High schools: Sequoyah-Tahlequah 'in full compliance now'

New administrators and some new coaches are in place as the school tries to put behind it a previous leadership that, in the words of OSSAA executive director Ed Sheakley, “thought the rules didn't apply to Sequoyah-Tahlequah.”

Scott was suspended for one year after allowing 12 of his players to attend summer football camps that were paid for by the school, which is a violation of OSSAA rules. The violation resulted in nine forfeits, and cost Sequoyah-Tahlequah a spot in the playoffs in the 2012 season.

Scott is likely to be scheduled to appear at the next OSSAA board meeting in March.


Edmond Santa Fe and Shawnee will host the large-school baseball championship games, bringing them back to the Oklahoma City metro area for the first time in over a decade.

Class 2A-4A have been in Shawnee the last few years, but 5A and 6A have been held in the Tulsa area.

This spring, Shawnee will host Class 2A, 4A and 6A championships on May 11. The Class 3A and 5A finals will be played at Edmond Santa Fe.

Dolese Park, Deer Creek and Edmond Memorial will be used for quarterfinal and semifinal games.

In addition, the Class A and B championship games will be held at Dolese Park's Palmer Field. The OSSAA has tried to get the spring finals at the Bricktown Ballpark, which hosted the fall games last October. But availability of the field is more difficult to manage in May.


Oklahoma City Public Schools athletic director Keith Sinor was originally scheduled to present a new plan to the OSSAA regarding the U.S. Grant and Capitol Hill football teams possibly pursuing independence from the association for four seasons starting in 2014.

However, by mutual agreement, that presentation was tabled until the March meeting.
