OKTAHA â€” The Heavener Lady Wolves went 2-1 on the first day of the Oktaha Tournament, beating Vian 5-1 and Warner 8-0 before losing to the host Lady Tigers by a score of 9-1.
The Lady Wolves (12-3), who played in a home three-way on Friday with Keys (Park Hill) and Coalgate, will play Sallisaw at 11 a.m. and Locust Grove at 12:30 p.m. today in the Oktaha Tournament. How they do in these two games will determine who their third game will be against and for what place.
TAHLEQUAH â€” In the first cross country meet in Heavener High School history, the Wolves and Lady Wolves were both eighth in the Tahlequah Early Tiger Invitational Thursday afternoon.
In the boys' division, the Wolves were eighth with 221 points. Tulsa Union won the team title with 35 points, followed by host Tahlequah (37 points), Lincoln Christian (58), Jay (139), Claremore (162), Muskogee (172) and Sallisaw (217).
In 2012 and 2013, when the Heavener Wolves and the Spiro Bulldogs meet on the gridiron, it will be a District 3A-8 contest.
However, when they meet at 6:30 p.m. tonight at Spiro's McClain Stadium, it will only be the final preseason scrimmage for the upcoming 2011 season â€” which begins next week.
As long as First-Year Panama Razorbacks Football Coach Brandon Ellis keeps seeing his players improve, he'll be a happy camper. He will really be a happy camper if he sees that improvement happen in tonight's scrimmage against Warner at 6 p.m. at George Ollie Stadium.
â€śWe've made our corrections from the mistakes we saw last week,â€ť Ellis said. â€śThe main focus this week is to learn from our mistakes and not see those mistakes this week. I'm anxious to see how well we pick up on that.â€ť
Admission to tonight's scrimmage will be towels for the Hogs to use during this upcoming season.
