Former state champ George Cintron moves back into the area to care for his ill mother. By Steve Dorsey Palm Beach Post Staff Writer WELLINGTON - Some wrestlers might have been happy that George Cintron left the area for his junior season last year to attend school in New Jersey. Cintron tvas 36-0 and won the 112-pound title at the Class 6A state championships two years ago as a sophomore at John I. Leonard. Had he stuck around last season, it's unlikely anyone from the area , would have beaten him. Guess what? He's back and better than ever. Cintron, who now lives in Wellington's district and will wrestle for the Wolverines this season, received a special grant last year to attend New Jersey's Blair Academy, considered the best wrestling prep school in the nation. He said his wrestling partners in practice were among the top five or six in the country. "Up there you wrestled all year. It was a different world," Cintron said. Included among Cintron's 40-3 record last season were 112-pound titles at the Iron Man tournament in Ohio and Tournament of Champions in Reno, Nev., where in the semifinals he handed a wrestler who never had lost a high school match his first defeat. Two of Cintron's losses came near the end of the season after he suffered a shoulder injury. Cintron had planned to attend Blair Academy for his senior year, but he decided to return to Palm Beach County to help care for his mother, who about a year ago was diagnosed with cancer. "I thought about her every match," Cintron said. "Everything I do this year is for her." IMPORTANT DATES 1. Santaluces: Defending Palm Beach County Athletic Conference champion Chiefs have depth and return four wrestlers who won at least 25 matches last season. They could be a force in their realigned Class 6A region that includes mostly Broward County teams. 2. Boca Raton: Bobcats coach Jerry Kuntz has six district champions returning from last season's Class 5A regional runner-up squad. 3. Forest Hill: Falcons are coming off the best season in school history in which they were a Class 4A regional runner-up. They return four state tournament qualifiers. 4. Wellington: Wolverines lost six wrestlers to new school Royal Palm Beach and return only three from last year's team that placed third at PBCAC championships. But addition of former John I. Leonard state champion George Cintron makes this team worth watching. Jan. 5: Deadline for filing minimum certified weight form.

He might be, but he said his focus this year will be more on getting himself prepared for wrestling in college he's already signed a scholarship with North Carolina State than on going undefeated and winning another state title. In fact, he said if he doesn't win the state title, it won't be as school being over. I'm taking it to the next level. I want to prepare for the next step."- The next step college means Cintron must add some weight to his small, but well-chiseled frame to meet the lowest weight division in college wrestling. A wrestler adding weight is in contrast to what most wrestlers do during a season when they try to lose weight to drop down to a lower weight class. But then, Cintron isn't your typical wrestler either. much of a disappointment as some might think. "I've always had a lot of pressure on me throughout high school, and it kind of messed me up emotionally," said Cintron; who plans to wrestle at 119 pounds by district tournament time. "My mom getting cancer, and not knowing whether she was going to make it another , year, made me realize things. "My focus really isn't so much on winning state as it is to get bigger and stronger. ...

Lincoln Park had three players score in double figures, including senior guard Duanda Ball, who scored a game-high 31 points and added nine steals and six assists.
