NORMAN â€” So much for a quarterback controversy at the University of Oklahoma. Junior Blake Bell took over in the fourth quarter last week against West Virginia as red-shirt freshman Trevor Knight was struggling and got the nod to make his first-ever start against Tulsa in Saturday's game at Owen Field. Bell threw for a record 413 yards and four touchdowns as the Sooners rolled to a 51-20 victory over the Golden Hurricanes.
WISTER â€” Rattan pitcher Jordan Jones proved to be too much to handle for the Wister Wildcats on Saturday afternoon as he struck out nine batters in a complete-game 5-0 victory.

It's finally here â€” the 2013 LeFlore County Fast-Pitch Softball Tournament, which is taking place this year in Panama.
For the first time in four years (three of those since I've been here), the field for the title would appear to be wide open.
Poteau is the favorite, but may not have the cakewalk it has had in dominating the field for the last four years â€” and yes, that's a credit to the six seniors who graduated last spring, who never lost a fast-pitch county tournament game in their four years.
KIOWA â€” The Talihina Lady Golden Tigers softball team finished in third place at the Kiowa Tournament on Saturday.
The Lady Golden Tigers beat Wilburton 6-3 and Hartshorne â€” which opened the tournament by beating Talihina 5-4 Thursday afternoon â€” by a score of 8-1.
However, the Lady Golden Tigers fell to the Buffalo Valley Lady Buffaloes 5-0 in the loser's-bracket final to end up third.
