|Cougars Work Under The Lights|
|08/20/19 - |
A good group of Ada High School fans gathered at Norris Field Saturday night to watch an intense 90-minute practice by the Cougar football team.
That Saturday night slot is usually reserved for the Cougar Preview, the annual Maroon-White scrimmage. However, this year the coaching staff felt like the team could benefit more with an extra practice session instead of bringing game officials in for a scrimmage.
There were plenty of bright spots from Saturday night’s session, but Ada head coach Chris Berus said he’d know more after he and his staff went over film of the workout. It was just Ada’s second practice with pads this fall.
“Tonight was a little bit sharper than yesterday,” Berus said. “The kids are understanding where to be and how to be and why to be and what to do when they get there. I’m loving the effort we’re playing with early on.”

After the completion of last season, her first as the new head coach of Ada High softball, Taylor Henry proclaimed a “New Tide” was coming to the program.
Henry and her Lady Cougars hope to continue that thought process when the 2019 fast-pitch season gets started, when Ada hosts Tulsa’s Will Rogers at 5 p.m. Aug. 13 in a District 5A-4 doubleheader.
“Last year our big theme was New Tide. This year, we want to keep that same momentum,” Henry said at the team’s annual Media Day earlier this week at the Ada High Softball Complex.

|Cougars Win Fourth Straight State Tennis Title|
|05/14/19 - |
Even though the Ada High boys tennis team had clinched the 2019 Class 4A State championship hours earlier with semifinal victories for all four entrants, there were no signs of many celebrations until the final Cougar match was over.
Then, moments after the Ada No. 1 Doubles team of Reese Siegle-Landon Swopes won the last tie-breaker point to edge the previously unbeaten team of Mason Allen and Braden Wadley of Grove in a tense championship match, AHS head coach Skip Griese could finally let his bottled-up emotions out.
“23... 23... 23,” he kept repeating to the large group of Ada tennis fans who remained inside the Oklahoma City Tennis Center Saturday night. The tournament was delayed four hours by rain, but the Pontotoc County proud didn’t seem to be bothered by the extended stay.
The Cougars had secured the Ada tennis program’s 23rd overall state championship. It was also a four-peat for the Ada boys and the eighth consecutive season that Ada has won a team title (boys or girls). Let that sink in. Ada has brought home a first-place trophy every year since 2012.
|Cougar Golf Headed To State|

SHAWNEE — The Ada High boys golf team qualified for the state tournament after a runner-up finish at the Class 4A Regional Tournament, held Monday at Firelake Golf Course in Shawnee.
The Ada boys shot a two-round score of 323-313—636 and finished 15 shots ahead of third-place Hilldale, which finished at 334-317—651.
Cascia Hall won the regional championship after firing off an impressive score of 307-287—594.
“I felt like we performed pretty well today overall. I was a little disappointed in our first round but felt like we rebounded well in the afternoon,” said Ada head coach Robbie Powell. “We did throw away several strokes at the end of both rounds, but it is not like we would have been able to beat Cascia Hall the way they played.”
