Shunned for another year by the famed Geary Invitational, El Reno High School’s wrestling team joined a list of teams to head south over the weekend for the 2020 Pauls Valley Invitational.

Body

El Reno High School’s girls basketball team got a dose of its own medicine last week and spent the better part of four periods enthralled in a top 20 chess match of full-court pressure defenses with Guthrie.

Despite shooting 60 percent from the floor in the fourth period, El Reno High School’s boys basketball team, ranked 11th in Class 5A, could not climb all the way back from a series of first-half miscues.

Yet the Indians came close.

Guthrie made 7-of-8 free-throw attempts in the final two minutes as the 19th-ranked (5A) Bluejays held off a feverish rally by El Reno for a 61-60 victory inside Jenks Simmons Field House.
