The Wister Wildcats and the Howe Lady Lions were each awarded the top seed at the 2013 LeFlore County Junior High Tournament, and they proved Saturday night at Carl Albert State College's Mick Thompson Fieldhouse why they were deserving of their seeding.
The Wildcats had little problem in beating the Heavener Wolves 47-28 in Saturday night's title game. Both teams reached the championship contest with Friday night semifinal wins at Howe â Wister beat Spiro 45-19, while Heavener edged Poteau Pansy Kidd Middle School 32-31.
It was quite a week last week as the 2013 LeFlore County Junior High County Tournament took place, and let me just say thank you to Karen Larosa, Monroe Public Schools superintendent, and coach Casey Hemphill for all their help with getting me daily scores so I could put an updated bracket each night on the Poteau Daily News website.
Congratulations to the Wister Wildcats and Howe Lady Lions for winning county titles this season.
