The OSSAA handed down two big rules. No. 1 — no games can take place on Wednesdays. No. 2 — no games can begin earlier than 4 p.m. and cannot start after 9 p.m.

County Tournament Week is always a special time; district assignments announced

September 11, 2012

I'm now in my third year to be a part of the LeFlore County Fast-Pitch Softball Tournament. My first two years were very enjoyable, and I'm looking forward to a third.
If the seeding holds true, it will be a Poteau-Panama final. If that happens, it will be the first time they have met since their Aug. 28 contest at Poteau in which the Lady Pirates prevailed 1-0 in 14 innings in a game which lasted nearly 3.5 hours.
However, another team coming in hot is the Talihina Lady Golden Tigers, fresh off winning last weekend's Kiowa Tournament.
