Marsh's way of thinking

August 16, 2013

Most all of the Poteau Pirates are eagerly awaiting the new district alignments for the 2014-15 seasons. It is for sure that Tulsa Rogers is dropping down, but the status for Tulsa Cascia Hall is still in limbo. Will the Commandos stay in Class 4A or will their private school status and the multplier factor bump them up to Class 5A — or even 6A.
Poteau could get Ada, Tulsa Central, Oologah, Wagoner or Miami in its district. Whatever happens, the district will still be as tough as always — and maybe even tougher.

Shooting sports coming to a school near you

August 15, 2013

School is just around the corner. For the last several years, Wister Schools has participated in the Archery in the Schools Program. Last year, coach John McAlester got to expand that to include a class that included hunter education and explore bowhunting along with Fishing in the Schools.
This year, Wister has been chosen as a pilot school for the new scholastic shooting sports program. These are really neat programs that the kids love and John loves to teach.
Have a great week!
