Sports THE JOURNAL, Thursday, June 10, 2010- B3 I_,egion faces busy sc:laedule OGiBuCArmPage the East a 5-4 lead. The ilii  ,i !iiiii,i finished as the Majors State Tournament runner- up a year ago. A three-way is scheduled at Couch Park diamond Sat- urday with the Legionnaires playing Lawton's Colonels at 2 p.m., followed by Lawton taking on Three Rivers at 4 p.m and Still- water playing Three Rivers at 6 p.m. Stillwater's schedule intensifies next week with the Legionnaires scheduled to play six games, starting with a doubleheader at Mid- west City on Tuesday, July 15. Stillwater will play the defending state champion Outlaws of Midwest City in the first game and will play the OC Sandlot team in the second game of the three-way scheduled at Rose State Junior College's diamond. XXX Stillwater's Pioneers, coached by Stillwater High head coach Tony Holt and assistants Casey McCullough and Chance Jeffery, took first place in the annual Trent Vorndran Memorial Tournament in While trying to put together some team chem- istry with several newcom- ers on the team, Stillwater's American Legion Majors baseballers have gotten off to a 3-4 start entering this week. The Legionnaires were rained out of Monday's scheduled game with the Stillwater Pioneers, a game that will be rescheduled if at all possible. Weather permitting, Stillwater was sched- uled to play three of the next five games at home, starting with Wednesday night's home game with the Okmulgee County Twins. The Legionnaires travel to Ada to meet the powerful Braves in a doubleheader, starting at 5:30 p.m. Ada E00emon basketball camp nears and team play and individual contests held.

The Perkins-Tryon Demons boys' bas- ketball camp will be held June 28-July 2 from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. each day. The camp is for boys who will enter the third through ninth grades next school year. Each camper will receive a camp T-shirt and basketball. Camp fee is $65 and regis- tration is due by Thursday, June 10. Basketball fundamentals will be taught STUFF B1 it would all but cause the conference to fold much like the former Southwest Conference did years ago when Texas, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, and Baylor joined the former Big 8 Conference to form the Big 12. As you remem- ber, Arkansas had already become part of the South- eastern Conference. The Pac-lO isn't the only major conference looking to expand as the Big 10 is wooing Nebraska and Missouri to join its allegiance. Given that scenario, that would leave Iowa State, Baylor, Kansas, and Kansas State left to keep the conference afloat or move on to other leagues. Those schools have their strengths as well and could bolster any conference. Once these mega-con- ferences start strength- ening, they will all but swallow up the smaller and mid-sized confer- ence sprinkled around the country. That wouldkeep these schools from taking advantage of major TV time unless they agree to schedule someone from these super-conferences. To some, the only good thing quite possibly would be the nice payout they would receive. But there will be the instances when the upsets occur, Just ask the University of Michi- gan a couple of seasons ago. Of course nothing is going to happen overnight because there's a lot for each school to look at. And you can bet some guidance from key alumni might also play into the equation as well. Continued from Page consist of USC, UCLA, California, Oregon, Oregon State, Washington, and Washington State. As complicated as this seems, it simply comes down to one issue - money. If this becomes fruition, the new conference would have the teeth to negoti- ate a new television deal that would provide much higher payouts the schools are receiving now. That, in turn, would give the s-hool the financial means to improve facilities both athletically and academi- cally with hopes to lure the nation's top student/ hthletes. Also don't forget e national exposure the schools would be gaining too. There are definite pros .and cons to this issue. By pulling these teams out, Have a sports item? E-mail: sports @ thejournalok.com Perry this past weekend. The Pioneers out- manned Pioneer and Pauls Valley enroute to a finals showdown with Guthrie. Stillwater edged Guthrie, 2-1, to win the tourney crown. The tournament is named in memory of former Perry High standout catcher Trent Vorndran, who also played AA American Legion base- ball in Stillwater. Vorndran died in an automobile accident in August, 1993. He was attending Northwestern State University in Alva at the time. Winning the tourney was important for coach Holt since Vorndran was a cher- ished friend of his nephew Brad Holt, the former Pio- neer and Legionnaire who died in an automobile acci- dent July 4, 1991. The duo had spent time together the night of Holt's accident. "I know what this tourna- ment means to Trent's mom (Cathie Benes), his family, the Perry team and the people of Perry. It means a lot to me for our team to win this tournament," coach Holt said. It was also important to coach Jeffery, who lived in Perry when he was younger. Vorndran helped coach Jeffery's 10-and-under little league team at the time. SUMLIN From Page B1 secondS remaining enabled the Class B team to gain the exciting win. Sumlin finished the game leading the Class B group with 18 points. West would hold a 13-10 advantage when the quar- ter ended. In the second period, Willson deflected a West shot near the midway point. The East would surge in the quarter to take a 25-20 half- time lead. Willson was in the second group when she entered in the third quarter. And during her three-min- utes of playing time, she strongly contributed to the East's dominance. Willson recorded two defensive rebounds in addition to two steals. Offensively, she drilled a three-point shot from the top of the key with 23 seconds left that give the East a 34-25 lead, which held up until the end of the quarter. She would add two more defensive rebounds and two steals in the fourth quarter. After her second steal, Will- son spotted up and drilled a three-point bucket with 45 seconds remaining to finish with eight points. She would also commit three personal fouls in the game. Willson, who has signed to play basketball at Seward County Community Col- lege in Liberal, Kan., was the second leading scorer for the Small East with 8 points.
