Benton seniors to cheer for Hogs

April 22, 2011

Two Benton High School students, Jacie Gregory and Jenny Belz, will be cheering for the Arkansas Razorbacks next year.
However, unlike most Fayetteville freshman they will be doing so on the sidelines because both were named earlier this month to the 2011 cheerleading squad.
Belz, 17, the daughter of Dan and Mary Belz, and Gregory, 17, the daughter of Jim and Jana Gregory, will join former Panthers cheerleader Carly Glover, 19, who graduated from Benton in 2010.

Hornets look to pull away with doubleheader

April 21, 2011

With a two-game lead in the 6A South, Bryant is looking to distance itself from the competition in a doubleheader with Van Buren today.
Weather permitting, Bryant will host Van Buren beginning at 4 p.m. However, head coach Mike Bock said there are a handful of options “depending on what the weather does.”
If needed, Bock said both teams could play today at UALR’s Curran Conway Field, or the Hornets could jump on a bus and head to Van Buren.
Also, the game could be rescheduled for tomorrow at either Sheridan or Van Buren.

Benton to face Texarkana Friday

April 21, 2011

“I don’t think there was a game played yesterday in the state,” Benton head coach Eric Ryan said Thursday morning after Wednesday’s storms postponed the scheduled game between Lake Hamilton and the Lady Panthers.
Benton (18-5, 9-1 6A South) will play at Texarkana Friday at 5 p.m. The game against Lake Hamilton has been moved to Thursday, May 5. Ryan said they considered moving the game to today, but with more bad weather expected to hit this afternoon Ryan didn’t want to risk it.
Ryan said Texarkana has really improved throughout the year and are a “scrappy bunch.”
