Three Bryant Lady Hornet softball players all signed letters of intent to play at their respective colleges late Thursday morning in front of about 150 people in Love Auditorium on the Bryant High School campus.
The three players, Peyton Jenkins, Kayla Sory and Jessie â€śThe Beastâ€ť Taylor, could have had their own separate, special days to sign their letters, but the old friends wouldnâ€™t think of it.
Bryant senior baseball player Jordan Taylor signed a letter of intent to play for the University of Central Arkansas on Friday at noon in front of the Bryant gym. Friends, family and teammates witnessed the Hornetsâ€™ main pitcher sign.
â€śItâ€™s been fun,â€ť Jordan Taylor said. â€śItâ€™s been a lot of fun. Been through a lot with my brothers right here,â€ť referring to his teammates.
The Bauxite Lady Miners will kick off the Arkansas Alumni Girls Basketball Classic tournament held at Little Rock Hall High School. The Lady Miners will play the Lonoke Lady Jackrabbits in the opening game of the tournament at 4 p.m.
The Lady Miners will get to test their mettle against some of the top teams in the state last season. The tournament features six state tournament teams, including one quarterfinals team, three semifinal teams and a finals team.
The Bauxite Lady Miners scored the first 13 points of the game in a 52-24 win over rival Glen Rose Lady Beavers in the first regular season game of the season on Tuesday at Dawson Gym in Bauxite.
â€śFirst game I just didnâ€™t want us to come out a little amped up, not be able to hit any shots or let them stay in for too long,â€ť Bauxite Coach Josh Harrison said. â€śI felt like if we could get on them quick it could kind of get our butterflies out. We did a good job of that.â€ť
