BIXBY TOURNEY: Bixby rolls past Lady Zebras

BIXBY — Timid, yet over-matched ... the Claremore Lady Zebras got behind early and never could recover in a 66-27 semifinals loss to the Bixby Lady Spartans Friday night at the Bixby Tournament.

Claremore trailed 16-4 in the first quarter and 39-8 at halftime. Bixby’s Allie Alvstad controlled the paint and put the Lady Spartans ahead 12-2 in the first quarter with a layup from Christina Devers.

The margin grew to 32-4 as Bixby went on a 16-0 scoring run and Claremore committed 12 turnovers in the first half.

Anna McGuire, Kaleigh Cox, Alex Crews and Bailey Steckline scored two points in the first 16 minutes.

Bixby’s Stevie Parker, who is committed to Tulsa, led the Lady Spartans with 11 points in the opening half.

In the second half, Claremore’s offense found a little consistency and scored 19 points.

Crews and Cox led the Lady Zebras with six points apiece, while Monica Taylor added five. McGuire and Steckline finished with four each and Allison Howell also had two.

Parker led Bixby with a game-high 15 points.

The Lady Zebras (2-2) played Krum, Texas for third place Saturday afternoon.

In the opener, Claremore’s defense got the best of Class 6A Stillwater and the Lady Zebras held on for a 40-35 win.

Freshman guard (Monica) Taylor paced the Lady Zebras with nine points, while Ashlyn Glenn added eight and McGuire finished with seven. Cox also had five points.

    When Claremore’s Matt Whatley takes his place behind the plate tonight in the Oklahoma Coaches Association Large School East-West All-State baseball game, the former Zebra catcher will be right at home.
    Whatley, who started four years as the catcher for the Zebras, finds his final high school baseball game taking place in his future college ballpark.
    Last November, Whatley and his long-time friend, Bryce Howe, signed NCAA Division I baseball scholarships to play for the Oral Roberts University Golden Eagles.
    Tonight, those dreams come true for Whatley and Jenks outfielder Cadon Owens, who will be joining his former Bearcats teammate on the East squad. Also, Verdigris' Ryan Skalnik will start at third base for the Large East All-State team.
