The Harmony Grove senior high girls basketball team got back to work on Tuesday when they traveled to Carlisle for the Carlisle Christmas Tournament. The Lady Cardinals got things under way against Maumelle, but the outcome was not very good as they fell 55-39 Tuesday morning.
â€śIt was a sloppy, early-morning game,â€ť head Lady Cardinalsâ€™ Coach John White said. â€śBoth teams finally settled in later on.â€ť
The Bauxite Lady Miners came back from their week and a half break and lost 60-49 to the Magnet Cove Lady Panthers on Tuesday in the Jessieville Christmas Classic in Jessieville.
â€śWe didnâ€™t play really well,â€ť Bauxite Coach Josh Harrison said. â€śMagnet Cove played with a lot of effort and intensity [Tuesday] and we didnâ€™t match theirs today.â€ť
The Lady Miners (9-4) didnâ€™t have a problem scoring in the first quarter finishing with 19 points, but defensively, Bauxite couldnâ€™t stop Magnet Cove, allowing it to score 18 points in the opening quarter.
Almost $15,000 was raised for the Bryant Boys and Girls Club at the inaugural Starlight Gala, presented by Landers of Benton and organized by the Bryant Rotary Club.
â€śWe could not be more pleased with and grateful to our community for the overwhelming support at this event,â€ť Suzanne Passmore, executive director of the Bryant Boys and Girls Club said. â€śLanders of Benton, Bryant Rotary and so many others went above and beyond to make this a successful event to benefit our kids.â€ť
