King’s three individual champions, sophomore Marina Doi (101), senior Samantha Klingel (116) and junior Forrest Molinari (155), were first time winners.

OKCU’s Cody Pfau successfully defended her 101 pound title from last year, defeating Breonnah Neal of King. Pfau also took home  Outstanding Wrestler for the Year and the Outstanding Wrestler for the Tournament. She is looking to qualify for the U.S. Olympic team in April.
