Better late than never

September 8, 2012

First of all, let me say I'm sorry about the lateness of the Week 1 Gridiron Notes Column. My goal is to get it in either Wednesday's or Thursday's or Friday's edition. However, it will always run by no later than the Saturday edition after the previous week's game — like this is today.
I believe that it's more important to wait to make sure I have all the information I need for it and run it in a Saturday edition than to rush putting it in an earlier edition and leave someone out who is deserving of being part of the individual lists, which you will see below.

High School Softball Roundup

ARKOMA — Due to the rainstorm which moved into LeFlore County on Friday, the Wister-Arkoma Green Valley Conference doubleheader was rained out.
The Lady Wildcats had a 4-1 lead when the Lady Mustangs were coming to bat in the bottom of the second inning when the rainstorm stopped the game. Since the game had not gone the necessary innings to be a complete game, it was considered a rainout. No make-up date has been set for the conference twinbill.
Whitesboro 6, Smithville 0: Friday in Whitesboro, the Lady Bulldogs (4-9) won back-to-back games in as many days.

Several events are in the works in honor of William Elijah Lyon, affectionately named Liam, who was born Feb. 18, 2011 with a fatal heart condition. Liam’s journey was followed by people all over the world on the two Facebook pages dedicated to him. The support of his extended Facebook family has helped the family a great deal during his struggles and it continues today.
