Between sessions thoughts...
By Robert Przybylo
Well, we made it. Eight mats have been trimmed down to four and all that’s left for the state wrestling championships are the finals.
When I last left you, I was saying how Catoosa held a comfortable lead in 4A but that Tuttle could quickly turn things in its favor because of the wrestle-backs.
And sure enough, Matt Surber’s Tigers did just that. Catoosa didn’t earn one point this morning while Tuttle earned 28 and now holds a 117.5 – 108 advantage over Catoosa. Cushing is also in solid standing at third with 100 points.
And to reiterate, Catoosa has six finalists, Tuttle and Cushing each have five. Tuttle wrestles both Cushing and Catoosa in two finals. Might it come down to Catoosa’s Dallas Bailey needing to pull it out vs. Woodward’s Zach White. Or perhaps Tuttle’s Shane Woods might hold the key at 215.
Cushing is in a tough spot because after Josh Myers in 135, Cushing does not have another finalist. The two biggest bouts will be at 152 and 160.
