The Poteau Lady Pirate senior basketball players were unable to come away winners on Senior Night against Muldrow on Feb. 7 at Sherman Floyd Fieldhouse.
However, thanks to the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association, they can still win their last game on their home court. The Lady Pirates will entertain the Hilldale Lady Hornets at 6:30 p.m. tonight at Sherman Floyd Fieldhouse for the Class 4A District Tournament. The Pirates and Hornets will follow at 8 p.m.
If the Lady Pirates win tonight, it would make them back-to-back district champions â€” which would please them all.
