Three members of the Bryant girls basketball team were honored last week by the Arkansas Activities Association.
Sophomore McKenzie Adams was named to the 2011 7A All-Tournament Team.
Head coach Blake Condley said that, although the Lady Hornets lost in the first round to Rogers, Adams scored half of the teamâ€™s points in their only game of the tournament.
â€śShe played very aggressively,â€ť he said. â€śWe were in a position where other girls didnâ€™t score well, and she did.â€ť
The Bryant Lady Hornets finished in fifth place Friday night at the Russellville Cyclone Relays.
Bryant scored 61 points to finish behind team champion Lake Hamilton (80 points), North Little Rock (78), Fort Smith Northside (72) and Cabot (72). In all, 23 schools competed.
Highlighting the Lady Hornetsâ€™ performance was sophomore Alexis Royal, who scored a team high 30 points.Â Royal set a new Bryant school record with her winning leap in the triple jump.Â
The Bryant Hornets earned a seventh-place finish in the Cyclone Relays at Russellville Friday, earning 47.5 points in the 20-team field.
Fort Smith Southside won the event.Â
Troy Smith was the leading scorer for the Hornets, placing third in the high jump (6 feet), fourth in the 300-meter hurdles (41.99 seconds) and sixth in the 110-meter high hurdles (16.28).Â
Coach Steve Oury said Smith "has really come on this year in the hurdle races. Coach Keith Dale does a great job working with all of our hurdlers, and Troy has worked extremely hard."
