The Carl Albert State College softball team will begin its 2014 season with its own two-day festival today and Saturday at the CASC Softball Field. The festival was to have been at the Poteau Area Recreational Complex, but had to be moved â€” and the field of teams reduced â€” due to wet fields.
Nonetheless, CASC coach David Holt is ready to get the season going, and the Lady Vikings need to get going [with our season].
POCOLA â€” The Heavener Lady Wolves picked up a road win Tuesday night, downing the Pocola Lady Indians 54-41 at the Pocola Gym.
The Lady Wolves jumped out to a 12-5 lead after a period, but weren't able to put the Lady Indians away until the final period. Leading 33-25 after three quarters, Heavener outscored Pocola 21-14 in the final period to seal the deal.
I went to the District Automotive Service Contest at Kiamichi Technology Center, where there were 36 contestants from Sallisaw, Tahlequah, Stilwell, Stigler, Atoka, McAlester and Idabel. The top three placers qualified for the state contest later this year.
In the high school division, Tahlequah's Ray Mullins won first place, with Atoka's Lucas Reece second and Stilwell's Chris Valdez third.
Idabel's Jimmy Smith won the adult class division, with Tahlequah's Robert Suarez runner-up and Stilwell's Jacob Ketcher third.
Save the world, recycle.
God bless our troops and veterans.
The Hodgen Lady Bulldogs and the Monroe Eagles are a win away from making state.
The Lady Bulldogs will have that chance tonight in the Organization of Rural Elementary Schools [ORES] playoffs when they take on Moffett at 7 p.m. at Liberty School with the winner advancing to the Division II State Tournament.
The Eagles, the 2014 LeFlore County Junior High Tournament champions, will play Grant at 8 p.m. Friday in the Division III playoffs for a berth in the state tournament.
