CHICKASHA – Having the tennis program cut at East Central may have been the best thing that ever happened to Phil Barnes.

As a junior in 1978 all of a sudden seeking a new place to play tennis, Barnes found USAO. And from there, his life just fell into place.

“I wouldn’t be where I’m at if I hadn’t gone to USAO. There’s no question about it,” Barnes said. “You don’t think so at the time at you are being molded, but that’s why I am where I am.”

CHICKASHA – As the leaves turn from a beautiful green to a crisp gold, Drover spirit takes over campus and, frankly, Madness sets in as fans prepare for the start of Drover basketball.

Drover Madness, USAO’s annual basketball pep rally, will open basketball season at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 30 in the USAO Fieldhouse.

“It’s a fun event that kicks off the basketball season,” said Coach Brisco McPherson, who first implemented the event 18 years ago. “And, of course, there’s free T-shirts and free food involved. Plus, you get to know both teams in a fun environment.”
