    #7 Oklahoma Advances to Finals vs. #1 Air Force
    I don’t have most of the scores for the weekend, but wanted to let you know that the FINAL for the Western Collegiate Championships will be tomorrow at 12:30.

    #7 OKLAHOMA vs. #1 AIR FORCE

    Oklahoma defeated Colorado University 15-10 and also defeated University of Northern Colorado 8-7.

    Air Force defeated Truman State and defeated University of New Mexico.

    I will have more results tomorrow.

    More on Western Collegiates

    The cinderella story is complete, a lot of teams said Oklahoma didn’t deserve to be there, that they were just given a spot because they were hosting the tournament. In the end Oklahoma faced a fit Air Force team that is very disciplined and organized. Oklahoma played hard the whole weekend with only three subs but was able to travel all the way to the Final on sunday.

    Its too hard to write much now…as I am a member of the Oklahoma Roses…and I will just leave it at that. Our public relations guru will be sending out a press release shortly. Good luck to Air Force…represent the West with all you have. We would have loved to have the oppurtunity.

    #7 OU vs. #2 University of Colorado 15-10
    #7 OU vs. #6 University of Northern Colorado 8-7 WIN

    Final vs. Air Force
    #7 OU vs. #1 Air Force 23-3 LOSS

    Air Force places 1st and is the West Champions.
    OU took 2nd place and moves up in the West rankings.

    Texas A&M placed 3rd defeating University of New Mexico 33-0, who placed 4th.

    Will try to post scores for the whole tournament tomorrow.
