The Saline Courier and the Saline County Striders have teamed up to bring news and information related to running each Monday to the newspaper.
Running is a growing activity in the county and interest in how to get started or finding others who run has increased.
Chris Hall, chairman of the Striders, and Jonathan Young will be coordinate articles about recent races, the benefits of running and other information related to the sport. Photographs and race times of participants will also be part of the project.
BRYANT â€“ After the Bryant Lady Hornets came up with the upset victory over their Benton counterparts, the Hornets couldnâ€™t duplicate the feat as the Benton Panthers swept Bryant this season and took the Saline County Shootout trophy with a 73-60 win over Bryant on Wednesday night at the Hornetsâ€™ Nest in Bryant.
â€śThe good thing about it is, number one it was a sweep of Bryant,â€ť Benton Coach Dwaine Fishburn said, â€śnumber two, now weâ€™re in sole possession of first place, and number three, weâ€™re defending conference champions.â€ť
