Poteau golfer Cody Shore was not able to repeat as Class 4A state champion last month, but he did get the top possible honor.
Shore, who was ninth at last month's Class 4A State Tournament, was the highest senior to finish from the East to automatically qualify for the 2015 Oklahoma Coaches Association All-State Golf Tournament in late July.
Shore is one of four LeFlore County athletes as well as a Red Oak Lady Eagle to make All-State teams â€” all doing so in basketball.

Sam Stacy, Tyler Atkinson, Cody Pugh and Kevin Stiles came in third as they carded a 62.
Two local softball players, and maybe a third, will get one more high school game under their belts before hanging up the cleats.
Heavenerâ€™s Makayla Cheek and Pocolaâ€™s Madison Hudkins will be in the Oklahoma Slow-Pitch Softball Coaches Associationâ€™s All-State Games Saturday at the Oklahoma Christian University of Science and Arts in Edmond.
Cheek will play for the East team in the Large School All-State Game at 11 a.m. Saturday, while Hudkins will be on the East team in the Middle School Game at 3 p.m.
Two LeFlore County basketball graduates, Arkomaâ€™s Tiera Brumfield and Panamaâ€™s Hannah Goines, will get one more high school game in before going to college.
Brumfield and Goines will be in the Indian All-State Girls Basketball Game at 6 p.m. Saturday at Oklahoma Wesleyan University in Bartlesville.
After being rained out thanks to remnants of Tropical Depression Bill, the 2015 Red Oak Summer Slam, that was to have started Wednesday, will begin Monday.
However, the original schedule is being changed, and it was not available at press time. Once itâ€™s made available to The Poteau Daily News, it will be put up on our websiteâ€™s sports page.
Tuesdayâ€™s schedule will appear in Tuesdayâ€™s edition, with Wednesdayâ€™s bracket action teams and match-ups to set up for crowning the tournamentâ€™s champion not being determined until after all action on the first two days are completed.
It feels like May all over again. For the second straight day, the first day of action in the Red Oak Summer Slam softball tournament was rained out at all three sites â€” Carl Albert State College, both fields in Red Oak and Wilburton â€” for today after being so on the eventâ€™s originally-scheduled starting day on Wednesday.
As of press time, it was uncertain what was going to be done, or if the entire event was just going to be a wash.
