Tahlequah set to host Reasors Track Classic

Local briefs

Jenks and Broken Arrow battled it out last week at the Broken Arrow track meet and that’s likely to happen again today at Tahlequah High School.

Last week, the Broken Arrow girls beat Jenks, and the Jenks boys held off the Tigers to win at the Broken Arrow track meet. Both school will be at Tahlequah High School today along with Union, Bishop Kelley, Muskogee, Booker T. Washington and more.

The Tahlequah girls are coming off a ninth-place showing at the Broken Arrow meet, where Tahlequah’s Amy Hembree (12:18) finished second in the 3,200-meter race — only two seconds behind Broken Arrow’s Kelsey Bottomly (12:16).

The Tahlequah boys logged a seventh-place showing at Broken Arrow. Eric Garcia led the way for the Tigers in the shotput, where his throw of 47 feet, 9 inches beat out Southmoore’s Dakota Troglin’s throw of 47 feet, 1/2 inch.

The Tigers also had a second-place showing by Brandon Conrad (6 feet, 2 inches) in the high jump and a fourth-place finish by Chet Rotton (12 feet) in the pole vault. The Tigers’ two-mile relay team also came in fourth.

The Reasors Track Classic will start with field events at 10 a.m. Running events begin at 10:30.

Tigers win tourney opener

CATOOSA — Tahlequah’s baseball team won its fourth straight run-ruled game on Thursday with an 11-1 trouncing of Wagoner in the opening round of the Inola tournament — which was moved to Catoosa due to inclement weather.

The Tigers are now 10-6 and have won nine straight games. Tahlequah will play the winner of Metro Christian/Okmulgee on Friday at 7:30.

In the win over Wagoner, Brock Mitchell pitched the first 4 1/3 innings for the Tigers. Mitchell gave up five hits, one earned run and one walk while striking out one. Houston Glad came on in relief for the final 1 2/3 innings, where he didn’t allowed any hits while recording one strikeout.

Tahlequah took the lead for good against the Bulldogs with a run in the second inning. The Tigers would add four in the fourth and six in the sixth.

Glad led the charge offensively, driving in four runs during a two-for-three effort. Austin Riley and Ben Stacey both had two hits while Stacey had three runs batted in to go along with a home run. Ryan Sanders also had a home run for the Tigers while plating two runs.

Keys games altered at Gore tournament

Keys’ baseball team will play Braggs (3 p.m.) and Checotah (7 p.m.) on Friday on the opening day of the Gore tournament, which was pushed back to a two-day tournament due to inclement weather on Thursday.

Keys will play in the White pool along with Braggs, Checotah, Sallisaw Central and Okay.

Games and opponents on Saturday will be determined by play on Friday.
