Waurika Gets Track Season Started at Velma-Alma Meet


It has been a slow start to the track season for coach Joe Masoner and the Eagle and Lady Eagle thinclads.

Waurika competed in the Velma-Alma Invitational on March 8 and the Lady Eagles were able to tie for fourth place in the meet that was won by the host school.

Waurika finished in a tie with Maysville and each school had 42 points in the meet.

The Waurika boys did not score at the meet.

Lexie Streeter and Asia Smith each picked up gold medals for the Lady Eagles.

Streeter topped the field in the 3,200 meters with a time of 13:50.68.

In the 800 meter run, Smith picked up first place with a time of 2:43.72.

The 3,200-meter relay team for the Lady Eagles finished in fourth place in the race. The squad posted a time of 11:59.78. The Lady Eagles did not place in this event in any meet last season.

The 1,600-meter relay team for the Lady Eagles finished in sixth place with a time of 5:17.85. In 2017, the Lady Eagles did not place in this event.

Rounding out the placers for the Lady Eagles was a silver medal performance by Madison Roberson in the shot put. Her best toss was measured at 32-10.

Waurika will be back in action on the track on Tuesday when they travel to Alex for competition with other eight-man football schools.

The Waurika thinclads will return to Alex on April 5 for the Alex Invitational which will feature schools of various size.

Cowgirl Softballers Struggle to Find Opponents


Ryan’s slow-pitch softball team has faced a couple of hurdles in getting the 2018 season into full swing.

The Cowgirls of coach Stan Mueggenborg have inherited quite a bit of extra practice time from having scheduled opponents back out of games because they did not have enough players.

The Cowgirls are slated to get back in action Monday with a game against Comanche on Larry Ninman Field at the Bob Givens Sports Complex.

Ryan’s first game was cancelled because of previously schedule school conflicts.

And, Temple and Big Pasture, who were both on the Cowgirl slate for last week, do not have enough players to field a slow-pitch softball team.

That means the Cowgirls have only played one game – an 11-10 loss to Grandfield.

In addition to the contest with Comanche, the Cowgirls are scheduled to take on Geronimo at home one week from today.
