Kooper Doucet wins Junior High State in final attempt Todd Brooks
Kooper Doucet had one last shot to become a junior high state wrestling champion and he took full advantage.
Last weekend, Doucet, a freshman, outlasted his opponents through seven matches to claim the 150-pound state championship.
He was the only Comanche wrestler to win a championship, but not the only one to have success. Caden White placed fifth and Kasen Vanbuskirk took third. Brook West and Hannah Koehn made Comanche history with second and third place finishes in their weight classes. They are the first Comanche girls to place at the tournament.
“The first day which had four rounds wasn’t too hard,” Doucet said. “The second day, all three of my matches went into the third period.”
In the semifinals, he had a tough match against a wrestler from Owasso and then had another tough match in the final before he recorded a pin to win the championship.
