Local and area briefs

Tahlequah coasted by District 5A-3 foe, East Central, in a doubleheader at Lady Tiger Field on Tuesday.

Tahlequah won the first game 19-0 before recording a 17-0 win in the second game.

In the first game, Morgan Tarrance collected two hits and two runs batted in, plus a victory in the pitching circle, thanks to a one-hitter with four strikeouts.

Randee O’Donnell finished the game 3 for 3 with six runs batted in, and Whitney Wright, Kourtney Dry and Lindsey Wade each added two hits and two RBI.

In the second game, Wade pitched up the picking victory with a no-hitter that included five strikeouts.

On offense, Britney Johnson, Kirsten Chase (three RBI) and Wright (four RBI) each had two hits.

Tahlequah is now 7-1 overall and 4-1 in 5A-3, and the Lady Tigers will play again Saturday at the Collinsville festival.

Sequoyah tops Salina

Sequoyah survived a suspenseful season opener on Tuesday, beating Salina 3-2 (23-25, 25-16, 25-13, 20-25, 15-6) at The Place Where They Play.

“We served the ball real great,” Sequoyah coach Jay Herrin said. “We had eight aces and only five service errors. That’s a real positive.”

Britanie Wacoche posted a team-high 10 kills to go along with three aces.

“We scored seven or eight straight points with Britanie serving in the final set,” Herrin said. “At that point, we were able to relax and get the win.”

Eva Hooper added 28 assists and three aces, and Baylee Herrin collected seven kills and three blocks for Sequoyah (1-0).

The Lady Indians will play again on Thursday at home against Wagoner.
