Monthly McAlester News-Capital Roundup

Even for a monthly roundup, this one seems especially long. September is arguably the most intense month in the high school sports calendar, so that’s probably the biggest reason why. There’s softball and baseball playoffs, volleyball and football and cross country.

Despite all the different teams to cover and all the seniors (and there were a lot of seniors playing fall sports at McAlester) to spotlight, this is still far and away my favorite time of the year. It’s hard to believe the softball season is already over and the football season is half over.

And to be honest, I’d much rather be busy and stressed about having to do many things to write about than be bored and scrambling for stories (which is the case in the summer).

Here’s everything I’ve written in the last month.
