Poteau boys golf team third at Tahlequah Invitational; Pirate golfer among Top 10 medalists

March 16, 2012

TAHLEQUAH — The Poteau Pirates golf team started the season very strong as they were third among Class 5A and 6A golf teams Wednesday afternoon at the Tahlequah Invitational.
The Pirates were third with a score of 343, finishing behind champion Tulsa Bishop Kelley (326) and Tahlequah (340).
But the good news was the two teams ahead of the Pirates were Class 5A teams.
“It was a great start for us,” Poteau Boys Coach Mike Thomas said. “We beat all the Class 4A golf teams in the field.”
One Pirate was among the Top 10 medalists as freshman Cody Shore was ninth with an 83.

I love you, man!

A few years ago, Jeff “Jedi” Dennis and Ed Sockey were working somewhere in Tennessee. They would call me every other day just to check in, and see how I was and what was happening back in good ol' Poteau. I could tell they were homesick — I knew they were going to be. I get all beside myself when I get out of LeFlore County!

Hilldale Hornets rally past Poteau Pirates; Late questionable calls hurt Pirates' comeback bid

March 15, 2012

In the Class 4A District Basketball Tournament last month at Sherman Floyd Fieldhouse, the Hilldale Hornets stung the Poteau Pirates. The visitors from Muskogee did the same thing Tuesday at Town Creek Park.
Thanks to a five-run fifth inning and a two-run sixth inning, the Hornets rallied from a 7-1 deficit to down the Pirates 8-7.
Trailing 7-1 after four innings, a two-RBI single by Jarrad Poteete, an RBI single by Dalton Cunningham and a Poteau error produced five runs to cut the Poteau lead to 7-6.

It took eight innings, but the Poteau Lady Pirates bounced back from Monday's rough pair of losses to Muskogee and Broken Arrow.

Arkoma 5, Cameron 2: In Arkoma, the Lady Mustangs avenged last week's loss to the Lady Yellowjackets, and got their first win of the season — and handed Cameron its first loss of the spring.
Arkoma jumped out to a 3-0 lead after an inning and never lost the advantage.
