LaDarion Lockett Wins Super 32 as Six Oklahomans Place in the High School Tournament

A small group of Oklahomans made the trip to Greensboro, North Carolina to compete at one of the top high school tournaments in the country, the Super 32. Of the group, a total of six wrestlers placed, led by Stillwater’s LaDarion Lockett, the tournament champion at 157 pounds.

Lockett was tested early in the round of 32 by California’s Dylan Pile. After no scoring in the first period, he was able to get a reverse and rideout to take a 2-0 lead into the third. He rode that period out as well to win 2-0 in his closest match of the tournament. He followed that up with two majors and two decisions to walk away with his second Super 32 title.

On the boys’ side, JJ McComas and Kody Routledge were the other two tournament finalists from Oklahoma. McComas found himself in a rematch of his Fargo finals with Jax Forrest. McComas lost in another close one with Forrest 5-3 to finish second at 126.

Routledge dominated his way to the quarterfinals at 150 before hitting a few tighter matches to make the finals. In the finals, he wrestled Kollin Rath from Pennsylvania. Routledge fell 4-2 to Rath to finish second.

Edmond North had two placers with Routledge and Oscar Williams. Williams dropped his semifinal bout to #1 seed Michael Mocco, the son of former Oklahoma State star Steve Mocco, 6-3. He came back with two decisions on the consolation side to finish third.

Tuttle’s Beau Hickman also placed finishing seventh at 144.

On the girls’ side, Bella Williams finished second as the lone placer from the state of Oklahoma. Williams came in as the #3 seed but upset the #2 seed in the semifinals on criteria to make the finals. In the finals, she fell to Illinois’ Cadence Diduch.
