After back-to-back appearances at the Class 6A girls basketball state tournament, Norman North coach Jeff Blough decided it was time to step down.

Blough resigned his position as the Timberwolves’ coach on Tuesday, according to the Norman Transcript.

Blough told the Transcript he made the decision to step down so he could spend more time with his two young children. He will continue to teach at Norman North.

Norman North will be a prime job for coaches in the market to move up. After going 19-7 this past season, the Timberwolves graduate only one starter.

The Trojans’ pitcher struck out four batters.

However, that performance was not enough to catapult Douglass to a tournament title as Northwest Classen came away with the crown, beating Douglass, Capitol Hill and U.S. Grant.

Northwest Classen put five players on the All-Tournament Team, including senior Lee Pham.

The team also included juniors Austein Brown, Fransisco Gayton, Rhueben Green and sophomore Pablo Gutierrez.

The rest of the All-Tournament Team included U.S. Grant’s Kotcha Scott, Mico Scott, Aaron Waller and Armando Valenzuela; Southeast’s Richard Chavez, Juan Luna and Marin Muniz; and Capitol Hill’s Denny Do, Ully Villalobos and Juan Varela.
