Stephen Culberson

Stephen Culberson battled at the Southern Oklahoma Invitational Tournament. He was one of the several Duncan wrestlers who got a pin in the 71-12 victory over Capitol Hill.

The Duncan Demons wrestling team again punched their ticket to Dual State.

Duncan, back in December, faced off against Eisenhower and won that dual 72-12. Capitol Hill, unable to make it after inclement weather that evening, later came to Lawton to finish the district duals officially.

In the dual against Capitol Hill, the Demons took home the 71-12 victory to officially punch the ticket to the Class 5A Dual State tournament as they have beaten every one of their district opponents.

The only district opponent they have yet to beat is Western Heights but they decided back in August that due to COVID-19, they wouldn’t compete in athletic contests so therefore will forfeit any of the matches.

Duncan wrestling coach Bobby Cook said all of his wrestlers won by fall except a technical fall in one of the victories. He said they still have some work to do to be ready for the final weeks of the season.

The Demons wrestling program will finish out the week at the Mustang Invitational Dual Tournament with the wrestling starting at 10 a.m. Jan. 9 at Mustang Activities Center.

Duncan will be in Pool A of the Mustang Invitational Dual Tournament and will appear on mat 2 in the first round as they take on Edmond Memorial to start the day. Then, they will face off against Piedmont in round two and then face host Mustang in the third round.

The top two finishers of each pool will head to the gold bracket and the bottom two finishers of the pool will head to the silver bracket to face off for the final awards of the day.

No fans will be allowed to attend the Mustang Invitational Dual Tournament and there will be a video feed of the tournament for the day.

It will cost $10 to watch the feed on and a streaming schedule will release once it is finalized Saturday morning.

After the Mustang Dual tournament, the Demons will return home for a dual against Altus Bulldogs with it starting at 6 p.m. Jan. 12 at the Hoover Family Wrestling Complex.
