Western Heights guard Antoinet Webster finally found a college basketball home.

Webster, whose lack of any NCAA Division I offers was the subject of an Oklahoman story earlier this year, signed with Tulsa, Jets coach Carol Beall said.

Webster averaged 19.2 points as a senior for Western Heights, which missed the Class 5A state tournament for the first time in three seasons. Webster (5-foot-9) was forced to shoulder the load for the inexperienced Jets.

Webster joins a Tulsa recruiting class of 2012 that includes a few big names around the metro — Shawnee's Kelsee Grovey and Kaitlyn Ramirez and Midwest City's Ashley Clark.

TRACK MEET OF CHAMPIONS GROWING

More than 300 athletes competed in the Oklahoma Track Coaches Association Meet of Champions last May, and Dennis Seifried expects close to 500 in the third year of the event.

It will be held next Tuesday at Moore High School, with any champion or runner-up from a state meet eligible to participate. Additional qualifiers will be chosen based on top times from state and regionals.

“It's going to be a big meet now that it's really rolling,” said Seifried, the Weatherford track coach and OTCA president. “If it keeps growing, we're hoping to make it an Oklahoma-Texas deal. We're trying to build it to get it back to what it was in the 1970s.”

Athletes who qualify can sign up for the meet at OHSTrack.com.
