The good news was that no LeFlore County baseball or softball team lost their games Thursday afternoon. But they didn't win them, either.

Baseball games rained out Thursday were Heavener at Poteau, Cameron at Pocola, Howe and Battiest at Leflore, Union Christian, Ark., at Arkoma, Hartford, Ark., at Panama and Spiro at Tulsa Union.
Nominations are currently being accepted for the 2012 Poteau High School Sports Hall of Fame.
