Charles Page High School Class of 2017 graduate and Oklahoma State University freshman Daton Fix was selected as one of three finalists for the All-Tulsa World Wrestler of the Year award. Fix is considered to be one of the greatest wrestlers in Oklahoma High School history, and is currently ranked first in the nation pound-for-pound.
Before ever hitting the high school varsity mat, Fix already had a series of Junior High State Championships and was a three-time USA Wrestling National Champion in both Freestyle and Greco-Roman.
As a freshman he went undefeated and won titles at the Perry Tournament of Champions, the Kansas City Invitational, the Bobby Lyons Invitational, the Jay Hancock Invitational, the Junior High State Championship, the Regional Championship, and the 113-pound 6A State Championship.
In 2014 he won the USAW Folkstyle National Championship, the Cadet Freestyle and Greco-Roman Pan-American Championships in Brazil, the UWW Cadet Freestyle National Championship, and was a member of the Oklahoma USAW Junior Freestyle Dual Team that won a National Title. He traveled to Slovakia for the Freestyle World Championships and placed tenth, then won a silver medal at the Youth Olympic Games in China. He also went 32 minutes into overtime with current Penn State sophomore Nick Suriano to set a world record for longest high school match.
As a sophomore he won the Perry TOC, the KC Stampede, the Jerry Billing Invitational, the Jay Hancock Invitational, the Regional Championship, and the 120-pound 6A State Championship.
In 2015 he won the UWW Junior Freestyle Nationals, the UWW Cadet Freestyle Nationals, the USAW Junior Freestyle Nationals, and went undefeated on the USAW Oklahoma Junior Dual team that repeated for the title. He also won bronze at the Cadet Worlds in Bosnia.
He continued his undefeated streak during his junior year with wins at the Perry Tournament, the KC tournament, the Geary Invitational, the Bobby Lyons Invitational, the Jay Hancock Invitational, the Regional Championship, and the 126-pound State Championship.
In 2016 he won the UWW Junior Freestyle Nationals, defeated an Iranian National Champion during an exhibition match in Times Square, New York City, then won Junior Bronze at the World Championships in France.
He concluded his undefeated high school career with a 168-0 record, winning the Perry Tournament, KC Invitational, Geary Invitational, Jerry Billings Invitational, the Regional Championship, and the 132-pound State Championship. He also helped the Sandites to their first State Title since 1971 and their first-ever Dual State Title.
This summer he won the U.S. Open Freestyle Nationals and earned a spot on the Junior World Team once again. He will compete in Tampere, Finland this August.
He is a recipient of the National Dave Schultz High School Excellence Award, a USAW All-American First Team member, and a nine-time Sandite of the Week.
