â€śIt shows how well LeFlore County softball is going,â€ť he said. â€śI think we got some quality players and quality kids. We thought we were going to get two more girls, but we didnâ€™t get them. So, there was even more than what we were expecting to get.â€ť
The 2013 baseball season will begin at 12:30 this afternoon for the Carl Albert State College Vikings with a doubleheader against the University of the Ozarks in Clarksville, Ark.
â€śWe like our team,â€ť said Mark Pollard, who is entering his 31st year as coach of the Vikings and who got his 900th coaching victory last season. â€śThis club wonâ€™t be intimidated because we have enough veterans, and better talent level, to compete. Weâ€™re excited. This club has a chance. The potential is there. We won 37 games last year. This club has a chance for more wins, and pitch better, than that club did.â€ť
