Summer nearing an end for me; getting ready for 2012-13 athletic season's start; Yours truly will use Panama Preseason Softball Festival to help prepare 2012 Fall Diamond Tab

July 28, 2012

First off, I hope that all of you have had a happy and safe summer break. I've enjoyed the more relaxed stretch of the year when I don't have to worry about high school and Carl Albert State College athletics. There was just enough Legion baseball, camps and golf tournaments to keep me out of trouble.
However, I now have to get back to reality, which is the 2012-13 athletic season is just around the corner. In fact, I'm actually going to start getting ready for it next week.

All-State BB Game capped Howe hoopster's prep career

July 27, 2012

TULSA — Megan Brown’s time of playing basketball goes way back.
She’s been involved, “ever since I could dribble the ball,” she said. “About when I was 3 or 4.”
But Wednesday night marked the last time the Howe High School graduate played an official game on the hardwood, as she played for the East in the All-State Small School Girls Basketball Game at the Oral Roberts University Mabee Center. She got to start and scored just six points. But they were big, consisting of a pair of 3-point baskets. She also made her share of contributions in blocking.
