Seniors complete careers at Classic

CACHE —  While the regular season and the playoffs ended months ago for high school basketball, Tuesday night provided one last chance for area high school seniors to lace up their shoes one more time.

At the 12th annual Southwest Oklahoma Senior Classic from Cache High School, boys and girls players from Stephens County and the surrounding area were divided into the North and South teams, to come together for one last fun game. For Duncan Lady Demons Jamie Carberry and Sarah Ray, both members of the North team, the Senior Classic provided the friends one last opportunity to play alongside one another, in addition to giving Ray one last moment on the court despite a serious knee injury.

“It’s bittersweet for me, because this is my last time wearing a basketball jersey with my number on it,” Ray said. “Basketball is my passion and the knee gets in the way sometimes, but you just go out there and do it. I knew I shouldn’t be out there, but my adrenaline was pumping and it was extremely special for me. I’m going to miss doing work out there with Jamie [Carberry] as well.”

Carberry totaled six points on the evening, along with winning the three-point competition, which was held at halftime of the large school girls game.

“It feels pretty good, I wasn’t expecting to win it because I don’t normally shoot threes,” Carberry said. “Knowing this was my last game with Sarah [Ray] and my last game in general is sad but it was special. I always love playing for fun, because it gives you the chance to enjoy the sport more.”

Other members of the North squad who made an impact were Marlow Lady Outlaws players Ashley O’Dell, leading her team with 12 points, along with Avery Walker, who scored five points and Emmalee Williams. The group prevailed with a 34-22 win against the south squad.

The boys large school contest pitted two friendly rivals against each other, in Comanche coach Nick Price and soon to be Davis head coach John Garrett, who was representing Marlow High School.

While Price’s side got the 53-49 victory on the evening, Garrett said it was nice getting to coach against someone he’s familiar with in a fun environment.

“These games are always pretty loose,” he said. “Every single guy on the bench wants to win, but also have a good time. Marlow-Comanche goes way back in every sport. Davis is in Comanche’s conference, and it’s going to add an extra charge when we meet them.”

Garrett got to watch one of his own represent Marlow during the game, as Jackson Huddleston scored four points in the game for the North team.

“Jackson has been one of my favorites from day one,” Garrett said. “I made him play point guard when I first had him in seventh grade, and I made him do it again tonight just for old times sake. I’ve got a great relationship with those guys, and they are a very bright group of young men.”

Also playing for Stephens County for the North were Duncan players Jack Braught, Cade Baldwin and Carter David, while Comanche’s Garrett Morrow suited up for the South.

Central High’s Lady Bronchos were also represented in the girls small school game as Lora-Lynn Loomis and Lacie Phillips teamed up one last time on the North team, with Loomis scoring nine points in the first half with Phillips getting two points in the first frame.

In the boys small school game, Central High’s Dallin Ferrin played for the North and Empire’s Cordell Setters played for the South squad.

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.
