High school baseball: Silo coach under investigation

by Ed Godfrey and Ryan Aber and Scott Wright Published: April 16, 2013

After some discussion, the board voted to allow the Bulldogs to start a week earlier.

“They looked at Arkansas, Texas, New Mexico, Kansas and Florida in addition to Oklahoma schools to try to get a game scheduled but couldn't get anything else worked out for this year,” OSSAA executive director Ed Sheakley said. “We know we need to be real careful there since they're losing a week of practice to start and the heat is an issue that time of year.”

The board also voted to send out a ballot to schools on whether or not to change the rules to allow underclassmen to participate in national all-star games.

Also, the board voted to consider charter and enterprise schools as having the same boundaries as the public schools whose borders the school lies within. Several such Oklahoma City-area schools — Santa Fe South, Dove Science, Harding Fine Arts, etc. — would share boundaries with Oklahoma City Public Schools for purposes of eligibility of incoming student-athletes.


Paced by Caroline Goodin's five-stroke individual victory, the Deer Creek girls golf team won the Suburban Conference Tournament by 78 shots on Monday at Cedar Valley's International Course in Guthrie.

Deer Creek swept the top four spots and had five of the top seven to run away with the title.

Goodin shot 72, coming in ahead of teammate Emily Folsom at 77, Haley Hill in third at 78 and Allison Mee fourth at 82.

Deer Creek posted a season-low 309 total, with El Reno second at 387.
