HASKELL â€” When deciding on where she wanted to play college softball next season, Harmony Grove senior Kristen Dempsey wanted to attend a program where she felt the most at home.
And for the Dempsey that place was Harding University in Searcy.
â€śWhen I got up there,â€ť Dempsey started, â€śit just felt like one of the best atmospheres I have ever been in.
â€śI wanted to go somewhere where it felt most like home.
â€śAnd when I walked on campus, it felt like home for me.â€ť
Dempsey signed her letter of intent on Tuesday inside the old gymnasium at Harmony Grove.
BRYANT â€“ After leading the Bryant Hornets to their third 7A state title in five years, senior Hornet Blaine Knight is reaping the rewards of being named the 7A Tournament MVP after a 10-0 Bryant shutout of the Fayetteville Purple Dogs in the 7A state championship game this past season. On Friday at Bryant High School, Knight signed a national letter of intent with the Arkansas Razorbacks to play baseball.
BRYANT â€” Starting out as a pitcher for the Bryant Lady Hornets, senior Jordan Williams wonâ€™t be in the circle when she goes to the next level. On Wednesday, Williams signed a national letter of intent to play softball for the Arkansas-Monticello Cotton Blossoms at Bryant High School.
According to Williams, there was no other place she would rather go than Monticello, where sheâ€™ll major in science with plans to become a coach.
