Benton tennis loaded with seniors

August 19, 2011

BENTON — If there was ever a year where the Benton Panthers should run away with the season, it should be this year. With a squad made up of 18 seniors (10 boys and eight girls), the Benton tennis team should have no problem with their competition.
Especially since most of the squads they will be facing have almost no returning starters, including last year’s winners Lake Hamilton (boys) and Sheridan (girls).
Benton’s senior led team is due to the recruiting efforts of a core group of players about four years ago when they were freshman.

The Harmony Grove Football Cardinals opened the pre-season on Thursday night with the Second Annual Red and White game at Cardinal Stadium.
Only two years into a football program and the Cardinals are already looking like a somewhat mature football team.

“We want to hit people this year.”
The Cardinals started the scrimmage with a nice 50-yard pass from starting quarterback Matt Hollson.

New coach plans on making golf bigger at Bryant

August 18, 2011

The outdoor temperatures have been hovering around the mid-90s for months now.
Grass has been burned to a crisp, trees have changed colors, and rivers and streams have dried to a mere dirt box.
But none of that seems to be slowing down the very talented golf teams from Bryant High School.
Bryant is under the leadership of newly hired head coach Keith Dale.
This is not Dale’s first rodeo either.
He has coached at El Dorado, Arkadelphia, Jessieville, and Southern Arkansas University before moving his talents and knowledge to Bryant.
