Session II Recap: Oklahoma

Oklahoma – 28th Place (6.5 Points)

Link to Brackets

Oklahoma still has Stephen Buchanan into the quarterfinals tomorrow while Willie McDougald and Josh Heindselman are battling in the consolations. 

133lbs: #29 Jace Koelzer – DNP

  • Champ. Round 1: #4 Dylan Shawver (RUT) Maj. #29 Jace Koelzer (10-0)
  • Cons. Round 1: #20 Tyler Wells (MINN) Dec. #29 Jace Koelzer (7-3)

Koelzer exceeded expectations late in the year by placing at Big 12’s and qualifying for NCAA’s but wasn’t able to find a win here. He finishes his career as a two-time NCAA qualifier between Northern Colorado and Oklahoma. 

149lbs: #21 Willie McDougald

  • Champ. Round 1: #21 Willie McDougald Dec. #12 Ethen Miller (MARY) (5-4)
  • Champ. Round 2: #5 Ty Watters (WVU) Maj. #21 Willie McDougald (9-0)

Next Match: Consi. Round 2 – #11 Quinn Kinner (Rider)

McDougald had a rematch with Watters but this match did not go his way. Watters length and scrambling gave him issues throughout as he scored a takedown, reversal, and nearfall. McDougald went neutral in the third and was attacking but unable to finish. Tomorrow he’ll take on Rider’s Kinner, who was majored by Gabe Willochell of Wyoming in the first round before a tech over #27 Jack Crook of Harvard. If McDougald wins there he’ll see the winner of #19 Joe Zargo (Wisconsin) and #20 Jordan Williams (OKST), both wrestlers he’s faced…
