Sports THE JOURNAL, Thursday, March 1,2012. B3 SHS crowns three matmen; cagers still alive Three Stillwater High wrestlers stood atop the medals' platform Saturday night proudly displaying state cham- pionship hardware. Winning their first state crowns were l l3-pound freshman Joe Smith, 220-pound senior Paul Wilson and 285-pound senior Travis Morgan. Behind this trio, Coach Doug Chesbro's Pioneers claimed third in the Class 6A State Tournament this past weekend at the State Fairgrounds Arena in Okla- homa City. Broken Arrow finished as the tournament champion with 122.5 points, followed by Tulsa Union with 108 points and Stillwater with 82. Smith, the son of Oklahoma State head wrestling coach John Smith, pinned Yukon's Boo Lewallen in 3:44 in the 113-pound finale. Wilson held off Seth Calvert of Broken Arrow, 2-0, in the 220-pound finals and Morgan edged Chase Duke of Sapulpa, 3-1. Stillwater also had a consolation finals champion as 106-pounder Kaid Brock scored a 12-3 major decision over Jacob Fontanez of Owasso. During Coach Chesbro's tenure, the Pioneers' best finishes were a couple of state runner-up finishes, while SHS also had another third place finish. Smith is on track to become a rare four-time state cham- pion, while it was good to see Wilson and Morgan finally capture a state crown after a couple of near-misses. XXX Stillwater High's boys and girls basketball teams will take the more difficult path if each expects to advance to the Class 6A state tournaments in a couple of weeks. Both teams were defeated in regional tourney title games last week, forcing both into the losers' bracket. The Pioneers and Lady Pioneers will have to win twice this weekend to earn the coveted state tourney trip. The Pioneers dropped a 56-52 decision at Tulsa Edison in the regional finale, while the Lady Pioneers were defeated by Tulsa Washington, 57-34, in a regional title contest. The Lady Pioneers will travel to Bixby for Area Tour- nament play, beginning tonight against Tulsa Union at 8 o'clock. If SHS survives tonight's game it plays the loser of a winners' bracket game between Bartlesville and Muskogee Saturday for the trip to state. SHS's boys go to Sapulpa where the Pioneers will challenge Bixby at 8 p.m. Friday. If the Pioneers get past Bixby they will take on the loser of a winners' bracket game between Tulsa Union and Tulsa Washington on Saturday with the winner going to state. XXX Stillwater High' s basebaUers open the season Saturday when Coach Tony Holt's Pioneers host Bartlesville for a doubleheader, starting at noon at Couch Park diamond. The twinbill will be the first of a five-game, season opening home stand for SHS. The Pioneers, who have lofty expectations this season, entertain Tulsa Kelley for two games on Tuesday, March 6, starting at 4 p.m. and host Midwest City for a single game, starting at 5 p.m. Friday, March 9.

John Lazenby III followed with 18. Coyle reached the con- solation finals with a 48-35 win over the Welch Wild- cats Friday afternoon. The Bluejackets built a comfortable halftime lead of 25-9. Welch nibbled into the deficit slightly in the second half for the final verdict. Aska scored 17 points and pulled down 17 rebounds to lead the Blue- jackets. CHS opened the area consolation bracket with a hard fought 51-47 win over the Woodland Cougars last Thursday. Coyle held a slim 20-19 halftime advantage before Woodland surged in the third quarter the gain a 34- 32 lead. The Bluejackets outscored Woodland 19-13 in the final period to gain the win.

Another split last week for Cowboy basketball It was another lose one- win one week for Okla- homa State last week as the season begins drawing to a close. The Cowboys opened with a 77-64 Bedlam loss at Norman last Wednesday but the week ended with a solid 60-42 home win over Texas A&M Saturday after- noon. The split ensures the Pokes will finish no worse that seventh in the Big 12 regular season standings. In fact, that was where OSU was predicted to finish in the preseason. Against the Aggies, it was the first game without freshman La'Bryan Nash who fractured his left hand in the game against Okla- homa. At first it was ruled a season-ending injury but head coach Travis Ford told the media after the game he would evaluate things before making a decision. The Cowboys led 29-26 Coyle 48, Welch 35 WHS 5 4 14 12-35 CHS 12 13 11 12-48 Welch - Mount 11, Burhanan 10, Chenoweth 7, Davis 6, Smith 1.

Then both teams went in opposite directions in the second half. O-State outscored the Aggies, who will be part of the South- eastern Conference next season in all sports, 31-16. Texas A&M shot a cool 30 percent from the field which included an 0-of-8 from beyond the three-point arc. Meanwhile, the Cowboys hit 10-of-23 second half shots for a respectable 43.5 percent. From three-point range, OSU was 4-of-5. OSU also had the advan- tage of points in the paint (20-14), second chance points (7-4), fast break scoring (2-0), and bench scoring (9-2). That last stat is a welcomed sight now that Nash appears to be out of action. A&M's 42 points were the lowest by an OSU oppo- nent in Big 12 Conference play this season and was one point more than the fewest allowed by a league team since the conference was formed in 1996-97, according to information released by the OSU media relations team. Three players finished in double figures for OSU led by Brian Williams with 17 points, 13 of which came in the second half. Keiton Page added to his storied career with 15 points. More on him in a bit. And Markel Brown chipped in 12 points. Page became the all-time school leader in minutes played for a career. The Pawnee senior played 35 against the Aggies for 4,166, which wa one more that Bryant "Big Country" Reeves played during his four-year career. With three three-point goals, Page sat a 278 for his career, which was one short of the school record held by Randy Rutherford who had 279 in his three-year stint. He was also one shy of tying John Lucas for the seventh-most by a Big 12 player. Most likely he broke. those marks in Monday night's regular season finale against Kansas. Against the Sooners, the Cowboys were on the receiving end of yet another conference road loss. OU led the entire game despite the efforts of Page ..... Page finished with29 points with 26 of the, tfi coming in the second hali  He also lit up the Lloyd Noble Center hitting 9- of-17 three-point goals, In fact, the only way the Sooners were able to stop him was when he fouled out with 13 seconds left. Wil- liams added 11 and Nash chipped in 10. It was reported Nash left with his hand in a splint: Now we all know what the result was. As mentioned, the Cow- boys finished up the home portion of the schedule Monday night against the Jayhawks. With Page being the only senior, it was only fitting he should have the limelight to himself because of the accomplish; ments he's earned during his career. OSU will be at Kansas State Saturday to finish up the regular season. The Big 12 tournament starts next Wednesday. MARCH 17 I0 A.M.
