Larry Wilkey Invitational

(Scroll down for championship match interviews)

The Jenks Tournament with 24 teams went off without a hitch and in this pandemic time that can be scary, but it wasn’t at this tournament. 

Larry Wilkey and the Jenks Tournament Staff followed protocol to a T.  They social distanced each team from each other, mask-wearing at all times unless wrestling, each morning at weigh in the wrestlers and staff’s temperatures were taken, not allowing fans were all for the wrestlers and their coaches safety.  

The tournament was unseeded so there were some crazy match ups early. Luckily they did have true 2nd which means anyone who wins the 3rd place match could challenge for 2nd place if they did not wrestle wrestle the person who took 2nd. 

At 106 we had (2) 6A ranked wrestler wrestle first round Yancy Kite (Moore) and Dariuz Black (Union).  Kite (Moore) ended up winning that match. 

At 126 Parker Witcraft (BA) had Jace Roller (Bixby) second round.  Jace went on to make it to the finals and place 2nd

At 138 Carter Young (Stillwater) had Hudson Neeley (Deer Creek) first round.  That sent Hudson the backside where he battled back and was able to wrestle for true 2nd and win that match again Layton Schneider (Edmond N). 

At 145 Cade Manion (Deer Creek) had Blazik Perez (BA) both 6A ranked wrestlers and unfortunately Blazik was hurt in that match and had to forfeit and didn’t return to the mat the rest of the tournament.

At 170 Chance Davis (Enid) had Payton Thomas both ranked at 6A. Then the very next round he had Jaxon Randall (Edmond N).  Chance Davis went on to win that bracket. 

At 182 Brayden Bowman (Edmond N) had Ramses Soto (BA) both 6A ranked wrestlers.  Brayden Bowman went on to win the bracket. 

At 195 Gabe Chesbro (Bishop Kelley) #1 in 5A went against Jersey Robb (Bixby) #2 in 6A first round.  Jersey Robb went on to win that bracket.

The coaches also voted for 2 Outstanding Wrestlers one for the lower weights and one for upper weights.  The lower weight OW went to Zeke Escalera (Moore) who wrestled Jace Roller (Bixby) in the finals. Zeke wrestled tough and looked like a true technician.  The upper OW went to Lane Parks (Yukon) who pinned David Steiger (Southmoore) in the finals match.
