DUMAS â The Bauxite Miners knew Wednesdayâs task of facing the No. 1 seed Pine Bluff Dollarway wasnât going to be easy. What they didnât know was how unlikely the first quarter of their 61-35 season-ending loss would be.
âI would like to take back the first quarter,â said head coach Mark Smith. âOur deal is we donât have the ability to offensive rebound.â
Smith said his teamâs lack of size also prevents the Miners (14-15) from keeping their opponents from offensive rebounding and itâs been a problem all season.
DUMAS â On paper, it was supposed to be no contest. But the Bauxite Lady Miners certainly contested though they fell short in a 44-33 season-ending loss to the Star City Lady Bulldogs in the opening round of the Class 4A South Region on Wednesday.
âI told the girls before the game that I felt like we were the only 20 people in the state that had a chance to beat this team,â said Bauxite head coach Joshua Harrison.
