Poteau golfer wins OJGT State Tournament title

October 19, 2011

Poteau Lady Pirate sophomore golfer Hannah Ward won the Oklahoma Junior Golf Tournament of Champions last weekend at Tulsa's Page Belcher. She competed against the top 27 young female golfers in the state, and came out on top with a score of 75-76—151.
Needless to say, it was a unique experience for the sophomore golfer.
“I was thrilled to win the tournament this weekend,” Ward said. “I was very surprised to win. I went into the tournament with a positive attitude and determination to stay focused. My greatest fear was that I would get frustrated and give up, but I didn't.”

Clarification

October 19, 2011

In Tuesday's edition, incorrect information appeared in the story about the Heavener cross country runners participating at the Class 3A Regional Meet.
This year, only the top five teams at the regional meet qualified all their runners to state. Since the Lady Wolves were sixth and the Wolves seventh, they did not make state as a complete team.
Only one Heavener runner, Jose Farias, qualified for this weekend's Class 3A State Meet at 2 p.m. Saturday at Shawnee's Gordon Cooper Vo-Tech Center.

Poteau Bandit League teams sweep Stilwell

October 19, 2011

STILWELL — The third-grade, fourth-grade and sixth-grade Poteau Bandit League teams posted wins Saturday in Stilwell.
The third-grade defeated Stilwell 6-0 as Colton Williamson scored on the third play of the game, a 61-yard scamper to pay dirt. From there, it was a defensive tussle — and it was defense which iced the game for Poteau.
Jordan Tom recovered a Stilwell fumble which was caused by Jacques Adams with 1:27 left to play, and Poteau ran out the clock.

Another District C-4 showdown for Arkoma Mustangs — this week, it's Webbers Falls Warriors

October 19, 2011

Last week, the Arkoma Mustangs, although slow starting, pulled away from the Midway Chargers to end up mercy ruling them 86-36 last Friday night at home in a battle of District C-4 heavyweights.
“It was back and forth,” Arkoma Coach Mark Weatherton said. “They were stuffing it down our throats. It was only 30-28 in the second quarter, and I was nervous. We then reeled off 42 straight points, and then I felt better. We played a good game, and it was nice to get a big win like that over a pretty good team.”

Spiro in must-win situation Thursday night at Valliant

October 19, 2011

The Spiro Bulldogs made it all the way to the Class 3A state quarterfinals a season ago. If they want to even think about postseason play this season, they must win out.

Spiro lost 34-18 to the district-leading Seminole Chieftains last week at McClain Stadium. It was a game in which the ’Dogs were their own worse enemy.
