2007 Florida Classic
This year's Florida Classic was hosted at the University of Florida's Southwest Recreational Center. FAMU, FAU, LSU, FGCU, USF, and UF were all the competing teams in the event. They were divided into two pools as a dual tournament. The first pool consisted of FAU, FGCU, and LSU and the second consisted of UF, USF, and FAMU. The top two teams from each pool, FAU and UF, faced off for first place and the title at the Classic. UF managed to edge out FAU 27-21, with great performances from all its wresters: Nick Trevino, John Kauderman, Aaron Moore, Marcus Powers, Freddie Williams, and Patrick Scicchitano. Taking 3rd were the Tigers of LSU followed by USF who took 4th.
This was UF's first victory of the season and it came just in time before the end of the season giving the team a positive boost before conference.
I'd like to thank everyone that helped out and wrestled and we only hope to make this tournament better every year.
A newsletter will be sent out later next month about next year's location and who we are inviting. Hope to see you there.
