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.

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.
