Last spring was a magical one for the Poteau Lady Pirates golf team as it won the Class 4A State Tournament and Hannah Ward won the individual state championship.
â€śIt really sunk in about the time it happened,â€ť said Poteau senior golfer Cathleen Manlove. â€śIt was just exciting and overwhelming. It was one of those experiences that you never forget.â€ť
Ever since last spring, Manlove has tried to make herself even better than she was a season ago.
â€śIt's made me work harder,,â€ť she said. â€śThe last few weeks, I've tried to spend as much time as I can out here [at Choctaw Country Club]. I want to work as hard as I can to get another state title.â€ť
