Down to six teams, five of which could make state

February 29, 2012

LeFlore County now has six high school basketball teams still alive in the playoffs — Poteau's girls (Class 4A), Spiro's teams (Class 3A), Howe's girls (Class 2A), Talihina's girls (Class 2A) and Wister's boys (Class 2A).
As I stated in the headline of today's column, five of these schools have a shot at making next week's state tournaments.
You wonder why not all six? That is because if the Lady Lions and the Lady Golden Tigers win their playoff games on Thurdsay, they will meet each other Friday afternoon — and one will knock the other out of the postseason.

It's been quite a season on the hardwood

February 29, 2012

With only a hand full of the county teams still alive in the basketball playoffs, I thought it would be neat to reflect on this season.
I was impressed with the set of guards the Arkoma Lady Mustangs have in place with Shaylea Whisenhunt and Abby Gragg, and their future in appears to be set.
Benny Torpe, the Danish exchange student, was a force, but if she wants to play at a higher level she needs to have more than a left-handed drive to the bucket.
I was impressed with the Pansy Kidd Middle School eighth-grade Raiders and Lady Raiders basketball team.

February 28, 2012

The Carl Albert State College baseball team suffered its first losses of the season over the weekend on a two-city, three-game Texas trip.
The trip ended Sunday with a 9-2 loss to Northeast Texas in Mount Pleasant.
On Saturday, the Vikings split a doubleheader on the road against Tyler, Texas, winning the opener 4-1 but losing the nightcap in heartbreaking fashion 4-3.

Poteau matman repeats at state champion, named 4A Outstanding Wrestler

February 28, 2012

OKLAHOMA CITY — Up until last year, there was only one Poteau Pirate who had won a state wrestling title — Jerry Collins in 1998.
Then last year, then Poteau sophomore Tyler Tustin, who happens to be Collins' cousin, won state at 130 pounds. Now a junior, Tustin made some more history Saturday night in the Class 4A State Tournament at State Fair Arena.
Tustin repeated as state champion, winning the 132-pound state final match 2-1 over Newcastle's Steven Fernandez, to become Poteau's only two-time state champion
