T-Wolves get some respect



“She may get some minutes on Thursday or Friday,” Copeland said. “She twisted it pretty good, so we want to be sure she’s completely over it first.”

Tournaments impact finals week: While all four Norman schools were busy preparing for the tournament weekend, Tigers and Timberwolves were also busy taking finals at school.

Finals week in the Norman Public School District comes in the first weeks back at school after the holiday break, rather than before Christmas. That means that players had to squeeze all of their finals into three days before leaving today for their respective tournaments.

“The most important thing is them taking their finals,” North coach Jeff Blough said. “That’s just something we have to keep in mind when we’re getting ready to play.”

NHS wrestlers finish fourth: After traveling to Salina, Kan. for a tournament last weekend, the Tigers came home with some encouraging results.

NHS took fourth as a team at the event, while two Tigers also took home individual titles. That includes Nigel Jolliffie, who took first at 106 pounds, and Colin Pasque, who did the same at 138. In addition, Cale Stumpff finished third at 195 pounds while Cade Parker did the same at 220. In all, eight Tigers placed at the 11-team tournament.

Strong start for Noble squads: Both basketball teams in Noble are off to a strong start, with the girls at 5-4 and the boys at 6-3.

It’s especially impressive for the boys, who are ranked No. 14 in Class 5A. They dropped Tuesday’s game to Guthrie by a point, but have just two losses to in-state teams. The Bears also own an impressive 53-51 overtime win over 5A’s 10th-ranked El Reno.
