Powerful Huskies rolling into Dual State
The Edmond North Husky grapplers barrelled over Choctaw 59-13 Tuesday night at North High School. Despite the lopsided score, several key factors went into the triumph.
The Huskies finished the regular season with an untarnished 9-0 mark; it was the concluding home match for the most successful group of seniors to ever step on the mat for North; the win secured the Huskies’ fifth consecutive Metro Conference title; dropping the Yellowjackets gave North its fifth successive undefeated regular season under head coach Andy Schneider and the blue and gray will head into Saturday’s Dual State tournament at Yukon as the No. 1 seed. The Huskies face Muskogee at noon with the semifinals slated for 2 p.m. and the finals at 6:30. If North wins in round one, the Huskies take on the Broken Arrow/Southmoore winner in the semis.
