Early dominance leads to a pair of wins for young Whippets
The Okeene fifth and sixth-graders traveled to Geary last week for a matchup with the Bison in their first action since the season-opening tournament. The trip turned out to be a good one as the Lady Whippets won 22-14, and the boys cruised by a score of 27-12 for the sweep.
In the girls’ contest, Okeene jumped out to an early lead thanks to firstquarter baskets from Ava McCollum, Valeria Martinez and Cassandra Hirajosa. The Lady Whippets then shutout Geary in the second quarter to take a 11-4 lead into the half.
From there, the Lady Bison made a push at the lead with 10 points in the third quarter. Still, Okeene was able to withstand the big quarter, and padded their lead in the fourth to close out the victory.
