  • DSC_8968web.jpg District Champs!

    “Champions don’t talk, they just perform.”
    The Claremore High School freshmen Zebras brought home the Metro Lakes title last Monday night at Bishop Kelley, thanks to the “Heisman-like” performance of all-purpose standout Dustin Basks.
    Basks scored Claremore’s first 20 points on a pass play, a kickoff return and an interception return — all in the first half.
    Looking like former Michigan Wolverine sensation Charles Woodson, Basks proved to be ‘unstoppable’ while leading the Zebras to a 33-13 victory over the previously unbeaten Comets.
