Juanita Quesenbury Quinn, 89, longtime Guymon resident passed away Friday morning, Sept. 9, 2011 at the Baptist St. Anthony Hospital in Amarillo, Texas.
The daughter of Hubert R. and Mamie Evaline (Fine) Stanfill, Juanita was born Oct. 6, 1921 in Cardwell, Mo.
Juanita was united in marriage to Sammie Lee Quesenbury on Jan. 3, 1940 in Panhandle, Texas. They were blessed with two sons, Darrell and Dwayne and three daughters: Shirley, Linda and Nancy. Sammie preceded her in death on Feb. 10, 1972.
Jackie Herald Clutter, 61, of Hooker, passed away Sept. 7, 2011 at her home.
Jackie was born May 24, 1950 in Sacramento, Calif. As a toddler she was brought to the Hooker-Tyrone area to live with her grandmother, Ella Booth Miller and her aunts.
She attended school in Tyrone. She spent one year of her high school living with Leo and Sue Steinle who later in her life adopted her. She graduated from Hooker High School with the Class of 1968.
LIBERAL, Kan. â The look on the face of Guymon head coach Bryan Ballard was one of disbelief and disgust as he stood frozen for a long moment, trying to make sense of an 87-yard touchdown run by the Liberal Redskins in the fourth quarter Friday.
It was their eighth trip to the end zone.
Eight turnovers and a plethora of missed tackles by the Tigers led to one of the most lopsided games ever in this rivalry as Liberal topped Guymon, 59-6.
TEXHOMA, Okla. â For two quarters Friday night, the Texhoma Red Devils played toe-to-toe with the Sunray Bobcats.
But in the second half, Sunray got the breaks, and Texhoma got the heartache as the No. 16 team in Texas pulled away for a 41-6 win over the Red Devils at Wheatbowl Stadium.
"We're not 35 points worse than those guys," said Texhoma head coach Aaron Witten. "We hung in there, they got the breaks. They've been doing that week after week. Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good."
The Goodwell/Yarbrough Eagles were in position to bring an end to their 17-game losing streak Saturday night when the demons of their past came back to haunt them.
Penalties and fumbles stalled the Eaglesâ offense and a 6-6 tie at halftime turned into a two-touchdown hole as host Waynoka pulled away to win 26-14.
âWe played really good but we are still making the minor mistakes,â Eagles head coach Jason Pierson said. âWe just put the ball on the ground too many times again.â
The Eagles fumbled the ball away four times including twice in the red zone.
What a difference a week can make.
Just seven days after falling victim to a 40-point rout by Moscow, the Balko/Hardesty Bison were a whole new team Saturday.
Against powerhouse Shattuck, which boasts a record of 77-3 over the past six seasons, the Bison were within a touchdown with just one minute left before Shattuck scored with 53 seconds remaining and held on for a 32-20 win in Balko.
Again the Guymon Lady Tigers and West Texas Comanches needed five sets to find a winner, and again that winner was West Texas.
The Lady Tigers, who fell to West Texas in their first and only home match so far this season, lost on the road to the Comanches, 3-2 (20-25, 25-10, 19-25, 25-18, 15-4) on Tuesday.
Senior outside hitter Charrissa Pierce led the attack at the net for the Lady Tigers (7-5), totaling 10 kills, while senior outside hitter Kate Strickland and sophomore middle hitter Erin Bledsoe each had nine kills.
ByGUYMON â For the Guymon High School Lady Tigers softball team, speed is everything.
As in pitching speed.
The ladies are accustomed to practicing with the pitching machine and coaches throwing over 60 mph. So when they face a slower pitcher, sometimes that can work against the Lady Tigers.
Fortunately on Thursday, it worked out in Guymonâs favor in wins of 6-2 and 5-2 over the Hooker Lady Bulldogs.
The Tyrone Bobcats are gaining confidence with each quarter played in the young 2011 campaign.
But in Thursday nightâs 46-12 win over Boise City in the District C-1 opener for both teams, several gaps in Tyroneâs armor were exposed. Penalties and turnovers quelled several promising Bobcat possessions.
âThose are things you have to clean up,â said Tyrone head coach Josh Bell. âWeâre excited about the win, but thereâs a lot of things we still have to work on.â
Lillie Loraine âLilâ Utley, 85, of Guymon passed away Wednesday morning, Sept. 7, 2011 at the Dunaway Manor in Guymon.
The daughter of Joe Albert and Emily Ann (McBee) Javurek, she was born Aug. 20, 1926 nine miles north of Hooker. Lil was raised in Hooker, attending the Hooker School system.
Lil was a member of the Baptist Church and was a homemaker. She also worked in the restaurant and ice businesses and loved crocheting, going to garage sales and playing cards.
