White had lost to Marek three times this season. He also avenged an earlier loss to Brock Warren of Broken Arrow in the first round.

“He had two upsets,” Lance Dixon said of White. “It was an amazing thing for him. He pulled it out and I am so happy for him.”

Edmond North coach Andy Schneider was most happy for former Huskies head coach and current assistant Rick Bollenbach, who just missed winning a state championship 11 years ago.

“He started the whole program at Edmond North,” Schneider said. “They were a point and a half away 11 years ago. When we switched places (four years ago), I made sure he stayed on. I think this means a lot to him.”

Bollenbach said getting so close in 2002 still sticks in his craw.

“It will always be there, but this definitely makes it a little easier,” Bollenbach said.
