BEATTY MAKING ADJUSTMENTS

Beatty looked noticeably different on the court.

The Oklahoma State signee has already been attending practices in Stillwater this summer, and has already started to bulk up.

“I'm getting adjusted to it now,” Beatty said. “I just feel bigger. I can tell I've gotten stronger because I can pull up easier.”

Anadarko coach Jeff Zinn, who coached the West team, said it was nice to see Beatty play relaxed.

“It was nice to see her go out well,” he said. “At the end of the season I saw her play with so much pressure, so it's nice to see her go out well.”

Beatty was also selected as the Jim Thorpe Girls Basketball Player of the Year between games.

WASHINGTON, CARTER MISS GAMES

Both Jenks' Jessica Washington and Carl Albert's Gioya Carter were absent from Wednesday's games.

Washington has already left for the University of North Carolina to begin practices for the upcoming season.

Carter, who has signed with Oklahoma, chose not to play in the game, Zinn said.

FORT GIBSON'S WALKER HONORED

Fort Gibson coach Jerry Walker was named the OCA Coach of the Year after leading the Tigers the Class 4A championship.

It was the Tigers' second title in three seasons.
