Chemistry coming through

August 23, 2013

BENTON – Losing six seniors from a state playoff team may seem like a lot to lose going into the next season, but the Benton Lady Panthers volleyball team is not shy on experience.
“We have five seniors this year and they all pretty much played last year, or played some,” Benton Coach Brandy Chumley said. “They know what it takes, and I have a feeling they’re going to do what it takes to have a good year. It’s been fun so far.”
