The news was not as good for the Golden Tigers, who lost to the Marlow Outlaws 63-60 in overtime in the consolation finals.
The Wister Wildcats and the Howe Lady Lions were each awarded the top seed at the 2013 LeFlore County Junior High Tournament, and they proved Saturday night at Carl Albert State College's Mick Thompson Fieldhouse why they were deserving of their seeding.
