TAHLEQUAH â€” In the first cross country meet in Heavener High School history, the Wolves and Lady Wolves were both eighth in the Tahlequah Early Tiger Invitational Thursday afternoon.
In the boys' division, the Wolves were eighth with 221 points. Tulsa Union won the team title with 35 points, followed by host Tahlequah (37 points), Lincoln Christian (58), Jay (139), Claremore (162), Muskogee (172) and Sallisaw (217).
In 2012 and 2013, when the Heavener Wolves and the Spiro Bulldogs meet on the gridiron, it will be a District 3A-8 contest.
However, when they meet at 6:30 p.m. tonight at Spiro's McClain Stadium, it will only be the final preseason scrimmage for the upcoming 2011 season â€” which begins next week.
As long as First-Year Panama Razorbacks Football Coach Brandon Ellis keeps seeing his players improve, he'll be a happy camper. He will really be a happy camper if he sees that improvement happen in tonight's scrimmage against Warner at 6 p.m. at George Ollie Stadium.
â€śWe've made our corrections from the mistakes we saw last week,â€ť Ellis said. â€śThe main focus this week is to learn from our mistakes and not see those mistakes this week. I'm anxious to see how well we pick up on that.â€ť
Admission to tonight's scrimmage will be towels for the Hogs to use during this upcoming season.
SPIRO â€” The Spiro Lady Bulldogs continued their winning ways Tuesday afternoon as they defeated the Pocola Lady Indians 8-3.
Heavener 13, Whitesboro 0: In Whitesboro, the Lady Wolves (10-2) jumped out to a 9-0 lead in the opening inning and never looked back.
Wister 17, Smithville 2: In Smithville, since the Lady Wildcats (4-5) could not play their game at Talihina due to the Lady Golden Tigers not having enough players because of an injury, they headed into northern McCurtain County and handled the Lady Braves.
Tuesday afternoon's Leflore Savages baseball game at Indianola was canceled. The game will be rescheduled, but no date was told The Poteau Daily News by this edition's press time.
It is the second game this week which was canceled as the Savages' road game Monday afternoon at Smithville was cancelled.
The Savages will try to play a game this week when they play Varnum at 6:30 p.m. tonight in the opening round of the Calvin Tournament. The title game is scheduled for 5 p.m. Saturday.
Sometimes it can be just as important to keep things going the way they are as it is to just improve. That seems to be the case with the Poteau Pirates football team, which will be in its final preseason scrimmage of the season at approximately 5 p.m. today against the host Tahlequah Tigers and the Miami Wardogs at Gable Field at Doc Wadley Stadium on the campus of Northeastern Oklahoma State University.
