MOORE — Westmoore competed in the annual OU fastpitch tournament over the weekend. It came away two losses , but coach Jenny Rollins was not disappointed in everything she saw.

“We lost one game in pool play to Jenks, and then came back to win four straight which put us playing in the Silver Bracket play versus Hilldale,” Rollins said. “We did not have a very good showing in our final game, but are looking forward to improving on the things we did not do well that game and having a strong week of district play.”

The Jaguars got strong play during the tourney from Hunter Strickland, Shelby Baker and Sydnee Ramsey.

Westmoore (17-5) heads into this week with tough schedule to go through. They include games against Owasso, Enid and Broken Arrow.

“This is a tough week of district play,” Rollins said. “Traveling east can take a toll on players but we have handled it pretty well up to this point. This is a big week for us and I think we learned some things about ourselves during the OU tournament that will help us be better prepared for the next few weeks of regular season. We have a solid group of athletes but we are still working to be more consistent.”
