Poteau girls garner top seed in LCT; Pocola No. 2; this fall's tournament will take place in Panama

Who knew when the Pocola Lady Indians and the Poteau Lady Pirates played last week it could very well be a prelude to this month's LeFlore County Fast-Pitch Softball Tournament. If the seeding holds true, that will end up happening on Sept. 19.The Lady Pirates were named the top seed of this fall's county tournament, with the Lady Indians being second, at Wednesday's seeding meeting at Western Sizzlin'The Lady Pirates blanked the Lady Indians 2-0 last week.Panama was named the third seed, Wister fourth and Heavener fifth. Spiro was named the sixth seed, Whitesboro seventh, Cameron eighth, Talihina ninth, Howe 10th, Arkoma 11th and Bokoshe 12th.Leflore will not participate in this fall's tournament, which will be Sept. 16-19 at Panama.The reason why the Poteau Area Recreational Complex won't be used, as is normally the case, is because the PARC is not available that week due to other league action taking place. Normally the county tournament is the second full week of September. Since the softball season started a week later, it meant the county tournament will take place the third full week of September, thus conflicting with previously-scheduled league action at the PARC.
