Unlucky '13

Local and area teams fall short of titles in otherwise exciting athletic year

(Continued)

• Johnson, Tigers fall short of 5A crowns (May 7)

Trouble at the turn cost Tahlequah’s Jake Johnson a chance at an individual crown at the Class 5A state golf tournament at Tulsa Country Club. A bogey on No. 9 and a triple bogey on No. 10 prevented Johnson from chasing down Bishop Kelley’s Chris Karlovich on the back nine. Karlovich won an individual crown at 219, while Johnson tied for third at 223.

As a team, Tahlequah tied for fourth place with Bishop McGuinness at 962, which was way off the pace set by the state champions, the Bishop Kelley Comets at 913.

• NSU tennis loses in Round of 16 (May 8)

The NSU women’s tennis team lost 5-0 to No. 3 BYU-Hawaii at the NCAA tournament in Surprise, Ariz. The RiverHawks lost all three doubles matches before losing two singles matches to have their season come to an end in the Round of 16.

• High jump silvers for Tahlequah (May 11)

Tahlequah picked up second-place finishes in the high jump at the Class 5A state track meet in Yukon. Jordan Roach (5 feet, 2 inches) was second on the girls side behind Grove’s Emilee Iverson (5 feet, 6 inches), while Brandon Conrad (6 feet, 6 inches) lost a tiebreaker to McAlester’s Zach Skimbo (6 feet, 6 inches) on the boys side.

• Lady Indians ousted at state volleyball tournament (Oct. 11)

The Sequoyah volleyball team appeared in the state tournament for the first time since 2006, but the Lady Indians were one-and-done following an opening-round loss to Oklahoma Christian School, 3-0 (25-18, 25-20, 25-18).

• Sequoyah softball falls in championship game (Oct. 12)

A squeeze bunt by Kelsey Harmon put Washington on top for good after Sequoyah jumped out to a 2-0 lead early on in the Class 3A fastpitch softball championship game in Shawnee. Washington rallied with four runs in the fourth inning and let pitcher Allison Wells do the rest of the work as Sequoyah fell in the title game for the second straight season.

Sequoyah was limited to two hits while committing three errors.

“We made too many mistakes today to win,” Sequoyah coach Jeff Turtle said.
