Stephens County Tournament - Round 1 - Marlow Girls vs Waurika

January 22, 2020

The Marlow Lady Outlaws only have to win one more to clinch a spot in the finals of the 89th annual Stephens County Tournament in Comanche this week, and to do so they’ll face the number-two seed Velma-Alma Lady Comets at 4pm on Thursday.

The number-three seeded Marlow girls handily tamed the number-six seed Waurika Lady Eagles in their first game on Monday, grabbing the lead early and keeping it throughout the game.

Despite aggressive scoring from the field, the final 45-27 score hides a challenge the Lady Outlaws will face the rest of this week: the team was 5-13 on free throws, compared to the Lady Eagles’ 10-13. Marlow’s Madison Fitzhugh shot 3 for 6 from the line and Judeah Valenzuela was 1 for 2. Whitney Wade sank her only attempt.
