Sand Springs wrestling club places second at OKUSA State Championship

Every great high school wrestling team depends on a solid feeder program to recruit kids, teach them the fundamentals, and keep them practiced and prepared for the day they’re old enough to try and crack the varsity lineup.

There are approximately ninety clubs registered with Oklahoma USA Wrestling. These clubs not only serve as the backbone for the 151 high school teams in the state, but they also develop the All-Americans, World Team members, and Olympians of the future.

For four months a year students participate in Folkstyle, the purely American style that high schools and colleges compete in. The rest of the year is dedicated to Freestyle and Greco-Roman, the two Olympic styles that the international community wrestles.

Sand Springs has had raging success in recent years with their Team Big wrestling club. The Sandites have crowned State, National, Pan-American, and World Champions in multiple age groups. They are frequently among the top-scoring teams in Oklahoma competitions.

In 2019 Team Big decided to rebrand under its original name from the 1980s – the Keystone Kids. The club features two former NCAA All-American coaches in Jarrod Patterson and TeDon Fleischman, as well as Chris Forbes, Kyle Waag, and a large community of volunteers with extensive wrestling experience.

The Keystone Kids placed second overall at the OKUSA Freestyle/Greco State Tournament last month with 348.5 team points, right behind Broken Arrow’s J4 Wrestling Club with 356. They placed first in Bantam Greco-Roman.

Christian Forbes, Grady Mittasch, Mason Harris, and Carter Young won Freestyle State titles, while Elijah Pagonis, Matthew Moore, and Abraham Flores won Greco-Roman titles. Gavin Wallace was the only Keystone Kid to win State in both styles, outscoring his opponents 58-0.

The next competition opportunity for the Keystone Kids is the Southern Plains Regional tournament coming up this weekend in Mulvane, Kansas.

OSU Wrestling: Daton Fix finishes freshman season as NCAA Finalist and All-American

IMG_3279.jpg

Sand Springs native Daton Fix added another pair of impressive accolades to his ever-growing resume Saturday. The Oklahoma State University redshirt freshman earned All-American status with a second-place finish at the NCAA Wrestling Tournament.

Fix was a four-time undefeated State Champion at Charles Page High School and recently won the Big 12 title at 133 pounds.

In the NCAA finals he fell 4-2 in sudden victory overtime to Nick Suriano, who he has a longstanding rivalry with.

Suriano shares a nearly identical resume with the Cowboy. Four-time undefeated New Jersey Champion, Big Ten Champion, and NCAA finalist. Both have spent time ranked first in the nation throughout high school and college, and now they have a split 2-2 record.

Fix won their first meeting in an ultimate tie-breaker at the 2014 Cadet National finals, but Suriano paid it back later that year. The Jersey wrestler scored a takedown 26 minutes into overtime for a 3-1 win at the FloWrestling Who’s Number One event. The two set the all-time record for longest high school match at 32:12.

Five years later, Fix took the lead in the series in a dual between Oklahoma State and Rutgers in January. He got the win in overtime after Suriano was penalized for hands to the face.

Saturday’s bout went the way of the first three. Each wrestler scored a single escape in regulation and went scoreless in the first sudden victory period. Fix took a 2-1 lead with a stalling point in the second tiebreaker, but Suriano got the escape in the final moments to force another overtime. Finally, Suriano scored a takedown for the win.

The match was not without controversy. Fix fans objected to a stalemate call in overtime that led to Suriano’s escape, and wanted a penalty on Suriano for contact with Fix’s headgear moments before the takedown. On the other side of the fence, Suriano backers criticized Fix’s lack of aggression, believing he should have been called for stalling on multiple occasions.

Fix started the season 21-0 with a 26-straight win streak dating back to his 2018 redshirt season, and ended with a 35-2 overall record. He had the second-best win percentage (.945) at 133 pounds, trailing only third-place finisher Stevan Micic (19-1), and the second-most total wins, trailing only DJ Fehlman (36-8).

In addition to his Big 12 title, Fix also won the Oklahoma City Open, the Reno Tournament of Champions, and the Southern Scuffle. His only loss besides Suriano was to ACC Champion Micky Phillippi (21-4), who was eliminated one round-short of All-American status. He defeated five of the eight 133-pound All-Americans this season, including Suriano, Luke Pletcher, Austin DeSanto, John Erneste, and Ethan Lizak.

Fix was the tenth Oklahoma State freshman to make it to the NCAA finals. He had the best NCAA finish for an OSU freshman since 2003, and he is the 38th All-American freshman in OSU history.

Oklahoma State placed third in team standings with 84 points, trailing Penn State (137.5) and Ohio State (96.5). Iowa finished fourth with 76. The Pokes didn’t crown any champions, but had five All-Americans in Fix (2nd), Derek White (2nd), Preston Weigel (3rd), Nick Piccininni (5th), and Dakota Greer (7th).

The Pokes went 15-0 in dual action and won their seventh-straight Big 12 Title. They will graduate three of their nine NCAA qualifiers, including Weigel and White.

Per usual, the Pokes will bring in a solid recruiting class next season, including
132 No. 4 Reece Witcraft, two-time State Champion from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.
132 Colt Newton, three-time State Finalist from Choctaw, Oklahoma.
152 Chance McLane, three-time State Champion from Bozeman, Montana.
160 No. 2 Brevin Balmeceda, three-time State Champion from South Dade, Florida.
160 No. 11 Dan Manibog, three-time State Champion from Katy, Texas.
170 Cade Lindsey, State Champion from Derby, Kansas.
182 Triston Wills, two-time State Champion from Derby, Kansas.

CPHS Wrestling: Scott Patton named to All-State East Team, Sand Springs to host

Scott Patton 001.JPG

Charles Page High School senior Scott Patton was named to the Oklahoma Coaches Association All State Wrestling Team Tuesday. He will compete on the Large East team in a dual on July 24th.

Patton went 7-2 as a freshman and placed fifth at the Jay Hancock Memorial. He didn’t compete his sophomore year but earned a starting spot and a 28-20 record as a junior. That year he placed sixth at the Perry Tournament of Champions, 20th at the Kansas City Stampede, fourth at the Bobby Lyons Invitational, and fourth at the Regional Championship.

Patton’s senior year was a dream. He had the best record on the team at 31-2 and won thirty-consecutive matches. He led the team in reversals, was second in takedowns and match points, and fourth in team points. He placed third at Perry, won the Cushing Tiger Invitational, the Jerry Billings Invitational, and the Regional Championship, and placed second at the State Tournament.

His only losses this season were to two-time Kansas State Champion Montez Robinson and two-time Oklahoma State Champion Drake Vannoy. He went 2-1 against Vannoy this season, beating him in a dual and in the Regional finals.

In his career Patton went 66-24 with 24 falls, 3 tech falls, 15 major decisions, 124 takedowns, 175 nearfall points, 61 reversals, and 622 match points.

The All State dual will be held Wednesday, July 24th at 7:00 p.m. at the Ed Dubie Field House in Sand Springs. Patton will meet Duncan’s Hunter Jump (137-15), a two-time State Champion and four-time Finalist at the 5A level.

NCAA Wrestling: Daton Fix wins Big 12 Championship, earns No. 1 seed at NCAAs

IMG_3346.jpg

Charles Page High School graduate and Oklahoma State University red-shirt freshman Daton Fix (30-1) is headed to the NCAA National Wrestling Championship next week in Pittsburgh, and he got a huge vote of confidence from the seeding committee on Wednesday.

Fix earned the No. 1 seed after winning the Big 12 Conference Championship last weekend in Tulsa. The Big 12 is the second-best represented conference at the tournament with 62 qualifiers.

The Sandite pinned Rylee Molitor in 6:01, and defeated No. 16 Matthew Schmitt 6-1, No. 12 Montorie Bridges 4-2, and No. 29 Gary Joint 7-3 at the Big 12 Tournament, helping the Pokes to their seventh-straight team title. He was one of six Cowboys to earn individual gold.

The NCAAs are a double-elimination tournament with 33 qualifiers per weight class. The top eight finishers will earn All-American status. The first two rounds of the tournament will be held Thursday, followed by the quarterfinals and semis on Friday, and the Championship rounds Saturday night.

In his first match, Fix will take on the winner of No. 32 Devan Turner vs. No. 33 Zack Trampe. He already has wins over eleven 133-pound NCAA Qualifiers, including the defending Champ, No. 3 Nick Suriano (24-3).

Fix’s biggest challengers are both on the opposite side of the bracket. He only beat Suriano in an overtime tie-breaker with a controversial hands-to-the-face penalty. No. 2 Stevan Micic (14-0) is undefeated and also has a 3-2 win over Suriano but is wrestling injured and defaulted his last three matches of the Big Ten Tournament.

No. 7 Austin DeSanto (18-4), No. 13 Austin Gomez (21-5), and Bridges (29-8) are all tough competitors who lost to Fix by two points or less. Gomez and Bridges are both on Fix’s side of the bracket, as is No. 4 Mickey Phillipi (19-2) who upset Fix 3-1 and Suriano 11-3.

Fix’s ranked wins include:

  • No. 3 Nick Suriano (Rutgers) 3-2 TB.

  • No. 6 Ethan Lizak (Minnesota) 6-1.

  • No. 7 Austin DeSanto (Iowa) 2-0.

  • No. 8 John Erneste (Missouri) 9-2.

  • No. 12 Montorie Bridges (Wyoming) 4-2, 3-0.

  • No. 14 Austin Gomez (Iowa State) 5-4, 6-3.

  • No. 16 Matthew Schmitt (West Virginia) 6-1, 8-2.

  • No. 17 Sean Nickel (CSU Bakersfield) 18-3, 3:56.

  • No. 18 Gary Wayne Harding (North Carolina) 10-2.

  • No. 20 Brandon Paetzell (Lehigh) 7-1.

  • No. 29 Gary Joint (Fresno State) 7-3.

CPHS Wrestling: 2018-2019 Season Rewind and Statistics

IMG_4716.JPG

In a season filled with adversity, the Sandites got a good look at the resiliency of their program. For the second straight year the Minutemen took tough losses but found ways to reload and make another solid run at the gold.

University of Oklahoma All American Jarrod Patterson took over a program that had finished top-four in the state six years running. The season didn’t end on a strong note, but it started hot and was an exciting ride with a 15-5 dual record, a District title, and a lot of wins along the way.

The Charles Page wrestlers won their first five duals of the year before falling to the eventual State Champions, nationally ranked No. 18 Broken Arrow. They rebounded with their fourth-straight District title, went 4-3 at a loaded Ram Dual Tournament, won homecoming, and made it to the Dual State Semifinals. Of the five teams they lost to, three went on to win State titles.

They finished top-four at the Perry Tournament of Champions, the Jerry Billings Invitational, and the 6A-East Regional with six individual champions along the way. They qualified six for State, four earned medals, and five will return next season.

The Minutemen had to settle for seventh place at the State Tournament due to an injury-depleted roster, but top seven out of 32 teams is still a respectable finish.

Josh Fincannon placed fourth at Cushing and Sapulpa and eighth at Kansas City. A likely State Qualifier, he was unable to compete at Regionals due to a battle with appendicitis He notched a 3-2 decision over Alabama State Champion Isaac McAdams.

Freshman Christian Forbes placed fifth at Perry and Glenpool and sixth at Cushing. He won 5-0 against Kansas State Finalist Trent Clements and pinned State Finalist Brody Gee.

Freshman Kaden Glass placed tenth at Kansas City, third at Cushing, second at Sapulpa and Regionals, and won the Junior High Allstate title. He won 7-4 against State Finalist Nico Lopez.

Freshman Blake Jones placed third at both Perry and Regionals, and won the Junior High Allstate title. He won 4-1 over State Finalist Dylan Brown.

Seth Jones placed fourth at Perry, fifth at Sapulpa, third at Regionals and fourth State. He pinned Kansas State Finalist Kael Pappan and dealt State Champion Zach Blankenship his only loss of the season.

Chris Kirby placed fourth at Perry, thirteenth at Kansas City, second at Cushing, first at Sapulpa, third at Regionals, and fourth at State. He pinned Kansas State Finalist Nolan Craine and Texas State Champion Mario Danzi, and led the team with thirty falls.

Scott Patton was the star of the season. The senior became only the fifth Sandite of the 21st century to win thirty-consecutive matches. He placed third at Perry, won Cushing, Sapulpa, and Regionals, and finished second at State. His only losses were close decisions to two-time Arkansas State Champion Montez Robinson and two-time State Champion Drake Vannoy. Patton actually defeated Vannoy twice but was battling through injury at State. He also defeated State Finalist Abel Perez and two-time State Champ Hadyn Redus.

Two-time State Champ Riley Weir had an injury-plagued senior season and was unable to defend his title. He placed sixth at KCI and third at Sapulpa, notching wins over Kansas State Finalist Zach Keal, two-time Missouri State Champion Karter Brink, and State Finalist Jared Hill.

Brendon Wiseley became the first-ever OSSAA State Qualifier with a prosthetic leg and ended the season as a State Finalist. He placed third at Perry, twelfth at KCI, third at Sapulpa, first at Glenpool, and first at Regionals. Of his twelve losses, all but three came at the hands of State Finalists. He defeated Kansas State Finalist Trent Clements at Perry, and went on a fourteen-match win streak near the end of the season.

Patton, Weir, Taylor, and Justin Smith were the only seniors, so the Sandites will be in good shape next season with a loaded roster of experienced talent.

Sand Springs placed top-three in the tournament for four straight years, but battled adversity this season. They lost State Champion Carter Young and State Runner-Up Kaleb Tabor to transfers, and State Champion Riley Weir and State Qualifier Dayvon Taylor were unable to finish the season due to injuries.

Nationally-ranked No. 17 Broken Arrow won their tenth State title by a wide margin with three State Champions and seven Finalists.

Of the eight returning 6A State Champions only four defended their titles. Reece Witcraft and Drake Vannoy won their second titles. Broken Arrow senior Zach Marcheselli and Choctaw senior Zane Coleman each finished their high school careers as four-timers.

The historic Perry program added to their team title national record, winning their 43rd State tournament in the 3A division. They crowned three Champions, bringing the school total to 113 individuals with 173 medals.

Nationally-ranked No. 9 Tuttle crushed the 4A competition for their sixteenth title with six champions.

Highway 20 rivals Collinsville and Skiatook split the 5A title with 137 points each. Collinsville crowned four champions and Skiatook had three. Two teams haven’t shared a title since 1932 when there was only one classification and Tulsa Central and Cushing tied.

The Sandite lost his first match 14-8 to Putnam City senior Rene Martinez (28-3), but won twice in consolation before falling in the placement match. He pinned Jenks junior Killian McGrew in 1:34 and scored an 8-4 decision against Broken Arrow junior Tye Rozell (25-9) to clinch a placement match.

CPHS Wrestling: Scott Patton places second at State Championship

IMG_4810.JPG

Charles Page High School senior Scott Patton wrestled through an injury for second place in the 152-pound bracket at the OSSAA 6A State Wrestling Tournament Saturday evening in Oklahoma City.

The Sandite lost his second match of the season, then rattled off 31 consecutive victories before falling to the defending State Champion, who he had previously beaten twice this season.

Patton won 13-0 against Southmoore sophomore Joe Stover (37-10) and 6-1 over Broken Arrow senior Diego Maturino (33-14) to make his way to the finals. There he fell 5-1 to defending State Champion Drake Vannoy (35-11), a junior from Jenks.

Patton previously defeated Vannoy 6-2 in a dual, and 4-2 in the Regional Tournament, but was unable to repeat. The Trojan scored takedowns in the first and second periods and the injured Sandite could only manage an escape.

Patton finished the season 31-2 with a 66-24 career record. As a senior he placed third at Perry, first at Cushing, first at Sapulpa, and first at Regionals.

This is Vannoy’s second-straight year beating a Sandite in the finals. He won his first title 5-3 against Kaleb Tabor, who transferred to Berryhill this past summer.

He made his way to the 126-pound consolation finals with a payback pin of Broken Arrow sophomore Blazik Perez (28-11), who had previously defeated him twice this season, but lost the placement match to Deer Creek sophomore Cade Manion (37-7). Manion beat him 5-1 in the quarterfinals and 9-2 in placement.

Jones got a lucky break in the consolation quarterfinals, receiving a medical forfeit from former State Champion Laif Jones (32-5) who had previously bested him twice this season.

Jones finished the season with a 22-15 record, bringing his career total to 44-29. He also qualified for State last season but did not place. He placed fifth this season at Sapulpa, fourth at Perry, and third in the Regional Championship.

Former Sandite Carter Young (42-4), who transferred to Stillwater after winning State as a freshman, settled for second place at 126, falling 5-1 to Mustang freshman John Wiley (29-3).

Brendan Wiseley.JPG

The Charles Page High School wrestling team is sitting in fifth place after day one at the OSSAA 6A State Tournament. The Sandites sent two to the finals and have three still in contention on the back side of the bracket.

Top-ranked 106-pound junior Brendon Wiseley (38-11, 52-19) won a 6-2 decision over Owasso senior Jared Campbell (34-7) in the semifinals. Campbell scored a takedown in the second period, but Wiseley scored a takedown in the first, a reversal in the third, and a pair of escapes for the win. He will wrestle Edmond Memorial junior Cruz Aguilar (24-3) in the finals.

Top-ranked 152-pound senior Scott Patton (31-1, 66-23) won his thirtieth-straight match 6-1 over Broken Arrow senior Diego Maturino (33-13) in the semifinals. Patton scored a takedown, a reversal, and a set of nearfall points in the win. In the finals he will take on defending State Champion Drake Vannoy (35-11), a junior from Jenks. Patton has previously beaten Vannoy twice this season.

Freshman Kaden Glass (32-10) fell to top-ranked 195-pound Deer Creek senior Carson Savage (37-2) in the semifinals. Glass scored a takedown midway through the first period, but Savage worked up a 6-2 lead before pinning the Sandite. Glass will take on Union senior Elijah Tomlin (37-8) in the Consolation Semifinals. He is 3-0 against Tomlin this season.

Strachan, a Bartlesville senior, has more mat experience and could give Blankenship a run for his money. Blankenship has two wins over Strachan, but both were only 5-4 decisions. Strachan has wins over Becker and Hill.

Edmond Memorial freshman Jake McCain (22-5) won the West Regional and has wins over Valenzuela, Nicholas, and Manny Rogers (26-6). Nicholas (35-7) is a 3A State Champion transfer from Perry and Stillwater sophomore. Becker is the only other returning State Qualifier.

Trent Owens, Ashford, and Rowland are also returning State Qualifiers.

Another tough challenger for the title is Sand Springs freshman Kaden Glass who won the Junior High Allstate title this year.
