Pirates need to win out by maximum margins to ensure 4A playoff berth

October 23, 2012

Just after the Poteau Pirates had perhaps their best football game of the year against the Muldrow Bulldogs Thursday night at Costner Stadium, a bit of bad news came across the internet that might throw a major glitch into their playoff run. Broken Bow defeated the Sallisaw Black Diamonds by the score of 35-28. That means that if the Pirates even win out, more than likely the final two playoff berths from District 4A-4 will be decided by district points, which are determined by how many points a team wins or loses by each week during district play.

October 22, 2012

OKLAHOMA CITY — The 20th Oklahoma Classics were contested Friday night at Remington Park. The full slate of Oklahoma-bred stakes races did not disappoint with a mix of favorites and stars winning along with a few longshots.
Fifth Date, an 8-year-old gelding who primarily has competed in sprint races his entire career, scored the top race of the evening in the $155,500 Chickasaw Nation Oklahoma Classics Cup, powered by TVG.

After being outplayed, and never ahead, in Saturday afternoon's homecoming football game for the Tulsa Golden Hurricane against the Rice Owls, it took only one play to reverse all that.

CASC Lady Vikings add top-shelf basketball talent; Former Heavener Lady Wolf among new fold of hoopsters

October 20, 2012

Jeff Tadtman, Carl Albert State College women's basketball coach, would like to announce the remainder of his 2012-13 signing class.
Skylar Cooper is a 5-8 freshman shooting guard/small forward from Heavener.
Her ability to make 3-point baskets and her leadership skills will both be big for the Lady Vikings this upcoming season.
“Skylar is a local girl from Heavener who came home, and I am excited to have her,” Tadtman said. “She is probably one of our best 3-point threats. Also, she has good leadership skills. Skylar wants to be good. With her hard work, she should succeed.”
