When it came to the championship rounds David Carr and Ian Parker each secured their first individual titles.

No. 2 Ian Parker vs. No. 1 Dom Demas – 141 pounds

These two aren’t unfamiliar with each other. Demas walked into this match 2-0 against Parker this season so far.

The match went into a sudden victory two where Parker was able to get to Demas’ leg and secure a takedown to clinch the title.

There is nothing like winning your first Big 12 title but getting the job done against a Cowboy on their home turf is even better. Sheets was able to get an escape to take the lead 3-2 but Carr was able to work his magic and get a takedown to bring the score back in his favor. Carr ultimately won 6-4.

Heavyweight No. 2 Gannon Gremmel went up against No. 5 Brian Andrews of Wyoming and ultimately lost in a 3-2 decision also walking away runner-up.
