The tournament field is headlined by the three big schools in Broken Arrow, Jenks and Owasso. However, The Comet Clash will also feature three-time defending 6A-D2 champion Bixby, as well as potent passing teams like Coweta, Lincoln Christian and Shawnee.
Pool A will present the most intriguing match-up as Jenks and Owasso will square off. One of the big storylines going into the 2017 season is the return of Bill Blankenship as Owasso’s head coach. We’ll also see the return of the Blankenship-Trimble rivalry after over a decade. Jenks and Owasso will square off during the regular season on August 25th.
