Frontier, Coyle ready for Frontier shootout

STILLWATER, Okla. — There’s an old adage that to be the best you have to beat the best. Some of the best boys and girls programs in the state will come to Red Rock for the Frontier Shootout, starting Monday and ending Friday.

The Lady Mustangs (2-1) open with Preston on Monday. Coach Clay Stephens said they are a bit of an unknown.

“They will have about 10 to 12 girls,” Stephens said. “They’ve been inconsistent this season. They beat Red Oak but lost to Dale. We just have to take care of the ball.”

Also on the girls bracket is Tonkawa, Coyle and Morrison. Stephens said all those teams will be good opponents.

“Tonkawa is tough, they’re the No. 1 seed,” Stephens said. “Morrison and Coyle are pretty good. (Coyle) coach (Tom) Webb as been around a long time and will have his team prepared. It’s a good tournament.”

The Bluejackets (3-1) enter the tournament as the No. 1 seed and open with Copan on Monday. Coach Josh Sumrall said it’s a tough tournament but likes how it will prepare his team for postseason.

“It’s always tough and we are looking forward to it,” Sumrall said. “We consider ourselves as one of the best teams in the state. We want to be good and get better. That’s why we play a tough schedule.”

Coyle will face either Crescent or Garber, but Sumrall said his team is only worried about the first game.

“We have to get past Copan first,” Sumrall said.

The Frontier boys are hoping to get their first win of the season. Coach Bob Weckstein said his team is improving.

“They are good kids and work hard,” Weckstein said. “The more they play, the better they will get.”

The Mustangs (0-4) open with Preston. Weckstein said though his team is young it’s still playing a challenging schedule.

“We are trying hard,” Weckstein said. “We are a JV team playing a varsity schedule. We only have one senior, no juniors and a lot of sophomores and freshmen. We can have three to four freshmen on the floor at once.”

The Morrison Wildcats and Lady Wildcats will start their seasons at the tournament.
