OKLAHOMA CITY — Following its season-opening dual victory over Oklahoma Wesleyan, the Labette Cardinals wrestling program traveled south on Saturday for the OCU Open.

Nobody for the Cardinals placed in their weight class divisions, but seven wrestlers earned points for Labette.

Jacob Roberson (133), Andrew Leitold (197), Justin McGough (285) and Mateo Pena (285) scored four points for the Cardinals. 

Cade Wathke (141) scored 3.5 points for Labette, while Cordell Hunt (149) and Dylan Priddy (133) scored three points.

“The tournament was a learning experience for our freshmen,” Labette head coach Jeff Vesta said. “I think we came into the tournament and let our nerves get the best of us. We went out and had some tough matches, but overall have some things to change and improve on. That’s typical for the first tournament of the season.” 

Labette returns to dual action on Wednesday as the Cardinals travel north to face Neosho County.

“If we take this first weekend as a learning experience,” Vesta said, “and improve on the little things, we’ll be just fine. Now we’re focusing on our dual Wednesday night and need to have everyone go out on the mat and get their hand raised.”
