EDMOND NORTH FINISHES THIRD AT KC MAT TOURNEY

Five Oklahoma prep wrestlers won their weight divisions in the prestigious Kansas City Stampede Wrestling Tournament last weekend.

The tournament featured 36 high school wrestling teams from 10 states in a two-day competition.

Christian Moody of Collinsville was the champion at 106 pounds and was one of five wrestlers to finish in the top three and one of nine in the top 10. Collinsville, ranked No. in Class 5A in Oklahoma, won the tournament with 460 points.

Edmond North, ranked No. 2 in Class 6A, finished third in Kansas City, primarily thanks to the performance of the Dixon triplets.

Joel Dixon won the 195-pound division while his brother, Andrew, was the champion at 220 pounds.

Lance Dixon nearly made it a sweep for the brothers, finishing second. He lost a 13-1 decision in the championship match to Michael Pixley of Blue Springs, Mo.

It was the highest Edmond North has ever finished in the tournament. Wrestlers competed in as many as eight matches over the weekend.

“Everyone on our team had at least three wins,” said Edmond North coach Andy Schneider. “We did really well. It's a grueling two days of wrestling.”

Josh Breece of Edmond North, who won the Mid-American Nationals the week before, finished third wrestling at 120 pounds.

Tuttle, ranked No. 1 in Class 4A, had two wrestlers win titles in Kansas City, Zach Beard at 170 pounds and Nathan Jackson at 285 pounds.

Beard defeated Southmoore's Nathan Marek in a 14-0 decision in the championship match while Jackson won a 2-1 tiebreaker over Jacob Semple of Waynesville, Mo.

Tuttle finished seventh with 365 points. Other Oklahoma schools in the tournament included Class 3A No. 1 Perry (11th), Southmoore (25th), Ponca City (28th) and Choctaw (34th).
