Buffs fourth at Maverick Conference Tournament

McALESTER — McAlester’s wrestling team scored 163.5 points and finished fourth at the Maverick Conference Tournament in Wagoner over the weekend. Donald Cannon led the way for the Buffs, winning the 126-pound weight class with a 14-1 victory against Will Tiger from Tahlequah Sequoyah.

The Buffs also got three second-place finishes from  Dalton Rippy, Hunter Scott and Riley Smith. Those three, along with Cannon, make up the quartet of Buffs who made the 2013 state wrestling meet last season.

Wagoner’s Trey Ivy scored a third-period takedown to beat Rippy in the 106-pound weight class, according to a Tahlequah Daily Press article by Sports Editor Ben Johnson. Jay’s Derick Shrum pinned Scott at 3:38 of the 132-pound championship.

Though Smith hung with Hulbert’s Bryson McGowan for the first two periods of the 220-pound match, McGowan eventually won 7-1. While Rippy wrestled in the same class at which he made State last season, Scott and Smith both moved up from 126 and 195 pounds, respectively.

McAlester finished its tournament with consolation championships by Hunter Smith at 113 pounds and Kole Rollins at 170 pounds. Hunter Smith pinned Vian’s Anthony Chew at 2:17, and Rollins won a 7-2 decision against Poteau’s Khy Mote.

Other Buffs who wrestled but didn’t place include Jeremy Thomas (120 pounds), Josh Richards (132), Cody Scott (136), Andrew Rogers (145), Blake Scott (152), Dustin Starwalt (152), Jonathan Herrick (160), James Remedi (182), Michael Mann (195), Payton Haynes (220) and Austin Hilton (285).

With seven Jr. Buffs placing at the Maverick Conference Tournament, McAlester took third in the junior high tournament. Individual placers:

• Ty Nohelty, first, 89 pounds

• Mason Johnson, second, 98 pounds

• Jacob Thomas, second, 126 pounds

• Matt Drake, second, 162 pounds

• Jake Rattan, third, 106 pounds

• Karter Kelley, third, 120 pounds

• Josh Countz, fourth, 150 pounds

Other Jr. Buffs who wrestled but didn’t place include Andrew Cregan (80 pounds), Andrew Guyer (113), Connor Wilkinson (132), Dakota Smead (140), Coltyn Price (175), Deon Smith (200) and Dylan Bigham (heavyweight).

The Buffs next wrestle at the Bishop Kelley Tournament starting Friday.
