Cowboy Classic Baseball Tourney Has New Look

With only six teams lined up to compete in the Cowboy Classic baseball tournament the tourney will engage in pool play instead of the traditional bracket format.

 The tournament was set to get under way this morning with Thackerville taking on Big Pasture to be followed by Thackerville and Grandfield at 12 noon. Grandfield was to have met Big Pasture today at 2 p.m. to complete the pool play for Pool A.

 Pool B will begin play at 4 p.m. today with Waurika taking on Temple at 4 p.m. That contest will be followed by Ryan meeting Temple at 6 p.m. and the day will conclude with Ryan matching up with Waurika at 8 p.m.

 All the games will be played on Larry Ninman Field at the Bob Givens Sports Complex.

 The field for this year’s tournament is not a strong one, so any of the schools could rise up and claim the tournament title.

 Thackerville is probably the favorite to take the crown for this tournament that is in its fifth year.

 The Wildcats’ record is unknown, but they did win their own invitational tourney a couple of weeks ago defeating Ringling in the championship game, 15-11.

 Thackerville’s pool opponents have only two wins between them. Big Pasture is 2-1 on the year heading into games earlier this week, while Grandfield is 0-9 not including a match up earlier this week with Chattanooga.

 It is like the opponent in the championship game for Thackerville will be Waurika, however, the Eagles come into this tournament with a 2-9 mark not including games earlier this week with Wilson and Comanche.

 The Eagles’ pool opponents have only one victory between them. The Cowboys are 1-5 on the year not including the contest with Big Pasture scheduled for earlier this week. Temple is 0-6 not including games earlier this week with Empire and Cyril.

 The tournament will take Friday off and will be completed on Saturday.

 The two third place teams from each pool will battle for fifth place on Saturday at noon, while the two second-place squads will play for the tournament’s third place at 2 p.m. Saturday.

 The championship game will pit the two pool winners and the first pitch is slated for 4 p.m. on Saturday.

 In event of ties in the pool play, they will be decided in four ways. The first will be head-to-head competition and the second will be runs allowed by each team that is tied. If those two do not decide things, the third tie-breaker is runs allowed in the first inning of play.

 The fourth tie-breaker is a coin flip.

 Be sure and check social media or your local school to see if weather played a role in the schedule.

Cowgirl Softball Squad Picks Up Pair of Victories

0

 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.

 In the first game with Big Pasture, the Cowgirls captured a 4-0 victory over the Lady Rangers.

 Two singles by Justyce Keith and Brooklyn Charmasson helped the Cowgirls score two runs in the top of the second.

 Cassy Charmasson reached base in the top of the third and came around to score after a base hit by Samantha Good gave the Cowgirls a 3-0 advantage.

 In the top of the fourth, the Cowgirls added to the lead as Randi Linton and came around to score to put the Cowgirls up, 4-0.

 B. Charmasson picked up the shut out win for the Cowgirls and survived seven stranded base runners by the Lady Rangers.

 Later the same day the Cowgirls dropped a 14-2 decision to Thackerville as the Lady Wildcats scored five runs in the first inning and six more in the second inning.

 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.

 Madison Rhodes, Kenzie Lewis and Linton all reached base for the Cowgirls and scored. The Cowgirls also stranded two runs in the inning.

 The Cowgirls added to the lead in the top of the sixth as Lewis, Good and Guzman each circled the bases for Ryan giving the Cowgirls a 6-1 lead.

 Big Pasture managed two runs in the bottom of the inning as seven batters came to the plate, but the Cowgirls ended the rally.

 Last Thursday the Cowgirls got into a slugfest with Grandfield and dropped a 21-10 decision.

 Ryan jumped out to a 2-0 lead as Lewis and Linton reached base and scored. Abbie Bolin added a basehit, but the Cowgirls could not do any more damage.

 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.

 The Cowgirls tried to extend the game, but left the bases loaded and the game ended on the run rule.

 Ryan is now 2-4 on the year heading into competition at the Fletcher Tournament that begins play today (Thursday).

 The Cowgirls were to have met Verden in the first game.

 The host school, Verden, Chickasha, Big Pasture and Empire are among some of the teams in the tourney.

Four Competitors Lead Cowgirls To Fourth Place Finish

0

Only four competitors made up the Ryan Cowgirl track squad last Friday at the Waurika Eight-Man Invitational, but those athletes turned in some impressive performances.

 The Cowgirls finished fourth in the team race with 80 points – just a single point behind third-place Bray-Doyle. Empire won the meet with 138 points.

 Leading the way as they have all season, the 3,200-meter relay team of Lilybet Harmon, Lily York, Holland Carter and Juliet Spangler earned the gold medal with a time of 11:44.33. The time is one of the best posted in the event among Class A competitors this season.

 That time broke the school record of 11:56.76 set just a couple of weeks earlier at the Cache Invitational.

 The same four girls also competed in the 1,600-meter relay and the team narrowly missed setting the school mark for the second time this season.

 Harmon, York, Carter and Spangler recorded a time of 5:13.59, which was good enough for second place and was just behind the school mark of 5:12.17 set just a few days before at the Elgin Invitational.

 Spangler had the top individual performance by the Cowgirls with a first-place finish in the 1,600 meters. Her time of 6:30.43 set a meet record and it is the sixth best time in school history, but just off her best time of the 2018 season.

 Harmon earned a bronze medal in the 1,600 meters with a time of 6:52.46 and York was just behind her in fourth place with a time of 7:04.47.

 Carter turned in her best performance of the season in the 800 meters and finished second in the meet with a time of 2:48.81. Harmon finished right behind Carter in the event to earn a bronze medal with a time of 2:57.79.

 In the 3,200 meters, Spangler earned a third-place finish with a time of 14:33.54. York was fourth in the same event with a time of 15:19.77.

 The 80 points scored by the Cowgirls is the second highest total ever in a meet. The highest point total ever for the Cowgirls is 87 points in last year’s Waurika Eight-Man Invitational.

 Walker Rawlings competed in the meet for the Cowboys and he came away with points in both the shot put and discus.

 Rawlings was third in the discus with a throw of 108-9 and he earned fifth place in the shot put with a toss of 37-6.

 That gave Ryan eight points in the meet to finish ninth – just one point behind eighth-place Temple.

 The Cowboys and Cowgirls will compete Saturday in Waurika’s Red River Invitational (weather permitting) and will also be in action Tuesday at the Velma-Alma Comet Invitational.

 The junior high track squads also had good performances at the Waurika Eight-Man Invitational. The Cowboys finished third in the meet with 80 points, which was nine points behind runner up Tipton and well behind team champion Fox who finished with 134 points.

 The Cowgirl squad finished with 56 points which was good enough for a fifth-place tie with Fox in the team race. Bray-Doyle was the team champion with 102 points.

 The Cowboys were led by the gold-medal performances of Jullian Rodriguez in the 3,200 meters and Trey Bryant in the shot put.

 Rodriguez also finished second in the 1,600 meters and Bryant was second in the discus.

 Tommy Self earned a silver medal in the 3,200 meters and Ethan Burden was right behind to gain a bronze medal for the Cowboys.

 Caleb Perrin had a second place finish in the shot put and placed fourth in the discus.

 Mason Adsit was the other medal winner for the Cowboys with a third-place finish in the 1,600 meters. Perrin was also fourth in the 1,600 meters.

 Self also scored points for the Cowboys in the long jump with a fifth place finish.

 For the Cowgirls, Katlynn Dabbs earned three gold medals in the meet. She was the top runner in the 800 meters, 1,600 meters and 3,200 meters.

 Alicen Williams also earned a silver medal in the 3,200 meters and a bronze finish in the 800 meters. She also scored points with a fifth-place finish in the 1,600 meters.

 Whittany Spangler rounded out the medal winners for the Cowgirls with a bronze medal finish in the 3,200 meters. She was also fourth in the 800 meters.

Cowgirl 3,200-Meter Relay Squad Sets School Mark

In only their second outing of the outdoor track season, the Ryan Cowgirls’ 3,200-meter relay team turned in a record-breaking performance at the Cache Invitational last Thursday at Cache High School.

 The relay team of Lilybet Harmon, Lily York, Holland Carter and Juliet Spangler smashed the school record with a time of 11:56.76 – besting the old mark by nearly 11 seconds that was set in the 1990 Southern Eight Conference track meet.

 The Cowgirls, however, could manage only a fourth place finish in the 3,200-meter relay in a tough meet that featured a large and small school division.

 The small school division was comprised of schools from Class 4A down to Class A. Marlow claimed the team title with 137 points – well ahead of runner up Rush Springs that finished with 96 points.

 Ryan tied Hobart for ninth place in the small school division with both teams earning 20 points in the meet.

 Spangler was the only Cowgirl competitor to score in any other events in the meet.

 The Cowgirl sophomore was third in the 1,600 meters with a time of 6:24.33. That time is the third best in school history with Spangler owning the two fastest times in the event.

 Spangler also claimed a bronze medal in the 3,200 meter run with a time of 13:45.36.

 That time is the second best mark in the event in school history and Spangler owns the school record at 13:38.16.

 The Cowgirls’ 1,600-meter relay team of Harmon, York, Carter and Spangler did not score in the meet finishing in seventh place, however, their recorded time of 5:21.37 is thought to be the second best time in school history and just six seconds off the school record of 5:15.0 set in the 1990 Southern Eight Conference meet.

 Other competitors included Carter in the 800 meters who also finished one spot out of earniing points, while Harmon finished 11th in the event.

 York was eighth in the 3,200 meters.

 Sadie Guzman and Justyce Keith also competed for the Cowgirls in the sprint events.

 The Cowgirls will be in action again tomorrow at the Stratford Invitational and will compete on April 13 at the Southern Oklahoma 8-Man Invitational hosted by Waurika.

Cowgirl Softball Squad Ends Season At District Tourney

0

The Ryan Cowgirl slow-pitch softball squad dropped their first two games of the Class 2A district tournament at Central High last Thursday.

Central High, 26-4 on the year, won the district title with an 18-0 victory over Geronimo in the district finals.

The Cowgirls lost to Central High, the top-seed of the tournament and the second-ranked club in Class 2A, 17-1, in the first round and then dropped a 13-1 decision to Geronimo in an elimination game.

Geronimo, who had dropped a first-round 6-4 decision to Snyder, came back to eliminate Snyder, 12-2, to earn the right to face Central High in the finals.

The Cowgirls simply could not retire the Central High batting order in the second inning as the Lady Bronchos sent 16 batters to the plate and scored 14 runs.

The Cowgirls picked up their only run of the game in the third inning as Samantha Good belted a two-out home run. That was the only offense the Cowgirls could generate.

Central High added three more runs in the fourth inning to end the game on the run rule.

In the second game of the tournament, the Cowgirls had a first-inning threat but left the bases loaded.

In the top of the third inning the Bluejays got the bats going and scored all 13 of their runs.

The Cowgirls tried to rally as Good led off the fourth inning by reaching base and eventually scoring, but that would be the extent of the offensive threat for Ryan.

The two losses ended the slow-pitch season for the Cowgirls. Ryan finished the season with a 4-8 record under Stan Mueggenborg.

Four Ryan seniors played their final game for the Cowgirl slow-pitch softball squad – Abbie Bolin, Randi Linton, Kenzie Lewis and Cassidy Charmasson, who was sidelined most of the season with an injury.

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.

District Assignments Made for Baseball And Softball

It does not seem possible that the spring sports slate is getting closer to the post-season.

 With all the crazy weather and canceled events, Ryan or Waurika’s baseball squads and Ryan’s slow-pitch softball squad have been able to get into a routine.

 However, the district tournament assignments for both sports were released last Friday by the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association with tournaments set for next week.

 Ryan’s slow-pitch softball squad, which is 2-3 heading into today’s competition at the Fletcher Tournament, will have a tough district tourney.

 The Cowgirls will travel to Central High and the Lady Bronchos are currently ranked second in Class 2A. Geronimo and Snyder will join the Cowgirls and Central High for the tournament.

 Pairings and the exact time of the tournament, which should be conducted in one day, will be announced.

 Ryan’s baseball squad will also hit the road for the Class B district tournament. Grandfield will serve as the host site and the Cowboys, Bearcats and Olustee/Eldorado will battle for a spot in the regional tourney.

 Waurika has been assigned to the Class A district tourney to be hosted by Central High. The Eagles, Empire and the host school will battle for a right to advance to the regional tourney the following week.

 The district baseball tournaments will begin next Thursday unless the schools agree to a different schedule.

 Assignments for the regional track meet will be released on April 19 but it is likely Ryan and Waurika will be assigned to the regional meet scheduled for Alex on April 28.
