Top 15 moments of 2009-10 (Part I)...
By Robert Przybylo
Well, we did it. We’re through another great year of high school sports. A lot of great moments, a lot of special kids, here is just a small sample of some of my favorite memories.
Qualifying statement: I had to see these in person. I know I missed a lot of great moments so these can only be the ones I actually saw.
Here we go.
No. 15 – Bethel repeats as slowpitch softball state champions
This was a wild game against Purcell in the championship. At first, you thought the Wildcats were going to run the Dragons right out of the park. Purcell fought back, but it was still 12-4 entering the seventh inning. Then things got wacky. Purcell had hit after hit after hit only to lose 12-9. Bethel’s Brittany Watson is one of the best softball players I’ve seen in my three years of covering the game.
No. 14 – Edmond North boys swim team ekes out 200 individual medley relay
This is more of a personal one as I was gassed after all the 5A championships. However, this relay woke me up and had me ready to roll for the next hours. Edmond North just barely edged out Union by .06 for the title. Of course, Jenks would sweep both the boys and girls championships as Jacob Pearce had a memorable Saturday.
