The good news was there was one softball team which made state for the second straight season â€” the Panama Lady Razorbacks. There was another softball team, the Poteau Lady Pirates, which made it for the second straight year to the Class 4A Regional Tournament championship round. The Wister Wildcats baseball team made state for the sixth straight season â€” dating back to the May 2010 spring season.
However, the bad news was the Lady â€™Backs and the â€™Cats both lost in the state quarterfinals Thursday afternoon, and the Lady Pirates lost in the regional finals.
