CAMERON â€” Austin Standridge's two-run home run in the sixth inning ended the game by run rule as the Cameron Yellowjackets defeated the Whitesboro Bulldogs 18-10 Tuesday night.

Can you believe summer vacation is over? It's time once more for action on the diamond as the 2011 fast-pitch softball and fall baseball seasons will begin today. The schedule for this week and next Monday will be at the end of the column.
While a lot of you are familiar with this column, for those who are new I'll explain the purposes of the weekly Diamond Notes Column.
Besides always listing the schedule of games from Tuesday through the following Monday each week, I'll mention upcoming events, the ins and outs and sometimes will lend itself for a feature on an area athlete(s).

PANAMA â€” While a lot of high schoolers were enjoying a relaxing, albeit hot, July on their summer break, Panama Lady Razorback softball player Taylor Eaves did anything but relax. The Lady â€™Back junior played in two national tournaments â€” one in Denver and one in New York City.
The Sparkler Tournament was first up in Denver.
And there wasn't much rest for Eaves before her New York adventure.
â€śI went to Colorado for a week,â€ť the Panama Lady â€™Back softballer said. â€śThen, I came home for five days, then went to New York.â€ť
Three LeFlore County high school football teams, the Pocola Indians, the Talihina Golden Tigers and the Heavener Wolves will get their 2011 practices under way with â€śMidnight Madnessâ€ť practices â€” like they did a season ago.
However, Heavener's will be at 12:01 a.m. Friday â€” the first day in which players can put pads on after going three first three days of practice in just helmets and shorts.
If you're a high school football player or coach, Tuesday, Aug. 9, 2011 has been circled on the calendar for quite some time. That is the day which high school football teams can begin practicing for their 2011 seasons, which officially begin in September.
