Panama girl becomes youngest ever to take Oklahoma bear

October 10, 2012

The young hunter that takes the cake this hunting season is Lani Monks, an 11-year-old young lady from Panama. Lani is the daughter of Jeff and Kim Monks. She was hunting with her dad, who has taken her hunting since she was age 4.
Lani took her first deer two years ago, and took two deer last year, from the ground without a ground blind. Anyone who has bow hunted knows how tough that is.

Arkoma seeks second straight win in non-district football road game against Eagle Point Academy

October 10, 2012

If ever there was a team which was needing a win, one such team was the Arkoma Mustangs.
After the Mustangs had lost three straight District C-4 games to be in dire straits of making the playoffs, along came a thrilling 44-36 win over the Midway Chargers last Friday night at Mustang Field on homecoming.
“The kids were really excited,” said Mark Weatherton, Arkoma's coach. “It was a great football game. The crowd was into it. It had been three tough weeks for us. To get a win in the fashion we did, scoring with 36 seconds left, it felt good.”

October 10, 2012

The Panama Razorbacks football team was able to get its first win of the season last Friday night as it posted a 33-30 District 2A-6 road win over the Antlers Bearcats. It was a good win, but still had a lot to be desired in the mind of Brandon Ellis, Panama's second-year coach.

The Poteau Pirates freshmen football team was trying to keep their winning streak intact on a crisp autumn Monday night at Costner Stadium against the Broken Bow Savages.

Spiro handles Eufaula for big road District 3A-8 football victory

October 8, 2012

EUFAULA — Chris Bunch, Spiro's football coach, said that once his Bulldogs got past their District 3A-8 opener against Stigler (a 48-16 win by the Panthers) that the other district games were very winnable for his team. So far, he's 2-for-2.
After winning 17-0 at home over Idabel Sept. 28 at McClain Stadium, the Bulldogs headed west down Oklahoma State Highway 9 to Eufaula, and picked up a 40-14 road victory over the Ironheads to go to 3-3 overall — and, more importantly, improve to 2-1 in District 3A-8.

Friday's game shows Pirates can play with stronger teams, but now, Poteau needs strong finish to season to make postseason play

October 8, 2012

I believe that Fort Gibson could be very underrated team. The Tigers are that good, and they do deserve the love that they are getting from the pollsters. This week, they're ranked seventh in the Class 4A Poll.
Jake Gandara has to be the most impressive back that I have seen in District 4A-4 for a long time.
I guess you could call me a Poteau Pirate pollyanna, but I believe if you look hard enough you can find something good in everything.

Season didn't end quite the way everyone wanted it to on the diamond

October 8, 2012

The good news was there was one softball team which made state for the second straight season — 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 — dating back to the May 2010 spring season.
However, the bad news was the Lady ’Backs and the ’Cats both lost in the state quarterfinals Thursday afternoon, and the Lady Pirates lost in the regional finals.
