Poteau Pirate senior cross country runners anxious to run again, make state; Pirates, Lady Pirates participating at Class 4A Regional Meet this afternoon at ORU

The Poteau High School cross country runners, other than those who participated in Thursday's Vike@Nite at Carl Albert State College, have been idle of competition for almost a month. They haven't ran since the Oct. 10 Claremore Invitational. The Chili Pepper Invitational was rained out on Oct. 5 at Fayetteville, Ark.So, needless to say the runners are chomping at the bit to get back on the course once more. That chance will happen at 1 this afternoon at the Class 4A Regional Meet at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa.
