LeVart, Benton defeats Sheridan

April 1, 2011

BENTON — Leading the game 2-1 in the bottom of the third inning, Benton’s Bailey LeVart hit a three-run home run to give the Lady Panthers a four-run cushion as Benton ended up defeating Sheridan 6-3 Friday night at home.

“We have had several girls swinging a hot stick,” Benton coach Eric Ryan said. “It started back in Shreveport, and everybody got a good look at live pitching. Ever since then they have been real hot.
“That [home run] right there just shows you when somebody gets confident in what they can do, good things will happen.”

Sometimes you can’t buy a goal; other times they fall out of the sky.

Goals fell out of the sky as the Bryant Lady Hornets, led by Tarra Hendricks’ hat trick, easily defeated the Van Buren Lady Pointers 7-0 in conference soccer action Thursday at Hornet Stadium.

“I’m never going to complain about a shutout,” head coach Julie Long said. “Our defense always does a good job. Lindsay Brazil always does a good job on defense.”

Vance, Poland earn all-state; Panthers name five to all-conference

April 1, 2011

Eddie Poland and Luke Vance were named to the 6A All-State Team after the Benton Panthers finished the season as co-champions of the 6A South for the first time since 1989.

Poland, a three-year letterman, finished the season averaging nine points and three steals per game.

“He finished the season strong for us and was probably our best defender,” Benton coach Chris Nail said.

Nail said Poland will be visiting North Central Community College in Missouri, which is the same one former Panther Brandon Jones attended a couple of years ago.
