Poteau netter figured he might as well represent Pirates on tennis court

May 17, 2013

Since Poteau High School sophomore Skylar Abbott has been on the tennis court for several years, it only seemed natural that he try to do so as an Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association athlete.
For the last two years, Abbott has been fortunate enough to represent the Pirates on the tennis court.
“I’ve been playing since I was about 9,” Abbott said. “I figured I should be able to play for my school, and give my school a little more credit in another sport than it already has.”

Grizzlies end Thunder's season with Game 5 win

May 17, 2013

OKLAHOMA CITY — Basketball is a team game. It is not an individual sport. Five players make up a team. I don’t dare blame the OKC Thunder’s early exit from the playoffs on the fact that they lost Russell Westbrook to an injury in the first round against the Houston Rockets. But I will say that with him they stood a much better chance at advancing into the Western Conference Finals and probably even to the NBA Finals. Injuries are a part of every sport, however, and Westbrook just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.

My encounter with little Razorbacks

May 17, 2013

On May 9, my mother, JoAnn Mattox, and I went to my daughter, Joni's, senior program at Union Christian Academy in Fort Smith, Ark.
Afterward, I took my mom to Lin's Garden Chinese Restaurant for her Mother's Day lunch. As we're walking in, two ladies run out of the door, saying, “We're leaving. Don't go in there, too many kids!”
I turn and look in the parking lot, and there's a Panama Public Schools bus.

Good ol’ summertime has finally arrived

May 16, 2013

School is officially out, but I am not sure my life is going to slow down much. My boys are both playing summer baseball on two teams, and Koby will play some high school baseball and basketball in the month of June.
Cash is also playing on two summer teams and will be playing in junior high baseball and basketball leagues during June, too.
With all this going on, my boat may not get to see the water much this summer.
Have a great week!
