Whippets hang on to third seed despite falling to Waukomis, host Canton in playoffs

The Okeene Whippets closed out the regular season last Friday with a surprising 28-22 loss to the visiting Waukomis Chiefs. With the playoffs right around the corner, the Whippets were hoping to win their thirdstraight game to ride a winning streak into the postseason, but that plan ran into some complications.

Second-half surge boosts Okeene over Pond Creek-Hunter

The Okeene Whippets were able to earn their first win in district play last Friday with their 28-10 victory Pond Creek-Hunter. The win vaults Okeene up to third in the district with a record of 1-2, and they are now 2-5 overall on the season. Even more impressive is they earned the victory despite not having Coach Reese Brickman at practice all week, as Brickman was quarantined at his home with the coronavirus.
