Wister Wildcat senior signs baseball letter with CASC

April 28, 2012

WISTER — Last year, Carl Albert State College signed three LeFlore County players. Add one more for next year's roster.
Wister Wildcat senior pitcher/catcher Cody Luman signed a letter of intent last week with the Vikings.
“I just really like the program, and it's been doing pretty good lately,” Luman said. “And, it's close to home. I'm excited about it.”
“He has meant a lot to this program,” Wister Coach John McAlester said. “He's thrown some big ball games for us. He's just one of those kids who is good to just have around.”

Sports Briefs

April 28, 2012

Mountain Gateway Sisterhood of Steel will play Oklahoma City Roller Derby's Lightning Broads at 11 a.m. this morning at SkateReation.
Sisterhood of Steel returns to the rink following last week's 204-98 victory over Tulsa Derby Brigade's Beta Corps in what should be a hard fought battle.
"The Lightning Broads are a far more experienced team and this will be a real test for us, but I believe that with our Jammers and Blockers, on our home floor, and in front of our fans, we could put up another W," SOS Coach Keith Clarke said. "This is definitely going to be an entertaining game."

Poteau Pirate golfers eighth at Monday's Class 4A Preview; Class 4A Regional Tournament Monday at Wolf Ridge

April 28, 2012

OKLAHOMA CITY — The bad news for the Poteau Pirates golf team was for the first time this season they did not place in a tournament.
However, the good news was they had by far their best tournament of the season as they were eighth at the Class 4A Preview, which took place Monday at Lake Hefner North Golf Course. The Pirates had a team score of 307, but were well behind the team champion Heritage Hall (283).

For five Pirate seniors, this marks the stretch drive of their high school soccer careers.
“I really haven't thought about it that way,” forward/midfielder Spencer Hall said. “I guess it's kind of sad, but it's motivating us to try to keep it going for as long as we can.”

Thunder lose 'meaningless' game to Denver Nuggets

April 27, 2012

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma City Thunder had virtually nothing to play for against the Denver Nuggets in their last game (and home game) of the season Wednesday night at Chesapeake Energy Arena. After sitting his starters for the entire fourth quarter Tuesday night against the Sacramento Kings, Oklahoma City Coach Scott Brooks played them in the final quarter against Denver, but it didn’t matter as the Thunder fell to the Nuggets 106-101.
OKC got off to a slow start in the game while Denver got into a groove early, jumping out to a 23-14 lead midway through the first quarter.

A Friday night at Wolf Ridge Golf Course

April 27, 2012

We went to Wolf Ridge Golf Course last Friday night for its famous “Friday Night Steak Dinner.” We sat down with Jose' and Heather Chavez, Brian and Suzanne Free, Keith and Robin Marquez, Alan and Stacey McDaniel and Steve and Regina Peck. You might say it looked like “Date Night.”
We all had a really great dinner, and that's when The Gabe Cunningham Band fired up. Man, he sang everything — Stone Temple Pilots, Lionel Richie, Prince, Alice in Chains and Johnny Cash. We broke out on “Ring of Fire,” and the crowd went nuts — and it was a now a party!
