    Shawnee’s girls, the defending state champions, are coming off a 51-18 shellacking of 6A’s No. 19 Stillwater in Saturday’s championship game of the Arvest Bank/Sehorn Yamaha Shawnee Invitational. It was the second tourney title of the year for the Lady Wolves following their 45-36 win over 6A’s then No. 6 Norman North in the Jan. 12 championship of the Ada Tournament.
     
    The Lady Wolves, since a Dec. 8 setback to Bixby in the championship game of the Bixby Tournament, are on a 12-game win streak.
     
    Shawnee’s boys went 1-2 in the Shawnee Invitational, dropping a 48-46 decision against El Reno in Saturday’s consolation championship. The Wolves opened with a first-round loss to Southeast before bouncing back and taking a 73-67 come-from-behind win against Sapulpa in round two.
