Dewey also got strong performances form Hunter Perrier, who fills several valuable roles according to head coach Lance Knight.

Oklahoma Union put together an impressive run in the Pawhuska tournament as it knocked out 2A No. 3 Morrison and 3A No. 2 Alva to hoist its first trophy since winning the state title last year. The senior class for OKU lost its first ever conference game when Nowata topped them by 25 points on January 14. Lee Ott says strong defense in the key to the team’s success.
