With three starters potentially returning to the lineup, Bauxite head coach Wes Mode hopes the Lady Miners can produce some last-minute magic at the 4A-7 District Tournament in Ashdown.
If proven to be fully recovered, returning for the Lady Miners will be junior Bethany Edwards, sophomore Allie Beech and senior Shelby Wingate.
Both Edwards, Bauxiteâ€™s starting pitcher, and Wingate, who Mode said will start at first base, have been recovering from surgery. Beech broke a bone in her pinky finger earlier this season.
BENTON â€” For the first time in his 21 years at Benton High School, coach Mark Balisterri witnessed the impossible. After trailing 11-0 after the top of the second inning, the Panthers were able to kick, scratch and crawl back to defeat Sheridan 12-11 at home Wednesday afternoon.
â€śIâ€™ve never had a team down 11-0 and come back like that,â€ť Balisterri said. â€śWe came back because we hit the ball.
â€śCarson came in and just a phenomenal job [pitching] after being roughed up for five runs in the second.â€ť
