Tiger wrestlers take eight golds in Chickasha

CHICKASHA —

The four-time dual state wrestling champion Tuttle Tigers displayed their dominance across weight classes in the Chickasha tournament.

An escape in the second overtime round of the heavyweight final by Dustin Mason gave Tuttle a perfect eight from eight for wrestlers contending for the title. Mason just edged Cory Barnett, who had put Chickasha's Alex Scallion out of the championship bracket the previous day en route to the final.

Noah McQuigg began the huge gold medal hall by Tuttle when he won the 106-pound final by technical fall over Wes Hardin of Westmoore. McQuigg got two takedowns in the first round to take a quick 4-0 lead. He ended the bout with a near fall in the second round.

Beau Gulley followed that up immediately with another win over a Westmoore wrestler, this one in the 120-pound class against Dalton Duffield. Gulley got his first take down as the first round closed, and took that momentum onto an 8-1 win. Blake Dauphin won the 126-pound final 6-1, and Brik Filippo won 4-2 in the 132-pound final.

Two take downs, one in the first round and the other to start the second, put Dayton Garrett on the path to win the 138-pound final by a 7-3 decision. 

A big take down and a near fall in the first round took Dakota Head past Brok Williams of Lawton-MacArthur 10-1 in the 152 final. Head completed a big take down of Williams, lifting him up in the air before a hard fall on the mat that seemed to take a lot out of the Highlander wrestler.

Riley fielder won the 220-pound final 3-1 before Mason completed his marathon heavyweight victory.
