Mustang nearly pulled off a sweep of the team titles at the Southmoore tennis tournament Thursday at Oklahoma City Tennis Center.
But the Broncos had to settle for a first-place tie with Ponca City in boys action, despite reaching every finals match in singles and doubles.
The Mustang girls won behind a pair of individual championships. Kyndal Heath won at No. 2 singles, while Taylor Underwood and Heather Sullivan came out on top in No. 2 doubles.
Southmoore’s Jordan Henry improved to 21-1 on the season with her championship at No. 1 singles. The Moore duo of Taylor Factor and Patricia Truong won No. 1 doubles.
Ponca City’s Blake and Daniel Langston swept Nos. 1 and 2 singles in boys action, while Mustang picked up the No. 2 doubles title with Tommy Ngo and Adam Nguyen. Westmoore’s Beau Lanier and Josh Noel won No. 1 doubles.
NEMECEK, PURCELL WIN THIRD STRAIGHT
Purcell sophomore golfer Ashton Nemecek picked up her third consecutive tournament victory, shooting an 80 earlier this week to win a Class 3A regional qualifier at Purcell.
Nemecek’s winning score of 80 also helped the Dragons to their third straight team title with regionals and state remaining on the schedule.

NEWCASTLE’S HAMILTON SIGNS WITH SEMINOLE STATE
Newcastle senior guard Sara Hamilton signed with Seminole State recently, making good on words from her late brother.
Hamilton played one day following the death of her brother Matthew early last season and made a 3-pointer in his honor as time expired. She said then he encouraged her to work hard to play college basketball in their final communication before his death in an auto accident.
Hamilton averaged 12.1 points per game for the Racers, shooting 45 percent overall and 34 percent from 3-point range.
