Battle for Bragging Rights
Being district, region or area champs is nice, but being Stephens County champs is even nicer.
Okay, that may be a bit of an exaggeration, but it’s still a pretty big deal.
With teams around here ranging from Class B to Class 5A, they don’t often get to compete for the same titles. This is one of those rare exceptions.
The first step for area teams should be making sure neither of the intruders (Ryan and Frederick) wins a title. From there it is a free-for-all.
Most of the basketball players in Stephens County are friends with one another. It isn’t rare to see Central High kids cutting up with Comanche players, or Marlow kids sitting with Duncan students, but this is one of the weeks during the year when those friendships are set aside for the sake of competition..
