CLAFLIN — The summer Solstice of 2017 ( June 21) was a special day for the Lady Oilers of Central Plains, as the girls returned to the Oilerdome to pick up their Kansas 2A State basketball championship rings. The Lady Oilers began a tradition of purchasing championship rings with their first State basketball title in the 2013-14 season.

For CPHS graduates Cassidy Crites, Kylee Kasselman and Janae Ryan, it was their fourth consecutive basketball ring gathering, as the Lady O’s have dominated the 2A bracket since the 2013-14 school year, winning four consecutive State 2A titles; three perfect undefeated seasons and a 103-1 compiled four-year record. The current Lady Oiler winning streak is at 64-0.
