Guthrie hoops starts season off with tournament win

The Guthrie Bluejays captured the 3rd Annual Compass Athletics Winter Classic championship with three wins last week in Woodward. The Lady Jays just fell short in the championship game.

The Bluejays held off the hometown Boomers, 62-57, to finish the tournament unbeaten.

After trailing, 12-11, after period one, Guthrie outscored Woodward 19-11 in the second quarter.

Woodward made a strong run in the fourth quarter by holding Guthrie to just 11 points in the quarter, but that was not enough to overcome.

The Jays won their first round matchup with Guymon (1-5) 77-49 and in the semifinal upset Class 5A’s 20th ranked Glenpool Warriors (2-3), 47-36.

Guthrie’s Alex Clark, a sophomore, was named the Tournament’s Most Valuable Player. Junior Jaylen Chelf was named to the All-Tournament team.

The Jays are now 3-1 overall after dropping their first game of the season to Class 3A’s top-ranked team in Millwood, 60-47.

Lady Jays fall in title game

Blanchard, ranked 10th in Class 4A, open their halftime lead, 26-21, in the third quarter by outscoring Guthrie by 15 points en route to a 53-29 win.

The Lady Jays picked up a 49-32 win over Perryton (TX) in the first round and a 50-47 win over Guymon in the semifinal.

Guthrie’s Anjewl Murillo was named to the All-Tournament Team.

The Lady Jays (2-2) will host Daniel Webster on Friday for their first home game of the season. Tip time is set for 6 p.m.
