Wrestling: Dual State wrap and looking ahead to regionals
Tuttle and Perry took home Dual State championships in Class 3A and 4A Saturday in Cushing. Neither win is remotely surprising and the final scores of both championships back that up.
But what now? Tuttle is hoping to qualify at least 9 wrestlers for state during regionals this weekend. The Tigers showed they’re wrestling as well as they have all season. Tuttle also got Cole Gracey back in the lineup after a wrist injury. He wrestled in two of Tuttle’s duals and had a pin in the finals.
Tuttle will have plenty of competition at their regional in Weatherford, but of the teams there, there’s no reason to believe Tuttle won’t add a regional title to go along with the hardware they won this week.
At Deer Creek the Antlers are dusting themselves off after getting blown out in the finals by Claremore. Like Tuttle and Perry, Claremore’s win is no surprise. Deer Creek will host the 5A west regional and despite what the final score says, should be in good position to qualify the number of wrestlers they’d like to get in. Besides facing Claremore, the Antlers survived a war with Harrah in the semifinals which should only help them in the long run. Too bad Harrah is going east for its regional, otherwise the 5A west which will feature Carl Albert and Altus would have more great match potential than it already does.
