The nine longest playoff streaks in the state continued this season, with Davis extending its streak of playoff appearances to 29.
The Wolves haven't missed the postseason since 1983.
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.
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.”
