CHAPPELL BOUNCES BACK AT YUKON

But Chappell bounced back well after falling to Chickasha's Jacobi Brown in the finals at 225 pounds in the Carl Albert Invitational on Jan. 13.
At last weekend's Jay Hancock Invitational at Yukon, Chappell cruised through the first two rounds with pins before winning a pair of tight matches to get the victory.
In the semifinals, he held off Sand Springs' Kyler Childers 3-0, then beat Putnam City's Elie Rushing 4-3 in triple overtime to take the title.
