Bryant Hornets senior and cross country runner Stacy Emmerling signed a letter of intent to run for the Henderson State Lady Reddies (Arkadelphia) on Thursday in Bryant Gym. Emmerling joins teammate Ashlyn Lessenberry, who signed with the Lady Reddies earlier this month.
â€śI visited there and they just seemed like a big happy family,â€ť Emmerling said of Henderson State. â€ś[The Lady Reddies] all connected with me and talked to me. They introduced me to all of their friends and made it comfortable for me.â€ť
DUMAS â€“ The Bauxite Miners knew Wednesdayâ€™s task of facing the No. 1 seed Pine Bluff Dollarway wasnâ€™t going to be easy. What they didnâ€™t know was how unlikely the first quarter of their 61-35 season-ending loss would be.
â€śI would like to take back the first quarter,â€ť said head coach Mark Smith. â€śOur deal is we donâ€™t have the ability to offensive rebound.â€ť
Smith said his teamâ€™s lack of size also prevents the Miners (14-15) from keeping their opponents from offensive rebounding and itâ€™s been a problem all season.
DUMAS â€“ On paper, it was supposed to be no contest. But the Bauxite Lady Miners certainly contested though they fell short in a 44-33 season-ending loss to the Star City Lady Bulldogs in the opening round of the Class 4A South Region on Wednesday.
â€śI told the girls before the game that I felt like we were the only 20 people in the state that had a chance to beat this team,â€ť said Bauxite head coach Joshua Harrison.
