Edmond North wins 3 Dog Night

EDMOND — Edmond North had already proven it was tournament tough. Monday night, the Huskies showed they’re not too shabby at the duals, either.

North, ranked No. 2 in Class 6A by, powered its way past both of its in-town rivals at the 3 Dog Night event at Edmond Memorial, dropping the host Bulldogs, 59-9, and topping Edmond Santa Fe, 37-22.

The event comes not long after the Huskies had an impressive second-place showing at the Geary Invitational, finishing only behind top-ranked Broken Arrow.

“We have the ability to put guys into the finals of tournaments, which makes us good there,” EN head coach Andy Schneider said. “But the strength of our room is our ability to be tough up and down the whole team.”

Lance Dixon at 195 pounds, Derek White at 170, Dakota Zickefoose at 160 and Jordan Armstrong at 126 each earned falls in both of their matches at the 3 Dog Night. Andrew Dixon also earned one fall at 220, as well as a 7-1 decision.

Against Edmond Memorial, Husky Jordan Prince came up with a 5-0 decision at 113, Cy Trindle a dominant 15-0 win at 120, Caleb Alexander a 15-2 win at 132, Bryan Creel a 15-7 victory at 152, Ethan Strange a 13-5 decision at 182 and Nolan Malloy a 6-2 decision at heavyweight. The Bulldogs’ highlights of the match were a fall by Jonah Moore at 138 and a 6-1 decision for Alec Warren at 145.

Against Edmond Santa Fe, Prince won 12-0 and Reggie Dunn had a 5-4 decision at 145. The Wolves were led by falls from Jon Wynn at heavyweight and Mason Stowers at 152. They also received wins from Jett Sturges at 120, Coy Grover at 132 and Brett Dunning at 138.

“Anytime you come to this event, it’s a rivalry deal, so Santa Fe and Memorial really go after us. There’s a lot of pride on the line,” Schneider said. “We came in with a target on our backs.”

The individual match of the night was the 195-pound battle between Edmond Santa Fe’s Alvin Bazley and Edmond Memorial’s Jeremy Morgan. Bazley suffered a minor injury in the second period, but fought through pain to force overtime, then came up with a 5-3 decision. His team also held the Bulldogs off, 36-24.

Leland Anderson had a fall for the Wolves at 170, as did Stowers at 152. Dunning also had a technical fall at 138, Sturges a major decision at 120, Blaine Harris an 8-5 win at 160 and Anthony Robinson a 3-1 victory at 220.

The Bulldogs picked up falls from 113-pounder Mark Delay, 132-pounder Jonah Moore and 145-pounder Warren, while also getting wins from Tristan McBee at 182 and Cole Boker at 126.

  • Former OSU line coach having impact on Texas staff

    It was quite possibly the biggest coaching coup of the offseason and Oklahoma State was at the wrong end of it — former Cowboy offensive line coach Joe Wickline joining the staff for Charlie Strong’s Texas Longhorns.
    “It’s always good when you go hire staff and you look at just getting the right people within your program. And, a lot of times, guys know a lot of Xs and Os, but it’s all just about developing a player,” said Strong, Tuesday during the Big 12 Conference Football Media Days. “Joe and I, we’ve coached together at two different places. But just with him being within his conference and knowing the conference, he’s been a great asset.”

  • spts-AF Will Conant kicker.jpg Air Force kicker Conant named to Groza Award watch list

    Air Force senior Will Conant, an Edmond Memorial graduate, is one of 30 players nationwide to be named to the 2014 Lou Groza Collegiate Placekicker Award watch list, as announced by the Palm Beach County Sports Commission.
    Conant hit 32-of-33 PATs and 11-of-13 field-goal attempts last season. He ranked third in the conference in field-goal percentage with an 84.6 mark that is the fourth-best in school history and best since Joey Ashcroft hit 88.8 percent (16-18) in 2002.
    Conant is one of two kickers in Air Force history to hit three times from 50-plus yards in a season. He hit three 52-yard kicks last season (versus Colgate, San Diego State, New Mexico), matching Ryan Harrison’s three 50-plus field goals in 2007. Conant’s three 50-plus field goals already rank him third in school history in career 50-yard field goals.
