Okeene hosts grade school tournament
Last week, Okeene kicked off basketball season with their 2018 Grade School Tournament for fifth and sixth graders. Schools from surrounding towns sent their teams to start off hoops season on the right foot, and for the hometown Whippets, that meant splitting both their boys’ and girls’ squads into two units. The Whippets chose to put their sixth graders on one team and their fifth graders on the other, and as expected, the older team enjoyed most of the success.
Both fifth grade teams went 0-2 in the tournament, losing to Watonga on Tuesday and Cimarron on Wednesday. The boys lost the opener to the Eagles 44-10. Corbin Cagle scored five points in the contest, while Peyton Ebers added three and William Woolley scored two. They lost 20-8 in the second game to Cimarron, while Ebers, Cagle, Wooley, and Parker Noll each had a basket. For the girls, Watonga shut them out 35-0, before the Lady Whippets dropped their second game 27-2 against the Lady Blazers as McBride scored their only basket.
