— This week's winter storm never allowed Shattuck coach Kenna Young to see film of Red Oak.

The Indians, however, didn't worry about that during Thursday's Class B quarterfinals.


Junior Daniela Galindo scored 30 points — 21 of which came from the free-throw line — to propel No. 11 Shattuck to a 55-51 upset of the fourth-ranked Eagles at Carl Albert High School.

“I'm glad I've got to shoot a lot of free throws during the season because it really showed that game,” Galindo said. “I started getting nervous a little bit at the beginning, but I knew my team was helping me and it calmed me down.”

Shattuck (25-5) plays No. 8 Erick on Friday morning at 10:30 in State Fair Arena. This is only the second state tournament appearance for the Indians, who advanced to the semifinals in 2007.

Shattuck trailed for most of the game until senior Katelyn Cummings scored five straight points early in the fourth to take a 42-39 lead.

The Indians then built their lead to 11 before fighting off a rally attempt by the Eagles, who got within three points with 5.7 seconds remaining. Galindo, though, made 1 of 2 final free throws to seal the game.

Cummings finished with 14 points.

Baylee Evans led Red Oak with 19 points and Kendra Coleman scored 13, respectively.

Red Oak, though, struggled mightily shooting, finishing well below 30 percent from the field.

“Generally, I really don't know because I didn't see a tape,” Young said. “We shot from the hip today.”
