Wright City wins appeal
Wright City won its appeal and is back in the Class A state baseball tournament after a board hearing with the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association on Tuesday
The board of directors voted 7-6 to issue a warning to the school and recommend a lengthy suspension for coach Kyle Butler, who will miss the remainder of this season and first semester next year, which includes the fall season.
Wright City was forced to forfeit its state tournament quarterfinal on April 30 after it was determined it had exceeded the 22-game limit by two, but the school received an injunction in McCurtain County on May 1.
The first day of the tournament was postponed due to rain, and the first three games were played the next day as the McCurtain County court upheld the injunction following a hearing, postponing the tournament and forcing the OSSAA to appeal to the Oklahoma Supreme Court.
Wright City and Sterling will play their quarterfinal game at 6 p.m. Thursday in Byng. The semifinals and championship will be played Saturday at a site to be determined today.
