The Central Oklahoma Athletic Conference Softball Tournament title holder has been a vacant post the last three years.
The Millerettes look to change that this week.
Yukon will make a run at the COAC title starting Friday at Wildhorse Park in Mustang.
The tournament has been rained out the last three seasons and since the tournament was begun, only one has gone the distance with a champion crowned. YHS will be looking to change that this weekend and the weather looks to be cooperative this time around.
The Millerettes, seeded No. 5 in the tournament, will play the No. 12 seed, Edmond North in the opening round at 11 a.m. on Friday, The loser of that game will get a bye since Stillwater (who was to have played Santa Fe in the other half of the bracket) dropped out due to Covid-19 reasons.
The winner will face the No. 1 seed Mustang in a 2 p.m. game. The winner of that game will move on to play the winner No. 1 seed Edmond Memorial and No. 9 seed Santa Fe at 10 a.m. Saturday in one semifinal game.
The bottom half of the bracket, which has No. 2 seed Southmoore and No 3 seed Deer Creek, also includes Moore, Norman North, Westmoore and Norman. Moore and NNHS and Westmoore and NHS play in the first round. The semifinal will also be played at 10 a.m.
The championship finals will be played at 2 p.m.
