Preston Jump Rope Team crowned winners for third straight year

Team members are shown with the signed guitar that will be raffled to help pay for their trip to the World Jump Championship in Orlando, Fla.

Preston Jump Rope Team is the reigning Best Overall Champions for the third year in a row at the 3rd annual Jump Rope Competition held recently in Seminole. The team dominated in all six events: single rope speed, 3-minute speed, 4-person speed relay, double under relay, double-dutch single speed, and double-dutch partner speed.

Some team members will be joining the Mvskoke Nation Scissortails, which is Oklahoma's jump rope competition team. They will be competing July 1-7 at the World Jump Rope Championship in Orlando, Fla. 

Residents can help make this endeavor happen for them by a donation when you purchase a coupon for $1 each or 12 for $10 that offers an individual a chance to win an autographed guitar by George Strait, as pictured with the World Team, or an autographed official OKC Thunder jersey by Terrance Ferguson. Also, the coupon offers a discount to Okmulgee's newest restaurant, Tavern 56. Drawings will be June 9 and you do not have to be present to win. 

Tickets are available at Tavern 56 or contact coaches Vicky Graham at or Trish Skupien.
