LITTLE ROCK â€” In the six previous games against Glen Rose prior to last Thursday, the Harmony Grove Lady Cardinals were 1-5. After tromping the Lady Beavers 42-22 Thursday, Harmony Grove extended its season at least one more game after beating Glen Rose 43-31 Tuesday in the first round of the 5-3A District Tournament at Episcopal in Little Rock.
â€śItâ€™s elimination time and if you donâ€™t get the job done you go home,â€ť Head Coach John White said.
BRYANT â€“ Bryant senior track and field and cross country star Melinda Murdock's list of accomplishments as a Lady Hornet is pretty lengthy. On Thursday at Bryant High School, Murdock signed a letter of intent to take those accomplishments to the University of Memphis Lady Tigers to run track.
â€śMelinda Murdock is one of the greatest competitors and hardest workers I have coached," Bryant Cross Country Coach Danny Westrbook said. "She is a very unique athlete in that she excels in both distance running as well as sprint and hurdle events."
FAYETTEVILLE - After routing Appalachian State ace starter Jamie Nunn in Friday's 12-2 season opener, some might have presumed the Saturday and Sunday games would be a piece of cake for the Arkansas Razorbacks,Â No. 25 ranked by Baseball AmericaÂ and hosting at Baum Stadium.
They would have presumed wrong. The Razorbacks, now 3-0, did sweep the now 0-3 Mountaineers but it wasn't easy.
BRYANT â€“ There was little doubt in the minds of a duo of Bryant Lady Hornets of where they were going to college. Senior distance runners Marley Adams and Mikayla Douglas signed letters of intent to run for Henderson State University on Tuesday morning at Bryant High School, and the pair have known for several years they were to become Lady Reddies.
â€śIâ€™ve wanted to go there since the seventh grade,â€ť Adams said. â€śI just know theyâ€™ve had a really good team. I know upperclassmen that have gone there. Itâ€™s always been Henderson.â€ť
