Four members of the Antlers High School Bearcat Baseball team hit homerums during their District Game against the Hartshorne Miners on April 28, 2011. The Bearcats ended up winning this game with a final score of 15 to 6. They then went on win another game against the Miners which clinced their spot in the Regional Tournament! Way to go Bearcats!
The four boys who hit homeruns were: Arizona Taylor, sophomore; Tyler Spear, senior; Kayl Bryant, senior; and Bryce Martin, sophomore. Needless to say the fans attending the game were more than excited as they cheered their team to victory.
Last Thursday's scramble was rained out. But that's OK because the rain really helped out. Definitely something the greens needed. They've grown more in the last week than in the first 4 months of the year.
The scramble will tee off at 6:00 p.m. this week if we don't get rained out again.
Big Randy Dillishaw is the league winner this year. Randy nudged Moe Calder out by 1/2 point. These two guys have been fighting it out all season.
On Tuesday, April 19, 2011 the Antlers Girls Golf Team participated in the Regional Qualifying Tournament in Sulpher at the Sulpher Hills Golf Course.
The Girl's team took home 4th place out of the schools that were in attendance and all four team members qualified to move on and participate in the Regional Tournament in Purcell on Tuesday, April 26, 2011.
The Antlers Girls Golf Team includes Megan Buchanan, Kaci Hokett, Hanna Maple and Breanna Rosa. The girls are coached by their proud and patient leader, Coach Mar
On April 16-17, members of the Pushmataha County Sportsman Club held their 40th Annual Big Bass Rodeo. The Big Bass Rodeo is a big bass tournament and is the longest, continuous running big bass tournament in the state. The tournament was held at Pine Creek Lake. Eighty-four anglers competed in the event. This number was down from previous years, most likely due to the extremely low lake level due to construction to make repairs on the dam.
Last Thursday we played CATS as not many people showed up for the scramble. Of course the threat of foul weather was in the air. We did get in 9 holes before the weather really started to deteriorate.
We had 3 players win CATS. Moe Calder, Randy Dillishaw and Brad Mills won 1 each. To win a CAT a person must win a hole over everyone who is playing. One ties, all tie. Big Randy and Moe also won KPs. Randy got 4 and Moe got 6.
I think everyone who participated enjoyed the format. As I stated last week, if 12 people don't show up we're gonna play CATS. Good idea Tina! Where were you?
On Monday, April 11, 2011 the Antlers Boys Golf Team participated in a Tournament at the Hugo Golf Club in Hugo against a large variety of different schools. Some of the schools included: Haileyville, Atoka, Pittsburg, Tushka, Hugo, Valliant, Allen and Haworth.
Overall the boys took home 3rd place in Team Totals being beaten out by Valliant, who got 1st, and Allen who took second. Coming in just behind Antlers was Haworth.
Antlers Springs Golf Course hosted one of my favorite tournaments last Wednesday, April 6th. That was t he annual High School Girls Tournament hosted by the Lady Cats Golf Team. Seven schools were represented and 24 girls played.
Antlers placed 3rd as a team in the tournament behind Haworth and Allen. Not bad considering our team is young and has a couple or three years left to play. Magan Buchanan, Hanna Maple, Kaci Hokett and Breanna Rosa make up our squad. Their total score was 450.
The Antlers High School Cheerleaders went to Durant on Wednesday, April 6, 2011 to support the Antlers Special Olympics Team.
The cheerleaders helped to liven up the participants spirits and helped to get them ready for action by doing silly hair and headbands for anyone who wanted it done.
This is the first of many community service activities that the Antlers Cheerleaders have planned.
On Wednesday, April 6, 2011 the Antlers High School Girls Golf Team hosted a golf tournament at the Antlers Springs Golf Course just outside of Antlers. Schools from around the area traveled to take part in this event. Some of the schools attending included Haworth, Valliant, Broken Bow, Allen, Pittsburg, Coalgate and Antlers.
Thirty-one members of the Pushmataha County Sportsman Club competed in a team bass tournament on April 2, 2011 at Sardis Lake. The tournament began at "safe light" with temperatures in the low 40â€™s and ended at 4:00 p.m. with temperatures in the low 80â€™s. Catching a keeper proved to be difficult as half of the anglers were unable to bring a keeper bass to the final weigh-in. Those who were able to find some "keeper" bass were able to put together some nice stringer weights.
