T-Wolves, Tigers wrap regular season

NORMAN — The regular season has officially ended for Norman teams. Norman North managed to get in an 8-5 win against Deer Creek amidst senior day festivities, while Norman High was rained out at home against Midwest City.

Both the Timberwolves and Antlers used the game as a chance to give a handful of pitchers some time on the mound, but that didn’t mean North wasn’t focused on winning.

“We had the game at Midwest City on Friday that was called due to lightning. After the storms, we were finally able to get our field ready for today and it was our senior day. It was nice to be able to send our seniors off with a win and we had three that had huge games,” said North coach Brian Aylor.

Austin Taylor lead the T-Wolves, batting 2 for 2 with a three-run double that gave North the lead for good in the fifth inning. Luke Jones was 2-2 with two doubles and an RBI, and Tyler Bottoms was 2-3 with two RBIs.

“It was good for those seniors to get out of here with a win. Hopefully, it will be some good momentum going into the regional,” said Aylor.

North lead 4-2 after the first inning but fell behind 5-4 after three complete innings.

Cory Carter picked up the win in relief for the T-Wolves after four innings of work by Nick Warren. Austin Cranford entered in the sixth inning to pick up the save.

North will host a regional this week, but the visiting teams won’t be decided until all of the district games are complete.

The Tigers attempted to play but found out that it was still too slick after Friday’s thunderstorm. NHS coach Pete Sangirardi believes the Tigers are headed to Yukon for a regional that will start Wednesday if the weather holds. Saturday’s rain-out will not be made up.

“No, we’re going to save our pitching,” said Sangirardi. “It’s not going to be an easy regional at all.”
