Poteau baseball coach heading to Greenwood for softball

May 17, 2012

For most people, when to make a change can be a hard decision to make. Just take Poteau Pirates Baseball Coach Ronnie Sockey.
After being at Poteau for 13 seasons, 11 of which was also spent as assistant fast-pitch softball coach, Sockey has decided it's time for a change. He accepted the job as the new fast-pitch softball coach at Greenwood (Ark.) High School.

Baiting, baseball and summer day trips

May 17, 2012

As I promised, I have more information regarding the baiting in the Wildlife Management Areas. I had a visit with James Lockhart in Shawnee last week on the way to the Class 2A State Tournament, and we had the opportunity to discuss the issue a little bit. He told me I needed to contact Jerry Ellis who is the vice chairman of tourism and wildlife in the senate.
I have not talked to Ellis yet, but I am planning on giving him a call — and you should do the same, if you have questions about the change in the baiting rule.

Arkoma interteam football scrimmage gives Mustangs a hoof up on next season

May 16, 2012

When the Arkoma Mustangs football team had its Blue-White Scrimmage Monday night at Mustang Field, Coach Mark Weatherton saw both good and not-as-good things.
For starters, all players saw a lot of action.
“I was really pleased,” he said. “We don't have a lot of players, so we needed to get some reps — and we got reps. We got a chance to work on the stuff we had to work on. We didn't get any injuries. It went well.”

Thunder showing Lakers they may be better team

May 16, 2012

OKLAHOMA CITY — Los Angeles Lakers didn’t stand a chance, and I really don’t think they have a prayer in this series.
The Oklahoma City Thunder came in to the second round of the Western Conference Playoffs well-rested, and the Lakers came in fresh off a grueling seven-game series with the Denver Nuggets — not to mention the whole Metta World Peace-James Harden incident from their previous meeting looming over this series.

Wister boys lose to Silo in 2A state semifinals

May 15, 2012

OKLAHOMA CITY — When this run of five straight baseball state tournament appearances began in the spring of 2010 for the Wister Wildcats, that season's 2010 Class 2A State Tournament and the fall 2010 Class A State Tournament, the Wildcats suffered losses to the same team — the Silo Rebels. The same ill fate happened to the ’Cats this past weekend.
The Rebels used a six-run fourth inning, then held off Wister potential rallies, to down the Wildcats 7-5 in the Class 2A State Tournament semifinals on a chilly, drizzly Friday night at Dolese Park.

Things didn't quite end the way we hoped this past weekend

May 15, 2012

LeFlore County had two baseball teams — the Wister Wildcats (Class 2A) and the Spiro Bulldogs (Class 3A) — represent us at this past weekend's state tournaments. The bad news was that either, or both, could not come home with the state championship trophy.
The ’Cats got beat by Silo in Friday night's state semifinals, while the ’Dogs suffered a state-quarterfinal loss to Verdigris Thursday night.
