WAYNE READY FOR TEST
After defending Class A champion Wayne fell to Wynnewood in Week 9, it didn't take long for the Bulldogs to get refocused, quarterback Sam Martin said.
“We can't let one loss get in the way of our ultimate goal,” Martin said. “We're not overlooking any game from here on out and this is going to be a tough game this week.”
The No. 2 Bulldogs (10-1) take on No. 7 Kiefer (11-0) on the road Friday night.
Kiefer shut out its first four opponents and has allowed more than 16 points just once this season.
“They've got their motors running the whole game,” Martin said. “It doesn't seem like they ever take a play off. They're definitely a team that can give us fits.”
One thing Martin isn't worried about is how his team will react to going on the road.
“Our town is so supportive when things like this are happening, so we're going to have a great turnout,” he said. “It's just another game on the same 100 yards, under the same lights.”
YUKON SOFTBALL DUO TO SIGN
Here's one of those times when the printed word is extremely beneficial.
Yukon softball players Maddy Ellis and Madi Ellis will each be signing letters of intent with college programs this week.
Yukon reached the Class 6A semifinals last month with Maddy Ellis pitching and Madi Ellis catching.
Now, Maddy Ellis will continue her softball career at Arkansas Tech, a Division II program in Russellville, Ark. Madi Ellis will sign with Oklahoma State.
Both players were selected to the Oklahoma High School Fastpitch Softball Coaches Association All-State team.
