In light of our upcoming celebrations for the 2011-2012 Homecoming: Basketball through the Ages, our athletic department would like to recognize Mrs. Mary Etta Bollier for her hard work, dedication, and encouragement to our school. Moyersâ€™ very own sweetheart, Mary Etta, has established deep roots in this mountain community and continues to invest in a school system that raised her just years before. She was a basketball star in her day, playing on a team that won 30 out of 33 games her sophomore year.
The Moyers Tigers spent the last week at the annual Coleman tourney.Â Up first for the Lady Tigers would be the Caney Cougars.Â The Ladies took to the court with desire but couldnâ€™t convert and fell behind 24-5 at the half.Â The Ladies recouped at half and came back out much more impressive scoring immediately and at the end of three it was 40-11.Â Caney had a tough inside game and the Lady Tigers battled hard.Â The much improved Lady Tigers showed good passing skills and moved the ball well, but fell short of their goal 49-13.Â

January Meeting of the Pushmataha County Sportsman Club
Members of the Pushmataha County Sportsman Club will hold their regular monthly meeting on Thursday, January 12. The club normally meets at 7:30 p.m. at the Wildlife Heritage Center and Museum. However, the club has agreed to postpone its meeting time to allow the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife to host a public meeting on proposed wildlife regulation changes. Their meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m. at the Wildlife Heritage Center. The Pushmataha County Sportsman Club members will meet immediately after the public meeting.
On December 29th and 30th Antlers hosted a Holiday Basketball Festival for local teams. Most of the games went smoothly but during the Bearcats and Rams Boyâ€™s game the crowd began to show their true colors with yelling at the referees, cursing at coaches and all in all bad sportsmanship on the part of the fans and parents in the stands.
