SPIRO — It’s quite an accomplishment when a high school athlete makes the state tournament, even better when it happens more than once. That’s the case for Spiro senior pitcher Kelby Fowler.
“It was great,” said Fowler about Saturday afternoon’s 5-4 win over Stigler to win the Class 3A Regional Tournament and make state. “Making it the first time [last year] was kind of overwhelming. This year, it’s kind of the same thing. It’s a good feeling to get to go back to back to state. I’m beyond excited. I’m loving it.”
