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.

Lady Panthers relying on leadership

August 16, 2011

Two things will be key in order for the Benton Lady Panthers to be successful is their hitting and their aggressiveness at the net, especially on defense.
“I think hitting is one of our strengths,” coach Brandy Chumley said.
“But we are also going to have to improve on our defense.”
Chumley said she is currently trying to implement a new defense by taking away different angles and covering different arears.
“Again with so many changes, we are just trying to work and improve,” Chumley said.
“I think we will have a successful year and we should be competitive.”
