Cameron baseball player raising money for breast-cancer victims
Cameron High School baseball player Austin Standridge is trying to make some noise — this time off the field. The Yellowjacket athlete is trying to help raise money for breast-cancer victims.For each home run that Standridge hits this fall, money will be donated to the LeFlore County chapter of the American Cancer Society. It's his Future Farmers of America (FFA) project.Donations may be made by either donating so much for every homer Standridge hits or a one-time monetary amount. All funds will stay in LeFlore County.For additional information, call Standridge at (918) 649-4063, Johnny Baker at (918) 647-2233, Cameron High School at (918) 654-3412 or the Cameron Booster Club at (918) 721-4005.Just a Reminder About Next Week's ColumnSince Monday is Labor Day and The Poteau Daily News will not publish a Tuesday morning paper next week, next week's Diamond Notes Column will appear in the Wednesday, Sept. 7 edition.ScheduleSoftballTodayHowe at Wister, DH, 4 p.m.Pocola at Panama, 4 p.m.Keota at Arkoma, 4 p.m.Panola at Leflore, 5 p.m.Buffalo Valley at Whitesboro, 4 p.m.Bokoshe at McCurtain, DH, 4 p.m.Heavener at Westville Tournament, TBA.Spiro and Antlers at Wilburton, 4:30 p.m. (Spiro vs. Antlers, 5:45 p.m.; Spiro vs. Wilburton, 7 p.m.)Talihina at Red Oak, 4 p.m.ThursdaySpiro at Poteau, 4 p.m.Bokoshe at Cameron, DH, 4 p.m.Talihina at Whitesboro, 4 p.m.Clayton at Leflore, 5 p.m.Red Oak at Panama, 4 p.m.Heavener and Sallisaw at Muldrow, 4 p.m. (Heavener vs. Muldrow, 4 p.m.; Heavener vs. Sallisaw, 5:15 p.m.)Howe and Checotah at Wilburton, 4 p.m. (Howe vs. Wilburton, 4 p.m.; Howe vs. Checotah, 5:30 p.m.)Pocola at Keota, 5 p.m.Wister at McCurtain, 4 p.m.FridayMcCurtain at Howe, DH, 5:15 p.m.TuesdayPocola at Poteau, 4 p.m.Spiro at Panama, 4 p.m.Talihina and Bokoshe at Wister, 4 p.m. (Talihina vs. Wister, 4 p.m.; Talihina vs. Bokoshe, 5:15 p.m.; Bokoshe vs. Wister, 6:30 p.m.)Battiest at Howe, 4:30 p.m.Kinta at Leflore, 5 p.m.Smithville and Stigler at Heavener, 4 p.m. (Smithville vs. Heavener, 4 p.m.; Smithville vs. Stigler, 5:15 p.m.; Stigler vs. Heavener, 6:30 p.m.)Panola at Whitesboro, 4 p.m.Arkoma at Gans, 4 p.m.BaseballTodayKinta at Leflore, 5:30 p.m.Whitesboro at Red Oak, 4 p.m.ThursdayWister at Cameron, 4 p.m.Kinta at Howe, 4:30 p.m.Whitesboro at Buffalo Valley, 5 p.m.FridayEagletown at Leflore, 4:30 p.m.Whitesboro at Clayton, 4 p.m.TuesdayHowe and McCurtain at Leflore, 3 p.m. (Howe vs. Leflore, 3 p.m.; Howe vs. McCurtain, 5 p.m.; McCurtain vs. Leflore, 7 p.m.)Crowder at Cameron, 4 p.m.Whitesboro at Panola, 5 p.m.
