August 25, 2011

The Benton Panthers kicked their season off Friday with their annual Maroon and Gray game at C.W. Lewis Stadium. With packed house on one side of the field and a partially packed side on the other, one would think it was a regular season football game. Too bad it was not. It was just a scrimmage.

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.
