Recovered Lady Miners look to tourney

April 27, 2011

With three starters potentially returning to the lineup, Bauxite head coach Wes Mode hopes the Lady Miners can produce some last-minute magic at the 4A-7 District Tournament in Ashdown.
If proven to be fully recovered, returning for the Lady Miners will be junior Bethany Edwards, sophomore Allie Beech and senior Shelby Wingate.
Both Edwards, Bauxite’s starting pitcher, and Wingate, who Mode said will start at first base, have been recovering from surgery. Beech broke a bone in her pinky finger earlier this season.

Unbelievable comeback gives Benton 12-11 win

April 27, 2011

BENTON — For the first time in his 21 years at Benton High School, coach Mark Balisterri witnessed the impossible. After trailing 11-0 after the top of the second inning, the Panthers were able to kick, scratch and crawl back to defeat Sheridan 12-11 at home Wednesday afternoon.
“I’ve never had a team down 11-0 and come back like that,” Balisterri said. “We came back because we hit the ball.
“Carson came in and just a phenomenal job [pitching] after being roughed up for five runs in the second.”

Lady Beavers need to ‘stay the course’

April 27, 2011

With an undefeated conference record, the Glen Rose Lady Beavers are going into the 3A-5 District Tournament as the No. 1 seed.
In doing so, Glen Rose has a bye until the semifinal round of the tournament, which is scheduled to start Friday at Mayflower.
No matter what happens Saturday, when the Lady Beavers first play, head coach Kyle Lem said his team will advance to the 3A Regional Tournament held at Harding Academy in Searcy starting Friday, May 6.
However, don’t expect the Lady Beavers to roll over any time soon.
“Obviously we want to win so we can get a higher seed,” Lem said.

Lady Cardinals prepare for Jessieville, district

April 27, 2011

With the rain and weather Saline County has received in the last couple of days, the phrase “everybody is in the same boat” flirts with being a bad pun rather than a tired out cliche.
But for the Harmony Grove Lady Cardinals (and the rest of the 3A-5 Conference), everybody is in the same boat as most of the teams have not played in nearly a week due to the constant interruptions by Mother Nature.
“I am worried about being rusty and all that stuff,” coach Sammi Massey said. “Mainly, I’m a little concerned with our defense. We haven’t been able to get on the field to practice.”
