The Oklahoman's high school athletes of the week for Jan. 4-10
Here are The Oklahoman's Athletes of the Week for Jan. 4-10:
Reid Lovelace, Jr., Crossings Christian: Lovelace was stellar this past week, helping the Knights to a 4-0 record and a win at the Stroud tournament. He scored 20, 11 and 19 points in each game, not playing in the second half of any of them. He was named Most Valuable Player. This season, Lovelace is averaging 19 points per game along with six assists and four steals. He's also shooting 42% from deep.
Landry Allen, So., Tuttle: The 6-foot-3 post was unstoppable in the Weatherford Classic this weekend. She played only one half against John Marshall but tallied 13 points, four rebounds and four blocks. Allen doubled down on her first game with a 17-point, 11-rebound and six-block performance against Clinton before leading Class 4A No. 5 Tuttle past No. 2 Weatherford in the tournament championship with 21 points, nine rebounds and three blocks. She shot 80% from the field throughout the three-day tournament.
Owen Flynn, Jr., Heritage Hall: Flynn won two races at the Casady-McGuinness Invitational on Friday. He completed the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:03.52 and the 200 individual medley in 2:09.38. Flynn won Class 5A state titles in those events last year. He also won the title in the 200 individual medley as a freshman. He’s primed for another stellar season and will try to add more championships before his high school career is over.
Isabel Webb, Sr., Shawnee: She won the 50-yard freestyle during last Tuesday’s meet at Edmond Public Schools. She won the same race at the Casady-McGuinness Invitational on Friday and also placed second in the 100 butterfly at both meets. Her efforts at the Casady-McGuinness Invitational helped Shawnee place first in the 12-team field. Webb was one of the top swimmers in the metro last season. She was a first-team member on The Oklahoman’s All-City squad.
Keegan Luton, Sr., Mustang: The 145-pounder earned a 6-3 victory during Thursday’s dual in Mustang against Broken Arrow’s Blazik Perez, who placed second in the 132-pound division at the Class 6A state tournament last year. On Saturday, Luton helped the Broncos win the Mustang Invitational Dual Tournament. The Broncos beat Tuttle in the championship dual, and Luton notched a 3-1 win against defending Class 4A state champion Bryce Dauphin, a Wyoming signee. Luton is one of several standout wrestlers for Mustang and will continue his career at Oklahoma City University.
