POCOLA â€” The Poteau Lady Pirates softball team welcomed pitcher RaeLynn Caldwell back to the pitching circle Monday afternoon when her team faced the Pocola Lady Indians. She seemed to pick up right where she left off.
After not pitching for about two weeks due to arm stiffness, Caldwell pitched four innings and got her 10th win of the season as the Lady Pirates downed the Lady Indians 8-1.
It's here. Next week will be the 2011 LeFlore County Fast-Pitch Softball Tournament at the Poteau Area Recreational Complex. Games will begin Monday and end with the championship game (or games) on Thursday, Sept. 15.

But this fall's event could be very interesting. Spiro, the No. 2 seed, has fallen to Poteau twice â€” each time by a single run.
Panama, the No. 3 seed, only got beat by Poteau 3-0 in last month's Lady â€™Back Classic, but the Lady Pirates did run rule them about a week later.

The good news was the Pokes handled the Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns 61-34 Saturday night at Boone Pickens Stadium. However, while there were some good things Gundy saw, he also saw some not-so-good things.
