Mid-Del POWs: Carl Albert wrestlers
With four Carl Albert wrestlers winning Class 5A regional titles last week it’s hard to narrow this weeks’ Mid-Del Player of the Week down.
So this week it’s a split title with junior Jacob Lusch, sophomore Brandon Hughes, junior Eric Waggoner and senior Jared Porter sharing the honors.
Lusch, at 112 pounds, defeated Durant’s Nate Crawford 4-3 to win the title.
Lusch (26-5) will start his title quest against Miami’s Eli Hale on Friday at the state wrestling tournament.
At 119 pounts, Hughes (22-6) outlasted Altus’ Matt Wilhite 13-8 in the regional final. He will wrestle Tahlequah’s Jacob Russell in the opening round.
Wagoner (26-6) neat out Southeast’s Jemuel Duran 2-1 in the regional final. He’ll wrestle Skaitook’s Alex Allen in the state tournament opener at 130 pounds.
Porter, the lone senior in the bunch and a Western Michigan signee, had a close match with Altus’ Jeremy Delzer in the 145-pound finals, finally beating Delzer 2-1.
Porter (35-1) will take on Harrah’s Richard Griffin in the first round of the state tournament.
Look after the jump for other Mid-Del athletes who had impressive weeks last week:
Trez Colbert, Midwest City: Last week’s Mid-Del Player of the Week had a game-high 24 points in a win over Midwest City, then scored 15 in a win over Norman.
Larry Cunningham, Carl Albert: Cunningham scored 23 in Tuesday’s overtime win over Deer Creek, then scored 18 in a 68-62 win over El Reno in the Titans’ regular-season final on Friday. Both were good for team highs.
