Maroons pin big win in Enid

by Mike Monahan

The Blackwell Maroons high school wrestling team got their 2021-2022 season off to a great start last week with a 58-18 rout of Class 6A Enid. The Maroons got it rolling early with a fall at 106 pounds by Jaxson Brown.

Enid would then forfeit 113,120, and 132 pound matches and with a fall from Aiden O’Dell at 126 pounds it was 30-0 in favor of the Maroons only five matches in. Kaiden Ailey would pick-up a 16-3 major decision at 138 pounds and it was 34-0. Enid would win 145,152, and 170 by falls and with a fall by Jason Osgood at 160 pounds it was 40-18 going into the four upper weights. Senior Christian Mora would win a tight 9-5 decision at 182 pounds to give the Maroons a 43- 18 lead. Kruz Goff (195 pounds) and Liam Holmberg (220 pounds) would score falls for a 55-18 lead. JD McCleary would finish the night off with a 6-2 decision at 285 pounds for the 58-18 win.

The Maroons were in action last night against Ponca city and then travel down the road to the Perry Tournament of Champions this weekend. There will be teams from Ark City, Choctaw, Prosper, Texas, Owasso, and Ponca City just to name a few. It should be a strong test for the Maroons.
