LITTLE ROCK â€“ The Bryant Lady Hornets finished sixth and the Hornets eighth, while both Benton boys and girls took 16th in the 2014 7A/6A Arkansas State High School Swim Championships this past Friday with Catholic High School hosting. Bentonville ran away with the state meet with the girls scoring 471 points to top second-place Conway (253), and the boys topping Little Rock Central by 149 points, 409 - 260.
The Daytona 500 is a spectacle like none other in the racing world. With turns too steep to walk up and a crowd of a hundred thousand-plus donning legends on its shirts and hats, the February event ranks near the top of all championships in sports entertainment.
But the events that played out on Sunday may never be done again. With gentlemen and gentlewoman starting their engines just after noon on Sunday, the race quickly came to a halt â€” a 6-hour, 22-minute halt. With rain pouring down and showing no signs of letting up, drivers and fans took shelter until day turned to night.
CABOT â€“ The Benton bowling teams competed in the 7A/6A State Championship on Wednesday and the boys finished third overall (10 teams total) with 4,177 total pins, while the girls took fourth (10 teams) at 3,276. On the boysâ€™ end, host Cabot dominated with 4,880 pins, a new state record, and Cabotâ€™s Cayden Cook took top honors bowling and 842 series, another state record. Bentonville took second at 4,263.
For the girls, Bentonville would come out on top with 3,647, Cabot second (3,566) and Rogers third (3,316).
