that when asked what is

Poteau Lady Pirate pitcher Brenna Vise had a strong four innings of relief in Monday's come-from-behind win over McAlester in Red Oak. She followed that up with a complete-game victory Tuesday afternoon.
Vise threw a one-hit shutout as the Lady Pirates blanked the Panama Lady Razorbacks 8-0 in a five-inning, run-rule contest.
RED OAK â Things did not look good for the Poteau Lady Pirates in Monday's game against the McAlester Lady Buffaloes. Little did the Lady Buffs know that was right where the Lady Pirates wanted them.
Poteau rallied from a 5-0 deficit to down McAlester 6-5 in eight innings.
Heavener 4, Wister 0: In Wister, the Lady Wolves (9-2) broke a scoreless tie with a single run in the third inning and three runs in the fourth inning.
Arkoma 16, Gans 4; Arkoma 16, Gans 4: In Arkoma, big first innings helped the Lady Mustangs (5-7) win their third straight game.
HAWORTH â Both Poteau High School cross country teams were third in the first meet of the season, Monday afternoon's Haworth Lions Invitational.
In the boys' division, the Pirates were third with 59 points, coming in behind DeQueen, Ark. (25 points) and host Haworth (50).
Individually for the Pirates, Nico Hall was third (15:25), while Daniel Stacy was 15th (17:02) as two Poteau runners made the top 15.
In the girls' division, it was the same. DeQueen won the meet (38 points), followed by Haworth (57) and Poteau (74).
WISTER â The Wister Wildcats took out their frustration in losing to Dale in the title game of the Tournament of Champions Saturday afternoon at El Reno's Redlands Community College on the Howe Lions.
The âCats swept a pair of games from the Lions by scores of 23-0 in a three-inning, run-rule game, followed by an 11-1 five-inning, run-rule contest.
Cameron 6, Whitesboro 1; Cameron 12, Okay 3; Whitesboro 6, Okay 5: In Cameron, the Yellowjackets (8-3) ran their winning streak to five games with their two wins in Monday's home three-way.
At 4 p.m. Thursday, history will be made by the Heavener High School athletic program.
That time will mark the beginning of the first-ever cross country season at the school as the Wolves and Lady Wolves will run at the Tahlequah âEarly Tigerâ Meet.
The teams will be coached by Kristen Andrews. She has had quite a start to the first-ever program, as both teams will field a complete team and not just have a few individuals. Last fall, there were four junior high girls who ran, but never in an organized meet. This fall, it's a complete turnaround.
WILBURTON â The Howe Lady Lions came in runners-up in the White Bracket title game as they lost 14-5 to the Crowder Demonettes Saturday night in the Robbers Cave Shootout.
The Lady Lions reached the title game with a 20-2 rout of the Haileyville Lady Warriors Friday night.
