High school notebook: OSSAA approves new football districts

by Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh Published: October 9, 2013

The Donkeys started the season with 25 players, but they have lost some players to injuries and others have quit. They have now just 13 active players if everybody is cleared to play, but at one point last week they were playing with just nine players.

First-year coach Lee Bluejacket told the board that he is concerned for his players' safety with the declining numbers. Bray-Doyle has already forfeited its game this week with Velma-Alma.

The Donkeys, who are slated to play in Class B next season already, will look to play against independent eight-man teams if they forfeit their regularly scheduled game.


The Santa Fe South boys cross country team joined the Norman North and Shawnee girls as team champions in the pre-state cross country meets held last weekend at Edmond Santa Fe.

Most impressively, Santa Fe South won the boys 4A meet despite having its top runner finish 13th overall, with Deangelo Robles clocking in at 18:11.86. Santa Fe South totaled 70 points with Plainvew second at 83.

Del City's Kadijah Almarales won the 5A girls overall title at 13:19.76, but it was Shawnee, led by fourth-place finisher Maddie Rutherford at 13:49.08 that took the team honors with 43 points. Pryor was second at 47.

Norman North's Abbey Mace was third overall in the 6A girls meet and her team had five of the top 15 finishers to compile 50 points, with Norman High second at 58.



Three young metro-area golfers will take part in the Junior All-Star Invitational being held Friday-Monday at Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club in Norman.

The event, which has players from all across the country, as well as China, Japan, South Korea, Mexico and South America, is only open to 48 boys and 25 girls.

Newcastle freshman Dalton Daniel is the only boy from Oklahoma in the field, while a pair of Norman residents will take part in the girls event.

Freshman Kaitlin Milligan and seventh-grader Yujeong Son will both compete in the four-day event.
