OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) —
Maddison Collyer scored 22 points to help Harrah defeat Fort Gibson 54-47 for the Class 4A girls state championship Saturday at State Fair Arena.
Collyer, and Oklahoma Christian signee, made 5 of 9 field goals and 11 of 14 free throws. Erika Ankney added 13 points and eight rebounds for Harrah (28-1), last year’s Class 4A runner-up.
Kabree Egdmon scored 12 points and Ali Christie added 11 for Fort Gibson (29-1), which reached the final for the first time since winning state in 2014. The Lady Tigers were unbeaten last season before losing in the state quarterfinals.
Fort Gibson led 24-21 at halftime, but Harrah opened the second half with a 15-1 run. Fort Gibson cut its deficit to 43-42 in the fourth quarter on a pair of 3-pointers by Christie.
Fort Gibson trailed by three and had the ball in the final minute, but couldn’t score.
