PURCELL – The Ada Cougars broke a 3-all deadlock with a four-run seventh inning in claiming a 7-3 win over Pauls Valley on Thursday in the Heart of Oklahoma Classic, hosted by Purcell High School.
Later in the day, Washington (No. 12 in Class 3A) limited Ada to just two hits in picking up a 2-1 decision over the Cougars in a winner’s bracket game.

|Ada Golfers Finish Second At Del City|
OKLAHOMA CITY — The Ada High boys golf team fired a 308 and finished in second place Thursday at the Del City Invitational held Thursday at the Trosper Park Golf Course.
Piedmont (No. 12 in Class 5A) won the tournament title with a 299. Holand Hall was third with a 310, while the Sulphur Bulldogs were a stroke back at 311. Kingfisher settled for fifth place with a 314.
“I thought we played really well today,” said Ada head coach Robbie Powell. “It was a little bit cold, but the wind was light and the golf course was in good shape, so there was no reason not to play well today.”
Max Roberts led the Cougar charge with a score of 69, one stroke off the top medalist round. Hunter Oden and Will Craig, both of Piedmont, had identical scores of 68. Garrett Murphy of Putnam City North finished fourth at 74, while Dillon Burns of Kingfisher was fifth at 75.
“Max was outstanding finishing third individually,” Powell said.
Matthew Brown and Ross Keep both shot 78s for the Cougars.
“Ross and Matthew played well too,” Powell said. “We continue to get better.”
Rounding out the Ada scores were Aiden Plumlee with an 83 and Ryan Hagar with an 84.
“We still have to cut down on the mental mistakes that are costing us the five or six shots that we need to save to compete for a title this year,” Powell said. “They continue to work at those things, and I expect the improvement to continue.”
The Cougars — ranked No. 2 in Class 4A behind Heritage Hall — are back in action Monday at the Ardmore Invitational hosted by the Dornick Hills Golf Course. That will be Ada’s last tournament before the Class 4A Regional Tournament scheduled for April 30 at the Jimmie Austin Golf Course in Seminole.
Joining Ada in the Seminole regional include the host Chieftains, Broken Bow, Ft. Gibson, Hilldale, Metro Christian, Muldrow, Sallisaw and Wagoner.

PLAINVIEW – The Ada Cougars outhit Plainview 11-10 but committed three errors and surrendered four unearned runs in dropping a 10-8 decision to the host Indians Monday night.
Plainview tallied three runs in the bottom of the fifth inning which proved to be the difference.
Jerrett Ellis and Jackson McFarlane sparked the Ada offense with three hits each. Ellis went 3-for-5 with two doubles, six runs batted in and one run scored. McFarlane was 3-for-4 with a double, scored three times and drew a walk. Trel Moore also finished 2-for-4 in a losing cause.
Reliever Tovan Thomsen suffered the loss, despite giving up only one earned run off five hits with three walks and seven strikeouts in 4.2 innings of work.
The Cougars’ initial run came in the first as McFarlane scored on an error off a hard ground ball hit by Ellis.
After Plainview tallied three in the bottom half of the first, Ada had its most productive inning in the second. A Jalen Graham leadoff single to center got things rolling. Bo Charboneau then drew a walk and McFarlane singled to center to load up the bases.
One out later, Ellis smacked a three-run double to center. After Moore reached on an error and moved Ellis over to third, Patrick Tims doubled Ellis home for a 5-3 Cougar advantage.
The Indians then pushed four across the plate in the second for a 7-5 Plainview lead.
Ada then pulled within 7-6 in the third when Christian Maloy drew a one-out walk and scored off Ellis’ second double.
The Cougars later tallied two in the fifth for an 8-7 lead with Ellis delivering a run-scoring single to bring home McFarlane, who led off the inning with an infield single. An RBI groundout by Tims later in the inning plated Maloy, who reached base after being hit by a pitch.
Ada meets Pauls Valley at 4 p.m. Thursday at the Heart of Oklahoma Tournament in Purcell. That event, that continues through Saturday, also includes teams from host Purcell, Newcastle, Lexington, Bridge Creek, Washington and Bethel.
