CHICKASHA – Preparation paid off for the Drovers, who fought a tough 40 minutes against one of the nation’s leading teams, No. 4 Southwestern Assemblies of God, and came out with a huge 88-80 upset on Thursday night.
The University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma (9-10, 6-6) led nearly the entire game before defeating the Lions (19-3, 11-2) for first-year Head Coach Vinson Metcalf’s biggest win of his short career.
CHICKASHA – Entering the 2014 season with seven freshmen, six returners and some junior college transfers, the Drover softball team’s blend could prove to be its greatest asset, said Head Coach Jadyn Wallis.
“It looks good. We are going to be young. We’re going to have a mixture of our older kids in the infield with some young mixed in,” she said,
With a fusion of four-year starters and brand new freshman talent, Wallis said she is happy with the make up of the Drovers this season.
