Fritts finishes 4th at Tuttle

Wrestling notebook

Medals were hard to come by at the Greg Henning Invitational in Tuttle over the weekend. For both Keys and Sequoyah, one medal apiece was all the local teams could come back with.

Keys’ Seth Fritts (160 pounds) came in fourth place after a loss 5-4 loss to Marlow’s Seth Scarbrough in the consolation championship match. Fritts lost by fall at 1:27 to Cushing’s Gage Stallworth in the championship semifinals, but he rallied with a 9-4 win over Comanche’s Skylar Stengel in the consolation semifinals.

As a team, the Cougars managed just 30 points, which landed them in 20th place.

“We wrestled well this weekend even though we only had one guy place,” Keys coach Travis Kirby said. “We got to see where we’re at compared to some of the other 3A teams on the west side of the state, and I was pleased with how we did against them.”

Tiger gets 5th for Sequoyah

Sequoyah’s lone top-six finisher at the Tuttle tournament was Will Tiger at 126 pounds. Tiger posted a 9-0 major decision victory over Marlow’s Chris Davis for fifth place.

Tiger lost by fall at 4:34 in the championship quarterfinals to Harrah’s Ryan Rutherford. Tiger, though, rallied with wins over Westmoore’s Trey Painter (12-2 major decision) and Comanche’s Shayne Revels (fall at 2:48) to reach the consolation semifinals. There he lost to Cushing’s Mason Roberts by fall at 1:58.

The Indians finished in 17th place with 54 points.

“The tournament was everything we expected,” Sequoyah coach Brad Jones said. “Tough is an understatement.

“We competed the entire tournament but just came up short on the matches that mattered. I believe we took a big step for our program by showing up to one of the toughest tournaments in Oklahoma.”

Tigers claim tourney title

Class 4A powerhouse Tuttle picked up just enough points to knock off Cushing at the Greg Henning Invitational. The Tigers landed 243.5 points while Cushing recorded 231.5.

Beau Guffey (120 pounds), Blake Dauphin (126), Brik Filippo (132), Dayton Garrett (138), Dakota Head (152) and Riley Fielder (220) all won individual crowns for Tuttle.

Sallisaw (178.5) — with Gabe Taylor (145), Cale Wilson (182) and Jadon Davenport (195) all claiming individual championships — came in third place. Newkirk and Westmoore and both tied for fourth with 157 points.
