CHICKASHA – Both Drover baseball and softball programs have teamed up with USAO’s Drovers Against Cancer to host the annual Pink Out Cancer games this weekend at Bill Smith Ballpark.
This is the third year the Drover softball team has had such a game and the second year for USAO’s baseball team. Drovers Against Cancer has organized a pink game for soccer and basketball already this school year.
Fielding only 16 participants, the scholastic team from Deer Creek High School was “the little team that could” as it scored the first place trophy at the 2013 USAO Scholastic Meet. The scholastic meet is one of several events held on the first Thursday in April as part of the university’s Spring Triad.
Three days of precipitation and standing water in the Oval led to the first ever “rained out” Montmartre Chalk Art Festival but the yearly scholastic meet and Droverstock music festival went on as planned.
CHICKASHA – The Drovers couldn’t top Southwestern Oklahoma State, who compete in the NCAA Division II, in a home game on Tuesday afternoon.
After a rough fifth inning, the Drovers (29-12) couldn’t overcome the Bulldogs and fell 6-3.
All three of the Drovers’ runs came off of hits outside the park. First, in the fourth inning, centerfielder Brian Vigo hit his 11th home run of the season to score himself and Heath Wilda, USAO’s third baseman.
Alexis Brown’s “Owl-ways & Forever” won the Best in Show award in the Innovations 2013 art competition. The awards, which were given out March 18, featured work submitted from 13 different schools.
More than 90 students faced off recently at Innovations, an annual high school art competition held at the University of Science and Arts. Students from high schools around the state competed in the art competition held exclusively for high school juniors and seniors.
