Prep notebook: Gigger to sign with OCU

MOORE — Edmond Memorial cleaned house Thursday at the Mid-State Track and Field Championships. The Lady Bulldogs (217) won by 100 points over second place Norman while the boys (209) had 108 more points than Westmoore (101).

While the Jaguars didn’t win the team title, it did run away with another victory in 800-meter relay. According to senior Addison Staggs, the Jags are the top-ranked relay team in the state in the 800-meter relay.

The Southmoore boys ended the night with a victory in the 400-meter relay.

Both teams have a chance to do well at state, if they can make it out of the regional meet.

Southmoore will compete at Norman High along with NHS, Lawton, Norman North, Putnam City, Putnam City West and US Grant.

Westmoore and Moore are heading to Edmond North along with Choctaw, Edmond Santa Fe, Eisenhower, Midwest City and Yukon. Both meets will take place May 4.

State track is at Yukon High May 10-11.

OCU bound: Moore High senior Dorian Gigger announced he will be signing a National Letter of Intent May 14 with Oklahoma City University.

Gigger said he has interest from Northwestern State, New Orleans, St. Gregory, Oral Roberts and Northern Oklahoma. But he felt like Oklahoma City was the best fit for me.

“I picked OCU because its a great academic school first of all,” Gigger said. “They specialize in business. And also I feel like coach (Dionne) Phelps is a real good coach. He will help me develop and get better. I can still go and play basketball after college or I can go ahead and start my own business like I want to do.”

Gigger had a solid career with the Lions under coach Aaron Howell. But it was during his senior season that he really exploded. He became the team’s focal point on both ends of the court as he average almost 15 points and 11 rebounds a game.

“It’s a blessing,” Gigger said. “A lot of kids don’t get the opportunity. I’m just blessed to have the opportunity to get multiple schools looking at me and have my own choice. I’m just going to do what my parents tell me to do, get my degree and just stay focused. Continue with my life.”
