For sports and photography fans, you might be aware that we are at the tail end of basketball season. Saturday night, the Roff Tigers won their first basketball championship in more than 60 years, in the newly-remodeled Oklahoma State Fairgrounds Arena, also known as The Big House. The Tigers were pitted against perennial class A arch rival, the Red Oak Eagles, from whom Roff took two consecutive baseball titles last fall and last spring. It was an incredibly intense game, and was an absolute pleasure to work under the new, improved lights in The Big House.
A day earlier, Friday, the Konawa Lady Tigers beat Savanna in the area championship game in McAlester, also in a nail-biter. They play in the class 2A state tournament starting tomorrow at The Big House, and I will be there.
Update: The Konawa Lady Tigers lost their bid for the state championship Thursday night, March 11, against Snyder. My basketball season, and theirs, is over.
