WRESTLING: Chickasha wrestling secures spot at dual state

Jan. 22—The Chickasha wrestling team is heading back to state.

The Fightin' Chicks competed in their Class 5A district duals last week and took care of business. The Fightin' Chicks rolled to four victories in Chickasha, an unblemished district record and a spot in February's Class 5A state tournament.

Chickasha competed in a district with Lexington, Santa Fe South, Noble and Blanchard. The Fightin' Chicks had very few problems making their way through the district duals.

Chickasha scored at least 66 points in all four duals and won all four of its duals by at least 51 points.

And now, Chickasha will have another chance to compete for a state title at dual state after having that same shot a season ago. Advancing to dual state for the second season in a row, Chickasha will compete in the 5A state tournament this season after advancing to the Class 4A semifinals last season.

Chickasha's semifinal loss came to state champion Tuttle.

And, as a top-five team in the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association's Class 5A polls, Chickasha figures to be one of the top seeds in the tournament. Class 5A dual state will take place at the Stride Bank Center in Enid on Feb. 10.
