Lady Panthers on a roll
The Benton Lady Panthers won their seventh consecutive match and improved to 4-0 in conference with a 3-0 sweep of the Texarkana Lady Razorbacks in Texarkana on Thursday. Benton took the match 25-21, 25-17 and 26-24.
“I thought we played well,” Benton Coach Brandy Chumley said. “Overall we stayed up. We try not to give them too many points in a row and that’s our game. We had the lead and we would let them back in.”
