STILWELL â€” Poteau wrestler Tyler Tustin won the 138-pound title at last weekendâ€™s Maverick Conference Tournament. Tustin, who got a first-round bye, beat Wagonerâ€™s Bryan Drake by a 14-0 major decision in the semfinals and defeated Sallisawâ€™s Gabe Taylor 3-1 in the finals.
All total, seven Pirates medaled. Derek Francis (170 pounds) came in second after losing in the finals to Sallisawâ€™s Cale Wilson.
Devin Anderson (120 pounds) and Daylon Brewton (heavyweight) were third. Kyle Kingrey (160 pounds), Khy Mote (182) and Gabe Sanchez (195) all placed fourth.
KINTA â€” The Bokoshe High School basketball teams split their Monday night road games against Kinta.
The Lady Tigers rallied from an early deficit to down the Lady Eagles 55-38, but the Eagles flew past the Tigers 75-22.
I hope you all had as much fun as I did last week at the 81st LeFlore County Tournament. I knew this could have its share of upsets, good games and some history was made â€” all of which happened.
For the second straight year, an 11th-seeded team upset a sixth-seed team when the Pocola girls knocked off Bokoshe.
