Legislature Honors Hays, O'Neal, Findley

President Emeritus Mike O’Neal and basketball coaches Stephanie (Stark 82) Findley and Dan Hays were honored with citations by the Oklahoma House of Representatives in April.

As the citations were read in the House chamber, Rep. Randy Grau and Rep. Mike Sanders (97) stood with Hays, Findley, O’Neal and John deSteiguer, then OC’s president-elect. The legislature honored O’Neal for his 10 years of distinguished service as OC’s president. Hays’ and Findley’s citations recognized them for holding the state records for most career wins exclusively at an Oklahoma four-year university by a men’s and women’s coach, respectively.

Hays has won 682 games in his 34-year career, including the last 29 seasons at Oklahoma Christian. Findley has won 521 games in 27 seasons, all at Oklahoma Christian.
