Cordell Lady Blue Devils End Season At Regional Tournament

“They were bigger and very physical, but we had a chance to win right up until that final buzzer,” said Cordell Head Coach Jana Rogers of the Lady Blue Devil elimination game loss to Mooreland on Friday, February 23, 2018.

“Mooreland is a tough team who really take it to you every play,” Rogers said. “Our defense kept us in the game even when we couldn’t score. I thought all through the game if we could get ahead, even by a point or two, we would win. We would tie it, but just couldn’t ever pull ahead.”

Home Country

By Slim Randles

The guys were outside at the sale barn, sipping coffee in Styrofoam cups and waiting for someone to say something. Inside, the pitch of the auctioneer was heralding the glories of an old spavined milk cow, and fevered cattlemen were waving cards with numbers on them.

It was quieter outside.

House Report

By State Representative Todd Russ

The state Board of Equalization met last week to certify revenue the Legislature can appropriate for the Fiscal Year 2019 budget.

The board estimates we will have a budget gap of about $167 million. This represents the difference between what was appropriated for Fiscal Year 2018 and what should be available for FY19. This is actually great news. Last fall, the gap was estimated at $800 million. Just two years ago, it was $1.3 billion. It’s shrinking by the day. By the time we reach a budget agreement for the coming fiscal year, the gap may be much lower.

Lady Blue Devils Are Tri-County Consolation Champs

“It was a good week,” said Cordell Head Coach Jana Rogers of her team’s Consolation Championship at the Tri-County Tournament.

Rogers made the statement in spite of a 40 to 46 first round loss to Hobart.

“They (Hobart) beat us in the first game of the season and we were looking forward to seeing them again,” she said. “We had the game tied with 2.5 minutes left, but a couple of mental breakdowns and a missed play cost us the win.”

Rogers said the Lady Blue Devils rebounded pretty well and had a balanced scoring effort.

The score was knotted at 11 at the end of the first period, with Cordell trailing 19 to 23 at halftime. Cordell outscored Hobart 11 to 7 in the third period to tie the score at 30 going into the final period.

Blue Devils Take Third Place At Tri-County Tournament

It took four overtimes in three games, but the Cordell Blue Devils put together a great game plan to take third place in the annual Tri-County Tournament.

“I thought we played better in all three games of the tournament,” said Cordell Head Coach Brandon Gallagher. “We still had some mistakes that cost us at times, but we did some really good things.”

When asked what those “good things” were, Gallagher said, “We had more balanced scoring, with some other guys getting involved with putting points on the board. We also rebounded really well, which has a positive impact on all parts of the game. We also didn’t have as many turnovers. All those are things we can control.”

The Blue Devils opened play against Mangum and advanced in the winner’s bracket with a 65 to 57 win.

A Word From The Superintendent

By Brad Overton

With the beginning of the legislative session a little more than a week away, Oklahomans find themselves in need of solutions. Solutions often don’t come easy, and the issues we are currently facing are more challenging than ever.

With so many challenges that our state is facing, I’ll try to keep my thoughts on the issues that face public education. In my opinion, the overall funding of public education is insufficient. This lack of funding hits education in several different ways.
