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.
“It really sunk in about the time it happened,” said Poteau senior golfer Cathleen Manlove. “It was just exciting and overwhelming. It was one of those experiences that you never forget.”
Ever since last spring, Manlove has tried to make herself even better than she was a season ago.
“It's made me work harder,,” she said. “The 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.”
