October 5, 2011

On Monday, the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association rewarded the Poteau Lady Pirates softball team a Class 4A Regional Tournament, which starts this afternoon. That means the Lady Pirates could celebrate a trip to state Thursday afternoon on their home field. That excited the four senior players.
“I was really excited because we always have to go off far away,” senior right fielder Meagan Ryburn said. “It's always harder to play somewhere else. Playing here, we'll get our real fans, and we'll have more people here to support us.”

Wister seniors glad another trip to state is forthcoming

October 5, 2011

WISTER — The streak of trips to the state tournament is now at four for the Wister Wildcats baseball team. But it almost didn't happen.
In last week's Class A Regional Tournament in Wister, the Wildcats were shocked in their opener by county rival Cameron — which had lost all the previous games to Wister — to drop into the loser's bracket of the regional. Wister had to win twice on the final day, outlasting Wright City and then avenging the loss to Cameron by beating the Yellowjackets in the consolation championship game, to earn another trip to state.
