FORT SMITH â€“ After both the Benton boys and girls bowling teams finished second to Cabot in the 7A/6A Central conference tournament, Benton went to Bowling World in Fort Smith for the 7A/6A State Tournament on Monday. The Panther girls took third place and the boys fourth, while Cabot boys and girls took first in state as well. Bentonville came in second for the girls, and Fayetteville and Mountain Home were the teams before the Benton boys.
BAUXITE â€“ Lady Miners head coach Joshua Harrison and his Bauxite Miners are no strangers to the Nashville Scrappers, playing each other nine times in the last three years, including a narrow 35-34 win at Nashville in January.
Wednesdayâ€™s 7-4A district matchup proved to be just as entertaining as the Miners escaped with a 61-57 win over Nashville, clinching a spot in the regional tournament.
â€śI know the type of team Nashville is,â€ť Harrison said. â€śThey fell from fourth to sixth [in conference] but theyâ€™re a team full of athletes.â€ť
BRYANT- The Bryant Hornets used a late fourth-quarter run in a 52-35 victory over the Texarkana Razorbacks on Tuesday night. The Bryant Hornets improve to 17-9 (6-6) on the year. The Hornets have won 6 of their past 8 games after starting the 7A/6A South 0-4.
â€śWe hit a few shots early,â€ť Bryant coach Mike Abrahamson said. â€śWe made some plays.â€ť
