“We've got four guys coming back tomorrow that we think can place. We got to put those four guys in the consolation matches then we've got to win some finals matches tomorrow, which we can do.”

Jones admitted, however, that the Dixon triplets, who are expected to win each of their state championship matches Saturday, make it tough for Broken Arrow to repeat.

“Nobody in the state has an answer for them,” he said. “We don't. Nobody does. You got 60 plus points sitting there.

They have got some other guys that can wrestle. I am not taking anything away from them, but they are just hard to stop.”

Edmond North won its first duals state championship two weeks ago and is seeking its first state wrestling tournament championship as well.

The Huskies are also expected Saturday to crown their first individual state wrestling champion since 2007.
