Wister seniors glad another trip to state is forthcoming

October 5, 2011

WISTER — The streak of trips to the state tournament is now at four for the Wister Wildcats baseball team. But it almost didn't happen.
In last week's Class A Regional Tournament in Wister, the Wildcats were shocked in their opener by county rival Cameron — which had lost all the previous games to Wister — to drop into the loser's bracket of the regional. Wister had to win twice on the final day, outlasting Wright City and then avenging the loss to Cameron by beating the Yellowjackets in the consolation championship game, to earn another trip to state.

For Arkoma Mustangs, then there's Maud

October 5, 2011

For those who remember actress Beatrice Arthur's “All in the Family” spin-off of the 1970s, “Maude,” remember the theme song — which its lyrics say, “Then there's Maude.”
The Arkoma Mustangs football team might be singing a similar song this week, with the lyrics saying, “Then there's Maud” — as in the Maud Tigers.
The Mustangs will pay a visit to the Tigers for a crucial District C-4 contest at 7:30 p.m. Friday in Maud.

Then, there were three teams left

October 4, 2011

Just think, a couple of weeks ago, there were 12 LeFlore County fast-pitch softball teams and all five fall baseball teams still playing. Now, we're down to three.
The Panama Lady Razorbacks (Class 2A) and Wister Wildcats (Class A) are at their respective state tournaments, while the Poteau Lady Pirates will finally play some postseason games this week as they were named a Class 4A Regional Tournament host team.

October 4, 2011

NORMAN — Saturday night's game at Owen Field against the Ball State Cardinals could have been a scary game.
