The Gowen Mountain schools are going to regionals.
The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association released the Class 2A district brackets on Wednesday, as games are scheduled for Feb. 15 and 16. One team out of the three has a bye into the Feb. 16 championships, and automatically qualify for regionals, scheduled to begin Feb. 21.
Amongst local teams, Wilburton has a bye into the District 4 championship Feb. 16 on its home floor, and Hartshorne has a bye into the District 5 title game on its home court.
However, the Lady Diggers (12-10) and the Class 2A-No. 3 Lady Miners (19-1) will not square off in regionals. Wilburton is scheduled to travel to Latta, while Hartshorne is scheduled to stay home.
The district champion will play its Feb. 21 game at 6:30 p.m., while the loser of the district championship would play at 1:30 p.m. in the regional consolation bracket. The two teams in the regional championship, plus one team in the consolation bracket, advance to area.
Wilburton will await the winner of the Gans and Savanna game Feb. 15. The Lady Bulldogs (6-12) won, 56-24, at Haileyville on Tuesday.
Hartshorne would take on the winner of the game between Haworth and Rattan.
Over in District 6, one local team is guaranteed to advance. However, another local team is guaranteed not to advance. Quinton is scheduled to face Talihina at Talihina. The winning team between the Lady Savages (4-19) and Lady Golden Tigers (6-12) would take on Silo the following night for the district crown. One of these two teams would advance to Allen for regional play.
Another team which has to earn its way to regionals is Canadian. The Lady Cougars (6-15) must beat Tushka Feb. 15 at Konawa to advance to regionals. A win against Tushka would mean taking on host Konawa for the district championship the following night. The Lady Cougars would then return to Konawa for regionals should they advance.
