It will be an all Cimarron vs. Meade championship doubleheader today at the Cimarron Bluejay Invitational after each school's respective teams advanced to the title games with semifinal victories on Friday night.

But the way the teams advanced couldn't have been more different.

While the Lady Bluejays rolled past Sublette 77-30, and the Lady Buffaloes raced past Bucklin 50-38, the two boys semis provided the fireworks of the night.

Cimarron's boys had to go into overtime to defeat Sublette 91-84 while Meade squeaked past South Gray's Rebels 60-59.

The girls title game will tipoff at 6:30 p.m. with the boys set to start at 8:30 p.m.

Consolation games will be contested earlier in the day.

On the boys side, in 2 p.m. games, it will be Bucklin vs. Deerfield in the seventh place game and Wichita County taking on Satanta for fifth place. The third place boys game will be played at 5 p.m. In the girls bracket, two 12:30 p.m. games will pit Wichita County against Deerfield for seventh place and South Gray takes on Satanta for fifth place. The third-place game is set for a 3:30 p.m. start.

Girls

The Lady Bluejays marched into the championship game by racing out to a 35-8 first-quarter lead over the Lady Larks.

The score was 53-14 at the half.

Brooke Briggs scored 11 points for Sublette.
