he Lady Bisons travelled to Maryland School for the Deaf for our 41 annual
EDSAA track and field tournament this past weekend.  This competition was
the culmination of our entire season and what we have worked towards all
spring.  Our girls were excited to test their skills against the rest of
the ESDAA and see where they fell.  The Lady Bisons performed well in the
hot weather and earned a total of 1 gold medal, 2 silver medals, 2 bronze
medals, and 6 personal records.  The girls finished in 2nd Place amongst
divison 2 schools and 3rd place overall.  We were very proud of our teams
accomplishments and can’t wait to build on our success next year.  Please
wish our girls congrats!!!

OU golf: Sooners’ Rylee Reinertson prepared for regional, but has already
accomplished big

NORMAN — Rylee Reinertson might not be the biggest name among the
golfers in the NCAA’s Norman Regional this week at Jimmie Austin OU Golf
Club.

Reinertson might’ve become a golfer even without his hearing difficulties.
His brothers both played golf at Nebraska, and his father is a high school
golf and basketball coach.

He became one of the all-time scorers in Nebraska history, averaging 25.8
points, 8.1 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 4.8 steals per game as a senior.

But by the time Reinertson reached high school, it was apparent that golf
was his top sport.

Last season, he was a team captain on the Sooners’ national title team and
went 2-1 in the NCAA Championships’ match play.

This season has been a bit rougher for him.

He isn’t expected to be in the lineup for this week’s regional, instead
serving as an alternate for the top-seeded Sooners.

“The only thing I can control is just trying to be prepared the best I
can in case I do get the opportunity,” Reinertson said Sunday after his
practice round.

note:

typical for college seniors – some kind of jinx – they don’t do as well
during their senior seasons as compared to their earlier seasons!
