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.
