With the first part of the school year nearly over, we can look back and see a lot of success being accomplished. The Checotah softball team had a great season under a new coaching staff that has embraced the Wildcats’ vision. Eufaula Lady Ironheads made school history by winning the Super Regional and competing in their first state tournament.
In football action, Checotah has turned the corner and defeated Eufaula and this week punched their ticket to postseason play. The Eufaula Ironheads are No. 1 in district play and still have No. 2 Idabel on the schedule. If they defeat the Warriors, Eufaula will have won its fifth consecutive district championship. This Saturday, both schools’ Cross-Country programs will be competing in Regional meets to determine who goes to the state tournament. Both marching bands have had a great year so far as have the cheerleading teams.
It’s great to be in McIntosh County right now with so much success happening in our school systems. Let’s continue to support our school programs and be the best we can be.
