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.

The Harmony Grove Football Cardinals opened the pre-season on Thursday night with the Second Annual Red and White game at Cardinal Stadium.
Only two years into a football program and the Cardinals are already looking like a somewhat mature football team.
“Last year no one could hear and pads wee popping in the stands,” said Assistant Head Coach Benji White.
“We want to hit people this year.”
The Cardinals started the scrimmage with a nice 50-yard pass from starting quarterback Matt Hollson.
