HEAVENER â€” The Spiro Bulldogs, who were runners-up in last year's LeFlore County Baseball Tournament, were awarded the top seed of this season's event, which will begin Monday at four different sites.
At Tuesday afternoon's seeding meeting at Heavener High School, this year's host school, the Bulldogs got the top seed, followed by Poteau â€” last year's champion â€” and Pocola. All three will receive opening-round byes.
The last time the Poteau Pirates were home at Town Creek Park, they posted a pair of wins over Wister and Checotah. They returned to their friendly confines Monday night, but the outcome wasn't the same as they lost 4-3 to the Sallisaw Black Diamonds.
It was a case of one team getting hits, the Red Oak Lady Eagles, and the other team, the Poteau Lady Pirates, not when they met Monday afternoon.
The Lady Eagles outhit the Lady Pirates 20 to 5 en route to a 12-1 victory to hand Poteau its first loss this season.
OKARCHE â€” The Whitesboro Bulldogs baseball team lost identical 10-5 contests to the Anadarko Riverside Braves and the Okarche Warriors on Friday in the final day of the Union City Festival.
RED OAK â€” The Leflore Savages and the Heavener Wolves came up on the short end of their games Friday in the Red Oak Festival.
The Savages lost 14-6 to Tushka, while the Wolves suffered their first loss of the season as they lost a slugfest contest 18-16 to Washington.
I hope you all enjoyed your spring break. I got to spend mine by working on both Saturday's 2014 Spring Sports Guide and our Progress special sections that will come out this upcoming Saturday.
I hope you all will like both special sections, especially the Guide â€” since I'm a little bit biased when it comes to sports, you know.
It is a tournament week for both baseball and softball. The Cameron and Panama teams will be in the Crowder Tournament, while Spiro's boys will be in the Bixby Tournament.
