Area wrestling trio wins titles at Inola tournament

INOLA — Three local wrestlers finished first at the Inola tournament on Saturday night.

Sequoyah's Will Tiger (126 pounds) beat Catoosa's Conner Parent by technical fall for the Indians' lone gold medal at the tournament. Tiger advanced to the championship match by beating Wagoner's Eli Brumnett, Oologah's Dylan Boswell and Hulbert's Laz Chavez - all by fall.

The individual title is Tiger's second of the season after winning the 126 championship at the Joe Cole Classic in Cleveland earlier this year.

For Keys, Seth Fritts, the No. 1 seed, knocked off Jay's Kaleb Reece at 160 pounds. Fritts, winning an individual title for the second straight year at the Inola tournament, beat Reece by technical fall

Hulbert's Bryson McGowan atoned for his second-place finish last season by winning the 220-pound division. McGowan's win by fall came against Barnsdall's Baylee Perigo.

"It feels good but it's not my ultimate goal," said McGowan, who lost to Barnsdall's Caleb Hawes in the 195-pound finals at last season's Inola tournament. "I'm just ready for March 1 around 10 p.m. for the real title."

Jay rallied on the second day of the tournament to win the team title. The Bulldogs tallied 205.5 points and beat Sperry - the leader after the first day - by 15.5 points. Broken Arrow junior varsity (151), Barnsdall (151) and Oologah (124) rounded out th rest of the top five.

Hulbert led the trio of area teams with 91 points. Matt Clay (106), Chavez both finished fifth for the Riders, while James Clay (120) had to settle for sixth.

Sequoyah, outside of Tiger, had two other placers: Damon Davidson (132) in fifth and Nolan Philpott (285) in sixth. The Indians logged 66.5 points for 13th place.

Keys was 16th with 55.5 points. The Cougars only other top-fix finisher was John Haeberle at 145.

Up next for Keys and Sequoyah will be a District 3A-7 dual at Keys on Tuesday night. Hulbert will be at Inola to take on Sperry, Jay, Salina and Inola in 3A-7 action.
