HASKELL - The Harmony Grove Lady Cardinals have been the hottest team in Saline County all season. Now sitting at 30-2 overall on the year, Harmony Grove is looking for its fourth 3A State Championship since winning three in a row from 2002-04.
While many tournament roads are not easy to travel, the Lady Cardinals have made easy work of their opponent in tournament play, winning three straight before entering the 2013 State Tournament recently. Harmony Grove won the Woodlawn, 3A District and Region 2 Regional tournaments in three straight weekends and now has a chance at more heroics.
BENTON â€“ The Benton Panthers had a historic year this past season, winning a school-record 27 games opposed to just three losses, and losing in the semifinals of the 6A State Tournament. But the Panthers wouldnâ€™t have had their historic year, which included an undefeated 14-0 South Conference schedule, without two players who are trading in their paws for a different species.
BRYANT â€“ Former Bryant senior Brooke Howell provided plenty of power for the Lady Hornets in her All-State career. Howell is now taking that power to north Arkansas as she signed to play volleyball for the Williams Baptist Lady Eagles (Walnut Ridge) on Wednesday at Bryant High School.
In fact her power became legend after one of her spikes hit an opposing player above the shoulders which resulted in a trip to the emergency room. Bryant Coach Beth Solomon said Howell was definitely the hardest hitter sheâ€™s ever coached.
