KANSAS CITY, Kan. â The Oklahoma Elite softball team is now facing elimination every time it takes the field from here on at the 2011 World Series.

TULSA â Thursday night closed a chapter in life which was dear to both Talihina Golden Tiger basketball players Taggart Lockhart and Jordan EagleRoad. The local duo played together in their final high school basketball game, so to speak.
