Waurika Picks Up Two Wins Over Ryan To Enter District Play

Jordan Watkins

The baseball season is quickly coming to an end for the Waurika Eagles.

 The Eagles will enter post-season play today at Central High for the Class A District Tournament.

 In the first game Waurika will take on Empire at 3:30 p.m. and no matter the outcome will take on the host school following the first game around 5:30 p.m.

 The tournament is double-elimination and two losses by the Eagles in today’s action would end the Waurika nine’s season.

 In the final days of the regular season, the Eagles were able to get a pair of wins over Ryan and a victory over Geronimo. The Eagles dropped a contest to Dickson and had last Friday’s contest with Wilson rained out.

 Coach Glen Howard’s crew will take a 9-13 record into today’s tournament.

 The Eagles picked up their eighth and ninth wins of the season Monday night in a three-way matchup with Ryan and Geronimo at Geronimo.

 The Eagles defeated Ryan, 10-2, and then held off Geronimo for a 5-3 victory.

 Last Friday’s scheduled game with Wilson was rained out.

 In Monday’s action, Waurika took advantage of eight Ryan errors for the victory.

 The game was scoreless after two innings, but Waurika erupted for four runs in the top of the third inning.

 Bryson Hernandez reached on an error, stole second, advanced to third on a wild pitch and then scored on an errant pickoff attempt.

 Michael Bryant and Zachary Brown both walked and an RBI-single by Austin Dyer scored Bryant.

 The Eagles scored two more runs on another Ryan miscue with Brown and Dyer scoring to give Waurika a 4-0 lead.

 Waurika added a run in the top of the fourth when Colton Bryant reached on an infield single and stole second. A ground out by Hernandez pushed across Bryant for a 5-0 Waurika lead.

 The Cowboys managed two runs in the bottom of the fourth to cut the lead to 5-2, but the Eagles responded with five runs in the top of the fifth inning to seal the win.

 Dyer led off the inning with a single and Edwin Garcia was hit by a pitch. Dyer scored as C. Bryant reached on an error and Garcia and C. Bryant scored on another Cowboy fielding error to make the score 8-2.

 Hunter Wesberry reached base on an error and later scored on a passed ball. Hernandez followed with a single and Brown got an RBI on a fielder’s choice to close out the Waurika offensive onslaught.

 Dyer and Hernandez led the Eagles with two hits apiece.

 In the second game Monday, the Eagles got an outstanding pitching performance from Brown and Wesberry recorded a save on the mound for Waurika.

 The Eagles scored first in the top of the second inning as Brown reached on a single and stole second. He scored on Gatlin Black’s run-scoring single and the Eagles got another run on a Bluejay error to gain a 2-0 advantage.

 In the top of the third inning, the Eagles added another run on somewhat controversial play. Wesberry reached on an error and advanced to second after M. Bryant walked.

 Wesberry scored from third after Bryant was hit by a ball trying to advance to third. This gave Waurika a 3-0 lead.

 Geronimo finally got on the board in the bottom of the third with a single tally helped along by an Eagle error to cut the lead to 3-1 after three innings.

 The Eagles added another run in the fourth inning after the Geronimo center fielder could not make a play on Dyer’s fly ball. An infield single by Seth Waid drove Dyer home giving Waurika a 4-1 lead.

 Geronimo rallied for two runs in the bottom of the fourth on two hits, two singles and an error to cut the Eagle advantage to 4-3.

 Waurika added an insurance run in the top of the fifth inning as three consecutive singles the last of which came from M. Bryant that drove in Wesberry for a 5-3 advantage.

 In the bottom of the fifth Wesberry came on to retire the Bluejay batters in order to seal the win.

 Waid and Wesberry each had two hits to pace the Eagles at the plate.

 A week ago Tuesday, the Eagles scored an 8-0 victory over Ryan after dropping a 12-1 decision to Dickson in a three-way contest at the Eagle diamond.

 The Comets score three runs in the first, fourth more in the second to take a commanding 7-0 lead heading to the bottom of the second.

 The Eagles managed a run in the bottom of the second as Brown got an infield single and moved to second on Dyer’s single. Watkins reached on an error and Payton Fletcher then got an RBI-infield single to give Waurika the only run of the game.

 Dickson added five more runs in the top of the fourth inning and the game ended by the run rule after the Eagles could not score in the bottom of the inning.

 Dyer took the loss on the mound for the Eagles.

 In the second game for Waurika, the Eagles jumped out on top of Ryan after the first inning with a three-run uprising.

 Wesberry singled and scored on Brown’s RBI-single. Brown advanced on a stolen base and some defensive indifference by the Cowboys sent him to third. Dyer picked up a walk and Watkins’ base hit got a two-RBI single for the Eagles.

 The Eagles added a pair of runs in the bottom of the second to add to the lead. C. Bryant led off the inning with a walk and Hernandez singled. C. Bryant scored on Wesberry’s ground out.

 Black reached on an error that enabled Hernandez to cross the plate and make the score 5-0 after two innings.

 In the third inning the Eagles got another run as Watkins singled and stole second and third. Watkins scored on a passed ball putting Waurika ahead, 6-0, after three innings.

 The game ended in the bottom of the fourth as the Eagles scored two more runs with M. Bryant scoring on a wild pitch and reaching on a base hit and Wesberry scoring after reaching on an error.

 Watkins’ two hits paced the Eagles at the plate, while Brown tossed a one-hitter to get the win on the mound.

Waurika Nine Falls To Empire In District Title Game

Hunter Wesberry

 It was a wild district tournament for the Waurika Eagles at Central High last Thursday and Friday.

 Normally, when a team scores 30 runs in two games they come out on top on both. But, when a team gives up 27 runs, they normally lose both contests.

 However, Coach Glenn Howard’s squad went 1-1 in the first two games of the district tourney. The Eagles dropped a 15-5 decision to Empire in the first game of the tourney, but came back to defeat Central High, 25-12, to earn a berth in the district title game.

 Empire proved to be too much for the Eagles and hand Waurika a 12-0 defeat to claim the district championship.

 Empire will move on to the Class A Regional at Amber-Pocasset today and they were to have met the host school in the first round.

 In Friday’s championship game, the Eagles could get nothing going at the plate.

 Empire had a 3-0 lead after two innings and struck for six runs in the top of the third. The Bulldogs added two runs in the fourth and another run in the fifth that ended the game after Waurika could not score in the bottom of the fifth.  

In the first game of the tourney the Eagles got off to a good start. Zachary Brown got an infield hit with the bases loaded to score a run and give Waurika 1-0 lead after one inning.

The Eagles added two more runs in the top of the second on Hunter Wesberry’s two-run double, but Empire came back with a run in the bottom of the inning leaving Waurika with a 3-1 lead after two innings.

The Eagles added another run in the top of the third as Jordan Watkins led off with a triple and Gatlin Black scratched out an infield hit to score Watkins.

Empire responded with another run in the bottom of the inning, but the Eagles clung to a 4-2 lead after three innings.

In the top of the fourth, Michael Bryant was hit by a pitch and came around to score to put the Eagles in front, 5-2.

Empire knotted the score in the bottom of the fourth with three runs that included a two-run double and an RBI-single.

The wheels came off in the bottom of the sixth inning for the Eagles as Empire exploded for 10 runs to end the game on the run-rule.

The Bulldogs capitalized on four walks by adding eight hits and three stolen bases. The big hits in the inning came on a bases-loaded double and a two-run double.

This set up an elimination game between the Eagles and Central High and it was a wild affair.

Central High picked up six runs in the bottom of the first inning and things looked dismal for the Eagles to advance.

In the top of the third, however, Waurika struck for seven tallies helped along by three walks in the inning – two of those with the bases loaded gave the Eagles their first two runs.

Seth Waid followed with an RBI-single. M. Bryant followed with a bases-loaded walk and Jordan Watkins had a two-run single to cap the uprising.

Central High regained the lead at 8-7 in the bottom of the third with two runs helped along by two walks and an error.

Waurika responded, however, essentially blowing the game open with a six-run uprising.

Kevin Garcia was hit by a pitch, Ben Hernandez walked and Waid followed with a two-run double.

Colton Bryant walked to load the bases and M. Bryant followed with a bases-loaded walk. Brown followed with a two-run single and Watkins belted a two-run double that scored two more to put Waurika ahead, 13-8.

But, the Eagles were far from done as they added seven runs in the top of the fifth. Big hits included Waid’s RBI-single, M. Bryant’s RBI-infield single, Brown’s two-run double and another RBI-single by Watkins.

The Eagles left the bases loaded, but had a commanding 20-8 advantage heading to the bottom of the fifth.

The Bronchos tried to make it interesting with four runs in the fifth including a sacrifice fly and a three-run home run that cut the lead to 20-12.

The Eagles put all hopes of a Central High rally with five more runs in the top of the sixth.

A run-scoring single by Watkins and an RBI-double by Black were followed by a two-run triple by Kevin Garcia. Garcia scored on an error to set the final margin.

Watkins had four hits in the contest that led to four runs batted in. Waid had three hits and three runs batted in and M. Bryant scored four runs and had three runs batted in.

 The Eagles had 18 hits in the game.

The victory over the Bronchos ended a five-game losing streak by Waurika in district tournament play.

Waurika closed out the 2017 campaign with a 10-15 mark.

The future is somewhat bright for the Eagles on the diamond as the entire team returns for 2019 with the exception of M. Bryant, who played his final game for the Eagles in the district tournament.

“I was happy with our season,” said coach Glenn Howard on reflected on the season. “The team chemistry was good and I felt like we really started to put things together after spring break.

“Hopefully we can continue that improvement next season with the numbers we have returning,” added Howard, who finished his second year as the head coach of the Eagles.

Ryan Tournament Changes Format After Temple Drops Out

0

Cowboys get one win in tourney and one regular season win.

The fifth annual Cowboy Classic baseball tournament had to make a last-minute switch from pool play to a five-team, double-elimination format after Temple dropped out of the tourney.

 Thackerville claimed the tournament title with a 14-4 victory over Waurika in the championship game.

 The tournament was played last Thursday and Friday which was a wise move considering last Saturday’s frigid weather.

 For the Ryan Cowboys it was a one-day appearance in their own tournament.

 The Cowboys opened the tournament with a 7-5 loss to Big Pasture but managed a 10-3 victory over Grandfield in an elimination game.

 In the next round, however, Waurika eliminated the Cowboy nine with a 10-3 victory.

 The Eagles advanced to the championship game by defeating Big Pasture, 6-4, after Thackerville had handed Big Pasture its first loss of the tournament.

 For the Cowboys, the loss to the Rangers was a tough won considering Ryan had managed a 15-13 victory over Big Pasture earlier in the week.

 In the tournament contest with Big Pasture, the two squads ended the first inning tied at 1-1. The Rangers, however, exploded for six runs in the top of the third inning to take a commanding 7-1 lead.

 The Cowboys were able to hold Big Pasture scoreless the rest of the way, while picking up two runs in the fourth and one run each in the fifth and sixth inning to draw within 7-5, but the time limit ended the game after six innings.

 The victory over Grandfield was also shortened by the time limit, but the Cowboys scored in every inning to secure the win.

 A double by Joseph Martin and a walk by Grayson Tomberlin helped give the Cowboys a 1-0 lead after one inning.

 In the second inning, Andrew Villerreal reached on a walk to open the inning and after two were out, Walter Snider got an RBI-single and he eventually came around to score giving the Cowboys a 3-0 advantage.

 Grandfield cut the margin to 3-1 with a single tally in the top of the third inning, but the Cowboys answered the modest Bearcat rally with three more runs in the bottom of the third.

 G. Tomberlin and Tate Kimbro led the inning off with a pair of singles and them Dawson Tomberlin picked up a two-run double. Tomberlin came around to score after a Grandfield error to extend the Cowboys’ lead to 6-1.

 In the bottom of the fourth, G. Tomberlin tripled after one out and then scored before the Bearcats could retire the Cowboys. Ryan now led, 7-1, heading to the fifth inning.

 In the top of the fifth inning the Bearcats produced three singles coupled with an error and three stolen bases accounted for two runs cutting the lead to 7-3.

 The Cowboys ended all hopes of another rally by Grandfield by scoring three runs in the bottom of the inning. Those runs came without the benefit of a base hit thanks to two walks, three stolen bases and two Grandfield errors that put the final score at 10-3.

 This set up an elimination game between Waurika and the Cowboys.

 The Cowboys got off to a good start in the top of the first inning as D. Tomberlin and Martin led off by reaching base to give Ryan a 2-0 lead.

 The Eagles responded in the bottom half of the inning, however, striking for six runs. Bryson Hernandez, Hunter Wesberry, Zachary Brown and Gatlin Black led off the inning by reaching base and all four came around to score.

 Austin Dyer and Michael Bryant got on base after one out and eventually scored before the end of the inning to give the Eagles a 6-2 advantage.

 After a scoreless second inning, the Eagles added two more runs in the bottom of the third inning sending eight batters to the plate.

 Jordan Watkins and Dyer led off the inning by getting on base and Colton Bryant got a two-run single to put the Eagles in front 8-2. The Eagles left two men stranded before the end of the inning.

 The Eagles were not finished, however, sending eight more batters to the plate in the fourth inning. Watkins and Dyer both got one-out walks and eventually came around the score to give the Eagles a 10-3 lead after four innings.

 In the fifth inning, the Eagles scored three more runs and scored a run-rule victory over the Cowboys. Brown, Black and Dyer scored runs for the Eagles to seal the victory.

 Dyer finished the game with four runs scored after reaching base three times on walks.

 This set up another elimination game for the Eagles and Waurika responded to the challenge by scoring a 6-4 victory over Big Pasture earning a spot in the championship game against Thackerville.

 The Wildcats were too much for the Eagles and earned the title with a run-rule victory. It was the second invitational tournament the Wildcats have won this season.

 Earlier in the week the Cowboys picked up their second win over the season at Big Pasture.

 Ryan got off to a 2-0 lead after one inning when Martin reached base and after a G. Tomberlin single and an error, Martin put the first run on the board for the Cowboys.

 G. Tomberlin eventually scored on a two-out, RBI-single by River Williams.

 Things got really interesting in the bottom of the third inning as the Rangers scored five runs with only one hit. A Ryan error and three walks helped the Rangers snag the lead.

 The Cowboys regained the lead in the top of the fourth exploding for eight runs to hold a 10-5 lead.

 Singles by Martin, C. Villerreal and A. Villerreal along with four bases on balls and an error accounted for the five Cowboy runs.

 In the bottom of the fourth, the Rangers cut into the lead with three runs of their own. Two errors and two walks helped the Rangers cut the Ryan lead to 10-8 heading into the fifth inning.

 Big Pasture took the lead in the bottom of the fifth with three more runs. An error, a fielder’s choice, a walk, a single and a double contributed to the rally that put the Rangers in front, 11-10, heading to the sixth inning.

 Ryan answered with four runs in the top of the sixth with three walks and a single by Martin helping produce the go-ahead runs. The Cowboys also left the bases loaded but Ryan held a 14-10 lead.

 After holding Big Pasture scoreless in the bottom of the sixth, the Cowboys managed another run in the top of the seventh inning. Martin was hit by a pitch and eventually scored giving the Cowboys a 15-10 lead.

 Big Pasture tried to rally as the Rangers scored two runs with one out, but the Cowboys were able to get the final two outs.

 D. Tomberlin and A. Villerreal each paced the Cowboys at the plate with two hits apiece. Martin scored four runs for the Cowboys in the contest which ties the school record for most runs scored by an individual in a game.

 Ryan was to have met Waurika and Dickson on Tuesday on the Eagles’ home diamond.

 Today the Cowboys travel to Grandfield for a contest with the Bearcats and on Friday the Cowboys are scheduled to host Alex on Larry Ninman Field at the Bob Givens Sports complex.

 The Cowboys close out the regular season Monday at Geronimo with a three-way matchup with the Blue Jays and Waurika.

 It has been a busy few days for the Ryan Cowgirl slow-pitch softball squad after the team has struggled to get on the diamond because of weather and cancellations.

 The Cowgirls went 2-3 in the stretch of games with two wins over Big Pasture and losses to Thackerville, Geronimo and Grandfield.

 Thackerville added to the lead in the top of the third with three more runs for a 14-0 lead.

 The Cowgirls were able to scratch for two runs in the bottom of the third, but the game ended on the run-rule.

 Sadie Guzman led off the bottom of the third with a walk and scored, while C. Charmasson also walked and scored. The Cowgirls threatened for more runs to try to keep the game alive, but left the bases loaded.

 The Cowgirls took on Geronimo and Big Pasture a week ago Tuesday split the two contests.

 Geronimo blasted the Cowgirls for six runs in the first inning and coasted to an 11-1 victory over Ryan in just four innings.

 Keith accounted for the Cowgirls’ lone run in the game.

 The Cowgirls rebounded from the loss to pick up a 6-3 victory over Big Pasture.

 The Lady Rangers took a 1-0 lead after one inning, but the Cowgirls picked up three tallies in the top of the third to take the lead.

 Grandfield answered in the bottom of the inning as the first four batters came around to score and the Lady Bearcats added another run for a 5-0 lead after the first inning.

 The Cowgirls actually regained the lead in the top of the second inning as they exploded for eight runs.

 Eleven Cowgirls came to the plate in the inning and the first eight batters scored. Keith, C. Charmasson, Rhodes, Savannah Lashley, Keith, Linton, Good and Guzman all scored in the inning to give Ryan a 10-5 lead.

 The Bearcats responded, however, with 12 runs in the bottom of the second inning for a 17-10 lead.

 The Cowgirls could get nothing started in the third inning, while the Lady Bearcats added four more runs for a 21-10 lead heading to the top of the fourth inning.

Cowgirls’ Carter Claims Gold Medal at Elgin Invitational

0

Despite having only five competitors the Ryan Cowgirls finished in fifth place in the tough Elgin Invitational Track Meet last Thursday.

 The Cowgirls amassed 68 points in the small school division which consisted of schools from Class 3A to Class A. Hollis, a Class 2A school, won the meet with 135 points.

 And, this small contingent of Cowgirl thinclads had a memorable day in the meet that replaced the canceled Stratford meet that was originally on the Cowgirl track schedule.

 Holland Carter led the Cowgirls with a gold medal in the 800 meters. Her time of 3:01.3 was impressive considering the windy conditions.

 Lilybet Harmon earned a bronze medal in the 800 meters with a time of 3:15.27.

 The other highlight of the day came in the 1,600 meter relay. While the Cowgirls managed only a fourth place finish in the event, the squad set a school record with a time of 5:12.17, besting the previous school record mark of 5:15.0 set in the 1990 Southern Eight Conference meet.

 The 1,600 meter relay team consists of Carter, Harmon, Lily York and Juliet Spangler.

 The same group of girls earned a silver medal in the 3,200 meter relay with a time of 12:22.37 – which was well short of the school mark this relay team set earlier this season at Cache.

 The distance races are definitely the strength of the Cowgirls this season as Spangler and York added to the point total with high finishes in the 3,200 meters and the 1,600 meters.

 Spangler earned a silver medal in both events. Her time of 6:28.25 is behind her own school record time of 6:16.82 and is the fifth best in school history.

York was right behind her teammate and earned a bronze medal with a time of 6:31.45, which put her at sixth on the school record chart in the 1,600 meters.

 Spangler and York also finished second and third, respectively, in the 3,200 meters. Spangler turned in a time of 14:15.37, while York finished the race with a time of 14:57.55. Both were well back of the winning time of 13:12.65.

 This meet had a unique format in that participants from schools in all classes ran together in each event. The 3,200 meter relay team actually ran a better time than the Lawton MacArthur and Lawton High squads.

 The 68 points scored by the team in the meet was the second highest point total by a Cowgirl track team in school history.

 The Cowgirls will try to improve on their early season performances tomorrow (Friday) at the Waurika Eight-Man Invitational Meet. Field events begin at 9:30 a.m., while the running events will get under way at 10 a.m.

Cowboy Baseballers Fall In District Tournament at Grandfield

 It was a disappointing day at the Class B District Baseball Tournament at Grandfield for the Ryan Cowboys last Thursday.

The Cowgirls dropped a heart-breaking 16-14 decision to Grandfield in the first game of the tournament and were eliminated in the second game by Olustee-Eldorado, 17-2, to end the season.

Olustee-Eldorado won the district title with a 14-1 victory over Grandfield in the finals last Friday. The Diamondbacks are slated to begin the Class B Regional tournament today at Leedey where they will meet Timberlake in the first round.

The first game for the Cowboys was a bitter one. Poor pitching allowed Grandfield to build a lead and the Cowboys trailed, 16-8, heading into the seventh inning.

A furious Cowboy rally was ended with the bases loaded when a Cowboy runner was caught between third base and home.

It was the fourth meeting between the Cowboys and the Bearcats this season and the Cowboys had won the previous three meetings in dominating fashion.

The Bearcats jumped on the Cowboys in the top of the first inning as four of the first five Grandfield batters scored to carry Grandfield to a 4-0 lead.

In the bottom of the first, the Cowboys got a run when Tate Kimbro was hit by a pitch and Joseph Martin reached on an error. Grayson Tomberlin walked to load the bases and Kimbro scored on Dawson Tomberlin’s fielder’s choice. That trimmed the Grandfield lead to 4-1.

But, the Bearcats struck for three more runs in the top of the second. Three consecutive singles resulted in three more runs for the Bearcats.

The Cowboys got things going in the bottom of the second with walks by Pacen Wiest and Cameron Villerreal. Trey Bryant was hit by a pitch and Kimbro singled home a run. Two more runs scored when G. Tomberlin reached on an error to get Ryan to within 7-5 heading to the third.

Grandfield scored one more run in the third inning and left the bases loaded. The Cowboys kept pace with a run in the bottom of the third when Andrew Villerreal walked and scored when Bryant was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded.

In the top of the fourth, Grandfield added another run and held the Cowboys scoreless to notch a 9-6 lead.

Grandfield continued the offensive onslaught with an unearned run in the top of the fifth inning to extend the lead to 10-6. The Cowboys failed to score in the bottom of the inning.

The Bearcats erupted for six runs in the top of the sixth and sent 10 batters to the plate. An error, three walks, two hit batsmen and two singles led to the uprising to give Grandfield a 16-6 lead.

The Cowboys kept the game alive in the bottom of the sixth taking advantage of four walks and a two-run single by Bryant to cut the lead to 16-8 heading to the final inning.

Grandfield threatened in the top of the seventh but left the bases loaded without a run.

This set up the dramatic near comeback by the Cowboys.

Martin got things started by reaching on an error and G. Tomberlin walked. After D. Tomberlin’s fly out, A. Villerreal walked to load the bases and River Williams got a walk to score Martin.

Wiest walked to score G. Tomberlin and A. Villerreal scored on C. Villerreal’s ground out. Bryant got a two-run single that scored Williams and Wiest to cut the margin to 16-13.

Kimbro walked and Martin was hit by a pitch to load the bases again for the Cowboys. G. Tomberlin walked to score Bryant and Kimbro scored as D. Tomberlin reached on an error.

The final out came when Martin was trying to score on the error and was caught between third and home to end the game and the Cowboys falling, 16-15.

Kimbro and A. Villerreal each scored three runs for the Cowboys and Bryant was 2-for-3 with four runs batted in.

The Diamondbacks overwhelmed the Cowboys in the second game and held the Cowboys to only two runs in the game shortened to five innings because of the run rule.

In the bottom of the second, the Diamondbacks struck for seven runs, including a three-run home run to take a 7-0 lead.

Ryan got on the board in the top of the fourth when G. Tomberlin and D. Tomberlin both reached on errors and came around to score. The Cowboys left two runners stranded, but cut the lead to 7-2.

The Diamondbacks answered, however, with 10 runs in the bottom of the fourth inning including another three-run homer that extended the advantage to 17-2 and ended the game.

Coach Judd Matthes’ squad finishes the year with a 4-13 record.

It is the fewest wins for the Cowboys since winning only four games in 2009. The 13 losses mark the most losses by a Cowboy squad since a 15-loss season in 2006.

Five Cowboy seniors saw their final action in the district tournament – Kimbro, D. Tomberlin, Williams, C. Villerreal and Martin.
