LeFlore County will have at least one basketball All-Stater this season. Talihina's Landry James was named to the Small East team for the 2012 Oklahoma Girls Basketball Coaches Association All-State Games, which will be June 2 at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.
â€śI couldn't be happier for her,â€ť Talihina Girls Coach Jeff Oliver said. â€śI thought one of the three (James, Krissy Houston and Chelsea Baggs) had a shot. At the tryouts, Landry just shined. I'm thrilled to death for her.â€ť

I hope everyone enjoyed Spring Break, because now that it's over it means pretty much non-stop baseball and slow-pitch softball from here out.
This week is the Wister Tournament (its bracket will be in Thursday's edition) is this weekend. The Crowder Tournament for Cameron and Panama will begin Wednesday.
This week for softball will be the Red Oak Tournament, which will have Poteau, Cameron, Howe and Panama representing LeFlore County, Heavener's girls will be at the Gore Tournament and Talihina's girls will be in the Hartshorne Festival.
The Poteau Lady Pirates softball team began the post-Spring Break portion of their season in fine fashion Monday afternoon as they run ruled the Pocola Lady Indians 9-0.
Just as the sunshine at the end of last week's Spring Break was much welcomed, so, too, was a Poteau Pirate baseball team victory in the final game of the 2012 Poteau Wood Bat Tournament.
The Pirates defeated the Sallisaw-Central Tigers 11-5 Saturday afternoon at Town Creek Park in the final game of this year's event.
CAMERON â€” The two LeFlore County baseball teams, the Cameron Yellowjackets and the Panama Razorbacks, who were at this site of the 2012 Poteau Wood Bat Festival both split their two games in which they played.
The â€™Jackets defeated Moss 5-1 Friday afternoon, but lost by the same score Saturday afternoon to Fort Smith (Ark.) Northside.
Both of the Hogs' games were Friday. They run ruled Haileyville 15-0, but then were run ruled themselves 12-2 by Sallisaw-Central.
SPIRO â€” Spring Break's rain didn't totally wash out the 2012 Class 3A Preview this past weekend. One game got played, and the host Spiro Bulldogs got themselves a win.
The â€™Dogs jumped out to an early lead and rode the advantage to a 10-2 victory over the Haskell Haymakers Saturday afternoon.
