Bauxite's Elizabeth Harris 'hates to lose'

April 23, 2011

In her first game for the Lady Miners three years ago, Elizabeth Harris didn't even know where she would be in the lineup, which head coach Wes Mode announced as the game was starting against the defending state champions.
"My name was first, and I was playing center field," she said. "I looked at coach Mode and said, 'Are you nuts?!'"
The freshman leadoff hitter, who's now a senior and still bats first in the Bauxite lineup, calmed her nerves, stepped up to the plate and hit a double.
"After that hit I was fine," she said.

Panthers win in extra innings

April 23, 2011

In a 6A South battle Friday night, Benton and Texarkana went into extra innings with Benton winning 3-2 thanks to a clutch two-out hit by senior Ashton Roberts.
Tied 2-2 in the top of the eighth with junior Garrison Roy on second base, Roberts hit a double to score Roy, which would prove to be the winning run after the Panthers held Texarkana scoreless in its next at bat.
Benton (17-4, 9-2 6A South) remains in first place in the conference and will host Sheridan at 5 p.m. Wednesday.
