The girls game will tip off at 6:30 p.m., and the boys will follow at 8.

The rosters and coaches for the game will be announced at a later date.



Mount St. Mary is seeking a new volleyball coach after Kenneth Bethune stepped down recently.

The Rockets were routinely in the hunt for state tournament berths under Bethune, who is moving out of state and will not continue to coach volleyball.

A young, talented team, Mount St. Mary is expected to be a contender in Class 4A again next fall.



Former Oklahoma Sooner Wes Sims and track coach Dennis Seifried are among eight inductees into the Weatherford Athletic Hall of Fame next month.

Sims was an offensive lineman and track standout at Weatherford before becoming an All-Big 12 football player at OU.

He and Seifried, who has coached Weatherford to two state titles and four runner-up finishes in track, will be joined at the induction by the 1973 Weatherford state championship baseball team, late sports writer Thomas Lee and athletes Mike Sawatzky, Colby Miller, Clay Bruner, Mark Lumpkin, Chelly Belanger-Quinn and Tim Ray.

Sawatzky was an all-conference football player at OU. Miller was drafted as a pitcher by the Minnesota Twins out of high school and spent nine seasons in the team's minor league system.
