Just a handful of diamond teams left now

At this time last week, LeFlore County had 12 high school fast-pitch softball teams and five high school fall baseball teams still playing on the diamond.However, those numbers were severely cut last week in district tournaments. Now, there are five softball and a single baseball team still playing.The Poteau Lady Pirates will begin postseason play Thursday in the Class 4A District Tournament, while the other teams will be in regional tournament with the hopes of making it to next weekend's state tournaments.Other than the Lady Pirates, no other teams got to be home for their regionals. Spiro was sent to Westville in Class 3A along with Sequoyah-Tahlequah and Stigler. Class 2A's defending state champion Panama was sent to Ketchum along with Wyandotte and Commerce. Wister was sent west to Tushka along with Latta and Colbert for another Class 2A Regional Tournament. Cameron is the closest non-Poteau team to stay relatively close to home as the Lady Yellowjackets were sent to Keota along with Kiefer and Welch in the Class A Regional Tournament.In baseball, the Wister Wildcats were sent to Rattan for the Class A Regional Tournament, but do have to chances to make state because both the regional champion and regional consolation champion make state.The complete postseason schedule is listed below.ScheduleSoftballTodayWestville at Poteau, 4:30 p.m.Panama at Red Oak, DH, 4 p.m.ThursdayClass 4A District TournamentMuldrow at Poteau, 4, 5:30 and 7 p.m. (last game only if necessary)Class 3A Regional Tournament at WestvilleSpiro vs. Westville, noon; Sequoyah-Tahlequah vs. Stigler, 2 p.m.; Spiro-Westville loser vs. Sequoyah-Tahlequah/Stigler loser, 4 p.m.; Spiro-Westville winner vs. Sequoyah-Tahlequah/Stigler winner, 6 p.m.Class 2A Regional Tournamentsat KetchumPanama vs. Ketchum, noon; Commerce vs. Wyandotte, 2 p.m.; Panama-Ketchum loser vs. Commerce-Wyandotte loser, 4 p.m.; Panama-Ketchum winner vs. Commerce-Wyandotte winner, 6 p.m.At TushkaWister vs. Colbert, noon; Latta vs. Tushka, 2 p.m.; Wister-Colbert loser vs. Latta-Tushka loser, 4 p.m.; Wister-Colbert winner vs. Latta-Tushka winner, 6 p.m.Class A Regional Tournament at KeotaKiefer vs. Keota, noon; Cameron vs. Welch, 2 p.m.; Kiefer-Keota loser vs. Cameron-Welch loser, 4 p.m.; Kiefer-Keota winner vs. Cameron-Welch winner, 6 p.m.FridayClass 3A Regional Tournament at Westville4 p.m. Thursday winner vs. 6 p.m. Thursday loser, noon; winner vs. 6 p.m. Thursday winner, 2 p.m.; If-Game, 4 p.m.Class 2A Regional TournamentsAt Ketchum4 p.m. Thursday winner vs. 6 p.m. Thursday loser, noon; winner vs. 6 p.m. Thursday winner, 2 p.m.; If-Game, 4 p.m.At Tushka4 p.m. Thursday winner vs. 6 p.m. Thursday loser, noon; winner vs. 6 p.m. Thursday winner, 2 p.m.; If-Game, 4 p.m.Class A Regional Tournament at Keota4 p.m. Thursday winner vs. 6 p.m. Thursday loser, noon; winner vs. 6 p.m. Thursday winner, 2 p.m.; If-Game, 4 p.m.BaseballThursdayClass A Regional Tournament at RattanHaworth vs. Rattan, noon; Wister vs. Tushka, 2 p.m.; Haworth-Rattan winner vs. Wister-Tushka winner, 4 p.m. (winner to state); Haworth-Rattan loser vs. Wister-Tushka loser, 6 p.m. FridayClass A Regional Tournament at RattanConsolation championship, 2 p.m. (winner to state)
