Watonga and Geary Finish Strong at the West Regional Wrestling Tournament in Kingfisher

The Watonga/Geary Wrestling team made the short drive to Kingfisher this past weekend for the Class 3A West Regional Wrestling Tournament.

After it was all said and done, they came away with a 5th place finish overall and in doing so will send five wrestlers to State in Oklahoma City on Friday-Saturday, February 23-24.

One of those five wrestlers is Watonga’s own, junior Jayden Flynn, who placed 2nd at the 195-pound division. Flynn will be the first wrestler to represent Watonga at the State Tournament in five years since Jesse Richardson made the tournament in 2013.

Lady Eagles Season Comes to an Early End

The Watonga Lady Eagles Basketball Team endured arguably their most difficult season in over a decade as Watonga finished the 2017-2018 regular season with a 6-17 record overall. But, the beauty of the postseason is everyone is 0-0 as the post season begins. And all it takes is one win to guarantee yet another appearance in the Regional Tournament for the Lady Eagles.

The only thing standing between a shot at a fifth straight District Title against #19 Hobart on Saturday night for the Lady Eagles was the Crescent Lady Tigers. Watonga and Crescent are familiar foes as the Lady Eagles and Lady Tigers had already faced each other twice this season. Watonga lost to Crescent on Fri. Jan. 5, 2018, 44-29, in the Consolation Semifinals of the 2018 Three Rivers Tournament.

Lady Eagles Fall to Second Ranked Lady Wildcats

by Chad Waters 

Watonga fell to #2 ranked Cashion last Friday night in Cashion, 68-34, even with LuLu McKinsey scoring 11 points. The Lady Wildcats came into last Friday night’s game with a 17-2 record and their only losses were to #1 Harrah in Class 4A and #1 Seiling in Class A.

Early on, Watonga’s offense struggled to get anything in the paint as the Lady Wildcats used their length and a zone to keep Watonga on the perimeter and force contested shots. When coupled with the turnovers the deficit quickly grew for the Lady Eagles.

In the first quarter, the Lady Eagles had a jumper from McKinsey and a pair of free throws from Emma Hussey to show for, and that was it, as they trailed 14-4 at the end of one.

Wildcats Take Advantage of 24 Watonga Turnovers

by Chad Waters 

For the first time in over a week, the Eagles returned to full-strength as senior guard Jay Gasper returned from an injury.

Gasper did not start on Friday night as he came off the bench mid-way through the second quarter. Despite that, and in spite of another solid performance from Jon Geels with 16 points, Watonga fell to Cashion 65- 52. Cashion secured their lead in the third quarter on a two-pointer from TJ Roberts and held on for the win, dropping Watonga to 9-9 on the season with five games remaining on the regular season schedule.

After a slow start to the game offensively, the Eagles trailed Cashion 12-8 at the end of the first quarter. However, the Eagles had a strong end to the first half, scoring a game-high 18 points during the second quarter on the strength of a 10-4 run. But, Cashion scored 17 points to stay close by as the teams went to their respective locker rooms at the half with the score Cashion 29 – Watonga 26.
