Poteau wrestlers lose to Sallisaw, Wagoner in Class 4A District Duals

January 18, 2013

Jack Hornbuckle, Poteau's wrestling coach, knew his team was going to have its hands full facing the Sallisaw Black Diamonds and the Wagoner Bulldogs in the Class 4A District Duals, which took place Thursday night at Sherman Floyd Fieldhouse. Unfortunately for the Pirates, Hornbuckle's concern came to pass.
The Pirates lost 42-36 to the Black Diamonds and 54-23 to the Bulldogs to end up 0-3 in this year's district duals, after losing to Fort Gibson 44-33 last month.

Panama softball pitcher signs letter to play for NOC-Enid

January 18, 2013

PANAMA — In 1776, people like Thomas Jefferson were among those who have always been thought of as being the founding fathers of our country because of the work he did in helping to create our nation's Declaration of Independence.
About 237 years later, Northern Oklahoma College-Enid, formerly known as Phillips University, will begin a softball program in the spring semester of 2014. So, Jamie Roberts, NOC-Enid's coach, is recruiting players to be her founding fathers, or mothers, if you will, for her new program. One of those players is from right here in LeFlore County.

Thunder looking poised to make another NBA Finals run; OKC knocks off Denver on Wednesday night

January 18, 2013

OKLAHOMA CITY — At the end of the 2011-12 National Basketball Association season, I imagined that the Oklahoma City Thunder would come back this year and use the experience gained throughout the playoffs — especially in the NBA Finals — to make another serious run for the title. If the regular season is any indication of how this team is going to fare in the playoffs, this could be the year that OKC brings home its first-ever NBA title since the franchise moved from Seattle. As the team approaches the midpoint of the season, the Thunder currently has the best record in the NBA (31-8).

The Great Black Angus Bull Jump

January 18, 2013

You may not know this about me, but I used to be LeFlore County’s best stunt man in the late 1970s. I got a phone call from my old event coordinator and team manager, Jeff “Jedi” Dennis. He wanted to promote one last big jump for me.
I was all set to get out the ol’ 1984 Kawasaki 125, grow back those killer pork-chop sidebars and jump the bull at the Black Angus Motel with all the proceeds raised going to local charities. I loved it.
So, I got to the motel to get some measurements for the ramp builders, Ed Sockey and Dr. Rodney Ford. To my surprise, the bull is gone! Holy cow?

Poteau teams split home games with Muldrow

January 17, 2013

Tuesday night at Sherman Floyd Fieldhouse, fans got to witness strong fourth-quarter rallies for the winning teams. One of those rallies came from the homestanding Poteau Pirates, who came from behind to down the Muldrow Bulldogs 45-42.
The other fourth-quarter rally was produced by the visiting Muldrow Lady Bulldogs, who came back from a nine-point halftime deficit to down the Lady Pirates 48-47.
Correction
In Tuesday’s edition, two Poteau girls had their point total against Heavener listed incorrectly. Montana Roll scored 16 points and Kaitlan Standridge scored 15 points.
