The Comanche Indians wrestling program is peaking at the best time, and now the squad has brought home the Chickasha Invitational Title after beating Duncan in the team standings this past weekend.
Scoring 206 points compared to Duncan’s 190.5 secured the tournament title for the Comanche Indians, who in turn were selected as the DSPAC Team of the Week with the victory over 28 teams.
Overall, the Indians had three individual champions and 10 overall wrestlers who finished sixth or better. Two of the champions came from the boys’ side and one came from the girls’ bracket.
Of the 10 placers, five of them appeared in the title matches.
Comanche had Erik Roy as their first person going for a title in his division. Roy appeared in the 144 division for the Indians. He had two fall victories and two decision victories to get into the championship match against MacArthur’s Calvin Moon.
The two battled late into the second period, during which Moon got the pin on Roy to give the Indians the first runner-up of the tournament.
Noah Presgrove was the next wrestler for the Indians to compete for a title in the 157 division. He went 4-1 in the tournament.
Three of his four victories came by pin. Presgrove won two of those matches in the first period and his final pin came in the third period of his quarterfinal match.
Presgrove’s semi-final match was a decision victory. He scored the 4-2 decision over Carl Albert to put him in the title match against Davis Park of Heritage Hall.
Park and Presgrove battled all three periods, which saw Heritage Hall’s Park get the 6-2 decision victory to send Presgrove to a runner-up finish in the 157 divison.
The final two boy wrestlers in the championship matches were Kooper Doucet and Cade White, who both went a perfect 5-0 in their division to secure their titles.
Doucet, wrestling in the 215 division, got three fall victories to put himself in the semi-finals where he had to go to extra time to decide the winner of the match.
Scoring a take down in overtime, Doucet moved to the first place match, during which he faced off against Brogan Hardy of Piedmont and the two battled for all three periods.
Winning with a 7-5 decision, Doucet took home the 215 title, which brought way to White, who was in the heavyweight division for the Indians.
White managed to get a pin in the first period for his first three matches with an 8-2 decision in the semi-final putting the senior against Duncan’s Devon Lolar in the title match.
Lolar and White battled for all three periods, but Comanche’s senior took the 3-0 decision victory to put Comanche with two individual champions on the boys’ side.
Having two girl wrestlers compete in the tournament, Brook West, a state placer, had three matches and went a perfect 3-0.
West won her quarterfinal with a fall in the second period to get to the semi-finals of the 190-235 girls’ division where she faced El Reno’s Bentley Sharp.
West got the pin over Sharp 20 seconds into the third and final period to put her in the title match against Putnam City’s Ashley Maldonado.
The two battled for three periods. West scored the 9-3 decision victory to secure the third individual champion of the tournament.
Weather has forced several postponements on the Indians’ wrestling schedule. Their next scheduled tournament will come at the Class 3A Regional that will take place on Feb. 17-18.
