CHICKASHA – The Sooner Athletic Conference coaches have picked the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma men’s basketball team to finish the season eighth in the conference, according to the preseason coaches’ poll released this week.

“I've never pay any attention to the pre-season ranking,” said Head Coach Vinson Metcalf, who is starting his first season at the helm of the program. “This conference from top to bottom is tough. You have to play the games.”

CHICKASHA – The men’s cross country team came out at the OBU Invitational on Saturday, to build on the momentum they got at the previous meet in the OSU Cowboy Jamboree.

The Drovers did just that by having all members beating their previous 8-kilometer time of the season.

The Drovers placed three runners at the race, which doesn’t qualify them for a team score, as a team must have five runners to receive team points.

The lead runner for the Drovers was Elias Poolaw, who scored his best 8-kilometer time of the season with a time of 30:37.
