There will be a send-off beginning at approximately 3:15 this afternoon for the Poteau Pirates as they leave for tonightâ€™s game at Fort Gibson. Fans are asked to line both sides of North Broadway from Watson Motors to Burger King, and bring signs to display and Pirate flags to wave as the Poteau police and fire departments will escort the teamâ€™s bus out of town.
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.
A â€śThrillerâ€ť to Watch
Although itâ€™s not for the Class 4A state title, Friday nightâ€™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.
