Tourney time

Wayne teams are at Central High this week for the Stephens County tourney


The Wayne Bulldogs got another win over Stratford last week, 50-42, behind Ethan Mullins’ 24 points.

“Ethan had a big night. He was 6-6 at the three-point line,” head coach Jackson Embry said.

Jaxon Dill joined Mullins in double figures with 10 and Kaleb Madden added nine.

“Kaleb is a basketball player; he finds ways to contribute,” coach Jackson Embry said.

“His defense was tough against Stratford. Looking back at film, whoever he was guarding on defense was never allowed to score.”

Despite starting slow, Wayne took advantage of Startford’s man defense to close out the win.

Mullins was a perfect 6-6 at the 3-point line and Dill gave them two clutch threes at the end of the game to extend the lead.

Embry and his Bulldogs are at Central High School for the Stephens County Tournament. They played Empire Tuesday afternoon.

“This is a stacked tournament. If there’s one team we match up with it’s Empire; so it should be a good test for us,’ Embry said.


Wayne had a tough draw in the first round of the Stephens County Tournament losing to 3A #19 Marlow Monday afternoon, 65-27

Senior McKenzie Fisher led the Wayne scorers with 11 points. Sophomore Haylee Durrence and Kaylee Madded each added six.

The Lady Bulldogs ran into a good Stratford team last week.

Seven girls scored for Wayne in the 55-31 loss, including seven points from Durrence.

The Lady Bulldogs will back on the court Friday at 4 p.m.
