“We will be seeing some teams that we haven’t seen yet and some that we have had,’’ said Enid coach Trent Holland. “Sapulpa has some good wrestlers and we’re looking forward to seeing them. Jenks always runs a good tournament.’’

Sapulpa has wins over Cleveland (63-12) and Catoosa (40-32), and a loss to Sand Springs (37-23).

Enid will be joined by Bartlesville, Bentonville (Ark). West, Bethalto Civic Memorial, Ill., Carl Junction, Mo., Jenks, Locust Grove, Melissa, Texas; Moore, Newton, Kan.; Owasso, Ponca City, Pryor, Putnam City North, Putnam City, Salina, Sapulpa, Southmoore, Springdale Hem-Ber, Ark., Tomganoxic, Kan.; Westmoore and Yukon at the Jenks Tournament.
