Maxcine Warren, 56, of Poteau died Thursday, Oct. 18, 2012, in Tulsa.
Maxcine was born Jan. 19, 1956, in Parkin, Ark., to John Jr. and Cora Lee (Spencer) Smith. She was a teacher, counselor, and LRC/student support tutor/developmental coordinator for Carl Albert State College, Poteau. Maxcine was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Vernell Willis; and niece, Angelina Willis.
TULSA â€” The streak continues for the Poteau High School cross-country teams.
Saturday afternoon at the Class 4A Regional Meet at Oral Roberts University, the Lady Pirates and the Pirates each finished in the top seven in team standings to make the Class 4A State Meet, which will be at 10 a.m. Oct. 27 at Edmond Santa Fe High School.
Just after the Poteau Pirates had perhaps their best football game of the year against the Muldrow Bulldogs Thursday night at Costner Stadium, a bit of bad news came across the internet that might throw a major glitch into their playoff run. Broken Bow defeated the Sallisaw Black Diamonds by the score of 35-28. That means that if the Pirates even win out, more than likely the final two playoff berths from District 4A-4 will be decided by district points, which are determined by how many points a team wins or loses by each week during district play.
SHAWNEE â€” Heavener High School senior cross-country runner Jose Farias ended his prep career at the ultimate meet, the Class 3A State Meet on Saturday morning at Gordon Cooper Vo-Tech Center.
However, the goal Farias desired to get in Saturday's meet did not happen as he was 54th with a time of 19:07.
Farias was hoping for a Top 10 finish, which would have earned him All-State honors, and running below the 18-minute mark.
Two lucky foursomes came away champions at the 2012 San Bois CASA Charity Tournament, which took place on a windy Friday afternoon at Wolf Ridge Golf Course.
Team LaHuerta, comprised of Jose Chavez, Jonathon Burgess, Brian Free and Jason May, won the first flight championship with a 59.
The quartet of Alan and Stacy McDaniel, Gloria Hall and Chad Knight won the second flight championship with a score of 68.
OKLAHOMA CITY â€” The 20th Oklahoma Classics were contested Friday night at Remington Park. The full slate of Oklahoma-bred stakes races did not disappoint with a mix of favorites and stars winning along with a few longshots.
Fifth Date, an 8-year-old gelding who primarily has competed in sprint races his entire career, scored the top race of the evening in the $155,500 Chickasaw Nation Oklahoma Classics Cup, powered by TVG. Easily the biggest win for Fifth Date, it happened just two races after he was claimed for $18,000.
OKLAHOMA CITY â€” The Oklahoma City Thunder played their last preseason home game Sunday night at Chesapeake Energy Arena, defeating the Denver Nuggets 108-101.
The Thunder had as much as a 19-point lead (49-30), but eventually trailed in the fourth quarter before finishing the game strong to capture the victory.
