It was a Happy Halloween for us

November 7, 2014

We had a great time for Halloween last Friday. James and Angela McKay drove their golf cart over, and it was all dressed up with spider webs. James was “Pinhead” and looked really scary.

Way to Go, Grandma!

Poteau entertains Tulsa Central Braves for Senior Night

November 6, 2014

The Poteau Pirates likely will play for the last time this season at Costner Stadium Friday night when they entertain the Tulsa Central Braves at 7:30 p.m. for Senior Night. Senior Night festivities will take place before the game.
“It’s big,” Poteau coach Greg Werner said. “You always want to have your seniors’ last home game to be a big one. We certainly want to send them off on the right way. They’re a great group of kids. We want it to be a good night. Senior Night always provides a lot of motivation. Hopefully, it will this week.”

District 4A-4 Standings

Spiro entertains Valliant in battle of Bulldogs, seeks extending winning streak to three games

November 6, 2014

Last year, the Spiro Bulldogs opened the season 9-0 and only needed to beat Checotah to win the District 3A-8 title. Instead, they lost to the Wildcats and dropped all the way down to third place. Then, the ’Dogs fell to Hilldale in the Class 3A playoff opener to end their season.
Spiro (6-2 overall, 3-2 in district play) does not want that to happen this season. In fact, Spiro can enter the postseason on a three-game winning streak if it takes care of Valliant (0-9, 0-5) at 7 p.m. Friday at McClain Stadium to celebrate Senior Night.

District 3A-8 Standings

Sports Briefs

November 6, 2014

The 2014-15 Poteau Buccaneer Basketball League needs three coaches — one for a first-second grade coed team, one for a third-fourth grade boys team and one for a boys fifth-sixth grade team.
If these coaching voids are not filled, those respective divisions will not have a draft, and thus a season for those players who have signed up to play will not be able to play.

Senior Night bringing bittersweet thoughts to Poteau lineman

November 6, 2014

The Poteau Pirates football team will celebrate Senior Night prior to Friday’s 7:30 p.m. District 4A-4 and regular-season finale against Tulsa Central at Costner Stadium. It’s bringing bittersweet thoughts to one of those seniors who will be honored before the game.
“I’m pretty emotional about it knowing that [after Friday night’s game] I’ll never get to play another down on this field again,” senior lineman Hank Galetka said. “It kind of sucks. We’re all kind of upset about it. We wish we had a longer season to get to play on it.”

Heavener Wolves look to end season on high note on Senior Night against Idabel

November 6, 2014

The 2014 football season for the Heavener Wolves has not gone as it had hoped for first-year coach Sam Hembree. However, a lot of frustration can be put to rest Friday night when the Wolves (2-9 overall, 1-4 in District 3A-8) entertain the Idabel Warriors (7-2, 3-2) at 7 p.m. at Harvey Stadium on Senior Night.
“I think our kids are ready to play Friday night,” Hembree said. “It would be big for us to get the win to go into the off-season. It would mean a lot to the seniors for all the hard work they've done. It would be a big lift for us.”
