Lady Ridgerunners knock out Lady Buffs

Knowing it could be her last game in a McAlester uniform, senior Kaleisha Johnson made sure she left every ounce of herself on the court.

Had the Lady Buffaloes one more scorer to back up Johnson, their postseason might not have ended after just one game.

Johnson scored 26 points, but the Lady Buffs came up one basket short of a comeback, falling to the Grove Lady Ridgerunners in Thursday’s 5A regional semifinal at East Central High School in Tulsa, 44-42.


With the win, Grove improved to 17-7. McAlester finished its season 10-12.
