Another incredibly busy weekend of wrestling saw teams competing in at least six in-state tournaments and four out of state tournaments. There were, of course, numerous outstanding performances, but special recognition goes to Choctaw’s Peyton Hand for winning the Reno Tournament of Champions and the six individual champions at the Kansas City Stampede (Edmond North’s Bella Williams and Taylor Ellis Hishaw, Chris Kiser – Ponca City, William Heger – El Reno, KJ Evans – Heritage Hall and Ethan Teague – Tuttle. Hand, a 3X state champion, somehow went into the tournament unseeded but went 5-0 with 5 falls including a 1st round fall over the number 3 seed and then won the title with a 50 second fall in the finals over the number one seed.
