By Ryan Horton

After edging out Bixby for a regional crown, Choctaw High School is headed back to the Oklahoma Secondary Activities Association Class 6A Fast Pitch Softball State Tournament.
CHS opened regional action with a 7-3 win over Putnam City North.
Thursday Choctaw secured their place in the regional final with a 4-3 win over Bixby.
However, the final day of regional action was a challenge as the Lady Yellowjackets had to play the Lady Spartans twice.
Bixby had won their way back to the final, and then won the first game of the day.
After six scoreless innings, Bixby had an explosive final inning to take a 5-0 win.
Bixby’s rally meant a third regional contest between the two would determine the champion.
Choctaw answered the call with a big fifth inning to secure a come-from-behind victory, 5-4.
“I think the way that we did it honestly kind of shows the character and the unity within this team. You know just coming together and fighting until the end even though we got down early and gave up a tough one,” said head coach Lindsey Mudgett. “I mean we played hard we just couldn’t catch breaks. I felt like, honestly, that was kind of the cry of the whole day. All through regionals, we just could not catch hard balls hit right to people, we had a couple of hard deflects off of people that cost us runs.”
Mudgett was proud of her Lady Jackets for fighting until the very end.
“They never gave up and honestly, that’s just playoff ball. It’s about the grit and who wants it more,” said Mudgett.
CHS has three seniors this year, and with their ticket to state punched, every senior group has made state since Mudgett took over the Choctaw program.
“This was a big accomplishment for these three seniors. They were going to be the first class not to attend a fast pitch state tournament since I’ve been here, and it was definitely heavy on their hearts. I know they’ve worn it on their shoulders and it’s something that they wanted to accomplish,” said Mudgett. “Those three seniors leading all the way is a big reason why we are sitting here and going into the last week of the season. I’m very happy that they got what they wanted.”
Mudgett’s dedication to the program remains unwavering.
The Choctaw coach delivered a baby on Monday, was released from the hospital Wednesday and then led her team to victory in the regional tourney the next day.
“I got out of the hospital on Wednesday morning. I’m just very blessed with the ability to do it. Obviously, I wanted to be here for these girls and my family understands that and knows that’s a priority. I’m so fortunate and blessed to have a family that supports me and wants the best for these girls in our program,” said Mudgett.
Choctaw is now set to enter the state tourney, and the team believes the grueling regional has set the tone for how they’ll need to compete.
“I think the game that we just played was good practice that’s what playoffs are all about. That’s what the state tournament is all about. Your back is against the wall and it’s do or die, you know, you lose and you go home. There’s no second chance. I would put us up against anyone just because when the going gets tough our team comes up big. It’s going to be tough, it’s going to be a grind, but it’s one game a day and that’s what makes it great.”
Pitcher Bella Butler was excited to see the team work through the grueling regional, and expects to see the offense work more efficiently at state.
Butler had three RBIs in the regional championship. In a key fifth inning she singled on a hard ground ball to left field that allowed Bella Cabral and Saige Bacon to score the final runs of the contest as CHS would win by a point.
“It’s been a long season, and we’ve worked really hard for this. It was hard after that first game. We were tired, but we came back. We finally got our offense going the way we want it to in the final innings of the last one,” said Butler. “We’re going in there pretty confident and planning to bring it all home.”
Choctaw’s senior trio is excited to make their first state fast pitch appearance, and they hope to lead the team to another title.
“This is the best feeling. My senior class has never been to the state tournament for fast pitch,” said senior catcher Lily West. “The coaches have prepared us. All we can do is go out there and trust our abilities, put it all out there and play like we know how.”
The Lady Jackets have high expectations for the prestigious state tourney.
“We’re going all out and getting that ring. No regrets,” said West.
The Class 6A State Tournament will be played at the Hall of Fame Stadium, 2801 NE 5th St. in Oklahoma City, Oct. 14, 15 and 16.

Thank you for covering Choctaw Lady Jackets softball. And for all the sports. You are doing a great job.
Hello- My name is Vanessa Randolph. I’m looking for any relatives to Bill or Charlotte Louise Mock, unfortunately this is going to be a long post. Charolette, was my Grandmother. She was first married to Willis Catron February 14,1940. But, on their marriage license it shows Louise LaRivera, it also on my mother’s birth ORGINAL BC that I’ve obtained legally, the name “Charolette” was her mother’s name. Which can be confirmed, but on both her Marriage Licenses to Bill and Willis it showes she is marked as “white” when she’s actually Cherokee Native. We believe this may have been because of the times they were in, it was not “acceptable”. She also, had several kids, prior to marrying Bill Mock, unfortunately those kids, plus her son she was pregnant with before her than husband, were placed up for adoption and finalized in around 1953/54 in Pierce County, in Tacoma, Washington at the City Court House. Willis and “Charolette” Louise LaRivera first son, died at age 9, to a drunk driver hitting him, going to pick dry cleaning for their father, which is to believe to had been the beginning of my grandmother being very mentally ill, plus postpartum depression, she and Willis would go on and have several kids, Connie, Judy Ann(my Mother), Bertie, Ronnie, Don, Yvonne, and Julie, and she would be around probably 6/7 months pregnant with her last son, Ron. Ronnie, Don, Paul-Are all deceased. When Wilis, passed, from cancer very fast and sudden, she drove back to Dallas, Oregon with all the kids, and pregnant. For his funeral. With no plan, of not able to raise all the kids on her own. She made a hard choice, giving the kids up. All the adoptions were done and sealed around 1954, not all the kids adoptions were private only two, as far as we know were, my mothers and her sister Connies. After that, the kids never heard or had contact with her. About, age 13 I myself started to try find things. But, since my mother’s adoption was private I had 0. When Washington state made possible to open sealed records I did what had too, I got the BC of my moms, I started the journey, but I wanted more. After 65 years, we had some answers but nothing more. But, when my mother’s adopted mother was killed, I was upset, I never knew her or met her. My mom, had no contact with her, due to the molestation incidents she endured as a kid in her home by her than husband. It seems, that her adoptive parents had collected newspaper records and articles on the Catron Kids, and went for trying to adopt one. They did have a son, but he would be the one to have killed his mother in around 2001. I’ve found found articles about my Aunts and Uncles, I just want a photo of my Grandmother “Charolette” Mock. These articles are from when she was married to my Grandfather, Willis Catron. This is her, obituary when was married to Bill Mock when she passed the day after my 15th birthday. My mother, and her living siblings have reunited.
