Judge rules against Douglass’ challenge
BY STAFF REPORTS
OKLAHOMA CITY – Judge Bernard Jones ruled on Dec. 11 to deny Oklahoma City Douglass High School’s request to replay the final minutes of their playoff game against Locust Grove High School.
Douglass filed the challenge in Oklahoma County District Court after the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association voted against its request for a replay earlier this month.
Douglass lost to Locust Grove in a playoff game in November after a referee enforced a penalty incorrectly.
The court filing put a hold on part of the Class 3A playoffs until a decision could be made.
Locust Grove is slated to play Heritage Hall in Sapulpa given there is no stay granted by the state Supreme Court. Douglass was given time to file an appeal.
