The Wister Lady Wildcats softball team ended up being the lone county representatives at state this fall diamond season. It was good they got there, but the state quarterfinal loss to Dale stung. However, they were there, and only seven other teams can say they were part of the 2014 Class 2A Fast-Pitch State Softball Tournament. Congratulations on a fine season, Lady â€™Cats, and maybe you can make it a trifecta next spring and return to the Class 3A State Tournament.
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. â€” The Arkansas Razorbacks can only think what might have been in Saturdayâ€™s home game with the Alabama Crimson Tide at Frank Broyles Field at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
The Razorbacks played one of their best Southeastern Conference games in a while, and frankly outplayed the Crimson Tide in all aspects of the game â€” except the most important one, the scoreboard, as the Tide left town 14-13 victors.
The Poteau Youth Wrestling Club's own tournament will be Nov. 8 at Sherman Floyd Fieldhouse.
