For most schools throughout the state, the Christmas and New Yearâ€™s holidays mean time off from homework, class and sports for athletes. But, not for the Harmony Grove senior high basketball teams. Both teams got back to work on Tuesday night, one day before even returning to school full time. The Lady Cardinals kicked the night off with a 3A conference match up against Episcopal. And what a Happy New Year it was for the Lady Cardinals, as they beat the Lady Wildcats 47-24.
The Bauxite Lady Miners came back from a big first-half deficit to defeat the Maumelle Lady Hornets 61-49 on Tuesday in 7-4A conference action at Fred Dawson Gym in Bauxite. The Lady Miners were outscored 14-7 in the first quarter.
Down 18-9 early in the second quarter, junior Mary Crow led the Lady Miners back. Crow hit a short jump shot at the 6:30 mark to spark a 5-0 run to make it an 18-14 Lady Hornets lead with 5:20 left. Maumelle (10-6, 2-1 7-4A) scored four straight points capped by a Daysha Ross 5-foot jumper to make it 22-14 with 4:15 left.
