SWOSU Hosting High School Basketball Festival


Southwestern Oklahoma State University is hosting a basketball festival December 14-15 involving high school teams from Anadarko, Clinton, Casady and Weatherford.

The festival will be held at Rankin Williams Fieldhouse on the SWOSU campus.            

Games on Friday will be held at 4, 5:30, 7 and 8:30 p.m. Games on Saturday are scheduled for the same times and will follow the 2 p.m. SWOSU women’s basketball contest vs. Kansas Newman.

Todd Boyd, director of the SWOSU Admissions and Recruitment Office, will have an area available for visits with parents and students about SWOSU, which has campus locations in Weatherford and Sayre.            

Boyd said adults and students 9th grade and above will be able to register for four $250 scholarships—one per school—which will be given away during Saturday’s games. Winners of the scholarship drawing will be able to choose the scholarship recipient, a senior who is planning to attend SWOSU during the 2008 fall semester. The scholarships can be used at the Weatherford or Sayre campuses.             

Also, there will be door prizes given away at the games.
