YUKON — Latta senior leader Trent Smith was, to say the least, frustrated while spending most of his time on the bench during the first half of a Class 2A State semifinal matchup with Hooker Friday night at Yukon High School. Smith took those frustrations out on the Bulldogs in the second half. The Latta playmaker scored 21 of his game-high 25 points over the final two quarters and stole a last-second inbound pass by Hooker as the buzzer sound to help the second-ranked Panthers trip No. 3 Hooker 42-41.

AMBER — Latta senior Shaylee Senkel has a reputation. But don’t worry, it’s a good one.
Senkel is known to be one of the top on-ball defenders in Class 2A girls basketball. But her offense has been kind of an afterthought.
That is, until now.

Week 4 of the Oklahoma High School Prep Football Season has one of our SKORDLE Game of the Week crews traveling to Marlow as the Outlaws host Pauls Valley.
First of all...huge game. Both teams are undefeated and - once again - District 3A-2 looks to be super-competitive this year so the winner of this game gets a big leg up.
Off the field....
Marlow is home to some notable alumni - if you did not know - some of whom I have included in the list below.

How great is it that we are at this point of the football season where we now have the high school, college and NFL seasons all rocking and rolling?!
I hope everyone is enjoying all the football almost every night of the week now.
Here in Cashion, Oklahoma, it is homecoming week and I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to introduce everyone to our new and awesome pizza place, Flour and Fennel.
This local and homemade pizza has become very popular with locals and anyone who happens to be visiting our area.
If you are visiting Cashion for a ballgame, school event, or just wanting to take a short drive out from the metro, I would highly recommend visiting Flour and Fennel for a great pizza eating experience.
At Flour and Fennel, the star of the show for me is the crust!
Their pizza dough is prepared fresh daily and they offer two different crust styles: New York and Detroit.
