Midwest City guards Cortrez and Cortrael Colbert signed letters of intent this week to play basketball at Central Oklahoma.
The 6-foot-2 brothers each averaged better than 15 points per game and were key players in coach Dewayne Bradley's intense defensive scheme that helped the Bombers to back-to-back appearances in the Class 6A state championship game.
Cortrez also had an offer from the University of Denver, but they wanted to stay together in college.
“That's something they were hoping to be able to do,” Bradley said. “UCO is probably the best Division II program in the area, and it's only 30 minutes from home, so everybody can still see them play. And UCO's style of play is a great fit for both of them.”
WEIGHT CHANGES TO OCCUR IN WRESTLING
The smallest weight class in wrestling will be 106 pounds, it was decided by the National Federation of State High School Association on Tuesday.
The weight limit will go into effect next season. The NFHS used data from a three-to-four-year period to help determine the new weight classes.
This is the biggest change in wrestling weights since 1988. Back then, the smallest weight class was moved from 98 to 103 pounds.
There will still be 14 weight classes. Here are the weights: 106, 113, 120, 126, 132, 138, 145, 152, 160, 170, 182, 195, 220, 285. The only weights not tinkered with were 145, 152, 160 and 285.
PURCELL'S KLIMEK BLAZES TO WIN
One of the names that had everyone buzzing at the Edmond North track meet last week was that of Brooke Klimek.
The Purcell distance runner nearly lapped the entire field in posting the best time of the year by any female in the state in the 3,200 meters.
Klimek finished the race in 11:08.67, with Norman's Megan Johnson coming in second at 11:44.54.
According to OHSTrack.com, Klimek posted the state's best time by a girl in the 3,200 by 11 seconds and the best by a Class 3A girl by 43 seconds.
SATTERTHWAITE STRONG IN EDMOND
With a pair of impressive wins at Edmond North last week, Norman's Tanner Satterthwaite made sure that no one is forgetting about him as the track postseason approaches.
Satterthwaite won both the 1,600 and 3,200 meter runs last week and has been among the state's best in the two distance events all season.
He won the 1,600 with a time of 4:35.79 and the 3,200 in 9:30.41, which is three seconds off his season-best mark of 9:27 that stands as the best in Class 6A this season.
OWASSO CLAIMS TOP SPOT
The Owasso baseball team jumped to the No. 1 spot of the top 25 rankings of Baseball America, released Tuesday.
The Rams, led by pitcher superstar Dylan Bundy, were No. 4 two weeks ago in the last rankings.
Broken Arrow dropped three spots from No. 5 to No. 8, following its loss to Edmond Santa Fe. No other Oklahoma teams are represented in the top 25.
Though Owasso is ranked No. 1 in the country, Broken Arrow is ranked No. 1 on OKRankings.com. The last rankings were released last week, so the Tigers will remain the No. 1 team.
