Remembering Salt Bowls past

September 25, 2013

No other football game has this type of atmosphere that the Salt Bowl has. This game is about friends who become foes for one day out of the year and then after the games are over, past bitter rivals enjoy a lifetime of friendships. I have had the opportunity to talk to many participants of past Salt Bowls and this article is a result of their input concerning the Salt Bowl rivalry.

Tough day for Bryant golf

September 12, 2013

SHERWOOD – Bryant sophomore Drew Castleberry shot a 1-over 37 for the overall boys’ medalist, but the Hornets barely fell to North Little Rock at The Greens at North Hills in Sherwood on Monday. North Little Rock shot a 173 to Bryant’s 170.
“The pin placement had to be the hardest ones they had available,” Bryant Coach Keith Dale said of North Hills. “The greens were cut short, rolled and sanded that morning making a put stick next to impossible. The kids had a very hard time.”

Benton goes 3-1 in Spikefest

September 11, 2013

LITTLE ROCK – The Benton Lady Panthers competed in the Spikefest Tournament in Little Rock on Saturday and finished the day 3-1 between pool play and tournament matches.

Jr. Panthers take down Sheridan to open season

September 6, 2013

The Benton Junior High Panthers got their first taste of life in new stadium and the outcome was as sparkling as their new home. The freshmen Panthers defeated Sheridan 21-12 and the Benton eight graders won 40-20.
The freshmen Panthers got off to an inauspicious start. Sheridan recovered an onside kick to open the game. The Benton defense stiffened, forcing Sheridan to line up to punt on fourth down. But a fake by McKinley Williams resulted in a 52 yard touchdown for the Yellowjackets. The two-point conversion try failed, but Sheridan led early 6-0.
