Oologah also had seven points to finish eighth.

Claremore sophomore Nathan Kuykendall cruised to a third-place finish in No. 2 singles, defeating Stillwater, 6-0, 6-3 in his final match of the day.

Kuykendall advanced to the third-place match after opening with a 6-1, 6-0 straight set victory over Oologah, and then falling 6-2, 6-2 to Bartlesville in the semifinals.

In No. 2 doubles, Claremore juniors Derrick Brown and Spencer Gotcher also claimed third place with a 6-1, 7-5 straight-set win over Tahlequah in their final match.

Coming out in No. 1 singles, Claremore junior Caleb Cotner regained his confidence after falling to Tahlequah in a grueling first-round match.

Cotner and his Tahlequah opponent battled neck-and-neck before the Tigers’ netter claimed 4-6, 6-3, 10-7 victory.

Cotner came back to beat Oologah’s Sturdivan, 2-6, 6-4, 11-9 in his next match and then dropped Stillwater’s Stine in straight-sets, 6-3, 6-4 to take fifth place.

In No. 1 doubles, Claremore seniors Trevor Beck and Hayden Phillips placed sixth after falling in a tough match to Ponca City’s Cloud/Wynes.

Ponca City’s duo gutted out a 1-6, 6-3, 10-4 over Beck/Phillips in the final match.
