EHS wrestlers' spirits high for tournament

ENID, Okla. — Enid wrestling coach Corey Clayton got the response he wanted after a 66-12 dual loss to No. 2-ranked Broken Arrow Tuesday.

The Plainsmen’s workout the next day “was a very good practice,’’ he said as Enid began preparations for today’s Norman Tournament, weather permitting

“The spirits are high,’’ Clayton said. “We need to have another good one or two.’’

The Norman Tournament will be similar to last week’s Mid-America Nationals in Enid. Each wrestler will be placed in a pool. Where he finishes in the pool, will determine what place he’ll wrestle for.

“We should get four to five matches,’’ Clayton said. “We’re just trying to get a lot of mat time and experience.’’

EHS wrestlers will be down to what should be their weights for the rest of the season, Clayton said.

The Plainsmen will have Kenau Quinn (1-6) at 106, Austin Loza (1-6) at 113, Tyler Reese (0-2) at 120, Troy Gray (1-1) at 132, Billy Grothe (5-3) at 138, Johnny Glasgow (3-6) at 145, Anthony Gonzales (0-1) at 152, Keegan Clayton (4-4) at 160, Issac Barron (2-0) at 170, Andy Reyes (3-5) at 182, Caleb Harris (6-3) at 195, Zach Overbeck (4-4) at 220 and Mason Dillard (3-5) at heavyweight.

Today’s field includes Norman, Norman North, Midwest City and Moore among others.

“We have been at a disadvantage early giving up so much size,’’ Clayton said. “We have seen four to five ranked teams in the top 30. I don’t think our records reflect our skill level. We have wrestled tough competition by design. We wanted to know where we were early in the year.’’

  • Jeff Mullin mug 2012.jpg Rory McIlroy: There's a new tiger in town

    His father introduced him to the game when he was small, putting a golf club in his hand when he was barely past the toddler stage.
    He fell in love with it and worked hard, improving steadily. He became a terrific junior player and quickly improved.
    He was touted as the next big thing and didn’t disappoint.
    Now, at the tender age of 25, he is a multiple major champion.
    Tiger Woods? Yes, once upon a tee time. But now those words are being spoken about Rory McIlroy.

    For ex-Oklahoma State star Rickie Fowler, this is getting downright familiar.
    He’s not complaining.
    For the second time this summer, Fowler played in the final group of a major championship, failed to overcome a big deficit, and settled for the runner-up spot.
