From MPS director of athletics Chad Davis:
Good afternoon! I hope that everyone had a great Easter weekend with family and friends. This week, as my 10 year old daughter would say, is "CRA-CRA", and is jammed packed with athletic events. Great thing for our kids, coaches, and Wardog fans! I hope you can make it out to see our kids compete this week!
COVID19 Event Update
Our county remained in Orange Level 1 for this week. A mask or face covering is encouraged for everyone in attendance at any Miami Athletics event upon entry and in the concession areas, but is not mandatory. We also encourage everyone to practice safe social distancing while in attendance at any Miami Athletics event.
Wardog Baseball will play at home today vs. Vinita at 5:00pm. There will only be one game played today (no JV game). Vinita does not have enough players for a second game. On Tuesday (4/6/21) the Dogs will travel to Vinita for another 5:00pm game (second game will be confirmed sometime tomorrow). Then on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday they will compete in the annual Mickey Mantle Classic hosted by Commerce. This year we will host games at Joe Pollock Field all three days. The first game for the Dogs will be on Thursday (4/8/21) vs. Wichita at Noon at Joe Pollock Field. Games on Friday and Saturday will depend on bracket play.
The JH Baseball team will see action today and tomorrow. They will travel to Vinita today for games starting at 5:00pm, and will turn around on Tuesday (4/6/21) and host Vinita at 5:00pm for two more games. They were scheduled to play again this Thursday vs. Tahlequah but that game has been canceled (potential make up date is TBD).
Lady Wardog and Wardog Soccer will be back at home tomorrow (4/6/21) as they host Cascia Hall for district games. The girls game will start at 5:00pm, and the boys game will follow at approximately 7:00pm. Both teams will play again this Friday (4/9/21) but will play two different teams. The girls will play at Wright Christian at 5:00pm. The boys will play at Tulsa McLain starting at 6:30pm. The reason for the separate games is because Tulsa McLain's girls soccer team did not have enough to complete a team for the season.
We will host the Miami Invitational Large School Track meet (class 3A and up) this Tuesday (4/6/21) at Craig Field starting at 10:00am.

Some high school track athletes will help run the meet on Thursday. They will finish their week at the Vinita Invitational on Saturday starting at 10:00am.

WARDOG CLUB information
The Wardog Club was formed to help offset the expenses for our athletes who compete and win championships for the Miami Wardogs. Its members are friends, alumni, and advocates of Miami Public Schools who recognize the value of athletics and how they impact all members of the Wardog community. Wardog Club donations help with championship rings, banners, and apparel. These donations will also positively affect facility upgrades, academic resources, and future scholarship opportunities for our senior student-athletes. Each member of the Wardog Club is impactful to all of our student-athletes in all sports, and their contribution has a direct impact on the lives of our student-athletes. For more information on how to join, contact director of athletics Chad Davis at 918-542-8455 or via email at email@example.com. Thank you for your support of our Wardog Champions!
