P-T won't begin pool play until Friday with a pair of games. The first will be at 3 p.m. against Pawhuska. That will be followed by a 7:30 p.m. contest against Catoosa. , Pool play will continue early Saturday after- noon with a-pair consecutive games.

The Lady Demons opened the fall season Tuesday hosting Bethany. Results were not available at presstime. P-T played in two scrimmages on the road last week. The first was an eight-inning contest at Crescent last Tuesday followed by the annual scrimmage at Pawnee last Thursday. That one lasted nine innings. "As a whole, it was okay," head coach Carla Hart said about the scrimmages. "We didn't play terrible but we didn't play great." In both scrimmages, the Lady Demons got off to slow first inning starts and were forced to play catchup for the remainder of the varsity portion. In the several practices the team has had since beginning July 26, Hart said she's been pleased with the team's effort. However, she feels her young team needs to work on the mental part of the game. Hart termed it as "softball mental training" covering leadership, attitude, and dealing with pressure. We are still excited about this season and the potential this group of girls brings," Hart said. Next week, the Lady Demons will be on the road for softball action. On Monday, P-T will be in a round-robin at Meeker, which will include Holdenville to begin 66 Conference play. P-T's first game will be at 4 p.m. P-T will be at Kellyville on Tuesday for a varsity-JV doubleheader beginning at 4:30 p.m. The week will conclude with an appear- ance at a tournament in Perry beginning next Thursday.

Practice began under the hot Oklahoma sun Tuesday afternoon for P-T. Today will be the final day the Demons will be in shorts and t-shirts as the squad will put the pads on for the first time on Friday for some contact. The intrasquad scrim- mage will begin at 6 p.m. Saturday and will give Demon fans an opportu- nity to get a glimpse of this year's squad. The first offense and defense will see limited time on the field those units will go against the second group a series each. Then the rest of the scrimmage will put the second groups against the freshmen. Following the scrim- mage, head coach Lloyd Wertman will then intro- duce the players, manag- ers, and coaching staff to the crowd. The team was able to get the upcoming season on its mind as the senior players led team workouts on the practice field last week. Because of Oklahoma Sec- ondary School Activities Association rules, coaches are not allowed to be on the field with players during such workouts. Coaches were on the sidelines well away from the drills the team was going through. Wertman said the first week of practice would be used to build on the positives left from spring practice and the summer workouts. And the Demons entered the preseason prac- tices injury-free. Last spring was the first time P-T didn't participate in a team camp at the end of spring drills. Wertman said the coaching staff voted not to participate.
