Westmoore senior makes all-state volleyball team

MOORE — The Oklahoma Coaches Association released its All-State volleyball team Friday. The Large West team features six players from the Edmond schools. The only two who do not play for one of the three Edmond high schools are Enid’s Mariah Wagner and Westmoore’s Madison Dobbs.

Dobbs led the Jaguars to a 16-14 record her senior season before losing to No. 6 Union in the regional tournament.

The All-State game will be played during All-State week July 28-Aug. 2 in the Tulsa area.

The Oklahoma Fastpitch Softball coaches Association also announced the 2012 Region 5 All-Region team. Moore leads the way with three players making the first team. They include Hannah Lynch, Caiti Hall and Qiana Harrison. Norman’s Summer Leitka, Norman North’s Taylor Hartman, Westmoore’s Mariah Peace and Southmoore’s Braeden Bradshaw also made the first team.

Katelyn Dollard (North), Jazmine White (MHS), Raeven Clark (WMH), Hanna Schoonmaker (SMH), Autumn Ackerman (SMH), Brittney O’Neill (North), Erin Sanders (WMH) and Sunni Feexico (NHS) comprise the second team. Former Norman coach Tim Gonzales was named the all-region coach of the year.

Bears come up just short :After turning a corner this season in Noble, the Bears came up just a few plays short in their attempt to return to the postseason. Noble traveled to Shawnee on Friday with a playoff berth on the line, but Shawnee came away with a 58-34 victory to end the Bears’ season.

The final score doesn’t reflect how competitive the game was. The Bears went into the locker room at halftime on top, but fell behind in the second half and had to take increasingly dangerous chances to try and climb back into the game. That resulted in a failed fourth-down conversion and an interception that allowed Shawnee to pull away in the game’s final minutes.
