The Cordell Lady Blue Devils split two games last week, softening the blow of Tuesday’s loss with a homecoming triumph Friday evening.
“We had a great team win on Friday. It was probably the best shooting percentage game we’ve had all year. It was a fun game, the girls kept their composure and played confidently. I was very proud of all of them for working together, having fun and showing Sayre what we could do,” said Head Coach Jana Rogers.
Rogers was satisfied with the girls’ turnaround, and hopes they will keep up the hard work.
“All in all, from Tuesday to Friday, I saw two totally different teams. I hope I see Friday’s team from now on,” said Rogers.

Western Conference Tournament in Kingfisher
“To say the least it has been an interesting year. There have been many postponements, cancellations, and other interruptions that have made this season challenging. That being said, we finally had an opportunity to get on the mat and try to build some momentum going into the last half of the season,” coach Dillon Ball said “I was very proud of how our young men competed this past weekend. We were short on numbers, but those that did wrestle gave great effort. We have a very young group of JH wrestlers this year and they are showing great promise for the future. Our high school guys wrestled hard as well. The junior high wrestlers who competed were Jackson Eldridge at 106, Tucker Priebe at 170, and Samuel Lindsey at 285. The high school wrestlers who competed were Colton Lowry at 120, Billy Scott at 132, and Michael Rennison at 170.”
