Seminole extended its streak to 28, while Cascia Hall has made the playoffs 26 consecutive seasons and Jenks has made 24.
The longest streak snapped this year was Glenpool, which had made the playoffs 15 consecutive seasons before its 3-7 record this year left it out of the playoffs.
Bixby and Shattuck had 12-year streaks snapped.
On the other side, several schools broke long playoff droughts, Caney Valley is making its first appearance since 1982, the second-longest drought in the state among teams that have playoff appearances in their history. Northwest has the longest playoff drought, dating back to 1968.
Tulsa Memorial (1989) and Merritt (1993) also snapped 15-plus year playoff droughts.
SEQUOYAH HAS CHANCE TO APPEAL
An appeal for Sequoyah-Tahlequah is on the agenda for Wednesday's meeting of the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association's board of directors.
The appeal is scheduled for 1:30 p.m.
It's still unclear whether the school will appeal the forfeiture ruling that led to the Indians being bounced from the playoffs, or just the players' eligibility going forward.
Twelve Indians football players — eight initially and four more shortly thereafter — were found to have violated OSSAA rules regarding payment of individual camps and clinics during the offseason.
The players received an injunction that allowed them to play in the Indians' final two regular-season games.
