In what has been an unconventional start to the season, the Bauxite Miners have played two games so far in the 2012 season, but only have four quarters of action under their belt. Their season opener was spoiled by Hurricane Isaac after one quarter and was only able to squeeze in three quarters last week against Glen Rose.
Nevertheless, it hasnâ€™t been a pretty start for head coach Shane Clancy and his Miners. While the Miners havenâ€™t had a full body of work to go off of, the four quarters they have played are very indicative of the poor start.
The Benton Lady Panthers outscored the Little Rock Fair Lady War Eagles 75-11 in three matches to win their sixth straight match after starting the season 0-2. Benton won 3-0 (25-3, 25-1, 25-7) in its most lopsided match of the season and improved to 3-0 in the 7A/6A South. The Lady Panthersâ€™ junior varsity also had little trouble defeating Fairâ€™s JV, winning 2-0 (25-5, 25-10).
â€śFair is just not where they need to be,â€ť Benton Coach Brandy Chumley said. â€śWeâ€™re working on clicking on offense a little bit and those were good games to work on that. I thought we did pretty well.â€ť
