Broken Arrow slips past Huskies at Dual State
There hasn’t been a repeat Dual State champion among the largest schools since 2005. Unfortunately for defending state champion Edmond North, parity prevailed again Saturday at the Class 6A Dual State championship at Yukon High School.
The No. 2-ranked Huskies saw their hopes for a repeat title end with a razor-thin loss to Broken Arrow in the semifinals at Yukon High School. After trailing through the first 12 matches, the Tigers took control with a fall by Paden Bailey and held on for a 33-32 win.
Broken Arrow went on to beat Stillwater in the finals, 29-24. It was the Tigers’ seventh Dual State title.
