Power and Pitching: Lady Hornets hit three home runs and throw no-hitter

March 28, 2012

BRYANT – The Bryant Lady Hornets got a no-hitter from senior pitcher Peyton Jenkins, two home runs from sophomore Kaley Coppock and continued their undefeated season getting a 10-0 victory over the Mount Saint Mary’s Belles in 7A Central action on Tuesday at Lady Hornets Field.

“We did what we were supposed to,” Bryant Coach Debbie Clark said. “This is a game that we should win. I told the girls after spring break that this is a game we have to come in and take care of business. Those are the games as a coach that you kind of get worried about, but the girls came and did their jobs.”

March 28, 2012

HASKELL – The Harmony Grove Lady Cardinals’ softball team continued their winning ways following spring break on Monday and Tuesday. On Monday, the Lady Cardinals opened up their conference season with a rout over Glen Rose, 10-3. Tuesday was a litter tougher when Harmony Grove met up against Perryville for a 1-0 win at home.

Errors, missed chances lose it for Bauxite

March 28, 2012

NORTH LITTLE ROCK – The Bauxite Lady Miners were up 7-1 going into the bottom of the sixth inning, but errors and missed opportunities led to an 8-7 extra-inning loss to the Robinson Lady Senators on Monday at Burns Park in North Little Rock to start 7-4A conference play.

“You probably can’t print what I have to say,” Bauxite Coach Wes Mode said wryly. “It was Glen Rose all over again. We just can’t finish. We can’t deal with success, and yet we can’t handle adversity either. It’s kind of strange.”

Cardinals upset conference favorite Beavers

March 28, 2012

GLEN ROSE - The Harmony Grove Cardinals’ season has been everything but good so far this year. Coming off of a spring break road trip where they went 1-3 did not help the matter much either. With the conference season starting back up, the Cardinals had a lot on their plate as they headed in to Glen Rose to face one of the top teams in 3A this season.

With the odds stacked against them, the Cardinals played arguably the best game of the year as they used a strong offensive attack with an almost flawless defense to down the Beavers 5-2, picking up their first conference win of the season.

Arkansas Angels Pageants celebrate children with special needs

March 26, 2012

Nearly 14 years ago when B.J. and Johnathan Thorn exchanged nuptials, they had no idea the profound impact they would have one day on the lives of so many people. B.J., then 19, and Johnathan, 22, learned they were pregnant one month after returning from their honeymoon ... with twins.
"We didn't even have time to get to like each other," Thorn says.
The Thorns began making plans like any soon-to-be parents, but no amount of planning could have adequately prepared them for the early arrival of their daughters.
