Local briefs

GROVE — Through four innings, Tahlequah was staring a 5-2 deficit in the face. That’s when the Lady Tigers rallied and eventually won the District 5A-3 clash, 8-6.

Tahlequah scored three runs in the fifth inning, two in the sixth and one in the seventh to improve to 26-1 overall and 9-0 in 5A-3 play.

Tahlequah tied the game at five on Kirsten Chase’s two-run home run in the fifth inning, and the Lady Tigers ahead in the sixth on Randee O’Donnell’s two-run single with two outs.

O’Donnell and Chase both drove in three runs apiece, and Lindsay Wade added a solo home run early in the game.

Morgan Tarrance picked up the pitching victory for Tahlequah, who will host Claremore on Thursday in a battle of the top two teams in 5A-3.

Gillian Tinnin led Tahlequah with 19 kills, and Amanda Milnick added 17.

Tahlequah has now won 11 of its last 12 matches, including a 8-1 mark in Coweta last weekend. The Lady Tigers are 19-5 and will host Sapulpa on Thursday.

  • Sooners shifting several positions

    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.
