It was a tale of two halves as the Bryant Lady Hornets lost 45-36 to the Little Rock Central Lady Tigers in the regular season finale for both teams in 7A Central action on Friday in the Central Fieldhouse. The Lady Hornets will be the No. 4 seed out of the Central and will play No. 5 seed Bentonville out of the West in the state tournament.
Up by five points at the half, the Bryant Hornets shot 22 percent in the second half and fell 43-41 to the Little Rock Central Tigers in the last regular-season game of the year at Central Fieldhouse on Friday. Since North Little Rock defeated Van Buren, the Hornets will have the No. 3 seed going into the 7A State Tournament in Cabot next week.
After two free throws by Centralâ€™s Kerry Young and long 3-pointer from Kyle Nelson, the Tigers took a 39-33 lead with 6:57 left in the game.
When the word â€śteamâ€ť makes its way into the brain, what is the first definition that comes to mind?
Is it a group of athletes? What about a band of brothers or sisters?
What if someone told you there was a group of seniors on the Harmony Grove senior girls basketball team that had more than most teams could ever hope for?
Of course, everyone wants to win it all in their last year. That is a given. But not winning it all and knowing that a team has given it its all in every game of the final season speaks louder than a title or any hardware could ever scream.
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
