The Oklahoma City area's only large-school holiday tournament isn't likely to continue, according to sources in the Mid-Del school district.

The Mid-Del Holiday Invitational, co-hosted by Midwest City and Del City high schools, just completed a third successful year Saturday night, but isn't expected to come back for a fourth edition next December.

The tournament had been the only event for large-school teams in the metro area over the holiday break. It concluded with a large crowd Saturday night at Del City to watch a pair of top-10 matchups in the boys and girls championship games.

Broken Arrow defeated Midwest City in the girls title game and Midwest City edged Mustang for the boys crown.
