Bryant places 2nd in tourney

September 18, 2012

The Bryant Lady Hornets volleyball team competed in the Lady Cyclone Tournament in Russellville over the weekend and though they fell just short of a first-place finish, the Lady Hornets still had a successful tournament.
“We came home with a second-place finish,” Bryant Coach Beth Solomon said. “I'm proud of that. I told the girls that we got out of this tournament what we needed.  I'm sad that we didn't win that last game, but the girls fought hard that game.  We needed this.  We needed to see this higher-level play that is more like what our postseason play will look like.”

Salt Bowl week is here

September 18, 2012

It took three more weeks than Saline County has been used to the past several years, but Salt Bowl week is officially here. The Benton Panthers and Bryant Hornets kicked off the week with a Salt Bowl press conference at War Memorial Stadium late Monday afternoon in preparation for Friday’s Salt Bowl at WMS in Little Rock.
“This one is a little bit different in that it’s not the first game of the year,” Salt Bowl organizer Shane Broadway said. “It’s Week 4, but this one counts. This is a conference clash and there is a lot more riding on the line than just county pride.”
