Carl Albert State College Vikings Mairega Clark and Emmanuel Audu both signed letters of intent to continue their basketball careers during Wednesday morning's signing ceremony at CASC.
Clark, a 6-5 sophomore from Hollis, N.Y., signed an NCAA Division I letter of intent with the University of Texas at Arlington.
Audu, a 6-7 red-shirt freshman post player from Lagos, Nigeria, signed a NCAA Division II letter of intent with the University of Southern Indiana in Evansville.
At 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, the Poteau Pirates found out their football playoff journey had taken a change. Due to the Oologah Mustangs playing with some ineligible players during their District 4A-3 season, the Mustangs, who originally won the district title, suffered a couple of losses, thus dropping them to the runner-up spot. Therefore, instead of the Pirates heading to face the Wagoner Bulldogs on Friday night, they will head to Oologah.
The change doesnâ€™t seem to have bothered the Pirates.
