New Lexington Head Wrestling Coach Mike McKay said his team has been working hard this season and gave an overview of the season recently.
Ty Jasperson, a senior from Purcell, is representing LP wrestling.
“He hasn’t wrestled since little league and has been having an amazing senior year,” head coach Mike McKay said. “He placed second at 132 pounds during the Paul Valley High School tournament January 6. He placed second at the Madill Tournament January 14 and has a 19-8 record.
“Eli Sherwood is a freshman from Purcell wrestling both high school and junior high events. He placed fourth at heavyweight at the Pauls Valley Junior High tournament January 6 and was second at the high school tournament in Madill at 215 pounds. His record is 9-3.
“Izzy Pack is a female senior from Lexington at 155 pounds where she is considered a favorite to win the state championship this year,” McKay said.
She is 18-1 on the year.
McKay’s high school girls won the Pauls Valley Invitational Tournament earlier this year.
“Cilee Turner is a female wrestler from Lexington who was state runner-up last year. She is undefeated this year as a junior at 190 pounds. She is also considered a favorite to win a state championship,” McKay said.
She is 18-0 this season.
McKay said Tristan Buchanan is a high level wrestler who went to the state tournament last year.
“He is wrestling the best I’ve seen and has a real chance at becoming a state placer this year. I believe he has a chance to bring home the state title at 138 pounds,” the coach said.
His record is 22-4 this season.
“I want to build up this program the best I can,” McKay said. “If any student athlete from Lexington or Purcell High school wants to try wrestling, we want them in the program. We have a boys team and a girls team.”
