Poteau teams sweep Heavener

January 15, 2013

HEAVENER — All that matters is leading at the final buzzer. Just ask the Poteau Pirates.
After trailing for the majority of Friday night’s game against the Heavener Wolves, up stepped an unlikely hero for the Pirates.
Junior Jarrett Lowrimore went coast-to-coast for the game-winning layup with two seconds left to give the Pirates a 44-43 victory.
The Lady Pirates gave Poteau a sweep on the night as they handled the Lady Wolves 62-42.

Oh, No You're Not!

One county tournament down, one more to go

January 14, 2013

It was quite a week last week as the 2013 LeFlore County Junior High County Tournament took place, and let me just say thank you to Karen Larosa, Monroe Public Schools superintendent, and coach Casey Hemphill for all their help with getting me daily scores so I could put an updated bracket each night on the Poteau Daily News website.
Congratulations to the Wister Wildcats and Howe Lady Lions for winning county titles this season.
