Swish And Success
Last week, the Nowata Invitational Tournament was held in the new gymnasium. The tournament teams included Nowata, Bluejacket, Sumitt Christian, Chelsea, Sperry, Owasso Jv, Mannford, and Oklahoma Union. In the final games, the Mannford girls defeated Chelsea and the boys defeated Sperry, which made Mannford the winning school of the tournament. The attendance was very good and there were many positive things said about the gym as well as the school. Principal Bron Williams reported the tournament generated over $7,000 for our schools athletic department and clubs. Athletic director, Ty Hewitt says, “I feel the tournament was a success and would like to thank everyone that helped make it a success. I would also like to thank our sponsors for all of their support.”
