The Little Axe cheerleaders are planning a spaghetti supper prior to the football scrimmage between Little Axe, Bridge Creek and Southeast at Little Axe on Thursday night.
The dinner will begin at 5 p.m., with proceeds going to the Bridge Creek football program. The team is still in the process of recovering from vandalism inside its fieldhouse that ruined or damaged thousands of dollars worth of equipment, electronics and other items.
Just getting on the field for practice has been a challenge over the last 10 days.
“We don’t have everything yet, but we have enough to get the kids out there without putting anybody in a 10-year-old helmet,” coach Greg Wallis said. “Cleanup is still continuing, but we just keep moving forward.”
On Saturday, Bridge Creek will host its annual Meet the Bobcats photo day at the field, which will include a live auction of a variety of things, like autographed memorabilia from OU players and other items.

EDMOND NORTH’S BACA AMONG AMATEURS IN OKLAHOMA OPEN
Edmond North sophomore Colter Baca shot 1 under par last weekend in the Oklahoma Golf Association Oklahoma Open Amateur Qualifying to seal one of 15 amateur spots in the field for this weekend’s event.
Baca, who is only 15 years old, is part of a very small group of Oklahoma high school players for the Oklahoma Open, which begins Friday at Oak Tree National in Edmond.
Baca’s 1-under-par round at Lincoln Park Golf Club was good enough for a tie for sixth place. Weatherford junior Quade Cummins and former SMU and Bixby standout Draegen Majors tied for first.
