It wasn't the performance that everyone was shooting for this evening, but despite the 100+ temperatures, the extra housing move, and other challenges, OC pushed through and advanced further with a score of 75.55. We greatly thank our new Oklahoma fans for your support! Now, the 6 hour overnight trek to Little Rock Arkansas and the great War Memorial Stadium. Arkansas... HERE WE COME! http://www.dci.org/scores/index.cfm?year=2014&event=84e230f6-b4f1-4163-af1b-036710071190
