Costner Elected to State Office The Allen High School Chapter of the Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) would like to congratulate Emilee Costner on being elected as an Oklahoma FCCLA State Offi-

cer. Emilee was elected as the 2013-2014 FCCLA Southeast Vice President and will serve over 13,000 FCCLA members throughout Oklahoma. Emilee went through the interview process of becom-

ing a state officer candidate in January where she was selected as one of the top 20 leaders in Oklahoma FCCLA out of a pool of over 75 candidates. She then had to wait until the election at the FCCLA

State Convention on April 5th when members from across Oklahoma came together and voted for the new State Executive Council. At the end of the convention the results of the elections were announced and

Emilee Costner, pictured here with her family (left to right) Kathryn Costner, Eula Tilley, Pat Bullard, Lesli Costner, Emilee, Tim Costner, Meegan Costner and Wayne Bullard, was named as a FCCLA State Officer at the recent State Conference.

Emilee was installed as a state officer. Emilee is the first person from Allen High School to ever be elected as a state FCCLA officer. She will have a very busy and exciting year ahead of her as she represents Allen High School and Oklahoma FCCLA on the state and national levels. Some of her duties will include planning and conducting workshops, installing district officers, and leading chapter officer trainings throughout Oklahoma. The state officer team also plans and presides over state convention, works with members to increase membership, and helps to raise awareness of FCCLA throughout the state. The Allen FCCLA chapter was also honored at the FCCLA State Convention as one of only 10 “Gold Star” chapters out of over 400 chapters throughout Oklahoma. Allen FCCLA members also received a “Grant a Wish” award from the Oklahoma Alumni and Associates organization during the convention.

Quote of the Week . . . “I used to dread getting older because I thought I would not be able to do all the things I wanted to do . . . now that I am older I find I don’t want to do them.” —CC— I often talk about the “good old days.” My friend, the late George Cotton, also enjoyed talking about them. He told me that for the first time in many years, he went to a movie. At the move, he told the girl who handed him his fivedollar ticket, “I can remember when a movie ticket was only fifteen-cents.” “You are really going to enjoy this movie then, sir,” said the ticket girl. “They have sound now.” George said, “My first thought was to take my cane and bop her on the head, but instead I just turned on my hearing aids and went in. As I left the movie I thought to myself that the movie would have been more enjoyable if it had been silent.” —CC— Speaking of the “good old days”, how many of you remember Murphy beds? Murphy beds are on the upswing. More homeowners are installing the frequently lampooned beds, rather than renovating or moving to a bigger home. The beds, which swing up into a wall for vertical storage, help home offices serve as bedrooms and vice versa. California Closets uses faux doors to conceal the mattress in its wall beds, which can be integrated with desks, shelves and other furniture. The company’s wall beds, which start at $2,500, include cabinetry and mattress. Murphy beds have come a long way from their rickety roots. Most of the new iterations can hold a regular mattress in any size—from twin to a California king—making them more comfortable than the foldable pads found in many sofa beds. Ranging in price from several hundred dollars to tens of thousands for more elaborate designs, the new Murphy beds blend more effectively with their surroundings. The old wood-paneled exteriors have been replaced with expensive cabinetry, the facade of an armoire or even a flat-screen television. “It’s not like the one you saw in your grandma’s house—very old, very clunky,” says Eric Fleming, a vice president for Corcoran Group, who sells homes in Manhattan. “It adds a lot of value because it’s so practical and it doesn’t take up much space.” The growing interest in Murphy beds comes as Americans are building smaller homes and making fewer changes to their existing houses. The size of the average new single-family home in 2010 was about 2,400 square feet, down about 5% from 2007, according to the U.S. Census. Remodeling activity is down so far this year, continuing a trend of about the past five years,

Chelsea & Trevor to Wed

Kirk and Tracy Hill are pleased to announce the upcoming wedding of their daughter, Chelsea Brooke Hill, to Trevor Hayes Griffith, son of Frank and Denise Griffith. The bride-elect is a 2010 graduate of Allen High School. She is currently working at Women’s Heath Center, Ada, and is continuing her nursing studies. Chelsea is the granddaughter of the late Jim and Debbie Cole of Alma, Arkansas, and Dodie Hill and the late A.V. Hill of Pauls Valley, Oklahoma. The prospective groom is a 2009 graduate of Allen High School and will be graduating from East Central University this May with a degree in Business. Trevor is currently employed at People’s Electric Coop in Ada. Trevor is the grandson of John and the late Dot Rippee of Allen, and James and Gwen Griffith of Atwood. The couple will be united in marriage at Camp WOW, Gerty, on May 18, 2013. Rev. Walter Kuhlman, Calvin, will officiate the 4:00 p.m. ceremony.

according to data from the National Association of Home Builders. “People have invested in staying in the homes that they’re in,” says Ginny Snook Scott, vice president of sales and marketing for California Closets, the home-organization chain that is a unit of FirstService Corp. Online inquiries for wall beds have doubled in the past 18 months, she says. Converting a bedroom into a home office is a common adaptation among people who work from home. Last year, 1 in 4 employed people did some or all of their work from home, up from 1 in 5 in 2007, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. William Murphy came up with the wall-bed concept at the turn of the 20th century, according to Matthew Lahn, general manager of Murphy Bed Co., which calls itself the “original Murphy Bed Company,” although any manufacturer can use the name Murphy bed. Mr. Murphy was looking for a socially acceptable way to have a woman visit his studio apartment, Mr. Lahn says. The concept was a hit with hotels and quickly became a slapstick comedy staple for the likes of Charlie Chaplin, Mickey Mouse and Abbott and Costello. Murphy Bed Co., in Farmingdale, N.Y., ships several thousand beds a year, Mr. Lahn says. “They’re becoming much more prevalent in private residences,” he says. Some recent installations the company has done include Murphy beds in

a home gym and a Hamptons boathouse, he says. Shamaya Gilo has a Murphy bed in an alcove adjacent to the living room of her Manhattan penthouse to accommodate guests and visits by her grown daughter. “Blowing up an air mattress takes twice as long as pulling out a Murphy bed and converting it into a bedroom,” Ms. Gilo says. The unit’s exterior, finished in a pale-green lacquer, was designed to match Ms. Gilo’s contemporary décor. It has built-in shelving and storage space, including a wardrobe closet and nightstands that become small bookcases when the unit is closed. “You don’t know it’s there” when the bed isn’t in use, she says. “I’ve created this very monochromatic, clean look so that this structure hanging on the wall doesn’t feel like an imposition to the room.” Ron McKey, owner of FlyingBeds, a Denver manufacturer, says the newer versions of Murphy beds have improved liftingand-lowering mechanisms, which mean a high-quality mattress can be lifted with the same effort required for a thin futon.

Hardware improvements also enable owners to create more elaborate disguises for the bed in its upright position, without worrying about weight. Mr. McKey says he has mounted fully functioning flat-screen television sets on the outside of his wall beds. He has also

covered the outside with a large, heavy mirror. “I’m big on deception,” he says. Pat Splinter, in Granite Bay, Calif., says she had two wall beds installed in her large bedroom for her grandchildren to use while staying with her on weekends. Although she has spare bedrooms in her

home, Ms. Splinter wanted the children closer to her and her husband at night. “I can’t stick them way on the other side of the house. They’re too young, and I’m too lazy,” she says. After researching online, Ms. Splinter ordered two twin-size wall beds from FlyingBeds. The beds, each encased in a freestanding, armoire-like piece of furniture, flank a fireplace. Ms. Splinter says her granddaughter calls it her “magic bed.” —CC— And last of all, my favorite story of the week . . . A wife complained to her husband about the bad manners of her new neighbor. “If that woman yawned once, Albert, while I was talking, she yawned a dozen times.” To which Albert replied, “Maybe she wasn’t yawning, dear. Maybe she was trying to say something.”

Threads of Life

by Cleo LeVally As I have gotten older, the nieces and nephews of my family are calling me and asking questions about our family history. Last week I received a call from a niece in California who wanted to know about her Dad growing up in Oklahoma. So I pulled out my files and made copies of some of the family history that I have and mailed it to her. There is much history of my family in the town we grew up in, even today. My mother’s family, Jake and Frances Louise came to the town by wagon train with the Jonas B. Milner family, in 1892. Al Cummings, my mother’s brother-in-law who had lost his wife, my mother’s older sister in Arkansas, and an uncle, George Pegg, rode horseback and came to Indian Territory in 1889. Al Cummings bought land; for a while lived in a log cabin and built later

My Early Childhood

a two story house. In its last years it was called the ‘Bain’ house. My family lived in that house during my high school days. Al Cummings eventually had a ranch, built a large two story building in town, which still bears his name and was a very prominent member of that town. Years later one of my mother’s nephews, Judge Orel Busby, bought that house and land, and our family lived there. My father was the caretaker. Orel also bought a large acreage four miles from Allen, which he named the 4-B Ranch (after himself and his three sons) and raised cattle on it. That land in the 1880’s was called Buffalo Springs, as it was a large buffalo range and Indians came in every winter to kill buffalo for the hides and meat. All of my mother’s brothers established businesses in Allen. John Pegg had a depart-

ment store; Will Pegg opened a bank; and her sister, Elizabeth and her husband, George Busby, (parents of Orel) had a drug store. Hubert Pegg, one of the sons of Will Pegg, built a small oil drilling rig and began to drill oil wells. The records show that he drilled over one hundred wells in the area in those early days. His charge to drill the wells was a small piece of the royalty. Some of those wells are still producing and his great-grandson, Dickie Pegg, still has some of that royalty.

O rel Busby went to law school, opened his law office and later became a judge on the Oklahoma Supreme Court. He was the inspiration for my brother, Leon Emerson, to attend law school and Leon also later became a judge on the municipal court in Downey, California. Jack Emerson, son of Earl Emerson, brother of my father, Will Emerson, has an office in Allen, so my ties are still there. Because of my history in Allen, Bill Robinson, owner of The Allen Advocate, asked

One Pharmacist’s View THE ALLEN ADVOCATE, APRIL 11, 2013- PAGE 5

There was so much energy in the great hall you could just feel it. It was a little surreal, thousands of high school kids crammed into the convention center—all yelling and jumping around like it was a rock concert or something—but it wasn’t. It was the FCCLA meeting at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City and we were honored guests of the Allen FCCLA Chapter and honored we were. Current officers were ushered in with

On Being You ng

a bang followed by a “Pants on Fire” motivational speech by Laymon Hicks of Tampa, Florida. Hicks pretty much set the feisty crowd on fire as he set the tone for the day. In the midst of the chaos there was a lot of order and purpose. It was a good setting for high-school aged kids to get a grip on their ambitions, setting new goals and finding ways to achieve. For me it was a good time to observe and see how many of our young people are responding to times that are often described as tough—about kids said to be at risk. I heard a well-known national news anchor last week describe this same group of kids as “lost” because of bad economic times. He pointed out that many young college graduates were working at menial labor and being victimized by the “system.” It was a gloomy outlook, he said. We had the same predic-

Light from God’s Word

Mark Legg, Allen church of Christ Have you ever had a religious discussion with someone and they defended their position by saying something like, “Well, I feel this way about it,” or “I just can’t accept the idea that God would…,” or, maybe, “I don’t think we must…..” When a person says such things, it is clear that his basic authority in religious matter is himself, his feeling or his wisdom and understanding. It is such a shame that the idea of Biblical authority is foreign to many good people. To them the ultimate deciding factor in religious matters is their own idea, thinking or feeling and what the Bible teaches does not matter. Doesn’t it seem a

little strange that men should think they know as much as God? How can we who have been created by God and who live by the power of God, think we understand the will of God and what is necessary for God to save us? How can we who have always disobeyed (sinned) God; who are “like an unclean thing” and whose righteousness is as “filthy rags” (Isaiah 64:6) presume to know the mind of God? Can what seems right to us be the will of God? By inspiration of God, the wise man wrote, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.” (Prov 14:12) We must not be deceived into thinking we know the mind of God. He says, “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8-9) Surely, all of us need to examine our ways! Are we worshipping and serving God by what seems right to us or by the authority of God’s word in the Bible?

tions many years ago—during the 30’s—something called “The Great Depression.” The economic setback had been so severe during that time that some people actually starved to death and many of our young men were deemed to be unfit for military service because of malnutrition-related health problems. That generation was also frequently described as “lost.” In a short time this same generation had overcome this worse economic failure in history—the same people that rose to the occasion and won World War II and then came home and built the greatest economic machine in the history of the world. They were the same ones who gave us the internet and went to the moon—and back. They built the interstate highways and we soared to new levels of prosperity and freedom—becoming the envy of the world. Our kids have fought their way through all sorts of social and family disruptive influences, withstood the annoying decay of TV and Hollywood which seems to have poisoned the very essence of America with their attacks on morals, God and Country. If you listen to the “Main Stream Media” you would not only hear that these things are happening but a done thing. You would hear our kids are illiterate and our teachers are graduating people who can’t even read. Yet, somehow through all this,

our education system is still the envy of the world, producing workers that still outperform all others. Yep. I saw a lot of good things in Oklahoma City last week. I saw thousands of good looking, clean cut kids working for a better future for them and for America. I saw our own Allen delegation excelling and taking charge of things—winning elections

and succeeding. I saw many teachers, teachers like our own Katrina Lewis, working above and beyond the call of duty seeing to it that our kids at least have a good crack at freedom, success and prosperity—just like we did. I have great hopes for this generation. Have a great weekend and be sure and support our kids, their school and their teams. They deserve it. And be sure and go to church this Sunday.

In an attempt to disrupt crews and draw attention to the 1,179 mile TransCanada Keystone pipeline as it goes thru Hughes County, protesters gathered Tuesday morning, April 9th, carrying picket signs and effectively stopping the work being done east of Allen. The $5.3 billion pipeline is designed to ship crude oil from Canadian tar sands to refineries on the Gulf Coast and in the Midwest. When completed, the pipeline will carry up to 830,000 barrels

We sell with pride & service with integrity

of oil each day. S upporters of the project say it would create approximately 16,000 jobs (9,000 construction jobs and 7,000 manufacturing positions) and reduce America’s dependence on foreign oil. O pponents of the pipline worry about possible impact on the environment and dismiss claims that the pipeline would help boost the economy. Critics contend that the crude oil passing through the line could contain oil sands, which could corrode the transmission line and lead to spills. The TransCanada company contends that the oil will not corrode the pipeline. O ne 79-year old woman locked herself to a piece of heavy machinery to halt work

on the pipeline. Using a bicycle-lock around her neck, she attached herself directly to a massive earthmover known as an excavator. Members of the Atwood Fire Department were called in with their Jaw-of-Life tool to cut the chain and free the woman. When the machine was unable to cut thru the lock without causing discomfort to the woman, she gave firemen the key to the lock and the chain was removed. She was removed from the scene by Hughes county deputies. Ms. Zorn has been released from Hughes County Jail on a $250 bail after being charged with trespassing. The Allen protest is just one of several staged by the small group of individuals seeking to delay construction of the pipeline.

Atwood First Baptist Church News

Humble as it is, a beans and cornbread meal is hard to beat, and you are invited to one! This Saturday evening, April 13th, our church will host a bean supper for the community at—where else?—the Atwood Community Building. There may not be a free lunch but this bean supper really is free of charge. We will be serving between 5:30 and 7:00 so when you get hungry for supper come on over and supply the good company to go with the good food. Also some of the ladies in the church will have a garage sale at the church that day so come by

and see if there is anything you like or can’t live without. The after school program is still meeting on Wednesday evenings from 4:00 to 6:00. With so many kids together you know that besides Bible lessons and help with homework they are having fun. Souls are also being saved, and of course that is what is most important. This Sunday Denison Pickett, Jesse Massey, Caleb Massey, and Joshua Massey opened our services by singing “Because He Lives.” We certainly enjoyed hearing them and hope they will sing for us again soon.

Justin Scuggins, of Claremore, sang two specials during the service. The first was “Our Lord Will Show Up” and “At the Midnight Cry.” His voice was almost equally as impressive as his message, and we certainly hope Justin and his family return to participate in our services often. R ev. Karch’s message was based in Acts 12:1-19 and James 3:2-14. Herod had begun arresting members of the local church in Jerusalem. When he had the disciple James killed it pleased the Jews so he seized Peter, too, and put him in prison under heavy guard.

Herod thought he was in control of events, but the church was earnestly praying, and of course the events proved that God was in control instead. An angel delivered Peter from the prison in such an astounding way that Peter thought for a while that he was having a vision. When he arrived at the house where many in the church had gathered they were still praying. Prayer is still important today and God still answers prayer. Then, we’re not sure but the preacher may have quit preachin’ and started meddlin’. In the

third chapter of James we read about how difficult it is to tame the tongue. It takes keeping ourselves under God’s control to gain control over it. O ur words can cause much harm and much hurt so putting ourselves under God’s control in this matter is very important. If we are mean to another person we are hurting someone God made in His own image and He loves them. Meddlin’ or not, every so often we need to be reminded about this matter because once hurtful words are said they can’t be unsaid.

Lady Mustangs set for action in Moss softball tournment Allen girls coming off close loss to close loss to Vanoss, run-rule loss to Maud

By HERMAN BROWN Allen correspondent The Allen Lady Mustangs will open play Thursday in the annual Moss Invitational slow-pitch softball tournament. The 3-day event will continue through Saturday at the Moss High School softball diamond.

Coach Jeremy Strong’s AHS girls will continue the spring campaign next week with a pair of back to back home dates. The Lady Mustangs will play Wanette on April 15 and then will host Stonewall on April 16. In recent action, Allen suffered a pair of losses to Vanoss and Maud. Both defeats came at

home Monday in a 3-team roundrobin. Allen came close to pulling out a victory against Vanoss. However, the Lady Wolves escaped the Lady Mustangs with a narrow 5-4 triumph. Allen’s other game on Monday was not as close. The Lady Mustangs were humbled 10-0 by Maud. The Lady Tigers scored the double-digit verdict in run-rule fashion. Looking ahead, Coach Strong will be hoping his Lady Mustangs catch fire in the Moss tournament. The field of teams will provide quite a challenge for the eventual winner. The most important thing for all the teams is to start playing solid softball. The playoffs are looming and it is the right time to be getting ready for a post-season run. Here are the squad members on Coach Strong’s Lady Mustangs team this spring: --AT A GLANCE AHS softball results 3/5 vs Stratford (3A), lost 11-7 3/7 @ Roff (2A), lost 13-3 3/11 @ Mill Creek (A), lost 11-2 3/12 vs Asher (A) #9, lost 15-2 --RWB Conference Tournament 3/14 - Vanoss (3A) #23, lost 10-3

Sunday we enjoyed the fellowship of our church family and prayed for the healing of many of our friends and neighbors. Murphy sang our special for the day, “I Love You Written in Red.”  We are studying about the early church after the crucifixion of Jesus.  Bro. Larry’s sermon was taken from Acts 5:25-32 and entitled “We are Witnesses.”  After the crucifixion the followers of Jesus scattered.  They feared for their lives.  Now six weeks later they were willing to stand up, speak, teach and even go to jail.  They now had an inward power they had never known.  The Apostles knew all too well that these men could do them great harm.  In spite of the possibility of great personal harm, they persisted in telling their story.  They were immersed in something bigger than themselves.  These were now men who sensed that they were on a mission for God.  They were speaking fearlessly, like some of those great witnesses of the past.  Their aim was to proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God.  They spoke because eternity was in the balance.  The God of our fathers raised Jesus from the dead.  Jesus offers forgiveness of sins to those who repent.  They had been with Jesus right up to the crucifixion.  They had been with Jesus after the resurrection.  The Holy Spirit had filled them with the presence and power of Jesus.  After the crucifixion, they huddled in an upper room until Jesus appeared.  After the resurrection and ascension they returned to that upper room.  It was in that upper room that everything changed.  The Holy Spirit gave them the power of be the witnesses they were told they would be.   The Promise of the Holy Spirit was and is now, a reality.  Have you been filled with that same power from on high?  Are you a witness? Saturday night at 6:00 at the Atwood Fire Dept., along with the Baptist Church,   we will be having a community “Bean Supper.”  There will be singing and a lot of good food.  We invite everyone to attend.

Mustangs looking for success at Moss Allen hoping to end recent skid in varsity baseball action

By HERMAN BROWN Allen correspondent

The Allen Mustangs will be looking to get back in the win column this week in the Moss Pirate baseball tournament. Coach Stephen Caldwell will send his AHS squad into action at 1 p.m. Thursday at the Moss High School baseball diamond. Allen will square off against Macomb in the first round showdown. The Mustangs are expecting to have a successful stay in the tournament in Hughes County. For Coach Caldwell, the key to success will come from the offensive phase of the game. “We need to wake up our bats,” the first-year head coach said. “We have been getting people on base, but then leaving them there. We have to take care of that and capitalize on our scoring opportunities.” The field of teams in the Moss tournament is pretty solid. Even so, Coach Caldwell has faith that his Mustangs will find a way to win there this week. “If we are not playing on Saturday, I might resign,” he said, jokingly. “But we will have to

do a better job with our bats. That much is for sure.” Last week, Allen struggled in the Stuart Hornet baseball tournament. The event was rained out on Thursday. Stuart officials then moved the site of the games to the Jim Waller Sports Complex in Preston. The change of scenery did little to help Coach Caldwell’s squad. Hartshorne notched a 16-1 win over the Mustangs in the Friday contest. The Miners banged out nine hits and used four AHS errors to take the game in only three innings. Hartshorne scored four times in the first inning, three times in the second inning and then plated nine runs in the third inning. Allen managed only three hits and one run in the game. The Mustangs scored in the bottom of the third inning. The hitters were Matt McCarn with a single and 1 RBI, Dakota Nickell with a double and Conner Johnson with a single. Allen’s pitching featured three players. Nick Wallen worked 1 inning full inning and into the second inning. He was charged with 7 runs on 3 hits, 6 walks and hit 1 batter.

He had 1 strikeout. Conner Johnson came in to pitch in the second inning and allowed 6 on 4 hits and 2 walks and struck out 2 batters. Dakota Nickel worked the final inning and allowed 3 runs on 2 hits and hit 1 batter. He did not record any strikeouts. Allen played a second game at Preston on Friday. The Mustangs were right in the middle of this contest before falling 7-6 to Crowder. The Mustangs had 7 hits to 5 by the Demons. However, AHS came up one run short in the 7-inning contest. Allen’s hitting included seven players with one hit each. The list is as follows: Tommy Peay: 1-3, with a double Conner Johnson, 1-2, with a double Nick Wallen: 1-4 Matt McCarn: 1-4 Zack Conley: 1-4 Drew Back: 1-3, with a double Dakota Nickell: 1-2 Allen’s pitching staff included two players. Tommy Peay got the start and worked 3 innings. He allowed 4 runs on 3 hits and 6 walks. He recorded strikeouts.

Tre’ Stick came on in relief and worked the final 4 innings. Stick surrendered 3 runs on 2 hits and 3 walks. He ended up with 2 strikeouts. The 1-run loss eliminated Allen from the Stuart tournament at Preston. On Monday, Allen hosted the Roff Tigers and suffered an 11-1 setback to the visitors. “We didn’t play very well,” said Coach Caldwell. “It was just a 5-inning game (a runrule loss).” Thirkiel Wedlow provided the only offensive highlight. He was 2 for 3 at the plate with a pair of singles and drove in one run. Tre’ Stick was the losing pitcher. He started on the mound and was then replaced by Tommy Peay. The freshman relief pitcher worked the rest of the game in the 10-run loss. On Tuesday, Allen played much better baseball. However, the Mustangs still came out on the short end of a 13-11 loss to the visiting Weleetka Outlaws. Allen opened the scoring with a run in the bottom of the first inning. Weleetka then stormed back with 7 runs in the top of the third inning to take control, 7-1. The Outlaws added 3 runs in the fourth inning, one run in the fifth inning and 2 more runs in the sixth inning. Allen had a slight edge in hits, 6-4, but also made 5 errors to 4 by the Outlaws. Allen’s hitting featured

Thirkiel Wedlow and Zack Conley with 2 singles each. Matt McCarn added a double and Tre’ Stick poked a single to complete the 6-hit attack. Allen’s pitching in the loss included 3 players. Shawn Rolen started and went 3 and 2/3 innings. Rolen allowed 7 runs on 3 hits and 5 walks and recorded 4 strikeouts. Conner Johnson came on in relief and worked 2 and 1/3 innings. Johnson allowed 4 runs on 0 hits and 3 walks while recording 2 strikeouts. Nick Wallen pitched the final inning and allowed 2 runs on 1 hit, 2 walks and recorded 1 strikeout. --Stuart Hornet tournament Friday @ Preston Hartshorne 16, Allen 1 Harts – 439 – (16-9-0) Allen – 001 – (1-3-4) --Friday @ Preston Crowder 7, Allen 6 Allen - 041 100 0 – (6-7-3) Crow – 013 200 1 – (7-5-2) --On Monday @ Allen Roff 11, Allen 1 Allen pitching: Tre’ Stick Tommy Peay, Hitting leader: Thirkiel Wedlow: 2-3 with RBI --Weleetka 13, Allen 11 Wel – 007 312 0 – (13-4-4) All – 100 190 0 – (11-6-5)
