EDMOND â€” The Poteau Lady Pirates and Pirates cross country runners wanted to run their best races of the season in Saturday afternoon's Class 4A State Meet at Mitch Park. For the most part, they did.

FORT GIBSON â€” I have never seen that many points scored in a football game as the amount of points the scoreboard saw here Friday night between the Poteau Pirates and the homestanding Fort Gibson Tigers, which was won by the Tigers 59-56.
Today marks the beginning of a new month. It also marks when high school basketball and college basketball begins in LeFlore County.
Three of the five non-football schools â€” Leflore, Whitesboro and Wister â€” begin tonight, while Cameron and Howe will begin on Friday. Wister's teams will be in the Preston Festival Friday and Saturday, facing host teams Preston (Friday) and Haworth (Saturday).
After coaching the Whitesboro Bulldogs on the baseball field and the basketball court, Coach Bryan Cartwright is switching things up this high school hoop season.
Cartwright will take over coaching the Lady Bulldogs from Katie Blagg this season, which will begin at 6:30 p.m. tonight in the season opener at home against Battiest.
