TULSA â€” On Friday morning, it looked like the only two Conference USA football teams who were undefeated â€” Houston and Tulsa â€” would mean a good game. For three quarters, it was.
But the Cougars showed the Golden Hurricane that they're for real and deserving of their Top 10 ranking with a 48-16 victory at Skelly Field at H.A. Chapman Stadium.
I really donâ€™t understand why high school girls play fast-pitch softball in the fall and slow-pitch softball in the spring.
I believe it would be to everyoneâ€™s advantage if they would play fast-pitch softball all year round. Our county is loaded with teams that are very highly regarded, and we had a state champion last fall â€” the Panama Lady Razorbacks.
Plus, the spring is the time of the year when all the surrounding states play fast-pitch softball â€” as well as at the collegiate level â€” and their spring schedule could be a stair step to bigger and better things.

The Lady Vikings will return to Oklahoma Collegiate Athletic Conference play tonight as they will travel to Warner to face the Connors State College Cowgirls at 6 p.m.
I must say I enjoyed my little down time last week with no high school athletics happening. But as they say, â€śAll good things must end.â€ť
