JENKS â Poteau Lady Pirate golfer Hannah Ward did it the hard way, but she won yet another tournament.
Ward, who won the Class 4A State Tournament last month in Oklahoma City, had to go through a six-hole playoff to win the George Phillips Junior South Central Professional Golf Association Tournament Wednesday.
Ward, who birdied three of the last four holes in the six-hole playoffs, won the girls age 15-18 division with a score of 74.
Two other Poteau golfers were in the boys age 15-18 division. Cody Shore shot an 72 and placed fourth, while Ryan Ward carded an 88.
The LeFlore County Bass Club had its eighth, and final, tournament of the 2012 circuit Sunday at Applegate Cove on Robert S. Kerr Reservoir. There were 50 anglers in 27 boats who caught 83 fish weighing a collective 189.41 pounds. The average fish weighed 2.28 pounds, and 12 limits were caught.
Besting the field was the duo of Robbie âBokosheâ Brassfield and Keith âStoneâ Jones, whose winning stringer weighed 14.94 pounds to earn them $625.
For the fourth and fifth times this season, the Eastern Oklahoma Riverdawgs Major American Legion baseball team came out on the short end against Kerwins.
In Tuesday's doubleheader at Poteau High School's Town Creek Park, Kerwins beat the Riverdawgs 12-2 in the opener, then run ruled the locals 13-3 in five innings in the nightcap.
The Riverdawgs will return to action at 2 p.m. Saturday in Cameron as they entertain the Oklahoma City Bulls for a doubleheader.
I finally got to do some serious fishing last week with my cousin, Russell Broussard, on one day, and my good friend, Dean Armstrong, on another day.
Cash and I headed over to Sebastian Lake with Dean, and fished for about three hours before a storm blew in and ran us off the lake. We did manage to catch several small fish before we had to abandon the lake due to the weather.
