Congratulations to the following wrestlers who recently signed to wrestle in college!

  • Rachel Burns (Perkins-Tryon) signed with Central Christian College in McPherson, KS
  • Severn Torres and Carson Spencer (Broken Arrow) signed with Ottawa University and will be joining Broken Arrow alum Braden Anderson and Dayton Hill on the team.
  • Karsten Holmes (Blanchard) signed to wrestle for Ouachita Baptist University.  

A week late, but congratulations to Tuttle’s Braden Potts on picking up his 100th career win!  Potts entered the season with 99 wins, but didn’t get to see the mat until winning the Tuttle Tournament last weekend.  

Congratulations to Bixby junior Gage Walker on picking up his 100th career win at the Ram Duals!  

There were several outstanding performances this past week, but one that bears mentioning again is Westmoore sophomore Devon Miller winning the 120 lb. title at the Yukon Tournament.  The weight included 2X state champion Cannon Acklin (Collinsville), 2X finalist and 2021 state champion Sam Smith (Stillwater) and 2022 state champions Cash Donnell (Piedmont) Gerald Harris (Cascia Hall) and Stockton Allen (Stillwater).  It was Miller, a 3rd place state medalist as a freshman last year who worked his way through that incredible bracket to claim the gold medal and fittingly, the OW Award.   Miller beat Smith (for the 2nd time this year) with a 3-2 UTB thriller in the semifinals and then did it again with a thrilling 3-2 UTB win in the finals over Acklin.  Smith took 3rd, with Harris 4th and Donnell 5th in this power-packed weight. 

Teams that have earned a trip to Dual State are listed below.  Dual State will take place February 10-11 at the Stride Bank Center in Enid.
