Piedmont forward Cameron Peters verbally committed to Oklahoma Christian, according to his father.

The athletic 6-foot-5 senior, who averaged 18.8 points per game last season, has been a key force in the Wildcats' 8-1 start this year.

Piedmont, currently ranked No. 4 in Class 5A, is in action Thursday against Clinton in the opening round of Kingfisher's Buckle of the Wheatbelt Tournament.

SOUTHMOORE WRESTLING CLAIMS 6A-2 TITLE

Southmoore won its second consecutive district wrestling title at Mustang on Tuesday with three dual wins.

The SaberCats defeated Mustang (42-25), Choctaw (39-31), and Norman North (46-30) to win the 6A-2 title and advance to the Class 6A Dual State Tournament.

“I think we had the toughest district in the state,” said Southmoore coach Greg George, whose team is ranked No. 7 in 6A. “We're the only district that had all four teams ranked. I felt lucky to go in there and be able to get three wins. We didn't really know what to expect coming in, but we wrestled well.”

Southmoore joins second-ranked Stillwater, which won District 6A-7 last week, as the only teams to qualify for the 6A tournament so far. The other six participants will be decided by the end of the month.

The 5A and 6A dual state tournaments will be held Feb. 15 at Yukon.

TUTTLE TOPS LAWTON MACARTHUR IN DUAL

Class 4A's top-ranked Tuttle defeated 5A No. 2 Lawton MacArthur, 40-15, in Lawton on Tuesday.

Tuttle's Tanner Litterell (113 pounds), Blake Dauphin (126 pounds), and Brik Flippo (132 pounds) lead the way as each earned wins over state placers. Tanner Johnson (138 pounds), Dayton Garrett (145 pounds), and Dakota Head (160 pounds) picked up bonus-point wins to put the dual out of reach as the Tigers won 11 of the 14 matches.
