It's no secret that District 5A-2 is one of the most top-heavy districts in any class.

The district features No. 1-ranked Guthrie, No. 3 Deer Creek and No. 4 Bishop McGuinness. And there is a Carl Albert team that pushed each of those three but stands with a 2-5 record after playing a loaded schedule the first six weeks.

While Frederick leads all teams with 446 points, Deer Creek is No. 2 with 358 and McGuinness is No. 4 with 344. Guthrie is tied for No. 15 with 310 points scored. The three are also among the best defenses in 11-man football, with all ranking in the top 15 in fewest points allowed.

Deer Creek leads the way with 52, good for seventh; Guthrie is No. 9 (57); and McGuinness No. 13 (62).

Two of the teams above Deer Creek and Guthrie and three ahead of McGuinness, though, have played only six games.

Vian is tops in scoring defense, having allowed just 16 points.

MARSHALL IDEAL PLACE FOR EDMOND NORTH'S DIXON

Edmond North senior pitcher Jordan Dixon's two older sisters won a state fast-pitch softball title for the Huskies and went on to play for the University of Arkansas.

Dixon, however, is not following the same path to Fayetteville, Ark., like her sisters. Instead, she will be pitching collegiately for Marshall next season.  

“That's just how it worked out,” Dixon said. “I fell in love with the campus. I fell in love with the coaches and I love it there.”
