The LeFlore County Soccer Association will have a general meeting and mandatory coaches meeting at 5:30 p.m. May 30 at the Department of Human Services meeting room in Poteau.
The first week of this springâ€™s football practice has been a good one, at least in the mind of first-year coach Greg Werner.
â€śThings are going very well,â€ť he said. â€śWe have a lot more kids out and participating. Weâ€™re definitely getting a head start on where weâ€™re at compared at this time last year. Weâ€™re feeling good about things.â€ť
Next week will end the spring practices, which themselves will culminate with the spring game at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Costner Stadium.
Several Poteau Pirates baseball team members were honored at Thursday nightâ€™s banquet, which took place at The Community State Bank Banquet Room.
Carl Albert State College womenâ€™s basketball coach Jeff Tadtman has signed four new players to his team â€” Talihinaâ€™s Tara Hawkins, Eufaulaâ€™s Alyssa Banks, Tulsa Websterâ€™s Chasity Asberry and Shelby Brown of Lincoln Christian School in Tulsa.
Since Poteau High School sophomore Skylar Abbott has been on the tennis court for several years, it only seemed natural that he try to do so as an Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association athlete.
For the last two years, Abbott has been fortunate enough to represent the Pirates on the tennis court.
â€śIâ€™ve been playing since I was about 9,â€ť Abbott said. â€śI figured I should be able to play for my school, and give my school a little more credit in another sport than it already has.â€ť
