Oklahoma City_Oklahoma veterans bested Oklahoma governors in this year's veterans domino tournament.  Philip Jones and Stephen Nida from the Ardmore veterans' center beat Gov. Brad Henry and former Gov. George Nigh in the annual domino tournament held in the State Capitol Blue Room on Tuesday.

Each year, Oklahoma veterans centers host tournaments that ultimately crown a champion veteran domino team from each center.  Those teams then face off in a one-day competition at the State Capitol. As the winners of those championship rounds, the Ardmore team played Governors Henry and Nigh and won the coveted Governor's Cup.

"I am proud to carry on this great tradition to honor Oklahoma's veterans," Gov. Henry said. "They have done so much for our country, protected the freedoms we each enjoy, and as Veterans Day approaches, this is just a small way to show our appreciation for their service."

The Oklahoma Department of Veteran Affairs, the Nigh Institute and the governor's office are sponsored the tournament.
From the Office of Governor Brad Henry
