#10 Oklahoma State – 9th (33.0 Points)

Link to Brackets

The Cowboys had a rough early session day II with Jordan Williams, Teague Travis, and Konner Doucet all going 2-2 to end the tournament. Spratley and Olejnik both dropped their quarterfinal matches, while Fix won a razor close one to make the podium for the 5th time. Plott was the highlight as he dominated his way to the semis and put the Cowboys in a position to score more placement points in tonight’s session. 

125lbs: #6 Troy Spratley

  • Champ. Round 1: #6 Troy Spratley Dec. #27 Max Gallagher (6-0)
  • Champ. Round 2: #6 Troy Spratley Dec. #11 Cooper Flynn (VT) (8-1)
  • Quarterfinals: #3 Drake Ayala (IOWA) Dec. #6 Troy Spratley (SV 4-1)

Next Match: Bloodround – #23 Tanner Jordan (South Dakota State)

A rematch in quarterfinals looked similar to the dual result as Spratley was unable to get a takedown in regular or over time. He and Ayala had some exciting flurries, with Spratley close to scoring off a neutral danger takedown. In overtime Ayala got to a single leg on the edge and was again able to finish for a takedown. The call may have been a bit early but even after a challenge brick from OSU the takedown was upheld. 

Now into the bloodround Spratley will see Tanner Jordan in a rubber match this season. Jordan won 9-8 at CKLV while Spratley won 7-3. Jordan had a solid run after dropping his first match highlighted by an 11-4 decision over #9 Patrick McKee and a 3-0 win over #17 Brett Ungar. A win puts Spratley onto the podium where he would see the winner of #20 Stevo Poulin and #15 Caleb Smith. 

133lbs: #1 Daton Fix

  • Champ. Round 1: #1 Daton Fix Tech #33 Dyson Dunham (VMI) (17-1 7:00)
  • Champ. Round 2: #1 Daton Fix Dec. #16 Nic Bouzakis (OHST) (5-4)
  • Quarterfinals: #1 Daton Fix Dec. #8 Evan Frost (ISU) (2-1)

Next Match: Semifinals – #5 Dylan Ragusin (Michigan)

Fix made the podium to become OSU’s first five-time All-American, but it wasn’t pretty. He saw a familiar opponent in redshirt freshman Evan Frost, who narrowed the gap in every match after being majored in the dual. They both had some exciting scrambles in regular time, with Frost actually forcing a stall call on Fix from bottom. Frost was pushing throughout as Fix circled the edge, but his veteran savviness kept him from another stall call. In overtime, Fix came close in sudden victory but was unable to score. Rideouts got crazy as well, as Fix got out in just three seconds which forced Frost to choose neutral for a chance. Frost was pushing and in deep, but a stalemate call with short time gave Fix just what he needed to advance. 

He’ll see Dylan Ragusin, Big 10 runner-up this season who just avenged his finals loss. So far he has won three consecutive decisions, but a cumulative 29 points in each one. Fix is the favorite but with how
