NORMAN â€” Four local runners not only repeated as state champions, but won state in a faster time than in 2012.
The 440-yard relay team of Kyra Hornbuckle, Braya Warren, Lauryn Trotter and Jada Price won the girls age 13-14 state title in the 2013 Hershey State Meet, which took place June 22. The foursome shaved six seconds off their state-title time of a year ago.
The relay team was still waiting word as of press time if it qualified for the Hershey National Meet, which will be later this summer in Hershey, Pa.
Several youth claimed first-place honors in the 2013 Mark Sullivan â€śMud Duckâ€ť Youth Golf Tournament, which took place Tuesday at Choctaw Country Club.

The Poteau Lady Pirates softball players who were among the Class of 2013 accomplished a lot in their four years donning the red, black and white. For three of them, more honors came their way.
Shelby Standridge, Brenna Vise and Kaylee Kingrey were named to â€śVypeâ€ť magazine's Three Rivers Softball Team. The publication is currently on newsstands throughout LeFlore County this week.
The LeFlore County Bass Club had its last tournament of the 2013 circuit Sunday at Wards Landing on Wister Lake. There were 24 boats of anglers who caught 82 bass that had a cumulative weight of 202.75 pounds. Each fish averaged 2.47 pounds, and 11 limits were caught.
Don't freak out when you read this folks, but I and Bruce Vincent came out on top with 17.2 pounds caught to earn $525, and that included my big bass winner of 5.59 pounds to earn an additional $210.
