Caddo hopes to bring home pair of state basketball titles
CADDO, Okla. (KTEN) - The Caddo Bruins have never won a state title in either boys or girls basketball. That could very well change this week with both teams heading to Oklahoma City for the OSSAA Class A state basketball tournament.
The Caddo boys are currently ranked No. 1 in the state for their class and are the only team returning to Jim Norick Arena that played there a year ago.
The Lady Bruins are ranked No. 2 in the state, just behind Seiling, who knocked them out last year.
The experience might have overwhelmed them last year, but this year both teams plan to use it to their advantage.
"It's a lot different for us because we know what to expect," said Caddo boys and girls head coach Kolby Johnson. "We're going to play basketball and we're going to win games."
"I think [experience] will be big," said Caddo junior guard DJ Dill. "It's difficult playing there, it feels like all the pressure is on you."
"Coming in this year, I don't think we're as nervous because we've been there and that's all it takes," said senior guard Emily Robinson.
The Caddo boys will play Drummond at 1:30 p.m., with the ladies playing Oklahoma Bible Academy at 7:30 p.m.
