After losing to Sheridan last week in 10 innings, the Lady Panthers currently sit in second place in the 6A South with two losses in conference, while Sheridan is 12-1.
Benton will face the El Dorado Lady Wildcats today at 4:30 p.m. at the Lady Panther Softball Complex. El Dorado currently has six seniors on the team and is fresh off a 2-1 loss to Lake Hamilton.
This morning rumors were abound that the Bryant Public Schools System was ready to name a new athletic director.

Bollen said the board will discuss â€śsome recommended hirings.â€ť However, Bollen said she could not confirm whether the meeting, which will go into executive session, will include any discussion of the athletic director position.
