Collinsville leads after Day 1 of East Regional

Sports Editor

— Collinsville's reign over Class 5A continued on Friday as the Cardinals rolled to a commanding lead at the 5A East Regional at the Tahlequah Multipurpose Activity Center. On Friday, the Cardinals — the three-time defending 5A state champions — landed nine in the finals, which will be wrestled at 6 p.m. on Saturday.

Tahlequah had two — Hestin Lamons (152 pounds) and Reese Davis (160) — win in the semifinals to claim spots at next week's state tournament in Oklahoma City. Mitch Sellers (145) and Zech VanFleet (132) both lost in the semifinals and will have to wrestle in the consolation bracket, which will start at noon on Saturday.

Collinsville leads with 220 points with Coweta in a distant second at 115.5. Shawnee is third at 111.
