I was hoping that the 2014 LeFlore County Slow-Pitch Softball Tournament would be as exciting as the baseball one was the week before. I got my wish.
Just like the baseball county tournament, the slow-pitch county tournament was forced to the if-game — and an if-game that had some drama as until the final out was made the game was still in doubt. We saw a new county queen crowned, the Heavener Lady Wolves, as they won the school's first-ever softball county title. However, they also suffered their first loss of the season, losing to Pocola in the first title game Thursday night.
Of course, when both county tournaments end in the spring, you know what that means. The playoffs are just around the corner.
