Last week, seven Bluejay Pride wrestlers attended the Oklaoma Kids Wrestling Association (OKWA) State and Girls State Tournaments at the Oklahoma City Fairgrounds John Norick Arena. The OKWA State Championships are the largest and most competitive of the state tournaments held between the two organizations in Oklahoma.
Although it was a long, grueling two days full of pain, heartbreaks and hard work, it was also a weekend full of excitement, success and pride.
The event resulted in five of the seven individuals placing and taking all-state honors.
Dredyn Eaton (10u 52 pounds) finished 7th
Klaribel Kirk (12u 88 pounds) finished 4th (Girls State)
Eli Kirk (12u 80 pounds) State Champion
Allyn Orndorff (15u 89 pounds) finished 6th
Ashleigh Bounds (15u 106 pounds) finished 7th (Girls State).
The group will continue to train in all three styles of wrestling throughout the spring and summer, and will attend several national tournaments.
