Northwest Oklahoma travelblog: How I made it to Longdale
Berry Tramel | Jul 27, 2015[img width="" height="" style="" render="w620"]3746730[/img] NASCAR veterans Kenny Schrader and Kenny Wallace will compete Tuesday night at the Longdale Speedway, which is on Highway 58 in the northwest corner of Blaine County, between Fairview and Canton. Longdale Speedway runs International Motor Car Association series, and Wallace and Schrader are scheduled to compete against local drivers. And how I know all this is a good story. At least to me. You can learn a lot by getting in your car and getting out of town. A week ago Friday, I took a road trip to a section of Oklahoma I rarely see but always enjoy. The grandfather of our man Jacob Unruh died, and his funeral was in Cherokee, which is about 20 miles east of Alva. We call Jacob “Virgil” for reasons that are a mystery to me, but we think the world of Virgil and wanted to make sure he knew we were thinking of him. So three of us were able to break away to make the 21/2-hour drive to the service. High school editor Darla Smith, sports web editor Erik Horne and myself. We also gave a ride to Virgil’s wife, who is in nursing school, had some business in OKC that morning and needed a ride to meet her husband. So we launched off from Northwest Expressway and away we went. Out to Okarche and onto Highway 81 north through Kingfisher, Dover, Hennessey, Waukomis and Enid. Darla’s a life-long Yukon gal, so she’s been all over the state, but Erik the Red is from Louisiana and hadn’t been past Okarche. So we gave him an educated tour of that region and eventually gave all of us an educated tour of that region. I always build up Okarche and Kingfisher as my favorite small towns in Oklahoma. Okarche as my favorite tiny town — 2,000 or less population — and Kingfisher as my favorite small town. I just love their feel and their pride. Both are well-kept. Cool, old houses. Not a bunch of shabby homes and buildings falling down. Not every place is spit-shine, but no place, home or business, is a dump. At least from what you can see. A few months ago, I went through Davis, down in southern Oklahoma, and was reminded that Davis can give Kingfisher a run for best small town above 2,000 population, but still, Kingfisher is a cool place. And Erik was duly impressed. We built it up, and Kingfisher delivered. Dover has a better setting, with more trees lining the little town, but it’s run down. Hennessey is a solid town but isn’t quite as well maintained. Not much to Waukomis to maintain. Driving through Enid was fun. For such a big place — population in the 50,000 range — I rarely make it up there. We drove past the Plainsmen’s football field, where Lydell Carr and PJ Mills and Austin Box and Clint Chelf starred, and I should have driven Erik the Red over to the downtown area where Mark Price Arena sits. Enid has to have one of the most unique high school basketball coliseums in America. A civic auditorium, named after an NBA star. Enid’s a lot like Ponca City and Bartlesville, other northern Oklahoma towns that once were the headquarters of major oil companies. Phillips in Bartlesville, Conoco in Ponca, Champlin in Enid. All are big versions of Kingfisher. Well-kept. Lots of pride. Lots of history. Good places to live, if you don’t need a metropolitan city. Champlin was closed in 1984, and Enid has found its footing without a major anchor. The guys in the car made fun of me, because I drew a rough map of our trip. I hate following GPS, or even phone maps, because they don’t give you a big picture. I couldn’t find an old-fashioned road map, so I drew one before we left. Darla made fun of it, took a picture of it and put it on FaceBook. Dirty Rotten Scoundrel. Anyway, north of Enid, I had planned to turn west on Highway 45 and go through Carrier, where my pal Richard Mize recently pastored a Congregational Church, and Goltry and Helena, towns which formed a consolidated school. But I missed that turn, so we went on north and then west on U.S. 64. That took us through Jet and Nash, two more towns that long ago consolidated schools. Not much to Jet or Nash, but I remember from the ‘70s, looking at the scores of Jet-Nash and Helena-Goltry. Now, those two schools and four towns have consolidated into one school. The elementary school is in Jet, the high school is in Helena. It’s 20 miles from Nash to Helena, so that’s a fair drive. But it’s the truth of western Oklahoma. Diminishing population, schools trying to survive. My only knock on Timberlake is the name. Where’s the timber? There’s no timber in northwestern Oklahoma. The lake, I sort of get, since the Great Salt Plains Lake sits just north of Jet. But Timberlake is a good name for a school in Little Dixie or Green Country. How about Salt Plains High School? Or Big Sky High School? Oh well. Driving along U.S. 64, you see Great Salt Plains Lake off to the north. At least you think it’s the lake. It might be the shimmering selenite crystals that form part of the shoreline. The saline content is perhaps a quarter that of ocean water, and the crystals are unique to the area. Visitors dig for the crystals, and Oklahoma maintains a state park as part of the lake. It’s a little like Little Sahara, which is one county over from Alfalfa, in Woods County, between Woodward and Alva, and has magnificent sand dunes that attract motorcycle riders. Barren territory that suddenly draws people. Sand dunes, salt lakes. Oklahoma is an interesting place. Anyway, we drove on into Cherokee and found complete charm. Great small town. Some cool old houses. A good-sized grocery store. Some small businesses. A couple of neat churches. Alfalfa County courthouse. And way more trees than you’d expect in northwest Oklahoma. I seemed to remember that Cherokee had a downtown movie theater that famously burned some years ago. We found a storefront that seemed like it could have been the theater, but I couldn’t be sure. I forgot to ask anyone, and I couldn’t find anything on the Internet, so maybe I’m mixed up. Anyway, Cherokee was a great little town. The service at the First Baptist Church was nice. Virgil spoke about his grandfather and did a great job. A men’s quartet sang, and the four men produced beautiful harmony on both “How Great Thou Art” and “It Is Well With My Soul.” First off, you can’t miss with good material. Two of the top five songs of all-time, and I might be short-changing them. Add in quality voices, then touch it off with the endorsement of Jehovah himself, and it was riveting. I’m not kidding around. It started raining a little as we arrived in Cherokee, and it was raining pretty good when we got out of the car. During the service, it started storming. And I swear, when the quartet sang the first verse of “How Great Thou Art,” at the very point when they belted out “I hear the roaring thunder,” the skies boomed with thunder that shook everyone in the sanctuary, both physically and spiritually. It was the darndest thing. We paid our respects to Virgil, then headed out. I was determined to go home a different way, see more stuff, and it didn’t take us long. I went south out of Cherokee and hooked up with Highway 8. I wanted to go through Fairview, a decent-sized town that I had never visited. We went through Cleo Springs, not much there, but north of Fairview, we passed another Oklahoma jewel — Gloss Mountain. We saw in the distance, off to the west, some beautiful mesas. Didn’t know what they were but eventually found out. The Gloss Mountains, sometimes called the Glass Mountains, according to travelok.com, have a high selenite content that mimics a shiny glass exterior. There’s a state park at Gloss Mountain, with hiking trails, and spectacular scenery. Let me promise you. The landscape in northwestern Oklahoma is underrated. Now you know why they call it Fairview. I had never been to the Major County seat, which has a population of about 2,500. But Fairview had a good football program in the 1980s, and I sort of always followed the Yellowjackets. Plus, I had an extra reason for going. A few years ago, at Mike Gundy’s kickoff golf tournament in Stillwater, I ran into a guy I once knew. Todd Smith played football at Norman High, graduating in 1983, and went to OU on a football scholarship. I covered that 1982 Norman team, and I lost track of Todd after that. But there he was at Karsten Creek that day. Turns out he married a Fairview girl and was running his father-in-law’s car dealership in Fairview. The father-in-law was an OSU booster, so here was an ex-Sooner, at the Gundy Invitational. I enjoyed seeing Todd and told him I’d stop in if I ever was in Fairview. And so I was in Fairview. Todd runs Jensen’s Buick-GMC dealership. It’s a great old art deco building, with lots of vintage signs. Alas, Todd was not in the office, so I left him a note and we were on our way. Fairview seemed like a nice place. Not quite up to Kingfisher’s standards, I’d say, but livable. They’ve got a Sonic, a Pizza Hut and a Taco Mayo. Fairview probably is like much of western Oklahoma, in that it is reeling a little from the oil bust after the great oil boom that created a housing shortage. In Cherokee, we saw a sign for dorm-style lodging that could house 60 workers. But until the price of oil bounces back, that demand has weakened. Fairview actually has three car dealerships. Jensen’s Buick-GMC, Eischen’s Chevrolet (don’t know the relationship to the Okarche landmark) and Vinton Baker Ford. Any place with three new car dealers has something going for it. Leaving Fairview, I was going to go east on Highway 58, then jog back south to Okeene, because going south out of Fairview veered west and was out of the way. But before we turned around, I saw a mileage sign. Longdale 13. And my heart leaped. I swear. I try not to be too sentimental. But I got all fired up. Longdale is where my dad coached high school basketball in the 1950s. I had heard him talk about Longdale all my life, but I had never been there. I knew it was close to Canton, and I once thought about trying to go through Longdale on the way home from Colorado, but it was out of the way, and everybody was tired. So I told Darla and Erik the Red. We’re going to Longdale. Longdale High School is long since closed. I think in the ‘70s. The elementary school closed in 1991. My impression of Longdale was as a ghost town. That nobody and nothing would be there anymore. But I was wrong. Longdale still lives. It’s got a population just under 300, with a couple of gas station/convenience stores and quite a few houses. And the gymnasium still stands. The Longdale gym looks like an old WPA project — heck, it is an old WPA project, we found an inscription — but on the north end is painted a huge mural detailing the history of Longdale. The gym is locked up, but it was cool to walk around the place where my dad coached 60 years ago. We snapped a few pictures, then we were on our way. Seems like in the ‘70s, when I was a kid, some guys from Longdale that had played for my dad dropped by the house, the morning of an OU football game. My dad died in 2007; how I wish I had made the trip to Longdale with him. Anyway, back to NASCAR. As we left Longdale, there suddenly appeared a race track. Glittering. New. I’ve passed a bunch of Oklahoma dirt tracks, and none of them stood out like this. We were stunned. We had no idea what it could be or why it would be. But Darla looked it up on that FaceBook machine of hers, and there came the news. Longdale Speedway. Home of regular racing. Hosting Kenny Schrader and Kenny Wallace on July 28. Turns out, Longdale Speedway is thriving with local racers from all over zipping into town to race on most Saturday nights. Our adventure was mostly over. We drove down to Canton, hit Highway 51 and took it east through Okeene, which I had been to recently. I showed Darla and Erik the Red the great spires atop the St. Anthony Catholic Church. You can’t believe it. Looks like something you’d see in Italy. Then we drove south to Watonga, east back to Kingfisher and finally we were backtracking. We stopped in Okarche at the Popcorn Station, a popcorn store that sits on the north side of the road that runs through Okarche and separates Kingfisher and Canadian counties. Eischen’s Bar, home of the world’s greatest fried chicken, actually is in Canadian County. Then it was back down Highway 3, which becomes Northwest Expressway and the city that seems far removed in more than just miles from Cherokee and the Great Salt Plains Lake and art deco Buick dealership and the old gymnasium where my dad coached 60 years ago. Quite an adventure for a summer’s day.

Tulsa artist Matthew Bearden takes on American Indian mascot issue with painted helmet series
Brandy McDonnell | Jul 26, 2015[img width="" height="" style="" render="w620"]3746143[/img] An abbreviated version of this story appears in the Sunday Life section of The Oklahoman. Tulsa painter tackles issue of American Indian mascots with artistic helmet series Under the bright lights, a gleaming line of helmets showcase mascots and logos no team has ever worn -- and almost certainly, no team ever will. A portrait of the pope in his tall hat called a mitre. An American Indian warrior with the feathers of his war bonnet rendered instead as bullets and bombs. A white devil bearing a wide grin. “You still have the Red Devils, you got your Blue Devils, and now you got your White Devils,” said the artist, Matthew Bearden. “A little message behind it … but some of it is just fun.” A member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, Bearden is addressing the controversial issue of American Indian sports mascots through his latest project, a series of hand-painted helmets titled “Sacred Mascots.” The Tulsa painter most recently showed the painted helmets at Oklahoma City’s Red Earth Native American Cultural Festival, where he is a longtime exhibitor in the art market. “He’s one of the young guns, I would say. There’s a group of young artists here in Oklahoma that are making impressions throughout the country. And he’s one of the ones that’s kind of leading the way and making some statement art, and I think those helmets are a good example of what he’s done,” said Red Earth Deputy Director Eric Oesch. “Some of these young guys are kind of branching out and exploring more contemporary art … and that just goes to show that native art doesn’t have to be traditional native imagery.” [img width="" height="" style="" render="w620"]3746144[/img] Versatile artist Broad-shouldered and fair-skinned, the painter practically personifies the wisdom of the old adage “appearances can be deceiving.” Bearden said he’s aware he looks more like a jock than an artist and more like a “white guy” than an American Indian. But along with his Citizen Potawatomi heritage, he has Kickapoo, Menominee and Lakota Sioux ancestry, as well as an affinity for the Osage people that comes from growing up in Osage County, home of the Osage Nation. “When I was at Santa Fe (N.M.) at school everyone there thought I was an instructor. … Nobody thought I was a student because I was a white guy. It wasn’t reverse-discrimination. People were just surprised,” he said. “I don’t have to deal with the prejudices that my mother and her brothers had growing up.” Growing up in Hominy, he was devoted to sports, playing baseball, soccer, basketball and football and running track. He also enjoyed creating art from a young age and studied graphic design at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah before attending the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe. Apart from a few portraits of University of Oklahoma football players, he said his love of sports and art never really intersected before “Sacred Mascots.” “Now, I’ve actually written a graphic novel -- haven’t had time to draw it -- and it’s a football-based story. So there you go, it’s kind of coming out,” said Bearden, who spent much of the past winter working on a mural for Schlumberger Limited that chronicles the history of the oilfield services company’s Kellyville training center. “I’ve always painted all kinds of things.” His artwork ranges from to portraits, wildlife paintings and murals that aren’t overtly American Indian to both traditional and contemporary pieces that explicitly express his native heritage. At Oklahoma City’s Kasum Contemporary Fine Art, Bearden’s “The Poser” depicts an American Indian man in traditional dress against a bright pink and orange background reminiscent of Mark Rothko’s famed color-block paintings. His “30 Century Man,” featuring a man in a buffalo horn helmet wearing an elaborate gas mask, gives off a distinctively apocalyptic vibe. Bearden is the only American Indian artist represented at the Plaza District gallery, said Kasum Director and CEO Tony Morton. “I really, really like … the direction of where Matthew’s work is going. It started whenever he kind of left the static, traditional portraiture and started to become slightly surreal. I think he was playing with how to insert unexpected memes into his work,” said Morton, who is also Citizen Potawatomi. “One of the things that I really like about his work, especially in the portraiture, is that he’s kind of evolved the work so that he’s approaching the modern native as a modern person.” [img width="611" height="387" style="" render="w620"]3746145[/img] ‘Sacred Mascots’ Bearden’s “Sacred Mascots” series takes on the hot-button modern issue of American Indian sports mascots. A federal judge this month ordered the cancellation of the Washington Redskins’ federal trademark registrations. Although the NFL team’s president immediately vowed to appeal, it was a big decision in the 20-year battle over the team name, which many American Indian activists say is disparaging. In Oklahoma City, Capitol Hill High School is gearing up for its first year as the Red Wolves after the school board voted unanimously in December to ditch the Redskins moniker. Bearden said he was inspired to start his series of paintings on helmets last fall while trying to explain the native perspective on such mascots to his wife, Camden, who is not American Indian. “I said it would be like Notre Dame putting the pope on their helmet. … Notre Dame would never do that,” Bearden said. “Basically, he’s the chief and he wears a sacred hat and that’s kind of what you get when you start doing chiefs wearing bonnets. Those are religious objects that someone had to earn the right to wear. … You had to earn the right to wear a feather. So, I told my wife, ‘You know what, I’m gonna paint that on a helmet,’ so I did.” Titled “Cupo di Roma,” his helmet picturing the pope won a ribbon at last year’s Cherokee Art Market at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa, although the win was not without controversy. “I was approached by a Catholic … and he was a little upset. He went through the long history of the church helping native people, and I said, ‘Look, this is not a knock on Catholicism. It’s just an example, but if you are offended, then maybe you could understand why Native Americans might be,” Bearden said. “I’m not a huge activist but some of these things kind of touch my heart, so I’ll paint them.” Along many schools have ditched nicknames like Savages, Braves and Warriors to avoid offending, the artist acknowledged the issue isn’t that simple. The teams in his hometown are the Hominy Bucks. “Our mascot is an Osage Warrior, but if you tried to change the mascot, the Osage people would be strongly against that,” Bearden said, recalling the pushback a new coach got when he proposed covering the warrior logo on the basketball court. “Redskins, that’s not so good. But some of the mascots I think are done respectfully and are approved by whoever they’re supposed to represent.” [img width="386" height="490" style="" render="w620"]3746146[/img] Helmet messages Beyond the mascot issue -- his “White Devil” helmet is a comment on “Red Devils,” another team mascot that many activists consider offensive -- Bearden has used the unusual canvas helmets provide to pay homage to his heroes, have a bit of fun and make satirical comments on other social issues. His helmet titled “Grandpa Johnny Bruno” features a portrait of his maternal grandfather, who was a first-cousin of Jim Thorpe. Another depicts Patrick Swayze and a tube of Brylcreem, a tribute to the actor’s character from the film adaptation of the Tulsa novelist S.E. Hinton’s book “The Outsiders.” Painted bullet holes riddle a white helmet adorned with a pansy and a pistol. Along with doing commissions, Bearden is working on new paintings for this fall’s Indian Summer Festival in Bartlesville Cherokee Art Market at Hard Rock Tulsa as well as a 2016 state Capitol exhibit, where he hopes to unveil a planned portrait of Thorpe. Plus, he plans to continue painting on helmets. “I’ve got my garage full of helmets right now. I’m friends with a few football coaches here in the Tulsa area, and I’ve already loaded up on inventory. I’ve got a lot more ideas to do, and not all of them are tackling the mascot controversy,” he said. “It’s been pretty interesting, the response so far.” TO KNOW MORE To learn more about Matthew Bearden’s artwork, search for him on Facebook or email email@example.com.

OKWU inks CVHS grad for hoops
Mike Tupa, Associated Press | Jul 23, 2015In order to bolster his thin post rotation, Jason Jeschke didn’t have to look further than 15 miles to the south. The Oklahoma Wesleyan University women’s basketball coach revealed earlier this week he has brought former Caney Valley High School forward Philicia Ballew on board. “I think she can establish herself physically if she can kind of grasp our system and is ready to play,” Jeschke said about the 6-foot-tall incoming sophomore who spent last year at Coffeyville Community College. “We’re really excited to have her.” Ballew will need to earn her minutes with hard work and progress while filling in at the start for some back-up minutes, he added. “I knew she was wanting to come back to school here,” Caney Valley head coach Deric Longan said Wednesday. “That’s a good deal for her. … I would say she got to be a really smart defender for us. At times during the year she did run the floor well.” Ballew is one of two Lady Trojan players to move on to college basketball. She’s not the only prize Jeschke brought in during a fruitful recruiting season. Truth is, the Lady Eagles already have most the main-line components in place following last year’s record-breaking 27-7 season, including a first-year win in the NAIA national tournament. Even though Jeschke’s program bid good-bye to last year’s leading scorer, Nichole Tate (14.3 ppg, 6.4 rpg, 3.8 apg), he welcomes back four starters and some key reserves. Jeschke hoped to bring more quality point guards and post players into the mix. “Those are the two hardest things to find,” he explained. “I felt we brought in a couple of kids who could be good right away at point guard. … I put a premium on shooting the basketball and being versatile. I thought our staff did a great job of bringing in kids who are versatile and who can shoot.” Among his latter signees were Claremore-Sequoyah High School graduate Aubryana Matussak, incoming freshman Cassidy McNestey (Conway Springs, Ark.) and junior transfer Shelbie Kirby (Collinsville High School). Matussak brings a 5-foot-8 frame and plenty of dash and flash to the mix. “She’s got as much length and athleticism as you could want in a player,” said Jeschke. “She has a lot to learn. I’m very impressed the couple of times I’ve see her. … I don’t know if we’ll see that right away, but she’s somebody who could make a little splash as a freshman.” McNestey is a big (5-foot-8) guard who possesses a promising outside shooting touch. “I’m really excited to see what she can do,” Jeschke said. “We’ll see if she can play defense.” Kirby sparkled as a shooter at Northern Oklahoma College-Enid, Jeschke said, adding she was among the Region II junior college leaders. She helped NOC-Enid finish up last season with an 18-4 record in its last 22 games. Kirby hit 42 percent of her three pointers (18-of-43) and 87 percent of her free throws (27-of-31) while averaging 4.9 ppg for the Lady Jets. ——— ©2015 the Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise (Bartlesville, Okla.)

Recruits bolster Eagle hoop hopes for U-turn
Mike Tupa, Associated Press | Jul 22, 2015Regardless of the reasons, Mark Molder emphasized last year’s major downturn by the Oklahoma Wesleyan University men’s basketball team was strictly an anomaly. The Eagles struggled through a rebuilding, injury-plagued 7-23 season — their first single-digit win campaign in several years. Bolstered by a promising recruiting class — and his first-full year in charge of the program — Molder is looking for the Eagles to create a much-happier story during the 2015-16 campaign. “We’re going to be young again, but we really, really like the kids we brought in,” said Molder, who is a former OKWU player, assistant men’s basketball coach (during the national championship season of 2008-09) and head women’s basketball coach. “We felt if we got more athletic and faster and improved our ability to shoot, we would be vastly improved. That’s what we felt we’ve done.” Perhaps the Eagles’ signature acquisition is Chance Houston, a Dallas product (Woodrow Wilson High School), who is transferring to OKWU from Mt. View Community College. The 5-foot-11 point guard averaged 13.6 ppg while hitting 30.4 percent of his three-pointers and 81.4-percent of his free throws. “He was their Freshman of the Year and, at one point last year, was named the National Player of the Week,” said Molder. “He’s a really good pick-up for us.” Houston, who will be a sophomore, brings both speed and strong point guard skills, Molder added. The Eagle coaching staff also looked closer to home in signing freshman Cameron Williams, a 6-foot-4 forward from the state championship Tulsa Central High School team. “Those two are probably the biggest names, with the best accolades, we brought in,” Molder said. Among the Eagles’ prime returnees are C.J. Ross, who last year was named the Midlands Collegiate Athletic Conference Freshman of the Year, and Nikola Stjepanovic. Ross averaged 12.0 ppg and 6.6 rpg, while dishing out 61 assists in 30 games. Stjepanovic came in at 9.8 ppg and 4.9 rpg and posted a team-best 20 blocked shots, to go with 13 steals. He also knocked down 14 three-pointers and shot 46 percent from the field. “Both of them will be sophomores,” Molder noted. “They’re probably our two biggest names back. “ Molder and his staff also stacked the roster with several good athletes in the six-foot-three to six-foot-five area, Molder noted, including Devon Edwards (Enid), Shakur Martin (Killeen, Texas) and at least one other. Happy move In addition to retooling the team, Molder also is looking anxiously forward to a new era in OKWU history. Following more than 20 years in the MCAC, the Eagle athletic program will begin competition this year in the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference. The difference will be startling, Molder emphasized, particularly in travel time and expense. The longest roadtrip in the MCAC required 12 hours on the bus; the shortest jump was four hours. By comparison, the longest journey in the KCAC will be four hours away; one of the schools is only an hour-and-a-half away. “It’s quite a big impact,” Molder explained. “Spending 12 hours on a bus, staying in hotel rooms and eating road food is hard on a kid’s body and hard on a student-athlete as far as keeping up on classwork. It will be nice for the students being able to come home at a reasonable hour.” The other notable change is in scheduling. The KCAC has many more member schools, which means OKWU will be spending most the season playing conference games — 20, in all. Instead of the heavy dose in the past of non-conference contests, “you’ve now basically got to find 10 non-conference opponents and two or three classics,” Molder said. “It’s different from what we’re accustomed. It’s nice in a lot of ways, because you already have to many games scheduled for you.” But, OKWU won’t be abandoning some of its traditional MCAC rivals, particularly College of the Ozarks (Mo.) and Bellevue University (Neb.), Molder said. However, neither of those teams will be on this year’s slate, due to the confusion of the MCAC disbanding unexpectedly, which forced many former members to scramble to fill schedules. Another new twist for OKWU’s basketball teams will be beginning conference games in November, instead of in January, as happened in the MCAC. “We start conference this year prior to Thanksgiving, on Nov. 19,” Molder said. “It starts really quick.” Regardless of the new conference and all the changes it brings, the main focus for the Eagles is to bury the 2014-15 season in the graveyard of bad memories. “We’re looking forward to getting started,” said Molder. “We want put last year behind us and to get this thing where everyone wants it to be.” ——— ©2015 the Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise (Bartlesville, Okla.)

Tolin made mark at Sooner, Wichita State
Mike Tupa, Associated Press | Jul 15, 2015Tim Tolin is not surprised a member of the Tolin family is including in the Bartlesville Athletic Hall of Fame Class of 2015. The former Sooner High School icon just didn’t expect he would be the first one. “I was a little surprised,” he said about his reaction to the notice he had been selected for the honor. “I thought maybe they were calling me about me brother (Doug).” Not that Tim — who was a member of the first modern (1978-present) Wichita State baseball team and helped rev up the Shocker tradition as one of the nation’s premier diamond programs — isn’t happy to lead the way. “It’s just a tremendous honor to be included,” he said. “To be part of a handful picked every year is really a significant honor.” Even though Doug and Tim left a shining legacy in Sooner Spartan sports, they made their biggest impacts in athletics following their high school years. Doug went on to become a state championship winning high school basketball coach and then led Oklahoma Baptist University’s men’s hoops team to the 2010 NAIA Division I national crown. As mentioned, Tim helped open a new era in college baseball when, in 1978, he helped get the new Wichita State baseball team off the ground. If not for serendipity, Tim Tolin might have ended up at the University of Oklahoma. While he was still in high school, the Sooners had began recruiting Tolin, a standout on both the prep diamond for the Doenges Ford Injuns in the Bartlesville American Legion program. In Tolin’s mind, Norman seemed to be the center of his college destiny. But, then the Oklahoma assistant coach, Gene Stephenson, who had been recruiting him for the Sooners, got the job as the coach for the new Wichita State team; Wichita State hadn’t had a baseball team since 1970. “He said, ‘You can come up here and play,’” Tolin recalled. To make the offer sweeter, Stephenson offered Tolin a full scholarship. Oklahoma, meanwhile, made no scholarship guarantee, Tolin said. “They had to wait for the draft and how many scholarship players they had coming back,” he said. So, Tolin went across state lines and spent four years, as a player, and another as a graduate assistant, in Shockerland. “My junior and senior year, we made it to the NCAA tourney,” he recalled. “We didn’t win a (World Series) game my junior year, but my senior year we won a game. After my last year of baseball, I had 10 hours left to graduate so I stayed up there, in 1982, as a graduate assistant. That was a great team with a great pitching staff. We made it back to the World Series and came in second, Miami beat us in the finals. To get there that quick, within five years after the program starter, to come that close was special.” Tolin’s baseball dreams of playing for pay, meanwhile, took a painful turn. “During my junior year, I was hitting second most the time and was having a really good year,” he said. “Then, I dove for a ball in leftfield and broke my finger. I had to sit out for six weeks. I felt if I could have kept playing I could have been drafted.” During the off-season, Tolin played in an elite league in Hutchison, Kan., to get ready for his senior campaign. Then, fate tweaked his nose — and his heart — again. “It was the same sort of deal,” he said. “We started out at Arizona State in February. I got picked off at first base and slid into second and jammed my thumb. Again I had to sit out a couple of weeks. I didn’t get drafted.” After college, Tolin and his wife moved to the Tulsa area, where he’s remained and worked primarily in the banking industry. But, he still has family — and strong emotional — ties to Bartlesville, where he was born and bred. He didn’t have to look further than the other side of the dinner table for his first sports idol. “He (Doug) was kind of always my hero growing up,” said Tim. “My senior year, he was my assistant basketball and assistant baseball coach at Sooner. He had helped coach one of my PONY League teams. I respected him.” Tolin also earned the respect of those who followed Sooner High sports. He was a man for all seasons — football in the autumn, basketball in the winter, school ball in the spring and Legion ball in the summer. “I really grew up liking basketball,” he admitted. “I played point guard.” During his senior high school year in basketball, Tolin was coached by his brother Doug and another future college coaching standout, Joe Holladay — who also is a member of the Bartlesville Athletic Hall of Fame. The Spartan hoops team earned a spot that season (1976-77) in the state tournament and defeated Oklahoma City Northeast in the quarterfinals. Tolin had played free safety and receiver for the Sooner football squad, which finished 6-4 his senior year. “I wanted to play quarterback, but they wouldn’t let me,” he said with a good-natured chuckle. He enjoyed his best success in baseball, in which he played multiple positions. While the Spartan diamond squad didn’t carve out a large measure of success, Tolin played during one of the strongest eras of Bartlesville American Legion competitiveness, with Tug Baughn as the manager. Tolin actually played one year for legendary Injuns’ head coach Al Solenberger and assistant Vic Bagniski, before finishing up his final years of Legion ball with Baughn. In 1976, Baughn guided the Injuns to the Oklahoma state championship. “I could hit for pretty good average,” Tolin said about his time in high school/Legion ball. He is among the all-time Doenges Ford leaders for runs scored (76) in a season, doubles (17) in a season, and home runs (8) in a season. He finished his Legion ball career in 1977. In 1978, he batting .306, as a freshman, at Wichita state, belted four homers, drove in 25 runs and fashioned a .468 slugging percentage while appearing in 57 games. He also stole 12 bases in 14 attempts. He upped his average to .393 in 1979, while playing in 56 games racking up 33 RBIs, stealing 18-of-21 bases and striking out about only once every nine at-bats. He batted .352 and .333 his final two years, respectively. Now, 34 years after he put down his bat and stored away his college cleats, Tolin will relive for one evening those moments of his youth and share them with family and friends — even if he didn’t expect it to be this soon. ——— ©2015 the Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise (Bartlesville, Okla.)

Huskies hire college coach for hoops
Mike Erwin, Associated Press | Jul 15, 2015PAWHUSKA — Former Haskell Indian Nations University head coach Chad Kills Crow will be returning home to lead the boys’ basketball program of the Pawhuska High School Huskies. Kills Crow, who graduated from PHS in the early 1990s, was approved for the position Monday by a unanimous vote of the Pawhuska Board of Education. His hiring fills another key position in the local athletic department following spring resignations by seven district coaches. Board members approved the hiring of Kills Crow as high school head coach and to teach health/physical education. However, they tabled a decision on a portion of the proposed contract which indicated Kills Crow would also be coaching junior high-level teams, as discussions continued regarding coaching assignments. Earlier in the meeting, PHS Athletic Director Joe Sindelar told the board that rebuilding of the local athletic department has not yet been completed, as planned. Sindelar — who also is the high school principal and head football coach — said some coaches will have multiple responsibilities over teams at both the high school and junior high levels. He explained that an outdated “template” being used for the reorganization process has resulted in some assignments not being shown on lists provided to the board. Kill’s Crow coached men’s basketball at Haskell from 2009 until earlier this year, although his road to college coaching included high school coaching stops in Oklahoma and Colorado. After serving two seasons as an HINU assistant, Kills Crow became head coach of the Indians in August 2010. Competing in the Midlands Collegiate Athletic Conference (MCAC) against NAIA schools from Kansas, Nebraska, Arkansas, Missouri and Oklahoma (including Oklahoma Wesleyan University of Bartlesville), his Indians’ teams won 40 games while losing 108. HINU is an institution in Lawrence, Kan., which has historically provided higher-learning opportunities for Native Americans. Kills Crow is of Lenape (Delaware) descent, in addition to being an enrolled member of the Oglala Lakota tribe. He has stated that he considered it an honor to coach at Haskell, where he had played in 1994-95 prior to returning to Oklahoma to resume his college career in Tahlequah. Northeastern (Okla.) State is where Kills Crow’s playing days ended and his coaching career started. He went on to graduate from NSU with a Bachelor of Science degree in Health and Human Performance. In 2010, Kills Crow earned a Master of Arts Degree in Education. ——— ©2015 the Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise (Bartlesville, Okla.)

BSC works on bid to GAC
Mike Tupa, Associated Press | Jul 8, 2015With only one year remaining on the agreement to host the Great American Conference college basketball championship tournament, the Bartlesville Sports Commission is putting together a new bid, BSC Chairman Bob Pomeroy said Tuesday evening. “It’s coming back (to Bartlesville) in 2016,” Pomeroy explained. “After that, it’s up in the air. We’re working on our bid for that and hopefully we’ll have some success.” Bartlesville has been home to the GAC tourney — which determines with men’s and women’s teams advance to their respective NCAA-II regional tournaments — since the conference began athletic competition in the 2011-2012 school year. Bartlesville initially achieved a two-year agreement, for the 2012 and 2013 tournaments, which was extended to 2014. Last summer, the GAC awarded the BSC with another two-year deal, for 2015 and 2016. During the next bid process, “we’re going to ask for a three-year commitment,” said Pomeroy. “Other than that, I don’t see much changing in our bid. We pay them a given amount and we get receipts from tickets and we’ll get some sponsorships.” Pomeroy said he wouldn’t be surprised it Hot Springs, Ark., also again submits a bid. But, circumstances appear to be enhancing Bartlesville’s attractiveness as a true neutral site for the conference, which consists of six Arkansas member institutions and five member Oklahoma schools, with another Oklahoma university (Oklahoma Baptist) set to come on line in the next couple of years with the GAC, Pomeroy noted. The Arkansas schools include Arkansas-Monticello, Arkansas Tech, Harding, Henderson State, Ouachita Baptist and Southern Arkansas. Oklahoma schools fully integrated into GAC athletic competition include East Central, Southeastern Oklahoma State, Southwestern Oklahoma State, Southern Nazarene and Northwestern Oklahoma State. OBU is a provisional member of the GAC, which means it will have to undergo a probation period the next two years prior to being allowed to play for conference championships. Pomeroy said he believes Bartlesville has built a good rapport with GAC schools as the basketball tourney host site. “I think most the schools really like coming to Bartlesville,” he said. “I knew we’ve got the support of a number of Arkansas schools, and I’ve got to think Oklahoma schools will support us. As long as we produce a competitive bid, I’ve got to think we’ve got a good chance of keep the tournament here.” Another factor in Bartlesville’s favor is the infusion of two former Bartlesville High School student-athletes into GAC basketball programs, Pomeroy said. Nick Shoemaker (Class of 2014) will be beginning his redshirt freshman year with the Southwestern Oklahoma State men’s hoops team; Hailey Tucker (Class of 2015) is headed to the Southwestern Oklahoma State women’s basketball squad. “When those two teams play, that will fill the (Bruin Fieldhouse) gym next March,” Pomeroy noted. Other BSC activities The BSC also is putting on this week’s AABC Sandy Koufax 14-and-under World Series qualifier tournament, and the actual Koufax World Series, to be held later in July. In addition, the 2015 Bartlesville Athletic Hall of Fame Induction Celebration — another BSC endeavor — is planned for November. “We have another great induction class coming in,” said Pomeroy. “We’re starting to make our videos of the inductees.” The BSC also is looking to put on a celebrity golf tournament as a major fundraiser. “There’s a lot going on with the Bartlesville Sports Commission,” Pomeroy said. ——— ©2015 the Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise (Bartlesville, Okla.)

OKWU set Saturday to host 20th Indian All-State tilts
Mike Tupa, Associated Press | Jun 19, 2015Some people just talk about the challenges of helping to develop the next generation of leaders. Others do something about it. Dr. Carol Nice Conner and Dr. Joe L. Conner are definitely doers. From a bull session two decades ago with a close friend about the lower-than-average high school graduation rates among Indian students in Oklahoma blossomed the concept of an annual all-star basketball game for Native American senior graduates. On Saturday, the 20th edition of the Indian All-State Basketball Games will take place in Bartlesville, at the Oklahoma Wesleyan University Mueller Sports Center. There will be a North vs. South format for both the girls and the boys teams. The first contest is set to begin at 6 p.m.; admission is $6. Dr. Joe Conner — who is an Osage — said the conversation that served as the catalyst for the event revolved around the reality that a relatively few number of Indians went on to play at the college or pro basketball level. He and his friend — both of who had played hoops in college — wondered what had happened to some of the superior Indian athletes they had competed against. The discussion then turned to action, with the creation of the Indian All-State Game concept, sponsored by Paradox Consulting, LLC, owned by the Conners. “We said let’s try to find some way to encourage Indian kids to, number one, finish high school, and number two, to go to college. Dr. Joe Conner said the games have had that direct effect on some of the All-State selectees, who otherwise might not have graduated from high school. He recalled that during some years, after the All-State rosters came out in April, communications with the players indicated they were excited about playing in the game, but that they weren’t planning to graduate. He and his wife informed them graduation was a must in order to participate. “We’ve probably had a half dozen of those over the years,” said Dr. Joe Conner, noting that every one of the players dug in to be ready to graduate. “We nudged them that way,” he said. “Once we get them in our workshop Saturday morning, we get them with college recruiters.” Another purpose of the games is to expose scouts to some of the talented players in the smaller schools throughout the state. Some recruiters attend the games, he added. Almost synonymous with the All-State games is Oklahoma Wesleyan University as the host site. OKWU has been home for more than a decade to the games. “It’s been a nice venue,” said Dr. Joe Conner. “We would like to keep doing it there as long as we can.” He credited OKWU employee Peggy Mills for building the bridge between the games and the school. “We met with Peggy Mills and she just jumped in and said ‘This was great,’” Dr. Joe Conner recalled. “Thanks to her efforts and lots of other people, it happened. … She’s been kind of the linchpin. … She just covered a lot of bases and made our life easy.” Dr. Conner added the OKWU setting “is beautiful … and the athletic department chips in every year and helps.” OKWU drew direct benefit from its participation when former Indian All-Stater Davia Seay decided — after playing in the 2004 girls game at OKWU — to play for the Lady Eagles. All-Staters are selected by nomination of their coaches. Those who possess a U.S. Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood card are eligible. After the nominations are gathered, the decision on who makes All-State is based on basketball accomplishments, how they fit into a balanced All-State team and scholastic and extra-curricular activities. From that process, 48 athletes — 24 boys and 24 girls — are chosen either First Team or Second Team All-State. Only First-Team members are invited to play in the games. In the girls games, the North has a 15-4 record; the North owns a slim 10-9 margin in the boys games. Following is a list of this year’s game rosters. First Team Girls North (Coach Richard Bassett, Grove) Karen Bassett (Grove), Taci Owens (Ketchum), Lauren Billie (Tulsa East Central), Whitney Lindsey (Mason), Raylee Conner (Woodland-Fairfax), Erin Riley (Stroud), Libby Morris (Grove), Kylie Looney (Adair), Kayla Reynolds (Clinton), Baylee Tanner (Jay), Madison Davis (Locust Grove), Jhonett Cookson (Tahlequah-Sequoyah). South (Tara Satterfield, Quinton) Starlah Cully (Hanna), Lainey Hall (Wetumka), Brooke Roberts (Indiahoma), Cynda Factor (Sasakwa), Hanna Gouge (Henryetta), Timmea Sampson (Riverside Indian School), Hannah Goines (Panama), Shelby Brennan (Quinton), Olivia Howard (Wilson), Brandi Rinaldi (Indiahoma), Tierra Brumfield (Arkoma), Kacie Pahcoddy (Apache). First Team Boys North (Coach Jay Herrin, Tahlequah-Sequoyah) Nicholas James (Agra), William Leach (Tahlequah-Sequoyah), J.K. Hadlock (Glenco), Tanner Mouse (Ketchum), George Fields (Hominy), Chase Littlejohn (Stilwell), Peyton Pratt (Sperry), Zach Parish (Tahlequah-Sequoyah), Josh Limes (Bishop Kelly), Robert Ross (Pryor), Andrew Essary (Stilwell), Dalton Cunningham (Ft. Gibson). South (Coach Jonathan Hurt (Vanoss) Justin Rose (Smithville), Jaylen Johnson (Anadarko), Dineh Bohan (Byng-Ada), Blake Cooper (Vanoss), Denver Coffee (Vian), Jacob Birdshead (Byng-Ada), Taron Carter (Dale), Bronson Burns (Rock Creek), Chase Shearwood (Canadian), William Wall (Wapanucka), Elijah Crosthwait (Washington), Jake McAfee (Lexington). ——— ©2015 the Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise (Bartlesville, Okla.)

BHS coach analyzes impact of new college hoop rules
Mike Tupa, Associated Press | Jun 11, 2015From 2004 through 2008, Clent Stewart started 95 of 121 men’s basketball games at Kansas State, accumulated 696 career points (5.8 ppg) and assaulted the nets from long distance, knocking down more than 35 percent (111-of-316) of his three pointers. Needless to say that Stewart — who is on preparing for his second years as Bartlesville High School heads boys basketball coach — understands the college game. On Wednesday, he offered his opinion about some of the eye-raising rule changes approved Monday by the NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel. The new standards go into effect for the 2015-16 college campaign. Among the modifications will be to drop the shot clock from 35 to 30 seconds, limiting teams to four timeouts instead of five (with a maximum of three timeouts the second half), increasing by a foot the restricted-area arc in front of the basket, eliminating the five-second, closely-guarded rule while dribbling the ball, allowing video consultation for the entire game by officials on potential shot clock violations and allowing officials to use replay to check for fake (flop) fouls. “I definitely like it,” Stewart said about the decreasing by five seconds the shot clock. “I think it speeds up the game a little bit.” In addition, the shorter time allowed per possession will help better prepare those players who advance to the NBA, Stewart said. “It will make it (the game) faster,” he continued. “It will make higher scoring games. It will definitely make the players play faster and get into their offenses quicker, and hopefully … make the game more exciting.” The next changes for college also will make NCAA game officials a more attractive fit for the NBA. The entire impact of the new changes appears to streamline the college game, he summarized. ——— ©2015 the Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise (Bartlesville, Okla.)

OKWU coach reloads
Mike Tupa, Associated Press | Jun 7, 2015Still feeling the glow of a record-setting season last winter, Oklahoma Wesleyan University head women’s basketball coach Jason Jeschke welcomes back eight of his top 11 players for the upcoming campaign. With so much talent returning, Jeschke’s path along the recruiting trail has been more focused on specific needs. “We were looking to add some shooting,” said Jeschke, who guided the Lady Eagles to two school records in the 2014-15 wars — 27 wins (27-6) and a first-ever appearance in the NAIA Division II Sweet 16. “We were kind of looking to bring in a point guard, with Courtney Backward and Yessenia Hernandez to be seniors next year, someone to get underneath their wing, to share time with them.” As always, the Lady Eagles also beat the prospect bushes for the best new big girls they could find. “I think we added a lot of depth,” said Jeschke. One of the potential prime-time signees could be incoming freshman point guard Grace Pospichal, who graduated from Hebron High School (Dallas, Texas). “She has the chance to be a very good player,” said Jeschke. “She had multiple NCAA Division II offers, but she decided to come to Oklahoma Wesleyan. … She could be a dynamic player.” Former Mid-America Christian University player Cheyenne Been (Dewar High School) transferred this past year to OKWU and has three years of eligibility left. Been — who also played softball at MACU — averaged double-digit scoring as a freshman basketball player for the Lady Evangels. “She has a chance to be one of the best shooters in the league (with OKWU), if not in the country,” Jeschke said. “When she’s on, she can fill it up.” Jeschke also has brought on board two more freshmen that could play a pivotal role next year. Other than trying to bring a couple of tall players on board, he said the recruiting for next season may be wrapped up. The Lady Eagles return almost all their key components from last year’s historic run. The three seniors in last year’s main rotation included multiple-year starter Nichole Tate and key reserves Kelsey Jones and Shelby Graham. “We return four starters. … It’s pretty exciting,” Jeschke said. Jeschke is equally excited about OKWU’s assimilation next year into the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference, in which he coached for a few years as an assistant prior to moving last year to Bartlesville to coach OKWU. “It (the KCAC) is one of the most well-coached and competitive conferences in the country,” Jeschke emphasized. “It cuts down on our travel and it is a conference that is legitimate, highly organized, well run and well managed. The level of basketball on the men’s and women’s side is exciting. It’s really a good league. OKWU is perfect fit.” ——— ©2015 the Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise (Bartlesville, Okla.)

Versatile CV player bound for Avila
Mike Tupa, Associated Press | May 17, 2015During her four years in Caney Valley High School girls basketball, Kolby McIntosh completely redefined her role. Her adaptability — and unconquerable, fearless approach to competition — elevated to her a prime spot in Lady Trojan hoops history. McIntosh has become both the first All-Stater and first girl to sign a college basketball scholarship during head coach Deric Longan’s six-year tenure as Caney Valley head coach. McIntosh’s next stop — after she collects her diploma and enjoys a few weeks of summer vacation — will be Avila University (Kansas City, Mo.). In fact, McIntosh’s new head coach-to-be Larry Williams made the long trip from Kansas City to witness McIntosh’s letter-of-intent signing. At approximately six feet — and with extensive experience at both power forward and point guard — McIntosh has a lot to offer her college hoops program, Caney Valley head coach Deric Longan said Saturday. “With her height, she could play inside some, but she’s going to be a tough guard on the perimeter as she proved this past season. … She can use her height to her advantage.” As for the “other” reason to go to college — i.e., an education — McIntosh knows exactly what she wants. “I liked them for just the fact they’re a smaller school and they had the degree I wanted,” said McIntosh, who planning on eventually attending medical school. “That was my biggest thing, my degree and the fact the program was what I was looking for.” When it comes to her yearnings toward medicine, McIntosh proved the past four years she could operate smoothly against just about any defense thrown her way. McIntosh never hesitated taking the ball the to the hole when she thought she might be able to produce a mismatch, but she also displayed a deft passing touch in short space, particularly to the two primary centers she played with at Caney Valley — Philicia Ballew and Skylar Ward. McIntosh also proved to be a versatile weapon — both physically and mentally. After laboring her first two seasons as a power forward, Longan decided to move McIntosh to the point for her junior season. “It wasn’t that she was the best ballhandler we ever had,” he explained. “It was her competitiveness. Her game changed from her freshman year to her sophomore year and she saw the floor so well. She knew where she needed to be on the floor.” McIntosh accepted the major change with characteristic optimism and determination. “My A.A.U. coach and Coach Longan helped me transition into that role,” McIntosh explained. “I spent three hours every day in the gym the summer before my junior year working on my ballhandling and skills. In A.A.U. (the Oklahoma Magic) I was put on the wing. I had some help.” But, McIntosh did most the preparation on her own, Longan said. Her most outstanding trait would be “her work ethic,” he explained. “Her ability to spend countless hours in a gym, with a coach or by herself. That’s what separates her from most the girls. … She’s always had a ball in her hands.” Even though McIntosh put together some outstanding numbers her senior season, she points to the team’s success — a 16-9 record (after a 1-4 start) and a postseason run to the area playoffs — as the highlight. “I was most pleased with the fact that in my senior year it was the first time ever to make it past the regionals and to get into area,” she said. Following the rugged season start, the Lady Trojans found their traction by “believing in each other, figuring out what each other’s strength was,” McIntosh explained. “I think we figured each other out more.” McIntosh’s biggest regret about moving on to college is the separation from her teammates. “I’ve been with half of them since seventh grade,” she said. “It’s hard to leave them behind, knowing they’ve been behind me all the time.” McIntosh also sees the team concept as an integral part of the athletic experience. “Success is someone who is willing to put themselves on the line for the team,” she said. McIntosh will bring that same attitude with her when she joins the Avila program, which will be looking to turn around after an 8-19 record last season. ——— ©2015 the Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise (Bartlesville, Okla.)

The offer is the biggest so far for the 6-foot-3, 190-pound Terry Wilson, who also has offers from Indiana, Houston, Memphis and four other programs. Colorado is also showing strong interest recently.
High school notebook: Del City quarterback Terry Wilson gets Nebraska offer
BY SCOTT WRIGHT, JACOB UNRUH AND STAFF REPORTS | Apr 21, 2015Nebraska’s once-strong recruiting of Oklahoma high school football players had faded in the last decade. Since signing Phillip Dillard of Jenks and Craig Roark of Ada in 2005, the Cornhuskers hadn’t landed an Oklahoma prospect until stealing Lawton offensive lineman Jalin Barnett in February. But the Huskers’ new coaching staff under Mike Riley is looking hard at the Sooner State. Nebraska offered a scholarship to Del City junior quarterback Terry Wilson on Tuesday morning, Wilson announced on Twitter. The offer is the biggest so far for the 6-foot-3, 190-pound Wilson, who also has offers from Indiana, Houston, Memphis and four other programs. Colorado is also showing strong interest recently. Nebraska has also offered Lone Grove running back Jeremy Lewis, adding to a list that includes Tulsa, Ohio and Texas State. The Huskers are also looking at a pair of the state’s junior-college prospects, with offers out to the Northeastern Oklahoma A&M duo of Maurice Chandler, a Lawton High product, and Chris Baccus, originally from Beggs. LEXINGTON’S BROWN GATHERING OFFERS Lexington offensive lineman Tyler Brown's recruiting is gaining momentum quickly. Tulsa extended a scholarship offer to the 6-foot-6, 315-pound junior on Tuesday, just days after he got his first offer from North Texas. Oklahoma and Texas Tech are among the programs also showing interest in Brown recently. FORMER DEER CREEK COACH SMITH TAKES OVER VICTORY CHRISTIAN Ron Smith didn’t expect to be a high school head football coach again when he stepped down from that position four years ago at Bartlesville. But on Monday, Victory Christian announced that Smith would be its head football coach. Smith has been an assistant the past four years at the Class 3A school, which is 29-5 over the past three seasons. Smith, 60, has a head coaching record of 93-64. He was an assistant coach for 17 years at Midwest City, working with offenses that included the Gundy brothers, Mike and Cale. He was the head coach at Deer Creek from 1997-2000, winning the 2000 Class 3A title with his son, Paul Smith, at quarterback. He also was a head coach at Owasso (2001-05) and Bartlesville (2006-10). Smith is replacing Brent Marley, who was hired as the head coach at Rejoice Christian earlier this month. ZANGARI’S HOT BAT SPARKS CARL ALBERT Carl Albert senior catcher Corey Zangari had a huge week at the plate as the Titans went 4-1. He went 11-for-17, hitting five home runs, a triple and driving in 16 runs. He had a monster game against El Reno with three home runs in the 15-6 win. Zangari is now hitting .479 with 12 homers and 42 RBIs on the year. He has signed with Oklahoma State but is considered the top draft prospect in the state. TUTTLE’S LESTER PICKS OBU The Oklahoman’s Little All-City Boys Basketball Player of the Year, Tuttle guard Tyler Lester, has chosen Oklahoma Baptist to continue his college career. Lester, a 5-foot-11 senior, led Tuttle to its first state tournament appearance, averaging 18.5 points and 3.2 assists per game while hitting more than 51 percent of his 3-point attempts (113-of-219). “He’s the son of a coach and has a great feel for the game,” Tuttle coach Paul Meuser said. “His father, Brian, has done a great job with our girls, and he’s had a great impact on Tyler. “I never saw Tyler take a bad shot in the two years I coached him. There was never a moment when I was sitting on the bench thinking, ‘What are you doing Tyler?’ He’s a smart player and a great leader.”

Streets has followed sports dreams
Mike Tupa, Associated Press | Apr 16, 2015In some ways, 33 years ago seems like a day. It likely will feel like that next November, when Viki Streets steps up to the podium to accept induction into the Bartlesville Hall of Fame, as part of the illustrious class of 2015. Also slated to be enshrined that evening are former Sooner High School three-sport standout Tim Tolin, former Bartlesville Public Schools Athletic/Physical Education Director Paul Geymann, the 1966 College High School Girls swim team and the Blazer Softball Organization. Bartlesville Sports Commission board member Tim Bart — who headed the hall of fame selection committee — announced last month the slate of honorees that will enter the BAHOF. Back in January 1982 — the last year of Sooner High ‘s existence — Streets made her immense presence felt on the basketball court. During a 52-50 overtime squeaker win against Tahlequah, Streets nailed the game-winning bucket and finished with 29 points. A couple of games later, Streets pumped in 19 points to energize Sooner past crosstown rival College High School, 58-44. She also played a major role — along with Cindy Cooper and Tracy Bunge — in helping elevate the Sooner Lady Spartan softball team to an elite status in Oklahoma, culminating by winning the state crown in the fall of1980, during Streets’ junior year. Streets becomes the third member of that 1980 state championship team — along with previous inductees Cooper and Bunge — to be voted into the BAHOF. The entire 1980 Lady Spartan softball team was inducted in 2012. “The biggest reward for me was that our team got the accolades first,” Streets said during a phone interview earlier this week. “I always wanted to be the best player out, and I’m sure Cindy wanted to be the best and Tracy wanted to be the best, but you don’t do it without everybody else.” Streets has never been far from the blue-collar grind of sports since her explosive exploits in the Bruin Fieldhouse and on the Blazer/Sooner softball diamond. After finishing up at Sooner, Streets made three stops — and played two major sports — during her nomadic college career. She started out at Oral Roberts, to play basketball, and then transferred to play basketball Santa Fe Community College in Gainesville, Fla. “We had a very good team,” said Streets. “We finished sixth in the nation.” The University of Oklahoma then re-recruited Streets. “Oklahoma really pursued me,” she said. “Back then they had 15 scholarships instead of 12. … We had several junior college players.” Streets — who stood only 5-foot-6 — proved to be one of the most gigantic additions. During her junior season (1984-85) she dished out 15 assists against Colorado — a mark that still ranks third-highest in the history of Sooner women’s basketball. She also is ninth in career minutes averaged per game (31.4) and was named in 1986, to the All-Big 8 All-Conference Second Team. If that weren’t enough, Streets — who is only one of two Bartlesville products to have played Oklahoma women’s hoops, the other being Kelli Epps — was part of OU’s Sweet 16 team during one of her seasons. When Street’s basketball eligibility expired, she wasn’t quite done. She played one of year of OU Sooner softball — as a second baseman — and earned Second Team All-American honors. “Probably, the most rewarding part of my college career was that I got to play Division I basketball and Division I softball,” Streets said. Streets’ softball roots went back to the Blazer group, where she played for coaches Lew Ambler and Don Brisbin, among others. “We had such support for our summer program,” she recalled. “I played four years (as shortstop) with the Blazers. Almost all of us were from Bartlesville Sooner.” She recalls traveling to several states, such as Kansas, South Dakota, Colorado, Texas and others, during her Blazer days, and colliding against teams from southern and northern California and others. “We were in the mix for the national (ASA) championship,” she said. “My sophomore, junior and senior years we went to the national tourney.” Streets owned the leadoff spot in the batting lineup. “I took pride in getting on any way I could,” she said. “I always led the team in steals. Get me to second base and I’m going to score.” Cooper batted cleanup and Bunge “was just solid as a pitcher,” Streets said. When it came to high school softball, Streets is grateful that coach Larry Fischer handled a pressure situation well, after he inherited a Lady Spartan team with high expectations. “He was in a tough position coming in with these players and what they were supposed to do,” she said. “He was under a little scrutiny because we had done so well on the national level.” Streets considers her two greatest coaching mentors in Bartlesville to be Ambler and Carol Green. “They were in the forefront of coaches,” said Streets, who has gone to coach the past several years. Green began her coaching career in Pagosa Springs, Colo., and then spent a year at Shiprock, N.M., coaching at a reservation school. She then returned to Colorado, to as the head girls basketball coach at Durango High School. “My last four years of coaching girls basketball, we were in the Sweet 16 twice and won the league three times,” she said. Streets then decided to become an assistant with the boys basketball team, a position she still holds. “I just said to myself I can coach more as an assistant and I don’t have to do all the paper work and the logistics,” she explained, adding the head coach asked her to teach the boys the fundamentals of the game. “I love to watch film and strategize,” Streets added. “I love teaching and coaching. … We’ve turned the program around. We were second in the league last year and we’ve gone to state five of the seven years I’ve been here. I love coaching either boys or girls.” Next November — the weekend of Nov. 13-14, to be specific — Streets will have to ask for some time off for a trip to Bartlesville. She, no doubt, will rekindle some memories with former coaches and teammates and see her contributions to the local sports story be canonized in the BAHOF. It’s been a long, long, exciting journey for the well-traveled Streets. But, in some ways, it seems like it all started just yesterday. ——— ©2015 the Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise (Bartlesville, Okla.)

Tucker set to sign LOI today
Mike Tupa, Associated Press | Apr 15, 2015Bartlesville High School girls basketball legend Hailey Tucker — who is set next month to graduate — has likely not played her final game in the Bruin Fieldhouse. Later today, the 6-foot-2 forward — who was highly sought by numerous Division I college women’s basketball programs — is scheduled to sign a letter of intent with Southwestern Oklahoma State. SWOSU is a member of the Great American Conference, which will next year — and hopefully beyond that — play its postseason championship tournament in Bartlesville. Some might wonder why the Lady Bruin all-time leading scorer — who received scholarship offers from every region of the nation — decided to go with a NCAA Division II program at SWOSU. But, Tucker is at peace — and that’s all the counts for her — with the decision after the exhaustive recruiting cycle. “I love the coaches and I met the players and walked the campus,” Tucker said Tuesday. “I felt right at home. I’ve been on a lot of different college campuses and it just felt right.” Another factor that played in her decision focused on an uncle who coaches girls high school basketball in Weatherford. “They’re building a brand new house and I told them I would come over and hang out,” Tucker said with a laugh. Beyond that, Tucker is not content with the idea of playing for a mediocre team or non-contender on any level. She feels the SWOSU ladies have the ability to climb to the top of the mountain in NCAA-II. “It’s just the fact I have a chance to win a national championship,” she said. “Some of the D-I schools I was looking at seemed like they’re not going to be very successful. I’m a really determined person. … If I can’t fix some things it’s hard. I’m just glad I’m going to a program I’m hopefully able to change.” Tucker explained that part of her decision was based on her experience as a senior with this year’s Lady Bruin basketball team. Saddled with extreme youth, the Lady Bruins posted an 11-12 record — the team’s first losing record during Tucker’s tenure as a Lady Bruin. In fact, Tucker said she’s never experienced that much losing on any level. Lady Bruin coach Terry Rogers credited Tucker for carrying more than her share of the load for the 2014-15 squad. Tucker averaged 23.7 points per game and played all over the court — from the brutal battles in the low post to launching and sinking 35-foot three points. One of Rogers’ personal highlights from the season was “Hailey scoring 37 or 38 points at Carl Albert,” he said. He also recalled Tucker setting a new all-time Lady Bruin career scoring mark of 1,869 points. “She told us coaches that with the D-1 offers she had she felt she didn’t have any opportunity to win a national championship,” explained Rogers. “Going to Southwestern there’s that possibility. There’s a lot of D-I athletes playing Division II ball. What I’m proudest of there is her getting a full ride, getting her school paid for and getting to play the sport she really enjoys.” Tucker’s impact on the Lady Bruin program is hard to fathom. Prior to her arrival, Bartlesville had gone a few seasons with only single digit wins — not even close to 10 victories. During her freshman year, Bartlesville rolled to a 17-9 mark and finished one game shy of going to state. During her four years, Bartlesville captured 65 victories, posted three winning seasons, and advanced multiple times to the area playoff tournament. She will join a SWOSU team that has advanced the past two years to the NCAA-II regionals and which captured the 2014 GAC tournament crown. Tucker is looking forward to returning next March to the Bruin Fieldhouse to play in the GAC tourney. She said she’s grateful for the support people in Bartlesville have shown here. During almost every one of her shifts at Rib Crib, she said that someone recognizes her for her impact on the basketball team. “I feel really good about that,” she said. As far as her academic pursuits, Tucker is considering anything from sports broadcasting to medicine/dentistry. But, the decision about her major is not a pressing task. For right now, she’s made the toughest choice of her young life — and she’s anxiously waiting to begin to write the next chapter of her storied athletic achievements. ——— ©2015 the Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise (Bartlesville, Okla.)

OKLAHOMA ALUMNI TURNPIKE CHALLENGE SET FOR SATURDAY IN TULSA The Oklahoma Alumni Turnpike Challenge will reignite rivalries of old once again Saturday evening in Tulsa. Tulsa Washington High School will host the event, which begins at 5 p.m. with a game between Tulsa McLain and Star Spencer alums. Tulsa Washington and Douglass alumni will square off in the nightcap. Among the notable alumni expected to attend are former Oklahoma State star Leroy Combs of Star Spencer, Douglass standout and current head coach Kendal Cudjoe and Tulsa Washington’s R.W. McQuarters, who went on to play in the NFL. Shae Seals, who played at McLain and coached at Tulsa Washington, and William Tisdale are also expected to attend. Cudjoe played in the Douglass-Tulsa Washington rivalry in the 1970s under his father, legendary Douglass coach Lawrence Cudjoe. “This was the oldest and most popular rivalry in the state,” Kendal Cudjoe said. “It’s unfortunate that it had to end in football and basketball. It goes back as far as the 1930s.” Tulsa Washington alum Fred Jones has organized the event, which began four years ago. “We are celebrating 95 years of athletic tradition,” he said. “Both schools truly bleed orange and black. We will have plenty of former players from all schools in the building, so this will be an awesome night.” TOLEDO OFFERS HARRAH’S LOGAN ROBERSON Add Harrah offensive lineman Logan Roberson to the ever-growing list of Oklahoma players to add scholarship offers the past few weeks. Roberson was offered by Toledo on Wednesday, Harrah coach Phil Webb told The Oklahoman. The offer is the second for Roberson, who was offered by Arkansas State early in the offseason. The 6-foot-5, 320-pound junior is ranked No. 13 on The Oklahoman’s Super 30. TEAGUE’S HOMER LIFTS MOUNT ST. MARY Mount St. Mary’s Jeff Teague might have found a way to ignite his team. Teaque hit a decisive three-run homer in the seventh inning at Heritage Hall on Monday, propelling the Rockets to a 10-8 victory to return to .500. “We haven’t had many of those kind of events happen this year, so naturally it’s an ignited of many sorts,” Mount St. Mary coach John Keilty said. Teague, a left-handed hitter, hit the three-run blast off last week’s Player of the Week, Joe Buckendorff. He allowed five earned runs in just 11/3 innings of work. Teague finished 2 for 3 with four RBIs and three runs. The Rockets are now 8-8 and host Crossings Christian on Monday.

Tolin retires; bracket time again
Mike Tupa, Associated Press | Mar 17, 2015Nearly 44 years ago Doug Tolin picked up his diploma from Bartlesville Sooner High School and headed off into the mysterious wonderland known as the future. Choosing a career as a coach, Tolin eventually put down roots — in 2000 — as the head men’s basketball skipper at Oklahoma Baptist University. Following 15 seasons — including the NAIA-I national championship year of 2009-10 — Tolin is retiring, according to a press release on the OBU website. Slated to enter today into the NAIA Hall of Fame, Tolin’s OBU Bison teams captured 402 wins, made the NAIA tourney 14 out of 15 seasons, came home as NAIA national runner-up in 2002, and advanced three times to the Final Four. After graduating in 1971, from Sooner High, Tolin attended East Central University. He already belongs to the OBU Athletic Hall of Fame and the Oklahoma Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame. Tolin’s coaching legacy lives on in the form of Kyle Tolin, who is a head coach at the University of Arkansas-Monticello, which is a member of the Great American Conference. The GAC holds its postseason tourney in Bartlesville, which means that in March 2016, Kyle could be coaching his team in the Bartlesville Bruin Fieldhouse. Best of luck for Doug Tolin in all that awaits ahead. Bracket time Oh, I hate this!

ECU men advance, women ousted in GAC playoffs
Courtesy Great American Conference, Associated Press | Mar 7, 2015BARTLESVILLE — East Central reached a pair of milestones in its 78-58 win against Southern Nazarene in Friday's second Great American Conference Men’s Basketball Championship quarterfinal. For the first time since the 1997-98 season, the Tigers won a postseason game and reached the 20-win mark. The Tigers (20-9) jumped out quickly on a Crimson Storm (13-14) squad making their first appearance at the GAC Championships following a three-year transition into NCAA Division II. ECU opened up early leads of 11-4 and 24-9. A 3-pointer at the first-half horn by Brandon Lucas, the Tigers' eighth 3-point connection of the game, gave them a 43-27 advantage. East Central shot 53.3 percent over the opening 20 minutes. In the second half, East Central kept Southern Nazarene at bay, never letting the Crimson Storm inch any closer than 13 points. The Tigers — who led by as many as 25 down the stretch — continued to shoot the ball well, improving to 54.5 percent in the second half. Donovan Halsel proved to have the hottest hand as he finished the night a perfect 7-for-7 from the field, including 5-for-5 from the 3-point arc for a career-high 19 points. Lucas finished 4-of-5 and added 14 points. First-Team All-GAC guard Stirling Thomas added 11 points. Thomas and Braxton Reeves each increased their season's 3-point field goal total to 91, four away from matching the conference's single single-season mark in the category. Corey McCrary led the Crimson Storm with 14 points on 4-of-7 shooting and 3-of-4 from the 3-point arc. C.J. Rodriguez added eight points, seven rebounds and four assists. The Tigers battled Harding in a Saturday night semifinal contest. Each team earned a win on their home floor this season. Harding won 87-80 on Jan. 15 in Searcy, while East Central won 78-76 on Jan. 21 in Ada. In that contest, Reeves won the game with a 3-pointer as time expired. Arkansas-Monticello turns back East Central women BARTLESVILLE — Arkansas-Monticello turned to its first-team All-Great American Conference selection, Jordan Goforth, to secure its first GAC Women’s Basketball Championship win and the junior responded with nine straight points late to salt away the Cotton Blossoms 63-54 victory against East Central in Thursday’s final quarterfinal contest from the Bruin Fieldhouse. Up by only two points with just over six minutes remaining, Goforth stretched the lead to seven as she hit a 3-pointer, another jump shot and four free throws over a five-minute span. Conversely, East Central (15-12) went 1-for-7 from the field with a turnover in that span. The Cotton Blossoms (14-12) made 10 of their last 12 free throws down the stretch to earn the win. Goforth finished with 24 points and seven rebounds. She hit 3-of-5 from the 3-point arc and added three assists in her 37 minutes of play. Tori Nichols added 13 points and Nikki Mullen went 9-for-10 from the free-throw line en route to contributing 11 points. East Central closed out the first year of the Matt Cole coaching era by shooting only 37.1 percent in the loss. The Tigers’ All-GAC selections — Dilan Webster, Erin Walling and Taylor Fischer — struggled to find the range all night as the trio shot just 13-of-41 from the field. Webster did notch a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds. Walling, a graduate of Ada High School, scored 14 points to lead the ECU offense. Webster finished seventh on the ECU career points list with 1,260. The game was the final game for seniors Fischer, Janee Garza, Ashleigh Kelman-Poto, Walling and Webster. The group helped turn the Lady Tigers around from an 8-19 season in 2011-12 to 19-9 records in 2012-13 and 2013-14.

Mike Tupa, Associated Press | Mar 4, 2015Spectators at this week’s Great American Conference championship basketball tournament will have the opportunity to see some of the top women’s players in NCAA Division II. The 16-team tourney — which consists of an eight-team men’s bracket and an eight-team women’s bracket — is set to get underway Thursday at the Bartlesville High School Bruin Fieldhouse. This is the fourth-consecutive year the Bartlesville Sports Commission has hosted the event, which determines the GAC men and women’s champions, which will automatically qualify for the NCAA-II regionals. Thursday’s action will feature four women’s quarterfinals. The men’s quarterfinals will take place Friday. The women’s semifinals are set for Saturday afternoon, followed by the men’s semifinals on Saturday night. The women’s championship game is slated for 1 p.m. Sunday, followed by the men’s final. The GAC women’s teams are deep with nationally-recognized talent. Arkansas Tech’s Fatima Adams is the nation’s sixth-leading scorer (21.3 ppg) and is in the top 50 in rebounding (9.7 rpg). Henderson State’s Aungelique Sledge is averaging 20.8 ppg — which is 14th highest in the nation — and 7.0 rpg. Perhaps the most dangerous GAC women’s player in attendance at the tourney will be Harding’s Arielle Saunders. She will be the conference’s lone athlete (men or women) who is averaging a double-double — 16.5 ppg (85th in the nation) and 11.1 rpg (19th in the nation). She’s also tied for 15th in the nation with 16 double-doubles. Southeastern Oklahoma’s Emily Williams is pumping in 18.3 ppg (39th in the nation) and pulled down 7.4 rpg. She’s almost among the GAC’s top playmakers (3.2 assists per game). Chelsea Bates of Southwestern Oklahoma and Erin Walling of East Central are both ranked in the top 45 in the nation in assist/turnover ratio, at 1.83 each. Southeastern Oklahoma freshman Olivia Potter has hit 78 three-pointers, ranking her 12th in the nation. Arkansas-Monticello’s Jordan Goforth is the nation’s sixth-most accurate free throw shooter (105-115, .913); she is averaging 17.9 ppg. Unfortunately for those in attendance at the tourney, one of the conference’s most vibrant powers, Aminata Fall of Southern Nazarene University, won’t be on the court, as SNU failed to qualify. Fall is the nation’s fifth-leading scorer (21.3 ppg) and 18th top rebounder (11.2 rpg). Note: the stats listed above are as of Feb. 26 and don’t include the numbers or rankings after last weekend’s regular season finales. Women Scoring Player School Total FGs 3pters FTs Avg.

Water committee offically formed
By Ed Darling The Duncan Banner, Associated Press | Feb 25, 2015A Water Projects Advisory Committee was officially formed by the Duncan City Council Tuesday, following the recommendation of the council and members of the Duncan Area Economic Development Foundation (DAEDF) at a Feb. 5 joint work session at the Simmons Center. The committee of volunteers, which falls under the Open Meetings Act, will be asked to study the current water crisis in Duncan and to create short- and long-term solutions and plans to ensure water availability for the city, its residents and its industrial and business base. Council members voted 3-1 in favor of the committee. Dr. Mike Nelson was absent. Councilman Ricky Mayes opposed the committee.

He worked in research and development for Halliburton Energy Services for 40 years, working on product development in the area of water and sand exclusion in oil and gas production. He holds 10 U.S. patents and has authored 13 technical publications. Currently, he consults and teaches seminars on sand exclusion and stimulation for Well Completion and Technology LLC. Galloway is a native of Lincoln County, Missouri. He attended high school in Winfield, Missouri, and graduated from the School of the Ozarks with a B.S. degree in Industrial Technology and a minor in Business.
