Dixon Brothers from Edmond Make Wrestling History

Last night I had the pleasure of watching the Oklahoma Wrestling state high school championships.

There were a ton of good matches.  For example, the match between Keegan Moore and Joe Smith was epic and there two wrestlers who were 4-time state champs.

In my opinion the fact that the Dixon Triplets(Lance, Joel, and Andrew) all won a state championship.  This has to be the first time that three brothers(that were triplets) have a won a wrestling state championship on the same night.

Their Dad must be Proud

I don’t know the Dixon brothers, but I have watched them wrestle for the last 9 years.  The father must be super proud.  He is probably telling himself that it was all worth it.  He has had to buy three of everything like wrestling head gear, shoes, wrestling bags, etc..

I know first hand that wrestling can get expensive and I only have one child to pay for. I’m thinking the dad woke up and thought to himself… “I must be doing something right”.  I completely agree.  These brothers have accomplished something that has never been done before.

The Dixon Brothers are the Three Musketeers

All three brothers wrestle for Edmond North high school.  Last night Edmond North won its first team state title in school history.  They dethroned Broken Arrow, who has won the previous three titles.

In fact, they have been so dominant this year that they won 6A dual state, 6A academic champs, as well as last night state championship.  It’s safe to say that the Dixon brothers were a major reason for their team’s success.

Next year will be their Last Year

The rest of the 6A Oklahoma wrestling squads better watch out.  These young men are only juniors.  That means they will be a dominant again next year.  I’m guessing there will be quite a few wrestling articles about the Dixon triplets.  In signing off, I want to say congratulations to all of the Dixon brothers as well as Edmond North.  Can the three brothers do the same thing next year?  We will have to wait and see.

What are your thoughts?

These are just my thought of a wrestling dad.  I hope you enjoyed the article. Feel free to post any comments at the end of this article.  Thanks for reading and have a great day!

  1. I was just notified that I was partially incorrect. The Lorne brothers from Lawton High all won state championships in 1993. The difference is that the Dixon brothers are identical triplets. That is the first time that identical triplets have won a state title in the same year.

  2. I am the father of triplet boys who are age 5 and this is their first year of wrestling and yes it does get expensive but it is worth it to see the big smiles and all three of their faces.
