Owens looks forward to becoming a Hartford Hawk
11/17/20 -

From the time Ada senior Landyn Owens woke up Friday morning, she had butterflies in her stomach. And Friday the 13th had nothing to do with it.

It was signing day for Owens, who will be headed to the University of Hartford in West Hartford Connecticut. It’s the home of the Harford Hawks. It’s easy to see why — and perfectly natural — Owens was a little anxious to sign a letter to attend a Division I college some 1,600 miles away.

“The whole day I was nervous but I’m excited to be able to go,” Owens told The Ada News during the signing ceremony that was attended by 30 or so of her family, friends and classmates. “I was nervous before I signed those papers, but now the pressure is off and it’s all good.”

Owens has already met her roommate Leah Butterbaugh of Waynesville, Ohio, and is looking forward to meeting everyone associated with the Hawks’ women’s basketball program.

“It’s really a great opportunity. I’m really excited. I’ve already met my roommate Leah. I’m so excited to meet all of them,” she said.

Second-year Hartford head coach Morgan Valley is anxious to get Owens on campus.

“Landyn is a crafty, smart, player. She can handle the ball and stretch the floor with her ability to shoot from deep. I am so excited to add Landyn and her family to our Hawk family,” Valley said. “We are beyond excited to add a player of her caliber to our program. I believe that the best is yet to come (for Owens).”

Ada Cougars Win Opening Round Playoff Game
11/17/20 -

Friday the 13th got scary in a hurry for Elk City.

The Ada High football team shifted into high gear for the playoffs and sped past the Elks 47-7 in a Class 4A play-in game Friday at Norris Field.

The Cougars scored on five of six first-half possessions, piled up 442 yards of total offense and limited the Elks to just 115 total yards in the runaway victory.

“We played well. Took advantage of our created opportunities,” said Ada head coach Chris Berus.

Ada improved to 5-4 on the year and travels to No. 10 Clinton for a second-round playoff clash with the historic rivals. Clinton defeated Harrah 38-13 last week.

Cougars hunt well in Friday the 13th playoff victo

Friday the 13th got scary in a hurry for Elk City.

The Ada High football team shifted into high gear for the playoffs and sped past the Elks 47-7 in a Class 4A play-in game Friday at Norris Field.

The Cougars scored on five of six first-half possessions, piled up 442 yards of total offense and limited the Elks to just 115 total yards in the runaway victory.

“We played well. Took advantage of our created opportunities,” said Ada head coach Chris Berus.

Ada improved to 5-4 on the year and travels to No. 10 Clinton for a second-round playoff clash with the historic rivals. Clinton defeated Harrah 38-13 last week.

The Cougars set the tone early against Elk City, opening the game with a meticulous 13-play, 80-yard drive. Running back Earltuan Battles capped that march with a 2-yard touchdown run and a Philip Jones PAT kick gave Ada a 7-0 lead at the 6:01 mark of the first period.

Ada defenders Nate Richardson and Jarron Christian stopped back-to-back Elk City drives with fumble recoveries. Christian’s big play was accompanied by a facemask penalty, setting up Ada at the Elk City 3. Quarterback Zac Carroll scored from there and another Jones kick put Ada ahead 14-0 at the 2:18 mark of the opening frame.

Owens looks forward to becoming a Harford Hawk
11/17/20 -

From the time Ada senior Landyn Owens woke up Friday morning, she had butterflies in her stomach. And Friday the 13th had nothing to do with it.

It was signing day for Owens, who will be headed to the University of Hartford in West Hartford Connecticut. It’s the home of the Harford Hawks. It’s easy to see why — and perfectly natural — Owens was a little anxious to sign a letter to attend a Division I college some 1,600 miles away.

“The whole day I was nervous but I’m excited to be able to go,” Owens told The Ada News during the signing ceremony that was attended by 30 or so of her family, friends and classmates. “I was nervous before I signed those papers, but now the pressure is off and it’s all good.”

Owens has already met her roommate Leah Butterbaugh of Waynesville, Ohio, and is looking forward to meeting everyone associated with the Hawks’ women’s basketball program.

“It’s really a great opportunity. I’m really excited. I’ve already met my roommate Leah. I’m so excited to meet all of them,” she said.

Second-year Hartford head coach Morgan Valley is anxious to get Owens on campus.

“Landyn is a crafty, smart, player. She can handle the ball and stretch the floor with her ability to shoot from deep. I am so excited to add Landyn and her family to our Hawk family,” Valley said. “We are beyond excited to add a player of her caliber to our program. I believe that the best is yet to come (for Owens).”

Owens said Valley was a big reason she’s heading to Connecticut. She said there were a lot of similarities between Valley and Ada head coach Christie Jennings.

“Coach Valley is a lot like coach Jennings. They have the same coaching methods. I’m really excited to be in her program,” Owens said.

Jennings is excited to see what the future holds for her prize senior.

“We are so proud of her. It has been a pleasure to watch her grow as a player and person,” she said. “The University of Hartford is getting a great player and even better person.”

It may be hard for some fans to believe, but — according to Jennings — Owens wasn’t always the basketball stud she is today.

“Landyn has always been a great athlete, but in the eighth grade she was just an average basketball player,” she said. “Our high school coaching staff started challenging her after that eighth grade season. We saw her start to become something special. She has worked her butt off over the last four years to become one of the best players in our state.”

Jennings said there was a time another coach had Owen’s convinced she was a Division I caliber of player. Jennings refused to hear that kind of talk.

“I remember when she was young she told me that a summer coach told her she wasn’t D1 material. She was crying and hurt,” she recalled. “I told her to quit crying, suck it up and go prove them wrong. I hope she never loses that fight and keeps proving people wrong.”

Hawks up!

Cushing Defeats Cougars In District Battle
11/02/20 -

The 13th-ranked Ada Cougars scored a late touchdown and got the ball back in the final seconds but couldn\'t complete the comeback and dropped a tight 23-21 decision to No. 14 Cushing Friday night at Norris Field.

The Tigers will now finish third in District 4A-2, while Ada will stand in fourth place.

Ada was originally scheduled to hit the road next Thursday for a matchup with Classen SAS, but that game has been canceled. The Cougars are expected to host a playoff game in two weeks.

Trailing 23-14, quarterback Zac Carroll — making his second straight start — tossed a 3-yard TD pass to Andrew Hughes and Philip Jones kicked the PAT to get the Cougars within 23-21 with 3:23 to play.

Ada got the ball back and got one first down on a 13-yard reception by David Johnson but the comeback stopped there.
