It's hard to believe it's been 12 months, but it has. The 2012 LeFlore County Tournament got under way Monday at three sites â€” host Bokoshe, Heavener and Spiro.
I have to admit, I've been rather highly anticipating this year's event. Last year was my first County Tournament, and I had a blast. Now, that doesn't mean to say that I wasn't worn out at week's end mind you, but I thoroughly enjoyed the week.
MULDROW â€” The Poteau High School teams did not get the kind of send off into this week's LeFlore County Tournament they would have liked Friday night.
The PHS teams suffered a pair of losses on the road to Muldrow. The Bulldogs handled the Pirates 50-35, while the Lady Bulldogs took care of the Lady Pirates 42-28.
HOWE â€” It was a happy homecoming for the Howe High School basketball teams Friday night at the Howe Gym as they took a pair of games from Cameron.
The Lions avenged an earlier loss to the Yellowjackets by holding off the visitors 60-56 in the first game of the night, then the Lady Lions took care of the Lady â€™Jackets 65-24.
During the homecoming ceremonies, Howe Girls Coach Chris Brown was recognized by several of his former players for his 300th coaching win last month in the title game of the Wilburton Tournament.
Alumni football is coming to Poteau. Gridiron Alumni is planning several full contact alumni football games.
Gridiron Alumni travels the nation pitting old football rivals against each other one more time. Players are needed to sign up, and the first 40 players on each team get to play.
The team that gets 30 people registered first gets home-field advantage. Last year, hundreds of players and thousands of fans swarmed stadiums to watch their home town heroes strap it on one more time.
This year, Gridiron Alumni would like to bring alumni football to the whole state of Oklahoma.
