The Poteau Pirates had a clutch, or more like a Klutts performance â€” as in Ben Klutts, Poteauâ€™s sophomore shortstop and pitcher â€” en route to winning the 2015 LeFlore County Baseball Tournament on Saturday night at Howeâ€™s Lions Field.
The 2015 LeFlore County Slow-Pitch Softball Tournament will begin at 2 p.m. Thursday at the Poteau Area Recreational Complex. A new bracket will appear in Thursday's physical edition and e-edition as well as on this website's sports page by no later than Thursday morning.
One LeFlore County Tournament down, as the baseball version ended Saturday night at Howeâ€™s Lions Field with the Poteau Pirates claiming county supremecy.
Poteau 10, Wister 0
Wister 12, Spiro 8
A few LeFlore County baseball and softball teams got good news from the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association on Friday. They were named district tournament hosts for the upcoming start to postseason play.
The Poteau Lady Pirates should find out late next week or early the following week what their Class 6A Regional Tournament fate will be.
Here's the complete list:
Class A Baseball District Tournament Assignments
Arkoma and Cameron at Gans
Crowder and Gore at Keota
Class B Baseball District Tournament Assignments
Kinta and McCurtain at Leflore
Poteau 11, Wister 10
Spiro 10, Cameron 0
Spiro 6, Heavener 2
Spiro vs. Wister, 3 p.m.
Poteau vs. Spiro-Wister winner, 5 p.m.
The Heavener Lady Wolves won last springâ€™s LeFlore County Slow-Pitch Softball Tournament, and if the seeding holds true they will do so this spring as well.
The Lady Wolves were given the top seed in next weekâ€™s county tournament, which will begin Monday at the Poteau Area Recreational Complex.
Last seasonâ€™s county runners-up, the Pocola Lady Indians, got the second seed, while the Wister Lady Wildcats got the third seed. All three top seeds will get a bye into the winnerâ€™s-bracket quarterfinals on Monday.
For the first time this week, Mother Nature was a winner during the 2015 LeFlore County Baseball Tournament.
After Heavener eliminated Panama 5-2 in Thursday's loser's-bracket quarterfinal at Howe's Lions Field, rain washed out the final two games of the night â€” the other loser's-bracket quarterfinal game between Cameron and Spiro and the winner's-bracket final between Poteau and Wister.
The Cameron-Spiro game will be at 3 p.m. Friday, with the winner meeting Heavener at 5 p.m. Poteau and Wister will play at 7 p.m.
