Ogle Madness: West Region, Second Round

So yesterday we had our first nail-biter of the Field of 32 with Brent Skarky taking Toby Rowland down to the wire. Granted, it was controversial, but it was good to finally have a close match. Also, other than Curtis Fitzpatrick or Clark Matthews' hair stylist, can anyone name me a more perfect Cinderella than Brent Skarky?

Anyway, today's match-ups are:

    • (1) Brad Henry vs. (9) Jamie Ceretta
    • (4) Jessica Schambach vs. (5) Mark Rodgers
    • (3) Wayne Coyne vs (6) Mike Gundy
    • (2) Bob Stoops vs. (7) Linda Cavanaugh

After the jump, we visit the Cowchip Festival in Beaver to check out the action.
