Second round road trips
By Jason Kersey
Being in the playoffs can sometimes mean traveling to face teams hundreds of miles away.
The longest such trip in the state this week belongs to Velma-Alma, which must travel 349 miles for its Class A second-round game against Texhoma, a panhandle town which borders Texas to its immediate south. According to Google Maps, that’s a road trip of six hours and 32 minutes and includes a lengthy trek through the Lone Star State.
Honorable mention goes out to Weatherford, located on I-40 in Western Oklahoma, which must travel 320 miles (4 hours, 54 minutes) to Broken Bow, located in southeastern Oklahoma just 20 minutes from Arkansas.
Also making a lengthy trip is Class B’s Laverne, located in northwestern Oklahoma, which must go 272 miles to Dewar (4 hours, 39 minutes).
