The Mid-State and Metro Athletic Conferences recently announced their boys basketball postseason awards, honoring Putnam City West’s Omega Harris and Midwest City’s Torey Noel as their top players.
Harris, who averaged nearly 20 points per game for the Class 6A runner-up Patriots, was named the conference MVP of the Metro Conference. Noel was the Mid-State MVP after averaging more than 15 points per game for the state semifinalist Bombers.
This was the last basketball season for the two conferences, which are set to be restructured as the Central Oklahoma Athletic Conference and the Oklahoma Big 10 Conference for next year.

It was Oklahoma’s first time since 1983 to participate in the event, which is know as the “Rose Bowl of Wrestling.” It was the worst loss for the WPIAL in the event’s history.

SOUTHMOORE TRIO PITCHES SHUTOUTS IN ARIZONA TOURNAMENT
After losing the opener of the Best of the West Tournament in Peoria, Ariz., earlier this week, Southmoore recovered in a big way with three straight shutouts to reach the finals of the tournament.
The SaberCats (5-3) fell short to Sunrise Mounton, 4-2, in the championship game, but coach Craig Troxell was pleased with his team’s showing.
Juniors Connor Gaughan, Blaze Schein and Austin Davis each threw shutouts against Arizona teams that either competed in or won the state tournament last season.
Southmoore beat Desert Mountain, Sunnyslope and Notre Dame Prep in that span.
The SaberCats next play Monday at Choctaw.
