Local briefs

MOORE — Tahlequah’s slowpitch softball team went 5-1 at the Big Cat Classic in Moore on Friday and Saturday. The Class 6A No. 6 Lady Tigers went 5-0 in pool play before falling to top-ranked Moore, 8-6, in the finals.

On Friday, Tahlequah posted victories over 6A No. 12 Norman (15-0), 4A No. 2 Washington (10-0) and 6A No. 8 Southmoore (9-8 in eight innings).

The Lady Tigers followed with wins over 6A No. 5 Jenks (5-3) and 4A No. 1 Dale (9-7 in eight innings) on Saturday afternoon before the finals.

In the finals against Moore, Tahlequah out-hit Moore 18-11. Marisa Girdner went 4 for 4, Randee O’Donnell was 3 for 3 with a sacrifice fly and Whitney Wright was 3 for 4.

“We were hitting singles while they were hitting doubles,” Tahlequah coach Matt Cloud said.

Against Dale, Caitlin Chuculate came up with a go-ahead RBI single and Britney Johnson had a two-run single to add to Tahlequah’s lead.

“We played four top-five teams, and I think as a team, we got a lot better,” Cloud said. “We’re scoring eight and nine runs a game, and we’re winning games with defense. The weekend was very successful. We got a lot better. I was pleased.”

Up next for Tahlequah will be a pair of home games against 4A No. 13 Oktaha on Monday.
