What’s on tap

Here are some high school events to watch in the Oklahoma City metro area this week:

Soccer

Northwest Classen at Piedmont

When: 5:30 p.m. Tuesday

Where: Piedmont High School

The story: Two crucial district battles, starting with the girls match, where Piedmont (7-2 overall, 4-0 district) hopes to stay in command of District 5A-2 with a tough schedule remaining. In the nightcap, the fourth-ranked Northwest Classen boys are looking for their sixth straight win, but Piedmont could move into the district lead with an upset.

Baseball

Deer Creek/Yukon Classic

When: Thursday-Saturday

Where: Deer Creek and Yukon High School

The story: A loaded tournament that features Red Oak, Norman North, Edmond North, Guthrie, Southmoore, Westmoore and the host teams, there aren’t many games that will disappoint. Red Oak, the smallest school in the tournament and perhaps most intriguing in the field, is one of the state’s top baseball programs and the Class B champion that past three years. The Eagles are currently No. 1 in the rankings with a 20-1 record.

Golf
