August 14, 2013

POCOLA — The Pocola Lady Indians softball team made sure its first-ever Pocola Invitational got off to the right start.
The Lady Indians doubled up the Cameron Lady Yellowjackets 4-2 in the third of four opening-round games on Monday.
In other opening-round contests, the Wister Lady Wildcats beat the Keota Lady Lions 9-4, McCurtain used a late rally to handle Spiro 10-4 in a battle of Lady Bulldogs. The Stigler Lady Panthers blanked the Talihina Lady Golden Tigers 9-0.
However, there was one winner on Tuesday — Mother Nature.

Tuesday's rain washes out softball, baseball openers

August 14, 2013

While the rain showers which fell on LeFlore County were welcomed, they weren't by local high school fast-pitch softball and baseball teams.
Three softball and four baseball teams saw their season-openers rained out Tuesday afternoon.
Softball games rained out were Poteau at Pryor and Heavener and Smithville at Whitesboro, and none of them have been rescheduled at this time.
On the baseball diamond, games which fell victim to Tuesday's rain were Cameron at Wister, Panola at Leflore and Howe at McCurtain, with none of the games rescheduled.

Diamond dolls, guys back in action for fall season — UPDATED SCHEDULE

August 13, 2013

While summer will not end until next month, for all intents and purposes it really has — at least for me.
The 2013 fall high school fast-pitch softball season and baseball season will get under way this week.
So, officially my summer ended on Monday when I went up to cover the opening day of the Pocola Invitational — as well as photograph two high school football teams' opening day of practice.
All I can say is, “Let the games begin.”
Questionnaires, Team Photographs Needed
