Poteau junior Dallas Terry was thrilled when she made this week's Class 4A State Tournament, which will take place today and Thursday at Oklahoma City's Lake Hefner Golf Course. However, there were some nervous moments at last week's regional tournament at Fountainhead Resort.
For each of the last two basketball seasons, Dakota Farris and his Whitesboro teammates have been within a win of making the Class B State Tournament, only to lose both the area finals and consolation finals in back-to-back nights to end their seasons.
Thus, making it to this weekend‚Äôs Class A State Track Meet, which will take place Friday and Saturday at Midwest City Carl Albert High School‚Äôs Titan Stadium, is a great feeling.
‚ÄúI was excited because I finally had succeeded in my goal to make it to state,‚ÄĚ Farris said.
