Both pool winners suffered defeats Saturday afternoon here at the Gilmer 7 on 7 State Qualifying Tournament and the runners-up in their respective pools qualified for the 7 on 7 State Tournament in College Station next month.
Gilmer, which had gone undefeated in pool play here Saturday morning, fell to White Oak in overtime, 21-20, while Pittsburg, which won the pool held at Pirate Stadium, fell to Palestine.
The Buckeyes will attempt to qualify for state again on Saturday, June 18, at the Spring Hill SQT.
