The Okeene Peewee football team welcomed the Seiling Wildcats to town last Tuesday for a matchup on the gridiron. Thanks to a big first half for the Whippets, Okeene was able to cruise to a 40-16 victory over the Wildcats.
After being quarantined at home since September 24, the Okeene Junior High football team returned to both the classroom and the gridiron last Tuesday. The Whippets welcomed the Geary Bison to town, but unfortunately lost by a score of 30-8.
The Okeene Whippets have had a rough start to October, as a mandatory quarantine for the high school and junior saw their game to Garber cancelled two weeks ago. Still, the Whippets returned to the grid iron last Friday to take on the Red Devils.
Keely Hussey started the season off as Okeene’s shortstop, but quickly became their ace on the mound. Hussey also batted lead-off for Okeene as a hitter that could beat out a soft grounder just as easy as she could drive one to the fence. Hussey will play for Team Hatfi eld in the All-Conference Game. The story on that game will be available in next week’s copy of the Okeene Record.
