Jeff Rogers and Perry Reed of McClain Surveying and Josh Munoz and Dana Scott of First National Bank were the winning foursome in Mondayâ€™s Poteau Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament that took place at Wolf Ridge Country Club.
It looked like the only Arkoma Lady Mustang graduating senior who was going to play hoops at the next level was Tiera Brumfield, who signed with Eastern Oklahoma State College earlier this year. However, that all changed Monday morning.
Arkoma guard Shaylea Whisenhunt signed a letter of intent with Murray State College, located in Tishomingo, in a signing ceremony inside the Arkoma Gym.

Poteau golfer Cody Shore was not able to repeat as Class 4A state champion last month, but he did get the top possible honor.
Shore, who was ninth at last month's Class 4A State Tournament, was the highest senior to finish from the East to automatically qualify for the 2015 Oklahoma Coaches Association All-State Golf Tournament in late July.
