oklahomaOklahoma at South Central Conference playoffs.

Fox 80 Oklahoma 43 - Quarterfinals
Maysville 76 Oklahoma 48 - Consolation Semifinals

At the South Central Conference playoffs, we lost to Fox 80-43 in the quarterfinals and were eliminated from the tournament with a 80-43 loss to Maysville in the consolation semifinals. We cut our Christmas Break short due to the league tournament this past weekend. I am pleased to see the outcome of my young team playing hard in these two games. Most hearing schools had their practice time during the holidays while we couldn’t due to distance. I look forward to playing them again Monday and Tuesday. (Contributed by Head Coach Chris Reagle)
