Tigers’ Reed ready to take his place in pitching rotation



Jags win Classic: No. 5 Westmoore defeated No. 4 Moore 5-1 Saturday in the finals of the Big Cat Championship at Southmoore.

The Jaguars went undefeated over the two-day competition that included wins over No. 2 and No. 9 Jenks.

“We needed that boost to know that we are still on top,” Westmoore’s Anne Ramirez said. “We can still go out there and beat the best teams. Moore is a top team for us and so is Southmoore. To get revenge on Southmoore was nice. The team needed it.”

Royals wrap tourney: The Community Christian girls completed their tournament run in Midwest City Saturday, falling 4-2 to U.S. Grant.

The Royals picked up goals from Kerri Ohsfeldt in the 70th minute and Carlee Appel, assisted by Ohsfeldt, in the 75th minute.

The loss dropped the Royals to 1-2 at the tourney and 2-3 for the season, though everything may be relative, as the Royals are in their first season of varsity soccer competition and are fielding a team that frequently includes only 11 players.

“I am truly pleased with our girls after the first five games of our season … to be competitive in every game,” Royal coach Angela Madory said, “especially with no substitutes on the sideline.”

Earlier in the tourney, on Thursday, CCS fell 4-0 to host Midwest City, before rebounding with a 2-0 victory over Del City.

Tigers eighth on links: Shortened to 18 holes as a result of the closure of Emerald Falls, the Norman High boys and 15 other high school golf teams were left to make the most of Forest Ridge Golf Club for the rare 18-hole tournament.

The Tigers, led by Turner Howe’s 80, placed fourth with a team total of 334, tying them with Jenks, one spot and one stroke behind Cascia Hall and two strokes behind Bishop Kelley.

Also for the Tigers, Elliott Greenlee finished with an 82, Hunter Smith fired an 83, Jacob Askey came home in 89, Andrew Cook shot 91 and Shane Marshall, playing unattached, shot 95.
