Sand Springs Wrestling Team qualifies four for Nationals

By: Scott Emigh, Editor-in-Chief

The Charles Page High School wrestling team was well represented at the OK USA National Team Qualifier at Union this weekend, and four wrestlers qualified for Nationals this summer in Fargo, North Dakota. 

Junior three-time undefeated OSSAA State Champion Daton Fix wrestled at 126 pounds in Junior Freestyle and had no problem breezing through his opponents, teching Omar Pollard and Jet Taylor 10-0 each, and receiving a forfeit from Karson Bellmard for first place.

Junior Jack Karstetter, a 2016 State Runner-Up, wrestled at 132 pounds and placed second in Junior Freestyle with a 3-1 record. He defeated Gage Gomez by 10-0 tech fall, then narrowly edged out Westmoore's Dalton Duffield in an 11-11 tie breaker. Duffield went 41-4 this past high school season and came in runner-up to Fix at the State Championships. Karstetter picked up another tech fall with an 18-8 win over Billy Simpson in the semifinals. The final round pitted Karstetter against Garrett Rowe of Choctaw. Rowe went 40-5 last season and secured his second-consecutive State Championship. Karstetter battled hard but lost by 12-8 decision.

Junior State Placer Michael Ritchey also wrestled at 132 pounds but failed to place after giving up losses to Rowe and Duffield. He did defeat Vincent Eremita 8-7 and Jacob Reeves 14-4, however. 

Senior Sage Singleton competed at 120 pounds and gave up tech falls of 10-0 and 16-6 to Zachery Bibb and Jakob Lyons, respectively. 

In the Cadet division, Sophomore State Qualifier Blake Sargent placed third in 132 with a 4-1 record. He teched Spencer Schickram 10-0 and Kenneth Wolford 11-0 before giving up an 11-6 decision to Rodrick Mosley. In the consolation bracket he once again defeated Schickram, this time 17-6, then defeated Bobby Robinson 14-8 to secure his spot at Nationals.

Clyde Boyd Middle School student Caleb Phillips wrestled at 120 and went 2-2. He teched Josiah Holliday 12-0 and pinned Cayden Nelson in 31 seconds before falling to Zach Williams by 0:53 pin. Ryder Ramsey teched Phillips 10-0 to eliminate him from contention.

Sage Singleton also wrestled at 120 pounds in Junior Greco-Roman and placed third with a 1-2 record after teching Justin McHenry 16-5, getting pinned in 0:37 by Jakob Lyons, and forfeiting to Garrett Wild. 

Sand Springs Librarian Richard Why leads double-life as professional golfer

By: Scott Emigh, Editor-in-Chief
with: Virgil Noah, Marketing Director

Local Charles Page Public Librarian Richard Why is not your typical book nerd. When he's not stocking shelves and checking out books, he can be found on disc golf courses across the Midwest, playing professionally for Team Fossa. Richard and his wife, Tara, are both sponsored by Fossa Disc Golf. Richard is also sponsored by Millennium Golf Discs. 

Why played competitive ball golf throughout high school, but made the switch to disc golf after graduating.

"I realized how expensive it was. Playing disc golf for free really appealed to my college budget. I bought one disc and met (a friend) at the Riverside disc golf course one day after work and that's where it all started." 

The twenty-nine-year-old father of one has been competing in PDGA events since 2010 when he took 8th place in the Advanced division in his first tournament, the Oklahoma Open. Why continued golfing in Advanced through 2011 and won his first tournament on February 4th, 2012.

"The real turning point for me came in 2012 when I beat everyone in my division by 8 strokes and my overall score would have placed me at second in the Pro Open division. Seeing the other guys walk away with a couple hundred dollars in cash looked way better than my stack of discs I had won, so I decided to move up and start playing in the Pro division," says Why.

That tournament was the Dynamic Discs Winter Warm-Up, a B-tier event held in Lewisville, Texas. In his division alone, he bested 39 other golfers.

Two weeks later he made his professional debut at the Dynamic Discs Cedar Hill Chill in Cedar Hill, Texas and tied for last place in a tough competition that included Eric McCabe and Jay "Yeti" Reading. He didn't let that loss weigh him down, however, and finished top-ten in his next five tournaments.

"When I first started out I didn't really follow disc golf too much. I watched Youtube videos on how to play and get better but didn't know of many touring Pros. I do admire Paul McBeth though, he is the current No.1 ranked player in the world and has won the last 4 World Championships in a row. He is taking disc golf more mainstream. He is well spoken and a great ambassador for the sport for younger players."

Why finally won his first pro tournament in July that same year, finishing three strokes ahead of Matthew Wright at the 3rd annual Monkey Trap Open in Springdale, Arkansas. At the same time, he was on his way to a first place finish at the ten-round, ten-week league event, McClure Monday Mayhem, here in Tulsa. 

In 2013 he took first place at the 5th Annual Lucky 13, the Denison Parks and Recreation Open, and the Oklahoma State Flying Disc Championship. He finished top-ten in all but two of his 18 tournaments that year.

In 2014 he placed first at the Battle at Bell Park, the Doer at McClure, and the Kan-U-Wyco in Wyandotte, Kansas. At Wyco he pulled a major upset over 2010 World Champion Eric McCabe by a single stroke. In January of 2015, he came in fourth place at the Dynamic Discs Winter Warm Up, finishing a single stroke behind McCabe.

"Personally, Disc Golf has impacted my life on quite a large scale. I play almost every weekend with my wife and son. It's a great form of exercise and gives me a chance to spend time in many of the beautiful parks around the Tulsa area.  It has introduced me to so many great people, it has also given me the opportunity to travel to some places I probably never would have gone if it wasn't for disc golf. I have been to the 4 surrounding states many times, Texas, Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas, but I have also traveled as far away as Georgia and South Carolina to compete."

Tulsa has a rich history of disc golf, being one of the earliest cities to embrace the sport. According to PDGA records, there were only 60 courses on the planet in 1980. Tulsa had five of them. 

Today there are 15 in Tulsa and 24 in the greater Metro area. Sand Springs used to have a 9 hole golf course at Ray Brown Park, next to the High School. Those baskets were relocated to River City Parks in 2012 to be used in a new 18 hole course. That course is currently unplayable as many of the baskets and tee pads are uprooted due to renovations the park is going through. The construction of the new splash pad and handicapped parking have bisected the course and it's uncertain when it will be playable again.

Why hosts an annual summer technique clinic for kids at Charles Page Library. This year it will be on August 3rd at 10:30 AM. When the couple isn't golfing, they often help run tournaments and participate in course cleanup days around Tulsa. 

9 Sandites remain at State, only slightly behind Broken Arrow and Choctaw

The remaining Sandites have about an hour long break before the next round begins at the 6A State Championship in Oklahoma City. 

Charles Page wrestling qualified eleven for the tournament with seven Regional Champions, more than either Broken Arrow or the Dual State Champions from Choctaw. Unfortunately 220 pound junior and Regional Champion Delvin Jordan was unable to participate dropping the number to nine. 

106 freshman Riley Weir (20-12) came in third at Regionals and was pitted against Choctaw's Colt Newton (40-3) in the first round and was pinned in 0:41. From there he was majored 14-4 by Yukon's Braden Fowler and eliminated. 

113 Regional Champion Michael Ritchey (22-16) was defeated in round one by Westmoore's Wes Hardin (31-11) by a narrow 5-2 decision but managed to hold the lead in the next match for a 5-3 victory over Spencer Schickram (14-9) of Ponca City. 

120 Regional Champion Blake Sargent (36-10) went into overtime with Zackery Bibb (24-5) of Capitol Hill and lost 4-2 in the tie breaker round. He fell in an early hole to Justin Gundlach (29-11) of Moore and trailed 3-2 going into the final period, but rallied for a takedown and pin at 5:14 to stay alive in the consolation bracket. 

126 two-time undefeated State Champion Daton Fix (44-0) pinned Bobby Robinson (30-13) of Deer Creek in 1:37.

132 Regional Champion Jack Karstetter (38-7) breezed through his first match with a 17-2 tech fall over Norman's Jeffrey Adams (23-12) in 5:42.  

138 Regional Champion Beau Bratcher (40-6) pinned Choctaw's Jeff Speer (23-10) in 4:48. 

145 Regional Champion Payton Scott (18-4) pinned Westmoore's Trey Painter (32-10) in 3:52.  

160 Regional Runner-Up Zane Basma (32-11) scored an 8-3 decision over Sam Hensley (31-13) of Edmond Memorial.  

170 Trace Fleischman (10-4) placed fourth at Regionals but rebounded big time at State with a 3-1 upset of West Regional Champion Jacob Schimmels (23-6) of Edmond. 

The top three teams are as close now as they have been all season with Broken Arrow at 25.5, Choctaw at 25, and Sand Springs at 23.5.  

The semi finals will begin at 7:15.  

#1 Sandites unstoppable with 2 shutouts and 4th place finish at Yukon tourney

By: Scott Emigh, Editor-in-Chief

What a time to be a Sandite! Our football and softball teams were State Runners-Up, Cheyenne Walden won the cross country State Championship, and now we're midway through our Winter sports and there's no sign that this outstanding class of athletes has any intention of slowing down. 

Both of our basketball teams won games by more than 40 points this weekend and are ranked top 15, and our wrestlers have had the craziest week in years. Last week the wrestlers (9-0) dominated #1 Broken Arrow (4-2) 33-19 to earn the top spot in the state and followed it up Tuesday with a 57-15 slaughter of Bixby (0-4).

Thursday the wrestlers traveled to Enid for the triple-header District Duals. The Sandites pulled off the highest-scoring dual possible against the Putnam West Patriots (3-6), winning all matches by pin for an 84-0 shutout. U.S. Grant (11-4) only fared slightly better, losing by 80-0 shutout, and Enid (4-4) was put down 65-6 to secure the Sandites' spot at Dual State.

Not only did the boys have to wrestle three duals in a single day, but they didn't even get a day off to rest before traveling to Yukon for the annual Jay Hancock Memorial Invitational. 

The Sandites placed fourth in the tournament with nine placers and three champions. Allen, Texas, ranked 25th in the nation by Flowrestling, took first place, followed by Choctaw in second and Plainview third. Choctaw is currently ranked 2nd in Tournaments and 3rd in Duals.  Plainsview is ranked #1 in both 3A categories.

The Sandites have two duals left this season. Tuesday night the boys will take on the #1 5A Collinsville Cardinals, and Thursday they'll battle the #15 Jenks Trojans. 

The Sandites are still missing 106 starting freshman #7 Riley Weir (15-8), who's nursing a hand injury, but they have plenty of capable fill-ins at the lower weights.

Beau Bratcher places first at Bobby Lyons Invitational

By: Scott Emigh, Editor-in-Chief

Despite sitting out several key starters, the Charles Page High School wrestling squad was still more than capable of finishing third at their home tournament behind the #1 teams in 6A and 5A. After upsetting the #1 Broken Arrow Tigers Thursday night, the most important thing for the Sandites to do now is remain healthy for Regionals, State, and Dual State. #8 Riley Weir, John Jiminez, #2 Trace Fleischman, #7 Lane Lettich, and Delvin Jordan all set out the tournament to rest and recover, and several backups got to see their first varsity action of the season. 

(Part Four of Five...)

#2 Beau Bratcher (26-4) was the victor of 138, pinning Cascia Hall's Miles Waller in 2:37 and Ponca City's Nenebah Biggoose in 1:05. Broken Arrow's Blake Mattioda gave Bratcher the closest run for his money, only giving up a 4-1 decision, but Bratcher prevailed against both him and #4 Brody Perciful (Ponca City) in the finals with a 5-0 decision for his first championship of the season.

Gavin Garcia (0-2) made his varsity debut wrestling unattached at 145, but had to take on #8 Gabe Evans, a state qualifier from Union in the first round and was teched 16-1 in 4:58. The next battle was much closer, but Jimi Cerre of Ponca got the 5-0 decision for the win.

145 #10 Cody Mathis (8-7) had one of the highest-scoring matches of the night, running up a 17-14 decision over Barnsdall's Colten Allen, then pinned Cerre in 4:53. In the next round, however, he was defeated 5-0 by 5A State Runner-Up Justin Walker of Collinsville and bumped to the consolation bracket. Saturday morning Mathis had to take on Evans and was overcame 9-2, but he rebounded with a narrow 3-2 victory over Jacob Waits (Sperry) for a 5th Place finish. 

At 152 #2 Payton Scott (11-3) defeated Wesley Yarber (Barnsdall) 9-3 and pinned James Ott of Grapevine, TX in 1:31. Union's #5 Christian Mayhue battled valiantly before falling 5-3 to land Scott a spot in the finals against Elijah Tanner of Collinsville. Unfortunately, Scott aggravated an injury and forfeited his last match to settle for second place. Earlier this season Scott defeated Tanner 7-6 and Tanner defeated Scott 3-1 at Geary.

Daton Fix: Never Been Pinned

By: Scott Emigh, Editor-in-Chief

There's 10 days left till the Charles Page varsity wrestling team kicks off the season with a big win over Owasso. This season Sand Springs took runner-up in the Fast Pitch softball State Championship, and is soon to beat the snot out of Bixby for a State Championship in football. Once the hubbub surrounding the gridiron quiets down, it'll be all eyes on the mat as Sand Springs returns one of the greatest squads in school history. Our Minutemen are currently ranked #25 in the nation by flowrestling. 

For the next 10 days, we'll be counting down to the first dual and taking a look at our crowded roster of major talent. 

Daton Fix

  • Junior
  • 132 pounds

Daton Fix is not only the greatest wrestler in Sand Springs, Oklahoma, and the United States of America; he's also one of the best in the world. That's not my Sandite bias showing, he's got a bronze medal from Worlds and an Olympic silver medal to prove it. 

As a freshman, Fix went a perfect 33-0 and claimed his first OSSAA state title with a 8-2 decision over Garrett Rowe of Choctaw. 8-2 is about as near to a close-call as it gets for Fix. 

He continued that streak last season, taking first place in all six tournaments to finish 40-0 and claim a second OSSAA 6A State Championship, this time with an 11-3 major decision over Westmoore's Dalton Duffield at 120 lbs. 

Fix comes from a big family of outstanding wrestlers. His grand-father, Alan Karstetter Sr. coached at Charles Page for 24 years and is a 2002-inductee to the National Wrestling Hall of Fame. Derek Fix, Daton's father, racked up a winning 33-21 record at Oklahoma State and was a head wrestling coach then a collegiate referee for years before coming to Charles Page as an assistant wrestling coach. 

Fix's cousins, Jack and Cody Karstetter, are both Oklahoma State-placers. Jack is also a CPHS junior, and Cody is now a freshman at North Carolina where he has a 6-3 record this season and just placed runner-up in his second collegiate tournament. 

In a family like that, some might have a hard time living up to the hype. Fix, however, doesn't worry about anything but who's up next. 

The true gauge of Fix's potential lies outside the confines of Oklahoma high school kids. 

Before he ever even set foot on the high school mat, Fix was already a 7-time national champion. From 2011-2013, he went 174-5 and only ever lost to nationally ranked opponents. 

At the 2011 USAW Schoolboy Freestyle Duals, Fix was a leading member of Team Oklahoma when he was beaten 3-1 by Wisconsin's Hunter Marko. He quickly rebounded, however, beating Marko 6-3 and 6-0 in the next two matches. In that same tournament he was beaten 4-1 by Eric Hong of Pennsylvania, who he in turn defeated 4-2 and 3-0. 

In 2012, Fix would suffer only one loss, a narrow 2-1 decision to Chad Red at the 2012 ASICS Folkstyle Nationals. Fix went on to take 2nd in the tournament. Three years later, Red is currently ranked #1 in the nation at 132 lbs.

In 2013, Fix had his first meeting with Pennsylvania's Spencer Lee, and suffered his only tech fall to-date. Lee is currently ranked #1 in the nation at 120. Later that year Fix would once again meet up with Eric Hong, and this time it was clear who the better wrestler was, as Fix deal him a 16-5 tech fall at the USAW Cadet Folkstyle Nationals. Fix claimed his first continental titles that year, taking gold in both freestyle and Greco at the Pan-American games in Colombia. 

In 2014, Fix claimed his eighth national championship with a 4-2 overtime win against Utah's Taylor LaMont at the USAW Cadet Folkstyle Nationals. From there he joined team USA at the Cadet Pan-American Championships in Brazil where he claimed continental titles in both Freestyle and Greco. He racked up two more national championships at ASICS and USAW before traveling to Slovakia for the World Championships where he took 10th. At ASICS, he narrowly overcame Nick Suriano, the current #1 wrestler at 126 lbs, from New Jersey, in a 1-1 decision that Fix was awarded due to scoring the last point. 

At the 2014 Youth Olympic games in Nanjing, China, Fix defeated Macedonian Elmedin Sejfulau and Yemenite Ebrahim Abdullah Ali Al-Shebami by tech fall, and South Africa's Reynhardt Louw 6-1 before falling in the final match to Mukhambet Kuatbek of Kazakhstan in a narrow 7-6 decision. Fix had to settle for silver, but he was that much closer to his long-term goal of becoming an Olympic gold-medalist. 

Upon his return to the United States, Fix challenged Nick Suriano to a rematch at the Who's #1 event at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania. Once again, the two were tied 1-1 as the third period expired. Unlike FILA, the Who's #1 event has no limit to overtime, setting up Fix and Suriano for an epic battle that lasted 32:12 into overtime and set the record for longest match ever recorded. It was Suriano that came out on top however, with a 3-1 sudden victory takedown. 

2015 has been just as big of a year for the young stud. He claimed his 11th national title at the Flonationals Junior Folkstyle tournament in April where he once against narrowly overcame Taylor LaMont in the semi-finals. His final opponent was Yianni Diakomihalis, who is currently #3 at 132lbs. Diakomihalis overcame Fix 5-0 last year at the Super 32 tournament in Greensboro, NC, but this time Fix got the edge with a 3-1 OT decision.

He won a 12th national title at the ASICS/UWW Junior Freestyle Nationals with a 10-0 tech fall over Chicago's Stevan Micic. Then, at the Cadet Freestyle Nationals he went best-of-three against Spencer Lee.  This time the #1 wrestler in the country  was upset and Fix brought home a 13th national title with a 9-6 decision over the Pennsylvanian. 

Fix, in turn, would be upset in his next matches at the Junior World Team Trials. In another best-of-three performance, this time Stevan Micic brought payback with 7-4 and 10-4 decisions bringing Fix's 69-straight win-streak to an end.

The losses were only a slight hiccup in otherwise incredible year.

After being upset by Micic, Fix recorded 12-straight tech falls. Six of them came at the Junior National Duals as Fix teamed up with recent CPHS graduates Cody Karstetter and Kyler Childers on Team Oklahoma to take a dual national title. The next six were at the USAW Junior Freestyle National Championships as he outscored opponents 66-5 to claim a fifteenth national title.

From there it was once again time to tread international waters. 

At the Cadet World Championships in Sarajevo, Bosnia, Fix went 4-1 for a third place finish and his first World Championship bronze medal. He defeated Armenian Vazgen Tevanyan by 7-1 decision, then tech fell Georgia's Vano Godelashvili 12-0 in 2:47. In the quarterfinals he was narrowly defeated 3-2 by Russia's Abasgadzhi Magomedov, but he rebounded with a 10-0 tech fall against Moldova's Nicolai Grahmez in an incredible 1:46. In the third place match he had no difficulty overcoming Abbos Rakhmonov of Uzbekistan 17-2 in 3:34 to wrap up another incredible international performance. 

Returning to America for the prestigious Super 32, Fix settled for 4th place after being defeated by Luke Karam and Vito Arujau, bringing his 2015 non-scholastic record to 68-5. 

Needless to say, Fix is a sure-win for the 2016 State Championship, and will likely go undefeated this season as-well. He's the kind of guy who shoots for the stars and grabs the moon in the process. While most of the competitors in this state are aiming for state championships, his heart is set on the Olympics, and the rest of Sand Springs is there with him. Earlier this summer, a GoFundMe campaign raised more than $5000 to help send him across the world and local company Inkwell Printing sold Daton Fix t-shirts to help raise funds for him.

Sandite Highlight: Jack Karstetter

Sand Springs is no stranger to the national forum when it comes to wrestling. The sport is undeniably the Sandites' best subject in recent memory, and not only are we considered to be part of the "Top Three" in Oklahoma, but our wrestlers are making headlines nation-wide as part of Team Oklahoma. With the scholastic season on hold, many of our wrestlers are competing in Freestyle and Greco-Roman tournaments across the country as part of "Team BIG," a wrestling club started by Sandite assistant coach Derek Fix. Here's what our boys have been up to since placing third in state last school year.

Jack Karstetter

Jack Karstetter took no time off whatsoever when scholastic wrestling came to a close, quickly adding to his resume and gaining some serious experience. Ending his school season as a state qualifier and regional champion at 113, Jack already had quite a bit of steam behind him as he headed into the summer.

At the OK USA National Team Qualifier, Jack wrestled heavy at 132 in Cadet Freestyle, landing four straight techs and five straight wins to take 1st place over 20 other wrestlers. He defeated 3A state qualifier Dalton Harvey 16-4, Carson Berryhill of Tiger Wrestling 11-0, Ponca  City's Jacob Swenson 12-2, Jake Smith of Threestyle Wrestling 11-0, then wrapped things up with a narrow 9-7 decision over Lawton's Hunter Jump to seal the title.

A week later, Jack competed at the Sand Springs Freestyle/Greco Tournament in the Cadet Freestyle 132 division. He kicked the tournament off with a 12-2 tech fall against Threestyle Wrestling's Ky Allen, followed by a 13-2 tech on Ponca City Wildcat Noah Burdick, and finished the tournament with an 18-8 tech over Hunter Perigo of Threestyle Wrestling, taking 1st place of 6 competitors.

In mid-May Jack traveled to Cushing for the OK USA FS/GR State Tournament and competed in the Cadet Freestyle division at 132lbs. Once again Jack defeated Carson Berryhill by an 11-0 tech fall, then took on Owasso's Seth Osborne, whom he pinned in 2:01. Wildcat Dylan Schickram also proved to be no match, losing in a 13-3 tech, then Jack put the icing on the cake with an 11-0 tech fall over Guthrie's 5A state qualifier, Kurgan Cornwell, and took 1st place of 13 wrestlers.

The end of the month heralded the 2015 Southern Plains Regional Freestyle and Greco tournaments, where Jack competed at 126lbs. In Greco, Jack defeated Minnesota's Alex Kern by 15-4 tech fall, then teched two-time Missouri state qualifier Colin Valdiviez 14-2. Colorado state champion Wyatt Pfau also proved no match for Jack, getting teched 10-0. Finally, Jack defeated Texan David Reyes in a 6-2 decision to secure the 1st place medal over 13 other wrestlers. 

Moving to the Freestyle competition, Jack started things off with a pin against two-time Missouri state placer Nikolas Chavez in 3:59, then teched fellow Okie Broc Bailey 10-0, and Colorado's Jerzie Estrada 10-0 as well. Once again the final matchup was against David Reyes, and once again Jack came out on top, this time in a 9-3 decision, securing Jack's fifth consecutive 1st place medal, this time over 16 other wrestlers. 

As mid-June arrived, Jack returned to the big leagues, representing Team Oklahoma for the third time, moving up from Schoolboy Nationals to Cadet Nationals. In the Greco Duals, Oklahoma started out in the C Pool. Match #1 saw a 60-15 victory over California, despite Jack starting with a 14-4 tech fall to Ruben Gonzalez. It would, however, be Jack's only defeat of the tournament. Oklahoma suffered a narrow 37-36 defeat to Ohio1 in the semifinals, with Jack teching Austin Murphy 10-0. Jack sat out in Oklahoma's round three 68-14 slaughter of Delaware, but aided in their 44-29 victory over Indiana for 3rd place with a 34 second pin over state-qualifier Jonathan Moran. In the 2nd place match against Kansas1, Oklahoma was defeated 46-30, as Jack again sat out at 126, sharing the mat with Lawton's Hunter Jump.
Moving to the Bronze/Copper Pool, Oklahoma handily defeated Michigan1 54-21 with a 10-0 tech fall by Jack over Michigan state champion and 2014 Flo National Runner-Up Cameron Amine. Hunter Jump stepped in for a round 2 defeat of Ohio2 44-32, then Jack returned to hand an 11-0 tech fall to New Jersey's Ray Wetzel as Oklahoma narrowly defeated them 39-36. Oklahoma once again confronted Indiana, but this time the Hoosiers had the upper hand and won the first place spot 39-37, despite Jack's 10-0 tech fall against Jonathan Moran. Oklahoma settled for 2nd in Bronze/Copper, 10th overall.

Oklahoma fared slightly better in the Freestyle competition, with Jack once again losing only one match. OK slaughtered Delaware 70-7 as Jack kicked things off with a 10-0 tech over state-placer Niko Chilson. Ohio1 defeated Oklahoma 51-21 in the semifinal, with Jack narrowly defeating Drew Fairbanks 17-12. Hunter Jump came in for a round to help Oklahoma defeat Kansas2 48-27, then Jack returned for the 3rd place match to register his fastest pin of the tournament in 22 seconds against Jared Clark as Oklahoma narrowly defeated Indiana 41-38. OK advanced to the 2nd place match where they came out on top of a 39-37 contest against Missouri1, and Jack gave a 10-0 tech to state and national placer Taylor Brown to finish things off in the C Pool.
This time Oklahoma advanced to the Gold/Silver pool, where they only managed to win one match. Jack accepted a forfeit in a round one 40-36 defeat by New Jersey1, then let Hunter Jump wrestle in round two's 67-9 slaughter by Illinois. In round three, Jack suffered his first loss of  the tournament in a 15-4 tech by 2014 ASICS National Champion Mason Phillips, as Oklahoma  was defeated 46-33 by Washington. Finally, Oklahoma managed a 45-29 win over Kansas1 in the 7th place match, and Jack finished things off with a 10-0 tech against Joey Hancock.

Jack took a month long break after his travels with team Oklahoma, and then entered in the 2015 USAW Cadet Nationals a little over a week ago. Competing at 120 in Greco, Jack started off with a pin in 1:35 over Pennsylvania's Mark Sallot, then suffered his first loss in an 18-12 decision to Kansas State Runner-Up Conner Ward. Moving to the consolation bracket, Jack registered five straight wins, teching Colorado state-placer Kyle Cisneros 15-4, pinning Minnesota's Jackson Stauffacher in 2:26, and teching Florida state-placer Luis Hernandez 10-0. His next matches were closer, scoring a 9-3 decision over Mel Ortiz of Connecticut, then narrowly beating Missouri state-placer Cameron Valdiviez 20-19, whom he's previously beaten 3 times and has lost 4 matches to, thus tying their series. His streak finally came to an end with a 12-2 tech loss to Alex Thomsen, Iowa State Champion and National Runner-Up. Jack was eliminated from contention in the next round with a 6-4 loss to Pennsylvania's Jack Davis and claimed 8th place out of 83 contenders.

The Cadet Freestyle Nationals began soon after and Jack moved up to 126lbs. He teched New Yorker Richard Gomez 14-3 in round one, then lost 14-7 in round two to 2012 ASICS Folkstyle National Runner-Up Markus Hartman of Illinois. In the consolation bracket, Jack scored a narrow 9-7 decision over Illinois' Kenneth Kerstein, then teched two-time Arizona State-Qualifier Stone Crooks, before finally being eliminated by Illinois State-Qualifier Abdullah Assaf in a 14-2 tech. While he failed to place, he advanced five rounds in a crowded bracket of 103 of the nation's best wrestlers, which is, in itself, something to be proud of.  

So far, Jack has a non-scholastic record of 39-7 for 2015. He's claimed the titles of Sand Springs Freestyle Champion, and Southern Plains Freestyle and Greco Champion, as well as won two other tournaments and competed in National Championships both individually and as part of Team Oklahoma. He's registered 6 pins and 26 tech falls, and will be a Junior at Charles Page this upcoming school year. 

Sandite Highlight: Payton Scott

Sand Springs is no stranger to the national forum when it comes to wrestling. The sport is undeniably the Sandites' best subject in recent memory, and not only are we considered to be part of the "Top Three" in Oklahoma, but our wrestlers are making headlines nation-wide as part of Team Oklahoma. With the scholastic season on hold, many of our wrestlers are competing in Freestyle and Greco-Roman tournaments across the country as part of "Team BIG," a wrestling club started by Sandite assistant coach Derek Fix. Here's what our boys have been up to since placing third in state last school year.

Payton Scott

Payton kicked off his nonscholastic season in mid-April at the 2015 OK USA National Team Qualifier at Union High School. He made quick work of his opponents, pinning Stillwater's Jace Nicholas in 1:35, then had back to back techs on Broken Arrow's Jarred Due and Lawton's 2015 Southern Plains Champion, Nick Mahan. With only 9 competitors at weight class 160, this secured Payton's position on the Oklahoma Cadet Team.

A month later, Payton traveled to Cushing for the OK USA FS/GR State Tournament, where he again competed in the Cadet FS 160 field against a small group of only 6 other wrestlers. He easily teched Broken Arrow's Zeke Rozell, then pulled a narrow 9-5 decision over 2015 state placer Jaryn Curry of Choctaw, before teching Lawton MacArthur's Christian Maldonado for a first place medal.

In June it was finally time for the Cadet National Duals, where Payton would compete on both the Freestyle and Greco-Roman teams. In Greco, Oklahoma started in the C Pool and went 3-2 against their opponents. Payton proved to be an invaluable member of the team, losing only one match in the whole tournament while wrestling at 152lbs. First Oklahoma defeated California 60-15, aided by Payton's 12-0 Tech of Michael Zaragoza. Then, despite a fantastic 13-0 tech of Joey Baughman, Oklahoma fell 37-36 to Ohio1. In the consolation semifinal Oklahoma made easy work of Delaware, defeating them 68-14, where Payton landed his quickest pin of the tournament in 26 seconds against Jullian Johnson. In the 3rd Place Match, Payton teched state-qualifier Gleason Mappes 10-0 to help aid Oklahoma in a 44-29 rout of Indiana.

Sandite Highlight: Michael Ritchey

Sand Springs is no stranger to the national forum when it comes to wrestling. The sport is undeniably the Sandites' best subject in recent memory, and not only are we considered to be part of the "Top Three" in Oklahoma, but our wrestlers are making headlines nation-wide as part of Team Oklahoma. With the scholastic season on hold, many of our wrestlers are competing in Freestyle and Greco-Roman tournaments across the country as part of "Team BIG," a wrestling club started by Sandite assistant coach Derek Fix. Here's what our boys have been up to since placing third in state last school year.

Michael Ritchey

Ritchey took 2nd place of 3 in Junior Freestyle division 126 at the Sand Springs Freestyle/Greco Tournament back in April, beating Cody Wynn of Wildcat Wrestling by a 10-0 Tech fall, before losing to fellow teammate and state placer Cody Randall in an 11-0 tech fall.

A week later he placed 3rd of 5 in Junior Freestyle division 126 at the Owasso Freestyle and Greco Tournament. He lost to state-placer Mason Naifeh of Team NEO in a 10-0 Tech, then pinned Jeremy Hanger of McAlester Wrestling in 4:10, and handed a 12-2 tech to Hunter Smith of Owasso Threestyle,

At the USAOK Broken Arrow Freestyle/Greco Regional he placed 2nd of 4 in Junior FS 120, defeating Cordney Chairs of Team NEO in a narrow 9-8 decision, before losing again to Mason Naifeh, this time by only 19-18.

At the OK USA FS/GR State Tournament at Cushing, he took 4th place of 7 in Junior Freestyle 120. First he defeated state-placer Paxten Rosen of Owasso in a 14-11 decision before falling to 4A state-runner-up Noah McQuigg from Tiger Wrestling Club in a 12-2 tech fall. Rebounding with a 13-2 tech over Javier Willets of Chickasha, he again had to confront Paxton Rosen, this time getting teched 10-0 and finishing with a 2-2 record.

At the 2015 USAW Junior Men's Freestyle Nationals, Ritchey competed in the 120 weight class, but failed to place. He lost his first match in a 10-0 tech fall to two-time state-placer Aslan Kilic of Georgia. He defeated Jordan Baker of Hawaii 10-0 and accepted a forfeit-due-to-injury from Iowan Jack Wagner, but was eliminated from contention by Georgia State-Champion Todd Small in a 12-5 decision.

For 2015, Ritchey has a non-scholastic record of 17-10.

Not mentioned in this article are his 2nd place of 28 run at the USJOC/US JR Open Championships in January, and his 3rd place of 19 title at the OKWA 37th State Championships in February.
