Gonzalez loses in consolation semifinals

OKLAHOMA CITY — — Enid freshman 145-pounder Anthony Gonzalez fell just one match short of placing at the Class 6A state tournament Saturday.

Gonzalez lost to Jenks’ Jake Pattinson 7-4 in the consolation semifinals. The two had split two previous matches this season.

“It was a lot closer than the score indicated,’’ said Enid coach Jory Dick. “He wrestled extremely well. He just made a mistake defending against a takedown and ended up on his back and that was the game.

“I have nothing negative to say about his performance. He’s really grown as a young man this year.’’

Gonzalez finished the season at 14-11.

“I’m extremely proud of him,’’ Dick said. “To have him for three more years is huge. I think the others have seen through him that hard work does pay off in the end.’’

Enid had three state qualifiers for the first time since 2005. Billy Grothe (126) and Jake Scott (220) were 0-2 Friday.

“I haven’t quit smiling all week,’’ Dick said, “just thinking about what we have accomplished. This is a great thing for Enid wrestling,’’

Dick said he wished to thank his assistants and the Enid administration for their support. The Plainsmen had four other wrestlers come within a win of qualifying for state.

Scott and Grothe were the only seniors to wrestle at regionals.

“As much as I hate to see Jake and Hunter leave, I’m really excited about the guys coming back,’’ Dick said. “It’s a feather in my cap.’’
