BENTON -- Over the past few years, the Benton Lady Panthers have become accustomed to big things on and off the diamond. With three 6A state runner-up finishes in the last four seasons, Benton has thrived on the field. But when the offseason hits, the thriving continues.
BRYANT â€“ All-State Bryant Lady Hornet golfer Peyton Weaver signed a letter of intent to play golf for the University of Arkansas at Little Rock on Wednesday at Bryant High School. Weaver, who was All-State at Stuttgart before moving to Bryant her sophomore season, was All-State at Bryant all three years and was the third-best golfer this season in the Overall State Golf Championship in Little Rock.
BRYANT â€“ Bryant Lady Hornet senior Kayla Jolley is joining a former Lady Hornet as she signed a letter of intent to play for the Ouachita Baptist University Lady Tigers on Wednesday at Bryant High School. Jolley joins former Bryant softball player Carly Yazza as a Lady Tiger.
â€śIâ€™m so excited joining Carly because weâ€™ve been best friends for years,â€ť Jolley said. â€śItâ€™ll help me get used to the environment. She can teach me the ropes so I can be relaxed and not stress about stuff.â€ť
BENTON â€“ Despite struggling for his worst game of the season last week in a 35-0 loss to the Wildcats in El Dorado, senior Panther quarterback Tarek Beaugard still has a chance to break the school record of 25 touchdown passes in a season. Earlroy â€śNubbinâ€ť Wray currently holds the record as Beaugard sits at 21 TDs, failing to throw for one last week and throwing a season-high three interceptions.
