Poteau Pirate hurdler looks to leap way to state titles

May 3, 2012

A season ago, Poteau senior hurdler Dakota Clark suffered an ankle injury, which sidelined him for the majority of his junior seasons for both track and soccer.
Now injury free, the Pirate hurdler looks to win state in either or both the 110-meter and 300-meter hurdles at this weekend's Class 4A State Meet — which will be Friday and Saturday at Ardmore's Noble Stadium.

Peterson, Warren, Hoyer and Bond are the four legs of the 3,200-meter relay team, which has won every meet but one — coming in second to Vinita's 3,200 relay at the Hilldale Invitational April 13 in Muskogee.

HEAVENER — For the third straight season, Heavener Wolf long jumper Shaun Bradley finds himself at the biggest meet of the year — the Class 3A State Meet, which will be Friday and Saturday at Ardmore's Noble Stadium.
He hopes the old adage about the third time holds true to form.
“Maybe third time will be the charm,” Bradley said. “My sophomore year, I made it to the state finals. Hopefully, this year, I can come back with the gold.”

More turkeys and baseball ahead for me this week

May 3, 2012

Turkey season is in full swing, and I have got to go hunting two halfdays with no luck whatsoever. Dan Carter, Koby and I have heard a couple of birds, but have not succeeding in calling them in. Dallas Ward joined us on a hunt last weekend, and I hope the next hunt he goes on with me will result in at least getting set up on a gobbler.
Dan and I are going back after those turkeys this weekend, along with my cousin Jason Sampson and Butch Parks — an old high school buddy of mine. Hopefully, we will get a chance to give one of those cagey ol' toms a ride home in the truck.

May 1, 2012

Eventually, chapters in one's life will end. Poteau Lady Pirate senior golfer Addie Guthrie is in her final pages of such a chapter.
Guthrie will conclude her Poteau High School athletic career today and Thursday at the Class 4A State Tournament.
“It's sad,” Guthrie said Tuesday morning before the Lady Pirates left to play a practice round that afternoon to get ready for the 36-hole, two-day state tournament. “When it's over, it's going to be over. I'm looking forward to it. I'm ready, but I'm also sad. It's going to be bittersweet. Hopefully, we can go out with a bang — and get a ring.”
