Dale Jr. vs. Stricklands at Vike@Nite 5k race

October 31, 2014

The Vike@Nite 5k was Oct. 23, and our whole family ran in it. When we got to the starting line, I hit the music on my phone, and I was planning on flying down the course.
Just around the first mile, I thought I had a good pace going when Creassia Strickland pulled up beside me, running with her son, Jackson, in one of those three-wheeled baby strollers.

Poteau, Fort Gibson in District 4A-4 showdown Friday night

October 30, 2014

Although it’s not for the Class 4A state title, Friday night’s game has the feel of such a contest with that kind of caliber.
The 10th-ranked Poteau Pirates will travel to meet the second-ranked Fort Gibson Tigers at 7:30 p.m. Friday. The game has monumental district-title implications for both the Pirates (5-3, 4-1 in district play) and the Tigers (8-0, 5-0). The winner will likely end up as the District 4A-4 champion, and get the top playoff seed in the district.
