While Wister High School, and most of LeFlore County's schools for that matter, will be on Spring Break next week, Preston High School is on Spring Break this week.
Thus, the two-day Preston Festival is taking place this week, and the today's final day involves the Lady Wildcats.
Wister, which was scheduled to play in a three-way Thursday at Pocola along with Sallisaw, will meet Henryetta at 12:30 p.m. this afternoon, then meet host Preston at 5 p.m. and Tecumseh at 6:30 p.m.
The Wister junior varsity will play Tecumseh's JV at 2 p.m.
Talihina Boys' Game Moved to Noon
TAHLEQUAH â€” The Poteau Pirates golf team started the season very strong as they were third among Class 5A and 6A golf teams Wednesday afternoon at the Tahlequah Invitational.
The Pirates were third with a score of 343, finishing behind champion Tulsa Bishop Kelley (326) and Tahlequah (340).
But the good news was the two teams ahead of the Pirates were Class 5A teams.
â€śIt was a great start for us,â€ť Poteau Boys Coach Mike Thomas said. â€śWe beat all the Class 4A golf teams in the field.â€ť
One Pirate was among the Top 10 medalists as freshman Cody Shore was ninth with an 83.
A few years ago, Jeff â€śJediâ€ť Dennis and Ed Sockey were working somewhere in Tennessee. They would call me every other day just to check in, and see how I was and what was happening back in good ol' Poteau. I could tell they were homesick â€” I knew they were going to be. I get all beside myself when I get out of LeFlore County!
