High school notebook: Bill Tipton Tournament on hold
Carl Albert baseball coach hoping the remainder of tournament can be completed before the end of the season.
With harsh weather bearing down on the area Saturday and a chance that teams would be traveling home as the weather came in, tournament officials for the Bill Tipton VIII decided not to squeeze any baseball games in before the rains.

Carl Albert coach Wayne Dozier said he hoped the tournament could be completed before the end of the season, and he was checking with the coaches involved to work out a solution.
The Titans were going to win their pool, while Yukon and Chickasha were set to face off for the right to play Carl Albert for the championship.
Carl Albert is 21-3 headed into Monday's game against Del City.
While Taylor Hawkins and Gavin LaValley have sparked the offense with big home run totals (combining for 29), Dozier said the consistency up and down the order has been the key.
“We were so inconsistent last year even though our record was pretty good overall,” he said. “This year, even the games we've lost, we felt like we've competed well. We worked on that early and talked about it. We're playing with a little bit more hustle and a little more intelligence.”
