Panthers fall short in semis

May 16, 2013

BENTON – After getting down 2-0 early in the quarterfinals of the 6A State Tournament to Russellville on Friday, the South No. 1 seed Benton Panthers scored 10 unanswered runs to win 10-2 to advance to the semifinals against the East No. 2 seed Jonesboro Golden Hurricane on Saturday. The Hurricane would jump on the Panthers for six runs in the first four innings, and though the Panthers fought back, Benton couldn’t finish the comeback falling 6-5 and wiping away the Panthers’ hopes for a matchup with Greenwood in the 6A State Championship at Baum Stadium in Fayetteville on Saturday.

Benton claws, but falls in opener

May 16, 2013

SEARCY – The Benton Lady Panthers fought hard, but fell 4-0 to the Mountain Home Lady Bombers in the first round of the 6A State Tournament in Searcy on Thursday.
It was a scoreless game until the Lady Bombers struck with about four minutes left in the first half to take a 1-0 lead at halftime.
“The score is not a true indicator of the way the game was played,” Benton Coach Jason Gentry said. “ It was a very even, physical game.  In the second half they pulled away because they could sub three to five girls at a time without much of a drop off in the talent.”

GLEN ROSE - Some teams go years without bringing home any tournament hardware, let alone three in one season. But for the Harmony Grove Lady Cardinals, all of the hard work has paid off. After winning the Woodlawn Tournament in comeback fashion two weeks ago, the Lady Cardinals have put together a phenomenal run, winning the 5-3A District Tournament and now the 3A Region 2 Regional over Bald Knob 5-2.

Bryant's Rice signs to play at next level

May 6, 2013

BRYANT – Two-time All-State and three-time All-Conference selection and Bryant Lady Hornet setter Hannah Rice is taking her talents South for the upcoming season. Rice signed a letter of intent to play volleyball for the Southern Arkansas University (Magnolia) Lady Muleriders on Wednesday at Bryant High School. There was little doubt in Rice's mind after visiting SAU.
"When I visited there, I loved the campus," Rice said. "I felt at home almost immediately. It wasn’t too big or too small. It was the perfect size. Their volleyball team is really good and I wanted to be a part of it."

Holloway shuts down Wolves

May 2, 2013

PEARCY – The Benton Panthers defeated the Lake Hamilton Wolves 6-1 in 7A/6A South conference action on Monday in Pearcy in a game which was originally scheduled for this past Friday at Panther Field.
With the win, Benton clinched the No. 1 seed in the 6A State Tournament from the 6A South conference.
Due to inclement weather in the two teams’ first scheduled game of the year at Lake Hamilton, the game was moved to Panther Field because of better field conditions and the Panthers and Wolves just swapped venues this past game.

May 1, 2013

There is a lot of excitement for Coach Bret Bielema's Razorback football team and that was demonstrated last Saturday with over 51,000 fans attending the Red-White football game in Fayetteville.  I saw that same enthusiasm in Benton on March 27, 2013, when Coach Bielema spoke at the Saline County Razorback Club Fish Fry in front of 600 die-hard fans.

Hornets rout Eagles

April 24, 2013

BRYANT – The Bryant Hornets soccer team wasted little time in dispensing of the JA Fair War Eagles 9-0 in 7A/6A South conference play on Friday at Hornets Stadium.
Junior Bryce Denker scored five goals in the win, the second time this season Denker has scored five goals in a game. But Denker didn’t start the game with a goal. It was an assist to senior Cameron Furton from Denker at the 36:14 mark of the first half that got the scoring started.
