High school notebook: Westmoore pulls away from Norman
Westmoore third baseman Dayton Wolfe has been in big moments in just two years.
He played as a freshman for the Jaguars. In the fall, he was the starting quarterback. So, he’s picked up a few things along the way.
That’s why it was no surprise Tuesday night he picked up a pattern from Norman ace Cade Horton in each at-bat.
Wolfe saw first-pitch slider in two straight trips. He jumped on the third.
Wolfe’s two-run single with one out in the fifth inning ended Horton’s night and broke up a pitcher’s duel in Westmoore’s 11-1 win that officially sealed the District 6A-2 title.
“I thought he was going to do it again,” Wolfe said. “I was ready for it.”
Wolfe drove in three runs, including an infield single that scored Jace Bohrofen in a two-run first. But after his two-run hit, Westmoore led 5-1. It went on to complete the run-rule against two more Norman pitchers.
Horton, an Oklahoma commit for baseball and football, allowed seven runs in 4 1/3 innings. He hit three batters and walked four.
Westmoore ace Kale Davis, an Oklahoma State signee, threw the complete game, allowing just the one run on a wild pitch in the fourth. He struck out six.
“Those are probably two of the better arms in the state,” Westmoore coach Joe Patterson said. “I thought Kale did well. He grinded through it. He’s pretty good, though."
Yukon’s Heimbach nearing 100 career goals
Myka Heimbach continues to find new ways to score.
Yukon’s star senior soccer player has led the Millers in scoring her first three seasons, and nothing has changed. After a four-goal outing in a 6-0 victory against U.S. Grant on Monday, Heimbach has netted 31 goals this season and 85 in her career.
She scored nine times her freshman season and added to that with 19 as a sophomore. The Northeastern State signee nearly doubled her career total with 26 her junior season. And as a senior, she is continuing to raise the bar.
After defeating U.S. Grant, the Millers extended their winning streak to 11 games. They travel to Westmoore (11-1 overall, 5-0 District 6A-1) on Friday with the winner capturing the district title.
McLoud’s Cardin has big week
One week into the lineup change, McLoud slowpitch softball star Callie Cardin likes batting atop the order.
Cardin went 17 for 23 atop McLoud’s lineup last week, hitting three home runs, two doubles and two triples while driving in 16 runs.
“She really took on the role of leading us with power,” McLoud coach Chance Griffin said. “When the bottom of the order got on she did her job to make sure and manufacture runs. She’s a hard-nosed kid that makes us go.”
McLoud, ranked No. 3 in Class 5A, went 7-1 last week, losing only to Class 6A power Southmoore. McLoud opened this week with a 22-6 rout of Newcastle.
