CPHS Wrestling: Sandites place eighth at Ram Duals, fall 55-18 to Kansas State Champions

Freshman Christian Forbes was the team’s leading scorer with four pins and a tech fall. His only loss was to a nationally-ranked State Champion.

Freshman Christian Forbes was the team’s leading scorer with four pins and a tech fall. His only loss was to a nationally-ranked State Champion.

The Class 6A No. 5 ranked Charles Page High School wrestling team (12-4) has taken a beating this past week and settled for eighth place out of fourteen teams at the Fourth Annual Ram Duals Saturday afternoon in Owasso. The Sandites were four starters short of a healthy roster and fell 55-18 to the defending Kansas 5A State Champions, No. 1 Goddard.

The Lions kicked off the dual with four straight falls. State Qualifier Cayleb Atkins pinned Dakota Taylor (0-7), State Qualifier Nolan Craine pinned Braden Dahl (8-9), State Qualifier Trevor Dopps pinned Chris Kirby (27-9, 49-19), and State Qualifier Cayden Atkins pinned Riley Magee (12-11, 17-16) for a 24-0 lead.

Freshmen were the stars of the show for Sand Springs. All three of the Sandites’ wins came by first-period falls at the hands of freshmen. Kaden Glass (24-8) pinned JD Bridwell in 0:33 to get the Sandites on the board, and Brooks Dudley (8-4) pinned Garrett Mead in 0:51 to make it 24-12. State Qualifier Trent Willert pinned Josh Fincannon (22-16, 36-33) at heavyweight, but Christian Forbes (20-7) responded by pinning Jayden Miller in 1:06.

The Lions won five out of the last six weight classes. State Champion Jason Henschel pinned Brendon Wiseley (24-11, 38-19), State Finalist Lucas Glover pinned Dylan Luker (6-9), and the teams double forfeited 126. Logan Davidson won a 5-4 decision against Blake Jones (18-10), State Qualifier Isaiah Holmes pinned Caleb Phillips (5-15, 7-22), and State Qualifier Jace Fisher won a 12-0 major decision against Preston Medlin (12-17) to conclude the day.

Sand Springs Wrestling will return to action Thursday at home against undefeated No. 7 Jenks (7-0). The Trojans haven’t beaten Sand Springs since 1997, but their program is the strongest it has been in years, setting the stage for what should be a good matchup.

That loss didn’t slow the Eagles down at all as State Qualifier Noah Yeamans pinned Caleb Phillips (3-11, 5-18), nationally-ranked No. 10 State Champion Trent Dooley pinned Preston Medlin (8-15), and State Qualifier Alejandro Cavazos pinned Dakota Taylor (0-1) to make it 31-3.

Chris Kirby (23-7, 45-17) fell into an 8-1 hole against Mario Danzi but headlocked the Eagle for back points in the second and third periods. Trailing 11-9 he picked up one point for stalling, cut his opponent loose, then took him down to send the match into sudden victory overtime. There he secured the fall at 6:12 to keep the Sandites alive.

The Eagles clinched the win soon after, however, as Will Villegas pinned Braden Dahl (5-6, 6-9), State Qualifier Nate Dooley pinned Riley Magee (9-8, 14-13), and Zane Davis pinned Brooks Dudley (6-3) for an insurmountable 49-9 lead.

Freshman standout Kaden Glass (19-7) made easy work of Isaiah Steel, pinning the Eagle in 3:12 after a 4-1 lead with back points, but Allen won the final two matches.

State Finalist Johnny Green won a close 1-0 decision against Josh Fincannon (19-14, 33-31) and nationally-ranked No. 5 State Champion Braxton Brown teched Christian Forbes (14-7) to end the dual.

Next up for the Sandites is 5A No. 19 McAlester (3-6) on Mat No. 6. The Buffaloes return only one State Qualifier in Ty Nohelty. They fell 78-4 to Allen in round one. Allen will wrestle Berryhill (1-8) in round three. Sand Springs will also dual Berryhill and 3A No. 2 Comanche (10-0) on day one of the tournament.

IMG_9410.JPG

The Class 6A No. 5 ranked Charles Page High School wrestling team (8-1) won their fourth-straight District Championship Thursday evening at the Ed Dubie Field House, punching their ticket to the Dual State Tournament next month in Shawnee.

Sand Springs routed Muskogee 69-10 and Enid 65-12 before winning a 45-27 barn burner against No. 14 Bartlesville (6-3). The Sandites won nine matches to five, but the Bruins recorded three falls and an injury forfeit to keep things close for most of the dual.

Josh Fincannon (19-13, 33-30) started the dual at 285 and pinned Ridge Brewington in 0:55. Christian Forbes (14-6) scored a 6-4 decision against Colby Strachan in a 106 battle of freshmen. Brendon Wiseley (19-9, 33-17) had a tough opponent in State Qualifier David Boucher, but recorded a takedown in the first period and reversals in the next two for a 6-0 decision.

Defending two-time State Champion Riley Weir (16-6, 107-33) had to take a medical forfeit at 126, suffering an injury shortly into the second period against State Qualifier Corwin Strachan, and the Bruins rode that momentum for four-straight match wins.

Seth Jones (13-8, 35-22) scored first on State Champion Laif Jones but gave up a reversal in the second. An escape gave the Sandite a 3-2 lead to start the third but the Bruin got a reversal with forty seconds left. Jones escaped to tie it, but Laif Jones got a takedown in sudden victory overtime.

Blake Jones (12-9) scored early on Ethan Gilkey but gave up reversals in the first and second periods before getting pinned in 3:32. State Qualifier Brayden Strachan pinned Caleb Phillips (3-10, 5-17) in 1:55 for a 21-12 Bruin lead.

Preston Medlin (8-14) got the Sandites back on track with an 8-1 decision over Kaleb Childress. Scott Patton (22-1, 57-23) pinned Jakob Hammack in 1:38 and Chris Kirby (22-7, 44-17) pinned Reed Blockard in 0:28 to put the Sandites out front at 27-21, but Laken Clowdus tied it up again by pinning Braden Dahl (5-5, 6-8) in 1:02.

Those would be the last points the Bruins would score. Riley Magee (9-7, 14-12) pinned Sabe Reddy in 4:33, Brooks Dudley (6-2) pinned Joe Fodor in 5:15, and Kaden Glass (18-7) pinned Jaden James in 1:12 to conclude the night.

Sand Springs wrestling will return to action Friday at the Owasso Ram Dual Tournament. The Sandites won the tournament in 2017 and placed fifth last season with four wins and two losses.

CPHS Wrestling: Sandites punish Plainsmen 65-12 with eleven pins

IMG_9865.JPG

The Class 6A No. 5 ranked Charles Page High School wrestling team (7-1) won their second district dual with ease Thursday evening at the Ed Dubie Field House, pinning eleven Enid Plainsmen en route to a 65-12 victory.

Kaden Glass (17-7) kicked off the dual with a seventeen second pin of Carter McClish at 220. Christian Forbes (13-6) pinned Jason Pearson in 1:19, Brendon Wiseley (18-9, 32-17) pinned Dae Stuber in 1:51, Riley Weir (16-5, 107-32) pinned Austin Hisey in 0:20, Seth Jones (13-7, 35-21) pinned Trinit Zweifel in 4:34, and Blake Jones (12-8) pinned Logan Herell in 3:25.

Enid broke up the streak with a pair of falls at 138 and 145.  Caleb Phillips (3-9, 5-16) fell in 3:25 to Hunter McGee and Preston Medlin (7-14) fell in 1:53 to Chance Davis.

Scott Patton (21-1, 56-23) got the Sandites back on track at 153 and pinned Johnny Villa in 4:10.

Josh Fincannon (18-13, 32-30) scored a takedown in the first period at 285 but gave up a pair of escapes and entered the third all tied up. He got the match-winning escape with a minute left and the two stayed neutral till the end.

Next up the Sandites will take on No. 14 Bartlesville (6-2) for the District Title and a ticket to the Dual State Championship.

Riley Magee took a 11-1 lead on John Lane before pinning the Rougher at 3:56.

The Sandite wrestling team (6-1) bounced back from their first loss of the season with a powerful 69-10 victory over Muskogee (2-3). The Class 6A No. 5 ranked Sandites recorded ten falls and lost only two matches in their first district dual Thursday afternoon at the Ed Dubie Field House.

The dual opened with a 195-pound forfeit to Brooks Dudley (4-2) and the Sandites won the next seven matches for a 45-0 lead before the Roughers got on the board.

Kaden Glass (16-7) pinned Zamor Hardaway in 0:58, Christian Forbes (12-6) pinned Jacob Wolf in 0:31, Brendon Wiseley (17-9, 31-17) pinned Rashaan Brownlee in 1:17, Riley Weir (15-5, 106-32) pinned Cliff Caraway in 0:30, Seth Jones (12-7, 34-21) pinned Dalton Fox in 1:16, and Blake Jones ( 11-8) pinned Trenton Jordan in 4:16. Josh Fincannon (17-13, 31-30) won the Sandites’ only decision of the dual, 7-3 over Davion Williams at heavyweight.

State Qualifier Christian Webb pinned Caleb Phillips (3-8, 5-15) in 2:40 to get the visitors on the board and Preston Medlin (7-13) gave up a 15-5 major decision to Leroy Johnson at 145.

Scott Patton (20-1, 55-23), the team’s winningest wrestler this season, pinned Jacob Church in 2:36 to kick off a new streak for the Sandites, then Chris Kirby (20-7, 42-17) came back from a 14-8 deficit and stuck Mason Seth in 4:12. Kirby leads the team in falls this season with sixteen, often while trailing in points or from the defensive position.

Braden Dahl (4-4, 5-7) pinned Mikel Swain in 1:03 and Riley Magee (7-7, 12-12) finished the dual off by pinning Jon Lane in 3:56.

Next up the Sandites will take on No. 17 Enid (3-3) who dropped a 47-24 loss to No. 14 Bartlesville (5-2) in the first round of districts. All district duals will be wrestled Thursday evening in Sand Springs, and the team with the best district record will advance to the Dual State tournament in Shawnee on February 8th at Firelake Arena.

Sandites of the Week: Chris Kirby and Scott Patton

You asked and we listened. We are bringing back our Sandite of the Week recognition in 2019, but we will need your help with nominations. Let us know who has had an outstanding week representing Sand Springs by emailing SanditePrideNews@gmail.com. Nominations are open to anyone who calls Sand Springs home. High school students, college students who are away from home, musicians, athletes, performers, government officials, community volunteers, etc. Help us honor the people who make Sand Springs great!

This week we are recognizing two high school wrestlers since we’re in the second week of the year. Typically we will only recognize one person per week.

First is CPHS senior Scott Patton. Patton holds a 54-23 career record but leads the team at 19-1 this season and is the only Sandite with two tournament titles this year. Patton won the 152-pound Cushing bracket two weeks ago with a 19-3 technical fall, a pin, a 15-4 major decision, and a 9-7 finals decision over Perry State Champion Hadyn Redus.

Last weekend Patton earned the 152-pound Jerry Billings Invitational title in Sapulpa. He pinned two foes and won a 10-4 decision to make his way to the finals, then won the title with a 2-1 decision over previously undefeated Comanche State Qualifier Gage Miller.

Second is CPHS junior Chris Kirby with a 31-17 overall record and 19-7 season record. Kirby was a runner-up at Cushing and won the Sapulpa title at 160 pounds. He pinned all four of his foes, including previously undefeated Comanche State Qualifier Ethon Hamrick.

Both athletes are returning State Qualifiers. Kirby placed fourth last year and leads the team in falls this year with fifteen.

CPHS Wrestling: Sandites dominated 47-6 by nationally-ranked Broken Arrow

IMG_7619.JPG

The Class 6A No. 5 ranked Charles Page High School wrestling team (5-1) suffered their first defeat of the season Tuesday night at the hands of No. 1 Broken Arrow (6-1). The 47-6 defeat was their worst dual loss since 2008, but it came at the hands of a program ranked seventeenth in the nation. The Sandites forfeited two matches and won only two of twelve, but seven of their ten losses were by decision and six losses came by two points or less.

Christian Forbes (11-6) lost a 3-1 decision to Bryce Cockrell. Brendon Wiseley (16-9, 30-17) lost a 4-3 decision to Jackson Cockrell. Tied 2-2 with thirty seconds in the match Wiseley caught a single leg but Cockrell got a whizzer in for the takedown.

State Qualifier Blazik Perez won a 3-1 decision over Seth Jones (11-6, 33-21), State Champion Reece Witcraft received a forfeit, State Qualifier Blake Gonzalez won a 14-6 major decision against Blake Jones (10-8), and Chris Moores won a 7-0 decision against Preston Medlin (7-12).

The Sandites’ only two wins came at 120 and 152. State Champion Riley Weir (14-5, 105-32) and State Qualifier Jared Hill went scoreless through the first and second periods. Weir escaped to start the third. Hill got hooks in on Weir for a throw, but the Sandite headlocked his foe for a takedown and backpoints for the 6-0 decision.

Diego Maturino tried to take down Scott Patton (19-1, 54-23) with a single leg early in the 152-pound match, but the Sandite got a headlock for back points. Maturino got a reversal and a takedown, but Patton notched two escapes and a takedown for the 9-6 decision.

Chris Kirby (19-7, 41-17) put on a show at 160 against Ty Rozell. In typical Westside Strangler fashion, Kirby fell in an early hole before reversing for backpoints with his signature headlock. He scored two more nearfall points in the second period, but Rozell added two more takedowns for an 8-7 decision.

State Runner-Up Bryce Mattioda pinned Braden Dahl (3-4, 4-7) in 1:34, Emmanuel Skillings won an 8-5 decision over Riley Magee (6-7, 11-12), State Champion Gavin Potter won a 15-7 major decision over Kaden Glass (15-7), State Champion Zach Marcheselli received a forfeit, and State Qualifier Noah Cortes won a 6-4 decision over Josh Fincannon (16-13, 30-30) to conclude the night.

Sandite Wrestling will return to action Thursday at 4:00 p.m. with a district quadrangle against Enid (3-2), Muskogee (2-2), and No. 14 Bartlesville (4-2). Sand Springs has won three-straight district titles.

NCAA Wrestling: Undefeated Daton Fix wins controversial OT match against No. 2 Nick Suriano

IMG_3208.jpg

Who’s number one? The two have tried to settle that question more than once, and for many fans the third match between No. 6 Daton Fix (19-0, 24-0) and No. 2 Nick Suriano (14-1, 55-5) was a bit of a letdown.

No. 3 Oklahoma State University (7-0) made a weekend trip to the East Coast for a pair of program-first duals against No. 25 Princeton (4-4) and No. 24 Rutgers (7-3).

On Saturday Fix rolled to his eleventh technical fall of the season, 22-7 against Jonathan Gomez (5-8, 17-19) in 6:38. The Pokes won that dual 27-12 with six wins and four losses.

On Sunday OSU won even more handily, 26-5, with only two losses.

Both Fix and Suriano entered Sunday’s dual with undefeated records for the season, and a lot of history. Both were undefeated four-time State Champions in high school, and the two hold the record for longest match ever at 32:12. They met once in the 2014 Cadet National finals, where Fix prevailed in an ultimate tie-breaker. And at the 2014 Who’s Number One event Suriano scored a takedown more than 26 minutes into overtime.

Fix, a redshirt freshman, has earned four tournament titles in his two seasons at OSU and has been steadily working his way up the rankings this year. Suriano, a junior, is a two-time NCAA qualifier. He suffered a first-round injury as a freshman and medical forfeited the remainder of the tournament. He was a national runner-up as a sophomore and holds four tournament titles in his three seasons.

Needless to say, there was a lot of hype in the weeks preceding their meeting.

The third meeting between the elite athletes went the way of the previous matches. An escape point apiece and a trip to overtime. In the first tie-breaker round Rutgers challenged for a locked hands call on Fix, but the refs sided with the Cowboy. Suriano did, however, record an escape.

In the second tie-breaker Suriano was called for locked hands and Fix escaped for a 3-2 lead. Rutgers challenged that call also, and both were overturned after a long video review process. Fix escaped again and sent the two into another sudden victory period tied at 2-2.

Finally, Fix was awarded the victory after Suriano was called for hands to the face. An anticlimactic finish for those who have been waiting all year for the heavily-anticipated meeting.

With no more tournaments on the schedule till the post-season, Fix and Suriano will have to wait till late March for the NCAA Tournament before they get the chance to meet again.

The Cowboys will return to Big 12 action Friday, January 18th when they take on West Virginia (2-9). OSU is 4-0 in conference duals while the Mountaineers are 2-2 riding a three-dual losing streak. Fix could get a ranked match against No. 18 Matt Schmidt (11-0, 40-15).

There are numerous other quality opponents on the horizon for Fix. With eight duals left he could meet No. 4 Micky Phillippi (12-1, 54-12), No. 9 Austin Gomez (12-1, 20-1), No. 10 Austin DeSanto (11-1, 39-8), No. 11 John Erneste (11-3, 96-26), and No. 17 Brandon Paetzell (6-7, 37-21).

IMG_7536.JPG

The Class 6A No. 5 ranked Charles Page High School wrestling team improved to a 5-0 record Thursday night at the Ed Dubie Field House, dominating No. 11 Union (3-2).

The Sandites won ten out of fourteen matches, nine of which came with bonus points. Sand Springs recorded six falls, two technical falls, and received a forfeit in the 55-18 smackdown.

Freshman Christian Forbes (11-5) made quick work of Tayton Gwatney at 106 pounds, scoring a takedown just ten seconds into the match. One more takedown late in the first and Forbes rolled the Redskin for a pair of back points and a 6-1 lead. He started the second period with an easy escape and added five more back points, then secured the 17-1 technical fall with a takedown at 4:26.

Brendon Wiseley (12-7, 26-15) was next up with a takedown in only twelve seconds against Jarrod Gilliam. He racked up a 13-0 first period lead with eleven back points before reversing for the tech fall at 2:21. The win shattered the previous school record for fastest tech fall at 113 pounds.

Two-time State Champion Riley Weir (9-5, 100-31) received a forfeit at 120 for his 100th career win.

Seth Jones (9-4, 31-18) was first to score in his 126 match against Verdell Schoats, but Schoats escaped and scored his team’s first takedown soon after. By the end of the first period they were tied 3-3, but Jones came up with a 10-5 lead in the second before sticking his foe at 3:57.

Blake Jones (10-7) took a 3-0 lead with a reversal early in the third period against Caleb Rogers before pinning the Redskin at 5:30 for a 28-0 team lead.

Preston Medlin (7-11) battled Chris Dugger at 138 and took a 2-1 lead in the first period. Dugger started the second on top and earned a pair of back points late in the period. Medlin looked to have a reversal shortly before the third period buzzer but Coach Jarrod Patterson’s argument fell on deaf ears and Dugger was awarded the 3-2 decision to put Union on the board.

Scott Patton (14-1, 49-23) worked up a 6-0 lead against Cooper Gibson in the first period at 152. Patton reversed to start the second, gave up a reversal, then reversed again for back points. He led 15-4 before finally pinning the Redskin at 3:57.

Chris Kirby (15-6, 37-16) gave up an early reversal to Shane Fields at 160 but quickly jumped out to a 9-3 lead before notching his eleventh pin of the season at 1:47. The win put Kirby at the front of the team in falls.

Gavin Koehler took control of Braden Dahl (2-1, 3-4) early in their match at 160, but the Sandite reversed for his first pin of the season at 1:48.

Riley Magee (5-3, 10-8) let Jake Rogers score first at 182, but made it 2-2 with a second period escape. Rogers brought down Magee with an inside trip late in the period but the two traveled out of bounds and started the third all tied up. Rogers reversed, Magee escaped, and it came down to the wire, but he couldn’t get a shot off in the final seconds and Rogers held on for the 4-3 decision.

Freshman standout Kaden Glass (12-5) upset State Qualifier Elijah Tomlin at 195. Glass scored takedowns in the first and third periods for a 5-2 decision.

Josh Fincannon (13-9, 27-26) had the biggest win of the dual, pinning State Qualifier Darius Booner in only 35 seconds.

Union’s only bonus points of the night came from State Qualifiers Jalen Hernandez and Micah Walker. Hernandez pinned Caleb Phillips (1-5, 3-12) in 2:26, and Walker pinned Justin Smith (0-1) in the Sandite’s varsity debut. Smith shocked the crowd with a big throw early in the match that briefly put the Redskin in hot water, but the more experienced wrestler came out on top and ultimately pinned Smith in 2:30.

The junior high won their dual 55-19.

The Sandites will return to action Friday morning at the Jerry Billings Invitational in Sapulpa. Top teams at the event include nationally-ranked No. 18 Broken Arrow, 5A No. 1 Collinsville, and 3A No. 2 Comanche.

Weir is a defending two-time tournament champion and the only returning champion on the Sand Springs squad. Last year Seth Jones came in runner-up, Kirby took third, Patton placed fourth, Riley Magee finished fifth, and Fincannon placed ninth. The team came in second last year and won the tournament the year before.
