BRYANT â€” The Bryant Lady Hornetsâ€™ inconsistency has subsided for the time being according to Coach Beth Solomon and it showed as Bryant defeated 7A Central conference foe North Little Rock 3-1 (22-25, 25-21, 25-18, 25-19) on Thursday night in Bryant.
Even though both the Lady Hornets and Lady Charging Wildcats have a 5-2 conference record, Bryant holds the tie-breaker between the two teams, giving them second place behind Conway.
The Sheridan Yellowjackets escaped the White Hall Bulldogs with a 13-8 win last week and it was the first time in 25 years that they picked up a victory in White Hall. Sheridan hits the road to Lake Hamilton to take on the Wolves this Friday in their first 6A South conference game.
The Yellowjackets are also 2-1 for the first time in a while according to Sheridan Coach Louis Campbell.
â€śAnd to think we gave the first one away â€¦ well I wonâ€™t go there and ruin the mood!â€ť Campbell said on www.sheridanfootball.com.
Both the Bryant boys and girlâ€™s golf teams placed second on Tuesday at Hurricane Creek Country Club. Cabot took first for both boys and girls, edging the Hornets by one shot, while North Little Rock brought up the rear.

Junior Austin Harmon shot a 1-over 37 including an eagle on the par-5 eighth hole, freshman Nick Canale shot a 3-over 39, and junior Aston Green shot a 40. Sophomore Chase Thornton added a 42.

Lady Hornets senior Callie Hogancamp defeated Brittney Yeamons 8-6 in Girls 1 singles and sophomore Whitney Butler beat Logan Moore 8-4 in Girls 2 singles for the singlesâ€™ sweep.
â€śCallie Hogancamp got back on the winning track and Whitney won her second conference match of the three so far,â€ť Bryant Coach Steve Wilson said.
The 2011 Karate for Christ tournament took place this past Saturday at The Centers at Bishop Park and it had its biggest turn out yet in its third year of existence in Arkansas.

The Sheridan Yellowjackets went down to White Hall and hung on for a win, defeating the Bulldogs 13-8. The Yellowjackets gave up 363 total yards to the Bulldogs in the low-scoring game, but was plus six in the turnover department, including four turnovers on downs, to take the victory.
â€śIt was ugly, but it was a win,â€ť Sheridan Coach Louis Campbell said. â€śThatâ€™s all that counts. â€ś
The Bryant Hornets took first place scoring a 154 at Hurricane Country Club, while the Lady Hornets scored a 139, coming in last on Thursday. Cabot shot a 161 for second and Lake Hamilton came in third with a 165. North Little Rock didnâ€™t field four golfers, so they did not qualify for a score.
Bryant junior Tyler Green shot a 4-under 32 to lead the Hornets to victory. Green started the round with three consecutive birdies and finished with five for the round. He had one bogey on the par-3 sixth hole, but was very good other than that.
On Sept. 8, after their win over Lake Hamilton, Benton coach Brandy Chumley said sometimes the Lady Panthers like to put themselves into holes just so they can get themselves out of it.
