Tipton HOWLING for A-State

December 12, 2014

BRYANT — During his junior year at Bryant, utility baseball player Drew Tipton was placed into the outfield after playing his entire sophomore year in the infield. While some may have struggled with the new position, Tipton excelled.

“He is a very versatile player,” Bryant Head Coach Kirk Bock said. “Offensively, he can swing it. He brings a lot to the table.

“Last year, he was thrusted into an outfield role and he did a tremendous job.”

Panthers fall in OT

WHITE HALL – In a close game throughout, the Benton Panthers fell 61-59 to the White Hall Bulldogs on Tuesday night. It was the first game in which the Benton basketball team became a lot deeper as players from the 6A state runner-up football team played for the first time. Football and basketball and all-state junior guard Cason Maertens returned to the court, as did seniors Julius Lewis and Tyrin Hollis, and juniors Jeremiah Bowling and Hunter Howe.

But with the new faces on the court, the Panthers are still trying to get on the same page.
