All-state hoops still on tap at WMH

MOORE — Despite the effects of the tornado that swept through Moore May 20, the Oklahoma Girls Basketball Association All-State game is still set for Saturday at Westmoore High. The event will feature three games throughout the day.

Southmoore’s Kayla Tucker is playing on the large West squad which will take on the Large East at 1:30 p.m. Norman’s Bethany Cox is also a member of the Large West.

The Middle East vs Middle West take the court at 3:30 p.m. and the Small East vs Small West play at 5:30 p.m.

Soccer camp for kids: Oklahoma Christian University will offer free admission to its upcoming soccer day camp for children to students from two Moore schools destroyed by the May 20 tornado, OC women’s coach Randall Robison said Tuesday.

Students from Plaza Towers Elementary and Briarwood Elementary can register for the Eagles Day Camp portion of the OC Soccer Academy through a special email link located on the camp’s home page, . The camp will run from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. June 10-13 and will be held on the OC campus in north Oklahoma City.

“If it helps two or 200, we’re hopeful that the camp can provide a little break and a few smiles to the kids of these schools,” Robison said. “There are a number of area coaches eager to volunteer their time for this camp and several coaches in the Dallas area also have expressed an interest.”

Camps will be staffed by OC soccer coaches and men’s and women’s players. Campers will receive a camp soccer ball and T-shirt. All students ages 5-12 are welcome, although registration is required. Contact Robison at or at 314-6141 for more information.

Pierce nabs honor: Oklahoma Christian shortstop Kendra Pierce was named to the All-National Christian College Athletic Association Central Region softball honor team. Pierce, a sophomore from Westmoore, hit a team-high .418 with five home runs and 54 RBIs in only 42 games. She led the Heartland Conference in RBIs and was third in hitting, sixth in on-base percentage (.448), third in hits (61), second in doubles (22) and third in total bases.

Pierce earlier made the Heartland’s second-team all-conference list. The Lady Eagles finished 22-22 this season, falling to Central Baptist (Ark.) in the NCCAA Central Region title game.
