B4 - THE JOURNAL, Thursday, November 22, 2012 Sports SEASON Continued from Page team will return a sizeable group for next season. Next year's senior class could be among the largest since Wertman has been here and it will be complimented by a nice group of incoming sophomores. Next year's junior class has always been a small group but there are players who can contribute. "We've got a lot of kids coming back and with those kids, a lot of young ones got some good playing time," he said. The good numbers will quite possibly allow the coaching staff to fill a lot of holes in addition to proving a lot of depth. Offseason workouts have already started and Wertman reported there are 24 players taking part in drills. He noted that is possibly the largest group he's had. Wertman will be assisted by defensive coor- dinator Steve Grotheer with the workouts plus assessing things for next season's run. And speaking about this year's crop of seniors, Wertman was pleased with the leadership they displayed throughout the year. "I want to thank those seniors for all their hard work," he said. "Since I've been here we've never had a bad senior class. They've always taken the responsi- bility upon themselves and done a magnificent job." WRESTLE Continued from Page had the best tournament," Matheson said. "This is his first year to wrestle since eighth grade and you could see his improvement with each match." Sophomore Jeff Glenn at 145 pounds and junior Clark Crotty at 160 pounds wrestled in their first tour- nament of the season and both finished with 1-2 records. Hunter Phillips, a sophomore at 106 pounds, went 0-2 in the event. The Demons' junior high and high school wrestlers completed in the Oklahoma Oty University Pre-Turkey B1 There was a list of other thank yous that Wertman wanted to pass along. They include filmers Mike and Benita Bale and statisticians Austin Nieten- hoefer, Danny Darrow, and Winfrey Kinzie. Wertman added the Touchdown Club has been instrumental in providing a lot of assistance to the program from serving meals to the team to pur- chasing computer equip- ment and software to help with scouting and other preparations. To go along with that, Wertman offered thanks to the school district for getting wireless Interact access to the fieldhouse. Wertman also thanks Cimarron Valley Co-op as well as P&K Equipment for all their help in addition to OrthoOklahoma for provid- ing medical personnel at the games. First Baptist Church also provided its fellowship hall for team meals before games as well. And last and certainly not least, the P-T skip- per was appreciative of the support from the fans who attended the games both home and away and especially the large group at the season-ending game at Jones. "I want to thank them fans for sticking with us through thick and thin," he said. "We had a great crowd and they were very vocal and our kids and coaching staff really appreciated it."

The junior high Demons will begin with a tourna- ment at Cushing on Friday, Nov. 30, through Saturday, Dec. 1. The high school Demons open the season with a tournament at Bris- tow Dec. 7-8.

B2 Zack Craig blocked his The Cowboys basket- second Tech punt of the day ball team took a big leap in but this time he returned it 30 yards for the score. The Red Raiders added a meaningless score late in the game. It was easy to see that all facets of the OSU game are playing with much more confidence, especially in recent weeks. That will also come in handy with Saturday's Bedlam battle earning some early-season respect following their appearance in last week- end's Puerto Rico Tip-Off event with a 76-56 champi- onship win over previously No. 6 North Carolina State Sunday evening.
