BETHANY — Mount St. Mary learned from last season's heartache. After falling in the Class 4A quarterfinals to Perkins-Tryon last season in the first state tournament appearance in program history, the Rockets experienced a new high Thursday night.
Whitney Jones put back her own missed shot with 23.1 seconds left to give Deer Creek the lead, then made a steal at the other end to preserve the second-ranked Antlers' 42-40 victory over Collinsville.
Ariel Williams broke a tie with a steal and layup with 19.2 seconds left, then sank two free throws with 5.6 seconds remaining as Tulsa East Central survived in the first round of the Class 5A girls state tournament with a hard-fought 54-50 decision over Del City.
Heritage Hall’s Chris Hamilton II made two free throws with 10 seconds to go in a tie game, boosting the Small West squad to a 70-68 victory over the Small East at Oral Roberts’ Mabee Center Thursday night.
At 5-foot-4, Scheffler was the small but tenacious spark for the Antlers during their last two title runs. She was the unsung hero, and she got a chance to show why in Wednesday’s annual Oklahoma Coaches Association All-State game at Oral Roberts’ Mabee Center.
