BENTON â€” It didn't take long for Bauxite senior Tristan Rogers to find her groove. Before Friday's annual charity basketball game, Rogers said "it had been a while" since she had shot the ball or played.
It didn't seem to matter though as she scored three points off the bench in the first quarter and would finish the game with about 14 points, including four three-pointers.
Rogers, an all-conference player for the Lady Miners, said afterward, "You never lose it."
Bauxite senior Tanner Bates was honored this week by being named by the Arkansas Activities Association to the 2011 All-State Team.
Two Lady Miners, seniors Elizabeth Harris and Haley Davis, were given All-Conference honors, as were three of Batesâ€™ teammates: sophomores Tyler Willis and Chris Revas and junior Ryan Weng.
Bates, 18, the son of Robert and Lisa Bates, signed a letter of intent earlier this month to play at Arkansas Baptist College in Little Rock,
Two Glen Rose student-athletes were given All-State honors Tuesday, and several were named All-Conference.
Senior Hollie Boles and sophomore Kylie Shepherd were named to the 2011 All-State for the 3A conference.
Boles had a .468 batting average on the season with two doubles, three triples and three home runs, driving in a total of 18 runs.
Shepherd batted .508 with nine doubles and driving in 17 runs.
