks fall short of Bulldogs in wrestling


Despite storming back in the last three matches of the evening, the Ponte Vedra High School Sharks wrestling team lost to The Bolles School Bulldogs by a score of 42-40 on Wednesday, Jan. 31.

Bolles started with a large lead based on its full lineup at the upper weights. However, the Sharks nearly completed a comeback after a late run left them a millimeter short of tying the match. In the last match of the evening, Junior Troy Maritato (170 pounds) had his opponent a fraction of an inch from being pinned and tying the score.

Maritato had to settle for a major decision 13-3. Preceding the final match, Ethan Baur (152 pounds) nailed his opponent with a far side cradle, and Andre Aguiar (160 pounds) muscled his bulldog opponent for the other Sharks pin of the evening.
