Sequoyah teams reach regional finals

HEAVENER — Sequoyah passed its first test without Audrey Ballou on Thursday night. The Class 3A No. 5 Lady Indians posted a 74-46 rout of Heavener in the regional semifinals.

“We played really hard and played solid defense,” Sequoyah coach Larry Callison said. “We just couldn’t get any shots to fall.”

Yet, the Lady Indians (23-1) managed enough offense to pummel Heavener on its home floor. Loren Young led the way with 21 points for Sequoyah, which also got 10 points from Cenia Hayes.

“We rested our starters in the fourth quarter, so everyone got plenty of minutes,” said Callison, whose club took early control by outscoring Heavener 19-5 in the first quarter.

Freshman Lakota Vickers led Heavener (12-13) with 16 points. Kacee Manley chipped in with 12 points.

Up next for the Lady Indians will be Holdenville in the regional finals on Saturday night in Wilburton.

As for the fifth-ranked Sequoyah boys, they also advanced to the regional finals with a 70-65 victory over Idabel.

B.J. Leach scored a team-high 22 points for the Indians, including nine points in the fourth quarter. Caisen Green added 19 points for the Indians (21-3) and Zach Parish chipped in with 13.

Leach and Parish combined for 17 points in the fourth quarter, where Sequoyah outscored Idabel, 28-19.

“Our middle two quarters stunk on offense,” Sequoyah coach Jay Herrin said. “But we made up for it in the fourth quarter, and we hit some big free throws down the stretch.”

Ryan Scales led Idabel (12-11) with 29 points.
