Poteau senior boys hope third time is the charm against Stilwell

February 14, 2013

The good news is the Poteau High School basketball teams were awarded being hosts for Friday night’s Class 4A District Tournament at Sherman Floyd Fieldhouse.
The bad news is the Pirates will have to meet the Stilwell Indians, who have beaten them twice — 43-37 on Dec. 17 in Stilwell and 74-47 on Feb. 1 at Sherman Floyd Fieldhouse.
If the third time is to be the charm when the Pirates play the Indians at 8 p.m. Friday after the girls contest at 6:30 p.m., three key things will need to happen — at least in one senior’s opinion.

Buggy drawing at Wister; proposed wildlife changes

February 14, 2013

The Wister athletes are giving away a Massimo gas powered buggy along with many other prizes including several guns on Saturday. A $20 ticket will get you a chili dinner for you and your family, and a chance to win the many prizes.
The last ticket drawn will win the buggy, and they give away something every 25 or 50 tickets. It is a good time with good people for a good cause.
If you haven’t got your ticket yet, go see a Wister athlete or head down to Wister Food and pick one up. However, you better hurry because they are going fast.
Have a great week!

Poteau teams split with Heavener on Senior Night

February 14, 2013

The Poteau Lady Pirates celebrated Senior Night on Tuesday at Sherman Floyd Fieldhouse, and sent their three seniors — Shelby Standridge, Brenna Vise and Colleen Peterson — out in style. For the third time this season, the Lady Pirates dominated the Heavener Lady Wolves in posting a 65-49 victory.
However, the visiting Wolves spoiled Senior Night for the Pirates, who beat them 44-43 on a last-second, coast-to-coast drive for a layup by Jarrett Lowrimore on Jan. 11 in Heavener. The Wolves avenged that loss with a 59-46 win over the Pirates.
