Demon baseball has sights on state
The Duncan baseball team has its sights on getting to state, after seeing its run end at regionals the past two seasons.
“It’s where I believe we belong year in and year out,” said Demon coach Tim Hightower, “and I believe we have the kids to do it.”
Outlaws focused on winning state title
With seven starters returning, Marlow baseball heads into the spring focused on making a run at the state title.
The Outlaws went 32-5 and were in the Class 3A state semifinals last year. Coach Jeff Brewer has high hopes for the season, which is driven by a group that has handled that pressure before.
Indians look to groom new pitching rotation
The Comanche middle school principal will guide the high school baseball team this season.
Brent Crow is no stranger to baseball, though. He coached junior high baseball a few years ago.
Young Comets boast many talented athletes
Colt Allison takes over the Velma-Alma baseball team, after coaching at Sayre for the past four years.
The Comets will have a young squad and Allison said he is still getting to know the players. Because he took the job late in the summer, he was unable to work with the athletes during that time.
Bronchos look to get over playoff hump
For Central High baseball, the season boils down to one opponent, Sterling.
The school that is 13 miles away has been thorn in the Bronchos side come playoff time. It’s very difficult for coach Jeff Jones to get a playoff bracket that doesn’t include the Tigers, because of their proximity. However the top eight teams are seperated in the state playoff bracket, allowing each one to have a clear run at making the quarterfinals. That makes the key to the season very simple.
Bulldogs make quick transition to diamond
A new face takes over the reigns of Empire baseball, as Stefan Hunt settles in for his first year as a high school baseball head coach.
The team will start it’s preparation for the new season Sunday. It will be a quick transition for Hunt as he lost his final game in his first year as head boys basketball coach on Friday to Geronimo. He expects a lot of the same players from the basketball team to participate.
Quality athletes comprise Duncan track
The Duncan boys track team has high expectations.
Duncan was the Class 5A state runner-up in 2013. The Demons graduated a few seniors, such as Jack Braught, who now plays football for the University of Oklahoma, and two individual state champions, pole vaulter Dylan Mettler and shot put thrower Derek McKnight.
Many state qualifiers back for another season of track
Plenty of state qualifiers are back for another season of Stephens County track.
The Velma-Alma boys have won three straight Class A state team trophies and look to make it four in a row. The Comet girls, Marlow and Comanche, return many athletes as well.
County golfers ready to get season started
Stephens County’s golf teams expect great things this season.
Young soccer squads have much talent
The Duncan soccer teams are young but the coaches expect the athletes can accomplish much this season.
Boys coach Marcus Williams believed that last year’s team was good but “we underachieved” and didn’t come together as he expected them to. This year, he sees more chemistry among the players.
