  • Shawnee’s grapplers grabbed four wins by fall Thursday, and Class 5A’s fourth-ranked Wolves topped Noble 45-29 at the Shawnee High School Performing Arts and Athletic Center.
     
    This moves the Wolves to 4-1 on the season in duals.
     
    The Bears took an early lead in the contest, winning five of the first six bouts by way of two decisions, a technical fall and two pins. Shawnee’s Michael Smith, at 120 pounds, put the Wolves on the board with a 7-3 decision against Caleb Blakely, and the hosts later gained some ground by winning four consecutive matches by fall.
     
    Corey Todd (145) sparked the rally buy taking down Noble’s Matt Howard in one minute, and teammate Matt Daniel (152) followed suit with a pin of J.E. Bailey in 4:28. Shawnee’s Daylan Stuteville (160) and Thomas Shepherd (170) rounded out the assault as Stuteville won by fall in 1:07 over Brian Pendarvis, and Shepherd won by fall over Shawn Hasselburg in 1:31.
     
    The Wolves picked up three wins by forfeit, at 182, 220 and heavyweight.
     
    “I don’t know why, but we just didn’t wrestle well,” said Wolves coach Larry James. “But, we got a win.”
    James credited Daniel with having a “really outstanding match against a state placer.”
     
    Shawnee will take part in the Carl Albert Tournament today and Saturday. The 23-team field, made up mostly of Class 5A entrants, will include the No. 2 Lawton MacArthur Highlanders and the No. 3 Altus Bulldogs.
