Oks nabs McGuire Tourney Title

Oliver Oks was dominant at Nanuet and North Rockland this week.

Edgemont wrestler Oliver Oks went into the 2012 Jerry McGuire Tournament at North Rockland High School this Saturday a relative unknown.

The 170-pound senior missed most of his junior campaign due to injury and in terms of attention could easily be over-shadowed by some of Edgemont’s bigger names: Aslanian, Korek, Hopkins and Kim.

Oks showed Section 1 this week why his name deserves to be on that list, as well.

Oks entered the weekend coming off a dominant win over Nanuet’s 182-pound Section Finalist, Mike Buhlmann. Oks bumped up a weight class to face off with Buhlmann in the two schools’ dual meet on Thursday at Nanuet High School. Oks came away with an impressive 15-5 Major Decision victory that turned a few heads.

“Oliver has been working hard and we know he’s capable of winning a Section Title this season,” said Edgemont Head Coach Pete Jacobson. “A lot of people might not think of him as a Section Title contender but he’s one of the most dominant wrestlers in our room.”

Oks continued to impress at the McGuire Tournament where he recorded a perfect 5-0 weekend with four pins and a 7-0 decision to take home the tournament title. Oks did not give up a single offensive point the entire day.
