Sequoyah shatters Hugo in Shawnee

SHAWNEE — Behind some high-powered offense, the Sequoyah Lady Indians defeated the Hugo Lady Buffs 17-1 on Thursday in the quarterfinals of the 3A Fast Pitch State Championship tournament.

“We went five innings against Hugo,” said coach Jeff Turtle. “That’s the first time [Hugo] had ever made it to state, so I don’t know if they were overwhelmed or what. The atmosphere was really good, there were a lot of fans from both schools, from all the schools playing there today. It was loud, and of course we jumped on them early, scoring three in the first, four in the second.”

Leading the offense were Megan Towie with a home run, Symphoni Shomo with a grand slam and Merissa Smith with an inside-the-park homer. Sequoyah had 14 hits against Hugo, Turtle said.

The five-inning, short-game victory sends Sequoyah, ranked No. 1 in 3A, into the state semifinals today at noon at the Ball Fields at Firelake, 18160 Rangeline Road in Shawnee.

SHS faces Henryetta, a 9-2 victor over Oktaha.

Turtle said Sequoyah watched Henryetta play on Thursday and realized they’ll have their work cut out for them.

“We’re going to have to play good,” said Turtle. “They’re a good team; we think we’re a good team. We’ll have to work hard.”

In the other semifinal at 2 p.m. Thursday, Marlow faces Washington, Okla. Marlow defeated Davis 3-1 and Washington downed Meeker 2-1.

The two semifinalists will square off at 1:15 p.m. on Saturday for the state championship. Sequoyah’s victory Thursday helped them improve to 33-6 on the season.
