No team was as dominant in last weekend's state swimming championships as Edmond North's girls in Class 6A.

The Huskies took three events — the 200 freestyle relay, the 200 medley relay and freshman Ally Robertson's win in the 200 individual medley — to blow away second-place Jenks 347-262. Tulsa Union, which finished in third, was another 55 points back.

Tulsa Union won the 6A boys title with 267 points, 24 ahead of second-place Bartlesville.

In Class 5A, Bixby's boys won 375-319 over second-place Harrah. Third-place Altus had 154 points. On the girls side, Fort Gibson edged Stillwater 276-265. Third-place Harrah had 165 points.

Edmond North's girls broke five school records in the meet, while Edmond Memorial's Annah Baykal, who finished second in the 100 breaststroke, came with less than a half of a second of Samantha Woodward's school record in the event.

OKARCHE GIRLS WIN WILD REGIONAL

Sophomore Morgan Vogt hit two free throws with no time left on the clock Saturday to give Okarche's girls a 43-42 Class A regional championship win over Dewar at Agra.

Okarche was down by nine points at halftime and gradually chipped away at Dewar's lead.

The Warriors trailed by one with under a minute to go and went for a last shot, which missed. But Vogt grabbed the rebound, attempted a putback and was fouled. She sunk both free throws, and Okarche (22-6) won its 11th straight game.

Vogt led Okarche with 18 points Saturday.

Both teams advanced to the area tournament at Sand Springs. Okarche plays Copan at 6:30 p.m. Friday, and the winner of that game advances to the Class A state tournament.

If Okarche loses Friday, it still has one more shot at state in a 6:30 p.m. game Saturday.

STILLWATER BOYS BACK ON TRACK

After a nine-game win streak vaulted them well into the top 10 of Class 6A boys basketball, Stillwater's season faded in February. But the Pioneers closed the regular season with a couple of strong wins over higher-ranked opponents.

No. 15 Stillwater defeated 12th-ranked Lawton and No. 10 Lawton Eisenhower over the weekend to conclude a 16-7 regular season that exceeded expectations of many onlookers.
