In the Civil War, the North prevailed over the South. However, in Tuesday night's LeFlore County All-Star Basketball Games at Carl Albert State College's Mick Thompson Fieldhouse, it was the South that rose over the North â€” rather convincingly.
The South boys routed the North 83-44, while the South girls defeated the North 67-40.
For 10 days, the Poteau Pirates football team has gone through spring drills. The Pirates will cap off the 10-day period with Thursday night's Red-White Spring Game at 6:30 p.m. at Costner Stadium.
â€śThings have gone well,â€ť said first-year Poteau coach Greg Werner. â€śWe scrimmaged Monday, and we kind of saw where we're at. [Tuesday] we didn't get to get outside because of the weather, but we were inside watching film. We got outside [Wednesday].

The first annual Carl Albert State College/Poteau High School Softball Camp will be from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday and Friday at the Poteau High School softball field.
The camp was to have started today, but due to Monday and Tuesday rain showers, the field was unfit to have the camp begin today.
Cost is $40 per camper. If a family has more than one child, it will be $35 a child, and a group discount of $35 a child for teams that send at least five or more off a team.
