Demons look to get back on track




Speaking of the Comets, they will be at home this afternoon, and all this week.

Today the Wilson Eagles will provide the opposition (4:30 p.m.), as Kyle Bare and his squad look to take full advantage of home field.

After a visit from Comanche on Tuesday, the Comets will prepare to host the Jake Leffler Comet Invitational wood-bat tournament starting on Thursday.

V-A’s first game will be against Waurika with the first pitch set for 2 p.m. from Velma.


Another team who will be taking part in the Comet Invitational wood-bat tournament will be the Central High Bronchos (9-9).

Following a hectic week full of cancellations due to wet conditions, the Bronchos will look to get above .500 as they will travel to Chattanooga and Fletcher today and Tuesday respectively.

CHHS will meet Walters on Thursday in its first round game at the Comet Invitational, with the first pitch set for Noon. Should the Bronchos win, they will play Frederick at 4 p.m. Thursday afternoon.


If one game is good, then two is better.

Today will see the Bray-Doyle Donkeys play a doubleheader against Oklahoma Christian Academy as B-D will look to make up for games lost last week due to weather.

Maysville will be waiting on Thursday afternoon, before a triangular with Washington and Lexington will take place on Friday for the Donkeys.


While the rain might have caused havoc across the state, it didn’t stop the No. 4 Marlow Outlaws from earning another win.

At the Jones Tournament on Saturday, the Outlaws gained a measure of revenge against the Longhorns, shutting them out 7-0.

MHS fans will hope another slice of humble pie will be served Tuesday afternoon at Stone-Black Field when the Tuttle Tigers come to play.

These two teams have already met once this season, with the Tigers coming away with a slim 4-3 victory on March 8.

Thursday afternoon will see the Outlaws return to tournament play, as they will participate in the Kingfisher/Piedmont Tournament.

MHS will take on Noble at 2:30 p.m. and Christian Heritage at 5 p.m. to open play on Thursday.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
