EHS cagers to visit El Reno

Enid News and Eagle

ENID, Okla. —

Presidents Day will be no holiday for the Enid High basketball teams.

The Pacers and Plainsmen, coming off being swept at Lawton Eisenhower (girls 55-50 and boys 58-23) will travel to 5A El Reno for a 6:30 p.m. girls-boys doubleheader.

The games can be heard on KGWA (960 AM).

The No. 7-ranked Pacers (17-4) beat El Reno 50-45 in the season opener Nov. 29 behind 14 points from Abby Lee and 10 points from Grace Enmeier and Haven Bay.

Courtney Chelf, the Pacers leading scorer (17.9 ppg), was held to 9points, one of only two games where she was held under double figures.

Chelf has 18 straight games in double figures.

The Lady Indians, 7-13, are ranked No. 20 in 5A. El Reno broke a four-game losing streak by beating Guthrie 35-34 on Friday.

The Plainsmen (8-13) had their lowest scoring total of the season Saturday against Lawton Eisenhower.

Enid will be trying to avenge a 56-49 loss to the Indians at the Mabee Center on Nov. 29.

Jemarcus Jackson led the Plainsmen attack in that game with 21 points.

El Reno (12-8) is coming off a 43-39 loss at home to Guthrie. It was the Indians’ second-straight loss. El Reno had won four-straight before that, including a 48-46 win over Shawnee in the Shawee Invitational consolation finals.

It’s the season finale for both EHS teams, who will open the 6A playoffs later this week.

The girls will play Mustang at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Tulsa Washington. The boys will play Broken Arrow at 6:30 p.m. Friday at Bartlesville.
