  • The ice storm that hit Oklahoma City, but mostly missed Ardmore, made for an eventful Duncan wrestling tournament over the weekend. Plainview's wrestlers dealt with no electricity in the hotel, and it continued on Saturday when power to the gym went out for the last three matches. In available light with stop watches employed, Austin Barrick, Cameron Hanan and Dorian Fagan were all victorious. The Indians edged Shawnee 226.50 to 221 to win the Southeastern Oklahoma Invitational. Four Plainview wrestlers won their weight class. “It was a battle. I think we're getting better,” Plainview coach Rocky Atencio said. “If we can continue to work hard and get better, we will create some good opportunities.” Zach Atencio won at 113 pounds with a 3-0 record. He won by fall over Mason Phipps from Comanche and A.J. Drapper from Noble. In the final, Atencio beat Duncan's Dustin Chase 19-8 by decision. At 126 pounds, Stephen West won with a 4-0 record. He beat Julina Sisco from Azle and Kyler Allen from Comanche by fall and advanced to the finals with a 17-3 decision win over Steven Smith from Shawnee. West finished with the top point total for the Indians with 29. In the final, West defeated Shayne Revels from Comanche by fall. The Indians' success wasn't limited to the lighter weight classes. At 220 pounds, Hanan went 3-0 to win his weight class. Hanan defeated Jamel Sayeed from Lawton MacArthur by fall and edged Jonathan Gomez from Duncan by a 7-3 decision. In the finals, Hanan outlasted Gage Humphrey from Shawnee in the dark, 9-6. Fagan also brought home an individual title at 285 pounds. Fagan won all three of his matches by fall over Comanche's Chris Rhone, Shawnee's Riley Greenlee and Azle's Justin Scarbro. Fagan scored 28 points for Plainview. Darius Clark finished second at 106 pounds with two wins by fall before losing to Nick Poncho, 11-7, in the final. Garrett Willis finished second at 138 pounds with a win by fall and a 10-1 decision over Tyler Hicks from Duncan to reach the final. Comanche's Wyatt Schoolfield beat Willis by fall in the final. Tanner O'Neal was third at 152 pounds with three wins by fall and a loss to Noble's Matt Howard by fall. O'Neal scored 20 points over four matches. Barrick was third at 195 pounds. He scored 16 points and went 3-1 beating Tristan Cain of Shawnee in a 9-6 decision in his last match after winning two matches by fall and losing another by fall. Tyler Lawrence finished fourth in at 120 pounds with a 1-2 record, Preston McCathern was fifth at 145 pounds with a 3-2 record and Josh Walls was fourth at 170 pounds with a 4-2 record. Bryce Smith finished fourth at 106 pounds in the B bracket and Bodie Davis was 2-2 at 152 pounds in the B bracket. Plainview travels to Cushing on Jan. 3 for its next meet.
