Coyle boys advance to state

CLEVELAND, Okla. — The Coyle boys basketball team will be returning to the state tournament for the first time in five years with a convincing 75-36 victory over Burlington in the Class B Area 3 championship game.

“It’s exciting to be going to state,” Coyle coach Josh Sumrall said. “We’re just really grateful. We’ve been able to reach all our goals all year and we’ve gotten better throughout the year and throughout these playoffs. We’re just happy and honored to be playing the state tournament next weekend.”

Fidel Simpson led the Bluejackets in scoring with 20 points, followed by Eric Harris (16 points), Jakobi Brown (14) and Tony Aska (12).

Coyle heads to the state tournament on a roll, having not lost a single game in the playoffs — winning four games by 30 points or more. In the playoffs, the Bluejackets are averaging 78 points per contest.

“The entire playoffs we’ve been hitting on all cylanders,” Sumrall said. “We’ve got a lot of weapons to choose from. Hopefully we can keep playing together on a high level.”

Glencoe 56, Pond Creek Hunter 36

STROUD — The Glencoe High School boys basketball team punched its ticket to state with a 56-36 in over Pond Creek Hunter Saturday in the Class A area finals.

Ty Lazenby recorded a double-double with 33 points and 13 rebounds, while Kagen Castlebury had eight points and nine rebounds for the Panthers.

This will be the second straight trip to the state for Glencoe.

Thomas Custer 44, Ripley girls 43

OKLAHOMA CITY — Jaclyn McKnight scored 19 points, but it wasn’t enough to keep the Ripley High School girls basketball team in the winners bracket of the Class 2A Area I tournament as the Lady Warriors fell to Thomas Custer 44-43 in overtime.

“They just made one more play than we did,” Ripley coach Doug Scott said. “We played well, but they just made one play at the end.”

Kylie Ladd added 11 points while Wisper Lefthand chipped in five points for Ripley (26-2), which will play at 6:30 Thusday in Enid.
