With the winter chill finally behind us, the time is now to strap on your running shoes and get running.
Area runners and walkers will have a chance to support youth softball.
Sponsored by parents of the ball players, the Run with the Wildcats 5K walk and run will raise money to support the Wister Wildcats this season.
The event will take place on March 17 at 9 a.m. The route starts at the LeFlore County Highway Department Building southwest of Poteau in the Poteau Industrial Complex next to Southern Star Inc.
The LeFlore County Sheriff's Department along with Bokoshe and Spiro Police Department s served a narcotics search warrant Tuesday morning at a residence on Sebo Lane east of Spiro. Two people were arrested in the drug raid after officers recovered 97 grams of methamphetamines, 217 grams of marijuana, 16 packages of K2 and two packages of 7H (version of K2). Also taken from the residence were three sets of digital scales and other illegal drug paraphernalia. Brian Steele, 32, and Kelli Thompson, 31, are both facing drug charges stemming from the drug raid.
SPIRO â€” The Spiro Bulldogs stayed perfect on the young season with a 12-2 five-inning, run-rule victory over the Sallisaw-Central Tigers Monday afternoon.
The â€™Dogs, who trailed 1-0 in the opening inning, scored five runs in the second inning, three in the third inning and four runs in the fourth inning to win going away.
Vian 7, Cameron 3: In Vian, the Wolverines scored three runs in the first inning, once in the third inning and two runs in the fourth inning for a 6-0 lead.
ARKOMA â€” The Arkoma Mustangs played just their second game of the young baseball season Monday afternoon. The Mustangs managaed only two hits, getting thrashed by the McCurtain Bulldogs 15-3.
MUSKOGEE â€” The Poteau Lady Pirates suffered their first two losses of the young slow-pitch softball season on Monday. The host Lady Roughers run ruled the Lady Pirates 16-2, then Poteau lost 10-1 to Broken Arrow.
Heavener 8, McCurtain 6; Red Oak 9, Heavener 2: In McCurtain, the Lady Wolves split their games on Monday.
A five-run third inning helped propel the Lady Wolves to the win over the host Lady Bulldogs.
In the loss to Red Oak, the Lady Wolves could only score single runs in the first and second innings.
WISTER â€” When the Wister Lady Wildcats and the Spiro Lady Bulldogs were scheduled to play Monday afternoon, the match-up was to have been in Spiro.
But due to wet fields, the game was moved to Wister â€” which meant the Lady â€™Cats would end up getting last at-bats. But that didn't keep the Lady Bulldogs from posting a win.
A seventh-inning run broke a 5-all tie to propel the Spiro girls to a 6-5 win over Wister.
