Mother Nature rains out Thursday games; Thursday's Keota Invitational games rescheduled for today

August 12, 2011

While weeks went by without rain, the rains indeed came Thursday afternoon. It came so much that the slate of games for Thursday were rained out.
Softball games rained out were Wister at Poteau, Leflore at Quinton, Whitesboro at Buffalo Valley and the Keota Invitational — where Arkoma, Howe, Pocola, Spiro and Talihina were playing.
Two baseball games were washed out completely — Cameron at Panola and Howe at Smithville.
Whitesboro's baseball game against Clayton in the Buffalo Valley festival was suspended by rain, with Clayton leading 2-1.

Poteau cross country teams' practice meet Saturday morning

August 12, 2011

The 2011 Poteau Practice Cross Country Meet will begin at 8 a.m. Saturday at the Poteau Area Recreational Complex.
The Pirates and Lady Pirates, coached by Tim Hall, will have two other teams competing with them — Heavener and Haworth.
The Lady Pirates were seventh at last year's state meet at Edmond's Mitch Park, while the Pirates were ninth.
While Heavener did not have a high school team last fall, a junior high team existed. Now, there is going to be a high school team this year under the coaching of Kristen Andrews.

Local church golf teams win league titles this summer

The Choctaw Country Club's Church League Golf completed Aug. 1, which completed its sixth season of existence. The league lasts eight weeks each summer, and has been a big success — and has grown each year.
The league divides its 18 teams into three flights after six weeks of play.

Summer's over (sort of) — school started Thursday

August 12, 2011

I can't believe that school has started already! Where did summer go? I know a lot of you folks have kids going off to college, too. It must be tough for those parents to see them go, unless they're going to Carl Albert State College. They call it “The Empty Nest Syndrome.” I think it's harder on mothers than fathers. But hang in there parents, it will be all right because you have total control over the remote control to your TV and you can watch football all the time.
