NORTH LITTLE ROCK â€“ Technically, the Bryant Everett Black Sox didnâ€™t go undefeated in the Junior American Legion State Tournament. Needing to beat the Sheridan Yellowjackets just once, opposed to Sheridan having to beat Bryant twice, the Black Sox routed Sheridan 10-5 in the first state championship game of the night. But, Sheridan lobbied for the first game to be a Bryant forfeit because of an ineligible player. The game was forfeited by Bryant, but Sheridan may have preferred the first loss to what was ahead for the Yellowjackets the second game.

â€śI am going to miss Bauxite and the people I worked with,â€ť Clancy said. â€śI am thankful for the opportunity that I had to work here and provide for my family.â€ť
