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.

This is the first of many community service activities that the Antlers Cheerleaders have planned.

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.

The Rattan Lady Rams competed in a MC-6 Tournament and brought home the John Rind MC-6 Tournament Girls Championship for the first time.Â Â Lady Rams Lyndi Noelâ€™s field goal in the last seconds of the game proved to be exactly what the Lady Rams needed to beat out the Valiant Lady Dawgs with a 34-32 win.
Coach Gibbs said that Login and Lyndi Noel both turned in a good game and despite a low shooting percentage for the Lady Rams in the first half, Lindsay Winship and Hayley Deaton provided just enough offense to keen the top seed close to last yearâ€™s tourney champion.
