From Duals to Championships: How Edmond North Rewrote Oklahoma High School Wrestling History Books

There have been dominant teams in the past 100 years of Oklahoma high school wrestling, but NONE that can match the season just completed by the Edmond North Huskies.  Not only did they win tournaments, they did it with record breaking numbers.  What they have accomplished certainly should be enjoyed and celebrated by all of those that are part of the program.  

Listed below are a few of the highlights of the phenomenal season.  It is mind-blowing and so very impressive to see it all listed together.  The Huskies blew away the field with record-setting numbers to win the Class 6A state championship and Class 6A dual state championship.  On the way to the state championships, Edmond North set scoring records in winning a regional title and regular season tournaments at Geary, Yukon and their conference tournament.  

And if the tournament blow outs weren’t enough, including Dual State, the Huskies had a perfect 15-0 dual record against Oklahoma teams and an overall dual record of 18-1.  Edmond North outscored the 15 Oklahoma teams by an incredible 1009-89, an average dual score of 67.3 to 5.9!  

At the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dual Classic, the Huskies finished as tournament runner-up with wins over Tuttle (59-6), St. Peter’s Prep, NJ (62-12), Buchanan, CA (35-19), and Poway, CA (25-24).  Edmond North’s only blemish on the season was a 32-31 criteria loss to the nation’s number one ranked team, national prep school powerhouse, Wyoming Seminary, PA.

Edmond North earned the ranking of the number one public school in the nation with their victories over Poway (they set a California scoring record in winning the 2024 California state tournament) and Buchanan – winner of seven of the past nine California state tournaments.  St. Peter’s easily won their regional tournament with five champions and 11 finalists as they prepare for their State Tournament.  

Keeping the team focused, motivated, and peaking at the right time was not an easy task.  Under the leadership of head coach Andy Schneider and assistant coaches David James, Mike Arnold, and Boo Lewallen, the team did just that.

The record breaking 2024 season got started in 2021, when the current seniors were freshmen and set state records for most freshmen state qualifiers (9) and most freshmen state placers (6).  The seniors went on to earn 29 state medals, including winning eight individual titles. Over the past four years, the seniors have led the Huskies to a 60-4 dual record, including a regular season record of 53-1.  The combined career records of the nine seniors at this year’s State Tournament was a hard to believe, 1040-207.

While Edmond North is graduating an incredible senior class, the depth of this year’s team with four returning state champions, a state placer, a Geary Tournament champion, plus the junior high team winning the Junior High All-State Tournament, shows that they will be a force for years to come.

Head Coach Andy Schneider stated “We knew this was a special group by what they did as freshmen.  They made the jump to the high school level and immediately, they were fearless.  Then it all came together this year.  We knew all season that this team was capable of some legendary numbers, but we wanted to wait until the final whistle of the State Tournament.  Now we can proclaim, we got to coach the best team ever in the history of Oklahoma High School Wrestling.  And what makes it extra special is that my son, Layton was a big part of it.  Although this is the ending of an era, I believe it is the beginning of a dynasty at Edmond North. When we won dual state a few weeks ago, an article said ‘first title since 2013.’  That headline made me think of what has happened in my life since that year.  There’s a lot that our family has gone through with the death of our son, Colton in 2015.  We are confident he’s looking down and sharing in this historic achievement with our family and our program.”
