Carl Albert State Collegeâ€™s newly formed Viking Golf Club is preparing for their first match in March.
The club began last semester when a group of students approached Hank Austin about the possibility of a golf club at CASC. According to Austin, who is the sponsor of the club, he made a proposal to the college and then to Choctaw Country Clubâ€™s Board of Directors. Choctaw Country Club has agreed to be the home course, and has generously offered a deal for CASC student golfers to play at the course.

Today, I just want to take the time to remember a gentleman who is one of a kind.
James Houston â€śHootâ€ť Jackson was born July 1, 1940 and went on to be with the Lord on Sunday, Feb. 19, 2012.
He was the last great cowboy of his generation, and he told his stories with such enthusiasm.
â€śHoot,â€ť you will be dearly missed, and I was proud to call you my friend.
Easy, easy partner â€” rest in peace, â€śHooterâ€ť!
