The Oklahoman High School Athletes of the Week
Garrett McLaughlin, Heritage Hall
McLaughlin had three goals and an assist in the second-ranked Chargers’ last two matches to close the season with a perfect 13-0 record, heading into the playoffs as the No. 1 seed out of District 5A-1.
Kinsleigh Robb, Norman
After an 0-7 start, the Tigers earned a home-field playoff berth with Tuesday night’s 1-0 win over No. 12 Edmond Santa Fe, thanks to Robb’s second-half goal. The Norman girls will host McGuinness next Tuesday.
Jordan Reed, Edmond Memorial
Reed had a unique double-gold performance at last week’s Edmond Invitational at Edmond North. Reed won the 200 meter dash in a time of 22.05 and he won the discus with a throw of 157 feet, 11 inches.
Hailey Matthews, Kingfisher
Won eight gold medals in her last two meets, sweeping the 100- and 300-meter hurdle events, and helping Kingfisher’s 400 and 800 relay teams to wins as well. Her 300 hurdle time of 49.18 set a school record, and the Yellowjackets’ 800 relay time of 1:48.95 was a school record as well.
Ricky Ramirez, Deer Creek
Facing the possibility of finishing second in District 5A-1, the junior pitcher fired seven shutout innings in a 7-0 win against rival Guthrie, and he did it on the road. Ramirez allowed just two hits and struck out five to put the Antlers atop the district and in good position entering regionals.
Kaitlyn Milligan, Norman North
One of the top young golfers in the state fired an impressive round of 69 at Kickingbird Golf Club in Edmond on Tuesday to win the Class 6A West regional tournament by one stroke. The round earned Milligan a spot at next week’s state tournament.
Jordan Henry, Southmoore
Reached the 20-win mark with a No. 1 singles title at the Southmoore Invitational last Thursday. Emerging as one of the favorites at next week’s Class 6A state tournament, Henry is 21-1 on the season.
Rae Grellner, Okarche
Grellner was a force at the plate as the Warriors rolled through Carney and Cement in the district tournament last week for three wins. She drove in seven runs during the tournament, including four in a 13-3 win over Cement.
