Dakota Resendez

Chickasha senior Dakota Resendez battle's Lawton-Mac wrestler Dillan Rowland in the 132-pound final.

The three Chickasha wrestlers who qualified for the state tournament made the finals of their weight classes, and all finished as runners-up.

Seniors Lamar Neff and Dakota Resendez and junior Montana Moon claimed second in their weight classes after winning quarterfinal and semifinal rounds. 

"The three wrestlers placed sixth as a team in the 5A race and made it a very memorable tournament," Head Coach Chad Randle said. "It was a great season for these boys and the entire team, and I could be any more proud of them."

Each wrestler was a point away from winning their final. Moon had a more dramatic path to reach the final, falling behind in the semifinals before a near-fall put him in the lead. 

A reversal tied the semifinal match up before a take down gave Moon the 7-5 decision in overtime. 

In the final, Moon just lost out, 5-4, to Lawton-MacArthur's Wyatt Adams.

A narrow 1-0 decision handed Resendez a path to the final at 132-pounds. He then won the semifinal 7-1 to face another MacArthur wrestler, Dillan Rowland, in the final.

After a back and forth contest for three rounds, Rowland got a reversal to take a 2-1 decision to the championship with 40 seconds remaining.

Neff met a familiar face, MacArthur's Dakota Phillips, in the semifinals at 145-pounds. The Chickasha senior had upset Phillips the week prior in regionals, and Neff did the job again with a 10-2 decision to reach the final.

Collinsville's Justin Walker edged Neff, 1-0, in the final.
