For the first time this season, Broken Arrow and Edmond North's wrestling teams went head-to-head in a tournament.
At the 69th Annual Geary Tournament, which finished Saturday, Broken Arrow came out on top, winning the team title 149-128.5 over Edmond North. Lawton MacArthur (108.5) finished third, ahead of Locust Grove (80.5) and Altus (76).
The finish was Edmond North's highest ever at the prestigious tournament, which features a blind draw to determine the brackets instead of a seeding system.
Each of the top two teams had four wrestlers win titles.
Edmond North's Dixon triplets — Lance, Joel and Andrew — each won titles.
Lance edged Broken Arrow's Brock Warren 4-3 to win at 182 pounds; Joel won a major decision over Duncan's Marcus Stewart 16-4 at 195; and Andrew beat Westmoore's John Finn 7-0 at 220.
Edmond North's Derek White won a technical fall over Westmoore's Chase Silva for the 170-pound title.
Zack Edwards (132), Tanner Bailey (145), Paden Bailey (152) and Carlos Taylor (285) won titles for Broken Arrow.
Norman North's Harden Harrison edged Edmond North's Josh Breece 6-4 in overtime at 126, while Edmond Memorial's Alex Warren won at 138.

OKC SEEKING TWO NEW COACHES
Oklahoma City Public Schools athletic director Keith Sinor is in search of two new football coaches to fill vacancies at John Marshall and Southeast.
Bruce Troxell stepped down at John Marshall shortly after the season, and Michael Branch resigned from Southeast, stepping away from high school education entirely.
Sinor said the school district is actively working on both coaching searches.
