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.

Tray Dorrell, Del City: The junior (23-1) qualified for the state tournament as the second seed from the East regional, taking Tulsa Union’s Josh Walker to the wire before Walker came out with a 3-2 win. Dorrell will take on Edmond Santa Fe’s Brett Dunning in the opening round of the 6A tournament.

Mariah Jackson, Del City: Jackson scored nine in a Tuesday win over Norman North, then scored a team-high 18 in a five-point win over Southmoore on Friday.

Richa Jackson, Midwest City: Jackson scored a game-high 15 in a Tuesday win over Norman, then had 20 in a Friday win over Moore.

Blake Lam, Carl Albert: The junior (25-8) qualified for the Class 5A state tournament, where he’ll open against Tulsa Edison’s Patrick O’Brien.

Kylie Mays, Carl Albert: Mays scored a team-high 14 and played dominant defensive on the interior in a win over El Reno on Friday. In Tuesday’s eight-point win over Deer Creek, Mays scored 12.

Xavier McClish, Midwest City: McClish led the Bombers with 16 points in a 29-point win over Norman, a few days after scored 23 in a win over Moore.

Chris Stevenson, Del City: Stevenson scored 47 points in a pair of wins last week, scored 26 in an overtime loss to Southmoore on Friday. On Tuesday, Stevenson had 21 in a 51-46 win over Norman North.

Karlton Tallbear, Midwest City: The Bombers’ senior (24-6) won the Class 6A consolation finals, beating Muskogee’s Dylan Fields 5-3. He’ll open the state tournament against Shawnee’s Zane Talton.
