GIRLS

Class 6A

MVP: Kaylan Mayberry, Tulsa Washington

Mayberry had big plays in each of the Hornets' state tournament wins, but she'd never come up any bigger than she did Saturday against Bixby. Mayberry hit two critical 3-pointers in the fourth quarter as Bixby was making a late push to hold off the Spartans and help give the Hornets their first title since 2009.

The team

Christina Devers, Bixby, 16.7

MaKenzie Ellis, Tulsa Washington, 12.3

Tamara Lee, Edmond Santa Fe, 26.5

Kaylan Mayberry, Tulsa Washington, 15.0

Stevi Parker, Bixby, 11.0

Class 5A

MVP: Ashley Gibson, Deer Creek

Gibson was only the Antlers' leading scorer in the championship win over Shawnee, but the senior set the tone for Deer Creek throughout the tournament. Saturday, it was Gibson's terrific first half, along with the strong play of Bayli Blanchard, that kept the Antlers in the game.

The team

Bayli Blanchard, Deer Creek, 13.7

Gioya Carter, Carl Albert, 21.5

Ashley Gibson, Deer Creek, 14.3

Bailey Taylor, Shawnee 17.7

Dakota Vann, Deer Creek, 14.3

Class 4A

MVP: Brooke Palmer, Fort Gibson

Palmer was the dominant force inside that fueled the Tigers through the tournament, averaging 20.7 points per game and 11.3 rebounds per game.

 

The team

Lakota Beatty, Anadarko, 15.5

Kaely Bond, Mount St. Mary, 15

Allie Glover, Fort Gibson, 11.7

Brooke Palmer, Fort Gibson, 20.7

Aimee Rischard, Mount St. Mary, 10.3

Class 3A

MVP: Ashley Hughes, Sulphur

Hughes was hitting from the start, scoring at least 15 points in each game, dropping 29 on Adair in the semifinals. In the title game, she had 15 points, five rebounds and three assists to complete Sulphur's perfect season.

The team

Jordan Gorham, Perkins-Tryon, 15.0

Ashley Hughes, Sulphur, 19.7

Teanna Reid, Millwood, 19.0

Tierani Richardson, Sulphur, 11.7

McKenzie Stanford, Perkins-Tryon, 12.3

Class 2A

MVP: T'ona Edwards, Northeast

Edwards didn't lead the Vikings in scoring during the tournament, but she was the catalyst on their suffocating defense. Her five steals against Fairview proved crucial in the semifinals, and her six rebounds and six assists were just as huge against Alva.

The team 

Breck Clark, Dale, 20.5

T'ona Edwards, Northeast, 12.0

Jaden Hobbs, Alva, 23.7

Lora Riley, Alva, 7.0

Lanesia Williams, Northeast, 15.3
