LITTLE ROCK â With just three weeks until the annual rivalry game between Benton and Bryant, the two teams hosted a press conference at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock to promote the annual Salt Bowl.
Last year, Bryant defeated Benton 45-9 in front of an attendance of 20,206 but Benton holds the overall record of 24-13-1 in the series. Bryant, however, has defeated Benton for the past five years.
BENTON â New softball coach Heidi Cox is anxious to get underway. Too bad for her, the season doesnât start until the Spring.
âI almost wish softball was a fall sport, so we could go ahead and get started,â Cox said Thursday night at the Benton High School Cafeteria during a meet and greet for all the parents, fans and players.
âI am excited about taking over,â Cox said.
