Wrestling Cards Are Dual State Champs Again ...
But it wasn't easy ... Altus was having their way to a 0-17 score after the first 5 bouts before Justin Walker finally put Collinsville on the score board. It was looking more like an early bus ride home than hoisting the state trophy for the 5th time. Altus was still ahead 10-24 with just 4 bouts left. The only pin for either team (provided by Roc Robbins) still left Collinsville trailing at 23-24 which left it up to Justin Kothe's 6-4 win to keep Collinsville in the tournament.
In the finals Coweta ran out to a 0-15 lead but Collinsville scored the next 15 to even the match ... then Collinsville extended their own lead to 36-21 before forfeiting the final two bouts as they already had the state title in their pocket and still have work to do with regionsl and the state tournament in the next two weeks.
Justin Kothe had to win the last bout of the semi-finals (at 220 pounds) against Altus or the Cardinals would be eliminated. Justin responded with a 6-4 victory to send Collinsville into the finals -vs- Coweta.
This was the reaction on the Collinsville bench in the closing moments of Justin Kothe's Altus bout.
Kothe's heroics were make possible by wins -vs Altus by Walker, Tanner, Connor. Ryan Haymaker, Arnold, and Roc Robbins. Each was critical but none more exciting than Roc Robbins' pin of his Altus opponent to pull Collinsville within a single point at 23-24. Robbins also pinned his Piedmont and Coweta opponents.
Justin Kothe started the Piedmont match with a 3-2 win in front of good sized Collinsville crowd that traveled to Shawnee Saturday.

No other Oklahoma community's 5A wrestling team has won a state championship since Coach Weston Harding took over as Collinsville wrestling's head coach for the 2011 season. His team will be defending their other format state title Feb. 27-28, 2015, in OKC, following Feb 20-21 regionals at Tahlequah.
Cody Fox was ready but didn't make a mat appearance as he drew a forfeit against Piedmont. Collinsville didn't send out a heavyweight against Coweta as they already had the title wrapped up. Jake Douglass wrestled at 285 against Altus.
Stillwater needed an overtime win in the final bout to take the 6A title over Broken Arrow.
