What a 2014 LeFlore County Baseball Tournament it was. It went the entire distance â€” needing Saturday afternoon's if-game to decide the champion, which was won by Spiro over Poteau.
We also had a triple play turned during the week, as Heavener turned one in Thursday's winner's-bracket semifinal against Spiro, but the Bulldogs still prevailed.
Most of the games were very competitive and rather entertaining with some extra-inning games thrown in.
The Carl Albert State College baseball team went toe to toe with the 2013 Division II national junior-college champions, the Murray State College Aggies, this past weekend. Each two-game series was a split.
The Vikings beat the Aggies 4-1 in Saturday afternoon's opener at Ival Goodman Field before losing the nightcap 4-0.
On Friday at the MSC Baseball Field in Tishomingo, it was the same. Carl Albert took the opener 1-0 before losing the nightcap 9-0.
The Vikings will play Independence, Kan., beginning at 2 this afternoon at Tulsa Metro Christian High School.
MIDWEST CITY â€” The Western Oklahoma State College Lady Pioneers, featuting former Poteau Lady Pirate Gabba Wilson, swept a pair of games from the Carl Albert State College Lady Vikings on Saturday afternoon at Rose State College. The Lady Pioneers took the opener 11-2, then doubled the Lady Vikings 8-4 in the nightcap.
Sunday's doubleheader got rained out, but it will be rescheduled at a later date since it is a conference twinbill.
