  • Sophomore Kevin Schilling led all scorers by notching a career-high 32 points, and Meeker’s Bulldogs dropped Lincoln County rival Prague by a 60-53 count Tuesday to end the regular season.
     
    The Bulldogs’ win, which puts them at 6-15 on the year, completed the Highway 62 sweep as Class 3A’s No. 14 Lady Bulldogs opened the night with a 51-45 win over the 12th-ranked Lady Red Devils.
     
    Prague defeated the Meeker girls twice before during the season.
     
    In the boys’ game, Schilling connected on five 3-point field goals, and he was a solid 8-for-10 from the free throw line. Teammate Levi Keel supplied nine points, and Seth Jones, Timmy Whitfield and David Kauley each garnered five for the Bulldogs.
     
    Grayson Hamm fueled Prague’s efforts with 25 points. Josiah Snyder pitched in a baker’s dozen.
     
    Meeker led 12-7 after one quarter, and 26-13 at the break. Despite outscoring the hosts 40-34 down the stretch, the Red Devils could not shake the early deficit.
     
    In the girls’ game, Meeker’s Cortney Edmonds led all scorers with 22 points. She was 6-for8 from the field, including one 3-point connection, and she was 9-for-11 on foul shots.
     
    Summer Powell added 14 for the Lady Bulldogs (17-5).
     
    Meeker led 16-8 to start the second quarter, but Prague had the advantage cut to 28-23 by halftime. The Lady Devils trailed 43-31 after three quarters, and a fourth-quarter rally came up short at 14-8.
     
    “It was a good game for us going into playoffs,” said Meeker coach Lisa Pettitt. “Prague is a great team, and this is a good win for us.”
     
    Corbin Coker led Prague with 13 points, and Whitney Stotler added 10. Landrea Hixson scored nine.
     
    Meeker will host Kingfisher Friday for a Class 3A district tournament, and Prague will host Harding Fine Arts. The girls’ games will tip off at 6:30 p.m., and the boys will play at 8 p.m.
