Wrestling

Tyler Lavey wrestles Hunter Jump in their junior season at the Southern Oklahoma Invitational Tournament in Duncan. Both Lavey and Jump were selected as All-State honorees and will wrestle in late July representing their schools.

Seven Stephens County athletes will be heading to the Tulsa area to represent their school one more time as All-State recipients and compete in the annual All-State week in three different sports.

Oklahoma Coaches Association in their week long annual summer conference will also host the All-State games and tournaments for golf, swimming, tennis, volleyball, wrestling, basketball and football.

Duncan has three of the seven athletes while Comanche and Marlow got the other four athletes with a split of two apiece to represent their school at All-State competitions.

The first of the events take place Monday when Duncan’s Brooklyn Bostick and Mora Bivens will compete in golf and swimming to start of the weekly schedule.

Bostick, who finished fifth overall in the 2019 Class 5A State Tournament and will play collegiate golf at Troy University, was one of three Class 5A girls golf players to be selected.

Shooting a 156 at the State Tournament, Bostick along with all of the other golfers selected for All-State will play at Cherokee Hills Golf Club beginning at 8:30 a.m. July 22.

Bivens, who had some top finishes for the Lady Demons swim team in 2019 in her senior season, will be representing Duncan in the All-State Swim meet happening Monday evening.

The meet will take place at 6:30 p.m. Monday July 22 at the Phillips 66 Aquatic Center.

The rest of the athletes will be competing in the Wrestling All-State teams.

Hunter Jump will be the last to represent Duncan Athletes as he joins Comanche’s Jaxon Miller and Ethon Hamrick along with Marlow’s Kobe Kizarr and Tyler Lavey.

All-State Wrestling will take place at 7 p.m. Wednesday July 24 at Sand Springs High School with all of the wrestlers competing at the same time in the tournament.

Baseball already had their All-State games, playing in early June, while soccer also played earlier this summer. Both sports have their own coaches association meetings.
