Several ros- ters feature Stillwater High graduates. When Oklahoma State's Cowboys open the season Friday, Feb. 15, at the University of Texas-Rio Grande Valley in Edin- burg, Texas, former Pioneer Dylan Gardner will be com- peting for playing time. Gardner, a 5-8 soph- omore infielder, is in a battle for playing time at second base after playing in 25 games for O-State last season as a freshman. The left-handed hitter started six games. His best outing last season was a two-hit effort in a win at Oklahoma. Former Pioneer Abe Spencer, a 5-10 junior pitcher for Oklahoma Chris- tian University, helped the Eagles td an early 3-0 start but his contribution came as a designated hitter. In Oklahoma Chris- tian season-opening 6-5 extra-inning win over Pitts- burg State last weekend, Spencer made the most of his DH opportunities. He walked with the bas- es-loaded to drive in the Eagles' first run. In the bottom of the 11th inning, he was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to send home the winning run. Oklahoma Christian also defeated Missouri Southern and Central Oklahoma in the Edmond First Pitch Classic, hosted by UCO. Also opening the season in impressive fashion was SHS graduate Riley Metzger, a 5-10 sopho- more outfielder for No. 20 Hutchinson (Kansas) Community College. In a season-opening 11-8 win over Coffeyville Commu- nity College, Metzger was 7th boys win league tourney BRISTOW - The sev- enth grade Demons rolled to a Tulsa 7 Conference tournament title last Satur- day in Bristow with a 42-29 win over Cushing in the championship finals.
