While the Sandite basketball teams were battling out a couple of hard-fought barn burners in the field house next door, the Sandite wrestling team secured their Highway 97 Rivalry win with ease Tuesday evening at the Sapulpa High School gym.
All three Charles Page High School teams won their bouts with the Cheiftains, but the No. 5 ranked wrestling team absolutely dominated Sapulpa 69-6 to improve to 4-0 on the season, while their foes fell to 0-5.
Sapulpa voided five weight classes, giving up thirty free points to their rivals. Colton Luker (106), Brendon Wiseley (113), Seth Jones (126), Braden Dahl (160), and Thomas Naugle (195) all received forfeits.
Sand Springs won eight of the remaining nine matches, including four first-period falls. Riley Weir (120) pinned Colton Parrish in 0:19, Chris Kirby (170) pinned Tanner Boren in 0:47, Riley Magee (220) pinned Brandon Holland in 1:37, and Josh Fincannon (285) pinned Blake Brooks in 1:17.
Joseph Mattison won a 14-6 major decision over Justin Campbell at 132 pounds for a 28-0 lead before the Chieftains put their first and only points on the board. Luke Young pinned Jared Jenkins in 1:53 in the Sandite’s varsity debut to avert the Sandite shutout.
Preston Medlin (145) decisioned Simon Young 9-2, Scott Patton (152) majored Colt Konell 13-4, and Santana Naugle (182) majored Payton Malone 8-0.
Sand Springs will return to action Thursday at 7:00 p.m. when they host No. 11 Union (3-1). The Sandites and Chieftains will meet again Friday at the Jerry Billings Invitational.
The Junior High squad also won their Tuesday night dual 43-31 against Bixby. Kaden Glass, Brooks Dudley, Cody Cramer, Chase White, Blake Jones, Carter Goodman, Cameron White, and Mitchell Smith all picked up wins.
