Women compete in first-annual striper bass tournament

Lake Texoma’s first womenonly fishing tournament kicked off June 8 with 140 participants.

The contestants of the first annual Southern Striper Babes 2019 tournament mostly originated from Oklahoma and Texas, but some women came from as far away as New England.

The event started 30 minutes before dawn at Highport Marina and the contestants were able to check in their fish to measure until 12:30 p.m.

The categories for the tournament included Lady Queen Angler (the oldest contestant), Princess Angler (the youngest contestant) and first through third for guided and non-guided individual and combined-team longest fish.

Mary Duncan, winner of the Lady Queen Angler, formed Marshall County’s only team, the Gutsy Gals. Her team won two awards: the Lady Queen Angler by Duncan, and the Biggest Fish Winner by Linda Reeves.

First Annual Mack Stafford Memorial Softball Tournament kicks off the National Sand Bass Festival

I have never liked playing softball. Swinging a bat that, at times, was bigger than me was not my idea of fun. But on Saturday, June 1, I watched people from our area and beyond come together to remember Mack Stafford.

I asked Donny Raley, Chairman of the National Sand Bass Festival committee, who was Mack Stafford to you? Donny replied, “When I think of the Sand Bass Festival, I immediately think of the Stafford family. Carol, the father of Mack and Bink, was one of the original Sand Bass committee members .. a founding father, so to speak.”

“As long as there has been a Sand Bass Festival, there has been a Stafford on the planning committee,” Raley continued. “As a young member of the Sand Bass Festival Committee back in the late 1980’s, Mack was like Mr. Sand Bass to me. He was on the Sand Bass Committee during the original festival. In fact, he was the Chairman during the final year of the original festival in 1976.”

SPRINGING INTO FOOTBALL

As the old saying goes, football season never really ends. That is the case for the Madill Wildcats, who started their second week of spring practice on May

20.

On a windy spring day, dozens of players and coaches continued work ahead of their second season under head football coach Todd Vargas.

Last season, the Wildcats finished with a 4-6 record, their first under Vargas and their first in Class 4A.

Vargas said the team is working a few things this spring.

“Number one, we’re trying to build off what we did last year,” He said. “We have a lot of returning starters. I know off hand, on offense we have eight. We have returning starters on defense. Offensively, we’re not trying to add anything. We’re trying to get better. From where we were last year to where we are now is just leaps and bounds. It’s fun. We’re not starting from ground zero. We actually have a base on us. That’s been great.”

Heartbreak at State

In a game that is sure to go down as an instant classic, the Atoka Wampus Cats beat the Kingston Redskins 9 to 7 in the Class 3A Semifinal on May 10 at Edmond Memorial High School.

While statistics tell much of the story of this game, it turned on a few plays and sheer luck.

When the top of the seventh inning started, Kingston was sitting on a 7 to 4 lead. The Redskins were three outs away from a berth in the Class 3A State Championship Game.

Kingston head coach, Darron Henson, looked to secure the win by handing the ball to senior pitcher Conner Brister to start the seventh inning.

The tide quickly turned in the Wampus Cats’ favor as the leadoff hitter, junior pitcher Cade Carroll, reached on an error by Kingston shortstop, Ty Herndon.

Heartbreaking End to Wildcat Soccer Season

Instead of playing under the lights Friday night, because of the weather, the MHS Soccer Team played under cloudy conditions on Saturday, May 4.

It was an electrifying quarterfinal game against the Crooked Oak Ruf-Nex. Coach Cortes, head coach for the Wildcats, said his team was ready to play on Friday evening or Saturday. “I don’t believe having the game Saturday made any difference in the outcome.

The team worked all season to be ready for any scheduled changes and any unforeseen circumstances.”After many attempted shots at the goal by the Wildcats, the Ruf-Nex got on the board first with No. 2, Juan Rodarte, scoring the first goal.
