Crossings Christian Gauntlet and OK Novice Championships
2020 — Oklahoma City, OK/US
Welcome to the Crossings Christian Gauntlet and Oklahoma Novice State Championships!
We have all 14 OSSAA events in 5A, 6A, Champs, and will crown state champions in the Novice division. We are very happy to reward all the hard work the novices have done throughout the fall semester and want to recognize them with this special division. Each champion will have a specialized trophy. Please keep in mind that the Novice State Championships are NOT affiliated with OSSAA.
