The Carl Albert State College Vikings baseball team is opening postseason play tonight when they meet the Western Oklahoma State College at 7 p.m. in the first round of the Region II Tournament at Bartlesvilleâ€™s Doenges Ballpark.
This postseason parade is especially important to Poteauâ€™s Connor Gilstrap, a sophomore outfielder.
â€śItâ€™s almost over,â€ť Gilstrap said about his playing career. â€śThis is going to be it for me. It was an honor just to get to go play at the next level, and have a little bit more time to play than just in high school. Iâ€™m ready to move on now. Iâ€™ve had my time. It was a great time, meeting new guys â€” and it was a privilege to get to play for coach (Mark) Pollard. Heâ€™s a good coach.â€ť
