The 2011 Karate for Christ tournament took place this past Saturday at The Centers at Bishop Park and it had its biggest turn out yet in its third year of existence in Arkansas. With about 150 entrants on one gym floor last year, this yearâ€™s event brought closer to 300 competitors from five states.
The Sheridan Yellowjackets went down to White Hall and hung on for a win, defeating the Bulldogs 13-8. The Yellowjackets gave up 363 total yards to the Bulldogs in the low-scoring game, but was plus six in the turnover department, including four turnovers on downs, to take the victory.
â€śIt was ugly, but it was a win,â€ť Sheridan Coach Louis Campbell said. â€śThatâ€™s all that counts. â€ś
The Bryant Hornets took first place scoring a 154 at Hurricane Country Club, while the Lady Hornets scored a 139, coming in last on Thursday. Cabot shot a 161 for second and Lake Hamilton came in third with a 165. North Little Rock didnâ€™t field four golfers, so they did not qualify for a score.
Bryant junior Tyler Green shot a 4-under 32 to lead the Hornets to victory. Green started the round with three consecutive birdies and finished with five for the round. He had one bogey on the par-3 sixth hole, but was very good other than that.
On Sept. 8, after their win over Lake Hamilton, Benton coach Brandy Chumley said sometimes the Lady Panthers like to put themselves into holes just so they can get themselves out of it.
Well, against Texarkana on Thursday, the Benton Lady Panthers volleyball team found themselves in one giant hole, trailing 2-1 to the Lady Razorbacks at home.
