Duncan wrestling begins home part of 2012-13 schedule

DUNCAN — For fans who have been waiting to see Duncan in action, the wait is over.

Tonight will see the 2012 home debut of the DHS wrestling team, as it will take on Stephens County rival Comanche, with matches beginning at 6 p.m. from Duncan Gymnasium.

“It’s nice for the kids, especially since they look forward to this dual,” Duncan coach Kevin Kelly said. “There’s no basketball game either, so a lot of the students will be there. It should make for a fun atmosphere for everyone.”

Both of these teams have been through duals and tournament action this year, with the Demons participating in Tennessee, while the Indians competed at Deer Creek this past weekend.

Comanche will look for victories at 132 pounds, with two-time defending state champion JonWayne Townsend leading the way.

Another Indians wrestler to watch out for will be Wyatt Schoolfield, who went 29-1 last season as a freshman while attending high school in Colorado. He’ll be wrestling at 145 pounds.

Duncan will bring its own stable of stars as MarkWae Sanders will be showcased at 113 pounds, along with Jett Gray at 126 pounds and Christian Carnahan at 152 pounds.

Cameron McGill will look for a win for the Demons at 220 pounds.

“Coach Jason (Miller) is going to have his kids ready,” Kelly said. “They’re going to give us everything they got and wrestle to win the match. It should be a dog fight out there. The kids all know one another and have been talking all week about who they might be wrestling.”

In addition, starting on Friday the annual Southern Oklahoma Invitational tournament will begin at Duncan Gymnasium, with teams from Oklahoma and Texas being represented.

“It’ll be most of the same teams from last year coming back,” Kelly said. “Putnam City will be coming and they have some solid wrestlers. Noble and Guthrie will be back as well. It should be a competitive tournament. I want all of our wrestlers competing hard, because there’s no better experience then mat shape.”

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
