Two LeFlore County baseball players, Poteauâ€™s Ben Klutts and Wisterâ€™s Scotty Gibson, will get to be a part of history as they will get to play in the first-ever Oklahoma State Games next week at Oklahoma State Universityâ€™s Allie P. Reynolds Stadium in Stillwater. They will be joined by Red Oakâ€™s Lane Grogan and Cody Muncy.
The four local players will be part of the Southeast team that will play three games over two days. The Southeast team will play the Oklahoma City team at 7:15 p.m. Tuesday, then play twice on Wednesday â€” vs. the Tulsa team at 11:30 a.m. and the Southwest team at 7:15 p.m.
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.
EDMOND â€” Two local softball players, Heavener's Makayla Cheek and Pocola's Madison Hudkins, and three local umpires, Dale Lowrimore, Bill Holt and Wendy Kennedy, participated in the 2015 Slow-Pitch Coaches Association All-State Games on Saturday at Oklahoma Christian University of Science and Arts.

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.
Shore is one of four LeFlore County athletes as well as a Red Oak Lady Eagle to make All-State teams â€” all doing so in basketball.
