Big district series for Stigler vs. Hilldale, more area sports

Stigler's baseball team enters its last District 4A-8 back-to-back series trailing Poteau (18-7, 8-2 District 4A-8) by half a game for the lead in the standings. Since Poteau holds the tiebreaker over Stigler, the Panthers need the Pirates to lose at least one game in its two-game series with Muldrow (5-10, 3-7 District 4A-8) for a shot at the district title. Here's a look at today's area matchups.
