With Spring wrapping up, it’s easy to forget about those last few accomplishments at the end of the school year.
They’re often overshadowed by summer excitement and the flurry of vacation prep. However, Deer Creek athletics deserves a little limelight thrown its way for some truly impressive spring sport accomplishments.
Multiple sports teams qualified for the OSSAA State Tournament, and a few made it to the coveted final game. Deer Creek baseball did well during playoffs and fell just short of the State Championship title after losing to Edmond North in the finals, 2-0. Both the boys and girls track teams qualified for the Track State Tournament, with the girls team winning the 6A Regional Championship title preceding the state games. Deer Creek’s lacrosse team ended up placing second in the Heartland Lacrosse Conference after a stunning triple-overtime finish. Following a tough match, Deer Creek tennis partners Parker Brown and Zac Yap, and individual Tanner Brown took fifth place at the State Tennis Tournament.
“Our move into class 6A has been a success due to the hard work of our student-athletes and the leadership of our coaches,” said James Edwards, Director of Athletics for Deer Creek Schools. “We enjoy a lot of parent support, which is a huge plus for our community—the hard work our parents put in volunteering gives them a chance to be a part of our overall athletic program success.”
After such impressive victories, Deer Creek athletes have a well-deserved summer break where they can rest and train for next year’s sports.
