Softball: Benton to face Greenbrier at home

April 11, 2011

After defeating El Dorado 14-2 Friday, the Benton Lady Panthers will face Greenbrier, the defending 5A State Champions, today at home if it doesn’t get rained out first.

“They are a very good ball club,” coach Eric Ryan said. “We will be tested today but games like today is what is going to make us better.”
Expected to pitch today is Lauren White, who pitched against Greenbrier last year.

“She had a very good outing against them and has really come along this year,” Ryan said. “She has shown more maturity this year and she has good control of her pitches on the mound.”

Jenna Bruick building legacy on, off field

April 9, 2011

For Bryant head softball coach Debbie Clark, junior Jenna Bruick embodies everything she wants in a player — and more.
The second baseman is a selfless, tireless worker whose "contribution to our program cannot be measured by stats or words," Clark said.
"Jenna is fearless and does not accept failure as an option."
As one of the "fab five" freshman from the squad two years ago, Bruick, 16, helped lead Bryant to a state championship last year.

Benton moves into second-place tie with win

April 9, 2011

The Benton Panthers defeated El Dorado 16-6 Friday night to move into a second place tie in the conference with Lake Hamilton after they lost Texarkana.
"It is a log jam, and I knew it would be," head coach Mark Balisterri said. "Our goal is to get the number one or number two spot. If we get second, we will still get a bye in the first round.
"That's what we are shooting for."
Benton broke a 4-4 tie in the top of the sixth inning, scoring seven runs to give the Panthers a 11-4 lead.
