2017 district champs
4A-1: Heritage Hall - Everyone
should have seen it coming from the start. Heritage Hall took down John
Marshall -- who went on to win the Class 3A title -- in the first week
of the season, and the Chargers just stampeded their way through 4A-1,
as well. Clinton came the closest to knocking off Heritage Hall, 28-24,
in week four but Heritage Hall ended up polishing off a 14-0 campaign
with a title game victory over Ada.
4A-2: Ada - The
Cougars endured some brutal losses to Ardmore and Carl Albert in
non-district play, but it prepared Ada for what was up ahead in 4A-2
play. The Cougars' only blemish in district competition was to Tuttle,
but Ada ended up knocking off Blanchard for the tiebreaker at the end of
the year when both finished atop the standings. Then Ada went on to
knock off Oologah in the quarterfinals, and the Cougars marched all the
way to the title game, where Heritage Hall ended up prevailing.
4A-3: Wagoner - Few figured there'd be many teams to stand between Wagoner and Heritage Hall ultimately meeting in the 4A title game. The Bulldogs owned the state's longest winning streak (48) after another unbeaten run through 4A-3 and a first round playoff victory over Poteau. But trouble arrived in the form of Blanchard, who ended the Bulldogs' unbeaten run at Odom Stadium.
