KINGFISHER RECALLS SCRIMMAGE VS. BLANCHARD
Kingfisher and Blanchard didn't play each other in the regular season, but the two teams meeting for the Class 3A state championship Friday night did face each other in a preseason scrimmage.
“Our kids remember what happened to us down there,” Kingfisher coach Jeff Myers said. “They got the best of us and they've gotten a lot better.
“They took care of a really good Jones team (in the 3A semifinal). It's an old foe and coach (Jeff) Craig does a great job. I respect him and his program. He's done a great job as far as turning it around. It's going to be a dogfight.”
DALE'S CLARK RECOVERS, TOP 1,000-POINT MARK
Dale senior forward Breck Clark had a hot start to the basketball season. After battling back from a staph infection that kept her production down, Clark has bounced back nicely.
She recently topped the 1,000-career points mark and scored 25 Tuesday night in a 46-32 win at Holdenville. The Lady Pirates held a 23-point lead in the game before the starters left.
“She struggled there for a bit but has really been playing well lately,” Dale coach Josh Forsythe said.
Clark scored 39 in a 58-43 win last Tuesday at Okarche to bounce back from a pair of nine-point performances. Clark is still averaging nearly 21 points per game.
Dale (7-0) hosts Bethel on Tuesday.
