DUNCAN — While the school year might be winding down to an end, athletics in Stephens County are still in full swing this week for several area high school teams.

Starting today, the Class 5A Boys regional tennis tournament will start from Duncan High School, with the Demons looking to match the success of their female counterparts,  who claimed not only a regional championship last week, but a state title this past weekend in Oklahoma City.

Duncan’s boys golf team will also be in action starting today at the Class 5A state tournament from the Tulsa Country Club in Tulsa. DHS’ boy’s squad will look to claim  a state title, with the Lady Demons claiming second place last week at the girl’s state tournament.

Comanche and Marlow will also be taking aim at a state title in boys’ golf, when the Indians and Outlaws tee-off this morning from the Duncan Golf and Tennis Club in the  Class 3A State competition. Last week, the Lady Indians finished in a tie for fourth at the girls state golf competition, battling less than pleasant weather conditions along the way.  

Another team in action today will be the Velma-Alma boys golf team, who will be teeing off from Broken Arrow in the Class 2A boys state competition.

Then, on Thursday the No. 3 Marlow Outlaws will look to make more history as they will take the field for the Class 3A state baseball tournament quarterfinals from Deer Creek High School in Edmond. MHS’ opponent hasn’t been named yet, nor has a time been determined for when the Outlaws will be playing on Thursday
