Christian Forbes goes undefeated with Cadet Dual Team

Oklahoma Schoolboys place 2nd in Freestyle Nationals, 3rd in Greco-Roman, girls 7th


A handful of wrestlers with Sand Springs ties competed on the Oklahoma Schoolboy Wrestling teams recently in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Oklahoma had enough quality athletes to send two full rosters to the USA Wrestling National Dual Tournament.

The Oklahoma Blue team made it to the Freestyle finals for the first time since 2006, falling 39-33 to Pennsylvania. Oklahoma Red placed 14th out of 39 teams from 29 states.

Oklahoma Red took third place in Greco-Roman action while Oklahoma Blue placed eighth, marking the first time both teams have qualified for the Gold/Silver Pool. 28 states sent 38 teams to the tournament.

Mason Harris went 7-1 in the heavyweight slot for the Oklahoma Blue Freestyle team with one pin, two technical falls, three decisions, and one forfeit. He defeated Minnesota State Champion Elias Ruiz 10-0, Washington State Champion Daniel Matagi 10-0, and Pennsylvania State Champion Dominick Curci 5-0. Harris was 2-5 for the Red Greco team, beating Wisconsin State Champion Griffin Empey 12-4.

Keystone Kids Grady Mittasch, Cameron White, and Abraham Flores competed on the Oklahoma Red Freestyle team and the Blue Greco team.

Mittasch went 4-1 at 87 pounds in Freestyle with three tech falls and a decision. He defeated Utah State Champion Brayden Robison 10-0, and Indiana State Champion Jake Hockaday 20-9. Mittasch was 2-3 in Greco. He pinned Hockaday and defeated Kansas State Champion Dillon Cooper 14-3.

They won their fifth Freestyle title in nine finals appearances, and their sixth Greco title in nine appearances. This was their third time to sweep both styles in the same year.

Tulsa hosted the inaugural Schoolgirl Freestyle Duals and seven states competed. Wisconsin went 6-0 for the title. Oklahoma went 1-5 for 7th place in a tournament with lots of parity and circular losses. They tied Runner-Up Illinois 26-26 and only lost on criteria, then beat 5th Place finisher Minnesota 35-21.

Oklahoma Junior Dual Team wins Freestyle National Championship, Forbes goes 6-2


One Sandite and one former Sandite recently competed on the Oklahoma Junior Dual teams in both Freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling. The Greco-Roman team placed fourth at the National Tournament, while the Freestyle Team won the National Title for the first time since 2015.

Christian Forbes will be a sophomore at Charles Page High School this coming year. Carter Young won State as a freshman at Sand Springs before transferring to Stillwater last season. Both are internationally-competitive athletes. In 2016 the two traveled to Medelin, Columbia to compete in the Pan-American Championship. Forbes took silver in both styles, while Young won gold in Freestyle and silver in Greco.

At this week’s Freestyle Dual tournament Forbes went 6-2 at 100 pounds, beating Arkansas State Champion Tristan Stafford 5-4, Ohio’s Zach Bellissimo 10-0, New Jersey’s John Hildebrandt 11-0, and Ohio State Champion Marlon Yarbrough 10-0. He also received two forfeits. His only losses were to Jore Volk and Daniel Sheen, who both went undefeated,

Young went undefeated 6-0 at 126 in Freestyle, beating two-time Arkansas State Champion Jacob Adams 12-0, New Jersey’s Nicholas Digiacomo 10-0, Ohio State Champion Jimmy Carmany 10-0, Minnesota State Champion Jake Svihel 14-3, and Illinois’s Brody Norman 10-0. He also received an injury forfeit from Ohio’s Camron Lacure.

Oklahoma made it to the Championship round for the first time since winning back-to-back titles in 2014 and 2015. It was their fourth finals appearance of the past ten years. Illinois made it to the finals for the eighth time in the past decade. The Land of Lincoln won four-straight titles at the start of the decade, but has come up short four times since then, twice to Oklahoma.

The Okies beat Illinois 32-31, marking the second straight year that the finals have been decided by a single point. Oklahoma beat the defending Champions from Ohio and the returning Runners-Up from Minnesota en route to the Championship round.

Illinois had more fortune in Greco-Roman, where they won their third-straight title and eighth title since 2009. The dynastic program has only failed to make the finals once in the past eleven years in Greco-Roman. Oklahoma settled for fourth place after coming in Runner-Up last year.

Forbes went 4-0 in the 100-pound slot with one forfeit. He scored an 11-6 decision over Missouri’s Cael Keck and teched Yarbrough 10-0. His most notable win was a 5-2 decision over Iowa’s Brandon O’Brien, a 2016 Cadet Pan-American Champion.

Young went 1-1 in the 126-pound slot, which he shared with TJ Long. He defeated Nebraska’s Dyson Kunz 10-1, but fell 8-4 to Missouri’s Eli Rocha.

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.

The Sand Springs Team Big wrestling club sent fourteen wrestlers to the Junior High Allstate Wrestling tournament in Oklahoma City last weekend and crowned two State Champions and one runner-up at the event. Freshmen standouts Blake Jones and Kaden Glass each won titles

The Allstate tournament has two age divisions: Sixth/Seventh Grade and Eighth/Ninth Grade, and a girls’ division for 8th/9th. Unlike the High School State Tournament, there are no divisions based on school size, guaranteeing that the best wrestlers at every weight class meet in the finals. The team points for the three age divisions are also combined.

Choctaw won the team title with 146 points over Bixby’s Roller Academy of Wrestling at 132. Tuttle placed third, and Stillwater came in fourth. Sand Springs placed ninth with 54 points in a field of over 130 teams.

Jones won the Junior High State title at 133 pounds with four first-period falls and a pair of close decisions. He pinned Roman Rowland in 1:39, Davaun Jones in 0:47, Jonah Stephenson in 1:03, and Jesse Boyd in 1:22. In the semifinals he scored a 4-2 decision over Bartlesville’s Duke McGill, and in the finals he defeated Tuttle’s Jack Golowenski 5-3. He outscored his opponents 30-5 and only gave up one takedown.

Glass won the Junior High State Title at 200 pounds with six first-period falls and a 3-2 decision against Piedmont’s James Maguire. He took down Blake Rice in 0:37, Brady Neasby in 0:44, Brock Estes in 0:25, Adley Bufford in 0:49, Connor Columbus in 0:29, and Kaylon Wolf in 1:41 in the finals. In his seven matches he averaged only 92 seconds on the mat.

Both Glass and Jones are members of the varsity team at Charles Page High School, which is ranked fifth in Class 6A and headed to the Dual State Championship in Shawnee on Friday. Jones holds a 19-10 varsity record, while Glass holds the second-best record on the team at 25-8 and has the second-most falls on the team at eighteen.

Mason Harris came in Runner-Up in the 6th/7th Grade Heavyweight bracket. He pinned Charlie Venegas in eleven seconds, then defeated Jonah Marshall 2-1, Joe Davis 5-1, and Lane Gourley 7-0 before falling to Sperry’s Gunner Wilson in the finals.

Ethan White placed fifth at Junior High 138 with a 7-2 record. He pinned Cameron Clark in 0:45 and Daigen Gibbens in 0:37 and won five decisions.

He was defeated 9-7 by Isaiah Davis and 7-2 by Chance Cobb, but got a payback win over Daivs 7-0 in the placement round.

While Gilman represents the United States in Budapest, Hungary in October, Fix will aim to repeat his Junior Championship in Trnava, Slovakia in September.

CPHS sophomore Carter Young (45-9) got off to a great start at 113 pounds in the Cadet competition, winning his first three matches by technical fall before falling 12-6 to nationally ranked No. 12 Anthony Noto. Christian Forbes (14-2) competed at 94 pounds and went 4-2.

Oklahoma Blue placed fifth at the Schoolboy Freestyle Duals in Indianapolis, Indiana. They defeated South Carolina 82-3, Nebraska 58-22, Minnesota 62-17, Georgia 59-21, and Ohio 42-37.

Wrestling: Daton Fix to take on defending Silver Medalist for ticket to World Championships

Daton Fix concluded his high school career in 2017 as a four-time undefeated State Champion with a 168-0 record. 

Daton Fix concluded his high school career in 2017 as a four-time undefeated State Champion with a 168-0 record. 

Oklahoma State University freshman and Charles Page High School Class of 2017 graduate Daton Fix (15-3) is back in the spotlight as the Final X Senior World Team Trial approaches. On Saturday, June 9 Fix will travel to Lincoln, Nebraska to take on Thomas Gilman in the last rung of the ladder to the World Championships.

In April Fix placed second at the U.S. Open, outscoring his first three opponents 24-0 with two first-period technical falls before falling 2-2 to University North Carolina assistant coach Tony Ramos. The former NCAA National Champion was awarded the win on criteria, but Fix got a rematch in May and made up for the loss.

At the Senior World Team Trials three weeks ago, Fix again made quick work of his pre-finals opponents. He teched former Oklahoma State All-American Eddie Klimara 14-2 in 2:07, topped former Illinois All-American Zane Richards 9-2, then teched former Minnesota All-American Zane 10-0 in 2:00. Fix won a best-of-three finals series against Ramos with 4-3 and 10-3 decisions.

On Saturday Fix will attempt to upset Gilman, who won Silver at the 2017 World Championship in Paris, France. While Gilman was coming in Runner-Up in France, Fix was going the distance for Gold at the Junior Championships in Tampere, Finland.

Fix has an extensive international resume at the Junior level, including Worlds Bronze in 2016, but is still relatively new to the Senior scene. He swept the Under 23 World Team Trials in October but was eliminated in the first round at Poland.

Fix made his debut at No. 15 in the FloWrestling International Freestyle rankings after topping Ramos. Gilman dropped from seventh to thirteenth in those same rankings after falling to Cuba’s Reineri Ortega in the Pan-American Championships.

The first round of the trials will kick off at 6:00 p.m. Central Time in Bob Devaney Sports Center at the University of Nebraska. Fix and Gilman will be the fifth of seven matches on the card. Round two will begin approximately at 7:15 and the final round will be at 8:30.

Also defending their spots on the Mens’ World Team are 70 KG Silver Medalist James Green, 74 KG Champion Jordan Burroughs, and 97 KG Champion Kyle Snyder.

This year’s World Championship will be held in Budapest, Hungary October 20-28.
