THS volleyball beats Cardinals

Local briefs

COLLINSVILLE — Amanda Milnick recorded 13 kills, four blocks and three aces to lead Tahlequah’s volleyball team to a 3-1 (25-18, 25-17, 22-25, 25-19) victory over Class 5A No. 10 Collinsville on Tuesday night.

Also for Tahlequah, Ginnan Tinnin had 14 kills and four aces. Alli George added nine kills while Katie Schneider (16) and Kalie Champlain (12) both finished with double-digit assits.

The Lady Tigers (2-1) will now take a two-match winning streak into Thursday night’s home game against NOAH.

Lady Tigers stay unbeaten

SKIATOOK — Tahlequah continued its season-opening streak on Tuesday, shutting out Skiatook 4-0 in a District 5A-3 road game.

The Lady Tigers grabbed an early lead in the second inning on Whitney Wright’s two-run single up the middle. Wright added another RBI base hit in the fourth inning, finishing the night three for four.

“Whit is swinging it well,” Tahlequah coach Matt Cloud said. “And she’s picking us up in the top of the order.”

Morgan Tarrance picked up the pitching victory for Tahlequah, scattering eight hits over seven innings. She also recorded two strikeouts and two walks.

Tarrance also pitched out of trouble on a couple of occasions.

In the third inning, Tarrance wiggled out of a bases loaded jam — twice. With one out, Skiatook’s Paige Westover got caught stealing between first and second base, and after Kourtney Lincicome walked, Sara Villalobos struck out to end the inning.

Westover tried to make up for the base-running lapse in the fifth, but her single to right field went for naught when Tahlequah right fielder Lindsay Wade threw out Maci Willingham, who tried to score from second base.

“Morgan didn’t have her best stuff, but she battled and we made plays behind her,” said Cloud, whose team improved to 14-0 overall and 2-0 in district play. Tahlequah is now one of only three unbeaten teams in Class 5A.

The Lady Tigers will play again Thursday at Sallisaw.

    Experience comes from encountering the same things in the same ways over and over again. Oklahoma’s Geneo Grissom and Julian Wilson have that at defensive end and nickleback in bunches.
    However, both will be seeing new things when practice begins. Grissom is moving to outside linebacker. Wilson will be getting a look at cornerback as his senior season begins

  • Lindley, Tom.jpg Better police needed for college teams enticed to cheat

    The NCAA once cracked down on colleges that went too far luring top prospects, then it targeted teams that lathered players with special treatment. That was until the NCAA's get-tough approach backfired, rendering it ineffective and creating an opportunity for those who want to play dirty.

  • Really one true champion?

    I decided to spare the colleagues in front of me – and myself from making a scene – by holding back flipping my table at the Big 12 Conference Football Media Days in Dallas.
    I had become exhausted by the constant use and misrepresentation by the Big 12 with their moniker of “One True Champion.” If they are going to live with the slogan, then they need to abide by that slogan.
    Perhaps its a simple case that they are keeping constant with the poor math of the 10-team Big 12 Conference.
