With an undefeated conference record, the Glen Rose Lady Beavers are going into the 3A-5 District Tournament as the No. 1 seed.
In doing so, Glen Rose has a bye until the semifinal round of the tournament, which is scheduled to start Friday at Mayflower.
No matter what happens Saturday, when the Lady Beavers first play, head coach Kyle Lem said his team will advance to the 3A Regional Tournament held at Harding Academy in Searcy starting Friday, May 6.
However, donât expect the Lady Beavers to roll over any time soon.
âObviously we want to win so we can get a higher seed,â Lem said.
With the rain and weather Saline County has received in the last couple of days, the phrase âeverybody is in the same boatâ flirts with being a bad pun rather than a tired out cliche.
But for the Harmony Grove Lady Cardinals (and the rest of the 3A-5 Conference), everybody is in the same boat as most of the teams have not played in nearly a week due to the constant interruptions by Mother Nature.
âI am worried about being rusty and all that stuff,â coach Sammi Massey said. âMainly, Iâm a little concerned with our defense. We havenât been able to get on the field to practice.â
