JAY, Okla. (AP) - A 15yearold girl from Delaware County has died during a gigging tournament in northeastern Oklahoma.

Delaware County sheriff's Detective Ron Teel said overnight campers went to wake the girl up Saturday morning but then realized she was dead. The girl's identity has not been released, but Sheriff Jay Blackfox said she is of American Indian descent and is from the rural Salina area.

Teel said there were no signs of foul play.

The two day tournament, in which participants use a spear or claw device to impale fish or frogs, began Friday night.
