Top-ranked Edmond North will travel to No. 4 Yukon on Thursday in a Class 6A wrestling dual for west side supremacy.

The 7 p.m. dual also pits coaching brothers Andy (Edmond North) and Joe Schneider (Yukon) against each other.

“The wrestlers always make a big deal out of it,” said Andy Schneider, who is 4-0 against his brother. “They call it the ‘Schneider Bowl' and have some fun with it. But the biggest thing I like about it is he always has his kids ready to go and it's a good test for our team.”

Due to the poor weather before Christmas, this marks the first dual of the season for Edmond North. Yukon had its first dual on Tuesday, a 59-6 win over Mustang.

DEER CREEK'S HAIVALA COMMITS TO OU

Deer Creek sophomore soccer player Lauren Haivala verbally committed to Oklahoma on Tuesday.

Haivala, a midfielder and forward, was the Antlers' leading scorer last season with 17 goals and three assists.

“She just does whatever it takes to get herself in position to score,” Deer Creek coach Misty Thompson said. “She's someone you want to see play at that next level. She definitely has what it takes to play at the next level.”

Her biggest performance, though, came in the Class 5A championship game when she scored both of the Antlers' goals in the 2-1 win against Carl Albert.

“Her work ethic is unreal,” Thompson said. “Teammates, even as a freshman, really respected her as a player.”
