The Class 6A No. 5 ranked Charles Page High School wrestling team (14-4) won its final dual of the regular season Tuesday evening at No. 15 Bixby (3-7), rolling over the Spartans 57-21 with eight pins.

Both teams forfeited one weight class apiece and Sand Springs won nine out of twelve matches. The only Sandite victory that didn’t come by fall was arguably the most impressive as Seth Jones (15-11, 37-25) won a 6-4 decision over Zach Blankenship.

Blankenship, a previously-undefeated freshman and two-time Junior High State Champion was ranked first in the State with six tournament titles this season. Jones gave up three points in the second period but scored takedowns in the first and third to end the Spartan’s undefeated season.

Christian Forbes (26-9) received a forfeit to start the dual and Brendon Wiseley (30-11, 44-19) racked up a 12-0 lead on Garrett Washington before sticking his foe at 5:06 for a 12-0 lead. Bixby got on the board at 120 with a forfeit to Karsten Rice. Blake Jones (20-10) followed up Seth Jones’s win by pinning Ainslie Lane in 1:59 to make it 21-6.

Aidan Kirkland won an 8-4 decision over Joseph Mattison (2-8) at 138 pounds then Sand Springs went on a run. Preston Medlin (13-18) pinned Caleb Stephens in 1:09, Scott Patton (24-1, 59-23) pinned Aidan Hill in 2:31, and Chris Kirby (28-10, 50-20) pinned Isaac Gibson in 3:39 for a 39-9 advantage.

The Spartans tried to battle back with falls at 170 and 182. Jack Puckett pinned Braden Dahl (9-13, 10-16) and Andrew Plumlee pinned Santana Naugle (3-9) to keep the dual alive, but Brooks Dudley (9-5) pinned Christian Brylewski to clinch the victory for Sand Springs. The last two matches were over in less than a minute as Kaden Glass (26-8) pinned Brady Neasby in 0:18 and Josh Fincannon (24-16, 38-33) pinned Tommy Baty in 0:23.

Sand Springs will return to action Friday at 12:00 p.m. when they wrestle No. 4 Edmond North (9-2) in the first round of the OSSAA 6A Dual State Championship.
