Blackwell downs EHS wrestlers

BLACKWELL, Okla. —  Blackwell, ranked No. 2 in 3A, used six falls to defeat Enid 51-23 in a high school dual wrestling match Tuesday.

The loss dropped Enid to 0-4 in duals, three of which have come against teams ranked in the top three in their class. EHS visits 6A No. 4 Sand Springs Thursday.

Enid got falls from Billy Grothe at 138 and Keegan Clayton at 160 and major decisions from Zac Overbeck at 220 and Caleb Harris at 182. Troy Gray outlasted Dakota Hadam, 23-21 at 132.

“Some of the guys who got beat did some things well,’’ said Enid coach Corey Clayton. “Some of the guys who won could have done some things better. All of this is preparation for the regional tournament.

“My toughest challenge is for the guys not to get down on themselves ... we have wrestled such a tough schedule, but we have a choice of getting tougher or continuing to get beat.’’

Clayton said the Plainsmen lost a few matches at the end “when we gave up some points or got turned on our backs and got pinned ... what we have to learn is we have to focus all six minutes, we can’t take any time off. We have to fight through it and not give up so many pins.’’

Clayton said he feels his team is getting tougher and should benefit by wrestling an easier schedule the second half of the season.

“The guys just have to believe in themselves,’’ Clayton said.쇓

    Some have said Green-Beckham doesn’t deserve another chance, at least at another Division I school.
    Others say this is a low-risk, high-potential move by the Sooners, citing Green-Beckham will be on a short leash and it gives OU another experienced and big- play receiver to compliment Sterling Shepard.
