Ridgerunners basketball regular season is wrapping up with just a few games remaining on the books.

Both the boys and girls teams are down to their last couple of games before the start of district play later this week.


The Ridgerunners played perhaps one of their best games of the season against Coweta (16-4) on Friday, Feb. 9 despite losing 57-60.

“We played very well against Coweta and our bench was unbelievable,” said coach Zach Trimble, “They kept us in the game when we were in foul trouble.

“Coweta is one of the top teams in 5A and we gave them all they wanted buy just came up a little short.

“I am very proud of my guys, this will prepare us for districts and have us ready to get after it.”

The loss against Coweta brings their season record to 5-14 with one more scheduled regular season game to be held Tuesday, Feb. 13 at Glenpool before moving into districts.

“Getting a win at Glenpool will be big for our confidence and momentum going into districts with Catoosa," Trimble said. "We will start preparing for them some today and watch film later in the week to get ready.”

Districts will be a double elimination series for the Ridgerunners meaning they will have two shots to advance.

Catoosa is currently sitting 16-7 in their season and is coached by John Coons.

The Ridgerunners will be facing a tough battle against Catoosa but a win will put them on the road to area.

Lady Ridgerunners

The Lady Ridgerunners were able to pull out another win at Coweta 58-40 bringing their season record to 16-3 with their only regular season loss being against Tahlequah.

The girl’s will be playing at Glenpool (3-18) prior to the boy’s game this Tuesday, Feb. 13 who they defeated in late January 52-9.

The girls will face Catoosa for the first round of district play who is currently sitting at 11-12 for their season.

While there is never a sure victory in sports the Lady Ridgerunners are heavily favored for round one of district play, barring any unexpected surprises.
