Maverick Conference Notebook

106: Wagoner's Trey Ivy, the No. 4 seed, knocked off McAlester's Dalton Rippy with a rally in the third period. Ivy scored a takedown with 40 seconds left and rode Rippy out to pick up a 3-2 victory. Ivy finished in a tie for the the tournament's most outstanding wrestler in the lower weights.

113: Jesse Hodge capped off the regular season by going three-for-three, or better yet, three titles in three regular-season tournaments (two of Jays other tournaments were dual events). Hodge, after beating Mannford's Steven Cole in the finals last week at the Paul Post Classic, knocked off Fort Gibson's Ryan Waltman with a 5-1 decision. In both tournaments, Hodge was seeded outside the top two.

120: Devin Anderson of Poteau came up short last week with a loss to Cascia Hall's Cody Lambert in the finals of the Paul Post Classic. This week, Anderson claimed a championship by posting a 10-6 decision against Jay's Trestin January.

126: Defending Class 5A state champion Donald Cannon of McAlester was forced to go a full six minutes, but he still faced little resistance in a 14-1 rout of Sequoyah's Will Tiger, the overwhelming No. 1 seed. For Cannon, it was his third individual crown of the season with one more up for grabs next week at the Bishop Kelley tournament.

132: Much like Hodge, Jay's Derick Shrum picked up his third individual crown of the season by pinning McAlester's Hunter Scott at 3:38. Shrum tied with Ivy for the tournament's most outstanding wrestler at the lower weights.

138: Taylor Compton of Greenwood (Ark.) was the only individual champion from the Natural State on Saturday. Compton scored a reversal against Sallisaw's Chance Blount with one second left to claim the championship, 4-2.

145: For the second week in a row, Sallisaw's Gabe Taylor won by major decision in a championship match. Last week, it was an 18-5 win over Poteau's Roderick Hornbuckle; seven days later it was a 11-0 rout of Jim Wilson of Cleveland. Since finishing fourth at the Bristow tournament in December, Taylor has won four straight titles (Cushing, Tuttle, Paul Post, Maverick Conference).

152: All Wagoner's Tucker Hoffman had to do was stay away from Cleveland's Tyler Myles. Instead, Myles took Hoffman down, however, it was a split second after the final buzzer. That resulted in Hoffman winning, 3-2.

160: At the Inola tournament in early December, Keys' Seth Fritts picked up a technical fall against Jay's Kaleb Reece in the championship showdown. This time, the tables were turned. Reece scored the final four points of the match to win in a rematch, 6-2. Reece also picked up most outstanding wrestler honors for the upper weights.

170: At 182 pounds at the Paul Post Classic, Stilwell's Malachi Wood didn't get a chance to wrestle for first and ended up finishing fourth. This week, he dropped to 170 and won the title with a fall at 2:20 against Jay's Jeremish Sirmans.

182: Justin Cates of Fort Gibson scored three points, but all three of those came courtesy of Sallisaw's Cale Wilson letting him up. All the other points (17) came courtesy of Wilson taking Cates down or turning him or several near-falls. Then, at the 2:43 mark, Wilson pinned Cates to get the maximum amount of bonus points.

195: Sallisaw's Jadon Davenport continued his year of dominance by pinning Fort Gibson's Logan Wood at 1:49. Davenport picked up the title after missing out on the conference tournament last season because of an illness.

220: Bryson McGowan of Hulbert had to settle for second place at year's conference tournament. That wasn't the case this year. McGowan, leading 2-1 after two periods, dominated in the third period and coasted to a 7-1 win over McAlester's Riley Smith. The individual crown is the third that McGowan has picked up this season.

285: After three second-place finishes this season, Wagoner's Derek Marshall broke through for his first championship of the season with a 3-2 win over Van Buren's Dillon Kinsey. Noticeably absent from the heavyweight finals was Stilwell's Mickey Brown, who had won his past three tournaments, including the Tuttle tournament and the Paul Post Classic. Brown lost in the semifinals to Kinsey.
