Landry Chappell and Bryan Dutton have been the one-two punch for Guthrie football, wrestling and baseball for the last three seasons. This past weekend, the punches kept on coming.

Chappell collected two falls and a major decision en route to his 220 pound championship. Dutton was a perfect 5-0 with three major decisions. It was the first tournament of the year for Chappell while Dutton stayed perfect in his second tournament this season.
At 152 pounds, Guthrie’s Devin Bilyeu made the semifinals with three wins before losing in the semi’s, but finished strong in his final match to capture third place.
Sophomore Conner Howard finished the weekend with a 4-2 record, including two falls, for a fifth place finish.
