CHICKASHA – The Drovers dropped in both games against the No. 11 Oklahoma City Stars in the Thursday afternoon doubleheader at Bill Smith Ballpark.

The Drovers just couldn’t connect at the plate in the first game, which the Stars won 7-0, despite Morgan Bratcher throwing five strikeouts.

Game two seemed to be heading in the same direction, as the Drovers gave up six runs in the first two innings. But the Drovers began their comeback in the bottom of the third.

CHICKASHA – The Drover men’s basketball team had a great season with an NAIA National Tournament trip to top it off, something assistant coach Vinson Metcalf said the team sets out to do each season.

“It’s the same as it’s always been. USAO, since I’ve been here, we have been to the national tournament six of the last 12 years,” he said. “Just making it to the national tournament is a great feat in itself.”
