Guymon Volleyball Makes First Ever State Appearance
KSCB News - October 12, 2010 12:00 am
Guymon made history this fall. The GHS volleyball team is the first in school history to make it to state. They beat Carl Albert last week in El Reno to qualify. They trailed the final set 1-9 but came back and won 16-14. Guymon is a senior oriented team which went 27-6 and played regionals with a chip on their shoulders. Guymon was ranked seventh and deserving of hosting regionals, but the OSSAA decided that Guymon was too far for the other three (Carl Albert, El Reno, and Capitol Hill) to travel. Guymon’s seniors are Vanessa DeWilde, Myca Hunter, Jill Brooks, Chanell Bowers, lauren Gibson, Kalisa Mora, Brenna Hutchins, jr. Charrissa Pierce, and so. Kate Strickland.
Guymon is ranked sixth and plays number three Booker T. Washington Friday at 2:30 in Oklahoma City. The winner of that match plays the winner of Duncan and Bishop Kelley. The other semifinal matchups are Bishop McGuinness vs. Skiatook and Coweta against Catoosa. This is an eight-team single elimination tournament. The seven seniors will be guests during the Sportsguys Tuesday morning and 10th year head coach Ty Ware will be a guest Wednesday morning. The show airs between 7:37 and 9 a.m. on Talkradio 1270 and kscbnews.net.
