EDMOND â In 2012, the Spiro Bulldogs baseball team made the Class 3A State Tournament, only to suffer a heartbreaking 1-0 loss to the Verdigris Cardinals in the quarterfinals.
The same two teams met Friday afternoon in the Class 3A State Tournament semifinals at Edmond Santa Fe High School.
Unfortunately for the âDogs, the same result happened.
The Cardinals defeated the Bulldogs 10-4 to advance to today's state title game. Spiro ends the season at 27-7.
BARTLESVILLE â The Carl Albert State College baseball team split its first two games of the Region II Tournament at Doenges Ballpark.
The Vikings staved off elimination Friday afternoon with a 2-0 win over the Northern Oklahoma College-Tonkawa Mavericks after losing their opener 4-3 to the Western Oklahoma State College Pioneers on Thursday night.
The Vikings (23-30) did not know as of press time who their opponent would be at 3:30 this afternoon. In one scenario, the Vikings will play the loser of Fridayâs Murray State/NOC-Enid game this afternoon.
The Poteau Lady Pirates soccer team, who are going to watch their Pirate counterparts try to win the Class 4A state title tonight with a win over Oklahoma City Santa Fe South, did not make the playoffs. However, they ended the season by winning their final two matches and three of their last four to end the season at 3-10 and 2-4 in district play. For the seniors, it was a grand way to go out.
WISTER â Earlier this year, Wister baseball player Tyler Gibson signed with Seminole State College. A second Wildcat senior, Colby Turnipseed, signed to play college baseball at Carl Albert State College in a signing ceremony Tuesday morning at the Wister Gym.
âI just like to play college baseball,â Turnipseed said âItâs close to home. I really just want to go in there and do whatever they tell me to do â and play wherever. Iâm looking forward to the opportunity. Iâm very excited.â
