In a difficult situation, the Blue Devils just did not look ready to take on the thirteenth-ranked team in the state on opening day, as they lost to Mangum 9-0 Monday, March 24.

Parsons Named To All-State Team

After a wildly successful season, the awards continue to pile up for the Cordell Lady Blue Devils, as Gabbie Parsons was named to the All-State team, Parsons, Sydnee Sealey and Morgen Price were named to the All-Region team, and Parsons, Sealey, Price, Cherokee Mitchell and Lauren Russ were named All-District. Parsons was also named co-MVP of the district. Parsons, who was earlier named to the Daily Oklahoman’s All-State Tournament team, was the offensive catalyst for the Lady Blue Devils throughout the season, regularly leading the team in points. Her ability to score from anywhere on the floor was crucial for the Lady Blue Devils in the playoffs, when transition buckets were less common. She also provided solid defense, rebounding and ball-handling.

As winter sports ended their seasons, the Cordell Lady Blue Devils’ soccer team was hard at work, defeating Altus JV 6-0 in the season opener Tuesday, March 11. Layne Balzer and Crimson Zanghi led the scoring with two goals a piece. Brooke Fletcher and Kaitlyn Kuehne both scored once. Head coach Darrin Taylor was more interested in the team’s future than how they performed in their season opener, saying, “They played well, but they are definitely going to get better.” The team will have their next opportunity to improve Monday, March 24, with a match against Bridge Creek. The match will be in Cordell at 6:00 p.m. The Junior High boys and girls teams, meanwhile, will start their season Tuesday, March 25, at Weatherford.
