The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association released the regional brackets for Class 6A and Class 5A softball on Tuesday, and one noticeable team is traveling instead of hosting.


Edmond North, the defending Class 6A champion, is traveling to Yukon despite finishing second in its district, which by rule would put the school as a host site.

But because of sanctions agreed to by the Edmond Public Schools after exceeding the games played limit last season, the Huskies cannot host regionals, OSSAA assistant director Amy Cassell said.

“They presented to us some options that they would like to see us put in play, and the board and the OSSAA approved those last year and allowed us to still play,” Edmond athletic director Mike Nunley said. “We did what we thought was the best option to be allowed to continue playing.”

Yukon, which finished third in District 6A-2, became the fourth host for regionals based on geographical location with Lawton.

The other three sites are Moore, Southmoore and Edmond Memorial.

In Class 5A, Deer Creek, Piedmont, Chickasha, Duncan, Claremore, Tahlequah, Carl Albert and Durant are all hosts.

The state tournament for Classes 6A, 5A and 4A is scheduled for Oct. 17-19 at The Ballfields at Firelake in Shawnee.
