BRYANT â€“ Bryant Lady Hornets senior starting pitcher Abby Staton signed to play softball at Central Baptist College (Conway) on Friday at Bryant High School and said there was no doubt that CBC was the place for her.
â€śIt had everything I wanted for a college,â€ť Staton said. â€śThe Christian environment, the down-to-earth atmosphere and the small class size is something Iâ€™m looking forward to because thatâ€™s the best way I learn and I want a relationship with all the teachers.
EL DORADO â€“ The Benton Lady Panthers snapped two big streaks on Friday night as they defeated the El Dorado Lady Wildcats 31-20 in El Dorado for the first time in seven years. Benton also snapped their current seven-game losing streak with the victory.
â€śIt was a good win for us,â€ť Benton Coach Jerry Chumley said. â€śWe stopped two seven-game losing streaks â€“ one that weâ€™re currently on and the one down at El Dorado.â€ť
Senior guard Braxton Chumley had her second straight 16-point game in the win, though the Lady Panthers (8-9, 1-2 South) didnâ€™t have a good offensive night.
WALDRON â€“ Though the Bauxite Lady Miners improved to 3-3 in the 7-4A Conference with a 50-29 victory over the Waldron Lady Bulldogs on the road Friday, Coach Cody Lambert, though happy with the win, didnâ€™t think his team played as well as it should have.
â€śWe didnâ€™t play very good, didnâ€™t execute our offense very well,â€ť Lambert said. â€śWe didnâ€™t get the loose balls, didnâ€™t block out very well, we just didnâ€™t do a very good job. But itâ€™s good when you can mess up on a lot of things and still have a dominate victory.â€ť
