South Champions

October 17, 2013

BENTON – Talk about domination. The Benton Lady Panther volleyball team clinched the 7A/6A South conference with a 3-0 sweep of second place Lake Hamilton Lady Wolves on Tuesday night at Benton Arena. Benton won 25-20, 25-22 and cruised in the third set with a 25-14 win, and has swept every conference match this season with one to go against El Dorado at home on Senior Night Thursday.
“This is the first year we’ve gone undefeated and sweeping everyone,” Benton Coach Brandy Chumley said. “It’s never been done. This team is a really good team and that’s a testament to them.”

Panthers to 3-3 overall and 2-3 in the Central Arkansas Junior High Conference.

In a memo to Benton School District staff members on Oct. 16, Superintendent Jeff Collum noted that an executive session held during the school board's regular meeting on Oct. 14 illegally discussed a proposed salary scale for teachers.
