Owasso stuns Choctaw to take regional crown
By Ryan Horton
As a softball powerhouse, Choctaw always expects to make a push deep into the postseason.
Unfortunately, this year’s season ended early as the Lady Yellowjackets finished one game shy of the state tournament.
Choctaw High School played host to a 6A Regional Tournament Oct. 6-7.
After dominating a first round matchup with Sapulpa, the Lady Jackets shutout Tulsa Union to setup a final showdown with Owasso.
To open the tourney Choctaw blasted Sapulpa, 25-3.
Choctaw then beat Union, 19-0.
The Lady Jackets had momentum going into the championship game, but fell short in a 4-0 decision.
CHS had one more shot as Owasso would have defeat Choctaw twice to take the regional crown.
However, the Rams did just that as they clinched a 7-3 final score.
The Lady Jakcets were regional runner-up, and one win shy of the state tourney.
Owasso had beaten Sapulpa 12-0 and Union 9-1 to go 4-0 at the tourney, and advance to state with a 28-8 overall record.
Choctaw went 2-2 at the regional to finish the year 16-13 overall.
