Bryant, Pine Bluff scrimmage postponed

And in Monday’s scrimmage against Pine Bluff, the Hornets stayed true to his word as they marched down the field in their opening drive for a touchdown.
“We utilized that short passing game,” Calley said over the phone Tuesday morning.

Benton tennis loaded with seniors

August 19, 2011

BENTON — If there was ever a year where the Benton Panthers should run away with the season, it should be this year. With a squad made up of 18 seniors (10 boys and eight girls), the Benton tennis team should have no problem with their competition.
Especially since most of the squads they will be facing have almost no returning starters, including last year’s winners Lake Hamilton (boys) and Sheridan (girls).
Benton’s senior led team is due to the recruiting efforts of a core group of players about four years ago when they were freshman.
