Nixon, Hunter go out as winners

ENID, Okla. —

Jake Scott and Hunter Nixon will have pleasant memories of their final home wrestling dual at Enid.

Scott, ranked No. 4 in 6A, had a 15-3 major decision over Peyton Klawson and Nixon used a reverse in the last five seconds to beat Patrick Dunn 6-3 at 160 to give the EHS fans something to cheer about in a 39-23 loss to Owasso Tuesday at Waller Middle School.

“I’m proud of them,’’ said Enid coach Jory Dick. “I’m glad to see them go out as winners.’’

The Plainsmen had six wins in the dual.

“We lost, but I felt we wrestled better than we did against Woodward last week and we won that one (42-36),’’ Dick said. “I always like to think we put on a good show. I know the fans loved it.’’

Troy Gray, at 113 pounds, “really shined’’ in a 10-3 win over David Caldwell.

“Troy and Hunter were the highlights of the evening,’’ Dick said.

Billy Grothe, back from an injury, beat Al McGowan 7-1 at 126 pounds to strengthen his No. 7 ranking in 6A on the Oklahoma Wrestling website.

Keegan Clayton, at 152, got EHS some more bonus points with a 12-2 major decision over Pete Dunn. It was Clayton’s 16th victory of the season.

Heavyweight Mason Dillard, whose fall was the difference in the Woodward dual, pinned Dakota Miller in the first period.

In the featured match of the evening, Owasso’s Tee Jay Alono, ranked No. 6 in 6A, beat No. 10-ranked Zack Overbeck 4-3.

“It was a nailbitter,’’ Dick said. “Zack just didn’t turn it on until the third period.’’

The loss dropped EHS to 2-9 in duals against state opponents.

EHS visits Jenks on Thursday. That will be the last dual before regionals Feb. 15-16.

  • Jeff Mullin mug 2012.jpg Rice's punishment hardly fit the crime

    Two games, just over 12 percent of the 16-game regular season. Two games for hitting a woman hard enough to knock her out cold.
    Rice said Monday he will not appeal his suspension, which could wind up costing him $529,411 in fines and salary. And why wouldn’t he? He must feel like he got off scot-free.
