Class B girls basketball: Lomega tops McCurtain in quarterfinals, passes Byng for most state tournament wins

YUKON – Lomega has a storied girls basketball tradition.

The Class B program consistently works its way into the state tournament and has won a record 13 championships.

The top-ranked Raiders continued their winning ways Thursday, defeating McCurtain 62-40 in the state tournament quarterfinals at Yukon High School. Lomega (28-2) earned its 62nd state tournament win, passing Byng for the most all-time.

“We’re really little and that’s about the only girls who are in school, right there on the team,” Lomega coach Kevin Lewallen said. “That’s about all we have to do there – play basketball.”

Freshman Darcy Roberts led Lomega with 17 points. Sydni Walker, also a freshman, had 15.

Piper Reed led No. 8 McCurtain (27-6) with 16 points.

Lomega has won 12 state titles since Omega and Loyal merged in 1968. Omega, which is roughly 18 miles west of Kingfisher, won the 1955 state championship. Loyal is about 12 miles north of Omega. The high school sits between the two towns.
