Southmoore qualified for the dual state wrestling tournament for the first time in school history with the Sabercats' 35-30 dual victory over Yukon on Thursday night.

The Sabercats join Edmond North (making its fifth straight appearance), Westmoore and Midwest City as the four 6A qualifiers from the west side of the state. Southmoore coach Greg George started the wrestling program five years ago when the school was built.

“The kids we have now are the kids we started with in the seventh grade the very first year,” George said. “We finally made it (to dual state). It's wonderful. It's huge for us. It's been a lot of hours of work but it's all been worth it.”

Southmoore has two former state champions in its lineup. Nathan Marek won the state championship at 160 pounds last season while Zac Damico captured the state title two years ago at 103 pounds. Damico finished third last year.

The four east side schools to qualify for the 6A dual state tournament are Broken Arrow, Tulsa Union, Muskogee and Sapulpa. The 6A dual state tournament is Feb. 9 in Claremore.


Two Edmond Memorial swimmers set school records in the Edmond City Championships last week.

Senior Annah Baykal broke a school record that had stood for 31 years when she posted a time of 1:18.97 in the 100-meter breast stroke. The old record was 1:19.10 set in 1982.

Edmond Memorial's Zac Cook also set a new school record in the 400-meter freestyle with a time of 4:15.21. Edmond North won both the boys and girls team titles.
