The Carl Albert State College Vikings will open their 2012-13 basketball season at 8 p.m. Thursday against North Arkansas for homecoming at Mick Thompson Fieldhouse.
The Vikings will face a pretty solid opponent in North Arkansas.

I hope everyone enjoyed all the youth pictures last week, and my column on Thursday will have more. More will be in Saturday's edition.

Most important football game of season Friday night for Spiro; Bulldogs entertain Checotah Wildcats for Senior Night, shot at third place in District 3A-8

October 31, 2012

The good news is the Spiro Bulldogs are in the Class 3A playoffs, no matter what they do in Friday's home finale against the Checotah Wildcats at 7:30 p.m. at McClain Stadium. However, they want to end the regular season on a high note, and not just to win their home finale or make Senior Night memorable for the Class of 2013.
“You don't want to go into the playoffs with a loss,” said Chris Bunch, Spiro's coach. “It's a very important game for us to win. Checotah is a good team, and I think it's going to be a tough game.”
