LITTLE ROCK â€“ It wasnâ€™t pretty, but the Bauxite Lady Miners came away with a 42-32 victory over the Robinson Lady Senators on Tuesday night in Little Rock in 7-4A conference play.
â€śComing in, they didnâ€™t have a conference win, but they played everybody really tough,â€ť Bauxite Coach Josh Harrison said of the Lady Senators. â€śThey didnâ€™t really have anything to lose. They were just as physical and aggressive as they could possibly be.â€ť
