VIAN, OK — Class 3A No. 6 Locust Grove clinched a District 3A-7 wrestling title and a spot in the dual team state tournament Thursday after going 3-0 in district duals at Vian.

The Pirates (3-1) lost only four matches on the day, all due to forfeit.

Locust Grove first embarrassed Checotah 60-6 and continued its success by defeating Quinton 70-6. The Pirates’ toughest challenge came from No. 13 Vian, but the district champions prevailed with a 69-12 victory.

Locust will return home Tuesday night to take on Hulbert and Salina, with matches set to begin at 5 p.m.
