The Tigers swept the Wildcats by scores of 5-0 and 13-5.
Games Canceled Due to Wet Fields
Several games were canceled due to wet fields both Saturday and Monday.
When I first heard the news of Adrian Peterson being arrested for child abuse, I thought, it can't get any worse than this â€” and then I got the details of what he did.
He did nothing more than switch his child. A form of discipline that he grew up with and what probably made him the player and the person he is today. He left a few welts on his child's legs.
My goodness, one time my grandmother switched me, and I thought was going to kill me.
Why is everybody getting their panties in a wad about AD for disciplining his child and calling for the reinstatement of Ray Rice?
ADA â€” Poteauâ€™s Kandace Standridge, who was the Class 4A 800-meter run state champion, won the East Central University Invitational cross country meet Thursday, running the course in 13:09.
As a team, the Lady Pirates were fourth with 121 points, finishing behind host Ada (61 points), Kingston (97) and DeQueen, Ark. (104).
Standridge was joined by teammate Sheridan Hoyer in the top 10, as the Poteau senior was ninth (14:40).
There should have been the opening-day games of the 2014 LeFlore County Fast-Pitch Softball Tournament tonight. However, Mother Nature had other ideas.
Due to wet fields, todayâ€™s opening-day games were postponed until Tuesday, with Tuesdayâ€™s originally-slated games taking place Thursday. Thursdayâ€™s games will take place Monday, meaning it will be next week before the county champion will be crowned.
