TISHOMINGO â€” It was a not a good day for the Carl Albert State College baseball team Thursday afternoon as it lost a doubleheader to the Murray State College Aggies at the MSC Baseball Field. The host Aggies took a pair of run-rule games 15-5 and 14-3 â€” both of which ended after five innings.
The same two teams will go at it at 1 p.m. this afternoon in a doubleheader at Ival Goodman Field.
MIAMI, Okla. â€” The Carl Albert State College Lady Vikings softball team dropped a pair of games Thursday afternoon to the Northeastern Oklahoma A&M Lady Norse by scores of 2-0 and 5-1.
The Lady Vikings were to have played a doubleheader today (Saturday) against Rose State College in Midwest City, then play a twinbill Sunday afternoon in Altus against Western Oklahoma State College, but both set of games were rained out. Both are trying to be rescheduled, but have not been done so at this time.
Earlier this season, the Carl Albert State College Vikings baseball team went to its archrival, Eastern Oklahoma State College, in Wilburton, and left town with a victory.
Tuesday afternoon at Ival Goodman Field, the Mountaineers returned the favor by run ruling the Vikings 16-5 in seven innings of a scheduled nine-inning contest.
After Carl Albert played Murray State in a road doubleheader Thursday afternoon at the MSC Baseball Field in Tishomingo, the Vikings will welcome the Aggies for a twinbill beginning at 1 p.m. Saturday at Ival Goodman Field.

You might say I had a couple of friends who were â€śThunderstruckâ€ť a few weeks ago. Charles â€śDonkâ€ť Perry and his wife, Sharon, jumped on â€śThe Blake Express Planeâ€ť and flew to Oklahoma City to see the Oklahoma City Thunder play the Houston Rockets at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
Now, this was the first time the Perrys had ever flown. The Blakes' plane is a small, twin-engine plane. â€śDonkâ€ť said that he never has seen so many ponds and oil wells. He was a little nervous in the plane, but Sharon enjoyed the flight.
