B2 - THE JOURNAL, Thursday, August 4, 2011 Sports EVENTS Continued from Page B1 Hart said the three tournaments are close to home and she scheduled them because of their proximity. However, that doesn't mean the competitioh will be any easier. "I know we'll face some good competition in those tournaments," Hart added; P-T will field a relatively young squad with only two seniors on the roster; Kalyn Littau and McKayla Williams. Both will be counted on to provide leadership for the squad. But those youngsters won't be without any experience. Many saw lots of action during the summer season, which helps Hart determine what holes need to be filled. , Practice began for the Lady Demons on Monday morning. The team was scheduled to work out on the field from 8-11 a.m. before moving to the air-conditioned intermediate school gym for more drills and conditioning. The heat also concerns her for tonight' s scrimmage with the Lady Bears, but with other events taking place in Pawnee, the scrimmage was set for 4 p.m: so the team can get back in time. She plans to take all necessary precautions to insure players for both teams will be safe. For Friday night's varsity-alumni." game, Hart said she has 13 former players con- firmed to play. That number could possibly increase. She said Model T has donated some T-shirts that will be given away. Plus there are other activities planned for the evening.

Journal photo by Kyle Lomenick Tippeconnie signs NJCAA cage letter Emeri Tippeconnie, a 2011 graduate of Perkins-Tryon High School, recently signed a NJCAA National Letter of Intent to play college basketball at Black Hawk East College in Kewanee, Ill. Tippeconnie was recruited for her defensive talents, said head coach David Wallace. "We saw a long athletic basketball player that got out and defended," Wallace said recently. Wallace added he had a chance to see Tippecon- nie play in the Native American Basketball Invitational Tournament in Phoenix, Adz., arlier this summer. Wallace said his Lady Warriors like to press a lot and play man-to-man defense and feels Tippeconnie does both well. He also expects her offensive game to improve as well. Wallace also feels she can make an immediate impact in addition to contributing in the future. Black Hawk East went 21-9 last season and was 22-10 the season before. The school is a Division I junior college and was in the NJCAA national tournament in 2007. "We are known for getting after the ball full court and creating offense with our defense," Wallace said. Guest speaker Ran Baker, far right, a former member of the Oklahoma State University football team, spoke to the group of Perkins Bandits players and coaches following a workout during last week's camp. Baker encouraged to youngsters to work at doing their best regardless of the outcome of a game. The Bandit teams began practicing for the upcoming season this week. Baker lettered as an offensive lineman for the Cowboys during the 1975 and 1976 seasons. He went on to play professional football for the Baltimore Colts and Philadelphia Eagles. His NFL career spanned 11 seasons. Journal photo by Kyle Lomenick School starts soon.
