The Hooker Bulldogs are one game away from a berth in the Class 2A state tournament. The Dogs dominated the Pawnee Black Bears 90-48 on Monday to capture the Area 1 Region 1 championship and advance to the Area championship, Friday night at the Central National Bank Center in downtown Enid.

The 10th-ranked Lady Bulldogs led by seven points in the opening minutes of the fourth quarter, but then things got cold for Hooker and hot for the Lady Yellowjackets. A 10-0 Fairview run sealed Hooker’s doom as Fairview captured the Area 1 Region 1 championship on Monday night and will play for the Area championship with a trip to the state tournament on the line, Friday night in Enid.
