Perry Wrestling Spotlight – Presented by First Bank and Trust

After a tough regular season in duals, the Perry Maroons have finished the regular
season as district champs once again. The season started off with a, 25-45 defeat at the hands of El Reno, the fifth ranked team in Class 5A. The Maroons bounced back with a, 37-29 win over Blanchard on the road.

As the district schedule rolled around in January, the Maroons went on a run with
wins against Tonkawa, Pawnee-Hominy, Hennessey, and Oklahoma Christian School.
January was closed out with the Big 4+4 Tournament that featured several
Perry wrestlers making their way to the podium.

Wrestling at 175-pounds, Kaleb Owen finished the tournament in 2nd
place with wins over Jason Osgood of Blackwell, Jaxon Goddard of Ponca City,
and Jonavin Mullins of Elgin.

In the finals, Owen would fall to senior Holden Martin of Westmoore.
Treg Bowman placed 2nd in the 190-pound bracket picking up four falls
in a row over Noah Lloyd of Coweta (Fall 1:26), Kaiden Lewis of Ponca City (Fall 1:21), Asher Walls of Choctaw (Fall 1:34), and Jordan Cox of Westmoore (Fall 5:22).
In the finals Bowman would lose to Kruz Goff of Blackwell.
