Valedictorian Tate Kimbro Seeks to Soar in the Aeronautical Industry

0

 He loves anything mechanical and working with his hands.

When he is not fishing or hunting, he loves working on the ranch and staying busy.

Tate will be going to SWOSU in Weatherford in  the fall and majoring in Engineering Technology. Perhaps he will be working for Boeing or some aeronautical company. 

Some of his fondest memories comes from time he spent with his friends and playing sports.

One of his favorite memories is the time Joseph Martin passed a basketball across court to J.D. who made the winning basket against Waurika. 

When it comes to hunting, he really enjoys hunting deer. He even has a recipe he got from Tyler Garrett to make a really great deer jerkey. 

His favorite music is heavy metal. 

He loves the movie The Green Mile. He also likes scary movies. 

The only book he really enjoys reading is the Bible. 

His favorite color is powder blue. 

He looks forward to getting started at Weatherford. He wants to show up two weeks in advance so he can go ahead and get to work. He plans on working his way through school. 

Just a few of his accomplishments include Valedictorian, 8-man All-Star, Beta, FFA, Offensive Lineman of the year, NTHS.

His favorite subjects in school include all maths and physics. 

He really loves math. 

Tate is a strapping  young  man who conducts himself as a gentleman. 

His future is bright. It will be neat to see what he does down the road. 

His love of life and ability to converse with others will take him far.  

We wish him all the best!

Keith Inadvertently Left Out of Story on Ryan’s Senior Night

0

In an oversight in last week’s paper, Ryan senior Justyce Keith was not mentioned as one of the graduating seniors on the Cowgirl slow-pitch softball team.

Keith has been a starter on the slow-pitch and fast-pitch teams the past two years and has been one of Coach Stan Mueggenborg’s pitchers during the 2019 slow-pitch season.

The starting pitcher for nearly every contest this past season, she was not pictured with the other two Ryan senior slow-pitch softball players because of a prior commitment.

The News-Journal apologizes to Keith and wishes her the best in today’s district tournament.

 OKC, OK- On September 16, 2018, Members of the Ryan FFA chapter volunteered their time at the Oklahoma State Fair in the Agtropolis building. Members had the opportunity to work “Farmer for a day” station, this activity allows our members to interact with children from around the state of Oklahoma while teaching them about agricultural practices. Each member that attended did a tremendous job representing our chapter while advocating for agriculture.

Alicen Williams and Riley Ross work the cashier station at the “Farmer for a day” activity.

Cowboys Snap Losing Streak With Victory Over Thackerville

Photo by Sheree Hanson

While the Ryan Cowboys snapped a long losing streak last Thursday against Thackerville, it was still a difficult weekend for the Ryan squads.

Last Thursday, Thackerville edged the Cowgirls, 36-33, while the Cowboys scored a 42-39 victory over the Wildcats on Raymon West Court to end a six-game skid.

Ryan traveled to Healdton last Friday and fell in both contests. The Lady Bulldogs took advantage of poor shooting by the Cowgirls to gain a 43-26 verdict.

Healdton, 18-2 on the year and ranked 18th in Class 2A, rolled to a 48-13 victory over the Cowboys.

Against Healdton, the Cowgirls got off to a tough start falling behind the Lady Bulldogs, 9-1, after one quarter.

All of Healdton’s first-quarter points came on three converted long range field goals.

The Cowgirls battled the Lady Bulldogs on even terms in the second quarter and were competitive most of the rest of the game trailing by 15 points with just three minutes to play.

Ultimately it was the first quarter deficit that was too much to overcome.

Lily York led the Cowgirls in scoring with 10 points.

Coach Steve Spangler’s Cowgirls are still playing without one starter.

The Cowgirls have lost nine straight to the Lady Bulldogs dating back to the 1993 season.

The Cowboys were short-handed also as two starters were missing against Healdton with illness.

Healdton got off to an impressive start and took a 14-3 lead after the first quarter.

The Bulldogs struggled, however, in the second quarter, but the Cowboys could not trim the margin and trailed 19-5 at the half.

For the second time this season the Cowboys came out of the intermission and could not score a point. The Bulldogs went on a 16-0 run in the period for an insurmountable 35-5 lead heading into the final frame.

The Cowboys broke the scoring drought, but Healdton still managed to outscore Ryan, 13-8, to set the final margin.

The 13 points scored in the game is the second fewest in school history and is the fewest since recording only 15 points in a 1988 encounter with Sulphur.

Dawson Tomberlin was the leading scorer for Coach Judd Matthes’ squad with seven points.

The Cowboys have lost six of the last eight meetings with the Bulldogs dating back to the 1993 season.

In the game with Thackerville, the Cowgirls trailed by a 9-5 count after the first quarter and again it was hot outside shooting by the Lady Wildcats that doomed the Cowgirls.

Thackerville’s nine points came on three treys.

Thackerville was able to increase the margin to 20-15 at the half before the Cowgirls came alive after the halftime break and managed to narrow the score to 26-24 at the end of the third quarter.

In the fourth quarter, the Wildcats sealed the victory by scoring the last seven points from the free throw line. The Cowgirls could not cut into the deficit in the final frame thanks to missing three of five charity tosses.

York finished with 17 points for the Cowgirls and she was responsible for all five of Ryan’s first quarter point total.

Thackerville moved to 15-3 after this win.

The Cowgirls are 25-13 against Thackerville in the last 38 meetings, but have now lost two in a row to the Lady Wildcats.

The Cowboys established a seven-point lead after the first quarter and were able to extend the lead to 20-11 at intermission.

The Wildcats cut into the lead in the third quarter and trailed only 30-24 heading to the fourth quarter.

The Cowboys could not shake the Wildcats mainly because of a struggle at the free throw line.

For the entire game, Ryan only converted on 35% of its free throw attempts.

Skyler Parkhill led the Cowboys in scoring with 14 points and he scored five of the Cowboys’ eight first-quarter points and was the only player for the Cowboys to score in every quarter.

It was the fourth win in a row for the Cowboys over the Wildcats.

The Cowboys and Cowgirls were to have met Geronimo last Tuesday on Raymon West Court.

Both squads return to action tonight by traveling to Burneyville to face Turner for a doubleheader.

Tomorrow night will be Senior Night for the Cowgirl and Cowboy basketball teams as they play host to Temple.

Ryan will finish the regular season on Tuesday as they travel to Empire.

The Class A District Tournament will begin on February 9 at Central High
