MEEKER — The Okemah and Meeker varsity basketball squads (girls and boys) were getting ready for their Tuesday night doubleheader when school officials decided to postpone activities.

A spokesman said several wrecks on I-40 east of Shawnee were pivotal in the postponement decision.

The games are expected to be made up Thursday.

Meeker’s squads will travel to Luther Friday, then entertain Seminole Monday to conclude the regular season.

Meeker will play host to Henryetta either Feb. 16 or Feb. 17 in Class 3A district contests. Both the district winners and losers will advance.

Meeker’s girls are 10-10. Meeker’s boys are 11-8.
