Jaguar Classic begins today

OKLAHOMA CITY — The 26th Annual Lady Jaguar Classic is set for today through Saturday at Westmoore High School.

    Along with the 17th ranked Jaguars, No. 6 Booker T. Washington, Norman High, No. 20 Eisenhower, No. 13 Sapulpa, Mustang, No. 3 Carl Albert (5A) and W.O.L.T. will be on hand.

    The tournament starts at 1:30 p.m. when Westmoore and Eisenhower face off in first-round action. Mustang and Sapulpa will play at 3 p.m., while BTW and W.O.L.T. hit the court at 4:30 p.m. Norman High takes on Carl Albert in the 6 p.m. nightcap.

    The championship is set for 6 p.m. Saturday.

    The Jaguars are coming off a crushing overtime loss to rival Southmoore Tuesday. Despite that, sophomore guard Ashley Gomez likes what she is seeing from her team as they head into their own tourney.

    “We’ve been playing together for a year now,” Gomez said. “We’ve finally found our roles on the team. We know exactly who can shoot, who can do this. We’ve just gotten so much better on the court together.”
