The Jared Pierce Teammate Award is a new award that was presented at the recent Durant High School wrestling banquet. It is presented to a wrestler who best embodies what it means to be a true teammate no matter your position on the team. Pierce, who graduated in 2020 and died in an accident, was always one who stepped up to help, who helped his teammates get better and who made an impression no matter where he went. The award was presented to Michael Hill, who shares many of the same qualities that made Pierce someone special. Pierce’s dad, Chris Pierce, his brother Jensen and his mother Angela Pierce were present to celebrate this award.

It focuses on the Oklahoma Objectives for your grade level or the state that you are in. The students work on objectives they have learned in class and when that objective is mastered, they advance onto the next grade level’s objectives. It was a nation-wide contest with 143,091 classes entered in the United States, and Hazell’s class ranked 5th in the nation. They were also 1st in Oklahoma out of 1,919 classes that entered.
