The Bauxite Lady Miners scored the first 13 points of the game in a 52-24 win over rival Glen Rose Lady Beavers in the first regular season game of the season on Tuesday at Dawson Gym in Bauxite.
â€śFirst game I just didnâ€™t want us to come out a little amped up, not be able to hit any shots or let them stay in for too long,â€ť Bauxite Coach Josh Harrison said. â€śI felt like if we could get on them quick it could kind of get our butterflies out. We did a good job of that.â€ť
The Bauxite Lady Minersâ€™ basketball team tied for second place in the class 7-4A conference last season, but had a chance to go undefeated in conference play. The Lady Miners (24-6, 10-3 7-4A last year) lost to the team they tied for second with, Malvern, twice by two points, and lost to first-place Pulaski Academy by one. Bauxite then lost to Malvern by two in the semifinals of the conference tournament.
The Sheridan Yellowjacketsâ€™ bid to host a first-round playoff game came to an end when they dropped a 28-21 decision to the Arkansas High Razorbacks in Texarkana on Friday night. The Yellowjackets scored 14 points in the final four minutes, but couldnâ€™t get it done in the end.
â€śToo little too late,â€ť Sheridan Coach Louis Campbell said. â€śWe didnâ€™t play very good on defense. We gave them 21 points. They had a fumble returned for a touchdown. That was 28 points.â€ť
