It really was not a matter of if, but when Poteau High School graduating senior baseball player Wilson Klutts was going to sign a letter of intent. That date was Monday afternoon at the Poteau High School lobby when he signed to play college baseball with Northeastern Oklahoma State University.
There was one major factor why the Poteau graduate chose the Tahlequah institution.
Several young boy and girl golfers were crowned champions at the sixth annual Mark â€śMud Duckâ€ť Sullivan Junior Golf Tournament, which took place Monday at Choctaw Country Club.
Ryan Ward won the age 12-14 boys division crown, with Robby Turner second and Bryson Terry third.
In the age 9-11 boys division, Parker Killion bested the field of golfers to claim the title, as Justun Coyle was runner-up and Braeden Cepeda came in third.
Brex Caldwell came in first place in the age 8-and-younger division, followed by Connor Whitworth and Tate Weldon.
There were several winners among the record-setting 57 campers at the sixth annual Mark â€śMud Duckâ€ť Sullivan Junior Golf Camp, which took place last month at Choctaw Country Club.
There were four categories of competition â€” putting, chipping, closest to the pin and longest drive â€” in three age divisions â€” ages 12-14, 9-11 and 8 and younger â€” in both boys and girls.
