When August 2013 rolled around, there was enthusiasm like no other for every single LeFlore County high school football team â€” as well as every high school team in Oklahoma and the entire country. In getting ready for the season, every single team in America had that one goal â€” winning state.
For the five county teams â€” Poteau (Class 4A), Spiro (Class 3A), Panama (Class 2A), Talihina (Class A) and Arkoma (Class C) â€” who made the playoffs, when they began postseason play Friday night they were among a select few in their respective class who had a shot at the gold ball.
Bokoshe vs. Wister, 6:15 p.m.; Arkoma vs. Cameron, 8:45 p.m.
Howe vs. Keota, 6:15 p.m.; Panama vs. McCurtain, 8;45 p.m.
Howe vs. McCurtain, 5 p.m.; Arkoma vs. Bokoshe, 7:30 p.m.
Cameron vs. Wister, 5 p.m.; Panama vs. Keota, 7:30 p.m.
For the second straight fall fast-pitch softball season, the Panama Lady Razorbacks have an All-Stater.
After Taylor Eaves made All-State last fall, shortstop Stephanie Barcheers did so this fall.
Barcheers, who was a member of the All-LeFlore County Tournament Team, hit .418 with 23 runs batted in and a fielding percentage of .975 as the Lady â€™Backs got to the Class 2A regional final before losing to Colbert after making state the previous two seasons â€” and winning it all in 2011.
