Huskies come back again; rewarded with state championship
The Edmond North boys soccer team was certainly down. But, only a fool would have called them out.
Trailing defending state champion Norman North late in the second half of the Class 6A state finals, the Huskies came through with one final escape act.
In a matter of minutes, the Huskies flipped the course of Saturday afternoon’s state finals match at Noble High School. Clay Collier scored the equalizer with 19 minutes to play. Three minutes later, Edmond North vaulted in front 2-1 on a score by Sam Brown.
UCO softball team makes Central Regional finals
Ally Dziadula set the tone in Central Oklahoma’s first at bat and the Bronchos erupted for nine first-inning runs en route to a stunning 11-3 winner’s bracket rout of top-seeded Fort Hays State (Kan.) in the NCAA Division II Central Regional I Tournament in Hays, Kan. Saturday.
Dziadula roped a triple off the right field fence to lead off the bottom of the first inning against FHSU ace Maddie Holub — who no-hit UCO in a 5-0 win last week — and the Bronchos got run-scoring hits from four different players in taking early control.

Edmond's a special place for golf
From youth golf, to the collegiate level, to the professionals playing out of Oak Tree National, golf in Edmond is pretty special.
And, what a way to boost the level of golf in Edmond — if possible — by bringing in the 2014 U.S. Senior Open to Oak Tree National next summer.
On Thursday at Oak Tree, the USGA had a press conference announcing the championship will be contested in Edmond at Oak Tree National.
“It’s (the state of golf) terrific here in Edmond,” said senior professional Willie Wood, one of the current touring pros consisting of the “Oak Tree Gang” stated. “Memorial (high school) has always been good and Santa Fe has good teams. Edmond North just won its ninth straight state championship.”
UCO starts tourney with win
Sam Cool’s clutch hit and Kalynn Schrock’s masterful pitching paved the way for Central Oklahoma as the No. 19-ranked Bronchos slipped past Minot State 2-0 in the first round of the NCAA Division II Central Regional I Tournament in Hays, Kan. Friday.
Cool came through with a two-out, two-run double in the bottom of the sixth inning to snap a scoreless tie and Schrock escaped a seventh-inning jam to finish off a complete-game four-hitter in moving UCO into today’s 1 p.m. game against the Fort Hays State-Emporia State winner.
“I think we came out a little tight,” said head coach Genny Stidham, whose team improved to 43-11. “We didn’t play as relaxed as I would like and we definitely didn’t hit the ball as well as I would like, but a win is a win.”
