“We lost some stands and a couple of light poles,” Morris said. “Our softball, baseball complex was hit hard.”

Morris said the support from the community and the rest of the state has been amazing. She said coaches and administrators have been calling in from all over the state for any assistance.


A number of school districts in the path of the tornadoes suffered minimal damage or none at all.

Edmond athletic director Mike Nunley said Edmond Public Schools were OK. Deer Creek football coach Grant Gower said the same thing, as did El Reno athletic director Rocky Carter.

Though right at the heart of the storm when it started, Canton did not receive a lot of damage, said football coach Robert Davis. He said things were back to normal Wednesday, and they still had their team camp. Norman was the same way as the Tigers concluded their spring practices with their Orange-White scrimmage Wednesday afternoon.
