High School Softball Roundup

September 8, 2012

ARKOMA — Due to the rainstorm which moved into LeFlore County on Friday, the Wister-Arkoma Green Valley Conference doubleheader was rained out.
The Lady Wildcats had a 4-1 lead when the Lady Mustangs were coming to bat in the bottom of the second inning when the rainstorm stopped the game. Since the game had not gone the necessary innings to be a complete game, it was considered a rainout. No make-up date has been set for the conference twinbill.
Whitesboro 6, Smithville 0: Friday in Whitesboro, the Lady Bulldogs (4-9) won back-to-back games in as many days.
