(Oklahoma City-AP) -- A junior varsity wrestler from Broken Arrow is reported in serious condition today at University Hospital after apparently suffering a broken neck during a match.

A hospital spokeswoman says the boy has sensation in all limbs but still faces several tests.

The wrestler was injured during a tournament last night at Mustang High School. Mustang assistant coach Danny Brown says the injury apparently occurred when the Broken Arrow wrestler butted heads with his opponent.

The boy's name hasn't been released.
