A great day for the county

Thursday was a great day for LeFlore County.

Poteau's girls wrapped up the Class 4A state tournament by winning the tournament by 21 strokes over Anadarko and Hannah Ward was the medalist in the tournament.

The win was the first team state championship for Poteau since the late 1970s and Ward became only the second golfer to win an individual championship, to go along with the one Kyle Cofer won.

But that was far from the only good news.

The Spiro and Wister baseball teams won both their games Thursday to move within a game of making the state tournament.

While defending state champion Wister was expected to win both its games and the Wildcats did in defeating Haworth, 9-4 and Hartshorne, 3-1, Spiro pulled off a big one.

After defeating Morris, 9-5, in the first round of the regional tournament, the Bulldogs then defeated third-ranked Eufaula on its home field, 12-6, to move into the championship game of the tournament.

Wister and Spiro only have to win one more game to advance to the state tournament.

The only negative was Pocola lost to Hartshorne in the first round of the Wister regional and played a elimination game later Thursday.
