MOUNTAIN HOME â€“ The Benton Panther golf team finished 8th out of 12 teams, shooting a 358, just four strokes from qualifying as a team in the 6A State round two today in the State Tournament at the par-72 Big Creek Golf and Country Club in Mountain Home on Monday. Benton finished fourth in the South.
â€śThis is some tough competition,â€ť Benton Coach David Torres said. â€śItâ€™s a wide-open, beautiful course. Itâ€™s well taken care of and the greens are well-groomed. Itâ€™s just the toughness of it; tough pin placement. This week, your putter was everything. Each green had two or three tiers.â€ť
BRYANT â€“ The Benton Lady Panthers picked up where they left off the last time they faced their county and 7A/6A South conference rival Bryant Hornets on Tuesday. The Lady Panthers swept the Lady Hornets for the second straight match, taking the match 3-0 (25-11, 25-20, 25-8) in Bryant.
