FEBRUARY 1 OSSAA DUAL RANKINGS WITH DUAL RECORD AND NAME OF HEAD COACH

  2. Bixby, 9-0, Ray Blake
  3. Broken Arrow, 9-3, Rodney Jones
  4. Stillwater, 13-2, Ethan Kyle

  8. Deer Creek, 12-7, Russell Caldwell

Following a dominating regular season, Edmond North comes in as a strong favorite to capture the Class 6A Dual State title. A vastly improved Sand Springs team and a dangerous Stillwater squad meet in an interesting 1st round dual, with the winner more than likely taking on the Huskies in the semifinals.  Bixby and Broken Arrow will likely have a rematch of their January 25 dual (won by Bixby 40-24) to decide the finalist from the bottom half of the bracket.  With Class 6A having so many DI signees and nationally ranked wrestlers competing, there is the potential for fireworks and several matches that could be previews of the state finals coming up in a couple of weeks.
