The Spiro Bulldogs football team will get its first chance to perform in a competitive atmosphere tonight when they entertain the Checotah Wildcats at 6:30 p.m. at McClain Stadium.
With a lot of youth on this season's team, Spiro Coach Chris Bunch said he wants to see a good rhythm from his team.
RED OAK â€” The Cameron Yellowjackets found some redemption Thursday afternoon at the Eagle Classic at Eagle Field.
After being run ruled 12-0 in three innings by Oktaha in Wednesday afternoon's opener, the Yellowjackets bounced back with a run-rule victory of their own with a 12-1, four-inning, run-rule win over the Smithville Braves Thursday afternoon.
But the news was not as good for another LeFlore County team as the Howe Lions were run ruled by the host Red Oak Eagles 12-0 in three innings Wednesday afternoon.
The trio of families, the Adamses, the Midgleys and the Wickwares, loaded up and headed to Lake Eufaula on Saturday.
We started over at Eufaula Cove and went to Jellystone Park. They have a â€śWipeout Courseâ€ť out there in the cove, and it's harder than it looks! I was out of breath just after my first pass. They had a huge slide and water trampoline, too!
It costs just $10, and you get to do all the following â€” paddle boats, kayaking, putt-putt, shuffleboard, swimming, arcade and â€” my favorite â€” the snack bar. It's a real cool place to take the kids and have a blast.
