At Wednesday nightâ€™s seeding meeting at Western Sizzlinâ€™, Spiro was the unanimous selection to be the top seed of the 2015 LeFlore County Fast-Pitch Softball Tournament, with Pocola getting the second seed. Seeds three through 13 went to Wister, Heavener, Poteau, Howe, Cameron, Whitesboro, Panama, Leflore, Talihina, Arkoma and Bokoshe, respectively.
The county tournament will begin Monday at the Poteau Area Recreational Area.
Five LeFlore County football schools will have their final preseason scrimmages tonight.
Panama will visit Heavener at 6:30 p.m.; Spiro will join Hugo and Okmulgee at Pocola at 6 p.m. and Arkoma will join Canadian at Webbers Falls at 6 p.m.
The Talihina Golden Tigers scored six touchdowns in their first 29 plays in last Thursday nightâ€™s scrimmage at Valliant, and 13 TDs overall. However, tonight will be a tougher test when they scrimmage against the Hartshorne Miners and the Morris Eagles at 6:30 tonight in Hartshorne.
The good news for the Bokoshe Tigers so far this preseason is that they havenâ€™t scrimmaged anybody yet.
That will all change tonight when the Tigers get their one and only scrimmage of the preseason when they travel to meet the Keota Lions and the Depew Hornets at 6 p.m. in Keota.
The Poteau Pirates will have one last chance to take care of the chinks in the armor before meeting the Durant Lions in the Sept. 4 season-opener. That chance will come at 5 p.m. Thursday in a four-way scrimmage at the home of the Class 4A defending champion Wagoner Bulldogs. The Hilldale Hornets and the Tahlequah Tigers will also be in the scrimmage.
It took until Monday night to finish the 20th annual Carl Albert State College Fall Classic, but the Wister Wildcats won't mind â€” especially since they won it.
Sophomore Cash Balentine hit a walk-off, two-run home run in the eighth inning to lift the â€™Cats to a 4-2 victory over the Red Oak Eagles in Monday night's finals in Red Oak.
