Sequoyah-Tahlequah was recently stripped of a slowpitch softball state championship due to use of an ineligible player.

It's the second consecutive year the board has heard an appeal just before the playoffs began that could affect the playoff bracket.

Last season, Guthrie was not on the initial bracket after the Bluejays were forced to forfeit games after using of an ineligible player. The board overturned that ruling after Guthrie and coach Rafe Watkins self-imposed sanctions that included Watkins missing the playoffs and several games this season.

MEMORIAL READY FOR REMATCH

Edmond Memorial didn't look like a playoff team in a season opening 44-0 loss to Edmond North.

The Bulldogs lost their first five games of the season, but won four of their last five to make the postseason and set up an Edlam rematch Thursday night with Edmond North in the first round of the Class 6A playoffs.

“It really is a great turnaround,” said Edmond coach Justin Meredith, whose Bulldogs have made the playoffs three of the last four years. “I give the kids all the credit. They did a great job.”

Despite being drubbed by Edmond North in the season opener, the Bulldogs are eager for the rematch, Merideth said.

“I think the kids want to prove they can play better than they did in the first game and that they have gotten a lot better,” he said.

“They want the opportunity to prove they can make a better showing of it than they did in that first game. I think they will look forward to that.”
